Player Age Dynasty Startup Strategy (2022 Fantasy Football)

Player Age Dynasty Startup Strategy (2022 Fantasy Football)

There is an old saying, “what goes up must come down.” Thanks to gravity, that applies to everything on Earth. However, it also applies to players in the NFL. No athlete can play at a high level until the day they die. Maybe Tom Brady is an exception to the rule, but he also might be a cyborg robot. All jokes aside, every football player will eventually have zero fantasy value. It’s just a matter of when not if.

Basic Background Info

When players hit their peak, they are at the highest point of their careers. But, unfortunately, what goes up must come down. After a few years of success, the player’s production will start to decline. The only question is how fast will the production drop, and how significant is the drop-off?

The best feeling in fantasy football is having players on your team performing at their peak. Meanwhile, it’s an awful feeling when you have players struggling to produce for your fantasy team. Furthermore, the only feeling worse is when you can’t trade away a player at all or for only a few bucks of FAAB (Free Agent Acquisition Budget) at best.
