We are now in the final playoff-push portion of the fantasy football season. Player values have solidified, and draft day cost no longer matters when valuing players.

Unraveling all that we saw in Week 13 and translating it into Week 14 RB trade targets is where fantasy managers can differentiate themselves. To help you get your head around it all, here are our thoughts on some running backs to buy low or sell high entering Week 14.

Which RBs Should You Trade for in Fantasy Football?

Austin Ekeler, Los Angeles Chargers

I am definitely worried that Austin Ekeler, at the age of 28, is beginning to decline. He looks slower and less explosive, and the performance backs it up. With that said, Ekeler is not this bad.

Ekeler has been victimized by some rough matchups and poor touchdown luck. Three of the Chargers’ next four games are against bottom-six run defenses.

Before this three-game stretch of disappointment, Ekeler scored 20+ in three straight weeks. The upside still exists. If you can find a way to buy him very cheap with the playoffs on deck, creating a scenario where you really can’t lose the trade, do it.

D’Andre Swift, Philadelphia Eagles

It was another disappointing outing for D’Andre Swift. He carried the ball six times for 13 yards while catching just two passes for seven yards.

The performance is disappointing, but Swift remains the Philadelphia Eagles’ RB1. And the schedule is about to get nice.

Next week, they see the Dallas Cowboys. After that, for the fantasy playoffs, Swift plays three bottom-10 run defenses. We could see some really big games from Swift during the most important weeks of the season. If you can get him now, go for it.

Which RBs Should You Trade Away in Fantasy Football?

James Conner, Arizona Cardinals

Since returning from injured reserve, James Conner has been incredibly underwhelming. His best game before Week 13 was 8.3 fantasy points. Against the Steelers, Conner exploded for 102 yards on 25 carries and two touchdowns. This is the perfect opportunity to sell him.

First and foremost, the Cardinals are on a bye next week. If you have a win-and-in scenario, Conner isn’t helping you.

Secondly, the Cardinals’ playoff schedule is brutal. Two of their three matchups are against the San Francisco 49ers and Eagles, two of the best run defenses in the NFL.

In the past, Conner has supplemented his fantasy value with receiving work. That has not been the case this season, as Conner hasn’t even been targeted in two of his four games and has a total of six receiving yards since returning.

This game was very likely a fluke. Trade him if you can.

David Montgomery, Detroit Lions

The only game in which David Montgomery hasn’t scored a touchdown this season is the game in which he injured his ribs. That’s been great for fantasy managers, but it’s a risky game to play.

Montgomery is a complete zero in the passing game. Since returning from injury, he has a total of three catches on five targets. Montgomery will need to continue his touchdown-scoring ways to maintain usefulness. It would be prudent to try and sell him as an RB1 if you can.

Should You Trade David Montgomery for Austin Ekeler?

The answer to this question depends entirely on how the Ekeler manager values him. If the Ekeler manager is still clinging to Ekeler’s draft-day value, this isn’t going to work. The only way a trade of Montgomery for Ekeler would be viable is if the Ekeler manager is willing to value Montgomery above Ekeler.

If you can sell Montgomery for Ekeler and another piece, I would definitely be willing to take that chance, especially since I believe Montgomery is a bit of a mirage right now. But if you have to add a piece to Montgomery to get Ekeler, then just hang onto Montgomery.

Should You Trade Kyren Williams for D’Andre Swift?

I am very confident better days are ahead for Swift. But Kyren Williams is truly an elite RB1 by every sense of the term.

Williams is looking like prime Todd Gurley out there. I really don’t know how he’s doing it, but Williams is touching the ball 20+ times a game. He has a monopoly on the goal-line role. He only comes off the field for about one drive a half — he is the end game. When you have a player like Williams, there is nothing better. If you have him, you don’t give him up.
