Dynasty Fantasy Football Trade Target for Every NFL Team (2024)

Dynasty Fantasy Football Trade Target for Every NFL Team (2024)

The NFL offseason is in full swing. We are less than two weeks away from the start of free agency, with the 2024 NFL Draft not far behind it.

While it’s the offseason for the NFL, dynasty players never get an offseason. Dynasty leagues might not be full of action this time of the year. Yet, it’s the perfect time to make some trades.

Let’s look at one veteran for every NFL team that fantasy players should explore buying over the next few weeks.

2024 Dynasty Fantasy Football Guide

Dynasty Player to Buy from NFL Every Team

Buffalo Bills: Khalil Shakir (WR)

Buffalo’s wide receiver core could undergo significant changes this offseason. Gabe Davis is a free agent and reportedly won’t return. Meanwhile, Stefon Diggs’ future with the Bills is up in the air. He is on the wrong side of 30, has had late-season struggles in back-to-back years, and both sides might decide a divorce is best. However, Shakir will return and could have a breakout season. He averaged over 12.5 half-point PPR fantasy points per game over his final three contests, including the playoffs.

Miami Dolphins: Jaylen Waddle (WR)

The 2023 season was one to forget for Waddle. He averaged 11.6 half-point PPR fantasy points per game last year, a career-low. However, removing the Week 16 contest that Waddle left early with an injury, the receiver averaged 12.1 fantasy points per game last season. That’s the same average Waddle had as a rookie when he was the WR16. The Dolphins don’t have the resources to improve their receiving core this offseason. Waddle should easily rebound into a top-15 wide receiver next season.

New England Patriots: Rhamondre Stevenson (RB)

There is nowhere for the Patriots’ offense to go but up from here. While Stevenson’s numbers regressed from his 2022 breakout season, he was putting it together before an injury ended his year. Over his final six healthy contests, Stevenson averaged five yards per rushing attempt and 141 half-point PPR fantasy points per game, scoring 11.5 or more in all but one matchup. He wants to be the featured back next season, and New England would be foolish to use him any other way in a contract year.

New York Jets: Xavier Gipson (WR)

Last season, the Jets’ wide receiver unit was uninspiring behind Garrett Wilson. However, Gipson flashed some upside. The undrafted rookie averaged 6.8 half-point PPR fantasy points per game in the three contests with more than five targets. While that average isn’t significant, Gipson posted a 20% target per route run rate in those contests (per Fantasy Points Data). The young receiver is a cheap dynasty buy with the potential to have a larger role in his second season in the league.

2024 NFL Draft Guide

Baltimore Ravens: Rashod Bateman (WR)

Bateman flashed star potential to start the 2022 season, averaging 15.9 half-point PPR fantasy points per game over the first two weeks. Unfortunately, foot injuries forced him to miss 11 games. Last year, the former Minnesota star failed to see a consistent role on offense, earning more than four targets in only four contests. However, head coach John Harbaugh said Bateman would be a starter in 2024. If he can finally stay healthy, the former first-round receiver is an excellent buy-low candidate.

Cincinnati Bengals: Charlie Jones (WR)

According to reports, the Bengals have placed the franchise tag on Tee Higgins, meaning Tyler Boyd’s time with the team is likely over. While many label Andrei Iosivas as a dynasty trade target this offseason, his fantasy outlook took a hit with Higgins returning. Meanwhile, Jones could replace Boyd as the team’s starting slot receiver in 2024. The second-year receiver had only nine targets as a rookie. Yet, he had a dominating college career. Fantasy players might even find Jones sitting on their league’s waiver wire.

Cleveland Browns: Jerome Ford (RB)

Unfortunately, Nick Chubb suffered a gruesome knee injury last year, ending his season. Ford played well despite the return of Kareem Hunt. The second-year player was the RB17, averaging 11.1 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. He joined James Cook and Bijan Robinson as the only top-24 running backs with fewer than five rushing touchdowns. Reportedly, Chubb must take a significant pay cut to remain with the team. Furthermore, he is likely won’t be ready for Week 1. Ford could have a featured role to start the 2024 season.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Pat Freiermuth (TE)

The former Penn State star missed five games last season and struggled when playing, averaging a career-low 5.1 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. Freiermuth’s targets (36.1%) and receiving yards (43.9%) per game drop significantly from 2022 to 2023. However, the arrival of Arthur Smith is good news for the veteran tight end. The Atlanta Falcons tight ends averaged a 31.7% overall target share and a 29.3% red zone target share last year. Freiermuth could have a massive bounce-back season in the final year of his rookie contract.

