Immediate Fantasy Football Trades You Should Make Ahead of NFL Week 9
Eight weeks into the NFL season, we've got a pretty good idea of how things are shaking out this year. We have a lot more information to help us figure out which players' big games may have been flukes and which are signs of more big games to come in the future. On the other side of the coin, we also get a better idea of which disappointing players can still be counted on to bounce back and which ones fantasy owners should cut their losses on.
With those fantasy football buy-low and sell-high opportunities in mind, here are four fantasy football trades worth pursuing immediately as we look forward to Week 9 of the 2020 season.
Fantasy Football Buy-Low
Trade For Corey Davis, WR, Tennesse Titans: You'd laugh if somebody told you Corey Davis was the WR1 in the Tennessee Titans' offense, right? That reaction is exactly why it's time to go buy him. Since returning from injury in Week 7, Corey Davis has turned 20 targets into 14 receptions, 163 yards and 2 touchdowns. In those two games, Brown has just 10 receptions on 15 targets. Even if we go back to Week 1 (the only other game in which they both played), both saw 8 targets, with Davis catching 7 and Brown catching 5. Their fantasy value is a lot closer than people think.
Trade For Zack Moss, RB, Buffalo Bills: Zack Moss' production finally picked up, with 20.1 fantasy points in Week 8. Unaware owners may think that game is a bit of a fluke that gives them a sell-high opportunity, and you should take advantage of that. Moss finally played more snaps than Devin Singletary for the first time all season in Week 8, and taking over the RB1 role gives him huge upside for the remainder of the season. One more big game from Moss will likely close this buy-low window.
Trade Away A.J. Brown, WR, Tennessee Titans: Remember what you just read about Brown and Davis? Brown's health gave him a couple extra games, and he's scored 5 touchdowns in the last four weeks. Pairing that with the reputation he earned last season has kept his value nice and high, which makes him a perfect player to trade away.
Trade Away James Robinson, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars: With Gardner Minshew out, the Jacksonville Jaguars' offense is going to look different. First, they may end up becoming even more inefficient, as Minshew has been pretty good on that front (7.1 adjusted yards per pass attempt). The Jags' coaching staff has also said they're going to try to open up the offense more, which could mean fewer checkdowns. Both of those things could spell trouble for James Robinson, who has seen 6 touchdowns and 27 receptions bolster his fantasy value all season.
