Dynasty Trade Advice: NFC South (2024 Fantasy Football)

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

Dynasty Trade Advice: NFC South

Top Dynasty Trade Assets

Bijan Robinson (RB – ATL)

Unfortunately, Arthur Smith’s nonsense led to Robinson having a disappointing rookie year. Thankfully, Smith was replaced by Zac Robinson, meaning the former Texas superstar should have a breakout season in 2024. Despite having only 28 more rushing attempts than Tyler Allgeier, Robinson was the RB9 last year, averaging 12.8 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. Furthermore, he had the second-highest missed tackles forced per attempt rate (28%) among running backs with at least 150 rushing attempts. Robinson will be the near consensus 1.01 pick in 1QB dynasty startup drafts in 2025.

Jonathon Brooks (RB – CAR)

There are conflicting reports about whether Brooks will be ready for the start of training camp next month. However, that shouldn’t matter to dynasty players. The former Longhorn averaged 6.1 rushing yards per attempt and 113.9 yards per game last season. Furthermore, he had the 11th-most missed tackles forced (63) in 2023 despite missing the final four games with the injury (per PFF). Last year, Dave Canales made Rachaad White an RB1 despite averaging only 3.6 yards per rushing attempt. Canales will turn Brooks into a fantasy star once healthy.

Chris Olave (WR – NO)

Olave is the only wide receiver from the 2022 NFL Draft class to finish inside the top 25 each of the past two seasons. He was the WR16, averaging 14.5 half-point PPR fantasy points per game despite ranking 28th among wide receivers in receiving touchdowns (five) last year. Furthermore, he was 12th in air-yards share (39.2%) among wide receivers (per Fantasy Points Data) while posting a higher yards per route run rate than Ja’Marr Chase (2.18 vs. 2.14). Don’t be surprised if Olave has a breakout season under Klint Kubiak.

Rachaad White (RB – TB)

While fantasy players should sell high on White (more on that later), the former Arizona State star is the top dynasty asset on the Buccaneers. He was the RB7, averaging 13.9 half-point PPR fantasy points per game last season. White joined Breece Hall and Christian McCaffrey as the only running backs with over 900 rushing yards and 500 receiving yards. Unfortunately, he averaged only 1.4 yards per rushing attempt before contact last year (per Fantasy Points Data). Hopefully, his average increases after Tampa Bay improved their offensive line this offseason.

Top Dynasty Trade Candidates

Rondale Moore (WR – ATL)

There is much to love about Atlanta’s offense, making it hard to label a clear-cut trade candidate. Moore has been a massive fantasy bust, averaging only 6.4 half-point PPR fantasy points per game in his career, totaling three receiving touchdowns in 39 games. Furthermore, the former Purdue star was traded for Desmond Ridder this offseason, showing his lack of NFL trade value. Moore might be on the waiver wire in shallower dynasty leagues. Therefore, fantasy players need to take the best available offer for him and move on.

Jonathan Mingo (WR – CAR)

The worst thing fantasy players can do is not accept when things don’t go the way they had hoped. I was a big fan of Mingo’s 12 months ago. Unfortunately, he had a disappointing rookie season, ending the year as the WR84, averaging only 4.2 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. More importantly, the Panthers showed they have little faith in him, adding Diontae Johnson and Xavier Legette this offseason. It’s time for fantasy players, including myself, to move on from Mingo and take the best available offer.

Alvin Kamara (RB – NO)

Over 17% of Kamara’s half-point PPR fantasy points the past two years were from receptions, while 47.4% came in the passing game. The veteran was once an explosive running back, averaging five yards per rushing attempt over the first four seasons of his career. Unfortunately, he has averaged four or fewer yards per rushing attempt in three consecutive years. Furthermore, Kamara has 11 rushing touchdowns over the past three seasons after totaling a career-high 16 in 2020. Now is the time to sell high on the veteran running back.

Rachaad White (RB – TB)

Some will say White can’t be the best dynasty asset and top trade candidate, but that’s how selling high works. The former Arizona State star was an RB1 last year because of volume, not his talents. White was second in rushing attempts (272) but 14th in yards (990). Furthermore, he ranked 89th in yards after contact per attempt, 84th in missed tackles forced per attempt, and 76th in explosive run rate in 2023 (per Fantasy Points Data). Meanwhile, Bucky Irving should cut into White’s workload this upcoming season.
