Four Wide Receivers to Buy, Sell, or Hold in Dynasty Leagues

We examine the dynasty situations of four players and how to approach them.

Drake London

As we proceed through the NFL playoffs and into the dynasty off-season, reflection on the past year and constantly finding a market pulse on the current player landscape is crucial. Information is constantly changing and the dynasty values will move in lock-step with it. This series will focus on that market pulse by highlighting players at each spot. Here are four wide receivers to take note of before the Super Bowl:

Drake London, WR ATL - Buy

There is no doubt that London had a fantastic rookie season. Unfortunately, many are only looking at his fantasy numbers and they might not appreciate it. After all, he finished outside of the top 40 in points per game and was seemingly a weekly disappointment for most managers who had him in a lineup. However, looking deeper, you see a player with an elite profile (former first-round pick) and one who finished in the top five in target share and sixth in targets per route run. Furthermore, he finished in the top 25 in yards per route run and air yards share. He was the complete package, joining only 12 other players to end the year with these marks. Address the quarterback position with someone more efficient and London is the best buy in dynasty.

The Move – Do not get it wrong, he will not be cheap. However, he is arguably as good or better than Chris Olave or Garrett Wilson and belongs in the mix with Jaylen Waddle, DeVonta Smith, Tee Higgins, Amon-Ra St. Brown, or anyone else you might put in the mix as a “tier two” wide receiver. Do what it takes to acquire him and find potential pivots at the position to get it done.

Definitely like London as a buy as well, made it a point to acquire him in one league (got him for Najee). Pickens as a still will be a hot take for a lot of people, but his efficiency metrics admittedly give me pause as well on putting him too high.

I’m not sure about that comment though regarding yards per route run being more related to QB then the WR. I don’t think that’s right. Pff has done all kinds of work about how sticky that stat is, and it feels like there’s tons of examples out their of WRs switching teams to sub par qbs and still producing like they were (Tyreek, davante, aj brown, diggs,). There’s also plenty of examples of players excelling in this stat despite poor QBs (Olave, London, Wilson sort of, terry mclaurin, etc).

Would love to get my hands on London. I’m in a rebuild and was offered: London, 1.12, and 2024 1st(which will likely be LATE, considering he’s the champ, and getting Bijan) for my 1.01(Bijan). Is that good enough package for Bijan?

If you’re in a rebuild that genuinely could be a package that is worth it, as long as it’s a 3wr league. I know the firsts are late, but London will have a longer shelf life than Bijan most likely, and the 24 1st isn’t likely to be worse than the 1.09, by odds. You’ll definitely get a solid player at 1.12 this year too, could easily be a good RB or even the best QB/TE of the bunch. It probably doesn’t feel like a total smash, but if you are lacking top end assets as is (especially at WR), it might make more sense to reduce long term risk and even possibly maximize your draft capital a bit for next year. I’m in a rebuild as well with the 1.01, 1.06, 1.08, and 1.12, and am debating if I’m ready to gear up for competing or not.
