Fantasy Football Week 12: Trader's Alley: Buy Low, Sell High, and a Chart

Trader's Alley Week 12: Buy Low, Sell High, and a Chart

A large portion of fantasy leagues are past their trade deadline, but we will keep running through Week 13 to try and help those remaining! Darrell Henderson and Melvin Gordon being waived by their teams caused some movement at the bottom of the chart. We lost another tight end in Kyle Pitts last week and that landscape is looking bleak. Let's get into the Week 12 trade for, aways, and a hold.

Just a reminder of some default deadlines:

  • ESPN - Week 13 ( November 30th)
  • Sleeper - Week 9 to 13 (Commissioner preference)
  • Yahoo - Week 11 (Nov 19th)
  • CBS - Week 11 (Nov 19th)

Let's get to it!

Methods

My goal in building a model in 2017 was to quantify each position (wide receiver, tight end, quarterback) in terms of the running back position. I view running backs as the backbone of a fantasy football team. I regularly calibrate my model by scrapping public data for 1-for-1 positional trades to adjust my relationships up or down. This also helps me account for injuries increasing scarcity and shifts in offenses. I built a model that then uses expert ranks as an input or seed file to generate these graphics.
