Dynasty Workshop: Permanent Championship Window – Rookie Draft Trades Edition

Shawn Siegele breaks down the trades from a RotoViz TriFlex rookie draft and explains how the right rookie draft tactics can help you create a permanent championship window in dynasty.

Rookie draft tactics and dynasty trade tactics are both part of my Dynasty Workshop: The Permanent Championship Window, and they intersect during this glorious month of wall-to-wall rookie drafts.

In today’s exercise, I’ll go through the trades from one of my three RV TriFlex drafts. Over the course of five rounds, Ben Gretch and I made 11 trades, selected 12 rookies, added three veterans, and acquired two additional picks in the first two rounds of the 2023 draft.

In each of these cases, the goal is not to win the trade, it’s to come up with a solution that allows us to accomplish our objectives and our trade partner to accomplish their objectives. It’s essentially a win-win for the managers involved, and a loss for the other 10 managers. The method is not to win the individual trade but to make a lot of trades that build on each other toward the long-term goal.

This was our team’s setup before the draft.

Can we create a significantly better roster through picks and trades?
