The Buy Low Report – Week 2

“As a final humiliation, you must walk home naked, dragging behind you the stone of shame” – Number One (Homer The Great)
Welcome to the Week 2 Buy Low Report. Before we get started, I’d like to issue a mea culpa on Kareem Hunt. Hunt came out and smashed all expectations in Week 1, posting 45.6 PPR points despite playing only 58 percent of the snaps.1 Hunt’s Week 1 performance is an obvious outlier,2 but he’s the locked in starting running back for the Chiefs. Assuming Hunt remains healthy, his opportunity share alone could propel him to an RB1 finish this season. If you’re fielding trade offers for him this week, only sell if you can sell incredibly high. Hopefully my advice this week fares slightly better. Let’s get into the trades for Week 2.
“Remove the stone of shame. Attach the stone of triumph!” –  Number One (Homer The Great)
  1. Hunt touched the ball 22 times despite his low snap count, so this is likely a poor indicator of his usage going forward.  (back)
  2. His Week 1 point total was the fifth-highest for all running backs over the last five seasons.  (back)
