Buy Or Sell Week 10

Buy

Jordan Howard, RB, Eagles

Howard was the Eagles’ primary ball carrier in Sunday’s defeat to the Chargers. Howard has run 29 times for 128 yards and three touchdowns in his last two games. In Week 9, he had seven more carries than Boston Scott. He seems to have curried the favor of the coaching staff, and should still have a role when Miles Sanders comes back. 

James Conner, RB, Cardinals

Chase Edmonds suffered a high-ankle injury, so Conner’s role in the Arizona offense should expand greatly. After a three-touchdown performance in Week 9, the former Steeler may be considered a lock as a high-end RB2. Look to acquire him before he has a huge game.

Michael Carter, RB, Jets

Carter disappointed his managers after a strong Week 8 effort in which he finished as the week’s No. 1 rushing back. He struggled against Indy’s run defense, accumulating 49 yards on 13 rushes and 37 yards receiving. Take this opportunity to acquire him, as QB Mike White should be back to target Carter early and often.

Jerry Jeudy, WR, Broncos 

The 22-year-old wideout hasn’t broken out since returning from an ankle ailment, but the potential is there. Jeudy has been targeted on 25% of his pass routes this season as of Week 10. As he rounds back into form, expect his value to rise. Take the opportunity while his value isn’t on the climb just yet.

Sell

Matt Ryan, QB, Falcons

He threw for 343 yards and three touchdowns on 23 of 30 attempts against the Saints. His schedule gets tougher going forward, and you shouldn’t expect Ryan to put up QB1 numbers for the remainder of the season. If given the chance, I’d sell high on him.

Damien Harris, RB, Patriots

The 24-year-old has six touchdowns in his last five games, so you should look to turn that into a piece for another back (CONNER!!!!). Harris is solid, but is dealing with injury issues and should be dealt for someone that can bring you more consistency.

Devonta Freeman, RB, Ravens

With Latavius Murray out in Week 9, Freeman dominated the Ravens’ backfield. He rushed for 79 yards on 13 carries and grabbed two of three catches for four yards and a score on two of three attempts. Murray is expected out for a while, so Freeman should be in the lead-back role for the time being. If he has a couple of good games, parlay that before the trade deadline into some good pieces you can use later on in the season. 

Tim Patrick, WR, Broncos

Patrick had his finest game of the season against Dallas in Week 9, catching four of five receptions for 85 yards and a score. The return of Jerry Jeudy will limit his ceiling, so use his current numbers to swing a deal elsewhere.
