8 Dynasty Trade Targets (2024 Fantasy Football)

8 Dynasty Trade Targets (2024 Fantasy Football)

We have finally reached the offseason, and we all know the rule in dynasty: it never sleeps. With that in mind, let’s look into trade targets to keep an eye on or even start the discussion with your managers to obtain via trade. Making the correct trades could help you flourish in the future. Let’s discuss some players you should target right now this offseason.

2024 Dynasty Trade Targets

Marquise Brown (WR – ARI)

Marquise Brown did not end the season strongly once Trey McBride took over within Arizona’s offense. This was due to Kyler Murray not being 100% healthy when on the field. Brown will be the alpha wide receiver if he stays in Arizona, allowing us to have a low-end WR1/high-end WR2 on our team. Just a quick warning: there aren’t many such receivers people are willing to shop around. Take advantage now, considering Brown is also a free agent and could end up as a high-level WR2 for teams like the Cincinnati Bengals and Detroit Lions. Reuniting with Lamar Jackson on the Baltimore Ravens is also a possibility.

Gabriel Davis (WR – BUF)

I know, I know, Gabe Davis is the king of the goose egg, but hear me out on this one first before judging. Gabe Davis shouldn’t cost you much in a trade. Then, in that return, you receive a 24-year-old wide receiver who will hit the market this year. Maybe he will return to Josh Allen, which is a welcomed sight. However, he may leave and join the Houston Texans (my favorite landing spot). Now, Davis is paired with the young sensation in C.J. Stroud. Perhaps he becomes an alpha wide receiver in Carolina, who can’t build in the draft and will need to figure out moves in free agency. Now those goose eggs disappear and you have a quality Flex option while paying the price of a bench player. Don’t scoff at Gabe Davis. Zig while others zag!

Jahan Dotson (WR-WAS)

Jahan Dotson had a miserable year! However, he is still a first-round draft pick with a great rookie season. Depending on the system brought in and the rookie quarterback Washington drafts, Dotson could once again flourish like his rookie season. Inquire about his availability because managers could be panicking while only remembering Dotson through recency bias.

Antonio Gibson (RB – WAS)

Call me Rick Roll because I’ll never give up on Antonio Gibson. Gibson is a free agent this year and our guess is he moves on from the franchise that didn’t want to utilize him. He is dirt cheap right now, allowing you to acquire a starting running back or a pass-catching back on a better offense. A few teams in need of running backs are the Houston Texans, Dallas Cowboys (depending on Tony Pollard‘s contract) and possibly the Cleveland Browns, considering the age and health of their running back room.

Tyler Lockett (WR – SEA)

There is a strong chance the Seattle Seahawks will move on from Tyler Lockett — there is a potential out in his contract for 2024. The Seattle Seahawks also drafted Jaxon Smith-Njigba last season to eventually usurp the WR2 role in Seattle. If/when this happens, Lockett will be coveted around the NFL. Over a dozen teams could use his talents but the top one is the Los Angeles Chargers, if Pete Carroll lands there. We could also see him in Chicago with his old coordinator (Shane Waldron) who now works in the Windy City. Finally, one of my favorite spots to see Lockett play in 2024 would be Atlanta, but only if they end up with Russell Wilson. Tyler Lockett is a bit scary to trade for because of his age but the beauty of that issue is we don’t have to offer much to receive him.

Cade Otton (TE – TB)

Cade Otton is like that lamp in the corner of the room. You never genuinely notice it’s there but it always works when you need it to and it ties the place together nicely. Cade Otton finished the year with at least six targets in his last three games. With Baker Mayfield more than likely under center again, he should be the fourth option in the offense behind Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Rachaad White. Cade Otton is not a stud tight end like Sam LaPorta. However, he is a steady piece you can trust and will not goose-egg you in your lineups — more than you can say about half of the tight-end landscape.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire (RB – KC)

Honestly, people should pay you to take Clyde Edwards-Helaire off their roster, but that’s good for us. The Chiefs back is set to become a free agent and although he should be a complimentary piece, a fresh start with his first-round draft status attached to him will be good for the dynasty soul. We could trade for him cheaply and hope for a stellar landing spot to help elevate Edwards-Helaire into something usable or increase his trade value. Top landing spots include the Los Angeles Chargers, Houston Texans or the Minnesota Vikings.

Justin Fields (QB – CHI)

This trade will cost a pretty penny but you may catch managers panicking about the future of Justin Fields. His future is in the air, of course, but as a fantasy football player, we know what he can provide for our team. Is there a possibility he will play only 1-2 more years? Sure. However, if you are playing dynasty for three years down the road, you are misplaying the game. Let’s win and let’s win now. Fields could stay in Chicago, but since this is unlikely, he has a few options that could be exciting for his dynasty stock. Our favorite teams for him to land with are the Las Vegas Raiders, Washington Commanders and Atlanta Falcons.
