With the NFL Draft less than a month away, Dynasty Football Players are starting to come out of their dwellings and it is time to start making moves for the upcoming season and years after.
For those of you who do not know what a Dynasty Football League is, it is basically a team you draft, but then you carry over the entire team the next year and years after that. You can get rid of players by dropping or trading them, and can acquire players through adding them from free agency, trades, or the rookie draft.
This article we are going to discuss some potential buy low trade targets for dynasty purposes. These guys may not get the hype, but they are in a good position to exceed their 2018 value and become staples in your lineups.
Corey Davis has had an up and down career thus far. He has flashed his immense upside that made him a top 10 picks just two years ago, but he has also struggles with injuries and bad play. Mariota is entering a make it or break it year, and I believe he will be much better than his 2018 self. A better Mariota means a better Davis. People forget that Davis owned a huge 27 percent target share. That is elite opportunity and in fantasy, opportunity equals production. With no real threat to his targets, yeah not worried about Adam Humphries, Davis can continue to be a target hog. With better efficiency from Davis and Mariota, we can see a third year breakout from Corey Davis.
A popular sleeper pick in 2018, Penny disappointed owners throughout the season. He got injured in training camp and never made up ground on the announced starter, Chris Carson. Carson went on and had a solid season, but Penny was the most explosive back in Seattle. Limited in touches, Penny was excellent in the second half of the season and reminded everyone why he was a first round pick. He has elite elusiveness in the open field and with a full offseason in the makings, can challenge for lead ball duties. This backfield will likely be a RBBC but with Mike Davis gone and an injury prone “starter” in Carson, I see a clear path to big production from Penny.
The Jets made a big splash this off-season and they made their offense a whole lot better with the additions of Le’veon Bell and Jamison Crowder. Crowder has been one of the better slot receivers in the league but has been slowed by injuries. With a new team and new opportunities, this could be a year where we see Crowder creep into the top 25 in WR scoring. Sam Darnold should take a step forward this year, and we know the type of offense Adam Gase likes to run. I’m not saying Crowder is Jarvis Landry, but they possess similar skill sets and considering there is not a dominant WR on this roster right now, Crowder could push for a 90-catch season. In PPR or Half PPR scoring, that is excellent value.