2024 Dynasty Fantasy Football Guide

Houston Texans: Brevin Jordan (TE)

Houston became a fantasy-friendly offense last season. Dalton Schultz benefited from C.J. Stroud’s elite play, finishing the year as the TE11, averaging 8.1 half-point PPR fantasy points despite barely having a higher target share than Robert Woods. However, the veteran is a free agent and could leave in the offseason, making Jordan the favorite to take over as the starting tight end. He had a higher yards per route run rate than Schultz (per Fantasy Points Data). Jordan could have a breakout season in a contract year.

Indianapolis Colts: Evan Hull (RB)

A knee injury ended Hull’s rookie season early in Week 1. Unfortunately, any chance of being the starter in 2024 ended when Jonathan Taylor signed an extension. However, Hull had an impressive college career and still has fantasy upside. Zack Moss is a free agent and likely will find a better offer on the open market, making the former Northwestern star the favorite to take over as Taylor’s backup. Given the superstar’s recent injury history, Hull could become one of the top handcuffs in fantasy.

Jacksonville Jaguars: Christian Kirk (WR)

Kirk averaged 10.1 half-point PPR fantasy points per game in 2023, down from 11.8 the season before. Furthermore, his receiving touchdown total dropped by 62.5% from two years ago to last season. Meanwhile, Calvin Ridley’s future with the team is up in the air, as he is an upcoming free agent. Kirk would reclaim his No. 1 wide receiver role if Ridley doesn’t return in 2024. The last time the former Texas A&M star was Trevor Lawrence’s top wide receiver, he ended the year as the WR11.

Tennessee Titans: Derrick Henry (RB)

The Titans are heading into a rebuilding process, meaning several veterans like Henry are unlikely to return in 2024. He totaled 1,000 or more rushing yards in five of the past six years. Despite playing on a struggling offense with a terrible offensive line, the star running back ended the 2023 season as the RB8, averaging 13.7 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. Contending teams could get another massive year or two out of Henry, especially if he lands with the Baltimore Ravens this offseason.

Denver Broncos: Jaleel McLaughlin (RB)

Many believe Javonte Williams will still be a featured running back one day. Yet, that seems unlikely with Sean Payton on the sidelines. He played over 60% of the snaps in only three games last season. Meanwhile, McLaughlin had an impressive rookie year, averaging 11.8 half-point PPR fantasy points per game and 6.9 yards per rushing attempt in the four contests with at least seven attempts. If he earns a larger role in 2024, McLaughlin could become a better value running back than his teammate.

Kansas City Chiefs: Rashee Rice (WR)

Kansas City is unlikely to add anyone this offseason that can keep Rice from being Patrick Mahomes’ No. 1 wide receiver for the next several years. More importantly, the talented receiver ended his rookie season on fire, averaging 14.9 half-point PPR fantasy points per game over his final six contests. His finish to his rookie year should remind fantasy players of Amon-Ra St. Brown’s rookie season. While fantasy players will have to pay a heavy price to acquire Rice, the former SMU star is worth the cost.

Las Vegas Raiders: Zamir White (RB)

Josh Jacobs averaged 3.5 yards per rushing attempt last season after averaging 4.9 in 2022. With a new regime calling the shots, Las Vegas reportedly won’t use the franchise tag on him again, opening the door for White to have the starting role. The former Georgia star was the RB8, averaging 14.1 half-point PPR fantasy points per game during the four weeks as the starter. With Antonio Pierce back as the head coach, White could have a top-12 finish next year if he is the starting running back.

