FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 12

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 sometime 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: Dak Prescott, Dallas (Owned in 98 percent of leagues)

As a Dallas fan, I am completely embarrassed by how Dak played but that was due to a multitude of reasons. Elliott out. Tyron Smith out. Once Smith is back, his play will improve and Smith will be back before the the playoffs start and Elliott will be back for most Fantasy Football Championship matches so if you are a shoe in, or more than likely going to be in playoffs trade for him so you will have a great starter for the playoffs.

SELL HIGH: Alex Smith, Kansas City (Owned in 95.8 percent of leagues)

I warned people at the beginning of the season and those who didn’t listen are feeling the hurt now. Between Weeks 10 & 11 the Chiefs have scored two total touchdowns and Smith has thrown three interceptions. While I am not sure what you can sell Smith for at this point, take whatever you can for him.

RUNNING BACK

BUY LOW: Orleans Darkwa, New York Giants (Owned in 70.1 percent of leagues)

The Giants aren’t doing great but one thing you can say about them is that they are going to be committed to the run game. In the past three games, Darkwa has run for at least 70 yards which is great for his fantasy owners. Darkwa has also been involved in the passing game in the absence of some of the Giants receivers. Things are good for Darkwa’s fantasy outlook so if you can get him, you should because he seems to be averaging double digit fantasy points every game.

SELL HIGH: Latavius Murray (Owned in 70 percent of leagues)

In one of my earlier issues, I recommended buying low on Jerrick McKinnon, well I would like to follow up and say you need to sell high on Latavius Murray now. Murray managed to have a good game and score two touchdowns against the Rams, but if you look at the numbers he had the SAME amount of carries as McKinnon so it could have just as easily been McKinnon that scored those touchdowns. Murray is the weaker link in this backfield and I would love to straight up trade Murray for McKinnon.
