Dynasty Trade Advice: Najee Harris, Nick Chubb, Zack Moss, Derrick Henry

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 AFC North teams. Here’s my dynasty trade advice for the AFC North, including the top dynasty asset on each team, as well as a dynasty player to trade now.

Dynasty Trade Advice: AFC North

Derrick Henry (RB – BAL)

Henry’s short-term fantasy value got a boost after signing with the Ravens in free agency. He will replace Gus Edwards and his 13 rushing touchdowns from last season. Yet, Edwards was only the RB28 on a points-per-game basis, averaging 10.6 half-point PPR fantasy points per contest. More importantly, Henry had his lowest yards per rushing attempt average (4.2) and yards after contact per attempt (3.32) since taking over as the full-time starter in 2019. Now is the time for non-contending teams to move on from the future Hall of Famer.

Zack Moss (RB – CIN)

Some have high hopes for Moss after the veteran averaged 22 touches and 12.7 half-point PPR fantasy points per game in his five healthy contests without Jonathan Taylor last season. However, his 3.1% explosive run rate, 2.29 yards after contact per attempt, and 51% stuff rate during those five games would have ranked in the bottom six among 33 running backs with at least 170 rushing attempts in 2023 (per Fantasy Points Data). Don’t be surprised if Chase Brown is the Week 1 starter, making Moss a must-sell candidate.

Nick Chubb (RB – CLE)

Unfortunately, Chubb’s 2023 season ended after two games because of a gruesome knee injury. If the veteran wasn’t coming off the second significant knee injury in his career at age 28, fantasy players should want him on their contenting rosters. However, Chubb says he’s unsure when he will play this upcoming season. Meanwhile, the Browns added D’Onta Foreman in free agency. Find the league mate who overvalues name value and get them to take Chubb off your hands as he enters the final year of his contract.

Najee Harris (RB – PIT)

Fantasy players had high hopes for Harris after he was the RB4 as a rookie. However, he had 74 receptions that year, as Ben Roethlisberger was a checkdown machine in his final NFL season. By comparison, Harris has had 70 receptions over the past two years. More importantly, Jaylen Warren could finally take over in the backfield under new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith. Plus, don’t forget about Smith’s BFF — Cordarrelle Patterson. After the Steelers declined his fifth-year option, Harris is likely heading into his final season with the team.
