Fantasy football: Trade Shonn Greene now

Cash in: After a 161 yard, three touchdown day for New York Jets running back Shonn Greene, it’s time to sell-high on him. Sure, there were signs of the Iowa product regaining form, but given his track record, don’t read too much into the performance. The Colts were already struggling against the run, and after this performance, they are now the 29th ranked rush defense. Need more reason to sell him while you can? Greene’s next three games are against the Patriots, Dolphins and Seahawks. Each of those teams allow no more than an average of 82.7 rushing yards per game, and none have allowed more that three rushing scores in six games. Sell him now, and sell him fast!

Double trouble: In his Week 7 waiver wire analysis, fantasy guru Michael Fabiano advises to pick up Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ wideout Mike Williams. Fabiano notes that “Williams has been a nice option for owners in recent weeks. In fact, he’s posted 100-plus yards in two straight games and has scored a touchdown in three of his five contests.” The Syracuse product has benefited from the presence of Vincent Jackson, who is drawing the focus of opposing secondaries this season. Even with that being the case, both receivers have been thriving as of late. Each has scored no less than 11 fantasy points their last two games. Things should continue considering the Bucs’ next three games against the Saints, Vikings and Raiders all have secondaries which have allowed no less than seven passing touchdowns, while intercepting no more than three passes this season.

Go Wes young man: For owners who were scared about New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker’s production with the return of Aaron Hernandez, those fears were put to rest on Sunday. Welker led all receivers with ten catches, amassing 138 yards and a score in their matchup against the Seahawks. With defenses focused on the beast that is Rob Gronkowski, Hernandez has become Tom Brady’s favorite red-zone target. In his two games played this year, the Florida product has scored more fantasy points than Gronk, but it’s Welker who Brady turns to when they need to move the chains. Especially against tough defenses, their “dink and dunk” attack makes Welker a top option in standard and PPR leagues. As Michael Fabiano noted in the Week 6 fantasy recaps analysis, “He’s locked and loaded as a No. 1 option.”
