Now that we’re about a third of the way down the season, this introduction to the week 7 dynasty stock watch will focus on winning situations versus rebuilding. And here I take a hard line. If I’m going to tank, I’m going to tank so even the best player, plus I’ll try to move him to make sure I lose spectacularly (without benching my best players, because it’s tacky.)
So, if you are 3-3 or 2-4, I believe you are still there, apart from a couple of late season injuries that limit your potential. But I feel it’s not in most people’s DNA to accept that they have a losing team, even when their record reflects it. Maybe your team is in the top two or three for points scored and there have been some close-ups that could have been victories in several head-to-head matches. So, you have pink glasses while you check your team’s score on your phone all Sunday. And every time you check, your team somehow has one more point and your opponent has scored 20. Forget it; lay down your sword. We build for the future!
In my Dynasty Stock Watch from week 3, I wrote about the change from Tom Brady almost regardless of your team’s situation. He had a good rebound match in a week 4 defeat against Heads (39-52 for 385 and three scores). However, he is QB14 through six games. Chris GodwinThe comeback hasn’t turned on much yet.
The buccaneers they are last in the run and in the carry yards (405, 3.1). They don’t run over 20 yards. Can they turn it around? Of course, anything is possible. But they look mediocre and one-dimensional and that one (passing) dimension isn’t even that good. Porto Tampa Bay as an example of how to deal with and deal with a reconstruction.
If I had the Bucs roster in a dynasty league, Brady, Mike Evans And Leonard Fournette they are the commercial fodder. Godwin is 26, so I don’t mind keeping him as he should be three very productive years later this year. This is the window: three years. Any quarterback or tight end 33 or older, any running back 26 or older, and any catcher 27 or older is on the trading block. Of course, any player can be traded if someone is willing to spend too much, but that’s the overall blueprint.
And if I’m trading for young players, which should be rare since good young players have the greatest value, they must have a realistic chance of fantasy supremacy. Not just relevance, but a real blow to a top player in his position. You don’t want to trade for Allen Lazard, no disrespect intended. All acquired players must at least have the illusion of a really high ceiling. The guys who have been in the league for a couple of years and haven’t accomplished anything just devour the commercial value that should be devoted to leveraging capital.
So with all of that in mind, here are some high-selling veterans that rebuilds should trade in. And as I mentioned, if you’re rebuilding, any player stuck to these deals must be a first or second year player with legitimate potential to become a great player. We don’t need mediocrity to take capital in our operations!
WR Stefon DiggsBuffalo bills
Since we are in the middle of Josh Allen being at the top of his game, walking away from Stefon Diggs isn’t easy. And again, this is just a sales record due to these two factors: age and Allen peak. Diggs is commanding serious commercial value. Any decent team that were to acquire it would be an instant contender and it’s a straightforward takeover if it’s available. I believe Diggs is still two good years after this, but we are talking about a receiver who will soon be 29 (born 29-11-1993), who is one of the top 10 players in the dynasty by commercial value. 2.85 yards per course (Y / RR) this season was his career high. The wild thing is that Diggs has captured six of his nine targets beyond 20 yards. Gabe Davis it was the deep threat, but Diggs is still extremely efficient at both the intermediate and deep levels. However, it has to go and we are asking for at least two choices in the middle of the 1st round of 2023, plus a 2nd or third in 2023. Hover over the dots to see the recent Diggs operations.
WR Cooper KuppLos Angeles Rams
I know this seems obvious, as does Diggs’ recommendation. But the managers are stubborn. Exchange Cooper Kupp? Here’s what a reconstruction looks like. Kupp will turn 30 next year and is even more valuable than the aforementioned Diggs! The wheels came off in Los Angeles and while there is still a bright golden hue radiating from this guy. He has a touchdown in his last four games. The Rams are about to give up Cam Akers. They scored the fewest points in the NFC West. Things are not going well. Last year’s Super Bowl win and 3-3 record keep the illusion that all is well. And I understand the reluctance to move it. Kupp doesn’t seem to slow down. Kupp is the No. 2 in the PPR leagues, just behind Diggs. Kupp’s 2.45 Y / RR is well below his 2021 total (3.12), but it would still be his second-best rate. He is ready to force more wrong tackles and take more contested passes than last year. Basically I’m implying that the Rams are slowing down Kupp, not the other way around. Strike while the iron is hot and exchange it for a huge bounty. You should shoot for three 1st rounds of 2023. Hover over the dots to see Kupp’s recent operations.
RB Leonard FournetteTampa Bay Buccaneer
You may have thought I was going to suggest Christian McCaffrey in this article, but I feel it really embraces the age line. It means I think it’s only worth trading if you don’t have much else to offer. Fournette makes more sense, despite offering much less commercial value. For a team with a serious need for a running back, Fournette is a player of “set and forget it” caliber. That said, he’s not having a great year like I said in the introduction. He had six over 10-yard runs in week 1. He has four in his last five games. It’s not all his fault. The Bucs’ offensive line is not playing well and they have downplayed a player or two. But he’s also forcing fewer bad tackles. nearly half of his 2021 total. Even with all of that, I believe he orders a first and second value late in 2023. he Hover over the dots to see Fournette’s recent trades.
RB Nick ChubbCleveland Browns
The longer this season goes on, the more Nick Chubb’s worth will rise. He is playing so well and everyone knows it. Chubb is fundamentally unstoppable. He looked human against the Patriots in week 6, but this year he was the best in the league. Chubb is poised to smash his previous career record of forced missed tackles (66 in 2019 and 2020, 42 in 2022). He already has 21 runs from over 10 yards and his previous record was 41 in 2021. For a guy who averages 5.3 ypc in his career, his average of 5.9 this year is unreal. Perhaps most importantly, he already has seven quick touchdowns and his previous record was 12 in 2020. We can’t rely on touchdowns, but they help deliver groundbreaking scoring totals. I would try to haggle over the price here to pick up two 2023 first round picks of mid-tier or better. Hover over the dots to see Chubb’s recent trades.
