Fantasy Football Trade Advice

Players to Buy Low

Javonte Williams (RB – DEN)
The box score suggests Melvin Gordon is a thorn in Javonte Williams’s side. Peeling back the orange, we see that Williams played 65% of the snaps and saw 6/6 snaps inside the 10-yard line in Week2. He is currently the RB14 in PPR leagues, but if he scores a touchdown in Week 1 instead of fumbling, he is the RB6. If you have Miles Sanders, try to package his volume-driven start for a stud RB1 in Williams.

David Montgomery (RB – CHI)
After an awful Week 1 performance, averaging only 1.5 yards per rushing attempt, David Montgomery bounced back in Week 2. He averaged 8.1 yards per rushing attempt and scored 14.6 half-point PPR fantasy points despite not finding the end zone. More importantly, he played 80% of the snaps, out-snapping Khalil Herbert 33-8. The Chicago passing attack has struggled the first two games, meaning Montgomery could earn more work over the next few weeks. If you have Jeff Wilson, I would happily trade him away for Montgomery right now.

Courtland Sutton (WR – DEN)
Sutton is sitting at WR19 in PPR scoring through two weeks, having scored 3.9 fewer points than his expected points would indicate. You could say he’s underachieved, sure, but a more reasonable thought process would suggest that he has additional room to grow after looking good to start the season. On top of that, the offense has tons of room to grow and create additional opportunities for Sutton. There’s no doubt who the No. 1 wide receiver for this team is, but he may benefit even further from Jeudy’s rib injury. I would look to trade somebody like Rashod Bateman for Sutton. I like Bateman, but he’s leading the league with 27.8 yards per catch and will certainly see a dip in efficiency in the Ravens’ offense.
