Welcome to the Dynasty Trading Post! This series will highlight the trading tools we have for our DLF subscribers. We’ll use the DLF Trade Finder to look at actual trades that took place in dynasty leagues hosted on myfantasyleague.com, check in with the DLF Trade Analyzer to see what it thinks, and then discuss those deals. One caveat to mention is that the Trade Analyzer value of a player changes constantly, so all values discussed were at the time of writing. If you have a trade you’d like addressed in this space, please reach out to @MattPriceFF on Twitter!
We all know it’s wise to hold on to draft picks as long as possible because they generally increase in value as we get closer to rookie drafts. We’re now within a week of the NFL Draft, so it's time to start thinking about what we could potentially get for our 2022 rookie picks and decide if we want to add a known asset to our squads or make the pick and embrace the unknown upside of our rookie selection.
Let’s look at the value of some draft picks according to the Dynasty Trade Analyzer, compare them to the value of veterans around that pick, and finally, use the Dynasty Trade Finder to see actual trades that have recently taken place in dynasty leagues.
One of my favorite things you can do with the trade analyzer is to view the asset values all in one place. The drop-down menus are great for inputting actual trades or comparing specific values, but sometimes you just want to check out a player and every other asset in his orbit. You can also download them into a CSV file to play with the data yourself.
Using the view all values feature, let’s look at the value of the 1.01 in superflex leagues and see its value compared to the players above and below the pick.
