Dynasty Trade Advice: Ezekiel Elliott, Daniel Jones, Dallas Goedert, Austin Ekeler

Several factors go into building a consistently elite dynasty fantasy football team. One of those is identifying the top player on every NFL team. Another is knowing which players you should trade away before their fantasy value decreases. All of this boils down to your dynasty trade strategy.

Typically, the starting quarterback is the top dynasty asset on every NFL team in superflex leagues. However, they are rarely the top asset in 1QB leagues. To help you build the best dynasty fantasy football team possible, I will identify the top dynasty asset and sell candidates for every NFL team.

Today, I break down the NFC East teams. Here’s my dynasty trade advice for the NFC East.

Dynasty Trade Advice: NFC East

Ezekiel Elliott (RB – DAL)

Elliott was the RB32 last season despite being the featured guy for a fourth of the year, averaging 8.8 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. He ranked last in explosive run rate (0.5%) and 45th among 49 running backs with at least 100 rushing attempts last season (per Fantasy Points Data). While the veteran is returning to Dallas as the de facto starter after a year with the New England Patriots, the Cowboys offensive line lost multiple starters this offseason. Take the best offer on the table for Elliott today.

Daniel Jones (QB – NYG)

Unfortunately, fantasy players won’t receive much for Jones in a superflex league, let alone 1QB leagues. The former sixth-overall pick is coming off a torn ACL. More importantly, he has averaged only 0.8 passing touchdowns and 14.7 fantasy points per game since his rookie season, posting only one top-20 finish in his career. Jones likely won’t be a starting quarterback in 2025, as the Giants can release him after the upcoming season. Furthermore, Drew Lock could steal his starting job over the next few months.

Dallas Goedert (TE – PHI)

While Goedert remains a solid starting-caliber NFL tight end, fantasy players should trade away the veteran. He averaged 7.6 half-point PPR fantasy points per game, his lowest average since his rookie season. Furthermore, Goedert had three receiving touchdowns in 2023, making it the third time in the past four years that he had three or fewer scores. The Eagles’ passing attack flows through A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith, leaving the tight end fighting for targets. Moreover, his role in the passing game will decline with Saquon Barkley in town.

Austin Ekeler (RB – WAS)

Adding Ekeler was an outstanding move for the Commanders, as the veteran is a solid pass protector and a reliable receiver out of the backfield. However, Brian Robinson Jr. will be the lead back and the goal line specialist in 2024. Ekeler has had back-to-back seasons with a 2.99 or lower yards after contact per attempt average after averaging at least 3.01 or more yards each of his first five years in the NFL (per PFF). Furthermore, the veteran recently turned 29 and could have trouble finding a home next offseason.
