Fantasy Football: Buy And Sell Week 11
The NFL season is heading into Week 10.
At this point, there has been more than enough football played to see who is legit this season and to see who is a fraud. Let’s take a look at some buy and sell options to make late season-playoff pushes:
Najee Harris, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers
There is no doubt that Najee Harris is a very talented young running back. However, his performance thus far this year has not been impressive.
There are two big problems with Harris. The first problem is the Steelers are just not a good football team. The offensive numbers for everyone on that offense is down and that means that they are not scoring enough points to hold fantasy value.
The second issue is Harris is not 100% healthy. There have been lingering injuries in his feet that he has been playing through and that may be slowing down the young back.
Kyle Pitts, TE, Atlanta Falcons
Kyle Pitts was projected to be a top-three tight end in fantasy football this season. However, that has been far from reality.
Pitts has not found his rhythm whatsoever this year. The tight end position isn’t deep so Pitts still has value. Sell Pitts for anything valuable at this point. He won’t be a top-three tight end this year because his situation with Marcus Mariota at quarterback is not ideal.
Kenneth Walker III, RB, Seattle Seahawks
Kenneth Walker will win leagues for people.
Walker has taken over the Seahawks backfield since Rashaad Penny went down for the season with an injury. Since he has taken over the running back job, he has been a touchdown machine, racking up seven touchdowns over five games.
Walker has been getting fed with 20 touches in each of the last four games and has been one of the most pleasant surprises in football this year. He will continue to dominate week in and week out - go trade for this man if you can!
Tony Pollard, RB, Dallas Cowboys
Tony Pollard is one of the more interesting players in fantasy terms.
Pollard shares the Cowboys backfield with Ezekiel Elliott but it’s clear to see that this season that Pollard has been more productive with the football. Elliott is dealing with injuries now and Pollard seems to be 100% healthy.
When Elliott is out, Pollard is a monster. He instantly turns into a top-five back with Elliot sidelined.
Pollard is risky because with Elliott active, he gets half of his touches removed. But if Elliott gets hurt one more time, it will be the Tony Pollard show in Dallas.
Even with Elliott, Pollard has been productive enough to warrant a start at the flex position. So get Pollard on your team because of the crazy upside he holds with the talent he has just hidden behind Elliott.
