The Trading Post - Week 2

Player A:
Traded away Jeremy Hill
Dropped Brandon Coleman

Player B:
Traded away CJ Anderson
Traded away Joseph Randle

Braxton's Take:
Jeremy Hill started off with a solid week one posting up 19 rushing attempts for 63 yards and two touchdowns against the Raiders. Was this the sell high point? I think not. Jeremy Hill will continue to post up games with multiple touchdowns and improve on his yards per carry. But, in this trade, CJ Anderson and Joseph Randle both have the opportunity to finish as top 20 running backs this season. CJA hasn't performed up to the heightened expectations many projected during the preseason, but remember that Denver's depleted O-line competes against the stout running defense of the Baltimore Ravens and the Kansas City Chiefs. Both of these defenses rank in the top 1/3 against the run. Following week 2, CJA should find more fantasy production against the Lions, Vikings, Raiders, and Browns during the next four weeks. Randle averaged 4.1 yards per carry and added another 42 receiving yards on three receptions during week one. Although the Cowboy's backfield is mixing up a committee, Randle started over McFadden and only lost some passing down work to Lance Dunbar. In a deep league with multiple slots to start running backs, both CJA and Randle should be started every week. Overall, this is a great trade for the new CJ Anderson and Joseph Randle owner, unless Anderson loses the starting job to Ronnie Hillman.


Player C:
Traded away Brandon Marshall
Traded away Jason Witten

Player D:
Traded away Dez Bryant
Traded away Chris Ivory

Brenndan's Take: If Dez Bryant comes back in time for fantasy playoffs, it'll make for an interesting playoff push. That is, of course, if Player C makes the playoffs. So far he's off to a 2-0 start. This trade would be much more difficult if it the team getting Dez started off with a record of 0-2. Dez will ride the pine for half the season. Brandon Marshall is currently a top 10 wide receiver and Witten is top 5 at tight end. If the Ivy Leaguer can keep pumping the ball down the field and the Brown's 22nd overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft (Where's Matt Cassel?) stays in the game, Player D may come out on top.
