Welcome to Buy, Sell, Drop, Hold (BSDH)! This article will go over players who we as fantasy football fanatics should buy, sell, drop, and hold.
Buy (value rising)
Kenneth Walker III, Seahawks, RB41
Rookie Kenneth Walker III took over for an injured Rashad Penny in week five and made the best of his situation. The 2022 Doak Campbell award winner ripped off a 69-yard run and never looked back. He rushed for 88 yards and a touchdown in his first start. The Seahawks usually deploy a one-back system, so expect Walker to get all of the work. You should utilize the running back in the “SELL” portion of this article to trade for Walker.
Lamar Jackson, Ravens, QB2
This one seems a bit obvious. “No crap buy Lamar Jackson, he’s the QB2!” Yes, obviously, if you aren’t the Jackson owner you would be pretty happy to trade for him. However, in the last three weeks Jackson had put up QB18, QB12, and QB12 numbers, which probably isn’t winning anyone any weeks based on where they drafted him. So Jackson owners are most likely pretty upset. Blood is in the water. Now is the time to buy.
Sell (value lowering)
Chris Godwin, Buccaneers, WR56
This one will be a hard sell. Godwin is a good player who has put up a WR2 overall finish in the past. I am a believer of the “if they got there before, they can do it again” mindset. I just don’t think this is his year this year. His usage and production has been pretty disappointing even after he made his return from his off season knee rehab. Since his return, he has dealt with multiple injuries in different parts of his body. This combined with the overall lack of production from the Bucs makes Godwin a sell for me.
Najee Harris, Steelers, RB22
Najee Harris has been one of 2022’s bigger disappointments. He was likely drafted in the first round in many leagues. Players who have drafted the former Alabama running back were expecting top 3 production from Harris. Here he is, straddling the RB2/FLEX spot in your lineup. He was just featured in our “Sits of the Week” week 6 article. His QB situation is rough, and his O-line, frankly, sucks. But he is a talented player who gets fed the ball in Tomlin’s offense. He will have spike games every once in a while that will keep his price up. Sell after one of the spike games.
Drop (little to no value)
Robert Woods, Titans, WR65 (69% rostered)
Wide receiver Robert Woods was traded to the Titans this pass off season after a productive stint on the Rams where he had a number of low end WR1/WR2 finishes. His 2021 season was cut short due to an injury but he was averaging a decent 12.96 PPG. His best days are behind him it seems. Through five games, Woods has caught only 17 passes for 204 yards and one touchdown. It’s time to see the forest for the trees and cut Woods from your team.
Devin Duvernay, Ravens, WR31 (68% rostered)
Duvernay is putting up WR3 numbers so far in 2022, but it’s come in such unsustainable way that it will be hard to depend on him. Two of his touchdowns came from the same game and another came from a kick return. It seems like the Ravens are leaning more on Jackson’s legs and the rest of the run game. Bateman is also on his way back from injury, so that will decrease Duvernay’s production. Just drop him.
Kyler Murray, Cardinals, QB6
There is a lot of anxiety regarding Kyler Murray going forward. He lost his college buddy Hollywood Brown to a foot injury. The offensive play calling is bad. There are a lot of bad feelings in Arizona right now. But I consider Murray to be a hold for a couple of reasons. First, he is getting Deandre Hopkins back from suspension. Hopkins won’t likely produce immediately but he will certainly soften the blow of losing Brown. Second, the Cardinals traded for veteran wideout Robbie Anderson. Think what you will about Anderson, he is still a talented wide receiver. So because of these factors, Murray is a hold.
The Colts team as a whole has not met expectations on 2022. Their defense and special teams are ranked 20th. Despite this, I consider them a hold. They have an easy schedule coming up: TEN, WAS, NE, and LV. Their BYE isn’t until week 14 so you won’t have to worry about switching them out. They are a set it and forget it DST for the rest of season.
Curtis Samuel, Commanders, WR22
I wavered on this one. Curtis Samuel will be an easy drop for a lot of players who were burned by his week 6 performance. Taylor Heinicke sucks. The Commanders are not looking good. Despite this, he is still averaging 82.2% of snaps and is the Commanders target leader. I wouldn’t start him until he shows he can produce with Heinicke, but I wouldn’t drop him either.
