With just a few weeks left before the playoffs and then the weeks of the playoffs themselves, the looming trade deadline in most fantasy football leagues is beginning to get people anxious. When you thinking about who to move and who to get before it’s too late, make sure it is one of these 10 players. Below I will tell you what is so intriguing about these guys and who can help you win now to get into the playoffs and who can help you win once you get in.
D.J. Moore, Chicago Bears
D.J. Moore is one of those buy-low targets as he has been bench worth with Tyson Bagent as his quarterback. However, with Justin Fields, he was a top-10 receiver and should be getting Fields back any week. You should be able to get him low.
Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys
Not only has Dak Prescott been dominating lately, he has one of the best playoff schedules in Weeks 14-17 seeing the Philadelphia Eagles, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, and Detroit Lions in that span. On top of that, he has scored over 34 points in each of his last three games.
Austin Ekeler, Los Angeles Chargers
Austin Ekeler is one of the bigger named trade targets on this list as it will surely take a star to pry him from whomever rosters him in your league. However, he, like Prescott, has one of the best playoff schedules and will outscore stars of his caliber.
Rachaad White, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Rachaad White has been a surprising breakout star for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He is the No. 8 running back on the season and sees two really bad rushing defenses in the next three weeks. He doesn’t have the best playoff schedule, but he is a target if you are trying to flip someone just to get into the playoffs.
Zay Flowers, Baltimore Ravens
Zay Flowers was a sneaky trade target, but now, with the injury on Thursday Night Football to Mark Andrews, Flowers could take a huge step up in productivity. He saw three receptions on four targets on Thursday despite having two touchdowns called back on penalties. His time will come, and you will want him when it does.
Trey McBride, Arizona Cardinals
There are several tight ends who have broken onto the scene that are now startable or FLEX plays with Trey McBride being one of those. The better scenario is that he becomes Kyler Murray’s favorite target moving forward after he saw nine targets and eight receptions in Murray’s first game back this season.
Tee Higgins, Cincinnati Bengals
Tee Higgins is another buy-low target considering he hasn’t seen the field in two straight games. This is a target for someone who is securely in the playoffs and is looking to flip. Higgins will be a valuable asset once back on the field, especially if Burrow isn’t good to go.
Keaton Mitchell, Baltimore Ravens
Keaton Mitchell is a boom-or-bust player. He has only seen an average of 6-7 attempts per game and has taken some for 30-yard touchdowns and some for just 33 yards total. If he continues to get an increased workload, he could be a great addition to your team down the stretch.
Jerome Ford, Cleveland Browns
Jerome Ford has one of the easiest playoff schedules for running backs in Weeks 14-17 seeing the Chicago Beas, Houston Texans, and New York Jets in that stretch. In the last two games, Ford has seen 20 and 17 attempts, taking last game’s carries for 107 yards. He seems to be, for the time being, firmly in front of Kareem Hunt.
Kyren Williams, Los Angeles Rams
Kyren Williams could be a player that you could get sneaky value on right now. He is one week away from coming off of the IR and should immediately be back implanted as an RB1 on the Rams and on your roster. If you can get him for a sell-high star, flip him immediately.
