Sell Gates in dynasty

As the season rolls on, it’s becoming more obvious who you should sell in dynasty formats. Likewise, those players are being replaced by new and shiner versions and could still be available in your league. Let’s look at some high and low profile players that could be on the move.


Eddie Lacy – RB – Green Bay Packers – There has been no greater disappointment this year, in re-draft or dynasty formats, than Lacy. As the starting running back on one of the top offenses in the league, Lacy seemingly had least resistance to fantasy dominance. He flashed his potential last year when he topped 1,500 yards while averaging 4.6 yards-per-carry. Heading into the 2015 season, he was consistently ranked among the top running backs in re-drafts and dynasty leagues.

    I realize buying and selling in dynasty is largely subjective but there is at least a basic framework to part of it which involves patience and/or serious investigation before committing to a buy or sell.

    Following up last week’s absurdly premature suggestion to throw in the towel and sell low on half-injured, 26 year-old, 2014 stud QB Andrew Luck with another knee-jerk reaction to sell low on half-injured, 25 year-old, 2014 stud Fat Eddie might be the worst fantasy advice I have ever read. I probably would have just moved onto the next PFF article if all this column said was ‘Eddie really, really needs to lose some weight. Sell now.’

    This is surprising because PFF is typically a great source for useful insight. I guess I should have taken my own advice and did a little investigating first and maybe I would not have been so surprised. Michael Moore proclaims we should sell Donte Moncrief a week or two before the season in this same column and only a few weeks later, totally flip-flops and advises we should now be buying Donte without ever acknowledging the former opinion.

    If there is an open spot in this guy’s dynasty league, I would love to join and stock my roster with some young, proven talent.

    To be fair though, this column is not all bad, I also considered selling Keenan Allen a couple weeks ago, but not necessarily for the same reasons.
