Winners and Losers of the 2020 NFL Draft: Quarterbacks

For dynasty team owners, the NFL draft is about landing spots. It’s not just about the rookies though. The value of the players that are already on your team can change dramatically. Your quarterback’s team might get him some brand-new weapons or they might draft his replacement. A team’s number one wide receiver or running back might become their number two in the blink of an eye. The NFL draft is so much fun for us, but it can be stressful when the picks don’t go our way. Ask Packers fans about that.

Dynasty Method: Strategies for a Rebuild

In my previous article, Dynasty Method: Win Now Trade Targets, we discussed targets that could primarily help a team that needed production this season.  In this article, we are going to discuss the opposite; moves an owner in a rebuild should consider in order to build a contending team in the future.  

Generally, a rebuilding team is going to want to sell players that may only have a year or two of tread left on their tires while acquiring younger players (preferably at a discount) or additional rookie draft capital.  This premise should be common sense.  However, it takes some soul searching to come to terms with the fact that you may need to blow up your team and start over.  Owners hold on to players for far too long because of name recognition and/or their past success with said player(s).  This article attempts to help you identify some of those players you need to cut the cord on while also trying to acquire pieces to establish future dominance.

Injury Evaluation: Players Coming Off IR

Fantasy owners alike know the feeling of anticipation of the official injury report to know whether it’s an IR designation or not. It can change your season in an instant, but knowing when to part ways or capitalize following a season ending injury can make all the difference.  Lower extremity injuries are one of the most common with the knee being injured in most cases. NFL players with isolated ACL injuries have a quicker return to play time than those with multiple ligament injuries involving ACL/MCL and worse case ACL and PCL/LCL. More importantly running backs and receivers (WR/TE) have been shown to require increased time for return to play and have shown a lower level of performance post-injury.
