December is the month where trading takes a backseat and the major focus is on winning your playoff matches. If you didn’t make the playoffs, the focus is on watching the college bowl games to get an idea of who you might target in the draft to get there the next season. Since the trading deadline has already passed for the vast majority of leagues, this month’s dynasty trade value chart won’t break values down into 2019 and future value. The values listed are purely for 2020 and beyond. If you are in the rare league that allows trades during the fantasy playoffs, use common sense to determine what value there is in any possible playoff boost a player might provide and consider that their short-term value in addition to the 2020 values you will see listed below.
We will go position-by-position to discuss the most interesting decisions dynasty owners will likely face as we head into the decision. The goal will be to highlight some spots where you might be able to sell high or buy low on certain players by predicting who will be the bigger offseason risers and fallers. Lastly, the article will end with 2020 rookie pick values and give you a short list of players you should focus on in college bowl games to start preparing for rookie draft season.
The dynasty trade value chart is tailored to 12-team PPR leagues a starting lineup of one quarterback, two running backs, three wide receivers, one tight end, and one flex. It now also includes trade values for Superflex leagues in a separate column. The chart is meant to serve primarily as a guide for trades but can also be 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 would 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, the offer is worth strongly considering. Each league is different, so pay close attention to the scoring and starting roster requirements specific to your league.
