Dynasty Draft Advice: De’von Achane, Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle

When it comes to dynasty fantasy football draft prep and advice, the offseason can be one of the most exciting times of the entire season, especially for those perpetual rebuilders in your league (don’t be them). The problem can be keeping up with all of the changes in rosters across the league. Let’s take a look at the AFC East Dynasty Draft Primer.

Luckily, the FantasyPros team is here to help with their dynasty draft advice, diving into each division and telling you exactly which players you should not only keep an eye on but should be looking to acquire in your dynasty leagues as you prepare for your drafts.

Dynasty Draft Advice

We dive into the AFC East division and examine the dynasty draft outlook for each team. Let’s get into it.

Miami Dolphins

Names to Know

The Dolphins had a phenomenal season, posting an 11-6 record. They, too, fell short of the ultimate goal but had some fantasy football superstars emerge along the way. Tua Tagovailoa had his first full season in the NFL, posting career-best numbers in every passing category. He ended the year as the QB9 and finds himself in the mid-range QB2 range for dynasty purposes, currently my QB18. He provides little value as a runner and is heavily reliant on his offenses, such as his run-after-the-catches ability. He is largely off your radar if you aren’t in SuperFlex leagues.

When you look at the Dolphin’s skill players, you see SPEED, and that rings true with their top three running backs. Devon Achane, Raheem Mostert, and rookie Jaylen Wright. Achane struggled with injury on and off all season. Something that may plague his entire career, but what he was able to accomplish when he was on the field was historic. He averaged over 7.5 yards per carry (YPC) in 2023 while adding eight touchdowns.

Achane could give us one of the best seasons by a running back ever if he can play even a 14-game season in 2024. That being said, he is my dynasty RB8 with the potential to blow that ranking out of the water. Raheem Mostert’s time in Miami may be coming to a close with the addition of Jaylen Wright in the draft, but until that time comes officially, he has some solid running back utility. Wright has more value than Mostert in dynasty leagues, not just because he is younger but because the former also struggles with injury.

If Wright gets a regular run in Miami, he fits the scheme well and could be a potential league winner, but until then, he is a premier handcuff and my RB38 in the dynasty.

Now to the pass catchers. Tyreek Hill posted an incredible season in 2023. He fell just short of 1,800 yards and 13 touchdowns in 16 games. Now entering his age 30 season, he could see a bit of regression, but not one that removes him from the top wide receivers in the league. If you are a contending team, you have a top-10 wide receiver for redraft and dynasty on your roster, and you should enjoy the ride.

Rebuilding rosters should look to tier down slightly and go for youth at the position. Think Brandon Aiyuk, Malik Nabers, Rome Odunze. The next man-up is something like a Tyreek Hill clone in Jaylen Waddle. Waddle dealt with injuries last year and had to fight off Hill for targets, which is no easy feat. Still, he was able to eclipse 1,000 receiving yards. Waddle is young enough to still make a name for himself in dynasty circles and is a top 15 dynasty wide receiver.

Waddle will be the primary beneficiary if Hill were to see any regression this year, and with a down year in 2023, he may be a substantial value in your league for 2024. To touch briefly on the rest of this group, Odell Beckham Jr. provides some flex and bye week fill-in value in dynasty leagues, but he is far from an asset you should be looking to invest in. Because of his presence, Malik Washington and other Miami receivers are unlikely to see any significant portion of targets.

Finally, tight end Jonnu Smith was brought in during the offseason to be a mismatch and a different kind of player than the rest of the names above. He could be a sneaky TE1 candidate in 2024 for contending rosters.
