Player value in dynasty football reminds me of watching ocean waves. They ebb and flow, always in a state of flux. Competitive dynasty players anticipate these movements before they happen and act by picking up, buying, or selling players as the situation demands. Owners have previously been at the mercy of regular waiver segments to assist in dynasty pickups, but these fail to take the long-term view necessary to dynasty success. This segment (which will become a weekly feature in season) will focus on identifying assets that will help dynasty teams build for the future.
Important Notes: Budget percentages will be added to the inseason version of this report for both contending and rebuilding teams as an extra guidepost. 2016 rookies who may be out there on your waiver wire will be added in the training camp edition of this publication.

Robert Griffin III, WAS- Griffin survived the NFL draft without the Browns taking a quarterback in the first two rounds. The Browns publicly are saying that their third round selection, Cody Kessler, will compete with Griffin in camp; but it’s hard to see a scenario in which Kessler will beat out Griffin for the starting job. The newly drafted Corey Coleman can only help Griffin’s case. One of Griffin’s biggest strengths is his deep accuracy, and Coleman excels at speeding down the field to grab those deep shots.
