Dynasty Fantasy Football Trade Advice (2023)

Dynasty Fantasy Football Trade Advice (2023)

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’ll give you some players you should consider trading away this offseason.

2023 Dynasty Fantasy Football Players to Trade Away

Alvin Kamara (RB – NO): ECR 54th Overall, RB21

Kamara’s fantasy stock took a pretty significant blow this season. He finished as the RB17 in PPR formats, but the ride wasn’t smooth at all. Kamara’s numbers weren’t awful, but he scored just four touchdowns on a Saints offense that took a significant step back.

New Orleans’ quarterback situation is completely up in the air, as the team can’t be crazy enough to go into 2023 with Jameis Winston and Andy Dalton again. But to make matters worse, Kamara could be suspended to begin the year due to unresolved legal issues.

Kamara is 27 and may still be highly regarded by your league-mates. That’s why now might be the time to try and flip him in case his value completely craters in 2023.

Davante Adams (WR – LV): ECR 21st Overall, WR12

It pains me to put Adams on this list, as he is such an incredibly talented wide receiver. But Derek Carr will no longer be in Las Vegas. And that was entirely the reason why Adams wanted to join the Raiders.

I’m not saying the departure of Derek Carr will destroy Adams’ career, but the Raiders definitely have a question to answer at quarterback. And there’s a decent chance the replacement is a step down from both Carr and Aaron Rodgers.

Adams is 30 years old and could be playing with the worst quarterback of his career. Considering he finished as the WR3 this season, he should garner a good haul from a contending team.

Derrick Henry (RB – TEN): ECR39, RB15

Every year I do this. Every year, I have Derrick Henry on all sorts of “avoid” lists. Trade him in dynasty. Don’t take him in redraft leagues. And every year Henry continues to give me the middle finger.

Yet here I am again. Henry turned 29 in January and is coming off another 300+ touch season. The Titans are undergoing a wholesale change offensively, and Malik Willis looked completely lost in his brief appearances this year.

Derrick Henry is the Titans’ offense. And maybe he’ll just somehow avoid injuries and simply accumulate 1,500 yards and 10 touchdowns on pure volume. But if you’ve ridden Henry this far, now might be the time to cut bait while his value is still pretty high.

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.

Kyle Pitts (TE – ATL): ECR11, TE1

How on earth is Kyle Pitts the 11th player in dynasty leagues right now? This rank feels more predicated on hoping and praying than what we’ve actually seen. I think he’s a tremendous trade candidate because people will continue to believe and therefore make excuses.

Last year, the excuse was terrible quarterback play and a lack of touchdowns. This year, the excuses will be more terrible QB play and an injury that cost him the final eight games of the year.

That’s all well and good, but Pitts was still pretty inefficient in his second season. He caught just 28 of his 59 targets, and his yards per reception went down despite his average depth of target going up. But hey, he doubled his touchdown total this year from one to two!

The quarterback play is sure to get better for the Falcons in 2023. And maybe Atlanta won’t be as run-heavy as they were in 2022. But Drake London is an emerging star who will compete for targets. And I don’t envision the Atlanta offense becoming a wagon overnight.

If someone in your league is willing to pay a premium for Pitts, do it.
