Other Suggested Reads:
This past week, Philip Rivers(26-39, 330 yards, one fumble) and the San Diego Chargers struggled against what is believed to be a weak Indianapolis Colts defense. In the previous games the Colts defense was weak, but with Vontae Davis returning from injury it was a lot better. I was amazed on how much of an impact he made on the game and can see why he is regarded as one of the top cornerbacks in the league.
For Rivers, his next two games are looking very juicy. He gets to face the New Orleans Saints on a short week, and they have to travel a crossed the country to San Diego. The week after that, Rivers gets the Oakland Raiders who are currently ranked 30th against quarterbacks this season.
Quarterback – Sell High
His next three games are;
- Week 4: vs Carolina
- Week 5: @Denver
- Week 6: @Seattle
For most people they drafted Ryan as their second quarterback so if you have another reliable option consider trying to Sell High especially to the owner of Russell Wilson.
Running Back – Buy Low
The Houston Texans have been feeding Lamar Miller a heavy workload this season and it’s starting to concern owners because his yards per carry is low at 3.6 and has yet to score a touchdown. This season Miller is averaging 28 touches a game, that’s a 448 touch pace.
With that kind of workload, Miller will score plenty of fantasy points. He will start to score some touchdowns with that type of workload also so if you see an owner panicking on Miller buy him.
Last I encourage everyone to see how easy Miller’s schedule gets after week seven.
Running Back – Sell High
Currently, LeGarrette Blount is tied for 2nd in points among running backs in standard leagues. He has racked up 298 yards, four touchdowns on 75 carries. That is an average of 25 carries a game.
Last season with Tom Brady, Blount only averaged 14 carries a game. When Brady comes back next week, the New England Patriots will go back to a passing team. Let’s not forget that Rob Gronkowski has been unhealthy this season also and once he returns that will take some touchdowns away from Blount.
I believe Blount has a good game this week but with all the hype about Brady returning next week, I think this is the week to Sell High on Blount.
Odell Beckham Jr.
Wide Receiver – Buy Low
Personally, I think it is insane that this is even a possibility but that’s the world of fantasy football I guess. Odell Beckham this season has 19 catches for 280 yard and zero touchdowns. People are over reacting to the zero touchdowns.
His match-up against the Minnesota Vikings this week is tough but anytime someone can grab an elite player like Beckham at a discount, I will encourage you to do so. For anyone who doesn’t think he is elite, this past week he became the quickest player to 200 catches. He accomplished that in 30 games, it took Jerry Rice 44 games to accomplish that.
So if you can Buy Low on Beckham, please do so.
Wide Receiver- Sell high
I couldn’t tell if that was Trevor Siemian playing quarterback or if it was Peyton Manning in his prime. Siemian threw for 312 yards and four touchdowns and I don’t believe that will happen again all season.
Emmanuel Sanders benefitted from the passing explosion with nine catches, 117 yards, and two touchdowns. In the previous two games, Sanders had eight catches for 78 yards and zero touchdowns.
The Denver Broncos will be a team that relies on great defense and controlling the clock with their running game. This game was a fluke, so Sell High on Sanders now.
Tight End- Buy Low
We have seen Reed be the focal point of a passing offense and has been unlucky so far this season in finding the end zone. Touchdowns are a fluky statistic and when you see a player that is this involved in the offense and hasn’t had under 55 receiving yards in a game yet this season, it will only be a matter of time until he finds the end zone.
Reed plays the Cleveland Browns this week who rank 22nd in fantasy points given up to tight ends this season. I expect Reed to break out this game.
Tight End – Sell High
If you just look at the box score you will think Zach Miller had a fantastic game with eight catches, 79 yards, and two touchdowns. Most of his production came in the second half when the Chicago Bears were losing by three touchdowns. His second touchdown came with under three minutes left in the game when the Dallas Cowboys were in prevent defense.
In the first two games, he managed only seven catches for 47 yards and wasn’t involved in the offensive game plan. Personally, I won’t trust a tight end who has Brian Hoyer passing him the ball so if you can Sell High after one good game, then I encourage you to do so.
