Dynasty Trade Advice: TJ Hockenson, Jameson Williams, Calvin Ridley, Tank Dell

Dynasty season is in full effect now that rookie drafts have ended and training camps are about to start. Any good dynasty manager is always looking to make a trade to help their team, but to add players you like, you first have to find pieces to trade away.

Here are seven players I’m trying to sell in dynasty leagues. Let’s dive into a few dynasty players to trade away now.

Dynasty Trade Advice: Players to Sell

Tank Dell (WR – HOU)

Thanks to a broken leg, Dell missed six total games in 2023. Because of that, he finished way down at WR39 on the year overall but was WR19 in points per game. He was productive when he was on the field, but that was then, and this is now. Since heading to IR early in Week 13, Dell was also on the wrong end of two other events. The first was that the team traded for Bills’ WR Stefon Diggs on April 3. The second was that Dell suffered a gunshot wound on April 28.

Dell was hard to defend against when he was on the field in 2023. The addition of another big mouth to feed, as well as the addition of another injury to recover from, makes me a little nervous. If you can get solid value in a trade for Dell, I say go for it because now might be the best chance you get for the next few months.

Calvin Ridley (WR – TEN)

I recently mentioned my hesitation around Ridley in a group article for FantasyPros, but I’d like to expand on that. I discussed how both QB Will Levis and WR DeAndre Hopkins make me nervous for Ridley in different ways, but this Titans team as a whole is just hard to predict. The team looks to have a true 1A and 1B at running back with Tony Pollard and Tyjae Spears, and they also added veteran WR Tyler Boyd. All of these guys will be competing with Ridley for targets in the passing game.

Ridley has also been different since his year-long suspension. Before that, he missed multiple seasons because of injury. Ridley just feels like someone I’d much rather see go off on someone else’s team than tank my own. His ceiling seems average at best, but his floor seems much lower than those valued around him. Get me off the Ridley ride, if possible. I just can’t trust him right now.

Jameson Williams (WR – DET)

This is one of those situations where the hype far exceeded the production. Williams came into the league as someone that the Lions were expecting to lean on, but they got someone they couldn’t trust at all. After being drafted 12th overall, Williams has been nothing short of a disaster for the team. He missed 11 games his rookie year due to an ACL injury and missed four games last year due to a thigh strain.

All that aside, there’s a lot of hope for Williams heading into 2024. That hope might make this the best time to get out on Williams if you’ve been holding on at all. Once he makes a great catch in practice or coach Dan Campbell hypes him up in June, send out some offers to unload him. He’s ranked around other receivers like rookie Adonai Mitchell, Jahan Dotson, and Jerry Jeudy. I’d probably rather have all three of them in dynasty over Williams straight up at this point.

TJ Hockenson (TE – MIN)

Last but not least is another player whose value was tainted by injury. Hockenson was TE4 overall in 2023 and tied with Travis Kelce for TE1 in points per game. However, all of that was before he tore his ACL and MCL against his former team in Week 16. Those kinds of injuries usually take a whole year to recover from, putting Hockenson’s status for Week 1 firmly in doubt. Whenever that happens, I tend to argue for holding rather than selling, but it’s different with Hockenson.

Due to his terrific 2023 and his name value, desperate dynasty managers should be interested in adding him. Now is the best time to ask around, too, as most rookie drafts have ended, and managers are looking at their lineups. This might be a good time to float out some offers and see if you can get a deal done for another tight end with more upside while adding another small piece at the same time.
