Dynasty Fantasy Football Trades
Taking advantage of potential valuation trends in the trade market is imperative. That is even more true during the season when players can experience wild valuation changes on a week-to-week basis. Each week, I will be highlighting some players you should be looking to move or acquire and the reasons why:
Buy - Jordan Love, QB GB
Love's value has been a rollercoaster this year. After a hot but unsustainable start, he went through a challenging period before recently putting together a fantastic four-game stretch. We're now in a position where he has played well enough that he will be the Packers' starting quarterback for at least the medium-term future. Because he signed a short-term extension rather than playing on the fifth-year option, he has a very low $7.75m cap hit next year. This low cap hit will give the Packers a lot of leverage to sign him to a longer-term extension this off-season. Love already showed a reticence to bet on himself last off-season so that he could sign a below-market extension in the Daniel Jones to Geno Smith range of $25m to $40m per year. The second he signs that extension, his dynasty value will increase significantly.
He is currently the QB19 in our November ADP, but I expect that to increase when the December AD is released. He is currently my QB14, but with a long-term extension, he could be knocking on the top 12. If you can use this window of uncertainty about his future to buy high, it will still return on the investment despite buying off the back of solid performances. Currently performing as the QB9, he could be a cornerstone of a contending Superflex roster as your QB2. I would happily pay multiple first-round picks to secure him, but the best move is to pivot off a quarterback like Russell Wilson or Geno Smith, who is producing but aging. You could add a first, buy back years, and increase your long-term production.
Buy - Chuba Hubbard, RB CAR
