  • Matthew Freedman highlights the players he's buying and selling in dynasty fantasy football leagues after the first two weeks of the season.

Periodically throughout the NFL season I will highlight dynasty fantasy football risers and fallers.

Entering Week 3, the following players have caught my eye as potential assets to buy or sell.

Dynasty Risers

Quarterbacks: Josh Allen (Bills) & Mason Rudolph (Steelers)

Allen was an exquisitely inaccurate passer in college (54.2% completion rate) and his rookie season (52.8%), but after returning from a mid-season elbow injury last year, he was the No. 1 quarterback over the final six weeks of the season, averaging 24.2 fantasy points per game.

In Weeks 1-2, Allen completed 64.2% of his passes and displayed his Konami Code rushing ability with a combined 59 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries. He’s showing that his strong rookie-year finish was no fluke.

As for Rudolph, the 2018 third-rounder didn’t play a snap last year, but in Week 2 he stepped up as an in-game substitute for injured starter Ben Roethlisberger (elbow), and he handled himself well, completing 12 of 19 passes for 112 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.
