The waiver wire is a blast every week but nothing feels the same as pulling off a trade! Finding the right compensation can be tough and coming to an agreement is even harder. While we would all love to trade for Justin Jefferson, these articles are based around players that with the right compensation, are attainable. Each week throughout the season, I'll give you three buy and sell candidates.
Tee Higgins, WR
Tee has scored under 4 points in all but one game this season in what has been a total disaster of a season for him. That said he has had three games of 8 or more targets and can’t statistically be this bad for the rest of the season. His price should be very low and on a bye week, there is no better time to capitalize on a high upside player that an owner can’t move off of quick enough.
Saquon Barkley, RB
In Barkley's first game back he had nearly 30 touches! The Giants have been garbage this season and with Saquon’s injury history, owners could be looking to get out early. I would take the risk on Barkley. He is going to be the entire Giants offense and as long as he is healthy, you will start him every week regardless of match up.
T.J. Hockenson, WR
Hockensons numbers look a little meh but he is as consistent as they come and sometimes you need that on your team. With Jefferson out, Hockenson can see some more looks as there will be plenty of targets to go around. He has had over 8 targets in all but one game this season. Hockenson is that player that will bring consistency to your team at one of the most volatile positions.
Joe Mixon, RB
The appeal of Mixon was him being the red zone back and the Bengals frequently being in the red zone. That has not been the case this season. He’s received over 20 touches just twice and has only scored one TD this season. He has also not had a single game with 100 yards. Mixon is a low floor RB 2 scoring around 10 points a game. I would sell him to a team with a desperate RB need to upgrade my receiving core while he still has name value and is healthy.
Marquise Brown, WR
Brown has seen double digit targets in all but two games this season. With that said, he’s only had over 60 yards three times and has yet to have a 100 yard game. The dude is made of glass and has hands of bricks. The Cardinals have been playing as well as they possibly can and we’re starting to see the wheels fall off. I’m selling Brown for whatever I can get.
Adam Thielen, WR
Thielen has been on an absolute tear and is one of the top receivers in fantasy this year. Chances are you drafted him late and he has paid off big time. I would capitalize on his early season success and look to move on from him if you have decent receivers and need help at the RB or TE positions. Thielen should continue to do well this year, but you can flip him to fill out your team's needs. He’s an older receiver so the sooner you can sell high the better.
