Buy Low, Sell High: Week 9

A look at players whose value could be a turning point in redraft and dynasty leagues

Buy Low

Logan Thomas, TE, WAS - Thomas should be at the top of the cheap replacement for George Kittle list. He has turned four targets in each of the last two games into 3-42-1 and 4-60-1 lines. The Football Team plays a weak second-half schedule that has the Lions, Bengals, and Cowboys after the Giants this week, and the 49ers, Seahawks, and Panthers in the fantasy playoffs. Kyle Allen threw at least 40 passes in all of the games that his offensive coordinator Scott Turner called last year when they were together in Carolina, which bodes well for Thomas.

Jordan Akins, TE, HOU - If you lost Kittle, you should also check your waiver wire for Akins, who scored in Week 1 and posted a 7-55 line in Week 2. He also had 3-46 on only 19 snaps in Week 4 before he got hurt. Deshaun Watson made Darren Fells into a viable fantasy option for a bit while Akins was out, and Fells scored an easy long score in the first matchup with the Week 9 opponent Jacksonville while Akins was out. Akins has more speed than Fells and he should benefit from facing defenses that are guarding against the deep ball to Will Fuller V.
