Consider exploring a trade for DJ Moore, who recently showcased his skills for the struggling Bears team. It’s important to make a move now as Moore is currently ranked 83rd in WR usage after two weeks, falling behind players like Dontayvion Wicks and Brandon Johnson.
Although Moore had an impressive 100-yard performance in Week 2, the Bears’ offense hasn’t shown improvement since 2022. With poor play-calling, a struggling offensive line, and Justin Fields ranking 30th in accuracy, Moore has received only nine targets this season.
Exploring a trade for players like Michael Pittman or Garrett Wilson could be a wise decision.
Brian Robinson has had a strong start to the season, playing 57% of the snaps and earning 79% of the Commanders’ rush attempts. This has led him to rank third in RB fantasy points after two weeks.
However, Robinson’s higher-than-expected points total can be attributed to some early TD luck and unsustainable receiving production, considering he isn’t running many routes. Although Robinson remains a solid fantasy starter, it might be the right time to cash in, especially as the Commanders are 6.5-point underdogs in Week 3.
This presents an opportunity for Antonio Gibson to earn more playing time, potentially limiting Robinson’s upside. Exploring a trade for someone like Kyren Williams could be beneficial.
If you’re looking for a promising rookie, Sam LaPorta should be on your radar. LaPorta has made a solid start to his NFL career, running 72% of the routes and earning five targets in Week 1. Tight ends with similar usage typically average a top-12 fantasy finish. In Week 2, LaPorta’s usage improved significantly with him running an elite 84% of the routes and earning six targets.
Compared to all the other Lions’ TEs, LaPorta has run 56 routes compared to their 14. He has consistently produced since his breakout year at Iowa in 2021, averaging 7.2 targets per game over his final two college seasons. Investing in LaPorta now could reap long-term benefits.
Trading away Raheem Mostert might be a wise move considering his current status as the third-luckiest RB in 2023, according to PFF. Mostert has earned 70% more points than expected based on his role. Although his production has been impressive, it isn’t sustainable.
Mostert has played 73% of the Dolphins’ RB snaps and earned 58% of the rushes, along with running 65% of the routes. These numbers indicate legitimate RB1 usage, resulting in an average of 18.6 fantasy points per game, ranking him in the top-five among RBs.
However, with Jeff Wilson expected to return from the PUP list after Week 4 and Wilson’s favored role as the main red-zone back last season, it might be smart to trade Mostert for someone like Jerry Jeudy or Alvin Kamara.
It’s tempting to hold on to Drake London after his impressive 15.7-point performance in Week 2. He displayed exceptional skills, getting open deep and winning a tough matchup against Jaire Alexander. However, the concern lies in his offense, as the Falcons only threw the ball 32 times during their Week 2 game, despite trailing by two scores in the second half.
London’s best-case scenario seems limited, evident by Atlanta’s limited passing attempts and Kyle Pitts receiving just four targets. To maximize value, consider trading London for players like Chris Godwin or Mike Williams.
Christian Kirk’s performance in Week 2 may seem appealing, as he scored 16.46 points on a massive 14 targets against Kansas City. Kirk’s routes increased from 66% in Week 1 to 84% in Week 2. However, it is essential to note that Zay Jones missed time due to injury, and Calvin Ridley also missed snaps. Kirk was the only fully healthy WR in this game for Jacksonville.
With Trevor Lawrence making more than 40 pass attempts and Kirk earning a 36% target share, it explains his significant involvement. Nonetheless, it would be wise to consider selling Kirk after this unsustainable performance, potentially for players like Michael Pittman or Jerry Jeudy.
While Mike Evans has dominated the first two weeks of the season for the Buccaneers, Chris Godwin still maintains strong usage. The Bucs’ offense, led by new offensive coordinator Dave Canales, has proven to be sustainable. Despite Baker Mayfield’s previous struggles, the offense has been simplified, resulting in Canales igniting production for Baker.
Godwin, who led the Bucs WRs in routes with 28 in Week 2, earned seven targets and has averaged the most routes per game on the team with 31.5. It’s crucial to note that Baker missed Godwin on a potential 15-yard TD in Week 2. Given Godwin’s consistent role, trading for him before Week 3 could prove to be a fruitful move.
