According to ESPN (click here for the article), the Cleveland Browns have traded WR Braylon Edwards to the New York Jets for Jason Trusnik (a special teams player), WR Chansi Stuckey and a pair of draft picks.
Edwards value can’t get any lower then it has been in Cleveland, where he has struggled over the first four weeks, catching just 10 passes for 139 yards and 0 TD. His presence, however, will likely impact the value of Jerricho Cotchery, who is likely to see the ball less then he had been over the first few weeks. Let’s be honest, the Jets didn’t acquire Edwards to be a decoy. He’s going to have the ball thrown his way more than Stuckey had been.
In Cleveland, Stuckey figures to be in the receiver mix with Mohamad Massaquoi, who emerged last week as a potential go to target for newly annointed starter Derek Anderson. Stuckey had potential value in deeper leagues prior to the trade, so that remains unchanged. Massaquoi, meanwhile, could now emerge as the main receiver in Cleveland, meaning that he should be owned in all formats.
