Each week we will be taking a look at some fantasy football players who underwhelmed in their previous weeks performances. These players offer great trade value as buy low targets. Swinging deals on the trade market is an art form that is intimidating for some fantasy players to utilize aggressively, but can be a difference maker for your lineups and provide you an advantage over your competitors. This will help you build a stacked team of reliable players instead of constantly chasing points on the waiver wire.

The concept entering trade negotiations is to strengthen a weak point on your team, offering up your depth at one position to satisfy the needs of another.

Here is a look at some players we think you should BUY coming off down weeks that could offer excellent fantasy football value for the remainder of the season.

Melvin Gordon, RB, Los Angeles Chargers

Fantasy owners aren’t the only ones frustrated after Melvin Gordon’s disappointing Week 4 performance as the running back himself expressed he is frustrated with his lack of involvement. Generally when Gordon hasn’t been able to get anything going on the ground he is still heavily involved in the passing game, but that wasn’t the case in Week 4 as Gordon surprisingly saw only 11 total touches in the game.

With dual threat talents like Gordon, you’re not going to get many opportunities to buy low as they generally have a pretty safe floor. But if owners are discouraged after this performance, maybe worried about the risk of injury and the fact that Gordon has only been able to average 3.1 yards per carry this season, it gives you a good reason to make a reasonable offer to try and secure yourself a true feature back.
