Buy or Sell Week 7

Welcome to Byemaggedon! this week, we will look to take advantage of the chaos to see if we can get some good values in trades. Welcome to Week 7!

Buy

Trey Lance, QB, 49ers

Lance had a decent start for a rookie going for 192 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. His value has taken a hit and he’s dealing with some injury issues. The job will be his sooner rather than later, so you should scoop him up cheaply now before he takes over.  Even if he struggles in the passing game, he had 16 carries for 89 yards in Week 5 and will provide you a great Konami floor to lean on as he develops as a passer.

Miles Sanders, RB, Eagles

Philadelphia has seemingly forgotten how to run the ball, driving Sanders’ value down to a shell of its former self. The OC came out this week and said that they needed to give Sanders more opportunities. Sanders’ schedule is set to lighten up with games against the Raiders, Lions, and Chargers coming up in the next three weeks, so use this time where his value is practically a negative to see if you can get him for basically free.  

D.J. Moore, WR, Panthers

Moore is coming off a pair of underwhelming performances, largely owing to quarterback Sam Darnold’s troubles. Moore has finished in the top 12 in PPR in half the weeks, so the production is there. Darnold is still targeting Moore, so use the struggles of Darnold to see if you can pry him away from a frustrated manager. 

Sell

Baker Mayfield, QB, Browns

Baker Mayfield has thrown multiple touchdown passes in back-to-back weeks. This offense will struggle without the Browns’ run game. Baker will have a massive uptick in passing attempts, especially with Jarvis Landry coming back off IR. Defenses will be able to key in with the running game suffering massive injuries. He’s not playing this week due to an injured shoulder, but even when he comes back, he is not set up for success. 

Damien Harris, RB, Patriots

Harris has a streak of 2 games with touchdowns and is coming off his second 100-yard game of the season, so he has great value right now. The injuries to running back and bye weeks around the lead will further pump up his value. Rhamondre Stevenson is also starting to eat into his workload, as well as performing well in the receiving game. Harris thus far has been a non-factor, and now is the perfect time to trade him. 

Marquez Callaway, WR, Saints

He grabbed four of eight targets for 85 yards and two touchdowns in Week 5 against Washington, which probably represents his ceiling in this offense.  He has too little volume for a week-to-week starter and the impending return of star-wideout Michael Thomas will significantly eat into his workload. Look for someone that has been bitten by an underachieving star player and see if you can deal away Callaway.
