Trading Post - Week 11

Team A:
Traded away WR Travis Benjamin (#17)

Team B:
Traded away WR Jordan Matthews (#36)

Braxton's Take:
Interesting trade here between the DC bread buddies. Travis Benjamin started off the season real hot with four touchdowns and 249 yards over the first three games. That averaged out to more than 20 fantasy points per game during the three week span. Since that time, the Browns have only been able to win one game and Benjamin's fantasy value has been limited. Over the last four games, Benjamin has only scored more than 3.55 fantasy points once. In addition to a bye week coming up, Travis Benjamin's fantasy value is up in the air, but it was nice to see Johnny Manziel connect well with Benjamin in week 10 for 113 yards on 11 targets. 

Jordan Matthews started off well in the Eagles offense with 102 yards in week one and 80 yards plus a touchdown in week two. Since then, Matthews wasn't able to exceed five fantasy points until week nine where he went off for 133 yards and a touchdown. With a really favorable schedule the next six weeks, Matthews should have a few more good games before finishing the year. Overall, this trade is a win for Team B because Travis Benjamin should have been able to bring more value to the trade than another wide receiver ranked outside the top 35.
