The Playoffs – Fantasy Football 2022: week 11 swap targets » The Playoffs

Ladies and gentlemen virtual GMs, we only have this and the next week to make trades in fantasy football – at least in the vast majority of leagues, where the deadline is in week 12.

Therefore, there is no more time to lose and some factors become fundamental, depending on your situation at the moment: whether you are well on your way to the playoffs or still fighting for survival in the fight for the last of the last spots.

In the latter case, immediacy prevails, so mini sacrifices are necessary, such as, for example, having a slight downgrade in the projections of one or more players if this means getting rid of athletes who are currently injured, not yet 100% physically or who still have the rest to complete, either in this 11th round, in week 13 or in the “byepocalypse, part 2” of week 14 (part 1 took place in week 7).

That’s when GMs with 7 or more wins in 10 games should be alert, to try to incorporate such players and improve the level of the squad, mainly the starting lineup, aiming at the time when the matches matter most: in the “post-season of the fantasy”, which happens, as a rule, between weeks 15 and 17. But that’s not all: those who are already well on their way to the playoffs can now start analyzing the sequence of opponents of the team’s main players in these last three rounds, in order to avoid complicated matchups, which can be achieved via negotiations by athletes of equivalent or similar level with less attentive GMs.

Addressing these factors, in addition to the now traditional recent retrospective of each player, the The Playoffs appears once again to introduce the names for “buy low” and “sell high” heading into Week 11 of the NFL and fantasy football.

Running Backs to “Buy Low”:

Travis Etienne (JAX)

After a strong three-game streak scoring touchdowns and surpassing 100 rushing yards, “ETN” was contained by the gamescript that forced the Jaguars to pass the ball a lot against the Chiefs. Now he enters a bye week before returning to the fields in week 12, with full chances to continue playing as a high-volume RB1 for fantasy, including a favorable duel against Houston in the 17th round, also known as the fantasy football final. Perfect opportunity for anyone with a positive campaign to look for the GM who has the second-year player on the roster, needs immediate wins and can’t wait for the break he is currently in.

Miles Sanders (PHI)

One of the main victims of the unexpected script of the game that represented the first and only defeat of the Eagles in the year, against the rivals of division based in Washington, the number 26 broke the good sequence, of the last three games, of at least 70 terrestrial yards and a trip to the end zone. So there is a chance to acquire a reliable RB2 before it produces good numbers again.

Other RBs for “buying low”: Christian McCaffrey (SF), Alvin Kamara (NO), Derrick Henry (TEN), Cordarelle Patterson (ATL), David Montgomery (CHI)

Running Backs to “sell high”:

Dalvin Cook (MIN)

Even if he is a top 10 RB from here until the end of the year, the number 4 has been very dependent on big plays to maintain this condition and trusting that they are repeated for all games is something that defies statistical probabilities, causing, once absent, Cook becomes reliant on touchdowns to reach double-digit fantasy scoring, as was even the case in Week 8 against the Commanders. With this, it is advisable to use the brand of the name and this last performance to try to involve Cook in a negotiation that brings to his cast a runner from the very first shelf of the position.

Raheem Mostert (MIA)

The change in prominence in the backfield of one of the best attacks in the league is increasingly consolidated. Newcomer Jeff Wilson establishes himself as the Dolphins’ RB1, leaving veteran Mostert with fewer opportunities to touch the ball. So, even recognizing the difficulty that the bye this week 11 imposes, try to take advantage of the last performance, which, even as RB2, included a TD in the number 31’s account, continuing the good scores that he had before Wilson’s arrival in Miami, to try to transform him into someone with a more consistent role in the offensive unit in which he operates.

Other RBs to “sell high”: D’Onta Foreman (CAR), Antonio Gibson (WAS), Brian Robinson (WAS)

Wide Receivers for “buying low”:

Ja’Marr Chase (CIN)

The madman is about to return, which could even happen this week 11, which marks the return of the Bengals after the break in the 10th round. With a favorable calendar, especially in these more immediate rounds, the chances that “Uno” will reach the very high ceiling that he has increase, even if it is recognized that his floor – lower than most first-rate receivers have – may appear, due to the fact that he is coming back from injury. It is also for this reason that teams better on their way to the fantasy playoffs are advised to switch to him, as it is believed that he will be 100% physically recovered by week 14 or 15.

