Nfl Tickets – Fantasy: Sell High Candidates

Here are some players that you might want to consider trading while their stock is high in your fantasy football league:

Austin Collie, Wide Receiver, Indianapolis Colts: I think Collie will have legitimate fantasy value for the duration of the season, but there’s a good chance that his stock will never be higher than it is going into Week 5. He’s leading all wideouts in fantasy points and has scored in every game of the season thus far. His name might not sell a ton of NFL tickets right now, but he can probably fetch a nice price on the fantasy trade market.

Darren McFadden, Running Back, Oakland Raiders: McFadden has been a beast in 2010, finally making good on all the promise he showed in college. However, he experienced his first injury of the regular season in Week 4 and Michael Bush has returned to 100 percent health. Even if McFadden bounces back from injury well, Bush could cut into his workload.

Jahvid Best, Running Back, Detroit Lions: Best could still be a monster for the remainder of 2010, but I’d ship him if I could get a more reliable back. Best is a tantalizing talent, but he’s injury prone and plays on a team that is frequently behind. Don’t take 50 cents on the dollar for him or anything, but consider shopping him if there’s interest.

Brandon Lloyd, Wide Receiver, Denver Broncos: We’ve seen this from Lloyd before. That’s not to say that he hasn’t finally figured it out, but we have definitely been down this road. Trading him is risky, but keeping him is equally as risky. If you can get a more proven player in return, do it.

Tom Brady, Quarterback, New England Patriots: Brady will be a viable fantasy starter for the rest of the year, but a lot of his upside left town with Randy Moss. If you can snag another reliable quarterback and another good player for him, you might want to consider it.

Mike Tolbert, Running Back, San Diego Chargers: Tolbert is not going to be the feature back in San Diego for the long term, so getting rid of him now for anything substantial is probably worth it.

Braylon Edwards, Wide Receiver, New York Jets: Edwards has had a solid start to the 2010 season, but with Santonio Holmes returning from suspension you can expect his production to decrease. Plus, it’s not a lock that Mark Sanchez can stay consistent.

Terrell Owens, Wide Receiver, Cincinnati Bengals: I think T.O. is actually going to be a pretty solid WR2 or flex play a lot of weeks this season, but if you can find someone that is overrating to his huge Week 4 you should make the most of it.

Roy Williams, Wide Receiver, Dallas Cowboys: Williams probably had his best game of the entire season in Week 3 and I don’t expect him to be a major focal point of this offense in any way. Dez Bryant just has too much talent and Miles Austin is a stud.

Nfl Tickets – Mvp Candidates

Here are my 2010 MVP candidates in the National Football League as of Nov. 12:

Michael Vick, Quarterback, Philadelphia Eagles: What a storyline this would be. Vick wasn’t even expected to start for the Eagles coming in 2010 and some questioned whether he’d ever start for any NFL team again. However, Vick has been electric on the field this season. The Eagles have won all of the games in which Vick has started and finished the game and he’s put up great numbers in leading Philadelphia to wins. Vick has really improved as a passer and is making the most out of his dynamic offensive weapons.

Philip Rivers, Quarterback, San Diego Chargers: If he wasn’t before this season, Rivers is officially an elite quarterback. Rivers has been working with a subpar receiving corps all season long and has been putting up huge game after huge game. He and Antonio Gates have been the only guys keeping this team in the playoff hunt. If the Chargers make the postseason, it will be hard to give the MVP Award to anyone other than Rivers, who is on pace to break the single-season passing yardage record.

Peyton Manning, Quarterback, Indianapolis Colts: Manning is always in the picture for MVP, as he’s already won the award four times. However, one could make a case that 2010 could be his most deserving season. Sure the Colts are 5-3, which is not great, but what would they be without Manning? Indianapolis has experienced major injuries to the defense, receiving corps and backfield, yet they’re still tied atop the NFL’s most competitive division.

Eli Manning, Quarterback, New York Giants: Manning is putting together a very good statistical season and the Giants could very well be the best team in the league. Manning doesn’t get enough credit for the career he’s putting together in New York, as he’s about as reliable as they come. If the Giants continue their dominance, Manning could make a real run at the award.

Arian Foster, Running Back, Houston Texans: The award usually goes to a quarterback, but Foster has been phenomenal in his first full season as a starter. He’s shown himself to be a hard yet elusive runner and a very good receiver. He might be the best player in the Houston offense, which is saying something considering Andre Johnson is on the team. The Texans will have to make the playoffs for him to get consideration for the award, though.

Rashard Mendenhall, Running Back, Pittsburgh Steelers: Mendenhall hasn’t been off-the-charts good or anything, but he kept the team afloat while Big Ben was out and hasn’t had a ton of holes to run through thanks to a shaky offensive line.

Darren McFadden, Running Back, Oakland Raiders: McFadden is finally selling NFL tickets the way Al Davis has always dreamed, and the Oakland offense looks completely different as a result. If they win the AFC West, you’d have to at least put him in the conversation.

Roddy White, Wide Receiver, Atlanta Falcons: Receivers don’t win this award, but I thought White was worth mentioning. He and Matt Ryan might have the best chemistry of any tandem in the league. As far as it relates to his team and his role for the Falcons, White might be the purest number one wideout around.
