This is Buy Sell Drop Hold Fantasy Football! This article is about which players we as fantasy football degenerates should buy, sell, drop, and hold!
Evan Engram, TE, Jaguars
Evan Engram is a player that may not be too hard to acquire from someone else. He may even be on your waiver wire. It doesn’t matter where he is now, what matters is that he needs to be on your team ASAP. He has just come off of a four catch, 55 yard, one touchdown performance. He will be facing the Raiders, the Chiefs, the Ravens, and the Lions over the next five weeks, all of which are plus match ups. If you don’t have Andrews or Kelce, each week at tight end is a crap shoot anyways, so might as well take a shot on the guy with the easy schedule
Raheem Mostert, RB, Dolphins
The Dolphins’ Raheem Mostert is one of the league’s most unique players. He is own extremely fast, injury prone, former special teams player who broke out in his 5th year. The Dolphins just traded for Jeff Wilson right before the trade deadline, so at first he doesn’t seem like a buy now. This actually helps his long term value due to his injury history. He is the type of player that only needs a handful of touches to be effective; his speed allows a big play on any play. By mixing Jeff Wilson in, the Dolphins limit Mostert’s chances at getting injured while providing a player that can help sustain drives longer while Raheem takes a breather.
Calvin Ridley, WR, Jaguars
This one is for our dynasty fantasy football players. Ridley was a rising star for the Falcons until he took time off to fix his mental health and then got suspended for betting. His dynasty value was an all time and people found it hard to trade him for any type of value. This trade will jolt a little life back into his value, since this trade indicates that teams are still very interested in getting him back onto the field. Try to find the team that is tanking this year to see if they are interested in a long term asset.
Kyle Pitts, TE, Falcons
If you were dumb enough to listen to me last week, you would have dropped Pitts. For those of you with a brain, maybe this is a good time to sell Pitts after his week 8 performance. He put together his best game of the year against the Panthers. It’s all a mirage, however. Marcus Mariotta’s week 8 performance was his peak performance of the year. This was his first time completing 20 or more passes since week one. Pitts nor Mariotta will replicate their success against the Chargers.
Garrett Wilson, WR, Jets
The Jets’ Garrett Wilson had a great game against the Patriots in week 8, catching six out of seven passes for 115 yards. Despite his performance, he is a sell. This was the first time he caught six or more passes since week 3. Over the next three weeks, Wilson will have a tough string of games, facing off against the Bills, then a bye week, and then going up against the Patriots again. If your league has a Jets fan, you could probably exploit their excitement that one of their players had a great game against New England.
Derek Carr, QB, Raiders (80% Owned)
Some one needs to go check on the Raiders. Derek Carr has not been good this year. Carr just had one of his worst games in his career against a defense that was missing its top defensive back. He only has a couple of good matchups in the upcoming weeks (Jacksonville and Seattle). His other games are the Colts, Broncos, Chargers, and Rams. He’s better off just sitting on someone else’s bench.
Chris Olave, WR, Saints
Chris Olave was a victim of circumstance this last weekend. The Saints followed the path of least resistance and leaned on Kamara to lead the way to victory. Olave is still a very large part of the Saints offense and is a great rookie receiver and should continue to see his production return to normal next week against the Ravens.
