The Bait and Switch Week 3: Who to Trade and Trade For

Image 9-17-13 at 11.44 PM

Time to take a look at players that we should look to be moving and players that we should be trying to acquire.  It’s time to bamboozle these fools with the Bait and Switch:

The Bait

Cam Newton

The reason we liked Cam Newton so much coming into drafts was because he RUNS.  Well, that’s just not happening.  Neither is the passing.  The Panthers refuse to give this guy any help (Ted Ginn and Dominick Hixon?) and his OC is not unleashing his Offensive Weapon.  Sell high.

Doug Martin

I’m not sure how many shares you want in the Bucs offense right now.  They are a mess.  Martin is getting featured, but he is not catching any passes and we could see this team self implode.  If you can get back FULL VALUE for him, I wouldn’t have a problem moving him.

Darren McFadden

He’s healthy and he’s coming off his best matchup of the season against the ‘God Hates Jags’.  Pryor is helping to open up lanes, but this might be the last time you can move the talented RB.

Chris Johnson

CJ has some matchups coming up with the Jets, Hawks, 49ers, and KC, so moving him now might be your best move.  He is getting a ton of carries, but the offense stinks, Locker stinks, and CJ in PPR leagues stinks.  Move if you can get optimum value back. 

The Switch

Trent Richardson

Finally, Richardson gets Josh Gordon back.  This will open up running lanes by getting that 7th and 8th guys out of the box.  Richardson hasn’t lived up to his first round status, but he is a guy who will be featured in the passing game and at the stripe.  Now is the time to grab him.

David Wilson

Wilson has pretty much burned his owners at this point and probably could be had for a Spam sandwich.  The Giants NEED him and they KNOW it.  Brandon Jacobs?  LMAO.  Wilson just needs the touches and his coach to believe in him.  It will happen.

Frank Gore

Gore has been shut down, but I’m not worried.  Playing the Seahawks and the 12th man is no walk in the park.  He really can beat every matchup the rest of the way, until week 14 and the Hawks again.  A great buy low.

Let’s Get Wired Up in Week 3!
