Trader's Alley Week 8: Buy Low, Sell High, and a Chart

Week 7 was a tough one for injuries, and that resulted in a lot of movement on the trade chart. It was great seeing DeAndre Hopkins and Gus Edwards back out on the field. Hopefully, they can help fill in some pieces you might have lost this week. We are halfway through the season and the trade deadline is rapidly approaching. Don't miss your chance to make some moves. I will also be co-hosting a trade Q+A live stream on the 4for4 YouTube channel on Wednesday at 6 PM EST. Don't miss it!

Just a reminder of 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.
