Fantasy football: Buy low, sell high candidates

After five weeks, there may be some teams desperate to make a trade in an attempt to save their season. Regardless of where you stand, a well-timed move now can still help you gear up for a title run.

With that in mind, let's analyze some good candidates to buy low and sell high on as you look to improve your team.

BUY LOWAndrew Luck(QB, Colts)

Luck should be back to producing at an elite level now that he's healthy.

Eddie Lacy(RB, Packers)

His O-line is finally full strength, and the remaining matchups will be much friendlier. He'll be back to being the trustworthy RB1 you thought he was very soon.

Mike Evans(WR, Buccaneers)

His raw numbers look bad due to an early injury, but he's been getting plenty of targets and still is nearly impossible to stop in the red zone.

Others: Peyton Manning (QB, Broncos), Ben Roethlisberger (QB, Steelers), Marshawn Lynch (RB, Seahawks), Jeremy Hill (RB, Bengals), Melvin Gordon (RB, Chargers), Antonio Brown (WR, Steelers), Dez Bryant (WR, Cowboys), Sammy Watkins (WR, Bills), Greg Olsen (TE, Panthers).

SELL HIGHAndy Dalton(QB, Bengals)

He is playing at a much higher level this year, but he's still unlikely to keep up this pace. Try trading him for QB1 value while you can.

Doug Martin(RB,


He will continue to impress when the Bucs are ahead, but he loses touches to Charles Sims when the Bucs fall behind. Something tells me that moving forward they'll be behind a lot more often than they'll be ahead.

James Jones(WR, Packers)

He will retain plenty of value, but Jones won't continue to produce like this. He is still the third option in the offense.

Others: Tyrod Taylor (QB, Bills), Blake Bortles (QB, Jaguars), Joseph Randle (RB, Cowboys), Carlos Hyde (RB, 49ers), Chris Johnson (RB, Cardinals), David Johnson (RB, Cardinals), Travis Benjamin (WR, Browns), Allen Hurns (WR, Jaguars), Pierre Garcon (WR, Redskins), Antonio Gates (TE, Chargers), Gary Barnidge (TE, Browns).