Los Angeles Chargers: Mike Williams (WR)

The Chargers will have some salary cap decisions to make this offseason. One of the players expected to get cut is Williams. The veteran averaged 13.6 half-point PPR fantasy points per game last year, making him the WR12 on a points-per-game basis. While his 2023 season was cut short by a torn ACL, the former Clemson star has been a top-10 wide receiver in the past (2021). Now is the time to buy low on Williams and hope he lands in an appealing situation this offseason.

Dallas Cowboys: Jake Ferguson (TE)

Some called Ferguson a sleeper candidate heading into the 2023 season. Yet, few expected him to turn into Dallas’ No. 2 weapon in the passing game. He finished second only to CeeDee Lamb in receptions (71), targets (102), receiving yards (761), and first-read target share (17.6%) per Fantasy Points Data. More importantly, Ferguson was the TE8 for the year, averaging 8.3 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. While he likely never becomes a star, the young tight end should be a low-end TE1 for the next several years.

New York Giants: Wan’Dale Robinson (WR)

Robinson has shown potential in his young career, but injuries have limited his production on the field. The former Kentucky star averaged only 6.9 half-point PPR fantasy points per game in 2023. However, he ended the season playing well, totaling 11 receptions on 15 targets for 140 receiving yards and 27.9 fantasy points over the final two contests. Furthermore, Robinson averaged 11.2 fantasy points per game in the four contests with more than six targets. Hopefully, the Giants’ offense can stay healthy and take a step forward in 2024.

Philadelphia Eagles: DeVonta Smith (WR)

Last year, the Eagles’ offense struggled to get in sync. While A.J. Brown had an elite fantasy season, Smith was far more inconsistent. Yet, he nearly had identical numbers last year as in 2022. Smith totaled over 1,000 receiving yards and seven touchdowns for the second consecutive season despite having 24 fewer targets. Yet, the fantasy community has a sour taste in its mouth from last year. With Kellen Moore taking over as offensive coordinator, I’m betting on the team’s passing attack rebounding after last season’s struggles.

Washington Commanders: Jahan Dotson (WR)

Many called for Dotson to have a breakout year after an impressive rookie season. Unfortunately, the young receiver struggled to connect with Sam Howell. The former Penn State star averaged only 5.9 half-point PPR fantasy points per game, down from the 9.4 average as a rookie. Furthermore, he had fewer receiving yards in 2023 compared to 2022 despite playing in five more games and seeing 22 more targets. However, Dotson is a talented receiver and should rebound next year after the Commanders select a quarterback during the NFL Draft.

Chicago Bears: Khalil Herbert (RB)

The Bears’ backfield was a fantasy nightmare in 2023. However, Herbert was the best of the bunch, ending the year as the RB42, averaging 8.5 half-point PPR fantasy points per game despite missing five contests. Furthermore, he led Chicago’s backfield in yards per rushing attempt (4.3), yard before contact per attempt (2.3), and missed forced tackle rate (26%) per Fantasy Points Data. With D’Onta Foreman unlikely to return next season, Herbert could have the lead role for the Bears.

Detroit Lions: Jameson Williams (WR)

Some fans want to see the Lions sign a big-name free agent wide receiver this offseason, but that is unlikely to happen with Amon-Ra St. Brown eligible for a massive extension. More importantly, the team has high hopes for Williams despite his limited success in his career. Detroit’s offense should be one of the best again in 2024, with Ben Johnson returning as offensive coordinator. Now is the time to trade for Williams before the explosive receiver has a breakout season.

Green Bay Packers: Jordan Love (QB)

While many could take C.J. Stroud over Love in dynasty, the Packers’ quarterback had the better fantasy season in 2023. Love was the QB5, averaging 18.8 fantasy points per game. He finished second in the NFL with 32 passing touchdowns despite missing his best receiver for nearly half the year, tossing two or more scores in 64.7% of the games. The former Utah State star was outstanding to end his first season as the starter, averaging 21.1 fantasy points per game over the final seven contests.

Minnesota Vikings: Jordan Addison (WR)

Hopefully, Kirk Cousins returns next season, as he is critical to the team’s fantasy-friendly offense. Addison ended the year as the WR21, averaging 11 half-point PPR fantasy points per game, totaling 10 receiving touchdowns. However, he was at his best with Cousins under center. The former USC star was the WR10, averaging 13.6 fantasy points per game, totaling seven receiving touchdowns in the eight contests with the veteran quarterback. With T.J. Hockenson likely to miss most of the 2024 season, Addison could have a massive sophomore-year breakout.

