Jason Radowitz breaks down Week 1 of Fantasy Football and gives you 12 trade candidates ahead of Week 2 of the 2022 NFL season.

Fantasy Football Buy Low, Sell High: 12 Trade Candidates Ahead of Week 2

Everyone knows rule number one in fantasy football! Don't overreact after one week.

You'll be on your way to a successful fantasy football season if you can do that. One week doesn't dictate anything. However, we did learn a couple of things in Week 1, mainly about rotations and target share.

That kind of data is essential to look at.

If you're unhappy with how Week 1 went, we've put together a list of players you should buy low or sell high ahead of Week 2.

Fantasy Football Players to Buy Low in Week 2

A.J. Dillon, RB, Green Bay Packers

Most were unsure about Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon in the Green Bay Packers offense coming into the season.

Jones was drafted higher than Dillon in most leagues. However, Dillon had more production in Week 1 against the Vikings. Jones and Dillon each ran for over 45 yards. However, Dillon got double the carries and added five receptions after being targeted six times in the passing game. Dillon also got the goal line carries. Dillon will be extremely useful for PPR leagues, and on top of that, he's getting more rushing attempts than Jones. Buy Dillon!

Mike Williams, WR, Los Angeles Chargers

Mike Williams was unimpressive in Week 1 against the Raiders. He hauled in two catches for 10 yards and four targets. But with the Keenan Allen news, Williams becomes a fantasy football threat again.

His ceiling is extremely high because he can put together a big play down the field that could also result in a touchdown. If Allen isn't available against the Chiefs on Thursday, Herbert will need to get his receivers the ball downfield in a potential shootout.

Williams could benefit from Allen's absence.

DeVonta Smith, WR, Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles put up 38 points and didn't even get DeVonta Smith involved. A.J. Brown will hurt his targets down the line, but Smith is still the number two receiver in an offense that feels like they can win the NFC East this season.

Jalen Hurts will battle with the best offensive line in football and find ways to get Smith the ball moving forward. If there's an owner ready to sell Smith, pick him up for a low price.

DJ Moore, WR, Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers were involved in an emotional game against the Cleveland Browns, knowing their starting quarterback was taking on his former team. Baker Mayfield only completed 16 passes on the day and threw more targets to Robbie Anderson than D.J. Moore. Anderson had a big day, but I'm not going to run away from early speculation and analysis. D.J. Moore is going to be the guy in Carolina. Anderson's going to be inconsistent. Moore won't be. Grab Moore if you can. He'll have some big days this year.

Fantasy Football Players to Sell High Before Week 2

Alvin Kamara, RB, New Orleans Saints

Was Alvin Kamara hurt? The Saints were losing by multiple scores against the Atlanta Falcons for most of the game. Eventually, the Saints were able to prevail. But part of the problem was that they didn't get Alvin Kamara involved.

He had just 12 touches in Week 1 and earned 42 yards. He's still going to be a solid pass catcher, but as long as Mark Ingram is around, Kamara's production will likely be limited.

Plus, Kamara could be suspended this year. If someone's willing to pay up for his history, trade him away.

CeeDee Lamb, WR, Dallas Cowboys

CeeDee Lamb had 11 targets but caught just two balls on Sunday Night Football. With the news that Dak Prescott will be out for at least a month, Lamb will likely see his production and projections drop significantly.

If you think that the Cowboys will sign someone to play quarterback, Lamb could be a buy-low option, but for now, Cooper Rush is the quarterback in Dallas. Lamb won't benefit from that at all.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, Kansas City Chiefs

Clyde scored two early touchdowns but played just 39% of the snaps in Week 1. Maybe that has to do with the Chiefs being up big early. But you still want your fantasy players to be padding stats in garbage time.

That's ultimately not a good look. If someone is willing to pay up for a guy with two touchdowns last week, sell him now.

Miles Sanders, RB, Philadelphia Eagles

Miles Sanders had an excellent Week 1, earning a touchdown and nearly 100 yards on the ground. But Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott also found the endzone around the red zone.

That's deflating news for Sanders' owners. Sanders is still a solid option in fantasy, but he won't get every touchdown opportunity around the red zone. I'd sell if you're able to.
