Tentative rookie RB/WR tiers after diving into clips and stats this weekend:   RB Josh Jacobs, Raiders - No major weaknesses and walks into a starting role. Power, hands, elusiveness, and e

That is interesting. As a Gordon owner here and there, I think I'd have jumped on that offer in any league I have him, without even looking at my own roster or that of the owner sending me the pick.

Wow I think people really need to go back and look at the last 10 years of 1st/2nd round NFL WR picks.  These guys hit at what, a 20% rate?  15%?  It's a miserable number.  I'd be pretty surprised if

I'm not a fan of Ruggs but Ruggs is nowhere close to DHB. I made a similar conparison long ago because of the 40 yard dash but that was foolish... they are very non similar 

My comment about Ruggs and DHB was more hyperbole than anything.  I do have some doubt that he is well rounded enough to be elite so like I stated I will let someone else pull the trigger on him.  Now, I may spend the next few months talking him up to the other league GMs!😀

For David Carr I'd take whatever I could get as he's been gone for years, but for Derek Carr I'd be asking for a mid 1st in SF or a solid WR. Maybe a late 1st if you have needs at WR.

:doh:

was at my market - brain fart. :lol: 

yeah - dudes like, “I wouldn’t trade one of my top 5 WRs”

so...probably gonna hold.

He does have 1.10 but I doubt I get replacement value there. Better to hold for a year & see if Carr’s stock improves - it’s a gamble.

What's malhomes's worth pick wise in a 1qb league?

I would offer the 1.03 for him. I don't value the other RBs as much as Taylor and CEH. I value Mahones more than all the WRs.  In terms of players I have, I wouldn't give Barkley or Dalvin Cook or Cooper, but I would offer Derrick Henry or Tyler Lockett.

This rookie draft is intriguing from the quantity vs quality aspect.  There appears to be real depth in this draft so is it to your advantage to have multiple picks or do you package some of those picks to move up to get a higher rated prospect?  Example: I have the following picks:  1.02, 1.08, 1.14 (Mine, I won the league!), and 2.01

I look at 1.02 as a little bit of a no brainer.  Draft who is there between CEH and Taylor.   

The options start after 1.02.  I think the top 6 players are on a different Tier and then the next Tier starts at 8.   Option A: Move up to 5 or 6 and then you can land Dobbins, Jeudy, Lamb or Swift.  Option B: Best available at 8 and then pick twice at 14 and 15.  Mims, Higgins, Aiyuk, Pittman Jr. 

Our league has roster size limits so you can't just acquire picks and stash.  It will probably come down to if I can make a good valued trade

Personally, I have it

CEH

small gap

Taylor/Dobbins

Huge Gap

Everybody else through about pick 18

small gap

Leftovers

 

Put Akers and Swift at the front of that 3rd Tier since the RBs after them are a big step down. The WRs are very deep and I don’t put the earlier drafted guys that much far ahead of guys you can get in the mid-2nd rookie round. The 1st rounders this year aren’t appreciably better chances of hitting than many other mid-late NFL 1st rounders that have busted at about a 60% clip the last 10 years. IMO, if sitting at 6 or 7, get someone to pay extra for Lamb or Jeudy and move down, that’s what I did in one league getting Pittman at 13 and an extra 1st next year.

I would definitely hold for that price.  In a superflex or start 2QB league, I would have to get a player who will regularly start for me at another position if I'm going to trade a NFL starting QB without getting one in return.  Maybe other teams will be interested if you want to shop him around now because this guy may have inquired about him, but he isn't really interested.  He has to know that he isn't offering close to market value and is just trying to steal him away. 

One of the reasons why QB is so important in superflex is because of the scarcity of decent NFL starters.  Once there's some injuries you will be able to get market value for him if you still want to shop him.  Personally, I really prefer to keep at least 3 NFL starting QBs on my roster in my superflex league so I would probably just keep him unless I get an offer that clearly improves my starting lineup without getting older.  With regards to Carr specifically, I think he improves this year anyway.  He's a better QB than many people give him credit for, especially considering his supporting cast.  Now he has improved weapons around him so I do expect an improvement to what has already been a solid and underrated player.

