Buy Low Targets

Clyde Edwards-Helaire RB, Kansas City Chiefs

Clyde Edwards-Helaire came into the season with a ton of hype after being drafted in the early first round. Edwards-Helaire has been underperforming overall this season. He is averaging just 11.5 points per game over his last four games. He hasn’t been living up to his draft capital, especially if you compare him to other first-round running backs such as Ezekiel Elliot, Alvin Kamara, Dalvin Cook, or the combination of Christian McCaffrey and Mike Davis.

Don’t let the overall low production fool you, though; Edwards-Helaire is capable of putting fantasy points on the board. We need to temper our expectations back a bit. Edwards-Helaire has been averaging 20 touches per game with an average of six touches being pass targets. Andy Reid is trying to get him involved in the game and the overall yardage hasn’t been terrible.

Currently, he is RB12 on the year. If you have the capital to pry away Edwards-Helaire from another owner, this is the week to do it. Keep your expectations at an RB2 with upside, and you won’t be disappointed with Edwards-Helaire.

David Johnson, RB, Houston Texans

David Johnson was one of my underrated running backs coming into the season. I still believe that Johnson is going to surprise us this year with 1,300 yards from scrimmage. With the Texans coaching staff officially changed and them getting their first win of the year, we might start seeing Johnson being used to his full potential.

Johnson is currently averaging 11 points per game and is receiving 18+ touches a week. Although Johnson is a bit touchdown reliant, he has the versatility and is playing ahead of his backups. This is giving him the steady floor to be a three-down back every week. Target Johnson as a low-end RB2/flex-play. With positional scarcity, expect Johnson to be a bit pricier than you wish, but the depth will help win your league.

Dallas Cowboys Pass Catchers

With a severe injury to Dak Prescott‘s ankle, this will cause a ripple for all fantasy-relevant players on the Dallas Cowboys. Before, people start to panic and write-off Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, Ceedee Lamb, and Dalton Schultz. Just know that this is the best group of weapons Andy Dalton has ever played with, and Dalton is basically on a prove-it deal also.

Dalton is a capable quarterback, playing with the best offense he has ever had. Dalton’s best fantasy year was 2015 when he was on pace to be a possible Pro-Bowler that year. He threw for 3,250 yards and 25 touchdowns in thirteen games which were on pace for a career year. AJ Green finished with 1,297 yards and ten touchdowns, Marvin Jones had 816 yards and four touchdowns, and Tyler Eifert had 615 yards and thirteen touchdowns.

Dalton can keep the Cowboy’s receiving options respectable. If you are currently the owner of Cowboy’s receivers, do not panic sell your players. They will take a step back in production, but at least two players will remain fantasy-relevant. If your league has a panic seller, pay for those players. I would start with Amari Cooper first, then Ceedee Lamb, and finally, Michael Gallup.

Buy High Targets

Jamison Crowder, WR, New York Jets

My favorite underrated pick coming into the season, Jamison Crowder, is the only player on the New York Jets that is currently fantasy relevant. Since he is a bit injury prone, he has only played in the three games this season. However, in all three games, Crowder has averaged seven receptions and 100+ yards. The Jets will continually play from behind, and Crowder is the best weapon on the team, don’t let the unappealing team turn you off from fantasy gold.

The fact that Crowder isn’t rostered 100% across all leagues is a bit baffling, but that means people still don’t see him as a fantasy-relevant player. In the last three games, Crowder’s starting percentage was under 50%, with the other two weeks being under 15%. Well, that’s excellent news for anybody potentially buying Crowder. Give the argument: “You aren’t even starting him.” Pay for Crowder at a high-end WR3 price and see if the owners bite.

Buyer beware though, Crowder is injury prone and has already missed two games this season. This is something to note before you purchase.

Robby Anderson, WR, Carolina Panthers

Robby Anderson is the #3 receiver on the year in receiving yards. Coming into the season, I would have never guessed that this was a possibility, but that is the beauty of football. There is a surprise every year, and Anderson is possibly one of the biggest ones. Anderson has gone for 100 yards or more in four out of five games. At some point, we have to admit that this isn’t a fluke, and Anderson is the real deal. Anderson is the WR1 for the Carolina Panthers, and in fantasy, he should be considered a WR1 from here on out.

Buyer beware, Anderson only has one touchdown on the year and with competition for touchdowns in DJ Moore and the Panthers running backs, I don’t believe we will see a double-digit touchdown season from Anderson. Overall he has a concrete floor in targets and has shown great chemistry with Teddy Bridgewater, so this is a must buy. 

Sell High Players

Mike Evans, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Mike Evans’s second appearance on my sell high segment, everything I said in my previous article three weeks ago, still applies today. I believe Evans is a great player, and when we have a Fantasy Football Hall of Fame, Evans will most likely be a first-ballot entry. That being said, Evans is a touchdown-dependent wide receiver. He is the go-to guy for the end zone, which will keep Evans Fantasy relevant, but that dependency isn’t a WR1 to WR2 value in my book.

With the return of Chris Godwin, we are going to see Evans get fewer targets. Evans is currently on pace to finish the season under 900 yards but with double-digit touchdowns. I will let you decide if this is a WR1 in your book; it’s a sell-high to me. I would also add that Evans has been battling an ankle injury in the last few weeks. At some point, this will take a toll on Evans’s production.

Julio Jones, WR, Atlanta Falcons

I hate to put Julio Jones in this segment, but it’s well deserved due to how poorly Jones has done this season. He is someone I would believe is still a sell high. The same reason you bought Jones is the same reason someone is going to buy him: he’s a big-name wide receiver that has been smoking teams for the last nine years. I don’t believe Jones will return what you paid this year, but there is someone out there who will bite on the name. With a lingering hamstring injury, bad play from Matt Ryan, and Calvin Ridley is stealing the spotlight, it’s time to cut out the weekly headache and move on.
