Dynasty Trade Advice: Jacoby Brissett, Sam Howell, Aidan O’Connell (Fantasy Football)

Dynasty Trade Advice: Jacoby Brissett, Sam Howell, Aidan O’Connell (Fantasy Football)

With the NFL Draft less than a week away, dynasty managers are champing at the bit to get their hands on these new rookies. Whenever that happens, veteran players can sometimes be overlooked, causing their prices to drop. Here are quarterbacks I’m trying to acquire before dynasty managers realize what’s going on. And be sure to also check out our dynasty fantasy football trade chart for values on all fantasy-relevant players.

Dynasty Quarterback Trade Targets

If you’re more interested in shopping in the discount bin, these are the guys for you. All three could be fantasy starters this year or not even see a start for your team. This variation in outcomes is why they’re priced so low. That being said, let me elaborate on why I like them at their price.

All three are expected to be backups, but all three could end up starting more than expected this season. Jacoby Brissett is likely getting a rookie QB to compete with in New England. Sam Howell has veteran Geno Smith in Seattle to compete with. Adrian O’Connell will have to beat out Gardner Minshew in Las Vegas. That said, all three could easily win their starting jobs at some point in the season.

For Brissett, he could see meaningful playing time as the rookie the team drafts gets up to speed. The Patriots have so many holes it could be a bad idea to throw a rookie into that system too soon. Smith has looked okay for the Seahawks but the team might want to see what they have in Howell at some point. O’Connell looked average last year, starting 10 games and finishing with a 12-to-7 touchdown-to-interception ratio.

All three seem to have the team’s backing heading into 2024 in one way or another. All three also have plenty of starting experience under their belts to be a bridge quarterback in whatever way their teams need. Bridge quarterbacks are often undervalued in dynasty due to their shorter lifespan, but those are exactly who I want to add to my bench in case of injuries or bye week needs. I’m fine adding all three of these for the right cost. Most managers are fine sending them away with the mindset that they won’t matter in the long run. That feels like a win-win.
