Buy Low Sell High Players In 2022 Fantasy Football Week 2
Week two is in the books and we saw some explosive performances. From the wild Ravens Dolphins game to rookies making big plays, there are many opportunities to buy low sell high on in fantasy football. Looking back on last week’s picks, we hit on Aaron Jones after a great day as well as Terry McLaurin after another so-so finish. I will have to eat crow on Amon-Ra St. Brown, he does appear to remain a target hog for Jared Goff.
Christian McCaffrey may seem like a lofty player to target in trades, but I guarantee you the CMC owner in your league is having second thoughts. Two 14-point half-ppr finishes in a row is not something we expect from the former fantasy football beast. The Panthers did not feature him the ball as much in the passing game, but I know that he is just too talented for Carolina not to give him the ball in space. Send a package deal from the plays below on the buy low sell high list and see if you can get the McCaffrey owner to bite.
I am hesitant to put Marquise Brown on this buy low sell high list because the Arizona Cardinals look ugly. Their offense is beyond inconsistent and Kyler Murray’s play features hot and cold streaks. To be honest, I am unsure if Kliff Kingsbury can keep his job throughout the whole season. But Hollywood Brown is a great talent at the receiver position, and he was a couple of yards and plays away from finishing with over 100 yards and a touchdown in week 2. So send out a flier for Hollywood, but don’t offer too much. Putting Marquise Brown on this week’s list is solely off of his upside, with a chance to remain a middling 2022 fantasy football option.
The Saints and Buccaneers were in a stalemate matchup featuring elite defensive play. Conversely, Chris Olave mustered just 80 yards on five targets. What doesn’t show up on the stat sheet is Chris Olave’s ridiculous air yards. Per PFF, Olave had a ridiculous 365 air yards. Simply, Jameis likes to air it out to him. And considering this was Olave’s second NFL game, their chemistry will only get better and they will be connecting on those deep balls more and more.
Jerry Jeudy left this game in the first quarter, thus Courtland Sutton became Russell Wilson’s go-to guy targeting him 11 times. And Sutton produced with those opportunities, garnering 127 yards on 7 catches. But I think this is fool’s gold. Even if Jerry Jeudy does miss some time, the Broncos’ offense is not what we expected. Russell Wilson has struggled to push the ball downfield. Against a mediocre Houston Texans defense, Wilson finished with an abysmal completion percentage of 45% from Pro Football Reference. I’d try to move Sutton in a buy low sell high deal now after a solid performance against a porous defense.
Hear me out on this one. Jaylen Waddle is an incredible talent. As a player, he is all the Dolphins could have wanted and then some when they drafted him sixth overall in the draft. Waddle had an absurd day, finishing with 171 yards and two touchdowns on 11 catches. But this Raven Dolphins shootout couldn’t have been more perfect of a situation or gamescript. The Dolphins were down early and this one, therefore abandoning the run game. Tyreek Hill missed a portion of the game due to cramps. Once Hill was feeling better, he got two deep touchdowns. Tyreek Hill is the better receiver and will remain as Tua Tagovailoa’s go-to guy. I am saying to only sell Jaylen Waddle for an absolute haul, but his value will only diminish from here.
Mike Williams is the ultimate boom or bust player. Nothing more to it. The injury to Keenan Allen ensured Justin Herbert would pepper him with targets against the Chiefs. Going from two targets to ten in consecutive weeks proves as much. Knowing that Mike Williams can win but also lose any given week in fantasy football is not something I want. Keenan Allen is still the receiver to own for the Chargers and that won’t change despite his current injury. If you can move Williams in a package deal with another running back to acquire a Najee Harris, for example, do it now.
Trading in fantasy football can make or break your season. Suppose you can take advantage of when to buy low sell high on a player. In that case, you’ll be giving yourself a significantly better advantage as the season goes on, ideally to a 2022 fantasy football championship.
