Three Dynasty Fantasy Football Trades To Make Right Now

Three Dynasty Fantasy Football Trades To Make Right Now

Three Dynasty Fantasy Football Trades You Can Make Right Now

A large part of the reason why we all play dynasty fantasy football is to participate in dynasty fantasy football trades. One of the great things about this game that requires projecting players entire careers is that leaguemates can arrive at very different evaluations of players. This creates a fertile group for dynasty fantasy football trades, as does the fact that not every team in a given dynasty league has the same goals at the same time. As such, after a quick scan through the several dynasty leagues that I play in, I identified a few trades that should apply to most of the NFL365 readers.

Buy Mike Evans for a WR2 + 2019 First Round Pick

For a multitude of reasons, Mike Evans is underrated compared to his peers. He is ranked outside of the first-round by the Expert Consensus on Fantasy Pros despite five straight 1,000+ yard seasons and 40 touchdowns in five seasons. Evans has a legit argument to be ranked just as highly as Deandre Hopkins or Michael Thomas and should certainly be ahead of Davante Adams (aging QB) and Julio Jones (entering age 30 season). Evans also has an upgrade in offensive coordinator and lost some target competition with DeSean Jackson leaving town. Evans had 138 and 136 targets the last two seasons; I would wager on the OVER on those targets looking at the Buccaneers coaching staff and roster composition.

Evans being slightly undervalued by the market creates a buying opportunity. I would certainly take Evans over Josh Jacobs, N’Keal Harry or any other 2019 rookie pick candidate. Adding a WR2 to the mix gives the owner you are targeting a replacement for Evans in their starting lineup. Allen Robinson, Jarvis Landry or even Courtland Sutton are all WR2-level players that I would include in a potential deal to get Evans on my dynasty fantasy football team. Buying a superstar in dynasty fantasy football trades is generally tough but this could get the deal done.

Sell James Conner for Kenny Golladay + 2019 Second Round Pick

James Conner was fantastic for fantasy football last season. Those of us who were lucky enough to grab him in multiple leagues or already own him in dynasty formats felt blessed. Conner had 215 carries and 71 targets in 13 games which is a true RB1 pace. There are a few things that give me pause for his long term value though. The first is that he is not really a special athlete or player. Conner ran a 4.65 40 and posted an 11.72 agility score at the combine. He’s really just an average NFL running back (unlike Le’Veon Bell was) who could lose his job to injury or poor performance. The second is that the Steelers drafted another average athlete running back who profiles very similar to Conner. Benny Snell was also slow at the combine and didn’t catch many passes in college. This is not an endorsement of Snell but rather an acknowledgment that Conner has competition in the plodding running back department.

Kenny Golladay is one of my first buy targets. He was mired in the absolute molasses that was the 2018 Detroit Lions offense last year and while it doesn’t seem that the Lions are poised to take a leap, I think Golladay can individually. He’s going into 2019 as the unquestioned WR1 for the Lions who have a new offensive coordinator and elite blocking tight end who can hopefully draw a few safeties away from Golladay’s side. 2019 has a chance to be Babytron’s true breakout year and I want to be early rather than late to that party.

Trade an RB3 For Dede Westbrook

Every dynasty team has RB3’s that they’ve been holding on to for three years, waiting for their opportunity to find the starting lineup. Dont’a Foreman, Dion Lewis, Jamaal Williams, Mike Davis, Josh Adams, and Peyton Barber are all players that I would include in this discussion. They all have some dynasty value due to their situation but you would almost never feel comfortable starting any of them in a 12-team PPR league. Turning these sorts of players into a startable wide receiver is something I am trying to do this offseason.

Westbrook is the clear WR1 in terms of targets in Jacksonville. D.J Chark and Keelan Cole (or Marquise Lee) are likely to be the other wide receiver starters. Westbrook lead the Jaguars in targets last season and the second and third players in target share are off the team now (Donte Moncrief and T.J Yeldon). It is not often that a 100-target wide receiver is ranked in the 40’s in the Expert Consensus ranks on FantasyPros but that is where Westbrook is. He is one of my main dynasy fantasy football trades targets of this entire offseason.
