Dynasty Trade Value Chart: August - Footballguys

Quantifying Long-Term Player Value for Dynasty Leagues

August is the month when we see the most movement in terms of dynasty values. Preseason performances and the seemingly constant stream of information coming out of training camp cause the value of some young guys to skyrocket while the offseason hype of others slowly fades.

It is also perhaps the most challenging time of year in dynasty. The goal is to thread the needle between taking into account every relevant report and adjusting prior opinions to take into account new information while not overreacting unnecessarily. Easier said than done. Further complicating matters is the often contradictory nature of training camp reports from day-to-day (and from reporter to reporter) and the prevalence of confirmation bias from analysts.

August is also a great time to take advantage of all that Footballguys offers. The weekly training camp reports are invaluable for dynasty owners and help you take in all of the relevant camp news while filtering out some of the noise. Subscribers should also feel free to contact me directly with any dynasty trade or valuation questions via twitter (@hindery), email ( or in the forums.

The dynasty trade value chart is tailored specifically to a 12-team PPR league that starts one quarterback, two running backs, three wide receivers, one tight end and a flex. It is meant to serve primarily as a guide for trades but is also a great resource during startup drafts. If the players and picks on each side of the trade offer add up to approximately the same number, the trade should be considered even. If you receive a trade offer that sends you players with a higher total number value than the players you are giving up, it is a trade offer worth strongly considering.

The August update will go in-depth on the return of Andrew Luck, the changing age curves at quarterback, how to value Le'Veon Bell and LeSean McCoy, the death of the Zero-RB strategy, early risers at wide receiver, and the top trade target at tight end.
