Fantasy football Week 10 buy low/sell high: Put Nick Chubb on the block

Fantasy football Week 10 buy low/sell high: Put Nick Chubb on the block

Most fantasy football trade deadlines are only two weeks away on Nov. 21, so don't waste your chance to set yourself up for success in the playoffs.

Here's your list of buy low and sell high candidates heading into Week 10.

BUY LOW

Matt Ryan, QB, Atlanta Falcons: You should be able to get Ryan for pretty cheap as he returns from his ankle injury. Given his reliability as a fantasy asset, it may be worth trying to work out a deal for him if you're in need of a solid QB for the rest of the season.

Devin Singletary, RB, Buffalo Bills: If you missed your chance to buy low on Singletary last week, you may have missed your opportunity as he enjoyed the best game of his rookie season on Sunday. It's still worth checking in to see what the asking price is, though, as he's taken over RB1 duties in Buffalo and is a decent RB2 in fantasy for the remainder of the year.

Le'Veon Bell, RB, New York Jets: I guess I'll just keep putting him on this list. Like I've said in past weeks, Bell has an incredibly easy schedule for the rest of the season and despite the Jets' struggles, you should do everything you can to get him on your roster for cheap.

Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Cleveland Browns: Yes, he's on here again after a mediocre week in a tough matchup vs. Chris Harris and the Broncos. The schedule gets easier from here though, so you should be looking to get him for cheap just like Bell.

SELL HIGH

Nick Chubb, RB, Cleveland Browns: Now is the time to sell high on Chubb with Kareem Hunt returning from his suspension. You shouldn't expect Chubb to cede a ton of work to Hunt right away, though slowly but surely the former Chiefs RB is going to eat into Chubb's workload.

Damien Williams, RB, Kansas City Chiefs: The Kansas City backfield is Williams'... for now. Simply put, the RB situation is far too unpredictable to feel confident about having him in your lineup on a week-to-week basis. Save yourself the headache and sell Williams now while his value is at its highest.

Courtland Sutton, WR, Denver Broncos: Sutton is an exceptional talent, but I just don't have faith in the quarterback situation in Denver for the rest of the season. You'll definitely be able to get a nice haul in return considering Sutton's numbers on the year.

D.K. Metcalf, WR, Seattle Seahawks: The rookie wideout has been fantastic the last couple of weeks, but now he has a tough matchup vs. the 49ers before his Week 12 bye. Given that volume is always a concern for Metcalf in Seattle's run-first offense, now is a good time to sell.

Fantasy football Week 16 waiver wire: Breshad Perriman can be a league-winner

Fantasy football Week 16 waiver wire: Breshad Perriman can be a league-winner

It's not about how you start the fantasy football season. It's how you finish.

If you're reading this, chances are your squad is loaded enough to roll through your league's playoffs to the championship round.

But there's always room for improvement, and the Week 16 waiver wire includes a couple players who should be legitimate starters in any fantasy lineup, regardless of depth.

Want to win the whole thing? Start by doing your due diligence on the waiver wire. Here are our top free-agent pickups at each position entering Week 16.

QUARTERBACK

Ryan Fitzpatrick, Miami Dolphins (owned in 25 percent of Yahoo! leagues): We hope you have a better QB1 option than Fitzpatrick if you've reached your league's championship. But if you're in a two-QB league, the ageless, bearded wonder is a fine pickup: He's attempted 37 or more passes in five consecutive games and gets a beatable Cincinnati Bengals defense.

Other quarterbacks to target: Jacoby Brissett (IND), Mitchell Trubisky (CHI), Gardner Minshew (JAX)

RUNNING BACK

Alexander Mattison, Minnesota Vikings (39 percent owned): It's still unclear if Dalvin Cook will play in Week 16 after suffering a shoulder injury Sunday. If he doesn't, that's a massive opportunity for either Mattison or Mike Boone, who found the end zone twice in Week 15 with Cook and Mattison both sidelined. If Mattison is healthy, he should be your top waiver wire priority against the Green Bay Packers' Swiss cheese run defense.

