Week 6 Trades (For/Away)

October 17, 2018



Well...Week 6 is done. And more confusion has set in. I'm going to order a bottle of some hair growing supplement and have the NFL pay for it because I'm just going nuts over here.


If the NFL wants to go nuts...let's go nuts.


Trade Tip: You're going to have to take chances when you're not doing as well as you thought you would. Like those teams that should be taking advantage of the bottom teams, losing teams are going to have to parlay great players into good players and hope for some diamonds in the rough.


Trade Away:



Jordan Howard, RB, Bears


Not too difficult here. Cohen keeps performing well and as long as he does, Howard will have to see less time on the field. He's also not game script proof. The team went to him through the air early in the season (9 targets first 2 weeks), but has since backed off. It also looks like Trubisky is going to be given the green light to sling it down field, a place where you won't find Howard.



Javorius Allen, WR, Ravens


Allen has never been good on the ground (3.7 ypc in career). This year he's at 2.8 and rookie Gus Edwards rushed 10 times for 42 yards. Allen has value in ppr leagues, but his time in the run game maybe drying out. If you have him, it maybe time to package him to upgrade at another position.




Corey Davis, WR, Titans


11 sacks. 11 sacks of Mariota last game. This offense is still trying to figure itself out, but with a new coach and a non-existent run game, it's going to be difficult to predict when the passing game will be taking off. Mariota hasn't Only passed for over 130 yards once. This all makes Davis a hard player to predict. Even with the opportunity, it's time to package him to attempt to upgrade your team.



Sammy Watkins, WR, Chiefs


It's a good idea to have a part of this offense on your team. However, Watkins is going to be the odd man out when it comes to consistency (5,7,8,1,8,4 targets first 6 games). With Hunt getting more involved in the passing game, Watkins becomes, possibly, the 4th read on plays. Use the fact that he's on the Chiefs offense to package him.



Aaron Jones, RB, Packers


The Packers are not going to get away from using 3 RBs. They should, but they won't. They should make Jones the workhorse, but that doesn't look like it's going to happen. RBs are hard to come by, but you're only making this move to upgrade and try to take advantage of one of the bottom teams.



Trade For:



Corey Clement, RB, Eagles


The TD saved his week and Smallwood had more carried, but Clement is the more talented RB and the Eagles should go to him more often. Check to see if his owner is disappointed and maybe looking to move on from him. He should be fine as long as the Eagles don't bring in another talented RB.




Keenan Allen, WR, Chargers


Another day, another no TD game for Allen. He's getting the targets and catches, but no TDs. The Chargers are a well oiled offensive team with one of the better QBs in the league. And you always want that QBs number 1 WR. The Allen owner maybe a bit down after he failed to record a TD for the 5th straight week. The to package some good players for this sleeping giant.



Jarvis Landry, WR, Browns


Landry hasn't had less than 7 targets all year. Yes, you should have him on your team. It's unfair to expect a rookie to come out his first year and make his No.1 weapon great. Landry will continue to get peppered with targets all year. Use this last week to see if the Landry owner is looking to move on from him.




Doug Baldwin, WR, Seahawks


After last week's debacle(1 rec, 1 yard), Baldwin came back and gave us a decent game. Baldwin owners may use this game to move him because they don't want to deal with whether or not he's going to stay healthy all year. Baldwin is tough. I think he's going to be relatively healthy on a team with very few reliable targets. If the owner is trying to get rid of him, you maybe able to get him at a discount.



Nyheim Hines, RB, Colts


With Marlon Mack back, the use of Hines is going to be more unpredictable. However, the Colts don't have that many weapons and Hines is talented. His snap percentage dropped from 67 to 43, but if you're one of the teams that need to trade for more good players that have the ability to give you a big play, here's one that may come at a discount because of the return of Mack.
