Buy Low


Sammie Coates, wide receiver, Pittsburgh Steelers: 20 receptions, 425 yards, two touchdowns

Sammie Coates, in his second year out of Auburn, has become a deep threat for the Pittsburgh Steelers. After a disappointing rookie campaign, Coates bounced back in tremendous fashion, putting up stellar numbers while dealing with a lingering figure injury. Coates production is expected to shoot up with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger coming back to 100 percent after sustaining an MCL sprain. Pick up Coates now before he explodes, or risk losing a chance at getting him.


Donte Moncrief, wide receiver, Indianapolis Colts: 14 receptions, 169 yards, three touchdowns

After a strong sophomore performance, Colts No. 2 receiver Donte Moncrief was poised to have an even better year than before, however, he was struck by the injury bug. Moncrief sustained a shoulder injury against the Denver Broncos in Week 2 and returned Week 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs. His impact was felt immediately, as he tallied four receptions for 41 yards and one touchdown. He then followed up his performance with another productive day, which resulted in a touchdown and a Colts victory. Moncrief will be plucked up soon, so act quickly and you may be able to steal him from your unsuspecting league members.


Sell High


Stefon Diggs, wide receiver, Minnesota Vikings: 48 receptions, 546 yards, two touchdowns

Following a breakout rookie season, the Vikings No. 1 receiver Stefon Diggs has put up stellar numbers to put him on track to eclipse last year’s totals. He has been the go-to guy for Sam Bradford all season, Diggs has been a strong fantasy play, putting up double-digit points in multiple weeks, however, it’s time to sell Diggs. Yes, Diggs is playing well, but his production has suffered lately with the deterioration of the Vikings offense. Sell Diggs now before his production drops too far to salvage.
