In Dynasty Trade Diary No. 3, Curtis Patrick reviews his recent move to inject upside potential in a dynasty roster lacking firepower at WR2.

Dynasty Trade Diary No. 3 – Adding WR2 Firepower

Entry No. 3

Today’s entry centers around the search for a high-upside WR2 for one of my squads that’s won two league championships.

League: FFPC Dynasty $250 #97 (Startup in 2019)

Format: 1QB, TE Premium scoring

Lineups: Start 10 (1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 2 Flex, 1 K, 1 DEF)

Notable Assets (Pre-Trade)

QB – Dak Prescott, Ryan Tannehill

RB – Alvin Kamara, Rashaad Penny, Ronald Jones, Michael Carter, Kenyan Drake

WR – Stefon Diggs, Amari Cooper, Rondale Moore, Tyler Boyd, Will Fuller, David Bell, Wan’Dale Robinson

TE – Mark Andrews, Pat Freiermuth, Gerald Everett

2023 Rookie Picks – Full set, rounds 1-7

Notes

Finishes by year:

2019 – Champion

2020 – Champion

2021 – missed playoffs

I’ve enjoyed great success in FFPC Dynasty Leagues all of types, from their legacy product, to dynasty best ball, and more recently our Rotoviz TriFlex format. This league has been no different, as I’ve hoisted the trophy twice in three years. Injuries derailed my 2021 campaign, but I’ve made plenty of moves to put this squad back into contention for a third belt in 2022.

As you can see by the roster rundown above, I have a glaring problem at WR2. In this start-2-WR format, I’ve got plenty of flex-worthy plays at the position, but after Stefon Diggs, there’s not a player I look at as a solid WR2, or ideally, a WR2 with WR1 potential.

The strength I was willing to trade from was my tight end corps. Andrews is a nearly untouchable piece in 1QB, TE Premium leagues as nearly any offer I could have sent out would have to yield a player and a pick in return. That’s not a move I wanted to make yet, with the goal still being to make a run at a title this year (we play in the perennial championship window). Everett is in a great spot to break out with the Chargers, but he’s not really carrying much dynasty value at the moment. I zeroed in on Freiermuth as the preferred option to dangle in trade talks.

Returns were near-immediate.
