5 Immediate Trades to Make in Fantasy Football Week 10
Heading into Week 10 of the fantasy football season, managers have solid grasp on their rosters and which holes need to be filled. Exploring trades is one way to improve your lineup, either by buying low on someone underperforming or selling high in order to bolster your depth.
Week 10 also brings a bye for four different franchises. Bye weeks can create a tricky roster construct for managers and may be the best opportunity to take advantage of a buy-low situation.
With that in mind, here are three players to trade for (and two to trade away) in Week 10.
Fantasy Football Week 10 Trades
1. Trade For: James Robinson, RB, New York Jets
James Robinson tripled his workload in his second game with the New York Jets, going from 5 touches to 15. He upped his rushing attempts to 13 and fully split time with Michael Carter against the Buffalo Bills despite dealing with a knee injury. Carter played 52% of the snaps compared to Robinson's 40%, but Robinson out-touched the former 15-13. The Jets clearly don't think Carter is an every-down back, otherwise they wouldn't have drafted Breece Hall after Carter's impressive rookie campaign. Meanwhile, Robinson already has two seasons as a proven RB1 under his belt and is trending in the right direction now that he's on a better team.
2. Trade Away: Raheem Mostert, RB, Miami Dolphins
Mike McDaniel and the Miami Dolphins were not shy about their future plans with Jeff Wilson. In his first game with the team, Wilson played 49% of the offensive snaps and split carries with incumbent starter Raheem Mostert. Wilson was nearly twice as efficient at 5.7 yards per attempt compared to Mostert's 2.9 yards per carry. On the season, Wilson ranks just one spot ahead of Mostert in terms of PPR scoring, but this is Wilson's backfield now. Mostert was a nice story to start the year after getting pushed out of the San Francisco 49ers' backfield, but his former teammate just stole his job.
3. Trade For: Dalton Schultz, TE, Dallas Cowboys
Dak Prescott's return from the IR has brought a new life back to tight end Dalton Schultz's fantasy value. In three games with Prescott under center this year, Schultz has averaged 7 targets, 6 receptions and 61.7 yards per game. Prescott clearly values Schultz as one of his favorite options. giving him 26.9% of the target share in Week 8. Schultz returns as a legitimate TE1 in fantasy leagues as long as Prescott stays healthy.
4. Trade Away: Leonard Fournette, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Forunette found his name on this list week, but he deserves a spot once again. If you haven't traded away the Buccaneers running back yet, please do so now. He's now finished with fewer than 25 rushing yards and 10 attempts in three straight games. That's not entirely his fault as Tampa Bay's offensive line has struggled with run blocking all year, but he could be wearing down after carrying a heavy workload to start the season (95 rushing attempts through Week 6). He's struggled with his efficiency all year long, however, and has started losing carries to rookie Rachaad White.
5. Trade For: Drake London, WR, Atlanta Falcons
Drake London had a dismal 3.3 PPR points in Week 9, one of the worst fantasy performances of his young career so far. He's been quiet the last few weeks but is still the clear-cut No. 1 receiver on Atlanta's roster, making this a good buy-low window for him. He leads the team with 56 targets (28.7% target share), 33 receptions and 369 receiving yards. No other wide receiver on the roster threatens London's target share and hopefully Cordarrelle Patterson's return can open up some more lanes for the rookie wideout.
