Anybody who plays dynasty fantasy football knows that the grind doesn’t stop when the NFL regular season ends. In fact, it might just be getting started. And that’s the beauty of a dynasty league. There are always opportunities to alter and improve your roster, even in the doldrums of winter.
One of the first things to do after the fantasy season concludes is to do an audit of your roster. Maybe your team was a contender and is ready to get younger. Or maybe some guys you drafted in your startup draft a couple of years ago are aging or not panning out. Now’s the time to start thinking about trimming the fantasy fat. Using our dynasty consensus rankings, I give you some players you should consider trading away this offseason. And below is a closer look at Rhamondre Stevenson.
Dynasty Fantasy Football Trade Advice: Rhamondre Stevenson
Rhamondre Stevenson (RB – NE): ECR28, RB12
Seeing Stevenson on this list may surprise you. And I’ll admit, I didn’t expect to put the 24-year-old back on this list.
But then I dug into Stevenson’s season. And while he finished as the RB9, he rushed for 100+ yards just twice. And then I saw how Stevenson played in just 49% of the snaps in a must-win game against Buffalo in Week 18. I noticed that Damien Harris, who will likely leave New England this offseason, got 53% of the snaps and 14 touches to Stevenson’s 11.
Then I noticed that Stevenson committed three fumbles down the stretch in New England’s Week 16 and Week 18 losses. And I thought about how Bill Belichick values ball security above all else.
All of this results in a hunch that Belichick doesn’t trust Stevenson as much as the market might think. And while Harris could be gone, someone else could come in and bite into Stevenson’s workload enough to make him a frustrating, high-upside RB2, rather than a slam-dunk RB1 next season.
I believe Stevenson could garner a pretty good haul from both contenders and rebuilders alike in your league. If you’re buying this hunch, then now could be a good time to trade him.
