Kelley: 14-for-37 and 2 catches is a far cry from the
massive three score breakout in Week 11. Kelley will never repeat
that performance and will be lucky to come anywhere close from here
Garcon: After seeing increased production over the last
four weeks, Garcon took a step hack with 4 catches for 41 yards.
Predictably so, he will probably hover around this range the rest
of the season and will not be a difference maker unless Jordan Reed
misses significant time.
Reed: The perfect bounce-back game 10-for-92 and 2 TDs.
Yes he is most likely out this week with an AC joint sprain, but
you knew going in that you were buying into a high-risk/high-reward
commodity. Still a great buy for someone who can win you a league.
Hill: 12-for-21 yards on the ground is pretty weak. Six
catches for 61 yards through the air is pretty sweet in PPR leagues.
With Giovani Bernard on IR, Hill should maintain workhorse duties
making him a solid buy heading into the fantasy playoffs especially
with Cleveland on the docket for Week 14.
Given that most leagues are well past their respective trade deadlines,
it’s the perfect time to wrap up this column with a summary
of the season and the advice I’ve given to date.

After reviewing the numbers I feel accomplished considering my first
year writing trade advice yielded positive results. Of course I’ve
given advice (we all do) about trades in the past, but to document
it and constantly grade and re-grade on a weekly basis is a tough
gig indeed. Looking back at my favorite trades from this year…
Trading is an addictive rollercoaster that will get you saying “I’ll
never trade again!” one week and then make you feel like you’re
the savviest team manager in the world the next. Just when you think
you’re out, you get pulled right back in! (I had to end with
a Godfather reference as I started my column with one.)
Sometimes there’s a clear winner and a clear loser. Sometimes
it works out where you can both win and no one is sour. I can tell
you everyone who trades deals with the ups and the downs. Hopefully
I lead you to more ups than downs this year.
With that, I would like to thank all of my readers, commenters,
and those that have contacted me directly as you are the ones that
keep me writing and analyzing every week. I will be back next year
(as long as FFToday will have me) to continue my quest to providing
you with the best trade advice while maintaining accountability.
Hopefully you received as much benefit from this service as I had
had providing it.
On that note Happy Holidays and New Year and good luck in the fantasy
