Bjorn Yang-Vaernet goes over his round-by-round strategy and picks for Rounds 6 through 10 in a post-NFL draft RotoViz TriFlex Dynasty league.

This article is a continuation of my first article documenting my pre-draft strategy and pick analysis of Rounds 1 through 5 of an FFPC RotoViz TriFlex Dynasty league that I recently completed.

In order to get caught up with how the team stands heading into Round 6, I recommend reading that piece first: Building the Foundation for Sustained Dynasty Success

As I mentioned in the previous article, dynasty startups are challenging because it is hard to value anything — draft picks and players. While all startup drafts are different, I hope these two articles can become a reference point for those drafting in startups throughout the summer.

Round 6

We did not make a pick in Round 6 as we gave up our pick in the trade to acquire an extra Round 8 pick. However, we did have a couple of opportunities to trade back up into this round (and the early seventh) that we did not take. Although there were several second-year and productive veteran WRs that went in this round, we did not feel strongly enough about one player to really consider moving back in.

One example of a trade that was offered:

The offer below felt fairly valued if we had a strong preference for any of the young players. However, given the perceived strength of the 2023 draft class, we only wanted to trade our 2023 Round 1 rookie pick if the trade netted us a player we really loved. Especially given our start of young upside players (at the expense of near-term certainty), we did not know how competitive our team will be.

Round 7

The end of Round 7 was the start of our run of draft picks. Starting from 7.09, we were slated to pick four times in the next eight picks. Going into these picks, we expected to primarily load up on WRs in order to build depth in this deep starting lineup league and get players whose values last for longer.
