Fantasy Football Trade Advice
Players to Buy
No Bengals bounce back, but a rebound performance for Tee Higgins. 8 for 89 yards and two TDs on a team-high 12 targets (31% target share). That’s why we chase the air yards, folks. Another quiet day for Ja’Marr Chase as the Bengals offense continues to underwhelm. Considering where Chase went in fantasy drafts, managers might be getting irritated. Buy LOW. Higgins’ big Week 2 game shows this offense can still create big weeks for WRs. And it could have easily been Chase with the monster game, considering he saw 4 red-zone targets but came up short of finding the end zone. His lulls are not out of the ordinary, so I’d be aggressive trying to acquire him.
If Joe Burrow is healthy – aggravated his calf strain – the next stretch of games is SALIVATING. Rams, Titans, Cardinals and Seahawks. Buy the Bengals.
A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith saw six and five targets, respectively, but Smith came away with the two TDs. AJB ran bad again, having one of his TDs called back due to a Penny holding penalty. Two weeks in, Brown leads the Eagles with a 30% target share, followed by Smith at 28%. But because Smith has the long completions and two TDs, he has been the Eagles fantasy WR1. But he’s not. AJB still ranks 1st on the team in expected fantasy points per game (15.4) through two games. Buy low if anybody is souring on him after a quiet Thursday night game.
Jaylen Waddle is in the concussion protocol, which would open targets up for others behind Tyreek Hill. Tight end Durham Smythe and WR Braxton Berrios would be the primary beneficiaries. Smythe played almost every snap for the second straight game and Berrios has averaged four targets to start the year.
Assuming everything checks out with Waddle’s health, he’s a buy-low target for me. He’s been overshadowed by Hill to start the year but is coming off an 86-yard performance on just four catches Sunday night. He only has four catches in each of the first two games but has averaged over 80 receiving yards per game. Averaging over 20 yards per reception. Just needs some TD luck, that could easily come in a BIG WAY if Patrick Surtain matches up with Hill versus Denver in Week 3.
It was a quiet game for Brandon Aiyuk (6 targets) but he took some shots and might have been playing through some pain. He only played 53% of the snaps. I’d buy low. He still was the leader in air yards (63%) and still ran a route on 77% of dropbacks. Doubled George Kittle‘s targets. Kittle remains a bust candidate as the clear-cut third option in the pecking order. 6 catches through two games.
And through two games in 2023, Aiyuk owns a 28% target share and is the leader in air yards. Samuel leads the team with a 31% target share.
