There are few things as predictably anti-climactic in all of major pro sports as the NFL trading deadline. Every season, we hear plenty of names of guys who could change addresses and rarely does it ever happen. It re-defines the idea of all smoke and no fire.
Thankfully, the fantasy trade market isn’t nearly as uneventful. But the deadline to make fantasy deals is coming soon, and with teams jockeying for postseason position, the Social (Fantasy) Network wants to take a peek inside your war rooms. So we asked question: Who are you targeting before the fantasy trade deadline?
Apparently some of you are aiming high. Just be prepared to pay through the nose.

Certainly in this new football world order, wide receivers seem to be in high demand.
Trying to find a way to get Jordy Nelson on my roster before the trade deadline. Great QB. Great RoS. #SocialFantasy—

Dez Bryant. It's November for Tony Romo. #SocialFantasy—

By the way, I love this reasoning. I would have loved it even more if someone was trying to deal Wes Welker because Peyton Manning struggles in cold weather. Alas, that would just be silly. However, plenty of you are finding guys to put up on the trading block.

Uh, yeah. Let me know how that works out for you. This tweet, I suspect, came from Michael Fabiano running a dummy account.

Then again, if this is your dilemma, you might want to start thinking about the future … like this guy.

This week, the last word goes to Avi, who knows what he wants to do. But if he tells us, he’ll have to kill us.

You know your weekly column has made it when people are worried about spilling their secrets, lest it backfire on them. Or this was some expert-level trolling. Either way … bravo, sir.
is there someone you’re targeting that didn’t make our list this week? Hit us up in the comment section and let us know. And as always, keep an eye out for next week’s #SocialFantasy question. Happy Week 9 everybody!
