Dynasty Trade Advice: Tank Bigsby, Chase Brown, De’Von Achane, Jahmyr Gibbs

Now that the dust has settled on the 2023 NFL season, it’s time to look back at what this surprising rookie class accomplished and what it could mean for their future in the NFL and your dynasty fantasy football teams. Here is how to approach second-year NFL players in your dynasty drafts and trades.

2023 Dynasty Trade Advice

The running backs of the 2023 class gifted us with one of the best classes we have seen in a long time. We can now say we have three players firmly in the top 10 at the position: Bijan Robinson, Jahmyr Gibbs and De’Von Achane.

Lost in Arthur Smith not giving Robinson the work he deserves, the Texas product still compiled just shy of 1,500 total yards and eight touchdowns while falling just shy of 60 receptions. Now he gets a refresh at head coach and offensive coordinator, the latter coming directly from the Sean McVay coaching tree. Robinson is firmly planted as the dynasty RB1 overall.

When it comes to Gibbs, I don’t see a point in arguing if he is the RB2 or RB3 in dynasty formats, but he is in that tier. David Montgomery won’t disappear completely, and that is the only reason he isn’t in the conversation to be at the top of the running back position. Gibbs put up over 16 PPG and was the RB10 on the season in 2023 while playing under 50% of snaps in five of his 15 games. He totaled over 1,200 total yards, adding 11 touchdowns and 52 receptions in his rookie year with the Lions. Gibbs was the spark to this already impressive offense, and in 2024, I would not be surprised if he took on more rushing work. He is a different player than Bijan Robinson and Breece Hall. Still, he is the only current running back that can join those two as an elite dynasty option at running back, regardless of whether you are a contender or rebuilding in 2024.

Achane proved a lot of doubters wrong in 2023. He landed in the perfect system for his skill set and capitalized on it in a big way. He nearly eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark and racked up 11 touchdowns for the Dolphins, all while seeing over 50% of snaps only four times all season. The big question mark for Achane will be health, as he had a brief IR stint and durability concerns all season. In 2024, I expect him to be a top-15 RB. With health, he could find his way into the top-five conversation. He currently sits as my dynasty RB8.

We won’t spend too much time on the next group of running backs. These players are either stuck behind the true starter or on the smaller portion of a committee. Zach Charbonnet, Tyjae Spears, Roschon Johnson and Kendre Miller are firmly stalled as dynasty RB3s with the potential to be elite assets if they were to inherit larger workloads. I am happy to invest in each of these players at their current dynasty ADP.
