Week 10 Fantasy Football Trade Analyzer: Three players to trade for this week

Week 10 has some interesting values out there, starting with three young players that are coming into their own. Let’s look at some options to acquire for the home stretch.

Jerry Jeudy, WR, Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos are an interesting offense, full of young talent across the board. Second-year wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, who recently returned from injury, has been coming into his own and has breakout potential to finish up the fantasy season.

In his second week back from injury, Jeudy led the team with 8 targets, catching 6 for 69 yards. There was speculation that Courtland Sutton might maintain his top-dog role in this passing game. But the fact is and has always been, that Jeudy is the first option in this offense. He should be a solid WR2, or better, for the rest of the season.

Rashod Bateman, WR, Baltimore Ravens

It isn’t a week of fantasy football content without me writing about Rashod Bateman. He is one of my favorite young wide receivers in the league.

Bateman has seen at least 6 targets in his first three career games. In Week 9, he saw 8 but hasn’t found the end zone. Nevertheless, his target share is solid, and he’s a weekly flex play moving forward. If Bateman takes a step forward and begins seeing work in the red zone, his value will skyrocket. If you can trade for Bateman at a low cost, do it.

Justin Fields, QB, Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears first-round pick showed up in a big way last week, giving his first major breakout game from a passing perspective in his young career. The chemistry is getting there with his skill players (except for Allen Robinson, which is incredibly frustrating), and he made some throws against a tough Steelers defense that were truly special.

Two weeks ago, Fields finished with 26.3 fantasy points. In Week 9, he had 19.1. He’s showing that he can beat defenses through the air and with his rushing ability. Fields is on a bye this week, but the rookie is coming on strong. Over the last two weeks, he’s the overall QB3 and will make for an interesting option for the remainder of the season. He’s a good speculative trade piece.

Week 10 Fantasy Football Trade Analyzer: Three players to trade away this week

Time to take a look at which players deserve consideration to be traded away. Knowing which players to cash in on is equally as important as knowing who to trade for. Here are three options to consider moving on from.

James Conner, RB, Arizona Cardinals

I know moving on from a running back can be hard, but if you’re fortunate enough to have plenty of depth at the position, moving on from James Conner could be a worthwhile decision.

Conner is coming off a monster 3-touchdown game, which has him tied for the lead league with 10 rushing TDs on the season. With Chase Edmonds injured and set to miss multiple weeks, many are treating Conner like a back-end RB1 right now.

Personally, I believe we will see more of Eno Benjamin in this offense than people want to believe.

Prior to his 21 carries for 96 yards and 3 TDs in Week 9, Conner averaged 11.8 carries for 44.8 yards per game. With a full week of Benjamin factoring into the game plan, I expect Conner’s numbers to look closer to his season averages than to what we saw in Week 9. Trade him, and sell high.

Olamide Zaccheaus, WR, Atlanta Falcons

Any time a player scores multiple touchdowns, looking at their usage to determine if it looks like sustainable success is a good idea. Olamide Zaccheaus, who scored 2 TDs in Week 9, has seen 4 or fewer targets in every game since Week 3. His 58 receiving yards were also a season-high.

Zaccheaus is an unreliable dart throw. If I can get anything in return for him in a trade that returns a player with more upside or consistency to offer, I’ll gladly make that move.

Odell Beckham Jr, WR, Free Agent

I detailed my reasons in a separate article about why now is a good time to trade Odell Beckham Jr. However, with the perceived increase in value of him landing potentially with Patrick Mahomes or Aaron Rodgers, it’s a great time to move on from OBJ.

In short, Beckham having a sustainable enough path to return even WR2 value for the remainder of the season seems like a stretch, no matter where he lands. If you have a manager in your league thinking that this will be the return of 2017 OBJ, capitalize on it and trade him. I’ve seen some trades go through where the return is treating Beckham like a top-16 WR. That’s far too high.