Owner wants to get rid of Kirk and has offered me the following:

I get: Kirk, WR Arizona (I have Moore& Sutton)

I give up: 2021 first round (probably middle 1st)

Good deal?? Or, what if I offered a 2021 2nd and a mid-round pick this year?

(I am new to Dynasty and future year draft picks "values" are difficult to determine by me!)

I continue to be dumbfounded at the value people are assigning to Kirk after his first two years in the league.  So I guess to answer your question, 0% chance I pay a future 1st for Kirk.  Future 2nd and change seems far more reasonable.

If I had a top 2 pick, I would stay put.

I think there are some very decent arguments for trading down if your pick is in the 3-8 range, especially if you are planning on taking a WR. Players like Ruggs and Aiyuk who were highly-vetted by the NFL draft process are often slipping down into the 10-12 range behind JAG-y RBs and lower-rated WRs. Is there really a value gap there or just a perceived gap? If you have a guy you love like Lamb or Jefferson and you're 100% sold then I can see an argument for staying put, but generically the WR draft feels pretty flat to me. Maybe the guy you get at #10 or 12 outproduces Lamb and Jeudy. It feels like we're splitting hairs.

Also, while I don't have a lot of can't-miss favorites in that range, the 12-24 range of this draft is loaded with day two WR/RB talent and first round QB prospects who seemingly have a pulse, so if you can hop down from something like pick 4 to pick 10 and grab an extra mid 2nd, it feels like you're probably winning the deal considering that you're still going to be able to pick up a first round WR talent and then you'll be able to add another quality prospect on top of that.

The raw odds say there are probably a couple Jordy Nelson/Eric Decker/Tyler Boyd/DeSean Jackson type of hits hiding in the 2nd-3rd round WR cluster, so grabbing an extra lottery ticket is something to consider.

Couldn't agree more. 1 and 2 are both going to yield solid RBs that are close to can't miss. 3-5 are going to RBs who are not as certain. And the WRs that are going from 6-12 are all in the same tier for me.

Agree--do not deal a mid-first for Kirk. He is at best second fiddle there now.  I would rather get one of the top rookie WRs who have more upside.

This isn’t entirely true. In my dynasty league, we start a total of 7 players between rb and wr. I finished third last year and by the end of the year Breshad Perriman and Jonnu Smith were in my lineup every week. Guys get hurt, or just simply get replaced. Having a 900 yard WR when you’re starting that many players a week can make a huge difference

It can, but you get those off the wire or in week 7 for a future 3rd from a rebuilding team.  You don't spend a late 1st and miss a chance for a home run.

I'm quite thrilled to see Russel Wilson has fallen into the old-so-cheap category.  I've made a killing grabbing up Rivers/Ben/Brees/Rodgers cheap for the last few years and was wondering what my tactic was going to become once these guys age out as Matt Ryan can't prop that category up himself forever

So, I have 1.04 which I plan to take a RB.

I also have 1.07 which I am thinking of taking a second RB........or would you consider trading this down and getting extra picks since the RBs at this point won't be worth much??

Look at your league rosters. 

Do you realistically expect to compete for the championship?  If so, value your future 1st near the end of the round.

Do you realistically expect to make the playoffs?  If so, value your first right around the cutoff for the worst playoff team (typically this is pick 7 in a 12-team league)

Do you think you're in a complete rebuild?  Value your pick from 1.01-1.03 and don't let anyone convince you otherwise.

Just off the top of my head I see a preliminary value 8 deep.  Similar to 2020, with Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields being had late 1st early 2nd in start 1 QB dynasty drafts.....Ja'Marr Chase, Travis Etienne, Chubba Hubbard, Rashod Bateman, Jaylen Waddle, Justyn Ross, Rondale Moore, and Najee Harris.  I don't think the WRs will have as much depth as 2020 for 2nd round value.

