Four Running Backs to Buy, Sell, or Hold in Dynasty Leagues

Scott Connor picks out some running back moves to make in your leagues.

As free agency brought many pieces of news, everything we knew is slowly changing. Mock draft season is coming to an end and we are close to getting the final piece to the player puzzle once the NFL Draft happens. This series will focus on that market pulse by highlighting players at each spot.

Here are running backs to watch before the NFL Draft:

Brian Robinson, WAS - Sell

This one seems obvious, but the reasoning may not be as clear. Ultimately, the dynasty community already acknowledges Robinson is likely exactly what he presents to be: an early-down grinder with limited pass-catching upside and largely dependent on his touchdowns and offensive efficiency to produce. His RB33 price tag reflects this.

However, the data suggests he is quite bad and in-time, should slowly lose work due to the team being unable to justify hammering him with as many touches as they did in 2022. His .0519 points per opportunity (targets plus rush attempts) ranks fourth worst over the past five years and despite these numbers, Washington still gave him more than 18 opportunities per game. Bet against this continuing.

The Move – The trick with Robinson is understanding what he is and resisting the urge to not “value the volume.” Volume without efficiency is replaceable and that is exactly how he should be treated. A trade away of Robinson must include leverage, which means moving him for a second-round pick plus another running back. I like Hassan Haskins, Jaylen Warren, or Zonovan Knight as an added piece to get the deal done.
