I talked about roster management in a previous article and how it’s one of my favorite aspects of playing in dynasty leagues.
Well, guess what? I have a roster management move you should make this offseason. I believe that if you wait any longer, the “sweet spot” that we’re in will close and the value won’t be the same.
There are several reasons I believe you should do this, and I’ll cover them momentarily, but the heart of the move is this: sell Zach Ertz and buy a younger TE who’s a perfect replacement for Ertz in several ways.
Why Sell Zach Ertz?
It’s hard to be immune to recency bias. We become fans of players and enamored by big performances. It’s tough to remove the stuffed box scores and highlight-reel plays from our minds, especially when they happen at the end of the season.
Ertz, while still an elite tight end, provides a perfect window for dynasty owners to get some value in return while bolstering roster depth or securing future capital.
Look at how Ertz played after the bye (Out of Split) compared to before the bye (In Split) this past season.
