I just got in from leaf blowing, absolutely brutal. How has nobody come up with a better system to deal with leaves yet? What are the big tech companies spending all their resources on other than microchips for brain control? There’s a crisis in America that can be ignored no longer!Lx7#*&Gk Sorry, my hands are frozen because it’s like 4 degrees outside. Wait, why am I outside again?! The leaves have sucked me back in! Someone, please save me! *enter our hero D.K. Metcalf* While the touchdowns have been steady this year, with only one 100+ yard receiving performance on the season, Metcalf’s current owner may not be giving the Seahawks’ #1 the respect he deserves. This is especially true after the complete dud week 10 (3 catches for 26 yards) in Russell Wilson’s return to action. The athletic freak, Metcalf, has a higher upside than any other receiver in the game. Give him a chance to bring you in from the cold and save your season! Anyway, here’s some more players to buy or sell this week in fantasy football:

BUY

Kadarius Toney – The week 10 bye was well-timed for the Giants explosive rookie wideout who has likely been playing at less than 100% with both an ankle and a thumb injury. The kid could be a huge asset for your playoff run. 

D.J. Moore – Maybe you heard this on Sunday, Cam Newton thinks he’s back. What do I think? Let’s just say I’m skeptical, but if you scroll down a few inches you’ll still find the Newton name. This Moore-buy really has nothing to do with Cam though. After a huge start to the season, Moore is on an absolute dumpster dive with six straight disappointing weeks. He’s far better than that production indicates and should rebound in the coming weeks.

Van Jefferson – With Robert Woods done for the year, Jefferson’s value has skyrocketed. But the signing of OBJ has drawn a little attention away from Jefferson for the time being, giving us a nice buy window. Don’t expect the window to stay cracked too long. Jefferson > OBJ.

Kenny Golladay – I miss the dulcet tones of Kenny G. It’s hard to bank on him getting healthy based on the past 24 months, but he’s still a great upside gamble for the outside chance that he does return to form.

Bryan Edwards – No commentary is needed regarding the Henry Ruggs tragedy. But as one door closes, another buy window opens.

Marcus Johnson – Julio is no longer down by the schoolyard as he hits the IR. It appears Johnson is stiffening up to fill the hole, with 5 catches and 100 receiving yards in week 10 while leading the team with 6 targets. Grab the Johnson if you’re desperate for some action.

Rhamondre Stevenson Damien Harris’s status is TBD, but even if he does return next week it seems Stevenson has earned himself a share of the workload. And if Harris leaves the door open too long, there’s a chance Stevenson never lets him back through into the starting role.

D’Onta Foreman – Remember the rush to add Adrian Peterson and Jeremy McNichols? Mike Vrabel: “GOTCHA!” Foreman handled a team-high 11 carries and also kicked in two catches for 48 yards. I’m thinking I’d prefer to steer clear of this backfield altogether, but if you need RB depth and he’s available, you might as well throw a dart at Foreman.

Sony Michel – How many handcuffs are worth more than Michel? It’s a great offense that heavily utilizes their main RB, and that main RB happens to be a tad injury-prone. If you have the bench space, stash Michel.

Wayne Gallman – Gallman led the Falcons backfield with 15 carries. While most of these did come in second-half garbage time, Cordarrelle Patterson is also banged up so there’s a chance this could turn into more.

Darren Waller I said to buy Waller last week and so did Anime Donkey and nothing has changed. Except that he’s an even better buy after another disappointing game which would’ve been a nice game had his late touchdown not been called back.

Cam Newton – Is he back? I really don’t think so. But in a superflex league, you add any starting QB with a pulse. He still does have a pulse, right? Ahhhh, it’s Zombie Cam!

 

SELL

Darrel Williams – Will Darrel with one L still have a role in the offense once Edwards-Helaire returns? Almost certainly. That role may even be a 50/50 split. But the Chiefs interim back is coming off his best game of the season and CEH might be back in week 11. See if one of your friends wants to overpay for that week 10 production.

Melvin Gordon – This is your weekly sell Melvin Gordon announcement. If I keep saying it, I’ll be right eventually!

Hunter Henry – The Patriots tight end had a nice two TD performance in week 10, but it was also without Jonnu Smith on the field. To me, he’s still just a streaming option at tight end. If someone believes he’s more than that, take the deal and run.

Thanks for your perspective on van Jefferson. I bid on him on Friday night in one league where he was available. My gut said he is the better add when everyone spent much more on Beckham. Shallow bench league which I can’t stand but I got him. Toney was cut too. Would you cut pitts for him. This league is a superflex with two flex spots. we do not have to start a tight end. It is a rb, wr/te in one flex spot and suoerflex in the other. .5 ppr. Thanks.

Do I drop Boyd and/or AP to pick up Robby Anderson and/or Marcus Johnson?

I’d love to think Robby picks up his game with Cam in and the run game opened up again, but who knows. And the Titans are rolling lately, so perhaps MJ can fill the need for a WR2.
