With the NFL Draft behind us, most dynasty leagues are shifting into rookie draft mode. And as most dynasty players will tell you, the best time to make a trade is when you’re sitting on the clock so this a near-optimum time to acquire slightly more proven assets.
Since there are few better opportunities to capitalize on an owner’s appetite for the unproven, I’m going to identify a few dynasty assets I’m buying with each round of picks.
Round 1 Pick Trades
Trading out of a first-round pick can be clearly separated into two categories: Early Firsts and Late Firsts. Barring a godfather offer, I don’t think many drafters will be trading out of the top two spots this year, as the landing spots surpassed even high expectations. But starting at 1.03, there’s a bit of subjectivity based on the eye of the beholder. You may find this spot to be profitable if you’re closer to competing than your early draft slot would suggest.
1.03 or Later
