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!
FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 11
If you’re looking for a quarterback who is on an upwards trajectory in terms of fantasy points, look no further than Daniel Jones. Jones has had over 200-yards in each of his last three games and while he is still trying to improve his touchdown and interception numbers, once he gets back from his bye this week, it should get easier for him. Cincinnati, Seattle and Arizona are all in the bottom-half of passing defenses so if Jones can get it together, he should have some great point outputs for the end of your seasons and fantasy playoffs.
Jameis Winston, New Orleans (Owned in 1 percent of leagues)
If you were one of the people to already have Winston on your roster or one of the people who grabbed him off the waiver, sell him. New Orleans hasn’t publicly committed to Winston as the true backup and I believe that we could be seeing some sort of situation in New Orleans where we have “Backup A” and “Backup B” in Winston and Taysom Hill. I’m sure the Drew Brees manager would be willing to give you some sort of compensation out of desperation, so take whatever they offer.
This is by no means a true “Buy Low” but more of a recommendation that you should go out and buy Henry at all costs. As we get into the fantasy playoffs, Henry is going to be the running back you want to have. Not only is he one of the best in the leagues, but he has literally the BEST running back fantasy playoff schedule in facing Jacksonville, Detroit and Green Bay throughout Weeks 14-16. He won’t come cheap, but this is the guy you want to have if you’re staring fantasy playoffs in the face. Buy him.
While Aaron Jones did have a solid start to the season, he has seemingly cooled off since coming back from injury and I just don’t think that he is going to get back to where he was. Last year, Jones had almost 20 touchdowns on the season, but this year he has yet to even get ten; now he draws some tough running defenses in Indianapolis, Chicago and Philadelphia. Rolling all this together, it’s just too hard to trust him as an RB1 and I would like to trade him for a different player. There is someone out there who might make the trade for Jones.
