We all know the pain of holding onto that stud player too long as their production evaporates and your once highly-priced asset is essentially worthless. There are also plenty of cases of players being sold expecting that decline only to go on defying the odds. This series will examine what you should do as players approach these decision points.
Kyle Pitts, TE ATL
He was the greatest tight-end prospect ever to come out in the draft and had one of the greatest rookie seasons from a tight end ever. It was inevitable that, at some point, Pitts would disappoint. However, a combination of injuries, horrific quarterback play, and a run-first offense have rubbed off the shine, and his dynasty value started to fall.
So is now the perfect opportunity to buy the dip, or was he overhyped to begin with?
After all the hype Pitts saw before he'd even stepped on the field as a rookie, the start of his rookie season started as a disappointment. In his first four games, he only broke double-digit points once. However, in week five, he played in London against the Jets and broke out in a big way to the tune of 26.9 points. From that point until the end of the fantasy season, he was the TE4 in points, averaging 11.7 points per game - all the while not scoring another touchdown after that week five performance.
