Fantasy Football Week 10: 4 Players to Trade Away Now
Every week, a good fantasy football owner should look across the rosters in their league and see who the best sell-high or buy-low candidates are. If you have someone on your team who you think is a great sell-high player, then by all means try and get a trade done with someone else for a great deal.
So, here are four players that are at the top of their game right now, and are great options to trade.

Chris Johnson started off the season extremely poorly, with many of his owners dumping him in trades that they'll look back on sourly. Johnson has had a good stretch of games and has been getting back to the form those who drafted him expected.
Johnson could very easily relapse back to his old form, so if you're able to unload him right now, then don't hesitate to do so. You'll probably get a great deal for him.
2. Doug Martin

Doug Martin just had an absolute monster of a game on Sunday. Martin's quickly establishing himself as an elite fantasy football RB, and that's a great thing for his owners. However, if your team is struggling and you need more pieces to make a playoff push, then perhaps Martin is a guy you should look to trade.
Martin is at the top of his value right now, and if you can get a great deal for him, then go ahead and do it. He won't have many more huge games this season, or at least there's no way he can keep up this level of production.
3. Carson Palmer

Carson Palmer has quietly been having a solid fantasy season up to this point. Palmer continued that yesterday, throwing for over 400 yards, with four TD's and 3 INT's. Palmer's not a great fantasy option, but at this point he's at his apex in terms of "selling high."
If there's someone in your league who has a sub-par QB situation, and you have Palmer as your backup, maybe see if they want to get a deal done.
4. Steven Jackson

Steven Jackson was the talk of a lot of trade rumors over the past couple of weeks, but lately that's died down for the most part. Still, Jackson's been severely underperforming this year for his owners (I'm one of them).
Jackson still has name recognition though, and if you can get someone to give you a decent player for him, take the deal. It appears his time as a top-tier fantasy RB may be just about over.
