Dynasty Trade Value Chart: May - Footballguys

Quantifying Long-Term Player Value for Dynasty Leagues

The best month on the dynasty calendar has arrived. The spotlight in May is on rookie drafts and that will be the primary focus of this edition of the dynasty trade value chart. Instead of going through my own personal rookie rankings, we will go into more depth on the following items related to rookie drafts:

  1. Putting together a process to build a draft board specific to your league.
  2. A look at the biggest decision-points in 2019 rookie drafts.
  3. Assigning trade value to specific picks and thoughts on an overall draft strategy.

In addition, we will take a position-by-position look at some of the veteran players who emerged from the draft as winners or losers.

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.

The Top Tier

We may not be quite there yet but expect Josh Jacobs to emerge as the consensus 1.01 over the next few weeks, especially after the Isaiah Crowell injury. There is just too much opportunity for him and he went off the board before any wide receivers and 29 picks ahead of the second running back. As of now, there isn’t a huge premium on the 1.01 in single quarterback leagues but it is possible that changes for later drafts. As predicted, there is starting to be much more of a premium on the 1.01 in Superflex leagues. Kyler Murray is an extremely exciting prospect and if you didn’t position yourself to take him over the past couple months, it is probably too late now unless you are willing to give up serious assets. Dwayne Haskins will also likely settle into the top tier in Superflex leagues. Running backs Miles Sanders and David Montgomery are also in the top tier. In terms of opportunity, there is a huge gap between the top three backs and anyone else in the class. N’Keal Harry seems to have enough support to also be included in the top tier. In tight end premium formats, Noah Fant and T.J. Hockenson are probably in the top tier.
