Fantasy Football Trade Advice

Players to Buy

Josh Jacobs (RB – LV)
Feed Josh. Week 4 was a monster for Jacobs who rushed for 144 yards on 28 carries. But the best part about his day was that he rolled over his receiving usage from Week 3. He caught 5 balls on 6 targets while running a route on 64% of dropbacks. With receiving usage and back-to-back weeks with a top-3 elite opportunity share (92% in Week 4), Jacobs has the chance to finish the season as fantasy RB1. Zamir White had just two carries and Brandon Bolden one target in Week 4.

Garrett Wilson (WR – NYJ)

Buy Garrett Wilson. The Jets WR finished second in targets and route participation in Zach Wilson‘s first start of the 2022 season. Only Corey Davis saw more targets (7), but Wilson ran more routes. Leverage Davis’ TD score and Wilson’s two-catch game to buy low on the talented rookie. 22% target share this season.

Pat Freiermuth (TE – PIT)

The Muth is going to get loose with Kenny Pickett presumably taking over as the Steelers’ starting quarterback. He saw a 36% target share in Week 4 after a down Week 3, and half of his targets (8 total) came in the second half from his rookie QB. He tied rookie George Pickens for the most targets in Pickett’s debut.
