Dynasty Trade Targets: Players You Should Sell Now
Quarterback Trade Targets
Taysom Hill – New Orleans Saints
Taysom Hill is a quarterback, right? Joking, of course. Should he be listed as running back now? Taysom Hill is playing 30% of the snaps and putting up boom performances because of his gadget usage. Even with the low usage, his tight end position makes him someone worth playing each week.
The tight-end position is awful, and it is hard enough to get someone that you can trust weekly. There are very few tight ends that have the upside as Taysom Hill, and most have a similar floor. Take advantage of the market if he is an extra piece on your team.
Carson Wentz – Washington Commanders
Carson Wentz is a better fantasy football quarterback than he is in reality. This is fantasy football, and he was the 6th best fantasy quarterback last week. Carson Wentz is 8th on the season, and he was 13th last year with the Colts. Yes, last year with the Colts. Wentz is on his 3 rd team in just as many seasons.
There is nothing that guarantees the Commanders’ starting quarterback next year, not even his contract. The Commanders have an out in 2023 with $0 Dead Cap when the new league year starts. Wentz is someone you should be selling as he could end up a backup somewhere next year.
Jimmy Garoppolo – San Francisco 49ers
This offseason, we had plenty of quarterback movement, plenty of openings, and a bad draft class. Yet, the market was not very excited for Jimmy. The 49ers were very close to cutting him after they and he were unable to find a trade partner. Jimmy redid his contract, Trey Lance got hurt, and he has some value now. You probably can’t move him for as much as you would like, but he has some value now, and you should take advantage.
There is a possibility he is off somewhere next year. The Commanders were rumored to be interested, and the Buccaneers were as well. Don’t just give him away, but right now, people need points, and he is a starting quarterback. See what the market says and if you can get a good price, take it.
Running Back Trade Targets
David Montgomery – Chicago Bears
David Montgomery just came back from injury and, just like last year, went straight back to being a bell cow. Montgomery hasn’t been bad this year, and he is getting a rare amount of touches. There are a lot of committees and shared backfields, Montgomery’s high volume will be appealing when contenders are shopping. Montgomery is also a free agent in 2023; he could find himself in a committee next year if he is not brought back.
Austin Ekeler – Los Angeles Chargers
Austin Ekeler has been on a tear and has really rebounded from a slow start to the season. Ekeler has also been extremely efficient, scoring five touchdowns in just two weeks. Ekeler is still a 27-year-old running back, and if you could move Ekeler for Dameon Pierce or Kenneth Walker, you should. If you can get a 1 st or more for Ekeler. His value will not be the same next year, and his value is only going to decrease as the season continues. An injury for a 27-year-old running back would drain any value that he has left.
Alvin Kamara – New Orleans Saints
Alvin Kamara has missed a lot of time due to a rib injury, and he returned in a huge way. Kamara had 194 total yards as the Saints ran all over the Seahawks. Alvin Kamara has a potential suspension coming that could cause him to miss some time this year or next year. Kamara is also a 27-year-old dynasty running back. His stock is only going to go down from here; time to sell.
Dalvin Cook – Minnesota Vikings
Dalvin Cook has had an up-and-down 2022 season. Cook’s season has mostly been hampered by a shoulder injury that does seem to be getting better. The biggest concern is the new offense has him sharing much more work with Alexander Mattison. Cook is not getting the volume he has received in the past. Cook will be 28 when the season starts next year, and his backup Alexander Mattison will be a 25-year-old free agent.
Per Spotrac, the Vikings have a potential out in 2023 (3 YR, $27,284,650; $6,202,544 DEAD CAP.) Dalvin Cook could be on the roster bubble or a trade candidate while the team tries to find a way to pay Justin Jefferson.
Jeff Wilson – San Francisco 49ers
Jeff Wilson has looked great and has really become an every-week start. But starting running back Elijah Mitchell comes back soon. Wilson doesn’t have much value moving forward; he will be 27 before the season closes up. It is hard to find every week starts in this league; Wilson is someone you can move now. Look for the Mitchell owner and see if he wants Wilson now and insurance later.
Raheem Mostert – Miami Dolphins
Raheem Mostert has taken over this backfield, and if Edmonds weren’t vultering touchdowns, he would be a pretty solid fantasy play. But he is definitely the starter, and starting running backs always have value. Even if the value isn’t super high, you can get value from him now. You also know that Mostert has a history of injuries and might want to trade before it is too late.
Wide Receivers Trade Targets
Tyler Lockett – Seattle Seahawks
Tyler Lockett has been absolutely amazing and has actually been more consistent with Geno than he was with Russ. We are not seeing the huge boom weeks, but we not saying the ghost performances either. Tyler Lockett is still a 30-year-old wide receiver, and the quarterback situation is murky for next season. He may have opened up a small sell window; go take advantage.
Diontae Johnson – Pittsburgh Steelers
Diontae Johnson – Diontae Johnson is quickly becoming the 1b in Pittsburgh. Diontae Johnson has seven receptions and 71 yards over the last two weeks. The days of Ben Roethlisberger peppering him are behind him. George Pickens, over the span, has 12 catches and 195 yards.
Brandin Cooks – Houston Texans
Brandin Cooks – Brandin Cooks is quietly becoming the #2 in Houston. Nico Collins is becoming Davis Mills’ favorite target. Cooks has been one of the most consistent players at the position and one of the most underrated. But Cooks is a 29-year-old dynasty wide receiver, and his value is unlikely to improve. He did score a touchdown two weeks ago and is still perceived to be the #1; sell before they catch on.
JuJu Smith-Schuster – Kansas City Chiefs
I get it, you can’t sell high on JuJu when he has produced as much as he has, but he does play the Bills this week. See if someone has players on bye or injuries and is excited. There were high-profile fantasy analysts calling him the next Cooper Kupp as recently as last week. There has not been a clear-cut top wide receiver on a weekly basis, and someone in your league still thinks it will be Juju. There is also hope that he lands somewhere else next year.
Tight End Trade Targets
T.J. Hockenson – Detroit Lions
T.J. Hockenson is one of the final players in that middle tier of tight ends. Hockenson has the draft capital and name value that can bring home some good returns. I would wait for Hockenson to have a better game than last week, but trade him while he is still a top 3 tight end.
Dallas Goedert – Philadelphia Eagles
Dallas Goedert had a really nice game last week against Arizona, and he is the quietly tight end five of the year. Even though he is the 5th fantasy football tight end, he finished 14-7-9-10-and 4 this season. Only 1 top 5 performance and averaging only 12.7 points per week. This is a low pass-volume offense, and the majority of those few passes are going to Smith or Brown. Sell off a season-high and take advantage of a seller’s market.
Tyler Higbee – Los Angeles Rams
Tyler Higbee is a post-hype sleeper, as he disappointed last season coming off of a hot 2020 finish. Higbee has been a PPR machine, and his value continues to grow just because the tight ends are so bad. This is basic supply and demand; start-worthy tight-ends are not plenty. Trade him for more than he is worth because there is nothing else on the market.
