Trader's Alley Week 9: Buy Low, Sell High, and a Chart

Week 8 is in the books and we are on to Week 9 of the NFL season! There was a lot more NFL trade deadline movement than normal, and that shook up the fantasy trade market. The tight end position is still a dumpster fire and we keep getting hit with wide receiver injuries. Take a look at the 2-6, or 3-5 teams that are trying to make a push for the playoffs. In my experience, they are the most willing to make a trade to attempt to turn their season around.

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.
