Buy Low Sell High: Week 3 Fantasy Football 2023

The draft and waiver wire are key to winning your fantasy football 2023 championships. But the ability to buy low and sell high is also a surefire way to take advantage of player’s highs and lows.

Last week I told you to get Michael Pittman Jr. and sell Garrett Wilson. Both those hit quite well, I did say to sell Kenneth Walker III, too, who had a strong performance against the Carolina Panthers. Let’s get to this week’s players.

Buy Low

Rhamondre Stevenson

Ezekiel Elliott‘s signing killed a lot of the hype around Rhamondre Stevenson going into this season. Let people overreact to it as they see Zeke outrushed Stevenson against the buzzsaw defensive line of the Jets. That doesn’t change how Stevenson nearly doubled Zeke’s snap count while running 22 routes to Zeke’s mere eight.

Stevenson remains the back who sees more carries, significantly more work in the passing game and, most importantly, red zone work. Through the first two weeks, Rhamondre has been the sole back in red zone situations and that did not change this week either. Furthermore, Stevenson had a drop in the rainy conditions and two miscommunications with Mac Jones Sunday, which led to his wavering receiving numbers this week.

Calvin Ridley

Ever since Calvin Ridley’s dominant Week 1 performance, he has put up middling numbers. Last week against a stout Kansas City defense, Ridley caught just two of his eight targets. This week he caught three of his seven targets.

In the past two games, however, Ridley saw multiple endzone targets that he either couldn’t corral or was being held by a defender. It doesn’t look pretty, but seeing what Ridley did in Week 1, we know he hasn’t lost it despite his nearly two-year hiatus from football. Couple that with the Jaguars having easier matchups on the horizon against the Falcons and Colts, and Ridley will bounce back, thus putting him on this week’s buy low, sell high list.

Sell High

Romeo Doubs

Romeo Doubs is (finally) fully healthy and showed out in the Packers’ incredible comeback against the Saints. Doubs led the team with 12 targets and put together 73 yards and a touchdown. Doubs is a shifty route runner who can beat guys deep. Unfortunately, that deep ball role will lessen given the return of Christian Watson, who garnered nearly 25 percent of the Packers’ air yards.

Combine that with a high ADOT (average depth of target) of 13.8 yards (8th highest in the NFL), Christian Watson not only fills that deep threat role but excels in it. Doubs will be playing second fiddle once Watson returns.

Jerome Ford

Jerome Ford was the hot pickup this week after Nick Chubb went down, and why not? He’s a talented second-year back out of Cincinnati who possesses elite speed. Even better: Ford backed it all up with a two-touchdown performance in Cleveland’s thrashing of the Titans.

Ford is a sell-high candidate for several reasons. First, Kareem Hunt was signed and was on a snap count this week, his usage will cut into Ford’s going forward. Second, this Browns offense has sputtered and been downright ugly at points, Ford won’t be falling into the end zone as often as this game showed. Finally, the Browns have tougher matchups ahead against the Ravens and the 49ers, two stout defensive fronts.

Trading this year in fantasy football 2023 can make or break your season. Suppose you can take advantage of when to buy low or sell high on a player. In that case, you’ll be giving yourself a significantly better advantage as the season progresses, ideally to a fantasy football championship.
