A COVID plan for dynasty leagues

It never hurts to plan, right?  Hopefully none of this ends up being of any consequence with the exception of the IR eligibility part as that’s applicable regardless of how the season turns out.  Still, I think it’s important to have a plan in place for your leagues should the season go awry.  After all, it’s better to have a plan and not need it than to need a plan and not have it.  With that in mind, I present to you my COVID plan for dynasty leagues.

First Look: 2021 Rookie Rankings

In this article, I take an early look at the 2021 rookies.  Not every player listed has officially declared for the 2021 NFL Draft, but each player listed is eligible in 2021.  Given the unprecedented circumstances of the forthcoming college football season, some of these players have already opted-out, and are beginning to prepare for the 2o21 NFL Draft.  Meanwhile, some players have had their seasons cancelled, or postponed as of the time of this writing.  And of course some players intend to play out the scheduled season.  I’ve listed my top ten quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends.  With all of the aforementioned in mind, here is the first look at my 2021 rookie rankings.

MDF Invitational Startup Draft Results (Rounds 11-20)

The Master Drafter Football Invitational is a single copy 32 team dynasty football league comprised of dynasty league experts. Each GM has selected an NFL franchise to build from the ground up. Each team has a forty-man roster with twenty starters and twenty bench spots. There are no kickers or punters. The league is PPR, TE premium, and has equally weighted IDP scoring. Sacks are rewarded enough so that the top outside linebackers and defensive ends have as much value as the top middle linebackers and safeties. The startup draft is a 50-round marathon in which each team has a maximum of twelve hours to make their pick.

Dynasty Exchange: Players to Target and Players to Trade Away

There are many players each offseason that are under or overvalued based on many factors whether it be playing time concerns, injury risk, or projected changes in touches. Tons of players completely change course in whether they are trending up and down in fantasy circles. Some players that come to mind for me from this time last year were when Odell Beckham Jr. and Juju Smith-Schuster were being considered by most as the dynasty WR1 and WR2 respectively by many experts and analysts. Now both are being extremely undervalued as managers try to get the bad taste from last year off their team. The guys who I outline below are ones who I think you should either trade now as they are at their peak value, or players who you should try to trade for as I think they will outperform players who will be taken around them in startups.

Schultz Report: Big 4 Linebackers

Isaiah Simmons is one of the best defensive prospects I’ve ever seen. He’s a generational talent that will be moved all over the field to create mismatch nightmares for opposing offenses. He’s got the rare size/speed combination that allows him to bully would-be blockers to make plays in the backfield one play, and then seamlessly drop back into coverage and stick with pass catchers the next.

2020 NFL Draft Winners and Losers: Tight Ends

The tight end position wasn’t nearly as heralded in the 2020 draft as it was in 2019. While that was the case, it doesn’t mean that there weren’t a couple diamonds in the wasteland. Landing spot dependence for the tight end position might be one of the most important of all the positions. Some teams just don’t utilize the position well at all, and on other teams, tight ends flourish in their systems. These are the 2020 NFL draft’s biggest winners and losers from the tight end position.