Everyone values future picks differently. Every time I have personally traded a future pick away I seem disappointed by the time the draft rolls around for that year. So from that perspective I rarely trade future 1st round picks away unless I have multiple. I usually am working on obtaining future picks as drafting is one of the more enjoyable parts of dynasty for me.

2021 specifically looks like a loaded TE class,  6 WR's went in round one of Dane Bruglers mock(his early 2020 mock he did after 2019 draft was pretty good so I'm putting some stock in this) so WR should be every bit as top heavy as this year. As for RB's no one had CEH on their radar this time last year so you never know who emerges but right now the top RB's all look like a group that was eligible to come out this year but elected to stay-not a great sign to me for the RB class.

In a more general sense I tend to value of a random future #1's around value of a 6th round startup. This opinion is not universally shared and I believe the value should be altered based on your perceived ranking of the next years class and while it's hard to know this sometimes in a startup were that pick is projected to land. I'll also add I tend to look at this from angle of FFPC league.

Nothing is universal but in my experience doing quite a few startups over the last few years this is about as close to a consensus as you can get.  It's to the point where in most startups since startup trade calculators often don't include future 1sts people are actually plugging in the value of pick 6.06 into the calculator as a placeholder for the future 1st in the calculation.

A great start. 6th round seems fair as a blanket, but you have to realize that a guy like CEH this year would likely never make it to the 6th round even in a startup. When possible, check ADP for startup drafts and look for the rookies. There are often charts kicked out on various sites that can give you some perspective, as well. Back in Feb I cam across one from a CBS writer that seemed like a decent starting point. https://www.cbssports.com/fantasy/football/news/fantasy-football-dynasty-trade-chart-values-for-the-top-150-players-2020-rookie-draft-picks/

I had no idea that was the case but I've not done startups in a few years,  last FFPC startup I did was back in 2015. 

In that draft I had traded away a late 5th round startup pick for a teams 2016 first and second. I got ripped by a few people for making a horrible trade.

Is trading a 2020 2.04 worth getting a 2021 1st rounder? Comparable?

Depends on who is available.  Mims and Pittman were available at that pick in a couple of my drafts and I would consider them worth a late 2021 1st.  I'd have to feel pretty confident its fairly late, like 8-12 range, but if I have roster space and want a WR, I'd do it.

I think you're printing money in the long run if you can trade a 2nd for a future 1st.

There used to be an argument in the FF community that pick in X round this year is worth a pick in X-1 round next year, but nobody makes that argument anymore because it's terrible long-term strategy to give away the higher pick. The thing about trading any 2nd for any 1st is that all it usually takes is a little bit of bad luck for that 1st to end up in the top 3, then you're the guy who gave up Christian McCaffrey or Joe Mixon for Leonte Carroo.

No, that's exactly what I meant.

There are usually some decent prospects on the board in the 2nd round of rookie drafts and inevitably some guys picked in that range will pan out, but if they were bulletproof elite prospects then they wouldn't still be on the board. The 2nd round rookie pick level of prospect is basically dime-a-dozen. If you want a Shenault or a Claypool, you can go out and get him at any time. On the other hand, even though they don't always pan out, the value of the elite RB/WR prospects cannot be overstated and anything you do that takes you out of range to land those Fitz/Andre/Calvin/Crabtree/Green/Julio/Blackmon type of prospects is a massive flub in dynasty.

I'm very reluctant to give up my future 1st in dynasty, even when my roster looks like a playoff team. That's how you miss out on Zeke/Saquon/Luck/etc, and once those guys are taken, they will usually be locked away on another owner's roster for years.

No no. You wouldn't be able to get Boyd. But you would be getting similar production from player X, Y or Z on the wire or thru trade. 

In my experience playing mostly FFPC where rosters are more shallow than most. 

I like Boyd and I've won with him in my lineup. But I absolutely think we've seen his ceiling and it has value. But there are at least 7 rookie WRs I would rather roll the dice with right now.

