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

Buy Low Sell High Fantasy Football

Whether you're looking to shore up your roster to make a late-season push for the playoffs or trying to solidify yourself as a legitimate championship contender, here are some buy-low and sell-high trade candidates ahead of Week 11.

Trade Targets Fantasy Football

1. Buy Low: Chris Godwin, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Chris Godwin is averaging 5.7 receptions and 59.3 yards per game across three contests since the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' bye in Week 7, and while those are fine averages, scoring zero TDs in that time has his production sitting quite low by the standards he set earlier this year. His volume isn't down any in those three weeks either, averaging 9.7 targets per game (compared to 9.0 before the bye week), positioning him perfectly to bounce back with some more big games.

2. Buy Low: Devin Singletary, RB, Buffalo Bills

Devin Singletary had a big game in Week 9, but his production dropped off last week, potentially opening a buy-low window for the rookie. His rushing volume has been nothing special, only hitting double-digit carries once, but he has averaged 5.8 targets per game in his four full, healthy games. His rushing volume also looks to be trending up, with 28 carries in the last two weeks (versus 20 in his first four games). This receiving volume makes him especially valuable in PPR leagues, but he is showing the potential to develop into an every-down workhorse, which gives him serious upside down the stretch.

3. Buy Low: DJ Chark, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars

Another guy whose production hasn't matched his volume lately, DJ Chark has only topped 12 PPR fantasy points in one of his last four games. He's still dominated the volume available in the Jacksonville Jaguars' offense during that time though, accounting for 29 percent of the targets and 31 percent of the air yards (both team-high marks). He scored five touchdowns and averaged 13.1 yards per target across his first five games of the season, and while that efficiency may not be a realistic expectation down the stretch, it is a good sign that we can expect some improvement over his 6.5 yards per target and one total TD across the last four games.

4. Sell High: Kenny Golladay, WR, Detroit Lions

Over the last four weeks, Kenny Golladay ranks sixth among all wide receivers with 71.3 PPR fantasy points. He doesn't have nearly enough volume to back that up in the long run, though. His 26 targets in that time are at least eight fewer than anyone else in the top 8 at the position, and he's accounted for just 16 percent of the Detroit Lions' targets in those games. Scoring four touchdowns has hidden the lack of volume, but averaging just 6.5 targets per game is likely to catch up with him at some point. It's best to sell now, before his production starts to reflect the volume concerns.
