Ask the Expert Question: Pick one player who's been great thus far that you believe it's a great time to sell high on -- somebody who won't be as good the rest of the season, and say why.



Pick one player who's been great thus far that you believe it's a great time to sell high on -- somebody who won't be as good the rest of the season, and say why.


Kareem Hunt. He looked a little less "Superman" on Sunday Night and has the rookie wall to contend with along with two offensive linemen out. I say sell High-very high. He also seems to start slow and really explode in the second half of games when defenses are tired and run-down. He may not see that as much in the next few weeks. Well he does face PIT this week so perhaps the time to sell will be after a big game versus the Steelers this week.

Ask the Expert Question: Several first- and second-year quarterbacks have started the season off strong. Of these young passers, which one do you believe will go on to have the best NFL career?

Several first- and second-year quarterbacks have started the season off strong. Of these young passers, which one do you believe will go on to have the best NFL career?

DeShaun Watson has my eye. He has stepped in as the starter quite admirably and has some great receivers in DeAndre Hopkins and a returning Will Fuller. His rushing makes him lethal in every game and the Texans defense will bail him out on occasion. If/when in the future the Texans get a decent RB the sky is the limit.

Ask the Expert Question: Pick one slow starter that you believe will turn things around the rest of the way, and say why.



Pick one slow starter that you believe will turn things around the rest of the way, and say why.

Cam Newton. No one can say he is not starting slow this year with just 189 yards per game average along with .5 TDs and 1.33 INTs. Ouch! Why do I think he will turn things around after losing Greg Olsen and possibly Kelvin Benjamin for some time? Because Newton has not fully recovered from his shoulder injury and...stop this is madness. I did not draft him this year because I was afraid this would happen. So no I am not going to say he will bounce back. Instead I will defend someone I drafted a ton. Isaiah Crowell. There I said it. I liked Crowell to have a big year and despite a dismal start I still believe in him. Why? One, he is talking to the coach about more work so that is encouraging. Second, the OL has to gel sometime this year and that could mean more holes to run through. OK who am I kidding...it might mean a hole to run through as the Browns have not had any in 3 games. Finally, DeShone Kizer may get a fire burning under the Browns and inspire more from everyone including Crowell.

Ask the Expert Question: Two weeks into the season and the injuries are piling up. Pick one of your favorite backups who a Week 2 injury has put in line for a major role, and say why you like him.

Two weeks into the season and the injuries are piling up. Pick one of your favorite backups who a Week 2 injury has put in line for a major role, and say why you like him.

Corey Coleman is out for at least 8 weeks with a broken hand. Rashard Higgins stepped in during the week 2 matchup and caught seven balls for just under 100 yards (topping his season totals from 15 games last year!). He has rocketed from practice squad to the Browns #1 WR at the moment based on his good chemistry with whomever is at their helm. If you need some waiver wire help at WR or Flex pick him up.
