Old faces in new places

As usual, there's been a good deal of player movement during the offseason. If you haven't been paying close attention, you may have missed some. Here's a quick rundown on the important moves from a fantasy perspective, broken down in three rough categories: Thumbs Up (good move for the player's fantasy stock), Thumbs Down (bad move for his stock), and Push (little or no affect). More detailed analysis on these moves will come in August.

Thumbs Up:

Laveranues Coles, WR -- Jets to Bengals
Joey Galloway, WR -- Bucs to Pats
Kyle Orton, QB -- Bears to Broncos
Derrick Ward, RB -- Giants to Bucs
Nate Washington, WR -- Steelers to Titans

Thumbs Down:

Matt Cassel, QB -- Pats to Chiefs
Jay Cutler, QB -- Broncos to Bears
Terrell Owens, WR -- Cowboys to Bills
LJ Smith, TE -- Eagles to Ravens


Correll Buckhalter, RB -- Eagles to Broncos
Bobby Engram, WR -- Seahawks to Chiefs
Tony Gonzalez, TE -- Chiefs to Falcons
Torry Holt, WR -- Rams to Jags
TJ Houshmandzadeh, WR -- Bengals to Seahawks
Fred Taylor, RB -- Jags to Pats
Kellen Winslow, TE -- Browns to Bucs

And then there are a few players in limbo, who may or may not land with a bang (or thud) somewhere, including:

Plaxico Burress
Brett Favre
Ahman Green
Marvin Harrison
Edgerrin James
Matt Jones
Deuce McAllister
