Well, we come into Week 11 with D’Onta Foreman as one of the best waiver add-ons, Adrian Peterson is a starting running back, and many contending teams are dealing with the loss of Cordarrelle Patterson.
It’s not exactly how we write it in the offseason, is it?
For those rebuilding, the rest of the 2021 NFL season is a bit moot, as he’s probably already trying for a few weeks to offload productive veterans for youth and picks. Value is hard to find, as young assets have well-defined roles or are too deep in the depth chart.
Let’s try to peruse the $ 5 DVD tray and find a worthwhile gem.
The advice of the Week 11 dynasty is to understand that every move is a gamble and humbly accept its fallibility. In fact, you don’t know everything and you can’t predict the future. Shocking, I know. But I’m sure you’ve come across your fair share of egos in this crazy world who seem to think they have it all figured out.
I see it like this: there is a league full of pretty good players. I want something better than pretty good. In the new draft, you will be lucky enough to have more than some of the best players in the game simply because of the nature of the snake draft. On paper, you get one of the top 12, two of the top 24, and so on, in 12-team leagues.
The point here is in dynasty, you can rack up almost any player you like, especially if you can spin and deal. Like Dwight’s “Art of the Swap” at the Dunder Mifflin Yard Sale, you can exchange a pushpin for items of increasing value. It’s knowing when to stop trading (like when Dwight switched for Michael’s telescope), rather than trading it all for a pack of Jim’s magic beans.
When looking to rebuild, looking for operations to add value every step of the way doesn’t improve your team. However, it makes you believe that your team is better, which I suppose counts for something. But you’re gambling every step of the way because it saddens me to say that we can’t really predict the future. You make your best guess and you like the late Kenny rogers He told us: “You have to know when to hold them, know when to fold them. Know when to walk away and when to run. “
Let’s ring the opening bell for Dynasty Stock Watch:
WR Robert Woods, Los Angeles Rams
Whether he’s rebuilding or trying to win his league, Woods, to me, is now a dead asset. He will be 30 next year, and while the Rams’ supporting cast has met and exceeded the high expectations of the offseason, I want to get out now. Sure, the price has to be correct. Odell Beckham Jr. will be a free agent next year. Maybe sign again. But the Rams already have Van Jefferson, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they add a receiver on Day 2 of the draft regardless of whether OBJ stays or leaves. I know the Rams have almost no picks left, but some compensatory picks are coming.
In any case, the gap between Cooper Kupp and Woods has grown since the offseason. Even if you want to pat yourself on the back and say you knew Kupp was better – at least most of them did – you probably didn’t think he would be as good as he has been this year. With that, we have a firm upper limit for Woods ‘production, barring any major injury to Kupp after Woods’ return.
There is still a long shot that Matthew Stafford will not return. He has one year left on his contract, so 2022 will be a contract year. Who knows? Stafford could ask for a monster extension after 2021 and the Rams may have to put in a lot of effort.
Los Angeles is on the hook for Woods through 2025 with $ 60 million remaining in his remaining four years. This offseason, the Rams could cut Woods just to get out of this contract. Everything is speculation.
Look, the Rams are good, Woods has been a reliable WR2 and maybe this is a half empty point of view, but owning the former USC star doesn’t thrill me after this injury. His 2021 was shaping up well, but not great. He’s a team captain. After working hard with the Bills for four years, Woods has enjoyed an incredible second half of his career since joining the Rams in 2017. I’m not trying to send the guy out to graze, but I’ll keep going for whatever I can get. for him.
Rather than committing to a deep dive into each player, the Dynasty Dynamite section offers hot shots of recent and relevant players.
QB Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs
On last week’s Dynasty Stock Watch, I crossed my fingers for a sustained splash of Mahomes; it didn’t last long. Following his Week 10 stat line (406 yards, five TDs). If you missed that item, the gist was that I was hoping he would continue to fight to make acquiring it a little easier and cheaper with each poor performance. That window, the cracked splinter that it was, now seems closed.
Winnow: HOLD FOREVER!
Rebuild: HOLD FOREVER!
Superflex: HOLD FOREVER!
Quarterbacks Mike White and Zach Wilson, New York Jets
I wrote about White two weeks ago and said keep (look, I’m optimistic!) And I wrote about Wilson three weeks ago and said sell. We already knew that White wasn’t really the guy, and some of you still need to be convinced that Wilson isn’t the guy. I don’t know what else this franchise has to do if you are still invested in some part of it.
RB Javonte Williams, Denver Broncos
Is there a juicier or more obvious player of the year 2022 candidate? You could write the preseason article now. Give this man some touches!
Winnow: TO HOLD
Rebuild: TO BUY
I’m not sure if this really fits as a buy, hold, and sell breakdown, but what is this team? My guess is that AJ Brown wore the Michael Johnson uniform in Week 10, as the fifth-year catcher increased his career stats by about 15% in one game. WR2’s work feels like a revolving door and no one can tempt me on this offense.
After two seasons of dynamite, Brown fell down and hopes to wake up the day before the 2022 season to start over with him. Ryan Tannehill is sadly taking on the role of GM with 12 TDs and 8 interceptions this year.
D’Onta Foreman and Adrian Peterson? Yuck.
You have to keep Brown and I could understand the temptation to buy Derrick Henry for the right price, or even sell him if you get banned from a postseason.
But this team? They’re 8-2, tied with the Cardinals and Packers for the best record in the NFL, but it feels like a rolling dumpster. They have a black garbage bag as a passenger window and a bumper that sticks for life with duct tape. Meanwhile, the whole trip sucks, like Jerry’s car bo. This team could lose the rest of their games and would it really surprise you? In a way, I admire it. I have to give them credit for keeping it together. This report from The Tennessean says the team has used 80 players in the games, 11 more than the next team. Like I said, admirable, even impressive. But do I want anything from this team? No thanks.
