Going through the process of finding players that people will trade is a difficult decision. With the fantasy playoffs around the corner, people are starting to become weary of trading players. Rosters are starting to form and teams are starting to be set in stone. Playoff runs are around the corner and this could be the last time you get the chance to trade. In this article, I’ve identified six players that you should target in a trade at the flex position.
Raheem Mostert, RB, San Fransisco 49ers
This is your final warning call. What comes next is a blowup game from Mostert. After injuring himself in Week 6, Mostert is rumored to be back in action in Week 12 according to sources. It’s only Week 10 but that means his price will be uber low. Honestly might be the last time you can acquire him for this low.
According to PFF in games that Mostert has played so far on the season, he is the third-rated RB in the entire league. Wow. He also holds a PFF grade of 89.1 which is graded as an elite level player. He also holds the 2nd highest receiving grade behind only Alvin Kamara.
Mostert has exceeded expectations significantly this season not only in real life but in fantasy. Before injuries, he’s one of the league’s highest-scoring players based on average points per game. Here is a look at Mostert games so far in fantasy.
- Week 1: 25.1 Fantasy Points
- Week 2: 18.7 Fantasy Points [Hurt]
- Week 5: 14.9 Fantasy Points
- Week 6: 9.6 Fantasy Points [Hurt]
Impressive is an understatement considering that Mostert got hurt in two of the four games. The ability to score 10+ points in every game on the season and still not finish the whole game is unfathomable. He is super electric when given the ball and creates big plays with his sub-4.4 speed in the 40-yard dash. Trade for Mostert now while the stock is so low, then thank me when he blows up for 15+ PPR points per game.
