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.
Breece Hall, RB
I just bought Hall myself and it cost me Mark Andrews. I think he is worth an elite piece if you’re desperate at RB. He doesn’t face another elite defense until the final week of the fantasy season where he faces Cleveland. New York can’t pass the ball and the coaching staff has cleared him to be a full go. Hall could finish as the RB 1 from this point to the end of the season.
Rashee Rice, WR
Rice should still be fairly easy to get as he hasn’t exploded yet, but it’s coming. Rice has clearly looked like the best receiver on the Chiefs and last week he finally led the Chiefs receiving core in most snaps played. He also led the receiving core in targets last week. He leads the core in TDs and receptions on the season. Mahomes is starting to trust him so you’re running out of time to acquire him.
Chris Olave, WR
Olave has been a major disappointment this season and his 1 TD is uninspiring. However, looking ahead, I don’t see any negative matchups for him going forward. He has seen 9 or more targets in 6/8 games this season which is an elite target share. I’m buying him where I can and taking the chance on him bouncing back and turning a 35 yard catch into a 70 yard TD. He plays for the Saints.
Kenneth Walker, RB
Walker has been good and I’m not putting him here after a down game because of his performance. Walker has a horrendous schedule going forward. He plays Baltimore, San Fran twice, Dallas, Philly, Tennessee, and Pittsburgh. *Gulp* I’m getting out while I’m ahead.
Josh Jacobs, RB
The Raiders fired their coach, benched their QB, and failed to lock up Jacobs long term before things went south. Jacobs and Adams both want out ASAP and now that the trade deadline is over, don’t be shocked if a minor injury turns into a multi-week absence as they look to stay healthy for free agency. Jacobs has been bad because the Raiders have been bad. The Raiders are worse now. GET OUT!
Devonta Smith, WR
I’ve been pounding the Smith drum all season because of his elite snap share but he hasn’t been able to parlay it into much fantasy success. Now he faces the Cowboys, has a Bye, KC, Buf, SF, and Dallas again. That is a brutal stretch. It eases up in the playoffs but he isn’t going to help you get there by any means.
