This is Dynasty Trades to Make RIGHT NOW for WIN NOW Teams

Mike Evans WR | Tampa Bay Buccaneers 

Trading for a 30-year-old WR in Dynasty? Yes, this is one of the dynasty trades worth making. Evans was arguably the best WR value in all of fantasy in 2023. He exploded out the gate with three consecutive games with TD receptions and finished the season with an NFL-leading 13. He did this in his first season with Baker Mayfield at QB. Evans’s rise also led to career highs from Mayfield in passing yardage and TD passes. Mayfield leaned on Evans all season long, and the results were terrific.

Expecting a regression simply because of Evans’ age is the wrong approach. Evans has multiple outs to be in as good a situation or better in 2024. Evans is an impending Free Agent. The most logical landing spot is Tampa Bay, paying him a massive contract to finish his illustrious career as a Tampa Bay Buccaneer. If that happens, expect more of the same target share and an identical offensive role. But what are Evans signs elsewhere? Expect there to be a long line of teams who view Evans as the missing piece to a deep playoff run. What if Evans lands in Kansas City, Buffalo, or another high-powered offense with an elite signal caller? 

Dynasty managers continue to need help with valuing veteran WRs. There will be plenty of them who view Evans as an easy must-sell. As a result, he’s one of the dynasty trades I’m recommending people make this offseason. Pounce on this uncertainty and make a calculated offer. 

Jordan Love QB | Green Bay Packers

When it comes to dynasty trades, quarterback can be tricky. Quick, which player is currently QB5 Overall, trailing only Josh Allen, Jalen Hurts, Lamar Jackson, and Dak Prescott? The answer is Jordan Love. Love had a sensational first season at the helm in Green Bay. He passed for 30 TDs with only 11 interceptions and added four rushing TDs. What is most impressive is that this was a transition season for the Packers’ offense, with two rookie TEs and multiple WRs in their first and second seasons in the league. 

At only 25 years old, Love still has considerable upside when viewing his near and long-term future. Green Bay could also add even more firepower to their receiving corps this offseason, adding to their group of multiple players who have gained invaluable experience.

Does the market value match up with where Love is in terms of on-field production and long-term potential? Love is continually ranked as a QB2-level player. The days of seeing him ranked as a low-end QB2 are over, but few analysts or websites are flag planting him as a potential long term QB1. This is a miss pricing that savvy Dynasty managers could take advantage of. In Superflex formats, Love offers more instant value and production than any impending Free Agent or 2024 Rookie. 

Tank Dell WR | Houston Texans

Dell was sensational this season in Houston. He had six games with over 17 PPR points scored in only 11 games as a pro and averaged 15 points per game- an elite number for a rookie. No one dislikes Dell, but there is a disconnect between his age, role and on field production, and his dynasty value. Despite the potential for elite fantasy production in 2024, the vibes are not there with Dell. Therefore, trading for Dell is one of the dynasty trades I’m recommending. 

There is a Dell buying window in Dynasty, and it is right now. Several factors will keep Dell’s price semi-affordable. Some managers will always have injury apprehension, especially regarding a younger player like Dell. Other managers still do not honestly buy in on Dell as a high-end Dynasty value, but rather a perfect storm of production that cannot maintain the fantasy output he displayed. Nico Collins incredible play has also cooled the Dell enthusiasm. Some view Collins and Dell as a 1A/1B scenario. 

The Dell enthusiasm will pick up after clips of a healthy and fully recovered Dell emerge this offseason. Take advantage of this time frame and make a calculated offer to attain one of the NFL’s most exciting young players. 

Jake Ferguson TE | Dallas Cowboys 

Sometimes, fantasy football, and by extension dynasty trades, do not have to be complicated. Dak Prescott‘s primary TE fantasy finishes over the past four seasons: TE11 in 2020, TE3 in 2021, TE10 in 2022, and TE9 in 2023. It did not matter that it was Jake Ferguson‘s first year with a full-time role. Ferguson not only filled in for the departed Dalton Schultz, but he outproduced him. 

Ferguson finished as a TE1 and was one of Prescott’s preferred targets all season long. He finished with 65 catches on 96 targets and five TDs. The 24-year-old could have had an even bigger season in 2024. His 24 Red Zone targets led all TEs. 

There is no reason that Ferguson cannot put up similar or better numbers in 2024. Despite being a second-year player, the market is not enthusiastic about Ferguson as a long-term high-end asset at one of fantasy football’s most tricky positions. 

Jonathan Taylor RB | Indianapolis

This is a push the chips in type move. If you want a dynasty trade article recommending some cheap player that you can obtain for a 2024 third-round rookie pick, you have come to the wrong place. If you are looking for a transformative piece for your dynasty team that will cost you something substantial, then consider Taylor. 

Taylor is poised for a career renaissance this season in Indianapolis. After finishing as the RB1 overall at his position in 2021, Taylor fell off considerably in 2022. Taylor’s points per game dipped from 22 ppg all the way to 13.3. After being regarded as the RB1 overall in dynasty, Taylor fell below players such as Breece Hall, Bijan Robinson and Jahmyr Gibbs

This year, Taylor missed the start of the season in an ugly and bizarre contract dispute. The Colts and Taylor eventually came to terms, with the two sides agreeing on a massive three-year deal. Taylor now has contract insulation and the chance to return to fantasy greatness. After two long seasons, fantasy managers could be rewarded with the return to massive scoring totals. Look for Taylor to thrive next to second year QB Anthony Richardson

Light at the End of the Tunnel

After losing a great deal of fantasy luster, there have to be some frustrated Taylor managers who do not see the light at the end of the tunnel. Taylor offers top-five RB scoring, but some managers would be willing to pivot off of him at 80 cents on the dollar. Never underestimate the power of recency bias in fantasy football. 

We have also not seen Taylor play next to a mobile rushing threat like Richardson. Taylor has the big play ability to rip off huge runs in this offense. There is also a large sample size now of RBs having elite production in the Shane Steichen-led Colts’ offense. Zack Moss and Taylor combined for nine games with 17 or more PPR points scored. 

Nice things cost a lot. Consider sending an offer for a player that could push your Dynasty team to new heights like Taylor. 

Tee Higgins WR | Cincinnati Bengals

Higgins has a great deal of uncertainty about his future. He has also failed to live up to early career expectations. After reaching 15.7 ppg in 2021, there has been a steady decline in Higgins’ production, culminating in a career low of 11.5 PPG in 2023. This has created a buying opportunity that could pay large dividends in 2024 and beyond. 

Age is certainly on Higgins’ side. Despite playing four seasons in the league, he is still only 24 years old. Stats wise, we have already seen a great deal: he has scored 24 TDs as a pro, posted two seasons with 70+ receptions, and two seasons with over 1,100 receiving yards. It feels like the best season of his career has not happened yet. 

Higgins is an impending Free Agent, and there are two scenarios, both appealing ones, for his 2024 situation. He could get the franchise tag from Cincinnati and play alongside Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase, or he could receive a massive contract from a team that views him as their new WR1. If the latter happens, Higgins will receive a career high in targets and a chance at being his team’s WR1 for the first time in his career. 

This is a rare “buy low,” that also falls in line with a win now pickup.
