In Dynasty Trade Diary, Curtis Patrick reveals his recent dynasty trades and shares the thought process behind offering or accepting the deals.
Dynasty Trade Diary – I Traded Justin Herbert and Rebuilt a Roster
Entry No. 1
League: The Bourgeoisie Dynasty League (Scott Barrett Charity Invitational)
Format: Superflex, TE Premium scoring
Lineups: Start 10 (1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 SF, 3 Flex)
Notable Assets (Pre-Trade)
QB – Kyler Murray, Justin Herbert
RB – D’Andre Swift
WR – Deebo Samuel, D.J. Moore, Michael Thomas, Will Fuller
TE – Pat Freiermuth
2022 Rookie Picks – 1.10, 2.12
This is easily the worst team in my dynasty portfolio of 16 squads.
In the 2020 startup I selected Kyler Murray and Justin Herbert, but was unable to convert my concentration of elite QB talent into a deep playoff run in either of the league’s first two seasons. Critical injuries at wide receiver (Michael Thomas, Will Fuller) and lack of a viable RB2 have hampered the squad.
While I own a full rookie pick set for 2022, neither the round one or two picks are my own as they were acquired in prior trades.
Considering the key assets on-hand, the clear move was to shop one of my quarterbacks to upgrade the rest of my roster. What kind of return can an elite quarterback like Murray or Herbert bring?
