With the NFL offseason upon us, it’s the perfect time to review your dynasty team, make roster moves, and approach other owners with trade offers to take your squad to the next level. Sometimes, this process requires an owner to consider giving up proven talent to improve other areas of need or gather assets for the future. Veterans can be difficult to part with, but sometimes the long term gains outweigh the short term losses. With that in mind, let’s analyze candidates who fit in the category of “dynasty RBs and TEs to sell”.James Conner: James Conner rolled out of bed one day last September and found out he was the starting running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Conner was given the role after it became clear Le’Veon Bell would not participate in the 2018 season and excelled in the role averaging 4.5 yards per attempt. While he experienced immediate success, it should be noted he was playing alongside Antonio Brown who is no longer with the team. Brown diverted attention away from the backfield demanding respect from defenders due to sheer talent. There’s also no question Conner benefitted from a star-studded offensive line that will not always be there to support him.Conner has a substantial injury history missing time last year with both ankle and head (concussion) injuries. Though he will likely enter the 2019 campaign healthy, there is significant reason to worry about his ability to stay on the field. There is no question about his on the field abilities, he is an RB1 as it stands, but he hasn't played a full 16-game season yet. It could be the perfect time to sell while he holds peak value.
