Whether you are planning for the playoff run or starting to clean out your locker in a lost season, those in keeper leagues should continue to work the trade market as there are plenty of injured players that can be had for pennies on the dollar. Today we present a detailed piece from GridIronExperts.com that profiles a few injured players that could pay dividends down the stretch as well as a few that could benefit from a change of scenery making them ideal keeper league targets.
Forward looking owners will consider acquiring players that could change uniforms resulting in a major boost in fantasy value. Carolina will once again be picking among the top 10 picks in April’s draft and their GM was recently canned for multiple boneheaded decisions – most notable signing J-Stew (signed through 2017) and Deangelo (3 years, $17 million remaining) to monster contracts. Williams will be 30 years old when next season kicks off but could still be a worthwhile trade target for teams looking to bolster their backfield. His exodus would elevate Jonathan Stewart to solid RB2 status in Carolina.
Those looking for an upgrade at the TE should trade for Aaron Hernandez today as the Gronk will likely miss at least the next three weeks with a broken arm. Hernandez has played in just 4 games this season but will likely return this week and should resume his role as Brady’s #2 option behind Wes Welker as Brandon Lloyd continues to disappoint.
