I will keep it brief this week and remind you that the trade deadline for most leagues is this Saturday. With that in mind, I urge you to take a good look at your team as well as the the other teams in your league and be aggressive.
And by that, I mean work the phones, text, e-mail… do whatever you have to do to improve your squad. Find other teams who are willing to trade and exploit their weaknesses. If you know that they really wanted to pick up Josh Gordon but you got him first, trade him away for a player you can start immediately and leave the volatile promise of Gordon’s talent to someone else, and have them worry about it. Here are 7 trade tips everyone needs to know
Whatever you do, do not miss an opportunity to give your team the best chance to win in the long run. Fantasy football is about risk taking and going with your gut. You will need both to be the best when the last whistle blows. Now for the list…
Week 10 Start ’em
Marvin Jones Jr. – Det WR
Jones has been under the radar a bit having a quietly strong fantasy season. After his Week 9 performance against the Packers, it’s safe to say the secret is out. Jones exploded for 2 TD’s and crossed the 100 yard milestone for the second straight week.
He has been doing this with Golden Tate healthy, so this tells me he is benefiting from the secondary’s attention shifted back to Tate. This week he faces an underrated Browns secondary at home and should continue to see double digit targets and get opportunities for deep ball plays. Start him with confidence this week and pencil him in as a solid WR2/borderline WR1 for the rest of the season.

Week 10 Sit ’em
Will Fuller – Hou WR
Fuller was hands down the surprise wide receiver pick up of the year, scoring an unprecedented 7 TD’s on only 13 receptions. These numbers were likely unsustainable with Deshaun Watson as his QB, and now that Tom Savage is behind center his production unsurprisingly plummeted in Week 9.
If you were one of the many owners who did not sell high on Fuller, this week will be another reminder of that mistake. The Texans offense faces a tough Rams secondary that ranks 9th in the league against the pass and should prove to limit his big play production. Fade Fuller this week and likely for the rest of the season as long as Tom Savage is throwing passes.
