Dynasty Trade Value Chart: March

Dynasty Player Values

As we enter March, the dynasty offseason will finally start to heat up. Free agency will change the landscape, especially with so much still to be determined at quarterback and with some big-time wide receivers set to potentially hit the market. We also are entering what will be a weird draft season that will lack the typical buildup we have come to expect. There is still time to better position yourself for what should be another very strong rookie class.

In this month’s dynasty trade value, we will go deeper on:

  • The sweet spot for value in 2021 rookie drafts.
  • Where we might see big value swings at quarterback.
  • The big picture at the running back position.
  • A look at which running backs have had a value boost over the last month.
  • The free-agent wide receiver class.

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.

Looking for the sweet spot

Prior to 2020 rookie drafts, we talked often about how loaded the second round would be and theorized those picks were being undervalued. In the superflex format, the second-round options usually included Jalen Hurts, Antonio Gibson, A.J. Dillon, Tee Higgins, Brandon Aiyuk, and Laviska Shenault Jr (amongst others). If you targeted extra picks in the second round during the lead-up to the draft, you probably ended up quite happy with the results.

Where might the sweet spot be in terms of value in the 2021 class and what picks will carry more value than expected?

The view from here is that the first round is loaded from top-to-bottom, especially in superflex drafts. The best bang for your buck if you are trying to acquire rookie draft picks is in the late first round. That looks to be the sweet spot where there are still going to be some fantastic talents available. You should be looking to acquire those late 1st round picks, even if it means paying a slight premium over where the market currently values them. Let’s again put some names to picks in a superflex rookie draft. Here are 12 players who should carry some serious dynasty value when it comes time for rookie drafts (by position):

Quarterback (4)

The quarterback class could be a special group for fantasy purposes. Trevor Lawrence is one of the best quarterback prospects in recent memory. He is not quite as solidly built as Josh Allen but has everything else physically that has made Allen a fantasy star. He will likely be more of a runner than many expect. Clemson limited his designed runs in games they were huge favorites, which was almost every week. In the big spots, Lawrence proved a dangerous runner. Justin Fields also has massive fantasy upside, though is riskier. He is built like a strong safety and runs in the 4.4s. Zach Wilson is a gunslinger who is looking like a lock for the Top 10. He too could add at least some fantasy value with his legs. Trey Lance is also a big-time dual-threat prospect likely ticketed for the Top 10 overall who rushed for 1,100 yards and 14 touchdowns in his breakout 2019 season. We have not had a quarterback class like this with so many elite dual-threat prospects in recent memory.

Running Back (4)
