We're through 10 weeks of the fantasy football season, meaning the trade deadline in most leagues is fast approaching. This is likely the final week to send out trade offers and make deals to solidify your team down the stretch and into the fantasy football playoffs.

Fantasy Football Buy Low Sell High

Whether you're looking to add to a team at the top of the standings or you're just fighting to improve enough to make the playoffs, here are two players you should be looking to acquire (buy low) and two players you might want to trade away (sell high) in fantasy football ahead of Week 11.

Week 11 Fantasy Football Trades

1. Trade For: Damien Williams, RB, Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs' backfield has been a mess when it comes to fantasy purposes this season, but we're finally starting to get some clarity. Damien Williams is back and fully healthy, and LeSean McCoy was a healthy scratch in Week 10. Williams has tallied 31 carries and seven receptions over the last two games, playing 73 percent of the Chiefs' offensive snaps in each contest. With Patrick Mahomes back at the helm, Williams is poised to end the season with a bang as the clear-cut lead back in an elite offense.

2. Trade For: Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Cleveland Browns

Like most of the Cleveland Browns, Odell Beckham Jr. has had a disappointing 2019 season. He hasn't eclipsed 100 yards or scored a touchdown in any of his last three games, and has hit one of those marks only twice in nine games on the year. His volume has continued to be solid though, and he just saw a season-high 12 targets in Week 10. OBJ has caught at least five passes in four straight games, averaging 9.0 targets during that stretch, and that workload means he will continue to offer strong upside on a weekly basis. He also draws some great matchups over the next few weeks, taking on the Miami Dolphins in Week 12 and Cincinnati Bengals in Week 14.

Fantasy Football Trade Values

3. Trade Away: Aaron Jones, RB, Green Bay Packers

Aaron Jones is having a terrific fantasy season, ranking third among RBs with 21.1 PPR points per game. However, that production isn't likely to be sustainable, as it's coming on the back of 14 total touchdowns. Just looking at his rushing stats, Jones is averaging 0.93 fantasy points per carry, which is the most for any of the top-50 fantasy backs. Yes, it's encouraging that he's been efficient, but TDs are a highly volatile stat, and without the volume to back it up (11.5 carries and 3.5 targets per game over the last four) you're best served trying to sell high on Jones.

4. Trade Away: Kenny Golladay, WR, Detroit Lions

Kenny Golladay is another player scoring touchdowns at a seemingly unsustainable rate – four TDs in the last four games. Those scores have helped hide the fact that he's averaged only 3.5 receptions on 6.5 targets per game during that span. Matthew Stafford's back injury leaves the status of this entire offense relatively uncertain moving forward, and pairing that with decreasing volume makes Golladay someone you won't want to rely on down the stretch. But his recent touchdown numbers should also mean you can still fetch a solid return in a trade involving the Lions' wideout.
