I have Holmes on my non Wiener league. I'm also 0-4. I could have won a couple of games if I played the right people, but obviously didn't. I have 2 offers for Holmes right now: Holmes and Erron Kinney (TE) for Doug Jolley (TE) and Randy Moss. I'm thinking no, if only because it leaves me with Kevan Barlow as my #1 RB. Kinney and Jolley basically draw, so it's Holmes for Moss and me taking a big hit at RB.
Offer 2: Culpepper and Lamar Gordon for Holmes.I don't know if Culpepper is any better than my current options of Gannon or Blake and I picked up Frerotte this week. Gordon has a bye this week and then could only get 1 more game, right?

I'm thinking these aren't really up to scratch, but is there anybody you'd trade Holmes for if you could?

I wouldn't trade Holmes unless I could get another 100 yard back and a good receiver. Something like Holmes for Stephen Davis and insert your favorite receiver here.

If I were you though I would hang on to him. He is a fantasy stud.



WIENER OF THE DAY! July 6, 2002!

If I lived back in the wild west days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I'd carry a soldering iron. That way, if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like "Hey, look. He's carrying a soldering iron!" and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, "That's right, it's a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice." Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink.

Ffej is right, the only way you trade Holmes is if someone offers you a stud RB and a top flight WR or QB.
The Jolley/Moss trade is bad because WR are inconsistant, and TE don't do jack on a regular basis.
Culpepper and Gordon is bad because Gordon will lose his starting slot when Faulk returns and Culpepper has 3 broken bones in his back, I know he is slated to return in 3 weeks (off this week, bye next then plays) but I doubt he will be fully heeled and he could go down again at any time.
If you want to evaluate the trade look at how many points per week you are giving up and haw many you would be getting.




Now you will receive us.

It is your corrupt we claim.
It is your evil that will be sought by us.

There are varying degrees of evil. We urge you lesser forms of filth, not to push the bounds and cross over, in to true corruption, into our domain.
For if you do, one day you will look behind you and you will see we three, and on that day you will reap it.

Do not trade Priest Holmes. If you get a swank deal involving another stud RB, and a stud WR or QB, then do it, but, I wouldn't do it for either of those two guys. I'm not quite sure how you can have him and not have at least one win so far. You either played against the wrong people, or the rest of your team isn't very good.

Kevan Barlow isn't even the number one back in SF right now, so making him yours isn't a wise move. Lamar Gordon makes for a decent fill-in, but, Faulk is out a minimum of four weeks starting last week, and since he's recovering from a broken hand AND knee surgery, I'd put the estimate closer to the six week side. Daunte Culpepper's nice, but as stated, he's probably out two more weeks, and I'd still want a better back. Erron Kinney's about even with Doug Jolley, and Holmes is 150 bajillion times a better fantasy player than Randy Moss is.

Holmes is money in the bank, you can't move him. In fantasy football (at least in the ones I'm in), touchdowns are where it's at. Holmes is good for at least one, often 2 a week. Kevan Barlow is nothing when it comes to fantasy football, so unless your best WR is Matthew Hatchette, the upgrade from who you have to Randy Moss isn't going to be worth downgrading from Holmes to Barlow. If it were me, I wouldn't move Holmes unless I was getting a top flight RB in return plus a significant upgrade at another position as well. Priest Holmes now is like Marshall Faulk in 1999 - he's the one guy who if you have him you should probably win every week. That's a lot to give up.

A little of both, plus the crap manager.
Week 1 - 102 to 82 beaten in every category except QB, RB and K
Week 2 - 94 - 130 6 points from my QB and he had Jamal Lewis and his billion yards. Lost 21-8 at WR.
Week 3 - 68 - 73 started Gannon for 2.7 points. Blake on the bench got 23.5.
Week 4 - 35 - 78 Just awful. 65 points on my bench. Swapped Gannon and Blake and got roasted in reverse. -2 from 49ers D.

I could have won week 3, maybe 4 if I play the right guys, but how many teams can say that?
If I could get ANY production from Peerless Price I'd be alot happier.

Thanks for the help guys.

This weeks lineup against the league's top team (4-0 vs 0-4)
QB Gannon, Rich WR Price, Peerless WR Burleson, Nate
RB Holmes, Priest RB Barlow, Kevan TE Kinney, Erron
WR/RB Shaw, Bobby K Vanderjagt, DEF Carolina

Bench Branch, Deion (WR-NE) Blake, Jeff (QB-Ari) Chrebet, Wayne (WR-NYJ) Frerotte, Gus (QB-Min) Scobey, Josh (RB-Ari)
San Francisco (DEF-SF)

I have two questions: How many teams are in this league, and what kind of WR's or RB's are out there on the wire? Carolina has had their bye already, you won't need SF's D anymore. That Scobey guy is probably expendable, he can't be any higher than third on the depth chart in Arizona behind Emmitt Smith and Marcel Shipp. I'd say you've got the best lineup possible going. You can't sit Gannon save for a bye or injury. He gives you the best chance of winning no matter what.

I might sit Peerless Price for Deion Branch this week. Price may miss the game with little injuries, plus he's got nobody to throw to him. I know this since I have Price and am sitting him this week in favor of Andre Davis. How the mighty have fallen.

Speaking of problem players on Atlanta, I have Warrick "Cat Fancy" Dunn and have been unable to unload him for even a used bag of practice balls - I have finally decided to hold on to him until Mike Vick comes back then he will have a QB who can utilize him and he will become a valuable fantasy asset again - I think the same will be true for Price

There's 14 teams. Highest ranked WRs out there are Jerome Pathon and Darnerian Mccants. RB's Rock Cartwright(2 TDs) and Aveion Cason, Ricky Williams. I picked up Scobey because return yards count and I didn't have a 3rd RB. I'm thinking of sitting Gannon for Frerotte this week.
One of the guys came back with Culpepper, Garrison Hearst and Keyshawn Johnson for Holmes.

Yeah I dumped Warrick Dunn this week and picked up Anthony Thomas who had a pretty good game against Green Bay.His one touchdown Monday would have pushed me to victory ,but T.J. Duckett got more playing time than "cat fancy" and had a hundred yards.I agree when Vick plays they utalize Dunn out of the backfield better with Vicks scrambling.Hopefully Thomas plays healthy this week because I have Edggerin James hobbling in my backfield too.

You'll be fine with Gannon. He'll pick it up this season, and especially this week, so I wouldn't sit him against the Bears. Edge is going to play, so Williams' value is going to be negated, and I don't like the matchup against Tampa for RW anyway. Pathon may be worth a long look, Horn is hurting and he's had some success in the past, although the matchup is rough against Carolina. If return yards count, then Scobey should do OK, hopefully the points per yards are worth your while to start one.

Points per yard for returns are the same as the passing yards, 1 point for 30 yards. The way my team has been going he should be worth it as a fill in for some weeks.
