Dynasty


When the off-season hits, that’s when the action picks up in dynasty leagues. You have the end of year statistics to look over, prep to do for the upcoming rookie draft, and most importantly, trade packages to put together. All of this is to put you in the best possible position heading into the next season. For most, trades can be best summed up by a process one of my league mates once explained, “You’ll make an outrageous offer. Then I’ll make an outrageous offer. Eventually, we’ll meet somewhere in the middle.” What if trades didn’t have to be like this though? Sure, every league has that manager that’s going to explain to you why he’s doing you a favor and how he’s losing the trade. He’s just doing a lazy version of what I’m proposing to you in this article. What if we paid attention to our language and used rhetoric, like how we were taught to write persuasive papers in high school, to build trade offers?

Devy


In devy leagues, we are all looking for not only the generational talents at the collegiate level that will be NFL stars when they go pro, but we are also looking for the hidden gems that go under the radar but will be league winners someday. While generational talents like Trevor Lawrence, Travis Etienne, and Ja’Marr Chase are all well known in the fantasy community this article will try to determine breakout players who can be attained in future devy drafts based on their on-field play and analytical profiles.

IDP


This has been by far the most challenging season of sit/start decisions I’ve encountered in my years of fantasy football. Those of you in championship games and toilet bowls alike should take a moment to reflect on a challenging season, pat yourself on the back for your grit, and know that lessons learned this year will prepare you well for in-season roster management next year and beyond. If you’ve decided best-ball is your jam for 2021, I fully support you!

Redraft


This weekly article is focused on identifying players who are owned in less than 40% of redraft leagues. These players are going to help your team win this week and every week to come! We are looking for guys you should be able to plug into your starting lineup without hesitation. You generally don’t find this kind of production on the waiver wire in Week 17 of the fantasy football season, but not much comes as a surprise in 2020. Sunday night became the AJ Dillon show after Aaron Jones appeared to suffer a minor injury early in the game. Maybe it was always part of the plan to give Dillon 21 carries after never receiving more than five in any other game all year long, but it certainly came as a surprise to fantasy managers. Dillon finished the game with 21 carries for 124 yards and two touchdowns. He’s your top waiver wire pick up of the week without a doubt.
