Here are some players that you might want to consider trading while their stock is high in your fantasy football league:
Austin Collie, Wide Receiver, Indianapolis Colts: I think Collie will have legitimate fantasy value for the duration of the season, but there’s a good chance that his stock will never be higher than it is going into Week 5. He’s leading all wideouts in fantasy points and has scored in every game of the season thus far. His name might not sell a ton of NFL tickets right now, but he can probably fetch a nice price on the fantasy trade market.
Darren McFadden, Running Back, Oakland Raiders: McFadden has been a beast in 2010, finally making good on all the promise he showed in college. However, he experienced his first injury of the regular season in Week 4 and Michael Bush has returned to 100 percent health. Even if McFadden bounces back from injury well, Bush could cut into his workload.
Jahvid Best, Running Back, Detroit Lions: Best could still be a monster for the remainder of 2010, but I’d ship him if I could get a more reliable back. Best is a tantalizing talent, but he’s injury prone and plays on a team that is frequently behind. Don’t take 50 cents on the dollar for him or anything, but consider shopping him if there’s interest.
Brandon Lloyd, Wide Receiver, Denver Broncos: We’ve seen this from Lloyd before. That’s not to say that he hasn’t finally figured it out, but we have definitely been down this road. Trading him is risky, but keeping him is equally as risky. If you can get a more proven player in return, do it.
Tom Brady, Quarterback, New England Patriots: Brady will be a viable fantasy starter for the rest of the year, but a lot of his upside left town with Randy Moss. If you can snag another reliable quarterback and another good player for him, you might want to consider it.
Mike Tolbert, Running Back, San Diego Chargers: Tolbert is not going to be the feature back in San Diego for the long term, so getting rid of him now for anything substantial is probably worth it.
Braylon Edwards, Wide Receiver, New York Jets: Edwards has had a solid start to the 2010 season, but with Santonio Holmes returning from suspension you can expect his production to decrease. Plus, it’s not a lock that Mark Sanchez can stay consistent.
Terrell Owens, Wide Receiver, Cincinnati Bengals: I think T.O. is actually going to be a pretty solid WR2 or flex play a lot of weeks this season, but if you can find someone that is overrating to his huge Week 4 you should make the most of it.
Roy Williams, Wide Receiver, Dallas Cowboys: Williams probably had his best game of the entire season in Week 3 and I don’t expect him to be a major focal point of this offense in any way. Dez Bryant just has too much talent and Miles Austin is a stud.
