Would you believe me if I told you that Leonard Fournette, Dalvin Cook, and Josh Jacobs each averaged between 100 and 110 all purpose yards per game in their rookie campaigns? Although the dynasty community will admit Jacobs is a great rookie back, he tends to not get the love that other running backs with the draft capital and first-year production tend to after their rookie seasons. Josh Jacobs clearly delivered as the consensus 1.01 for the 2019 fantasy rookie drafts from the start – in his first start he became the second back to have two touchdowns alongside 100yds since LaDainian Tomlinson in a debut game.
Free agency has come and gone, and as always, there are major shake-ups that have major dynasty implications. We will look at some of the transactions with the largest consequences and forecast what they mean for fantasy football in 2020 and beyond. While our main focus will be 2020, consider most, if not all of these observations to be true for the future as well.
In this installment of the IDP scouting report, I’m going to go over second year defensive ends. When it comes to the defensive line in dynasty leagues, in your smaller leagues, especially ones that have the DL (defensive line) designation, defensive ends are what you want to target.
Leonard Fournette always feels like the most nauseating top tier asset in the dynasty community. Whether it’s his injuries, team, or yards per carry, there is always an argument against his production. Commonly lost in this conversation is that he’s one of the most physically gifted backs in the league. Weighing in at 228 pounds and standing 6 feet tall, Leonard is only 9 pounds lighter and 3 inches shorter than Derrick Henry. Oh, and fun fact: in 2017 Leonard Fournette posted the top two fastest speeds for any player during the NFL season clocking 22.05mph and 21.76 mph respectively (yes, this includes Tyreek Hill).
The Dynasty Economist article series displays a current player’s value in the dynasty community. From this, I will outline statistics that will give evidence to indicate if each player is better or worse than that perceived value.

One of the most popular Sell High’s is Aaron Jones. It’s easy to see why, 19 total touchdowns (23 including the postseason), lack of receiving options on the packers, and a “split” backfield. However, what if I told you he might be a buy?
Time has passed and you are no longer the armpit of your league, but you’re also not really a playoff contender. You’re in No Man’s Land. This is probably the toughest place to be in fantasy, because you are still losing a considerable amount, but you don’t have as much draft capital to make things better. Worry not, because No Man’s Land is a step that most have to go through on their way to greatness. Let’s look at some aspects of this rebuild together.
