Dynasty Buy Low Candidates

Welcome guys to my first ever edition of ‘Buy Low’.

We’re now heading into week 7, which is just about the halfway point in the regular season in most fantasy football leagues. Your ladders should be beginning to take shape.

Meaning you should be looking at potential trades to shape your side for this season or to start rebuilding for next.

Whatever your situation may be, the best way to trade is always when the stocks are down, buying low.  

Here are my top 3 targets whom I believe you could buy low and benefit your dynasty side greatly.

Alshon Jeffery

I know what you’re saying, 10 receptions, 76 yards, and a touchdown isn’t exactly buying someone at their low point but here me out.

The 6 ft 3 veteran wide receiver is currently the WR32 in PPR Leagues. This is, however, a façade and you should 100% be using this to your advantage in trade negotiations.

You see Jeffery has missed 2 of the Eagles 6 games (weeks 2 and 3 against Atlanta and Detroit). In the four games Alshon has played, he has a receiving TD in all but one.

Of the wide receivers who have played 4 or more games, Alshon is averaging the 11th most points at 17.4 PPG. Placing him ahead of studs such as DeAndre Hopkins (15.5PPG), Mike Evans (16.6), Adam Thielen (16.5) and Courtland Sutton in his breakout year (16.0).

If I am competing, I am going hard at the Alshon owners to acquire him. Ideally, for you guys looking to acquire him, he would be on a rebuilding roster. Where a 29-year-old has no place is putting up numbers. This can hopefully be used to your advantage along with the fact his the “WR32”, but we all know that’s a lie. Use it to your advantage, I implore you.


Joe Mixon

Joe Mixon’s stocks are at an all-time low, he is currently the RB29, averaging 9.2 PPG.

Compare this to his breakout year last season, Mixon finished as the RB10 despite only playing in 13 games.

A more impressive stat is the 17.8 PPG Mixon was putting up last season.

Mixon hasn’t lost touches, he is merely on an incredibly poor NFL team. The Bengals are winless after 6 games and have a changed and banged up O-line.

Newly acquired first-round pick Jonah Williams had shoulder surgery in the offseason, Billy Price hasn’t impressed, and Clint Boling decided to hang up the cleats. Boling was one of the few respectable and consistent pieces the Bengals seemed to have.

Things can only improve for Mixon. He showed what he is capable of in 2018 with a bottom 8 ranked O-Line. I would strongly recommend buying stocks in Mixon if you are in a rebuild. I would take Mixon over the majority of the 2020 first-round dynasty picks.

Williams will be back next season and he was a stud in college for Alabama resulting in being the first offensive linemen taken in the 2019 draft. The Bengals will be sure to address the O-line again in the first 3 rounds of the 2020 draft.

Above bodes well for Mixon’s stocks in 2020 and beyond. So, rebuilders, buy low now whilst you still can.

How many Mixon owners are feeling right now

A reminder of what he is capable of

Marvin Jones

Arguably the third-best Jones to own in fantasy, having a quiet year as the WR45. These numbers are slightly deceiving though as the Lions have already had their bye. He is slightly improved to WR38 on a PPG average for players with a 4 game minimum.

Playing alongside Kenny Golladay, one of them is bound to ball out each week with the gunslinger Matthew Stafford under center.

Jones was the guy Week 3 against the Eagles, 101 yards and a TD.

Unfortunately for Jones, often it has been Golladay this season.

It wasn’t too long ago, in the 2017 season where Jones finished the season as the WR12.

Stafford was still under center and Golladay was lining up alongside Jones.

If you are competing in dynasty and are depleted at flex, you could do worse than upgrading to the 6 ft 2, 29-year-old, red-zone threat. He wouldn’t cost you much, as little as a 3rd round pick and you possibly could nab him for a 4th.

As I said, it was only two seasons ago now he finished inside the top 12!

Thank you for reading guys, I hoped you got something out of it and are targeting these players. Don’t forget to follow me on twitter for many a poll’s @dynastyboyd or on Instagram @boydkillingworth.
