In the latest edition of Dynasty Trade Targets, Curtis Patrick highlights a player with an RB4 price tag, but James Conner’s upside.
In the last edition of Dynasty Trade Targets, I unveiled a wide receiver who’s poised to become the next Tyreek Hill — a lower-pedigree draft pick with an extended post-rookie-season-buy-window who becomes an elite fantasy scorer for years to come.
In this edition, I’m shining a light on a cheap running back that made Shawn Siegele’s Top-5 Zero RB Candidates List for 2022. Cheap running backs make sense to target in dynasty due to significant role-value discrepancies. There are two strategic reasons to buy this type of player:
- it can improve your low-end playoff team and create a title chance ahead of schedule
- these players could become more valuable in-season, which creates a flip opportunity later
- for a player at a position more critical to your long-term plans
- for a more valuable draft pick than the player is worth today
This Dynasty Trade Target was RB16 last season — but his dynasty ADP is RB37, and he’s going outside the top-130 picks in Superflex startup drafts. He’s still slotted in as the RB1 in his offense but is being drafted after his backup.
I think you can buy this player for a 2023 second-round pick about 75% of the time.
