One of the interesting NFL trends has been the diminished importance of preseason football. More teams are either completely holding out starters all four weeks or limiting them to very few snaps. It feels like we have less information to go on than in past years and has helped contribute to the fact there has been surprisingly little real movement at most positions from where we started in August.
The one exception is running back. The news has been fast and furious -- especially the past few days -- when it comes to depth chart battles and players changing teams. Expect this volatility to continue in a big way throughout September as we see some young players emerge and some veterans solidify their short-term value. You should be thinking hard about if you want to cash in on the hype for hot prospects and trade them while their value is high or if you think they have real staying power.
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.
