Buy Low

Jamaal Williams, RB, Green Bay Packers

The injury-bug has hit the Packers hard in their backfield as rookie Jamaal Williams is the only back who is healthy. Williams went into Sunday’s game as the No. 3 back; however, with the injuries to Aaron Jones and Ty Montgomery, Williams looks to take a bigger role in the coming weeks. He has produced over the past games when given an opportunity.

Kenyan Drake, RB, Miami Dolphins

Kenyan Drake saw split carries with Damien Williams in the Dolphins 45-21 loss to the Panthers on Monday night. Drake may not have dominated, but he was sure the most productive back. He ran for 82 yards on seven carries. He scored for the first time this season. As the season goes on, he will spend increased time there. Therefore, if your questioning which Dolphins’ running back to pick up, I recommend Drake becaue he has produced the most since Jay Ajayi got traded and he can be a strong FLEX or RB2 play.

Sell High

Keenan Allen, WR, Los Angeles Chargers

Keenan Allen hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 1 against the Broncos. He has seen his yardage decrease as the season has progressed. Allen’s targets have dropped as the Chargers’ receiving corps has become more crowded with the addition of rookie Mike Williams. He also hasn’t had a 100-yard game since Week 4 against the Eagles, where he went for 138 yards. With the possible concussion to Phillip Rivers, the upside isn’t bright for Allen; therefore, trade him now before his production ultimately drops to untradeable status.

Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys

I’m not saying Dak Prescott hasn’t produced, but the future doesn’t look bright. Prescott has been tearing up defenses, however, in his first game without Ezekiel Elliott, he had one his worst performances. Prescott threw for only 176 yards. The Falcons sacked him eight times on Sunday as Falcons defensive tackle Adrian Clayborn abused left tackle Chaz Green. With the question at left tackle and the absence of Elliott; Prescott is a big sell high candidate as his value continues to diminish.
