Looking for Week 11 Buy-Low/Sell-High candidates? Take a listen to Smitty and Russ Bliss talk about players worth selling high on and worth buying low on entering Week 11 of the 2016 fantasy football season.
Below we have our Week 10 Buy-Low/Sell-High candidates heading into Week 10 of the 2016 fantasy football season. Take a listen to Smitty and Russ talk specifically about: Ben Roethlisberger, Devonta Freeman, Todd Gurley, Spencer Ware Antonio Brown, DeAndre Hopkins, Dez Bryant, Brandin Cooks
As we head into Week 9, it’s time to take a hard look at Buy-Lows, but from a dynasty angle. Of course, many of these buy-low opportuniteis will be equally beneficial in redraft, and I’ll mention that within each write-up when relevant, so this article will attack all formats. Let’s get to it!
Ok, no one is going to sell you Todd Gurley at RB2-type value in dynasty, although, in redraft, you can absolutely catch someone selling way too low, especially if that owner is worried that they may not even make their 2016 league playoffs. So, try to get Gurley at high-end RB2-type value! I was able to get him at this value in one league last week, it’s possible. Back to dynasty… so, the kind of value Gurley can be had at in dynasty seems to float around the DeMarco Murray, Lamar Miller and even Jay Ajayi range. Assuming he stays healthy all year, I have no questions about drafting Gurley in the top 1-6 overall range in any 2017 start-up dynasty draft. In my opinion, Gurley will never again see value outside of the top 10 overall, and that’s about where he is being valued in dynasty right now. Buy-low! This is low-risk and super, super-high reward.
DeAndre Hopkins is in the same situation as Todd Gurley up above… the guy is being valued near the bottom of all WR1s in both redraft and dynasty, and slightly lower in redraft in some cases. This is a monster steal. Even with a struggling passing game in Houston, elite WRs like Hopkins find a way to pull in passes, and often times, struggling teams are throwing more-than-expected passes in the third- and fourth-quarters each and every week. In dynasty, Hopkins is a monster low-risk steal and he remains in my top 1-4WRs in dynasty and he is still a top 4-7WR for me this year for Weeks 9-16.
Allen Robinson has been a buy-low candidate for eight-straight weeks now… when is it time to give up on the idea of him being an elite fantasy WR1? I say don’t give up at all, not in terms of dynasty. He is proven, the skill is there, and while there is a chance Jacksonville still has QB problems in 2017, I’ll bank on things improving from here on out and especially during 2017. It’s time to buy-low in dynasty. The dude is a fantasy WR1, folks. He is a beast. Don’t let a bad situation, that could easily turn round even this year, have you running away from this amazing buy-low opportunity.
I think many don’t realize how good of a season Jarvis Landry is having in both the yards and receptions departments. He had a bye in Week 8, but if you pace-out his 7-played games this year, he is on pace for 105 receptions and 1,307 yards. That’s an impressive season in those stat categories. Of course, he only has 1TD this year, and that’s where the doubt and disappointment kick in. But, this has everything to do with Tannehill and that Miami coaching staff/game planning. I firmly believe things will only improve, if not this year, then next year, so I think we will see a huge 2017 campaign by Landry, and we might even see him have more TDs moving forward. Mix that with his already-awesome yards/receptions production, and you have yourself a low-end fantasy WR1.
The guy was a monster breakout on almost everyone’s preseason rankings… injuries have many ‘moving on’, and that’s a great thing for people looking to build for next year and potentially down the stretch this year should he bounce-back big-time from injury.
I realize the guy is very much in the spotlight now, and at a glance, you’d think now wouldn’t be a time to buy-low. The thing is, though, the passer is still on waivers in some larger leagues, and for some crazy reason, there is still some “Will he be starting after Week 9” talk floating around. People either love or hate this guy, and the almost-even divide has him still very much undervalued. And, while he is getting better and better each week from a fantasy perspective, he is still kind of a borderline QB1 in larger leagues, meaning he won’t cost an arm and a leg to acquire via trade. The attractive part about buying him low, though, is that many are almost recklessly-assuming that he won’t get better. It’s not that people are forgetting that he is a rookie, they are almost ignoring the fact that he is a rookie. He will only improve each and every season, and in one year from today, he could be cranking out consistent top 5-8 fantasy quarterback numbers. Imagine if he improved. He was a Bold Prediction for a reason — he has a bright future!
I posted a Jordy Nelson write-up on the Fantasy Stock Market earlier in the week, but I think it’s important to remind everyone how critical it is to buy-low on some of these final remaining undervalued studs, because their values will rebound soon and those that don’t act will miss out! I have a feeling Nelson is going to go nuts in Week 8, and you can read more about it on the Stock Market (if you haven’t already.
As we head into Week 8 of the 2016 fantasy football season, it’s time to dig into some of the final huge Buy-Low Candidates, the kind of buy-lows that can win a league or get you back into the playoff hunt! There are still several big name players left that fit the bill. Let’s get to it!
(10/22/16) We have only a handful of HUGE buy-low players left heading into the remainder of the season. Of course, there are always buy-low opportunities in fantasy football, from Weeks 1-16. However, I’m talking about HUGE buy-low targets, like…
(10/19/16) The Packers traded for Chiefs RB Knile Davis on Tuesday and then news later in the afternoon suggested that Eddie Lacy will likely miss multiple weeks with his ankle. Ty Montgomery, who has experience at RB from college, could get more carries in Week 7 than anyone expects, and so could Cobb, but I’ve always
(10/18/16) The buy-low candidates have been pretty on the money so far this year, as we begged SleeperU owners to buy-low on Amari Cooper below during his string of mediocre outings (and people have short memories, there were forum topics where people were feeling he was bust-bound). We begged fantasy owners to buy-low on Devonta Freeman weeks ago, and last week we screamed
Looking for Buy-Low Players heading into Week 6 of the 2016 fantasy football season? Our Fantasy Stock Market has you covered!
(10/10/16) Odell Beckham is one of the best buy-low candidates heading into Week 6. Just like we beat into the ground last week (and the week before, and the week before) that Amari Cooper was bound to bust loose, I have little doubt, if any, that Odell Beckham will be a top 1-4 fantasy WR moving forward. Now, you can’t buy him dirt cheap, but it appears some are considering him outside the top 12 overall moving forward, which screams opportunity. With only 1TD so far this year, coming this past week, it’s time to attack (in both redraft and dynasty). I will even suggest that ODB pulls in 10-12 touchdowns this year, and that’s with him only having 1TD through 5 weeks, which means I have him scoring over 1.0 TDs per game moving forward.
