Welcome back to Tuesday Morning Trades, a weekly column that will highlight players to target today before their prices change tomorrow. This week we saw LeGarrette Blount “look like the old LeGarrette” as he wrecked the Chargers for 156 yards. We saw Eddy Lacy “look like the old Eddie” as he rumbled through the Colts secondary in relief of the injured Chris Carson. I wonder if we’ll see “the old Adrian Peterson” sometime soon. It seems that whenever a player we love to hate has a big play, we weren’t wrong about him–he suddenly “looks like a totally different player.” As a fantasy owner, it’s useful to know when the community is hitting the haterade too hard. Everyone looks bad getting tackled in the backfield. Everyone looks good sprinting through huge holes to the secondary. I’ve got Jeremy Hill, Frank Gore, and Jonathan Stewart on the watchlist as guys that might head to the doghouse next.1 In the meantime, here are some of the best buys and sells at each position.
- Hill is probably already there. (back)