Other running backs to target: Mike Boone (MIN), Chris Thompson (WAS), Wes Hills (DET)

WIDE RECEIVER

Breshad Perriman, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (13 percent owned): This one's a no-brainer. Perriman had produced double-digit fantasy points in two consecutive weeks before going off for three touchdowns last Sunday in Mike Evans' absence. With Chris Godwin also on the shelf, Perriman suddenly is the No. 1 wideout for Jameis Winston and the pass-happy Bucs.

Other wide receivers to target: Anthony Miller (CHI), Chris Conley (JAX), James Washington (PIT)

TIGHT END

O.J. Howard, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (41 percent owned): Perriman isn't the only Bucs pass-catcher who should benefit from Evans and Godwin being out. Howard has at least four catches in three consecutive games, and the Houston Texans have allowed six touchdowns to tight ends over their last seven contests.

Other tight ends to target: Jonnu Smith (TEN), Darren Fells (HOU)

DEFENSE

Denver Broncos (25 percent owned): David Blough's stats through three games as the Detroit Lions' starting quarterback -- five interceptions, one fumble, nine sacks -- are all the evidence you need to pick up the Broncos ahead of this matchup in Denver.

Other defenses to target: Indianapolis (vs. CAR), Atlanta (vs. JAX)

Fantasy football Week 15 waiver wire: Can A.J. Brown deliver in playoffs?

Fantasy football Week 15 waiver wire: Can A.J. Brown deliver in playoffs?

You didn't come this far just to come this far.

Week 15 of the NFL season means it's the semifinal round of the fantasy football playoffs in most leagues.

If you're reading this, congrats on still being alive. But you're not interested in a runner-up trophy, and we're not interested in providing runner-up advice.

Below are the top players at each position who are widely available on fantasy football waiver wires and are worth adding for Week 15 as you seek fantasy glory.

QUARTERBACK

Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans (owned in 48 percent of Yahoo! leagues): We'll continue to put Tannehill on this list until he's owned in more than half of leagues. The Titans gunslinger was the sixth-best quarterback in fantasy last week and faces a Houston Texans defense that just allowed 309 passing yards and three touchdowns to Drew Lock. He's your guy again this week.

Other quarterbacks to target: Ryan Fitzpatrick (MIA), Jacoby Brissett (IND), Kyle Allen (CAR)

RUNNING BACK

Adrian Peterson, Washington Redskins (40 percent owned): News that Derrius Guice has a sprained MCL means Peterson is the clear-cut workhorse on a team that loves to run the ball. The ageless veteran has touchdowns in back-to-back weeks and should see north of 20 touches against the Philadelphia Eagles, making him the safest waiver wire pickup among running backs.

Other running backs to target: DeAndre Washington (OAK), Patrick Laird (MIA), Boston Scott (PHI)

WIDE RECEIVER

A.J. Brown, Tennessee Titans (27 percent owned): The rookie wide receiver has become Tannehill's go-to deep threat, with 333 receiving yards over his last three games. Brown's low catch total makes him a bit of a boom-or-bust play, but it's the playoffs. Gotta take shots to make shots.

Other wide receivers to target: Zach Pascal (IND), Darius Slayton (NYG), Justin Watson (TB)

TIGHT END

David Njoku, Cleveland Browns (37 percent owned): Njoku caught just one pass for four yards in his first game since Week 2, but has a dream matchup against an Arizona Cardinals defense that's given up the most fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season. He's a high-risk breakout candidate.

Other tight ends to target: Gerald Everett (LAR), Darren Fells (HOU)

DEFENSE

Kansas City Chiefs (32 percent owned): Is the Chiefs defense ... good? Kansas City has held each of its last opponents (including the New England Patriots) to 16 points or fewer. The Denver Broncos are riding high after upsetting the Texans, but we're sensing a turnover-filled letdown game in KC.

Other defenses to target: Oakland (vs. JAX), Seattle (at CAR)
