Dynasty Trade Advice: Javonte Williams, Davante Adams, Justin Herbert, Patrick Mahomes

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 1-QB 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 AFC West. Here’s my dynasty trade advice for the AFC West.

Dynasty Trade Advice: AFC West

Javonte Williams (RB – DEN)

Some believe Javonte Williams might not be a Bronco come September. Yet, the former UNC star is the top running back and dynasty asset in Denver. He was the RB30 in 2023, averaging 9.7 half-PPR fantasy points per game. However, Williams was coming off a massive knee injury from the year before. Hopefully, he can bounce back to his rookie season play. Williams had the second-best missed tackles forced per attempt rate in the NFL that year (28%) among running backs with at least 101 attempts, per Fantasy Points Data.

Patrick Mahomes (QB – KC)

Patrick Mahomes was the QB8 last year, averaging 17.5 fantasy points per game. It was the first time the superstar averaged fewer than 20.5 fantasy points per game in the season since becoming the starter in 2018. Yet, he should be the first quarterback drafted this year. He has led the NFL in passing touchdowns twice in his six seasons as the starter, posting a 6.1% touchdown rate in his career. More importantly, Mahomes will have two talented young wide receivers at his disposal for the next several years.

Davante Adams (WR – LV)

Many fear Davante Adams’ production will fall off a cliff this upcoming season. However, he had his fourth consecutive top-12 finish in half-PPR scoring in 2023 despite playing most of the games with Aidan O’Connell under center. While Gardner Minshew isn’t a massive upgrade, the veteran gave Michael Pittman Jr. a 28.3% target share, including a 35.8% first-read target share in his 13 starts last year, per Fantasy Points Data. While his days as a clear-cut WR1 are over, Adams should have a few more seasons as a top-20 guy.

Justin Herbert (QB – LAC)

While some believe Justin Herbert will become a game manager under the new run-first offense, the coaching staff would be foolish not to take advantage of his talent. He missed four games last year because of a finger injury. Yet, Herbert was the QB8 on a points-per-game basis among quarterbacks with at least nine starts. While the Chargers moved on from Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, they drafted Ladd McConkey and two other rookie wide receivers. Herbert won’t have a top-five finish in 2024 but don’t rule it out in 2025.
