Welcome back to Tuesday Trades, a weekly column that will highlight players to target today before their prices change tomorrow. That old Fitzmagic has me in its spell. That old Fitzmagic that you weave so well. Despite entering almost every season as a backup, Ryan Fitzpatrick has averaged 13.5 games played over the last nine years. On Sunday, he’ll notch his 117th career start–and first as a Buc–against none other than the Jets. Somebody better take a closer look at that Jameis Winston “acupuncture doll” Fitzpatrick keeps in his locker. This week I’m putting a little bit more focus on playoff preparation, whether your team is scrambling for a playoff spot, or you’ve got a bye all but locked up. One strategy I’m recommending for teams on the bubble who happen to have top QBs is flipping the QB for help elsewhere and adding one of the targets below. At wide receiver, I have some bounce-back candidates for needy teams, and a sell high for playoff-bound teams shedding risk. And at running back, as always, get them cheap. Here are some of the best buys and sells at each position.
