Dynasty Buy/Sell/Hold: NFC West

We pick out some players from the NFC West to buy, sell or hold.

Rondale Moore

We are nearing the crescendo of the NFL off-season. As such, the window for making final roster adjustments is drawing to a close.

In that spirit, I’ve selected players to buy, sell and hold for all 32 NFL teams. This miniseries will be broken down by division, with 12 players highlighted per article and 96 overall. In a 12-team league with 20 roster spots (similar to the DLF ADP), that accounts for 40% of the players!

Before we dive in, a few notes and disclaimers:

  • Player values were obtained from the combination of the most current ADP (pending the lead time necessary for authorship), and the DLF top-250 rankings;
  • The league paradigm is assumed to be PPR and 1QB (players in superflex and/or 2QB leagues would likely have some divergence from those I’ve selected);
  • Opinions on players are my own and do not represent all of DLF; and finally,
  • Exact player values are always going to be dependent on individual leagues and owners, and may not be consistent with the assertions provided herein.

With that said, let’s conclude with the NFC West! Players will be profiled individually, with a tabulated summary of all 12 provided at the article’s conclusion.

Arizona Cardinals

Buy: Michael Wilson, WR (ADP = 162.8, Rank = 220.6)

In a draft class full of Lilliputian receivers, Wilson stands as one of the few oversized, athletic pass catchers with day two (or better) draft capital.

As shown by his spider chart, Wilson displayed above-average measurables in height, weight, and explosion and burst metrics, while also showing elite strength. His 40-yard dash is nothing to write home about, but coupled with his stature ultimately yields an above-average speed score.

With the somewhat surprising release of DeAndre Hopkins, Wilson offers something different than mighty mites Marquise Brown and Rondale Moore. Unfortunately, what he lacks is their respective collegiate pedigrees – after a solid freshman season that saw him establish a breakout age of 19.5, Wilson only competed in 14 contests over the next three years. Drafting him requires a sizeable leap of faith, as an older prospect with severe gaps in his CV.

Still, I tend to gravitate to players whose real-life draft capital outweighs their perceived dynasty value. By ADP Wilson is going as the WR70, and in rookie drafts he’s going in the early fourth round despite his stature as a third-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. As a likely starter, albeit on a bad passing offense, these present as reasons to buy.

Sell: Rondale Moore, WR (ADP = 127.5, Rank = 124.5)

Like most of the choices in this one but the one I’m not sure about is James Conner. As you’ve pointed out he’s already 28 and in six years in the league, has yet to play a full season. I doubt that changes this year. And considering how the season most likely will go for the Cardinals, leaning more on Conner makes me think he’s just that much more susceptible to injury. I would have added a caveat that if somehow Conner puts together a string of a couple good games in a row, sell – get out; get whatever value you can at the time for him. Yes, I agree he usage will approach a solid level and there will be decent output, that output is sure to not last.

He could surprise, and for his sake, I hope he does. I’m not hating on him, I just think that what will draw people to him, his near stranglehold on RB touches for the offense, will ultimately be his undoing and I think that undoing will happen sooner, quicker, than most would like for it to happen..

On Kenneth Walker… what should you reasonably expect in return for him? If you are buying, what’s the most you are willing to give up?
