Tactical Transactions: Moves to Make Before Week Ten

Eric Hardter

2014 is universally recognized as something of a “great rookie reset.” A single class provided fantasy heavy hitters such as Odell Beckham, Mike Evans, Davante Adams, Brandin Cooks, Devonta Freeman, Allen Robinson, and Jarvis Landry. There were also ancillary pieces like Sammy Watkins, Jordan Matthews, Derek Carr, Kelvin Benjamin, Jeremy Hill, Jerick McKinnon, John Brown, and Logan Thomas. Oh, and of course Jeff Janis. In short, it was a cross-positional dynasty cornucopia.

2015 added on with Amari Cooper, Todd Gurley, Tyler Lockett, David Johnson and Melvin Gordon. 2020 had Justin Jefferson, Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa, Justin Herbert, Jonathan Taylor, D'Andre Swift, Tee Higgins, Michael Pittman, Bradon Aiyuk, Jalen Hurts and CeeDee Lamb.

The point is, every so often we see such an influx of talent that it fundamentally alters the dynasty landscape, effectively jamming up the early rounds and potentially yielding talent falling that otherwise wouldn’t. And some crazy how, this year might have them all beat.

Despite some spotty production, Bijan Robinson remains the dynasty RB1. Sam LaPorta has a legitimate argument for the dynasty TE1, with Dalton Kincaid now nipping at his heels after a few productive weeks. Jahmyr Gibbs, Jordan Addison and Zay Flowers are all in their respective RB1/WR1 tiers, or fairly close to them. And oh yeah, now there’s a guy who I’ll discuss below who may soon be the dynasty QB1.

The point is, things move at a lightning pace. There is assuredly room for a measured approach, but when it comes to rookies producing early in their careers the value window shuts quickly. Get in, get out, do what you need to do, but pace may be important!

Disclaimer! As you’re well aware by the fact you’ve come to a website entitled dynastyleaguefootball.com, we’re still taking a long view into account in addition to each player’s weekly (and year-to-date) output. Guidance will continue to take into account a player’s current stature in tools such as DLF’s ADP and rankings, in addition to how he’s performed.

One last note, as I’m referencing DLF ADP and rankings, advice herein is for a 12-team, non-superflex setting with full PPR scoring. Divergent league settings (both for starting positions and scoring) hopefully shouldn’t render this advice as not actionable, but it’s an important disclaimer nonetheless.

With that preamble in hand, here are the tactical transactions you should consider before week ten:
