Welcome to our 2021 Fantasy Football Week 13 Trade Targets. Trade deadline edition!

A reminder to everybody trying to make trades - check upcoming schedules for matchups, weather/stadiums, and bye weeks!

I also recommend you read last week's article as it still pertains to this week.

So, with that out of the way, let's get this started and talk about 2021 Fantasy Football Week 13 Trade Targets.

This is the final week for most teams to trade. Therefore, I will list buyable targets as a whole and players I am looking to sell away.

Rest Of Season Trade Targets

D.J. Moore, WR, Carolina Panthers

D.J. Moore has been a rollercoaster ride all season, but he is currently WR13 in PPR formats. We know the QB play is terrible in Carolina, but the one thing that remains consistent for the team is that D.J. Moore will get his targets.

Not once this entire season has Moore gone under seven targets in a game. He is a significant part of the offense and will continue to be as long as he can take to the field. As you know, this won't guarantee you points, but this should instill confidence that Moore will always be involved.

The Panther's Fantasy playoff schedule is consistent with three rival division games and one matchup against the Buffalo Bills. Outside of the Bills, I believe Moore will be serviceable in the three other games. Additionally, the Carolina Panthers are currently on a bye week, which allows a buy-low opportunity for Moore.

Van Jefferson/Odell Beckham, WR, Los Angeles Rams

The Los Angeles Rams are a passing attack team. In the last four out of five games, they threw the ball 38 or more times. This would rank them as top five in the league as of recent weeks. The big beneficiaries of this are Van Jefferson Jr and Odell Beckham Jr.

Both receivers had 10 targets this past week to fill the void that Robert Woods has left. Although both receivers aren't particularly efficient, they are Fantasy-relevant on a week-to-week basis. To top it off, they might not cost you must to obtain either player. Consider both these players as boom/bust plays, but if you need depth and want possible season-winning players, these are two possible options.

Keenan Allen, WR, Los Angeles Chargers

Suppose there was a player I had to overpay for this season that I believe is nearly matchup proof. It's going to be Keenan Allen. Throughout the entire season, Allen has not gone under 10 points a game in PPR scoring formats. With only three of his games going under 15 points.

This means Allen has been Fantasy-relevant every week of the season and hasn't "disappointed" once, nor has he missed a single game. The only other wide receivers that have been as consistent are Cooper Kupp and Davante Adams. However, Adams did miss a game due to Covid-19 protocol.

The only issue with Allen this season is his lack of touchdowns, making him a must-buy in PPR formats. His upside will also be capped due to Austin Ekeler, Mike Williams and the TE position.

Antonio Gibson, RB, Washington Football Team

At this point in the season, every stud running back is a must-buy target. This isn't even factoring in the injuries that have plagued the league. Unfortunately, this means that there are slim pickings across the board.

Antonio Gibson is someone that is being completely overlooked and might not cost you all that much. He had two of his touchdowns go to J.D. McKissic. As a Gibson Manager, that feels terrible. The silver lining for this is that it's an arguing point about why the manager should or will sell Gibson to you.

Gibson's usage has gone up, averaging 20+ touches a game in the past three weeks. With this past game having him being targeted seven times and catching all seven of those targets. The arrow is pointing up, and if you're in dire straights for an affordable RB2. Gibson is your guy.

Players To Trade Away

Ja'Marr Chase, WR, Cincinnati Bengals

I wrote about Ja'Marr Chase last week, but I wanted to bring him up again because he is someone that should be traded away due to the lack of passing attempts from Joe Burrow and the team's reliance on Joe Mixon.

Aaron Jones, RB, Greenbay Packers

AJ Dillon has stepped up the past few weeks, and I don't believe that Dillon will carry the full bell-cow role. I also do not expect Jones to reprise his original position and usurp some of his touches to the younger player. The Packers know that Jones cannot handle a full workload and are likely to split the carries 60/40 for the rest of the season.

Let's compare this to Melvin Gordon/Javonte Williams or Ezekiel Elliott/Tony Pollard to put this in perspective. Sure there will be Fantasy relevancy for each player, but it's going to be capped out with either person in the tandem getting the touchdown upside. I believe the name of Jones can get you more than he will produce.

Trade him to get the players you need to win the season.

Damien Harris, RB, New England Patriots

The New England Patriots have gone full running back committee. With Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson splitting the rushing attack work and forfeiting the pass-catching role to Branden Bolden.

Ever since the concussion scare, the Patriots have kept all their running backs to limited roles. At this point, none of these players can be trusted going forward unless you're desperate. These guys will be boom or bust players till the end of the season.
