Dynasty Trade Advice: Justin Herbert, Baker Mayfield, Will Levis (Fantasy Football)

Dynasty Trade Advice: Justin Herbert, Baker Mayfield, Will Levis (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 managers in your league aren’t offering discounts at the top, try looking a little further down the rankings for values instead. These are quarterbacks in rockier situations with more uncertain futures. That being said, all three are definite starters for 2024 and potentially longer. These are terrific QB2 options for Superflex leagues but also great options for backups with upside in 1-QB leagues.

Justin Herbert looks to be in the worst position of the three with the addition of Greg Roman and Jim Harbaugh to the coaching staff. Roman specifically wrecked a lot of Jackson’s passing value but Jackson was able to make it up with his feet. I’m not sure Herbert can do the same. On top of that, the top two receiving options on the Chargers are Quentin Johnston and Josh Palmer. Yikes. Regardless, Herbert is young and could easily see a bounceback this season depending on how the draft goes.

Baker Mayfield is an older QB who is perceived as being on a short leash. I don’t think he is. Mayfield finished as the QB16 in points per game (PPG) last year (QB10 overall), which is very good for a QB2 in fantasy. The team doesn’t seem interested in moving on from him either. Tampa Bay gave him a massive three-year, $115 million deal this offseason. With all of the other questions they have to address at the draft, I’d be shocked if they drafted anyone to challenge his role on the team.

Unlike Mayfield, Will Levis struggled a little bit last year, but he was a rookie on a team in turmoil, so I’m willing to let that slide. Now he gets a full offseason as the starter, a new offensive-minded head coach in Brian Callahan and some terrific new weapons in Tony Pollard and Calvin Ridley. I think Levis takes a big step up this year and I’m fine acquiring him at his current dynasty value. He’s currently being ranked behind Justin Fields, who is potentially a backup. That’s great value.
