While June is a quiet month on the NFL calendar, it is both the prime time of the year for dynasty startup season and also the tail end of rookie draft season. Startups and rookie drafts will be the primary topics covered in this month’s dynasty trade value article. Given the slow part of the dynasty news cycle, I want to focus much more than normal on my own personal startup draft strategy at each position. We will also go in depth on the players who I have been (and will be) targeting heavily in rookie drafts and startups this summer.
- The one position I cannot stop targeting in rookie drafts.
- The underpriced quarterbacks in dynasty startups.
- The two running backs who have forced me to update my prior beliefs and have gone from fades to prime targets.
- The most cost-effective targets for long-term upside at wide receiver.
- Four screaming startup values at tight end.
The dynasty trade value chart is tailored to 12-team PPR leagues a starting lineup of one quarterback, two running backs, three wide receivers, one tight end, and one flex. It now also includes trade values for Superflex leagues in a separate column. The chart is meant to serve primarily as a guide for trades but can also be a great resource during startup drafts. If the players and picks on each side of the trade offer add up to approximately the same number, the trade would be considered even. If you receive a trade offer that sends you players with a higher total number value than the players you are giving up, the offer is worth strongly considering. Each league is different, so pay close attention to the scoring and starting roster requirements specific to your league.
