Players to trade for while you can
With the traditional fantasy trade deadline upon us, take a look at adding this players for the final weeks This week's picks include Josh Freeman, Vick Ballard, Peyton Hillis, Ryan Mathews, and Denarius Moore.
We can still classify Hakeem Nicks as both the Giants' best receiver - Victor Cruz remains 1A when both 100 percent - and fantasy disappointment to date seeing as he hasn't topped 53 receiving yards or found the end zone since Week 2. The latter point is what his owners are dealing with and thus are perhaps susceptible to a low-ball offer. Make it. Nicks is still rounding back into form from his various injuries, but his quarterback rocks and so does the Giants' fantasy schedule down the stretch. Weeks 13-16, it is as follows: at Washington, New Orleans, at Atlanta, at Baltimore. Outside of the Falcons, the other pass defenses rank among the NFL's worst with the Redskins and Saints particularly bad. Assuming good health, Nicks is a stud and Eli Manning will find him.
There is nothing sexy about Heath Miller (we're talking fantasy football wise; I'll let the ladies weigh in on other definitions if they desire) - except his schedule going forward. According to the FFToolbox Strength of Schedule metrics, the Steelers tight ends face the easiest schedule going forward. That's it, that's the case. Well, other than a Week 2 dip, Miller hass posted at least a 4-40 stat line every game. Again, nothing sexy about it, but there is something to be said for consistency, which is also what one can say about him finding the end zone in five of eight games this season. Miller didn't score in Week 9 for the first time in three games, so his trade value might be down a tick. Take advantage with a reasonable offer not involving a current starter on your team.
