This is it everyone. Last trade article of the season. Take those risks if you need to because you don't want to see someone you could've gotten in a trade blow up along with your opportunity to make the playoffs.
Trade Tip: Make sure you pay attention to the teams that have looked to pack it in for the year and those that may not be playing their star players as they have locked things up before the playoffs. If an NFL team is out of contention, they may sit players that have minor injuries for the remainder of the year.
Marlon Mack, RB, Colts
Don't worry about what happened to him against the Jaguars (12 rushes for 29 yards). Mack will continue to see the bulk of the carries. He also has 11 targets in his last 4 games. The Colts look set, at least for the rest of the year, to let Mack show then what he has to offer. As long as they believe in him, you should too. He is more than likely depth at RB for someone's team. Try and pry him away along with another good player for a great player if you're desperate.
Alshon Jeffery, WR, Eagles
2 underwhelming weeks in a row (8 catches for 83 yards total in 2 weeks) should start to shake up the Jeffery owners some. They may feel like the trust needed to start him in the playoffs is diminishing. This is where you come in if you're looking to grab a WR with a good QB. It's fair to be nervous about starting Jeffery, but if you need him for depth or desperate for someone who may help you get into the playoffs, go after him, as long as the price is right.
Mike Evans, WR, Bucs
I know I had him on this last week, but another putrid week from this WR with the potential of being elite has to have owners scratching their heads. If his owner is getting nervous as the fantasy playoffs are approaching, now's the time to go in and try to steal him.
Doug Martin, RB, Raiders
Oh well. Freakin’ may as well have him on here. The guy has double digit carries in his last 3 games (13,11,15), and it's not looking good for Marshawn Lynch regarding his return. The fact that it's Doug Martin and it's the Raiders has me second guessing this, but the man is more than likely going to have the bulk of the work going forward. I wouldn't pay too much for him. Try and get him as part of a package.
Sony Michel, RB, Patriots
I know this sounds a little crazy, but the success of this team and it's fantasy relevant players has always corresponded with Brady's success. However, we may be seeing the fall of Brady happening right before our very eyes (1 passing TD in last 3 games). This is in no way indicative of how I feel about Michel. This is more on how I feel about the trajectory of the the team. I like Michel, but if you can sell him high for someone who will give you a more steady fantasy output, you might want to do that.
LeSean McCoy, RB, Bills
This is simply an attempt to sell high on a player, on an offense that doesn't consistently move the ball down field to get him opportunities. McCoys big week (26 carries,113 yards, 2 TDs) presents an opportunity for owners to trade him to a team that's a little more desperate for help for maybe a player that's a little more stable.
Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Cardinals
2 weeks of double digit targets (10,12) and 4 weeks of 8 or more in a row would look good for anyone, but other than David Johnson, no other player on this team should be trusted as you go into the fantasy playoffs.
Leonard Fournette, RB, Jaguars
I know I've had him in this article before, but as we get closer to the fantasy playoffs, you're going to have to ask yourself how comfortable you are with him on this team that is a shadow of itself. The offense will feature Fournette as shown this past week (29 total touches for 109 total yards and 2 TDs), but if you're one of the teams that suffered through his time out with the injury, and you're pushing to get more help, it's not a bad idea to try and trade him for multiple players. The team looks to be out of the race in the division and I think if Fournette were to have another injury, the team would shut him down for the year.
