All types of craziness has been going on today. Marshawn Lynch is a Seachicken and Randy Moss could possibly, maybe, be a Viking. Here are some possible fallouts and pickups and other stuff.
Randy Moss: This trade would help Moss. Favre has nobody to throw to right now. Think Sidney Rice, but with Randy Moss’ ability. If this happens you know Moss will want to show the world he is still the best and Favre will give him every opportunity.
Tom Brady: Yes, these are all speculative blurbs, but I thought I’d throw them at you just in case. Brady’s value would have to take a hit with his best receiver being shipped off. Tate, who you will see below, would try to stretch the field, but nobody stretches the field like Moss.
Brett Favre: Moss would take Favre into the way back machine, all the way to last season. If he has been dropped and this deal happens, he is a must add.
Brandon Tate: He was already seeing some targets and with Moss gone he could be stud-like. His ability in the open field makes an up in targets a very good thing.
Aaron Hernandez: See above.
Marshawn Lynch: Lynch is only 24 and is going to a slightly better (maybe) offense in an easier division. He is a must pickup since I don’t see him not being the early down/goal line back. Of course this turns Justin Forsett into a change of pace/3rd down back, which is very much like Darren Sproles, who is off and on your team.
C.J. Spiller: Cornelius Jay Spiller gains value with the departure of Lynch, but of course so does Fred Jackson. Spiller’s big play ability gives him a chance of being useful on 10-15 touches a week and hopefully 5 of those will be receptions and give him a boost in PPR leagues. I’m not going crazy for him on the not so productive Bills team, but at least he may work as a flex play now. I think jackson becomes a flex play now as well.
LaGarrette Blount: He’s for sure a pickup in dynasty leagues and it looks like his role will continue to increase if he plays better than a slug, but Kareem Huggins should start to get 3rd down/passing down work and even though Caddilac says his role will be decreasing, he will still be used. Blount has the most upside for this season, but don’t expect huge games any time soon.
Brandon Jacobs: If he has been dropped I think you have to grab him. I really don’t like him, but Bradshaw is banged up. It’s still too early to tell if he will miss any time, but even if he doesn’t, it’s worrisome.
Mike Bell: Lesean McCoy’s rib injury is one of those pain management kind of injuries. So if he doesn’t go you can call him a huge wuss. We’ll have to see if he practices, but if you are desperate you can grab Mike Bell. He won’t be the only guy getting touches with Parker and another Bell getting a few snaps so I’m pretty bluh on the whole concept.
Ryan Torain: He’s probably not available, but in case he is, you need to grab him. Clinton Portis said he heard his groin pop. And even though I’ve seen sounds like schwing and boing associated with that area, I don’t think a literal POP is a sound you want emanating from down there.
Sam Bradford: He is playing well and is a worthy backup, especially against Detroit this week. And if he can continue to improve as the season goes on he could be worthwhile as the fantasy playoffs come around.
Kevin Kolb: If you’ve lost Vick and Kolb is on the wire he is worth grabbing. The Eagles offense is too good and Kolb, even if he is dinking and dunking will be useful.
Danny Woodhead: He could be taking the place of Kevin Faulk and his scrappiness. He is also listed as a RB/WR in some formats and could be a sneaky play as your #3 receiver.
Kenny Britt: With an injury to Justin Gage it looks like Britt will get an opportunity again. He has scored in the last two games and has the ability to do something in this here NFL if he can stop dropping passes and sucking.
