FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 10

In a fantasy football league, the most valuable asset is the team owner’s ability to know when to buy players who are on the cusp of breaking out and knowing when to cut loose a player who is about to go into decline. Much like the real-world stock market, making the wrong decisions sometimes can lead to cataclysmic consequences. If you are in a league where you can unload or load up on some of these players, do so!

QUARTERBACK

BUY LOW

Carson Wentz, Philadelphia (Owned in 70 percent of leagues)

I do have to admit that Wentz didn’t look stellar in the win against Dallas in Week 8, but after coming back after the bye, I am actually a little higher on him due to the remaining schedule. He is a guy who could captain your team through the fantasy playoffs. Wentz has the New York Giants, Cleveland and Seattle, who have all atrocious passing defenses and he ALSO has Green Bay and New Orleans, which will force the Eagles into garbage time and have to throw a lot. Buy him now before he starts racking up the points.

SELL HIGH

Teddy Bridgewater, Carolina (Owned in 37 percent of leagues)

Bridgewater has now turned in three double-digit fantasy point games in a row and if there was ever a time to move him, it’s now. Usually Bridgewater is pretty inconsistent, so it makes it very hard to trust him, and he’s about to go up against the Tampa Bay defense, who yes I know got beat very bad by Drew Brees, but are usually a tough passing defense, so I expect it to get back on script this week against Carolina. Trade Bridgewater while he’s on the upswing.

RUNNING BACK

BUY LOW

Duke Johnson, Houston (Owned in 17 percent of leagues)

With David Johnson suffering a concussion in Week 9, Duke Johnson stepped in and turned in a pretty great performance. I am not sure if David Johnson is going to clear the concussion protocol before their next game, but with how low you could probably trade (or get off waivers) Duke Johnson for, he’s very worth it. Cleveland has had a lot of trouble with its rushing defense this year and if Myles Garrett is out this week, it could be even worse. I definitely want a Houston running back this week and Duke Johnson is the easy one to buy.

SELL HIGH

Zack Moss, Buffalo (Owned in 67 percent of leagues)

Moss seems to have overtaken Devin Singletary as the lead back on the team, but I am not so sure. Moss put a good performance in last week and while I wouldn’t be unhappy with not trading him, I would love to cash that in for a little extra value because I think Singletary will bounce back and even if he doesn’t, Josh Allen LOVES to rush in touchdowns himself, which is awful for running back values. Trade him before Buffalo is turned into a full blown committee.
