Dynasty Fantasy Football mailbag: Is Mike Williams selling for Kenan Allen high on Survivor Harris?

I’m always grateful for the mailbag questions I got on Twitter but you guys really got it out of the park this week. We have great questions about Christian McCaffrey, Nick Chap, Mike Williams, Kenan Allen and Elijah Moore. But I’m not going to lie, I’m a huge fan of hot questions, and we’ve probably got our smartest sophistication yet for the second year in a row. Let’s start there.

Selling at a high price on Nagy Harris?

There’s a meme circulating often about Dynasty players and how once someone does something special, we’re done with them for a smaller, less compelling person. I laugh every time, and also feel a little guilty because it’s real. This question seems to fit this meme at the tee. But also, I’m 100% on board.

Harris received 381 touches in his rookie year and converted them for 1,667 yards and 10 touchdowns. Only Jonathan Taylor and Austin Eckler have scored more PPR Fantasy points. So why would we want to sell that to the world?

Harris was a bit of a translator last year. Both 3.9 yards per carry and 5.0 yards per target were below average. And the fact that he played 17 games makes his numbers in the full season even more impressive than he has been in every game. It’s been an RB8 in every game and has been closer to an RB19 than it is to an RB2. Even while the size he is King, he was very dependent on him. And he’s already talked about how he won’t be on the field as much in 2022. I also have serious concerns about whether the team will throw as many passes to the full-back now that Ben Roethlisberger is gone.

You might be thinking, “He’s back for the second year in a row, how much can an RB2 season hurt his value. Well, he’s already 24 years old. D’Andre Swift, JK Dobbins and Cam Akers are all younger than him. And many people appreciate him.” As an RB2 in the family now.I have a sixth.

So yeah, I’m definitely looking forward to selling at a high price.

Recognizing old stars when running backward

This is one of Dynasty’s biggest storylines. I’ve written about it before, but not recently. When you go back and look at my descendant rankings from September of last year, and look at their ages, you can see a tsunami coming. Christian McCaffrey, Alvin Kamara, Dalvin Cook, Ezequiel Elliott, Nick Chubb and Austin Eckler were in my top 15 at the time. They will all be 26 or 27 years old when the season starts. Some of them have already taken a huge blow to their family value. Most of the rest will be very soon.

However, McCaffrey still has More upside More than any other enemy in Fantasy Football, so I’m fine with taking him in the first round of startup. Eckler and Joe Mixon are the only ones in this age group that I’ll meet in round two. Dalvin Cook is good in the third round. But remember, my dynasty rankings are all for PPR. At a non-PPR startup, I could see Chubb creep into the second round. The most important thing is that if you invest in these people in a startup, you should shift the rest of your draft strategy towards winning now. Don’t craft McCaffrey and Cook and then surround them with newbies who need time to evolve.

As for touch-ups, I mostly think men who have seen large workloads are positive because they have proven their ability to handle large workloads. I come down for age, but not touches.

How should a champion deal with late 2022

I should start this with a disclaimer. I think the purpose of the dynasty association is to try to build a dynasty. Flags fly forever, and if I get one, I push for another. Difficult.

I don’t think there is likely to be a receiver available at 1.12 that will help you win this year’s title, so I’ll target veterans with that choice. It may not be easy this year, so you may need to add second place as well. I’ll start shooting for Brandin Cooks, Mike Williams or Keenan Allen. If that fails, I’ll move on to the set of Michael Thomas or Allen Robinson. If I really thought it would push me to the top, I’d settle for DeAndre Hopkins.

Mike Williams on Kenan Allen?

Speaking of Williams and Allen…

At Dynasty, I really prefer Williams, and the answer to the question is yes. I think Williams will oust Allen as the team’s number one receiver. I’m not quite sure that will happen this year. Then again, depending on how you define it, Williams may have done it last year. He had more yards, touchdowns, and non-PPR fantasy points than Allen last year. It even beat it at 0.5 PPR. But Allen saw another 28 goals and picked up 30 more passes which gave the veteran the advantage in PPR and gave him a claim that he still holds the crown.

Since then Allen has turned 30 and Williams has signed a $60 million extension. A change of guard is underway, but in the full PPR tournaments, I expect Allen to continue for another season.

Elijah Moore’s standings vs. Class of 2022

This is so hard I mean, technically I can only give you a link Categories. This would be the easy way out. They show Moore fourth in the 2022 class, behind Drake London, Garrett Wilson and Trillon Burks just ahead of Jameson Williams, Chris Olaf and Jahan Dotson. But that means a level of confidence that I don’t have.

Moore was impressive in those five games spanning last year, but it was just five and he’s been struggling to stay on the field the rest of the season. The fact that the Jets used the 10th overall pick on Wilson after failing to trade with Tyreek Hill does not give me confidence that they view Moore as the number one receiver either. And I’m really uncomfortable with whether Zach Wilson will develop into a midfielder who can support so many fantastic starters at a wide receiver.

It’s going to be a really big season for most of that class including Moore, DeVonta Smith and Amon-Ra St. Brown and Rashod Bateman. They all ranked between 19 and 29 in my current family rankings. I wouldn’t consider any of them to be a safe breed asset, but there is a significant uptick in all four of these assets.
