Dynasty Trade Advice: Players on New Teams to Buy or Sell

Which player who changed teams this offseason are you buying now in dynasty leagues and why? Also, what are you willing to give up to get him?

Diontae Johnson (WR – CAR)

“Interest in Diontae Johnson seems tepid at best, but this seems like an opportune time to buy. Johnson has long been a high-volume receiver who always commands heavy targets. He’s averaged 9.0 targets per game over the last four seasons. After moving from Pittsburgh to Carolina, Johnson will be the undisputed No. 1 receiver for a Panthers offense that should be better now that new head coach and noted QB whisperer Dave Canales is working with second-year QB Bryce Young. It’s worth remembering that 11 weeks into the 2023 season — and despite Carolina’s offensive struggles — Adam Thielen was WR10 in PPR fantasy scoring, averaging 9.7 targets and 7.6 catches per game over that stretch. That’s the sort of target and catch upside Diontae Johnson has for Carolina this year, except Johnson won’t average under 10 yards per catch the way Thielen did last season.”

Diontae Johnson remains a buy. He left one underwhelming receiving depth chart to join another and should be considered the immediate WR1 in Carolina. When he was healthy last year, he was still “the guy.” Once he returned from injury in Week 7, he continued to gobble up targets like usual, ranking 14th in target share (23.7%), sixth in air-yard share (41.6%), and 20th in FD/RR (0.109, per Fantasy Points Data). Any 2025 second-round pick that I’m projected as a mid or late pick, I’ll happily swing in a trade for Johnson.”

Curtis Samuel (WR – BUF)

Curtis Samuel is someone I want in dynasty leagues right now for several reasons. In his last draft as the Panthers assistant GM, Brandon Beane helped draft Curtis Samuel, now he’s finally got him back in Buffalo and reunited him with offensive coordinator Joe Brady, also formerly of the Panthers. Samuel averaged 9.08 mph within the first second of his routes in 2023, the 3rd-quickest in the NFL, while Bills wide receivers averaged a 7.95 mph burst last season, 29th in the NFL. Curtis Samuel gives them more speed than they had in 2023, and he will be a versatile part of this new-look offense. I would pay up to the 2.07 for Samuel in Superflex leagues or the 2.03 in single QB leagues.”

Jerry Jeudy (WR – CLE)

“The Jerry Jeudy experience has been a weird one, but I’m intrigued both by what he could do in Cleveland and what his current price tag is. Jeudy’s stock is down in dynasty, and I’m looking to take a flyer if the price is right. The Browns traded for Jeudy and immediately gave him a decent three-year deal. We’ll see how the targets and everything else shakes out this season, but Amari Cooper has been doing just fine since he landed in Cleveland, and he turns 30 in a couple of weeks. If I can flip a Zack Moss or an Austin Ekeler for Jeudy, I’d do it in a heartbeat.”

Which player who changed teams this offseason are you selling now in dynasty leagues and why? Also, what kind of return are you looking for?

Keenan Allen (WR – CHI)

“Fantasy players were likely looking to trade Keenan Allen in January. Yet, the trade from the Los Angeles Chargers to the Chicago Bears has made dealing away the star wide receiver significantly more critical. Allen was the WR8 in 2023 despite missing four contests, averaging 17.3 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. However, the veteran is a volume-based receiver, averaging 9.4 targets per game in his career. Unfortunately, he won’t see the same target share in Chicago alongside DJ Moore, Rome Odunze, and Cole Kmet. Furthermore, Allen has missed 11 games over the past two years because of injury. I would happily flip him for a mid-second-round rookie pick in superflex leagues.”
Mike Fanelli (FantasyPros)

Zack Moss (RB – CIN)

“A short burst of dazzling production from Zack Moss early last season with the Colts spiked his dynasty value, which remains relatively high now that Moss is in the running to replace Joe Mixon as the Bengals’ lead back. During a four-week stretch last year from Week 2 to Week 5, Moss rolled up 445 rushing yards, 72 receiving yards and four TDs, averaging 21.4 PPR fantasy points per game. Colts RB Jonathan Taylor was on IR for three of those four weeks, and Moss benefitted from playing with QB Anthony Richardson, whose rushing ability spikes the efficiency of the RBs with whom he plays since defenses have to honor the possibility of Richardson faking a handoff and keeping the ball himself. From Week 6 on (after Richardson had gone on IR), Moss averaged 3.7 yards per carry. Aside from that nice four-week run, Moss has done little in four NFL seasons to suggest that he can be a valuable long-term dynasty asset. It’s possible he plays a major role for the Bengals this year, but I’d rather bet on the younger, faster Chase Brown, who’s also a better pass catcher.”
Pat Fitzmaurice (FantasyPros)

Calvin Ridley (WR – TEN)

Calvin Ridley is a player that I’ll be looking to offload. First, I have no faith in Will Levis, so I have big-time concerns about Levis capping his upside in 2024. While Ridley finished as the WR27 in fantasy points per game last year, his deeper efficiency metrics make me worry. Last season, among 81 qualifying receivers, he ranked 44th in yards per route run and 42nd in first downs per route run (per Fantasy Points Data). This could be the last chance (or early in-season) to trade away Ridley for decent value (a 2025 2nd-round pick).”
Derek Brown (FantasyPros)

Calvin Ridley worries me. I know many people are fans of his, but his new spot in Tennessee doesn’t make me feel warm and fuzzy. DeAndre Hopkins should still warrant WR1 attention, and as fun as QB Will Levis looked last year, he might not be the real deal. With the change from Derrick Henry to Tony Pollard at running back, I’m just not sure I want any Titans at their current prices. If I had Ridley, I’d be looking to sell for something else.”

D’Andre Swift (RB – CHI)

“There are a lot of reasons to be excited about the Chicago offense based on what they did this offseason. I don’t think D’Andre Swift is one of them. And that’s especially true when it comes to dynasty leagues. Swift doesn’t turn 26 until January and doesn’t have a ton of wear and tear because he’s missed so much time over the first four seasons of his career. But 2023 was the first time Swift played a full season, and he faded in the second half after a strong start despite playing in one of the best rushing offenses in football. The Bears invested in Swift with a three-year deal, but they still have Khalil Herbert and Roschon Johnson in that backfield. At best, Swift loses meaningful snaps and touches to Herbert and co. At worst, injuries or poor performance turn this into more of a timeshare backfield. I’m selling high while Swift’s value is at its apex to see if I can swing a WR like Christian Watson or Terry McLaurin in a deal.”

Derrick Henry (RB – BAL)

“Yes, the Ravens needed a running back like Derrick Henry, and yes, of course, he can be excellent in an offense where Gus Edwards had 810 yards and 13 touchdowns, but it’s also true that Henry is 30 years old, and this will likely be your last opportunity to sell Henry before his value declines. If you can get anything higher than the 2.04 in Super Flex leagues or the 1.08 in Single QB, then it’s an easy click.”
