BUY LOW: Carson Wentz, QB, Philadelphia Eagles

Through six weeks of the season, Carson Wentz is barely a top-10 fantasy quarterback, but there’s a reason to believe that he could be one of the top players in the league through the second half of the season.Wentz has been playing without some of his top weapons since Week 1 when Eagles receivers began dropping like flies due to injury. With Alshon Jeffery back in the fold and DeSean Jackson set to return soon, the Philadelphia offense should start to look a bit more dynamic, giving Wentz a few more high-quality targets downfield.

SELL HIGH: Lamar Jackson, QB, Baltimore Ravens

Lamar Jackson has been something of a cheat code through the NFL. With his running prowess complimenting his improved passing this season, he has become one of the best fantasy quarterbacks in the league.That said, it’s tough to imagine Jackson keeping up such a blistering pace. His three best games of the season came against the Dolphins, Cardinals, and Bengals — three of the worst defenses he’ll see all season.Further, during the critical stretch of the fantasy playoffs, Jackson will be facing off with the 49ers, Bills, Jets, and Browns — a far more treacherous stretch of defenses than he’s seen thus far.

Baker Mayfield has been dreadful so far this year, inevitably leading to resentment among some fantasy owners who had hoped for a breakout year from the Browns quarterback. It’s even possible that he’s been dropped in your league by whichever team initially drafted him.But take one look at the Browns schedule through the second half of the season, and you’ll see why he’s a buy-low player. After their Week 7 bye and trips to New England and Denver, Cleveland finishes the season beginning in Week 10 with this stretch: vs. Bills, vs. Steelers, vs. Dolphins, at Steelers, vs. Bengals, at Cardinals, vs. Ravens, at Bengals.If you have any faith at all in Mayfield’s talent, he’s worth a shot.

SELL HIGH: Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys

Dak Prescott is another player to be wary of heading into the playoff stretch of the fantasy season. Prescott’s big numbers came in the first three weeks, with the Cowboys beating up on the likes of the Giants, Redskins, and Dolphins.While Prescott will have a few more favorable matchups soon, between Weeks 12-14, he’ll be up against the Patriots, Bills, and Bears defenses. With those weeks representing the start of the fantasy postseason and the make-or-break weeks that precede it, it might be best to invest in another quarterback now or possibly dump Prescott if you can find the right trade.

BUY LOW: Le’Veon Bell, RB, New York Jets

Le’Veon Bell’s start with the Jets hasn’t been spectacular, but he’s still been a top-15 running back in the league through six weeks.That was coming against defenses that could stack the box against Bell, unthreatened by the potential of Luke Falk, beating them
