In this series, I will take a deep dive into one specific player’s current dynasty value. This can actually be quite a challenge considering player value in a dynasty league is impacted by everything to the weekly production during the season to decisions players make off the field in the spring and summer months.
Here at Dynasty League Football, we offer many tools to measure a player’s value and I’ll be using many of those in this article. Let’s dig in!
Second-year running back James Conner has wasted no time in taking advantage of the holdout of superstar back Le’Veon Bell. Conner had a strong preseason and then truly broke out in week one with nearly 200 total yards and two touchdowns. He’s truly the talk of the dynasty world. If this were a typical situation in which young backs explode onto the scene, nearly all dynasty players would be on board with aggressively buying Conner with eyes toward the remainder of the season and seasons to come.
In this case though, Conner has to look over his shoulder for a possible Bell return. The expectation is that Bell will regain his starting, workhorse role once he decides he wants to play again. That could be next week or as late as week ten. I expect Conner to cement his value with each passing week and strong performance, but unless we somehow learn that Bell will miss the entire season, there will be lingering questions about the value of both players.
