Dynasty Trade Value Chart: August

Quantifying long-term player values for dynasty leagues. 

August is one of the most challenging months on the dynasty calendar. We are hit with an avalanche of information. Making our dynasty teams better relies heavily on our ability to figure out what pieces of information are really important and how much the news should cause us to change our previous player valuations.

Since big value swings are going to be common at this time of year, the focus of this article is on how the very early news from the first week or two of camp impacted the value of specific players. In the write-ups below, you will notice numbers in parentheses following each players name. Those numbers represent the change in dynasty value for the specific player since the July dynasty trade value update. For example, you will see Tyreek Hill (+11). The +11 indicates the change in his dynasty value since the last update — Hill’s dynasty value risen from 24 to 35.

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 values for Superflex leagues. 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 and adjust accordingly. A trade value chart for 2020 rookie picks is also included below the four positional breakdowns.

Minor value changes

We’ll keep the quarterback section short this month. There was very little real value movement at the position, with no quarterback gaining or losing more than 2 points worth of trade value over the last month.

Some quarterbacks gained a point or two of Superflex value just based upon favorable training camp reports or positive injury news. Deshaun Watson (+2) gets a small value boost due to a strong camp and the good health news on each of his top three receivers. Kyler Murray (+2) seems to be meeting or exceeding early expectations and sees his value continue to rise. Don’t be surprised if that continues to be the case. Cam Newton’s (+2) shoulder is less of a concern than it was a month ago, so his value gets a small bump. After some concerning reports out of OTAs, the training camp reports on Lamar Jackson’s (+1) performance as a passer have been encouraging. Jackson is one a quarterback to monitor closely because he could see a fairly significant increase or decrease in dynasty value based upon his performance this month.