Atlanta Falcons: Bijan Robinson (RB)

Robinson entered the NFL with historical expectations. Unfortunately, Arthur Smith’s obsession with using Tyler Allgeier led to a disappointing rookie year for the former Texas star. Thankfully, Smith is no longer his head coach, meaning Robinson should have a featured role next year under new offensive coordinator Zac Robinson. Despite having only 28 more rushing attempts than Allgeier, the rookie was the RB9 last season, averaging 12.8 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. Expect Robinson to become a fantasy superstar in 2024.

Carolina Panthers: Bryce Young (QB)

Much has changed for Young’s fantasy value over the 12 months. Despite being a top 2-3 dynasty rookie pick last year, many won’t give up a late first-round pick for him. He was set up to fail last season, but fantasy players should explore trading for the former Alabama star. He averaged only 9.8 fantasy points per game, a lower average than Zach Wilson. Yet, Young had a few impressive performances as a rookie. Now is the time to buy low on the former No. 1 overall pick.

New Orleans Saints: A.T. Perry (WR)

The Saints lack a proven wide receiver core other than Chris Olave. Yet, Perry had a limited but promising rookie season, averaging 5.5 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. He finished third on the team in receiving touchdowns (four) despite not seeing a target until Week 10. Furthermore, the rookie ended the year playing well, scoring double-digit fantasy points in two of the final three games. With Michael Thomas unlikely to return in 2024, Perry could become a touchdown-upside starter for New Orleans.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Trey Palmer (WR)

While the Buccaneers want Mike Evans back for next season, the star receiver turns 31 in August and could start to decline. Meanwhile, Chris Godwin is entering the final year of his contract and struggled in 2023, averaging 9.9 half-point PPR fantasy points per game, his lowest average since his sophomore season. Palmer flashed potential as a sixth-round rookie, finishing third on the team in receiving touchdowns. With Russell Gage likely getting cut, Palmer is worth trading for and seeing what happens with Tampa Bay’s receiving core this offseason.

Arizona Cardinals: James Conner (RB)

There isn’t a more appealing running back to trade for as a contending team than Conner. The knock against the veteran is his injury history. However, he could be a fantasy steal if he is back with the Cardinals. The veteran has been the featured running back for the past two years, finishing no lower than the RB10 in half-point PPR scoring either season. Arizona is rebuilding and likely won’t invest much in the running back position, potentially giving Conner another year as the featured guy.

Los Angeles Rams: Demarcus Robinson (WR)

Fantasy players might find Robinson sitting on the waiver wire in their league. While Puka Nacua and Cooper Kupp remain Matthew Stafford’s top two weapons in the passing game, the veteran receiver was outstanding to end the 2023 season. He was the WR20 over the final six contests of the fantasy football season, averaging 11.5 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. Robinson has surpassed Tutu Atwell as the Rams’ No. 3 wide receiver, meaning his fantasy value could skyrocket if Nacua or Kupp misses significant time next year.

San Francisco 49ers: Jordan Mason (RB)

While everyone believes Elijah Mitchell would be the featured running back if Christian McCaffrey misses time, the former sixth-round pick has struggled with injuries in his career. Meanwhile, Mason was the far superior running back last season. He had a better yards per rushing attempt average (5.2 vs. 3.8), explosive run rate (7.5% vs. 2.7%), and yards before contact per attempt (2.2 vs. 1.08) than Mitchell (per Fantasy Points Data). Fantasy players with McCaffrey on their team will want to acquire Mason this offseason.

Seattle Seahawks: Jaxon Smith-Njigba (WR)

Smith-Njigba didn’t have a massive rookie season, but his future is bright. He was one of the top wide receivers in yards per route run among wide receivers over the past three NFL Draft classes in 2023. More importantly, Seattle can save up to $17 million in salary cap space by releasing Tyler Lockett this offseason. Even if the veteran returns, he showed signs of decline last year. Smith-Njigba should have a sophomore season jump in production and take over as the No. 2 wide receiver.
