- Which players should you be looking to add to your fantasy football roster in Week 12? Which ones should you let go?
- Chris Raybon breaks down the targets on this weekend's slate that present value in the fantasy football market.
Remember when Zach Pascal was a thing?
If you’re still reading this column each week, you’re likely in the playoff hunt and have a late (or no) trade deadline, so just continue to look for ways to improve your team with trades even if you don’t have any gaping holes.
Sometimes simply selling high on a guy whose regression is clear as day like Pascal can help you avoid start/sit traps that could’ve up ended up negatively impacting your playoff seeding, while buying low on guys like Kenyan Drake or Joe Mixon could benefit you when you least expect it.
And sometimes an exchange can work in your favor simply due to injury luck. There was no way of predicting past sell-high recommendations like Alshon Jeffery, Matthew Stafford, and, most recently, Damien Williams, would get injured in short order, but peaking value generally comes with good health as a prerequisite.
So although we talk more explicitly about injury in regard to buying low on players who are returning from injury, there’s also an injury regression factor working in your favor when selling high that often goes overlooked. It’s all about attempting to net as many positive edges as you can leading up to the playoffs.
