In today’s edition of the Dynasty Workshop, Shawn Siegele uses the RotoViz tools to help you dominate your dynasty playoffs . . . and the 2021 offseason.
Each week in this space, I like to look at new developments through the lens of rankings or trades. In our current dynasty workshop series, we’ve re-drafted the 2019 and 2020 classes against each other and examined the way in which star injuries can sometimes offer rare opportunities to reload your roster. Last week’s edition was even more popular, as I helped you locate the next Justin Jefferson, Chase Claypool, and D’Andre Swift. Two of those trade targets played on Sunday and already their prices are rising.
Heading into Week 8, our focus is two-fold. We want to find trades that help us win the 2020 fantasy playoffs and also set us up to dominate the 2021 offseason. Last year, Kenyan Drake scored 83 points during the fantasy playoffs after scoring only 57 during the first seven weeks. Rookies A.J. Brown and Miles Sanders pulled off similar feats.
Who are the next players to follow in their footsteps? Today, I’m providing the best dynasty playoff buy at running back, wide receiver, and tight end. I’ve also included four bonus buys in case the primary targets aren’t available in your league.
