VIDEO: Fantasy Roundup Team Talks Waiver Pickups, Right Time to Trade | Fantastic sports
The fantasy football season is nearing the end of its first third, which means the intensity is increasing – both in your league and on the Fantasy Roundup show, which you can watch on Pari.NOLA.com.
One of the fastest ways to improve your team is to trade. But it is also one of the most difficult. That’s why Spencer “The Guru” Urquhart and Zach Ewing went through some of the basics, starting with selling high – capitalizing on a hot start from a player that might not last – and buying low – at looking for opportunities to catch a player who is gone for a slow start but is too talented not to improve.
Spencer suggested selling high on Falcons running back Cordarrelle Patterson, who caught three touchdown passes last week, and buying low on Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson. Zach said it’s worth asking a hefty price on 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel and see if you can get a good deal on Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
Tune in to the show for more low buy and high sell candidates.
The crew also discussed Week 5 waiver options, such as Bears running back Damien Williams, who will replace injured David Montgomery; and Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold, who rushed for two touchdowns last week and looks to be on a much better offensive plan than he was at the start of his career.
