This week, we have the usual five players to add and cut based on recent changes in playing time, situation and future opponents. But now that the trade deadline has already passed in most re-draft leagues, we'll turn away from the players to trade and trade for in favor of highlighting players to buy or sell in dynasty leagues.
In some cases, these are players who might hurt your dynasty team for the rest of 2020 but help in the long run. In other cases, they are players who are probably on benches this year anyway but could see their value rise or fall as the offseason goes on, so it’s better to buy or sell them now. All references to cap hits, salary cap space and potential unrestricted free agents come courtesy of the data available at Over The Cap.
FIVE PLAYERS TO ADD
1. RB Gus Edwards, Baltimore Ravens
Look no further than Baltimore's Gus Edwards if you need a running back for Week 12. Both J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram II have tested positive for Covid-19, leaving Edwards and Justice Hill at the top of the depth chart ahead of their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Edwards and Hill were the only Ravens backs to play in Week 17 of 2019, so we already have a sense of how that backfield could play out. Edwards played 70% of snaps, with Hill accounting for the remaining 30%. Edwards was given over twice as many carries, while the two roughly split third-down snaps.
Edwards racked up 87 rushing yards and a touchdown across 16 carries (5.4 yards per carry) the last time these two teams met. With a higher percentage of touches, he could have an even bigger game this time around.
2. RB Frank Gore, New York Jets
