Fantasy football trade deadlines are rapidly approaching. And whether you need a Hail Mary to make the playoffs or simply want to bolster your roster for the final stretch, our experts have you covered with buy-low and sell-high candidates at every position.


When Is the Fantasy Football Trade Deadline?

The fantasy football trade deadline varies by platform and league, so the quickest way to answer this question would be to consult your league’s settings.

If your league uses default settings, though, here are deadlines on the major platforms:

  • Yahoo’s Fantasy Football Trade Deadline: The default trade deadline is 11:59 p.m. ET on Nov. 20, the Saturday night of Week 11.
  • ESPN’s Fantasy Football Trade Deadline: The default trade deadline is 12 p.m. ET on Dec. 1, the Wednesday of Week 13.
  • CBS’ Fantasy Football Trade Deadline: The default trade deadline is 11:59 p.m. ET on Nov. 19, the Friday night of Week 12.
  • NFL’s Fantasy Football Trade Deadline: The default trade deadline is Nov. 22, the Monday of Week 12.

Note that the NFL’s decision to extend its season to 18 weeks has shifted the schedule fantasy football managers had grown accustomed to with the 17-week season, so be sure to check your league’s settings for all important dates.
