Fantasy football trade value – Time to go get Stefon Diggs?


Hope is not a winning fantasy football strategy.

You always need to have a plan, but sometimes plans go awry and the season can get away in a hurry. In fact, you may be looking at a 2-3, 1-4 or even 0-5 squad right now.

The good news is that you have a choice. You can quit and make it easier on the other managers in your league or you can keep fighting. If choose the latter, the process may involve rebuilding your team from the ground up.

This week’s Trade Value column will focus entirely on transactions you can make to dramatically alter the foundation of your team. Some of these recommendations are players that have upcoming byes which may make it easier to trade for them.

Please continue to leverage Field Yates’ Waiver Wire column and my Streamers column for lineup options you can consider each week as bye weeks come up.

Stefon Diggs, WR, Buffalo Bills

So far this season Diggs hasn’t had the fantasy production to justify his first-round ADP, but he has averaged 9.4 targets and 127.2 air yards per game. Courtland Sutton (128.8) and Davante Adams (145.6) are the only wide receivers who have a higher per-game average than Diggs in that important metric. As a reminder, Diggs developed an immediate rapport with Josh Allen last season and averaged an impressive 20.5 fantasy points per game, including an astounding 32.1 per game during the fantasy playoffs (Weeks 14-16). Better days are ahead for Diggs and Allen. The Buffalo Bills have a very good matchup against the Tennessee Titans this week before their bye. After that, Buffalo has matchups against the Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts. Make it a priority this week to trade for him.

DJ Moore, WR, Carolina Panthers
