Dyno / Devy SF TEP Orphan Rebuild, Looking for Evaluation / Ideas (1 Viewer)


My first time trying a dynasty / devy league.  All advice as I rebuild build is appreciated, let me know what you think.  🙂  There wasn't a whole lot available in the dispersal draft (see my other post with transaction history below) so my initial plan was to focus on youth / picks so that I could compete in a year. I ended up with what I think are some good young pieces and might not be completely terrible this year although maybe that would be better for higher picks net year.  Don't think I can compete this year but tough part is deciding if I want to shoot for next year or keep building through youth / picks.  May take at least a couple years to build a solid QB corps and I have nothing at TE right now.

Not sure if I can count on Saquon as a building block or if I should look to get as much for him as I can.  May be best to wait and hope he gets back ok and has a few good games, but by then I may just want to keep him.  Similar questions for players like McLaurin.

I'll update this initial post with league info and the most recent status / players and the next post(s) will contain detailed history up to this point.

Lehigh98 I think you have some nice pieces but not enough of them to contend right now, estimating that with 2 copies of each player being available that there are some really stacked teams to contend with.

I think you did a good thing in prioritizing the QB position as these players will have the most longevity and also have huge value in SF good ones will always be trade commodities where you can make things happen if you should acquire enough of them.

While most of the time selling a dime for 3 nickel's is bad practice, in your current situation I think you should consider doing that to improve the overall quality of your roster and try to acquire more QBs using Barkley and McClaurin as your big bait

Because of the devy aspect of the league I think rookie picks are not as valuable as they are in a non devy league. So while I would advise you try to trade for picks anyways and build your team that way I am not as bullish about this strategy in a devy league as I am without that. I think the devy aspect of the league makes acquiring QB through the draft that much more difficult and a additional reason to prioritize that position.
