Heading into Week 11 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 11 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 11.

Fantasy Football Week 11 Trades

1. Trade For: Joshua Palmer, WR, Los Angeles Chargers

A staunch San Francisco 49ers defense stifled Joshua Palmer in Week 10. The second-year pro caught just 3-of-8 targets for 44 yards and finished as WR58 in PPR formats. There's still big question marks surrounding the health of Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, and until they both return in full strength, Palmer commands a 15.4% of the target share. He's played at least 87% of the snaps dating back three weeks while averaging 10 targets per game in that span.

2. Trade Away: Najee Harris, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers

Najee Harris may have handled his heaviest rushing workload of the season in Week 10 (20 carries for 99 yards), but he played in just 60% of the offensive snaps (third-lowest mark of the year). Meanwhile, Jaylen Warren posted a 43% snap share, the second-highest mark of his season. Warren continues to eat into this time share. He out-targeted Harris, 3-1, and is just 12 off his pace for the year. While the 99 rushing yards is attractive, not hauling in a single reception taints RBs values in PPR leagues. Harris sees his ceiling crater as the year moves on.

3. Trade For: Darnell Mooney, WR, Chicago Bears

Darnell Mooney failed to find the end zone in Week 10, and his fantasy value crashed to WR45 as a result. He still went a perfect 4-for-4 on targets and tallied 57 receiving yards. The clear-cut No. 1 wideout on Chicago's roster, Mooney holds a very safe floor thanks to his 28% target share. The Atlanta Falcons rank just 29th in Football Outsiders' pass-defense DVOA metric, so that target share could prove fruitful in Week 11.

4. Trade Away: Devin Singletary, RB, Buffalo Bills

Devin Singletary notched his first TD of the year in Week 10. Actually, he did it twice and that makes this the perfect time to sell-high. This Bills backfield continues to offer zero legitimate takeaways, other than the fact that none of these RBs excite me from a fantasy perspective. Nyheim Hines cut into Singletary's target share while the offense featured three different running backs tally multiple rushing attempts. Singletary is still the featured option, but there's too many playmakers getting involved to give him a stable floor.

5. Trade For: Kadarius Toney, WR, Kansas City Chiefs

Toney is the buzzy name in fantasy week, but for good reason. He already found himself on our list of waiver wire targets. If he happens to be rostered in your fantasy league, consider a trade. Toney's value will only continue to build after a breakout performance in Week 10. Toney caught 4-of-5 targets for 57 yards and 1 TD, adding another 33 rushing yards on a pair of attempts. That was good enough for a WR13 performance in PPR leagues. Patrick Mahomes, alone, raises the bar on Toney's fantasy ceiling and managers need to get him on the roster now, or it will be too late.
