Wow. What a day of news! I’m sure many of you, like me, have been glued to news networks and social media for the last few hours attempting to get your head around it all. First, the NFL finally laid down the law by suspending star sophomore Ezekiel Elliot for six games, and next, two huge trades were made that will have a massive impact in the dynasty world.
🚨 TRADE ALERT 🚨#Rams acquire WR Sammy Watkins from the Bills.

That makes it three of the top stars from that strong 2014 receiving class moving to new teams this summer (the other being Brandin Cooks and his move to New England). The Watkins deal in particular is a dynasty game-changer, so let’s attempt to make some sense of how it impacts players in dynasty leagues.
