David Vallejo and Alex Montes

As week 13 approaches, David and Alex take a look at their trade deadline prospects for the games to come. Alex and David have a selection of sleeper picks, with David having his trade deadline prospects along with his top 5 Boom selections. Alex, in addition to his top sleepers from the waiver wire, will have a Must Trade.

David’s Fantasy trade deadline targets 

QB: Jalen Hurts– After a bad week from Jalen Hurts, it is easy to trade for him this week because he still averages 21.2 Pts

WR: Jaylen Waddle– He has been getting more volume every week.

WR: Darnell Mooney– After Allen Robinson is out Darnell Mooney has been getting more targets.

RB: Austin Ekeler– He loves his fans and plays fantasy himself, so of course he is going to play well for all the weeks to come so he can win as well.

RB: Joe Mixon– He is showing his true colors now, playing well and he is going to continue to play well for the weeks to come.

TE: George Kittle– Since Deebo Samuel is going to be out for a while, more targets are going towards George Kittle. 

D/ST: Patriots– the Patriots are not stopping; they are just going to keep on winning after their hot streak.

K: Nick Folk– He is hands down the best kicker in Fantasy this year and is on the Patriots’ hot streak.

  • Brandon Aiyuk

  • Tee Higgens
  • Myles Gaskin
  • Diontae Johnson

Alex’s Top Fantasy Football Trades 

With the fantasy trade deadline looming on Wednesday, many managers are looking at trade options to improve their teams in the long term. This week’s must trade is Dalvin Cook. While Dalvin has had great production these past weeks, right now is the perfect time to trade him for a couple of solid pieces to round out any team, or for one superstar player. While Dalvin has had an okay 4-week span thus far, his injury history is too risky for a fantasy manager at this point in the season. Trading him now while his value is high would be the smartest play, cutting down on all potential losses with players that will be in the rotation week in and week out. An intriguing trade that could work would be Dalvin Cook and another productive player (11-14 FPTS) for Jonathan Taylor. An alternate trade that could be possible would be Dalvin Cook for Marquise Brown and Tyler Lockett.
