Tuesday Trades: 8 Buys and 4 Sells for Week 6

Welcome back to Tuesday Morning Trades, a weekly column that will highlight players to target today before their prices change tomorrow. Major injuries to J.J. Watt and Odell Beckham Jr. cast a pall over an otherwise pretty exciting week of football. But it’s a “next man up” league, and fantasy opportunities will be created from injury every week of the season. Nothing’s clinched yet, and there is still hope for those slow-starting teams–last year, Jay Ajayi and Jordan Howard were just getting started around now. Getting your mind free from preseason ADP, and making reasonable but bold-seeming trades, can be that first step out of the cellar. Here are some of the best buys and sells at each position.

  1. who do you like more long term Thielen or snead?

  2. @Gohio I would do that. McKinnon is a dicey start in Standard. Howard is getting touchdowns and that's what you're after. It obviously depends what your QB situation becomes, but moving a QB and a ppr back to get a potentially top TD guy in Howard is a move I like. I think Trubisky showed enough that the offense shouldn't implode or anything.

    @FantasyNerd If you can get Amari for Jones, I'd do that in a second. You could throw in Corey Davis too, which is a fairer offer, especially if you need to win games now, record-wise.

    @kdenigris If you can get Cooks for like Kelvin or Amendola + Jerick or Ellington, that would be interesting. I don't even mind Cooks/Amendola on the same team, since it's the Patriots. Gotta be careful of the bye weeks though, so take those into consideration. Maybe you can keep targeting guys who already has their bye as the weeks go on.

  3. @kdenigris Not necessarily, because Keenan and Fitz have been so close. But I do prefer Keenan, partly because it's .5 ppr and he is running somewhat deeper routes and is probably better after the catch at this point. DJ is coming back at some point, and Fitz has benefited from injuries to the other receivers who seem healthy now. If there are good waiver pick ups, that really softens the blow of losing Duke/Jerick, so I don't mind it. Neither are as valuable in .5 ppr, and hitting people in the face with AJG, Evans, Keenan will be nice, esp if Diggs is limited for a while.

    @mateoloco if he wants Jones, then I'd just give him Jones+Jaron for TyMo. Nobody knows how it's going to play out, but my guess is that Tymo has a safe 50% snaps, and Jones/Williams will share the other snaps. Tymo seems more likely to have an impact in the passing game. But I would read the reports coming out of GB very closely--I don't have any special insight here. If you can get Baldwin for McKinnon, I'd do that in a start 4 WR format.

  4. @turndownforwatt I'm not sure if I'm missing something here. I think Ertz is a 4th round pick or so if we drafted today, and AP is like a 15th round pick or something. I'd also rather have Gio, so I wouldnt' counter, I would just hit accept as fast as I could. It wouldn't shock me if AP has some good games, but I think he'll mostly be unusable and won't catch a lot of passes.

    Then you can trade either TE for a much better RB.

  5. Steven says:

    Standard league, I'm in 1st place and comfortably so. Looking to playoffs, what are the thoughts on this trade:

    Give: Fitzgerald + Funchess
    Receive: Julio

    Current Receivers: Fitz, Demaryius, Diggs, Funchess, Parker, Fuller
