Fantasy Football Trade Advice

Players to Buy

Joe Mixon (RB – CIN)

Time to buy low on Joe Mixon. He only had 8 carries in this game, his lowest output of the season. Just 13 touches overall. Still a 76% opportunity share. Even though the fact that this massive Bengals victory came at the expense of Mixon’s volume, I don’t think that spells doom The team shifted to more shotgun and that led to a high-octane passing attack. But Mixon’s efficiency on the ground increased – 5.6 yards per attempt the last two weeks – while he maintained a role in the passing game (4 targets per game).

And quarterback Joe Burrow himself said that the team found its identity in their road win, which foreshadows a more efficient Mixon ROS. If you can get someone who is only concerned about Mixon’s carry total, I’d be a buyer. A solid schedule is approaching – Atlanta, Cleveland and Carolina.

Alvin Kamara (RB – NO)

Alvin Kamara posted 99 rushing yards on 19 carries with six catches on 9 targets with 25 yards to boot. But no scores for AK41. However, he was targeted 4 times in the red zone. With his usage super encouraging over the last two weeks, it’s just a matter of time till Kamara pops off a multi-TD game. Buy.

Amon-Ra St. Brown (WR – DET)

Amon-Ra St. Brown was on a pitch count (32% snap share) which resulted in just four catches for 18 yards in 6 targets in Week 5. Josh Reynolds took advantage, commanding 10 targets, six catches and 92 receiving yards while playing all the snaps. But it shouldn’t be ignored that when ASB was running routes, Jared Goff was peppering his No. 1 wideout. 38% target rate per route run, 6% percentage points higher than his target rate entering Week 5 (32%). Buy him while he’s coming off the bye week. He’ll be healthy and help you toward your playoff run.

Chris Godwin (WR – TB)

Chris Godwin led the Buccaneers in targets (12, 32% target share) going for 95 yards. It was definitely encouraging to see his snap share rise (89%) and route participation (93%) rise after he basically sat out the second half of Week 5. Mike Evans with just 4-42 on 4 targets. He was targeted on just 10% of his routes. It’s a reminder that Evans isn’t a target hog like Godwin, and thrives off TDs scores for his fantasy production.

Tee Higgins (WR – CIN)

Tee Higgins saw 10 targets in Week 6 (6-for-47) despite being limited all week with an ankle injury. The results were not great, but his 90% route participation indicates he is healthy. Buy.

Drake London (WR – ATL)

Drake London managers are no doubt frustrated but you need to separate the player from the situation. If the Falcons have their way against a beatable run defense, London won’t be used. But if they have to throw, he is going to feast. He ran a route on 100% of dropbacks in Week 6 and owns a 33% target share this season. As 6-point road dogs versus the Bengals in Week 7, London could be squarely in for a major bounce-back effort. Buy low.

Travis Etienne Jr. (RB – JAC)

Travis Etienne Jr. (10 for 86) and James Robinson (12 for 54) split carries, but ETN was more efficient, saw more targets (2 vs 1), played more snaps and ran more routes. As the second-year back continues to see more playing time and look explosive with the ball in his hands, the breakout game is impending. Buy low now while you still can. He is currently PFF’s 5th-highest graded rusher this season.

Lamar Jackson (QB – BAL)

Lamar Jackson posted his 3rd straight poor game passing (almost all without Rashod Bateman, still had 7-77-0 rushing). I’d buy low with Bateman making his potential return vs a Browns defense that just got shredded by Bailey Zappe.

Devin Singletary (RB – BUF)

Devin Singletary is the league’s most underrated bellcow. 17 carries for 85 yards and four catches for 22 yards on 5 targets. 86% snap share and 67% route participation. Zack Moss was inactive and James Cook had 2 carries. Buy him.

Curtis Samuel (WR – WAS)

Terry McLaurin finished with just 3 catches for 41 yards on 4 targets in Week 6, trailing Curtis Samuel (again) who led the team with 5 targets (22% target share). It was an overall disappointing effort from Washington’s passing attack as Carson Wentz attempted just 22 passes and threw for only 99 passing yards. Samuel is a buy-low after a poor game because it should have been much better. He dropped a long TD and was targeted twice in the red zone. Taylor Heinicke is also expected to take over for an injured Carson Wentz, and his lack of deep ball accuracy plays in the strengths of Samuel as a low-aDOT receiver.

Romeo Doubs (WR – GB)

Allen Lazard (4-76-1, 9 targets) and Romeo Doubs (4-21-0, 9 targets) were heavily involved after Randall Cobb was carted off the field with an ankle injury. Both Lazard and Doubs ran a route on 96% of dropbacks, but the former continues to be the favorite in the red zone. Lazard also saw 162 air yards to Doubs’ 113 air yards. However Doubs is a buy-low based on his usage and matchup in Week 7. Washington Commanders. WRs that saw multiple deep targets in Week 6 that failed to haul them include Ja’Marr Chase, Marquez Callaway, Tyler Lockett, Romeo Doubs and Devin Duvernay.

