Amr Gabr tells you which five veterans to buy and which five to sell before dynasty owners adjust to the first two days of the 2021 NFL draft.
Every year thousands of dynasty drafters tune into the NFL draft to see which new crop of rookies will shape their dynasty rosters over the next couple of years, but these rookies also affect their veteran teammates as well. In this article, I’ll be looking at five veterans whose value shot up while also looking at five veterans whose value took a hit.
Matt Ryan – No. 88 overall
Ryan was the talk of the town leading up to the draft. Would the Atlanta Falcons look to the future or would they add more weapons to Ryan’s arsenal? Things seemed bleak when reports of a Julio Jones trade surfaced Wednesday evening, along with rumors that the Falcons were genuinely interested in a QB at the 4th overall pick.
Well, all that was put to rest when the Atlanta Falcons instead took Kyle Pitts, one of the best tight end prospects in NFL history. It was the earliest we’ve ever seen a tight end go in the NFL Draft.
Now, Ryan is equipped with arguably the best supporting cast in the NFL with Jones, Calvin Ridley, and Pitts. Yet most fantasy drafters have been selecting him behind the likes of Mac Jones, Daniel Jones, and Carson Wentz. Matt Ryan’s ADP should hover around between picks 60 and 75 this offseason. Right now he’s going at pick 88 in Dynasty Superflex drafts.
