Four Fantasy Football Buy Low Candidates Early in the Season
We've reached the point in the fantasy football season where some teams have been able to differentiate themselves from others, in good ways and bad. If you're on the wrong end of the spectrum, it's time to make a move, plain and simple.
But you don't want to give up your whole team in order to get that one stud player you have your eye on, right? Here are five players that you can get for great value, or in other words, four buy-low players.
1. Michael Vick

Mike Vick hasn't been awful through three games so far, but he hasn't been as good as he's capable of playing. That's the big reason why he's a buy-low candidate. Vick is capable of much better and I have a feeling he's going to be hitting his stride very soon.
Vick has just turned the ball over way too much. There's no way that he continues to turn the ball over at his current rate for the rest of the season. He's going to play better and if you get him now, you could catch him right when he starts to get hot.
2. Chris Johnson

When it comes to fantasy football draft busts, it really doesn't get any worse than Chris Johnson. While he's owned in virtually every fantasy league, he's only been able to rack up 45 yards over the course of the first three games with no TD's (per ESPN). He's hit rock bottom.
Fortunately, there's nowhere to go but up at this point for Johnson. You can get him for an unbelievable value given what he's capable of producing. If you get the right trade offer, don't be afraid to get him. You could be duly rewarded.
3. Kenny Britt

Kenny Britt is fresh off a 1-game suspension for off-the-field issues and looked really good last week, catching seven passes for 60 yards (per ESPN). While he's a huge off-the-field liability, he's one of the more talented receivers in the game, and when healthy and at his best, Britt's a terrific fantasy option.
His owners would likely be willing to let him go for a relatively low price, figuring that he's a wild card they'd prefer to get rid of. If you're in need to a receiver and don't mind a high risk/high reward guy, give Britt a glance.
4. BenJarvus Green-Ellis

I don't know what it is about this guy, but BenJarvus Green-Ellis never gets the respect he deserves in the fantasy football world. The guy is constantly consistent, and is always a solid back. This year he's rushed for over 200 yards and 2 TD's, very respectable numbers (Per ESPN).
The Law Firm should only continue to touch the ball more as the season goes on. He's currently being totally overlooked and undervalued, so you could probably get him as a "minor" piece in a bigger trade. If you can get him, don't hesitate, he's on his way to a 1,200 yard season.
