Way back in week four, we mentioned a few guys that you should look to buy low on - including Jordy Nelson, CJ Spiller, and Fred Jackson.  Since, Nelson has 11-150-3 in two weeks, Jackson has 117 total yards with a score, and Spiller has managed to keep himself in the top 25 fantasy players in terms of total points.  We hope you cashed in on any of these players, as we think all three will be more than serviceable in the coming weeks.  We also told you that week 4 was the prime opportunity to sell high on Jamaal Charles, after his ridiculous 288 yard showing against N.O.  Charles has certainly maintained high RB2 status, but has just 319 total yards and one score in the three weeks since his outburst and is currently on a bye week.  We hope you picked up something nice in return for him.  As we look forward to the ever-exciting bye week blues, PFS has a few guys in mind that should be worth buying low or selling high on.

Stevie Johnson WR BUF - Johnson has put up decent enough stats at 27-316-3, and we consider that he has a bye week 8, but PFS thinks that Johnson could be breaking out in the upcoming weeks.  Considering that he has faced 4 of the top 12 passing d's including a healthy Revis in week one, his line looks that much nicer.  We like the fact that both Spiller and FJax are healthy, admit to the fact that the Bills will probably be playing in some shootouts, and they are already one WR short (Nelson).  Buffalo plays some very soft passing defenses in the next several weeks, the Revis-less Jets, Miami twice, Jacksonville, and Tennessee.  Look past some tough matchups against Houston, Seattle and St. Louis - Johnson will get his.  Buy low.

BenJarvis Green-Ellis RB CIN - Lawfirm has had a rough go of it according to expectations as the top dog in Cincinnati - with a showing of just over 400 yards and a couple of scores through six games.  But don't be fooled, the fumbling problem he has had in recent weeks is more likely fluke than a trend, and he has faced a few tough teams and Cincy has been playing from behind a lot.  With Bernard Scott out for the remainder of the season, and the passing game becoming evidently more stable each week, BJGE should improve with time.  The Bengals face just two top-ten teams the rest of the way as far as run defense and they will need to lean heavily on Green-Ellis.  Buy as low as possible and plug him into your second RB slot.

Andy Dalton QB CIN - It's probably not the best idea to sell any QB who may ever throw to AJ Green, but Dalton might be just the guy to help you secure a little more depth at your fantasy skill positions.  And while the return might not be the greatest as far as fantasy point value here, Dalton is producing in the top 20 fantasy players at the moment.  But with a week 8 bye, followed by some matchups against tough pass D's like Pit twice, Philly, and Dallas.  Sell high and get what you can, so long as your other fantasy QB has already had his bye week.

I need a WR, looking to trade Dalton. What type of value can I expect back from a team that needs QB help.

It certainly depends on the other teams' rosters - but a rule of thumb I'd go by is to take back half the actual value of what Dalton's worth. He's ranked inside the top 20 (without a bye yet), with 140 pts. And considering he probably won't be a full-season starter to the team that picks him up, you could get a flex-type of guy ranking within the top 75, or someone with between 60-70 points. Think Andre Roberts, Randall Cobb, Malcolm Floyd or a guy like Amendola who should be back within the next few weeks. You may be able to sneak a guy like Jordy Nelson, Brandon Lloyd, or an injured Greg Jennings straight up.

Again, it all depends on your league, and they manager you are trying to work a deal with, but if you need some WR help, and have the spare part laying around on your bench - get what you can.
