Each week we’ll take a look at the top trade targets for each position. Trade targets can be any player at any time throughout the season. The objective (when possible) is to “buy low” and “sell high,” acquiring and getting rid of players as they are hitting their peak or before they lose their value.

My main takeaway from Week 9 of Thursday Night Football is that the Houston Texans have a lot of players that I have never heard of. That either means I’m really bad at my job, or that the Houston front office is even more lackluster at theirs. Four tight ends in this game were projected to score fantasy points, including the Texans’ Jordan Akins and some guy named Brevin Jordan. But it was in fact TE Teagan Quitoriano, projected for zero points in this matchup, who put Houston ahead, 7-0, with a two-yard touchdown reception from QB Davis Mills in the first quarter. Also of news: the Texans have players named Chris Moore (4 receptions, 43 yards, 1 TD) and Tyron Johnson (1 reception, eight yards). This is a real thing. On the Eagles’ side, QB Jalen Hurts (21-27, 243 yards, 2 TD; 9 carries, 23 yards) and WR A.J. Brown (4 receptions, 59 yards, 1 TD) were up to their usual tricks, but it was TE Dallas Goedert (8 receptions, 100 yards, 1 TD) and RB Miles Sanders (17 carries, 93 yards, 1 TD) who really kicked HC Lovie Smith (1 really white beard, 1 win, 6 losses) in the crotch.

What are air yards, you say? The name kind of gives it away, doesn’t it? Air yards, irreverently discussed in this air yards primer, matter because we actually get some context of how much a quarterback WANTED to get their receiver the ball, not just how often the receiver could catch it. It’s a stat […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It is Week 9, and we are once again in “bye-pocalypse.” There are six teams on a bye this week. Those teams are Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, New York Giants, Pittsburgh Steelers and the San Francisco 49ers. NFL Week 9 IDP. While these teams may not have you worried on the offensive end […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
in Weeks 4 and 5Aaahh, Week 6 is here. The week of negotiating a lineup with players on a bye. Trying to decide whether the injured player is worth keeping on your roster or you must let him go. The week of deciding if five weeks of data constitute a trend (it does) and deciphering […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The injury bug has not only affected the offensive side of the ball. Defensive players are dropping like a prom dress, as well. Very few teams have not seen an injury to a vital part of their defense. Unfortunately, that also means an injury to a vital part of your fantasy IDP rosters. Here are […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Starting off with a quick bit of housekeeping, here: I’ve already covered Davante Adams, Hunter Renfrow, Ja’Marr Chase, Amon-Ra St. Brown, D.J. Chark and more in my Week 1 Target Report, so don’t forget to check that one out as well! Here and now, we look to Week 1 snap counts. Who were the busy […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I get it, defenses aren’t sexy. There is no way around it the NFL is not concerned with bringing sexy back to the defense. Considering the new rules and the ungodly passing numbers of offenses continually put up it is a wonder that defenses are even on the field. But you know they do make […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
We all know it is a passing league. In addition to having a great pass rush, having a secondary that will make the quarterback think once or twice about passing in their area seems important. A lockdown secondary is essential in this NFL. “Nothing on the defensive side of the football translates better to points […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
For some, the defense is an afterthought in fantasy football circles (unless you are playing IDP). Even if your fantasy league doesn’t employ defenses, knowing a defense’s weakness or strength can help you when choosing your roster. To paraphrase the best offense is to know your defenses Did you know that quarterbacks and wide receivers […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The last 18 months greeted us with a lot of fundamental change and unexpectedness in our daily lives. One thing that has stayed relatively constant is the complete clusterfart provided by the fantasy tight end position. In 2021, some of you used heavy draft capital to snag Travis Kelce, Darren Waller or George Kittle — maybe even Mark Andrews — in which case, you hit if you got Kelce or Andrews at fair value, but Kittle has been an injury-derailed bust yet again, and while Waller has been a top five-to-six TE, he hasn’t had the booms (outside of Week 1) you’d like to see with that level of investment. With the way this position has played out this year, we can surmise at least 50% of fantasy owners missed at the TE position in 2021. Out of FantasyPros’ top-10 tight ends in terms of draft rankings (ECR) entering the season, FIVE are currently outside of the top-10 fantasy tight ends through Week 6 — four of which are outside the top 14 while three are outside of the top 20 (Kittle, Logan Thomas, Robert Tonyan). Luckily, some owners have already found their saving grace by snagging Dawson Knox or Dalton Schultz (yours truly), but not all have been so lucky, and most of us play in enough leagues where we’re still looking for help with one or more teams. But have no fear, as the answer is near. All you need to do is ask: Please, sir, can I have some Mo’.Please, blog, may I have some more?
