Week 2 is over and if you thought people were freaking out last week, you haven’t seen anything yet. I actually got a text from my friend who started 0-2 that read “I’m dying to make a move.” This post is here to outline how we can take advantage of these desperate souls looking for purpose on what could potentially be a lost fantasy season. We will highlight our sell-high candidates that might help you land a guy who’s under performed through 2 weeks. Last week on our sell high post, I recommended selling high on Ryan Mathews, Demarco Murray and LeGarrette Blount. I’m sticking to that and believe they have even more value after last week, but don’t believe they will keep it up all season.
Here are my sell-high opportunities following Week 2:
Matt Ryan: Matty Ice currently the highest scoring QB in fantasy football. Move this guy IMMEDIATELY. Looking back at the last three years, Ryan finished as the QB19 in 2015, the QB7 in 2014, and the QB14 in 2013. It’s always tough to trade a guy who’s currently ranked 1st at their position, but it’s too good to be true with Matt Ryan. With guys like Kirk Cousins, Blake Bortles, and Russell Wilson all under performing, you might be able to find a sucker in your league.
Jeremy Langford: This is going to be a situation where you have to hope the other manager didn’t watch Monday Night Football. Langford is averaging just 3.03 yards per carry and has been saved by a couple of short TD runs. Jordan Howard certainly passed the eye test and looked explosive, once he got his chance — after second stringer Ka’Deem Carey went down with a hamstring injury. If Langford continues to struggle, he will lose touches to Howard.
Mike Wallace: Mike “Journeyman” Wallace is on his 4th team in 5 years and is seeing some success with Joe Flacco tossing him the rock. I’m here to tell you, don’t be fooled as his numbers are inflated right now with high touchdown output. 3 of his 7 touches have gone for TD and he is only seeing 6 targets per game. I think Wallace has value, but if you can command a high return, it’s worth moving Wallace to get a more consistent receiver.
Good luck this week!
