Dynasty Fantasy Football: 8 Players to Buy and Sell

5 min read

 

Whether it was from free agency, player releases/cuts, or the NFL Draft, this offseason has been full of surprises. Now that most of the dust has settled, we have a pretty good idea how these NFL rosters will look for the 2024 season. With that being said, our writers have put together a list of players that they’re buying and selling in dynasty leagues.

Dynasty Fantasy Football: 8 Players to Buy and Sell

 

 

Which players are you buying in dynasty leagues, and what are you willing to give for them?

 

Jahan Dotson

Dotson had a promising rookie year, but injuries cut it short from being a real breakout. There was hope for the offense last year, but bad offensive line play limited all the playmakers.

Curtis Samuel is gone, and I think with Jayden Daniels, it will be more wide-open, and Dotson can be a top-30 WR. I would be willing to give up a second-round rookie pick or a running back with a short-starting opportunity like Zamir White or Zack Moss.

Kyler Murray

A player I’ve been targeting in dynasty is Kyler Murray. He seems to be a forgotten commodity and continues to slide in dynasty rankings. The new blood of quarterbacks like Caleb Williams and Jayden Daniels entering the league has only pushed Murray down even more. Many have forgotten that he was an elite option from 2020-2022.

Murray finished as the QB3 in fantasy points per game in 2020, QB4 in 2021, and QB8 in 2022 while dealing with injuries. His top receiving options were DeAndre Hopkins, Hollywood Brown, and Zach Ertz during that time. Now that he is over a year removed from his ACL injury, I fully expect Murray to return to elite rushing production moving forward. Now, add Marvin Harrison Jr., Trey McBride, and an ascending Michael Wilson to the table.

Currently, the consensus ranking on Murray is around QB11-QB12. Given his top 5-6 upside, I would gladly offer Brock Purdy, Tua Tagovailoa, or Jared Goff, along with a late second or third to acquire Muray. If I were a Jayden Daniels owner, I would offer Daniels for Murray plus a second or an impact player.

Najee Harris

As the RB25 and with new OC Arthur Smith, you should expect Harris to be a top 15 play at running back. Smith has proven to play multiple backs in Bijan Robinson and Tyler Allgeier.

Also, when he has a bell-cow and established back, he will ride that hand in Derrick Henry. You can trade Harris for a third-round pick and be very happy with the production you will get this year.

Zamir White

As we approach the summer, Zamir White still has minimal buzz. I’d like to know why he hasn’t generated more interest. Once White took over as the primary running back for the Raiders (Week 15), he was the ninth-ranked running back in fantasy football. This was highlighted by his Week 16 explosion against the Kansas City Chiefs, in which he had 22 rushing attempts for 145 yards.

The only knock on White is his lack of touchdowns, and it is a fair criticism. However, with the additions of Alexander Mattison, Ameer Abdullah, and Dylan Laube, the Raiders appear to be handing White the full-time spot. With that opportunity comes the potential to explode onto the fantasy football scene. Grab White now before managers realize he has little competition in Las Vegas for touches.

Which players are you selling in dynasty leagues, and what are you looking to get in return for them?

 

De’Von Achane

I like De’Von Achane, and he is a big play waiting to happen. However, I worry that he will never consistently get a full workload. I am not sure Achane can stay healthy for a whole season, and the Dolphins brought back Raheem Mostert and drafted Jaylen Wright from Tennessee.

Achane was a top 10 RB five times last year, but in three of those, his yards per carry was over 10. In another, he had two touchdowns. I think Achane depends on big plays too much. I would be willing to sell him for rookie Marshawn Lloyd and a receiver such as Josh Downs. I think there is just as much potential and get two starters.

Josh Jacobs

Josh Jacobs is a player I’m actively shopping in the leagues I own him in. He is still considered an RB1, even though his production slips. Jacobs finished last in yards per carry last season out of 23 running backs with 200+ carries. He also finished as the RB18 in fantasy points per game.

In fact, in Jacobs’ five seasons, 2022 was the only season where he finished as an RB1 in fantasy points per game. He’s still a solid RB2, but not an RB1. With that being said, right now is the perfect time to shop him. It’s the offseason, and everyone thinks they have a chance. Which keeps running back prices at a premium.

During the season, running back prices tend to drop when non-competing teams try to unload aging players for future draft picks. During your negotiations, make sure you bring up that 2022 season and Green Bay’s explosive offense. I would try to swap for another running back like Isiah Pacheco, Jonathan Brooks, or Trey Benson. I would even consider adding a future second-round pick to get one of those running backs.

I’m smashing accept if I could get a future first-round pick. Either way, at age 26, this is the time to sell.

C.J. Stroud

I am selling C.J. Stroud, especially if I am in a 1 QB league because there are by far not 12 QBs better than him, and I can still get a first out of it. In Superflex, if I have two viable starters, Stroud and a top-five player, you could probably get multiple firsts or a first and second and be happy.

We have found the ceiling in Stroud’s rookie season. He will only get cheaper after this season because of the expectation of his rookie stats. If he doesn’t produce, his selling price goes down.

Jalen Hurts

Earlier, I wrote an article that highlighted my concerns about Jalen Hurts. He is now on his third Offensive Coordinator in as many years. Yes, Hurts has elite weapons in AJ Brown and DeVonta Smith. However, he must have the chemistry to make an elite offense work. I am not confident that Hurts has that chemistry with anyone on the team to continue being a top-three producer at quarterback.

He can’t just rely on his ability to scramble. To maintain their “top tier” productivity, quarterbacks must evolve as passers, and I’m not sold on Hurts being ready to grow. It’s important to remember that, in fantasy football, we’re not playing based on a player’s past performance. We’re making decisions based on what we think they can bring to the table this year.

This is a key principle to consider when considering Jalen Hurts’ future potential. New system. Reworked offensive line. I’ll sell high on him now and reap the benefits of the package I get in return for years.
