Trader's Alley Week 2: Players to Buy, Hold, and Sell

Trading can be quite a frustrating task in fantasy football. It is seemingly impossible to put together an offer that makes both sides happy, and communicating with other league members can also be difficult. In the Trader’s Alley, I’m going to try and guide you through making trades in your league this season. Using 4for4’s powerful trade evaluator tool, I’ll highlight players to buy, sell, and hold each week, and also create some hypothetical trades based on what the tool tells us.

This article will assume the following starting roster settings: 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 FLEX. Feel free to change the configurations to fit your league in the trade evaluator yourself. One overarching piece of advice after Week 1 is to not overreact, as it is hard to definitively take away anything from just a one-game sample size. So, I advise fantasy managers to stay calm if one of their stars had a bad week. However, the opposite can also be true—there could be a player that puts up great numbers in Week 1, but the performance is fluky and you should cut bait on them for a better-than-expected return (this is widely referred to as the Sammy Watkins corollary). Now, let’s get into some buy, sell, and hold candidates for this week.
