No Pressure, No Diamonds

The approach of the fantasy football trade deadline brings pressure to make strategic moves that could significantly enhance your team’s potential to make the playoffs. Trading stands out as a crucial method to bolster your team midway through the season, demanding thoughtful and careful consideration.  Offering trade advice becomes challenging due to the multitude of variables involved in executing a successful trade. As the trade deadline looms, however, fantasy managers should seriously contemplate acquiring players who present significant potential to elevate their teams. Fantasy gamers should focus on acquiring players who can make a difference in Week 10, potentially tipping the scales towards a championship.

Noah Brown ranks No. 4 in Yards Per Route Run among WRs with 10 or more targets since Week 6

Noah Brown has emerged as a key beneficiary in the absence of Robert Woods, seamlessly fitting into the Houston Texans’ offense with his remarkable ability to make big plays. His average of 11.0 Yards After Catch Per Reception since Week 6 places him second only to Rashee Rice during that timeframe. Known for explosive performances, Brown’s recent standout display in Week 9, where he accumulated an impressive 27.3 fantasy points, is not an isolated incident. He surpassed the 20 fantasy point mark on two occasions in the 2022 season. Consistently playing at least 55-percent of the snaps in every active game this season, Brown’s recent performances suggest that the Texans will continue to rely on him, targeting him for 5 to 7 passes per game.

Tony Pollard has scored only 2 TDs despite 33 Red Zone carries

Scoring touchdowns can be unpredictable, and it’s worth noting that Tony Pollard currently is No. 3 among all running backs for Red Zone carries. With an average of 15 carries per game and ranking No. 5 in receptions, Pollard’s only area of relative shortfall is in converting his opportunities into touchdowns.

Despite this, Pollard still stands out, ranking within Top-10 among running backs in Yards Per Route Run and No. 8 in weighted opportunities. The Cowboys are No. 2 in Game Script, at +6.21.  Looking ahead, Pollard appears poised for an upturn in performance. His forthcoming matchups against the New York Giants, Carolina Panthers, Washington Commanders, and Seattle Seahawks present highly favorable opportunities over the next four weeks. As a result, the window to acquire Pollard at a lower value is rapidly closing.

Dalton Kincaid trails only TJ Hockenson in targets and receptions among TEs over the last 3 weeks

Following Dawson Knox‘s injury, Dalton Kincaid has assumed a significant role, being targeted approximately nine times per game by Josh Allen over his last three games. As the Bills have transitioned to an 11-personnel formation, Kincaid has not been tasked with pass-blocking at all. Instead, he’s been consistently running 39 to 44 pass routes over the past couple of weeks, solidifying his position as a reliable second option within the Buffalo Bills’ offensive scheme.

Considering Knox is anticipated to have a continued absence, there’s little reason to believe that Kincaid’s productivity will wane from the levels he has shown in his recent performances. Even upon Knox’s return, it’s difficult to envision the Bills deviating from heavily involving Kincaid in their game plan. Statistically, Kincaid currently ranks No. 7 among tight ends in receptions and No. 12 in targets for the season. As a result, Kincaid presents a compelling opportunity for week-winning performances at the tight end position throughout the remainder of the season.

The Fantasy Football Trade Deadline

As the fantasy football trade deadline draws near, the urgency to make strategic team-enhancing moves intensifies. Trading remains a pivotal method to fortify your team’s position mid-season, demanding thorough consideration amid the complex variables involved. Acquiring players with the potential to elevate your team becomes paramount, especially in Week 10, potentially tipping the scales towards victory.

Noah Brown, a standout beneficiary in the absence of Robert Woods, demonstrates an impressive knack for big plays, making him a valuable asset. Tony Pollard‘s abundance of Red Zone carries, as well as Dalton Kincaid‘s significant role and consistent performance amid injuries on their respective teams strongly emphasize their potential to bolster fantasy lineups. As fantasy managers contemplate trade decisions, acquiring these players could be the pivotal move toward securing a playoff spot.