JuJu Smith-Schuster (KC)

This one who writes to you is forced to give his arm to twist in relation to the Chiefs’ number 9 shirt, which, until the moment he suffered the concussion that sidelined him right at the beginning of the game against the Jaguars last weekend, had engaged, since week 6, a pretty solid run of performances, on his way to becoming a reliable target for Patrick Mahomes and a very safe WR2 in PPR leagues. Thus, the advice is to consult the GM who has him in the roster, especially if he cannot wait for the return of the “tiktoker”, who, due to the aforementioned head injury, tends to miss a game or two.

Other WRs for “Buy Low”: AJ Brown (PHI), Chris Olave (NO), Mike Williams (LAC), Diontae Johnson (PIT)

Wide Receivers to “sell high”:

CeeDee Lamb (DAL)

Making the concept of regression to the average appear in the last game against the Packers, the number 88, owner of a great volume of targets throughout the season, ended the drought of touchdowns with which he had been living and, having found the end zone twice, he ended up among the leaders of his fantasy position in week 10. It turns out that this inconsistency of TDs tends to continue, even more so if Lamb’s air volume undergoes any changes with the speculated arrival of Odell Beckham Jr to Dallas in the final stretch of the season regular, exactly during the fantasy playoffs. So, maybe it’s a good time to send the third year on a trade that guarantees him an elite WR with less doubts in his scenario.

Gabe Davis (BUF)

It’s already been talked about a lot in the fantasy football columns here at The Playoffs how “boom” or “bust” is the Bills’ #13 jersey. With this inconsistency possibly intensified due to the physical issue of his quarterback – remembering that Josh Allen is currently living with an elbow injury –, especially since he should not be forced to pass the ball in proportion (above average even by Bills standards) What happened in the surreal duel against the Vikings, there is a chance to take advantage of the 93 yards and 1 TD added by Davis in this last game to try to get someone with more stability, like a Tee Higgins, for example.

Other WRs for “selling high”Rondale Moore (ARI), Christian Watson (GB)

Tight Ends for “buying low”:

Mark Andrews (BAL)

After an absurd start to the season, the number 89 has been dealing with injuries in recent weeks, which have kept him from the top of the statistical rankings and even caused him to be out of action from the start of an NFL match for the first time in his career. However, since Thursday Night Football in week 9, the last opportunity he was on the field, Andrews had approximately three weeks to recover physically, also taking into account the bye week in Baltimore that has just passed. So it’s time to take one last chance to acquire the only tight end capable of rivaling Travis Kelce for TE1 status in our game-within-the-game.

Other TEs for “buying low”: Pat Freiermuth (PIT), Gerald Everett (LAC)

Tight Ends to “sell high”:

Cole Kmet (CHI)

After having scored four touchdowns in two games – 2 TDs in each –, Kmet emerges as one of the hottest tight ends of the moment, benefiting from the eruption of his quarterback Justin Fields. It turns out that the aerial volume of Chicago’s attack, despite having improved compared to the poor numbers of the first rounds of 2022, is still quite low, representing something unsustainable for the number 85 to maintain similar performances to the last two, especially in terms of range. from the end zone. Therefore, also taking into account that the Bears are off in week 14, here’s the tip to try to take advantage of the moment of intense increase in the quotation of the third year.

Other TEs for “selling high”: Juwan Johson (NO), Dawson Knox (BUF)

Quarterbacks for “buying low”:

Justin Herbert (LAC)

Quite disappointing so far, Herbert has the prospect of getting at least one of his two main weapons (Mike Williams and Keenan Allen) back for next Sunday Night Football’s all-important divisional showdown against the Chiefs. Hoping that, from this statistically very inviting duel, he will be able to engage in a better sequence of performances, especially since the game schedule is favorable to this, it will hardly be possible to speculate on the addition of such a talented QB at such a low moment as the current.

Other QBs to “Buy Low”: Josh Allen (BUF), Lamar Jackson (BAL)

Quarterbacks to “sell high”:

Dak Prescott (DAL)

On average, a low QB1 for our game – largely due to the influence of Dallas’ defense, which does not usually require the attack to take many risks –, Dak tends to struggle to repeat the same score he achieved in the defeat against Green Bay in week 10 Also considering his difficult fantasy playoff schedule, which includes duels against the grimy defenses of Philadelphia and Tennessee in the final weeks of numbers 16 and 17, it is advisable to look to involve the number 4 shirt in an advantageous deal.

Other QBs to “sell high”: Aaron Rodgers (GB), Trevor Lawrence (JAX), Matt Ryan (ATL)
