With the draft approaching, it’s time to check the stock market. This list of “sell” players is compiled of players whose value could decrease after the draft. While some of these players will see their values remain static, you may want to seriously consider moving them before the draft. Their value may truly never be higher.
Arian Foster RB HOU
It’s apparent that Houston is interested in a RB in the draft. If you have a novice FFB player in your dynasty league, now is the time (it’s actually past the time, really) to cite his amazing end to the season.
Jerome Harrison RB CLE
He had a huge final month in 2009, but he was also on pace for 500 carries! Nobody can do that, especially not a small guy like Harrison. If you have an owner who believes he’ll be a featured back, take advantage.
Chad Ochocinco WR CIN
I love Chad, even though his dancing is awful. Fact is, he’s 32 and people don’t remember his 53/540/4 line more than his 72/1047/9 season from last year. His decline is coming very, very soon. The Bengals will be looking for his replacement.
Randy Moss WR NE
If you’re a rebuilding team, it’s time to move Moss. He’ll likely have 3 or 4 more good seasons, but this is likely his last in NE, and we see what happens when Randy isn’t motivated. The Pats hosted Dez Bryant, so their looking at least. The Pats rarely pay aging players, so this is likely Randy’s last stand.
Ricky Williams RB MIA
How many people thought 241/1121/11 was possible at his age? Probably the same number of people who think it’s going to happen again. I won’t be surprised to see Miami jump on Spiller.
Brandon Jacobs RB NYG
His decline was apparent last year and will not surprise me a bit to see the G-men get Hardesty, Tate, or even let Bradshaw and Ware be more in the mix.
Thomas Jones RB KC
You probably missed the boat here, but if you haven’t…
Kevin Smith RB DET
He’s been injured and the Lions seem pretty interested in taking a RB like Jahvid Best. The wouldn’t be…well…best for Kevin.
Kyle Orton QB DEN
I don’t believe that Quinn is the answer in Denver. I don’t believe Orton is, either.
Fred Jackson RB BUF
I know, I know, Marshawn Lynch will likely be traded. In fact, this one comes with a caveat to wait until that actually happens before you strike. Anyone want to venture a guess on how old Fred is? That’s right – 29. Do all the owners in YOUR league realize that? Rumor has it the Bills are high on Toby Gerhart.
Joseph Addai RB IND
He had a good year…but did you realize he only had 828 yards last year? Brown will likely get a bigger piece of the pie this year.
Marion Barber RB DAL
There’s some guy named Felix who seems to be the flavor of the year. I’d be shopping Barber pretty hard right now.
Julius Jones RB SEA
You won’t get much, but you’ll likely get nothing in a couple of weeks.
Steve Smith WR CAR
He wants to be a #2 WR – the Panthers might just let him. Besides, I don’t have a ton of faith in Matt Moore.
Guys to consider moving if you’re more than three years from competing: Frank Gore, Steven Jackson, Reggie Wayne, DeAngelo Williams, Michael Turner, Tom Brady.
