The fantasy football trade deadline for most leagues is approaching this week, meaning this could be your last chance to make deals.

Fantasy Football Trade

Whether you're near the bottom of the standings looking to shake up your roster, or trying to make a postseason push, here are some buy-low and sell-high trade candidates ahead of Week 10.

Fantasy Football Buy Low Week 10

1. Terry McLaurin, WR, Washington Redskins

Terry McLaurin's production has really crashed following his early-season outburst, but that can be attributed to more than the QB situation in Washington. In the last three games, McLaurin has had to take on three opponents that rank top-nine in Football Outsiders' pass defense DVOA rankings. He averaged just three receptions for 29.7 yards per game with no TDs in that stretch, compared to 4.6 receptions, 81.6 yards and 1.0 TD per game in the first five. His schedule opens up significantly moving forward, with four of his next six opponents allowing top-12 fantasy production to opposing wideouts.

2. Le'Veon Bell, RB, New York Jets

Le'Veon Bell's 22.0 opportunities (15.6 carries plus 6.4 targets) per game rank seventh in the NFL this season, but he stacks up as just the RB17, with 17.4 PPR fantasy points per game. Efficiency is a concern with the entire New York Jets' offense struggling, but he should get a boost on that front with the Jets having a favorable late-season schedule. Each of their next five opponents are allowing above-average PPR fantasy production to opposing RBs, including two that allow top-five numbers.

3. T.Y. Hilton, WR, Indianapolis Colts

If you're safely on-track to make the fantasy playoffs, you can afford to take advantage of your situation and stash T.Y. Hilton. He's expected to miss another couple of weeks, and with six NFL teams on bye and most fantasy squads still fighting for playoff spots, owners may not have the room to keep him on their bench. He's the WR14 with 16.3 PPR points per game, and an injury discount can help you shore up your WR position when he returns, likely in time for the fantasy playoffs.

4. Amari Cooper, WR, Dallas Cowboys

Amari Cooper is coming off of back-to-back strong games, with 106 yards in Week 7 and 80 yards with a TD in Week 9. Volume continues to be a concern for him though, as he saw 12 combined targets in those games. He's only had double-digit looks once in seven full games, averaging 7.9 per game in that sample. In five full games played alongside Michael Gallup, Cooper has seen 40 targets to Gallup's 39. That's not terrible volume, but it's also not the kind of workload that is likely to keep him ranked as a top-six WR for the remainder of the year, and that makes him a solid sell-high option while there are more reliable top fantasy options he could be exchanged for.