If he won't trade any WR then he's not being serious about an offer or he doesn't understand the value of QBs in SF. I usually back away politely from these types as it's almost always a waste of time.

To each their own but I'll say again, this notion that Boyd has no upside is bewildering to me.

Right off the bat, Joe Burrow's likely #1 target going forward having no upside baffles me.  Beyond that, the guy just put up 90-1065-5 in an abysmally awful offense, and now that offense looks like it's headed in the opposite direction.

Beyond that, I see no reason why we should assume that a guy entering his age 25 season has already had his best season.  Entering his age 25 season Antonio Brown's best year was 69-1108-2.  Robert Woods was 65-699-5.  Davante Adams was 75-995-12.  Amari Cooper was 83-1153-5.  Cooper Kupp 62-869-5.  Wes Welker, Julian Edelman, Adam Thielen, etc etc.

Would it be THAT shocking if 2 years from now the guy that just put up the best college football season of all-time (that made Trevor Lawrence look like a day 3 chump) is throwing for 4500-5000 yards per season, 1400-1500 of which is going to Boyd?  It certainly wouldn't be more surprising to me than Brandon Aiyuk or Denzel Mims putting up those kind of numbers, and that's not to mention the likelihood of those guys being Dante Pettis and Quincy Enunway by then.

You could absolutely be right but I'm not convinced he is going to be one of those guys. I'm not convinced he *isn't* either. But if I'm forced to avoid being neutral, then I take the late 1st. I just don't see Boyd as keystone piece of my roster but I might find one. I really don't think you're off base or anything. For me it's a marginal call and if someone added the right piece to it I probably take Boyd over that late 1st.

I typically find and play at least two emerging WRs midseason every year. I got Boyd that way FFS. I got Hill that way. Woods. I could dig but I mean guys get dropped. 

Perriman, Slayton, Unicorn (not realized yet but did pick off waivers), Greg Ward even helped me win a title last year. Bigger rosters and best ball but still.

I think the difference here is in roster size.   You mentioned shallow rosters... in those leagues I absolutely agree with you but if you’re in a league like I am, 12 teams, 24 deep, you can pick up waiver guys to help you limp along but your extremely lucky if you get a 1K WR off waivers or for a 3rd round rookie pick.

 If the top 5 RBs are gone then don't reach for a RB.  If your roster needs 2 RBs, then trade back and take a RB late 1st or early 2nd. 

The only question I have is would your rather have Akers over whichever is there between Jeudy and Lamb? In a PPR I say no.

Boyd wasn't a 900 yard WR last year.  He also wasn't a typical 1045 yard WR either, with his 90 receptions plus an inexplicable shutout vs. the Raiders.  Those 90 points up fast in PPR.  Guys like Emmanuel Sanders, Jamison Crower, and Randall Cobb were in that range during trading season though and I'd be shocked if some pretender weren't begging you to take them for a 3rd.

You should, and the above is exactly why.  If a guy is in love with Pittman he doesn't feel like he's trading for 2.04 he feels like he's trading for the 1.10.  I have done dozens of these deals and a week ago I traded 2.08 in a 16 man league for a 2021 1st - IDP with 6 IDP off the board so the equivalent of what, 18 overall?  I'm not well positioned with early 2's in my next draft but I got one more I should be able to add at last two 2021 1sts to either via this or trading mid 1sts for 2nd + future 1.

I think the difference here is in roster size.   You mentioned shallow rosters... in those leagues I absolutely agree with you but if you’re in a league like I am, 12 teams, 24 deep, you can pick up waiver guys to help you limp along but your extremely lucky if you get a 1K WR off waivers or for a 3rd round rookie pick.  

That's fair. To be clear I'm not really talking about getting a 1k guy. I'm talking about getting someone that can do the same thing *that* week.

But yes the roster size thing is crucial. Perriman, Slayton and Ward were all waiver pickups in my 25 man league last year (bestball makes a difference too) and they all contributed about that 1k rate on a PPG basis. 

Anyway I've probably said enough on this.
