Trader's Alley Week 7: Buy Low, Sell High, and a Chart

Week 6 is in the books and this season is absolutely flying by! It is that time of year to check your league settings for the trade deadline. Each platform has a different week and commissioners can move them too. So, it is important to know when to make the final push. Many of my leagues have trading open until week 11. Plan accordingly.

Some default deadlines:

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

Make sure to check YOUR league.

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.
