Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans is rarely mentioned among the top receivers of his generation, but the 10th-year veteran has already piled up an NFL record nine consecutive 1,000-yard seasons to begin his career and is targeting Jerry Rice's record of 11. Despite losing Tom Brady to retirement in the offseason, Evans has looked comfortable with new starter Baker Mayfield and has put up strong numbers. He has 12 catches for 237 yards and two touchdowns, but should you target him in Week 3 Fantasy football trades?
Having a trustworthy list of buy-low and sell-high candidates can you ensure that you're getting maximum return on all your Fantasy football trade values.

Now, Kaylor has turned his attention to the 2023 NFL fantasy football season and locked in Week 3 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 3 Fantasy football buy-low, sell-high candidates
One of Kaylor's top buy-low candidates is Bills running back James Cook. The Georgia product averaged 5.7 yards per carry and 8.6 yards per reception during his rookie season, but only played in 24.8% of Buffalo's snaps.
However, the second-round pick is now the top running back in a loaded offense and he's coming off the best game of his career. Cook carried the ball 17 times for 123 and also caught all four of his targets for 36 yards. Kaylor says there's potential to get RB1 production out of Cook the rest of the way at the cost of a high-end WR2, TE1 or low-end QB1.
Kaylor is also advising Fantasy football managers to sell high on Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes ranks fifth among Fantasy football quarterbacks through two weeks and should remain among the top options at the position despite questions about his supporting cast. However, you likely drafted Mahomes in the first three rounds hoping for significantly more production, there is more value from an RB1 or WR1.
"Mahomes was among my sell-high candidates last week, and despite a better performance in Week 2 (305 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT), he's staying there this week as well," Kaylor told SportsLine. "With a supporting cast that features a depleted wide receiver group, an aging Travis Kelce, and a mediocre offensive line, I have a much lower fantasy ceiling for Mahomes for the remainder of the season."
