One quarter of the NFL season is officially in the books and we are back with the 2023 Dynasty Football Week 5 Buy Low-Sell High article!
While most NFL teams may have their rosters set, your Fantasy Football teams may still need tinkering. There are some players worth taking a flier on this season. Some could end up being league winners. Others are simply worth stashing until better opportunities come along.
By that same token, certain skill players should be sold while they maintain value. This article will look at a couple of names on each side of the coin, and tell you to either buy low or sell high!

Buy Low Candidates
Joe Burrow, QB, Cincinnati Bengals

The supposedly vaunted Bengals offense has struggled significantly over the first four weeks. You can chalk that up to the struggles of star QB Joe Burrow. He may still be dealing with the aftereffects of the calf injury he suffered before the season. Whatever the case, his problems have led some of his fantasy owners to sour on him.
This is the time to buy low on a QB who has previously shown himself to be a top-five player at his position. If you can get him at a first plus a replacement QB you should pounce immediately. Burrow can only go up from here, and he has the talent and weapons to do so.
Aaron Jones, RB, Green Bay Packers
Jones had been on the shelf since Week One with a hamstring strain before returning last Thursday. He turned in a disappointing fantasy performance, but this is the outlier rather than the norm. The Packers fell behind early and were consistently playing catch up, leaving little opportunity for the run game.
Head coach Matt LaFleaur also stated that Jones was on a snap count to ensure he didn't reaggravate his hamstring. The Packers have extra time off since they play on Monday night in Week Five, giving Jones more time to fully recover. Buy in, and he can give you multiple RB1 performances down the road.
Zack Moss, RB, Indianapolis Colts
— Matt Waldman (@MattWaldman) October 2, 2023
Moss has been proving to be a more than adequate replacement for Jonathan Taylor, averaging over 17 fantasy PPG in PPR leagues since he became the starter. This may all be about to come to an end, as Taylor was activated off of PUP and returning to practice. Taylor probably won't be ready to go right away though.
Moss should get another start at a minimum, and you can sell your league mates on this fact. Moss can get back a flex-level player who will help out your team for the rest of the season.
Justin Fields, QB, Chicago Bears
Fields had a field day against a poor Broncos defense, which as a Fields believer and owner made me happy. However, reality does set in. Fields only had four rushing attempts that game. When he faces a better defense (AKA anyone besides Denver) he will struggle.
If Luke Getsy and Matt Eberflus don't scheme up more rushing plays for Fields, it's going to be a long season. Capitalize on what could be a rare Fields QB1 performance, and see about moving him for an upper tier QB (Burrow perhaps).
