Welcome to our 2023 Fantasy Football Week 2 Trade Targets article! Week 1 has officially passed, and it's time to sit back and analyze what worked for our teams and what didn't.
Reminder to everybody, whether you're 1-0 or 0-1: the season just began plenty of things can change. So don't get comfy, and do not panic.
Fantasy Football is a 17-week game, and you must always be managing your teams. Managing isn't limited to only trades but also includes waiver wires, keeping up with football news, and watching your leagues movements.
So let's get this started I'll cover buy-low, buy-high, and a sell high target. In the future, there will be more options along with a sell-low. But, of course, it's still early in the season, and anything can change. I will not be covering players who aren't rostered at least 80% as that leans more to a waiver play.

Pittsburgh Steelers Skill Positions
The pre-season darlings Pittsburgh Steelers got brought back down to Earth on Sunday, and they looked terrible the entire game. They were shut out offensively and defensively all game long. All signs are going to point to avoiding this entire roster. But that's a concise way of looking at fantasy football and is the thinking where you kick yourself for not taking advantage of it.
Firstly, this is Week One. NFL teams are gonna be bad. It happens every year, and players are going to underperform. Examples of Week 1 blunders in 2022 that blew up are Devonta Smith, Tee Higgins, Amari Cooper, Ceedee Lamb, and DK Metcalf.
Secondly, the San Francisco 49ers were the number-one ranked defense coming into the season, and it is no surprise that they performed at that level. Causing the Steelers to be the ones that pay the price.
Don't overthink it; I would be targeting
Diontae Johnson (injury update - out a few weeks!), George Pickens, Najee Harris, and Jaylen Warren and capitalizing on panicking managers. Reminder: trades don't always have to be with the intention of immediate usage. At worst, these players are solid future depth players.
