Buying or Selling Every Top 10 Team as Playoff Championship Contender
John Bazemore/Associated Press

After one week of the season, is it too early to buy and sell teams as contenders for the College Football Playoff?

A little bit yes, and a little bit no.

We don't know enough to make fixed, conclusive judgments, but we do know more than we did the entire summer. Each team in the national Top 10 has played and won a game, but not all wins are created equal—and neither are all schedules.

So why not make some impulse reactions? Here is a post-Week 1 judgement of the Top 10 squads, a verdict based on the skill of their roster, the way they looked last weekend and the road they face to make the CFP. The outlooks range from strong, moderate or reluctant "buy" to strong, moderate or reluctant "sell."

Also listed is the pre-Week 1 judgement, so you can see which direction they've moved after the first game.

Sound off below and let me know where you disagree.
