    Thanks for telling everyone who I was workingon!! Connor is is very interesting why would he beat out Beason?

    • DLFKenK says:

      If the Panthers believe Beason (the obviously more talented player) can be successful outside and Connor can’t, they’re said to be contemplating that switch.

      It’s a rare case where the more talented player could be put in a less desirable position.

    I’ve been targeting a large majority of these guys over the last few weeks in my dynasty league. I sure hope no one in my league reads this article…
    This only 2 you probably should have on your list would be Jimmy Graham and Mike Williams (TB). Both will be significantly more expensive this time next year.
    Regardless, that is quite a comprehensive list of ‘buys’ that you put together.

  3. Dan Y. says:

    This is an unbeleivable list…I drafted Dez Bryant in the 8 round, snatched blount, J stew and V Jax off waivers early…yeah, I play w/idiots that don’t/can’t read…better for me!

    Thoughts on the Jets, Greene? Will roles be reversed in 2011? And Greene carry the load?

    • DLF_Jeff says:

      Probably going to happen at some point, but L.T. looks to have another year in him and Greene has terrible hands. Joe McKnight should pick up L.T.’s 3rd down work but he hasn’t yet been really tested.

  5. ScottD says:

    One other name to check in is Larry Fitzgerald. It’s simply not possible that Arizona QBs could be any worse and Fitzgerald was still a top 20 WR. If Arizona addresses QB, he could easily move back into elite status. His owner may be down on him and he could be a relative bargain.

    What do you see happening with James Starks and Anthony Dixon?

    • DLFKenK says:

      I think anyone who claims they know what’s going to happen with these guys isn’t anyone worth reading.

      That being said, I don’t think Starks has shown enough thus to merit the Packers not bringing back Grant. If I was to guess right now, I’d bet Starks is the “2” in a 1-2 type of backfield next year.

      Dixon is an intriguing stash, especially with Gore possibly beginning the decline phase in his career. He’s one to exercise extreme patience with.

        Thanks for the response. You have a great site and I look forward to reading your articles and feedback. Keep up the great work!

    One name I didn’t see mentioned is Jared Cook. Scaife will be shown the door in Tenn and Cook will be the TE in a very TE friendly offense.

    • Ken Kelly says:

      I think the word could be out on Cook at this point, but yes, he’s absolutely a “buy” candidate at this point. I see him as a solid #2 next year, with the potential of being a #1TE in the future.

  8. SpaderDude says:

    I’m a big believer in J-Stews talent, but the situation in Carolina is brutal. If Williams moves on, that would be the 1st step, but another option at QB other than Clausen is probably an even more important step for Stewart’s fantasy value. Thoughts?

    • DLF Ken K says:

      It’s certainly a factor, but considering that he’s ran for over 1,000 yards in the 11 games he started at the end of last year and this year combined, I’m not quite as worried about it.

      In games where he’s been the bellcow, he’s averaged over 104 yards per game…with Delhomme, Clausen, or Matt Moore as the quarterbacks.

      I actually look at the opposite way. What kind of numbers could this guy put up if/when they get their quarterback figured out in the next couple of seasons?

      • SpaderDude says:

        I just hope they don’t run the poor guy into the ground and give him little support. Could be a lot like Steven Jackson part 2. Without the threat of a quality passer, he may still rack up yards because of his talent, but might not reach full top 5-10 fantasy status due to the lack of goal-line opportunities. It will certainly be an interesting off season for the Panthers.

        Thanks for the reply. Keep up the great work. Love the site.

    I have Mercedes Lewis as my #1 TE, but his contract has expired and he is a restricted free agent. Jarod Cook and Rob Gronkowski are both on my taxi squad. I can resign Lewis, or I can sign and trade him and bring up Cook and/or Gronkowski. Or I can leave either Cook or Gronkowski on my taxi squad and play a two TE rotation. Which would have the most trade value, and should I trade any of them. Suggestions?

    • DLFKenK says:

      I think Cook and Gronkowski will be more than adequate for you in the future. I’d dangle Lewis to someone who believes he has staying power in the top tier.

      Personally, I don’t think he’s in the same class with the guys he scored close to this season and I’d be surprised to see him repeat his numbers again and again.

      As far as trade value goes, it all depends on the coach you’re dealing with. I’d try to find a competitive team to deal Lewis to. A rebuilder likely wouldn’t give you the value you’re looking for.

      Remember, a trade is a two way street. It’s not about what YOU want, it’s about what THEY want, too.

      • Dig Dug says:

        So would you suggest that I not resign Lewis? We are only allowed to francise one player, and I was thinking of francising Lewis. Otherwise I could save the dollars to address other needs.

  10. Dig Dug says:

    Really nobody with any long-term value. I just traded Joe Flacco who’s contract just expired. The only other notable is Ray Lewis. I’m building a young team (I have 7 of the first 16 picks in the 2011 draft), and I don’t see Lewis as being worth my franchise tag.

  11. Dig Dug says:

    I have an opportunity to trade LeSean McCoy for this year’s 1:01 and 1:06. I already own 1:04. Do you think that I should make the deal?
