Take a look at this week’s Barometer. I wrote it yesterday morning, so some of the more recent injury situations weren’t covered. I’m higher on Roddy White than most – he’s a must-add in my book.

    Nobody is a “must ad” when being thrown the football by Joey the Duck Harrington, but I guess Roddy warrants some attention. I grabbed Watson and Stecker, who don’t exactly thrill me, especially since I had to drop Wynn and Leon Washington to get them, but I need guys that I might be able to play in the next couple weeks.

    With Romo and Vince Young in tow, I think it’s time to see if I can move Vince for a buy-low type RB. Any recommendations?

    Ya that’s a good idea to shop one of those QBs. But Young is going to be even more valuable in a few weeks, I’d imagine. Could you get Portis for him? Marion Barber? I’m racking my brain, and there’s either backs I wouldn’t trade Young for, or some elite guys who have disappointed whose owners probably wouldn’t trade away yet – S-Jax, R. Johnson, Bush…It’d take a leap of faith, but I still believe in MJD.

    As for Roddy White, I hear ya, Joey Harrington sucks. But I think that’s a common misconception that an elite WR can’t play with a poor QB. It hurts, no doubt, but Petrino’s passing attack is typically very productive, and White is entering the magical third year and was a former first round draft choice. He’s getting targeted like a true No. 1 as well, and I’ve read some pretty good puff pieces regarding his newfound work ethic, etc. I’m actually pretty high on him – I absolutely blew my FAAB load on him in my main league.

  3. At what point is chris henry worth picking up. he’s out thru week 8 right? i just don’t want to miss out on him, he could put up some serious points, especially if something happened to johnson or TJ.

    Just depends on how deep your league is. I actually think he’s worth holding on to right now, if you can afford the roster spot. He’s such a good red zone target – and that defense is awful. Like you said, if one of the top-2 guys goes down, Henry has top-15 WR potential. Even if they don’t, he’s top-30ish. He’s prone to goose eggs being the third option and all, but there’s real solid TD upside. He needs to stay out of jail, however.

    Now, I hope he comes through – for both of our sakes.
