One of the best ways to improve a roster is by making savvy Fantasy football trades, selling high on overrated players and buying low on undervalued assets. Fantasy football injuries can also force owners into making trades, especially when high-profile players like Aaron Rodgers and J.K. Dobbins suffered season-ending injuries in Week 1. Knowing which players to target with optimal Fantasy football trade values is key. Losing a player like Rodgers might feel like an unrecoverable event, but a Fantasy football trade can put you right back on track. Which players should you target? Before you offer any Fantasy football trades, be sure to check out the Week 2 Fantasy football trade targets from SportsLine Fantasy and DFS expert Jimmie Kaylor.

Now, Kaylor has turned his attention to the 2023 NFL fantasy football season and locked in Week 2 Fantasy football trade targets. Head to SportsLine now to see the top Fantasy football buy-low and sell-high candidates for Week 2.
Top Week 2 Fantasy football buy-low, sell-high candidates
One of Kaylor's top buy-low candidates is San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk. A first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Aiyuk looked like a future No. 1 receiver at the end of his rookie season, but found himself in the doghouse with the coaching staff the following season.
Aiyuk had a breakout campaign in 2022, catching 78 passes for 1,015 yards and eight touchdowns. Last week, he led the 49ers in targets (eight), receptions (eight), receiving yards (129) and scored twice. He's starting to look more like the No. 1 option in San Francisco's passing attack. With Aiyuk ascending in a dynamic offense, Kaylor advises jumping on any straight-up trade for a high-end RB3, WR2 or second-tier TE1.
He's also advising Fantasy football managers to sell high on Titans running back Derrick Henry, who is coming off a 63-yard performance in Week 1. While volume has not been an issue for Henry during his time in Tennessee, the offense is continuing to be far too one-dimensional. He had 15 carries for just 63 yards and zero touchdowns in Week 1, averaging 4.2 yards per carry.
Quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 16 of 34 passes for 198 yards and three interceptions, turning in one of the worst performances of his career. Tannehill's struggles correlate directly with Henry's Fantasy numbers, as opposing defenses can stack the box. There is still trade value with Henry early in the season, but that value could disappear if you wait too long to deal him.
