So you drafted Randy Moss, now what? (Randy Moss Trade Options)

Posted by in Fantasy Football on September 25th, 2008 | Comment »

We get it by now. You drafted Randy Moss and in the last two weeks (in the post-Brady era), your hopes of winning the season have gone down the tubes and you’re hoping that you could trade him for any WR that is in the “WR2 category.” In my league, I’d be lucky if I could trade Randy Moss for Roddy White or DeSean Jackson. I had the #7 pick and naturally, after the top 5 backs are off the board, you have to go Randy Moss, right? Well, I was stuck in that position and now I’m pissed I passed on Marion Barber. So, I try to package Kurt Warner to go to the guy who needs QB help (he has Derek Anderson and Matt Cassel) with Randy Moss and I throw in Edgerrin for Marshawn and Cotchery and it was immediately denied. People are avoiding Randy Moss like the plague. His 1,500+ 20+ TD plus season last year means nothing. This year, people think he would be lucky if he ended up with 600 yards and 4 TDs. Right now, Randy Moss’s value is about as high as Brandon Lloyd’s or Robert Meachem’s.

I’ve been scrambling to trade Randy Moss and and I’ve been offered Jericho Cotchery, but I still don’t want to make the move. Cotchery will get you a consistent 6-8 points a week, but I still haven’t given up on Randy just yet, and I’ll tell you why.

There’s no need to push the panic button just yet. Go out and grab Brandon Lloyd or Antonio Bryant off your waiver wire as a 3rd receiver and just wait until weeks 5-7 for Randy Moss. The Pats upcoming schedule is against teams are playing extremely poor against the pass. They have the 49ers, Chargers, Broncos, and Rams. Those teams are 7th, 31st, 32nd, and 30th against the pass, respectively.

Bill Bellichick got the bye week at the perfect time. With 2 weeks to prepare for the upcoming stretch, the Patriots might be able to get a little something going. I’m hoping that Cassel and Moss could build up some chemistry. The Pats will come up with ways to get Randy Moss involved in the offense. Sure, Matt Cassel blows, Randy Moss has a poor attitude, and he’ll always be double teamed, so you’ll take anyone over Moss at this point. I’m just saying, don’t pull the trigger on Moss when his value is at an all time low. Unless you get outstanding value, don’t go for a WR taken in the 7th round that’s off to a hot start.

If you were able to deal Randy Moss for anything decent, let me know.
