Trade Wins – Big Names to Target and Avoid

spnw_marshawn_Lynch_flex1Last week, we looked at in-season VBD to see how it has evolved since the preseason. It showed us, among other things, that tight ends had gained significant value. We’ll revisit it a few more times throughout the season, but for now, let’s get onto a few specific trade targets. This isn’t going to be a typical buy low, sell high feature. At the end of the day, everyone you are trying to acquire is a buy low in that you expect them to perform even better after you acquire them (and vice versa with sell high). But the following players fall under a variation of the buy low sell high group, and so you may find value targeting these specific guys.

Chances are my depth can cover me for a few weeks and I’ll be getting the player at a slight discount and, best of all, he will be fresh for the stretch run. For my opponent, they may be in need of a few wins and can’t afford to sit on an injury.