Rondale Moore (WR – ARI)

Rondale Moore commanded 10 targets (28% target share) in Week 6 for 6 catches and 49 yards, while running a route on 98% of Kyler Murray‘s dropbacks. His usage has been top notch and the production should continue with Marquise Brown potentially out on Thursday night. Also, I think Moore is still a buy candidate with the team trading for Robbie Anderson. Anderson won’t interfere with Moore’s role in the slot.

Michael Gallup (WR – DAL)

Players like Michael Gallup are the reason why air yards exist. The Cowboys WR posted a team-high 33% air yards share (nearly 100 air yards) share in Week 6, but he caught just two passes on 7 targets. With Prescott back and the Lions up next…Gallup is due to blow up. Trade for him on the cheap.

Players to Sell

Dalvin Cook (RB – MIN)

Just 13 carries for Dalvin Cook, who was a complete non-factor in the first half. 5 carries for 9 yards. But he ripped off a 53-yard TD run to save fantasy managers. Alexander Mattison had just one carry and zero targets. Worth mentioning Mattison was on the injury report this week, which probably influenced his 13% snap share and boosted Cook’s to 87%. Cook caught just one pass on one target. His receiving usage continues to leave fantasy managers wanting more. He had a 93% opportunity share in this game and didn’t have that much to show for it. Sell high.

Darrell Henderson (RB – LAR)

Darrell Henderson led the backfield with 12 carries for 43 yards, adding two catches for 9 yards in 3 targets. Also scored a rushing TD. But Malcolm Brown was somewhat also involved in earning 7 carries for 15 yards (1 catch for 13 yards). Henderson didn’t play every snap (71%), so the role wasn’t as good as it was in Week 1. With the Rams a candidate to make a move at RB in lieu of the Cam Akers situation, I’d sell high on Hendo to someone that thinks he will be the RB1 rest of the season. Not to mention, after the bye week, the Rams face the 49ers and Buccaneers top-tier run defenses.

Ezekiel Elliott (RB – DAL)

The ground game for Dallas was ALIVE in Week 6. Ezekiel Elliott carried the rock 13 carries for 81 yards and 1 TD (one target). The yardage is nice, but the lack of receiving continues to be a major problem. As is Tony Pollard, who totaled 13 touches (11 carries, 2 receptions) – which was good for a 50% opportunity share split with Zeke. Sell high after the prime time showing with Dak Prescott making his return. That optimism should create trade suitors for Elliott.

JuJu Smith-Schuster (WR – KC)

Despite seeing just 5 targets (14% target share, 11% target rate per route run), JuJu Smith-Schuster posted 113 receiving yards and one TD – long catch-and-run – on 5 catches. Sell high. JuJu has just an 18% target share on the season.

Brandon Aiyuk (WR – SF)

Brandon Aiyuk, George Kittle and Deebo Samuel all saw 10-plus targets and at least 79 receiving yards on 41 of Jimmy G’s pass attempts in Week 6. Aiyuk was the most productive with 2 TDs, 83 yards and 8 receptions while running a route on 93% of dropbacks. But all that glitters is not 49ers gold. Garoppolo has attempted 40 passes as a 49er just 5 times prior to Week 6. This spike in passing volume is not the want the 49ers want to do on offense, so I’d be looking to sell high on Aiyuk. However, be aware that Aiyuk’s value could further increase ahead of a potential shootout versus the Kansas City Chiefs, so maybe wait one more week to trade him.

Raheem Mostert (RB – MIA)

No Myles Gaskin for Miami meant Raheem Mostert RB1 season continued on an 80% opportunity share. 14 carries for the older RB for 49 yards and zero TDs. He was targeted twice and had one catch because he ran a route on fewer than 50% of dropbacks. Chase Edmonds also had two targets, but just one carry. However, Mostert’s injury history precedes him. And he’s 30 years old. I’d cash out now.

Brandin Cooks (WR – HOU)

The gap is closing between Nico Collins and Brandin Cooks. Over the last month, Collins has more receiving yards than Cooks. Each saw 6 targets in Week 5. Sell high while Cooks maintains his perceived status as the clear-cut No. 1 WR in Houston.

Darnell Mooney (WR – CHI)

Slowly but surely, the Bears are throwing the ball more. Justin Fields hit a new season high in passing attempts against the Commanders (27) and peppered Darnell Mooney with 12 targets (46% target share). Mooney also saw 121 air yards. He did not finish as the Bears leading WR as No.2 wideout Dante Pettis converted his 7 targets into four catches and 84 receiving yards, plus a score. Still, I’d be looking to sell high on Mooney with tough matchups versus the Patriots and Dallas coming up. Not to mention, Fields is dealing with a shoulder injury.
