Dynasty Trade Advice: Terry McLaurin, CeeDee Lamb, Malik Nabers, A.J. Brown

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

CeeDee Lamb (WR – DAL)

There is no doubt that Lamb is the top dynasty asset in Dallas, even in superflex leagues. The former Oklahoma star had a breakout year in 2023, ending the season as the WR1, averaging 19.7 half-point PPR fantasy points per game despite the slow start. He set career highs in receptions (135), targets (181), receiving yards (1,749), and touchdowns (12). The Cowboys did little to improve Dak Prescott’s receiving core this offseason. Don’t be surprised if Lamb is the clear-cut WR1 in startup drafts starting in 2025.

Malik Nabers (WR – NYG)

Despite not taking an NFL snap, Nabers is far and away the top dynasty asset for the Giants. The former LSU star should be a top-20 wide receiver as a rookie, thanks to limited target competition. According to PFF, he ranked first in the rookie draft class among wide receivers in yards per route run with at least 20 targets last season (3.64). Nabers is the only Giant that fantasy players should want on their roster outside of a few late-round targets like Wan’Dale Robinson, Tyrone Tracy Jr., and Theo Johnson.

A.J. Brown (WR – PHI)

Brown has been an elite WR1 since joining the Eagles, ending the 2022 season as the WR5 and the WR7 in 2023 in half-point PPR scoring. The superstar receiver has set a career-high in receptions and targets in 2022 (88-146) and 2023 (106-158). Furthermore, Brown finished top five in receiving yards and top six in air-yardage share in both years with Philadelphia (per Fantasy Points Data) despite playing alongside DeVonta Smith. The superstar turns 27 this month, providing several more years of high-end fantasy production ahead of him.

Terry McLaurin (WR – WAS)

Fantasy players have had high hopes for McLaurin since his rookie season. Furthermore, the former Ohio State star averaged a career-high 12 half-point PPR fantasy points per game in 2020. However, he has never ended higher than the WR14 any year of his career, finishing as the WR20 or lower in all but one season. McLaurin has been held back by awful quarterback play in Washington, ranking 70th or worst in catchable target rate every year since his rookie year (per PlayerProfiler). That should change with Jayden Daniels under center.
