What's Ron Dayne worth right now? (1 Viewer)

His value is about as high right now as it's ever been. I imagine he's being shopped around in quite a few leagues. What's the man worth right now as Denver's current #1 back.

I don't think his value is very high yet. I think a very large portion of the population is fully expecting him to fall down the depth chart at some point, and are therefore looking to sell him as quickly as possible before his value plummets. It seems b_s_s fits into that group. They might think that his value is as high now as it ever will be, and are therefore looking to get SOMETHING for him in return.

Meanwhile, there's another school of thought that says Dayne will win the starting job outright. I happen to belong to that school of thought, and will continue to subscribe to it unless Denver drafts an RB in the first two rounds.

I think now is the perfect time to buy Dayne. I think he'll be very cheap still, and many Dayne owners would be very willing to part with him. If you're in a league with the latter type of Dayne owner, though- the one who thinks that Dayne will win the starting job- it's going to take a hefty chunk of change to pry him away.

So to recap, in many leagues, you will be able to acquire Dayne for a top-30 WR. In other leagues, you won't be able to acquire Dayne without giving a starting RB in return. My personal believe is that if you're in any of the first kind of leagues, load up on Dayne ASAP. I really think his value is going to skyrocket right around the end of Training Camps.

You wouldnt say that if you tried to trade for him.His owners think he is the next T Davis......NOT :yucky:

His value really isn't that high. There aren't any games scheduled now.....Sorry, gotta bust a little.

Like I said, it's really a mixed bag on the owners. Half are going to think he's worth as much as a solid redraft 1st-rounder (he's not), and the other half are going to think he's worse than a redraft 10th-rounder (he's not that, either).If you're in a league where the owner is absolutely convinced that he's the next big thing in Denver, you probably aren't going to get him away. If you're in a league where the owner was the same type of guy who kept calling the Mike Anderson situation "a mess" last season, then you can probably trade for him.

If you're really set on acquiring Dayne, and you're in a league with a possessive owner, then wait for certain developments during the offseason. Lots of people will overreact to little blips on the radar screen. When Denver drafts an RB this year, like they almost always do, Dayne's value might fall. Try again then.

I'd probably unload him now before it gets too close to the draft. Once Denver drafts a RB, at least half the Ron Dayne bandwagoners are going to jump ship and his value will fall.

I think he'll be given an honest chance to win the job but I dont think he will. He might however get the job due to injuries.

#1 - He's still Ron Dayne

#2 - He's still on the Broncos with their version of musical RBs

His perceived value is probably ig but I would touch him with a 10' pole.

The Broncos playing musical chairs with their rb's is mostly myth. How people fail to understand this is beyond me. Shanahan has yet to name a starter for next year (why would he at this point?) but who he says is his starter actually plays as his starter.

I have both Dayne & Bell in a dynasty league & I'm not moving either one. The upside that one of them is the starting RB this year outweighs anything I could receive in a trade for either one at this point in the offseason.

as a dayne owner, I hope the Bell owner in my league feels like you do, and is willing to part with DJAX for Dayne, and grossman

If I was a Dayne owner in a dynasty league, I'd hold onto him until right before the 2006 season starts. I think Dayne will begin the season as the starter, but the rookie they draft will take over in about the 4th game as the undisputed starter ala Portis in his rookie year. The best value for Dayne may be right before the season starts, but it is also a big risk to hold onto him that long.

If I still had Ron Dayne on some dynasty roster somewhere, I'd pedal him as FAST as possible. I'd take anything too.
:goodposting: you get the feeling there is going to be someone else coming to Denver to be the featured back,either a rookie or an established player on another team ( Ricky?)

If someone gives you D.Jackson for Dayne & Grossman, then you should go buy a lottery ticket the same day and hope the good luck continues. I like Dayne & Bell....but in no way shape or form do I think Dayne is that valuable.

That fact that Jamal Lewis was planning to visit Denver right before he signed with BAL tells me that Shanny is still looking for his starter.

Im fairly confident Denver's leading rusher for 06 isnt on the roster yet. The problem with the Denver backfield is that unlike most teams, you cant really get a good vibe off of what they do in the draft. In other words most NFL teams take a back in the first 2 rounds if the legitimately expect the guy to compete for a starting job. Denver could take a guy in the 6th and we all start wondering how many TDs he will have this season to go with his 1000+ yards. Broncos backfield has always been an iffy proposition. Add in the Dayne/Bell mystery and personally I want no part of it.

The original title is "What is he worth". In my 16 team league with three keepers I could probably get a 5th round pick for him ( about 120th player selected) from a running back hungry team that is speculating. I'll be holding onto him until we actually draft in August. If Shanahan has named him tyhe starter, I'll probably be able to package him with a draft pick to move into the first round. If someone else is named the satrter, I'll just toss him back. From a risk/reward standpoint, I don't think it makes any sense to move him now.

I totally disagree. I want EVERY Broncos back, if the price is right. Shanahan pumps out stud RBs like Lays does potatoe chips. Buy low and either hold or sell high.Right now, I'll stand by my earlier thought that Dayne is the top bet to be the 20 carry back with a 10-12 carry load falling to Bell and/or a supplemental back (rookie/FA).

did i miss something where it said he was Denvers #1 RB :confused:
There's lots of evidence that Shanahan is unwilling to give Bell a heavy workload (including Shanahan's own words). Combine this with the fact that the team let Anderson go, and the fact that resigning Dayne was a big priority for the front office, and all evidence seems to point to Dayne being "the guy" this year- at least for now.

Thank you. A big reason why Denver has used so many RBs in simply injuries.

Or it could be due to the fact Shanahan thought he could get a fantastic player at a dirt cheap price.
