Top 10 Dynasty Sells in the 2021 Offseason
We’re going to take a look at the Top 10 Dynasty Sells in the 2021 Offseason and see who you need to be looking to trade this offseason either due to their lack of production or prediction that their value can’t get any higher. It’s important to preface that some of the players on the list are good for those who are in win-now situations.

10. Darren Waller
Listing Darren Waller in my top 10 dynasty sells this offseason may come as a surprise to some as he’s finished as a top 3 TE the past 2 seasons, but I think that his value has peaked. He’s not someone I’d advise you to sell low on by any means, but if you can get value back in a trade, it may be worth moving on from him though.
Some players you should target are Allen Robinson, Keenan Allen, Kenny Golladay, Amari Cooper, Tee Higgins or Antonio Gibson. Out of these guys, Tee Higgins would be my main target because he is underrated, and you could probably get draft capital packaged with him for Waller. Speaking of draft capital, Darren Waller would be worth pick 1.02 or 1.03 in 1QB leagues and 1.04 in Superflex leagues. QBs to target in SF would be Matt Ryan, Kirk Cousins, Carson Wentz and Jared Goff.
9. Derrick Henry
Another top finisher in his position, Henry has finished at a top 5 RB the past 2 years. Almost all his production comes from rushing yards and TDs as he barely sees any work in the passing game. That’s not necessarily the reason he’s in my top 10 dynasty sells. He just turned 27, so he’s getting up there in years which rarely bodes well for a RB in the NFL. There’s no doubt he’ll preform at a high level again next year, but there’s no way his value will ever match what it is this offseason, so it may be time to target one of the top 2020 rookie RBs.
When it comes to draft capital, it’s going to take more than the 1.01 in both 1QB and SF formats for me to let Henry go. Players to target would be Davante Adams, Jonathan Taylor, D’Andre Swift and some picks, DK Metcalf, AJ Brown and DeAndre Hopkins. These are all guys I’m looking at since they have more years to produce than what I expect Henry to. In Superflex, Mahomes, Murray, Watson and Allen are all guys I want on my team over Henry. Look to see if you can make any of these a reality.
8. D.J. Chark
Jacksonville is expected to draft Trevor Lawrence with the 1st pick in the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft, so Jaguar players have seen their values skyrocket. Chark is one of the guys who’s seen by many as the top WR in Jacksonville, but I don’t think he will be, and for that reason he’s a sell for me. His rookie season he was WR145 while following up with a WR17 finish in 2019. This past year he regressed and finished as the WR49. Teammates Laviska Shenault (WR45) and Keelan Cole (WR48) both finished higher than him in PPR. He’s a definite top 10 dynasty sells this offseason.
He’s viewed as having draft value of the 1.04 pick in 1QB and 1.05 or 1.06 in Superflex formats. Tom Brady would be my target in SF if I’m in a win now situation. Daniel Jones, Derek Carr and Sam Darnold are the others with similar value, but I’d go Carr over all those options. In 1QB & SF, players to target are James Robinson, Diontae Johnson, Mark Andrews, T.J. Hockenson, Julio Jones and JuJu Smith-Schuster. If you want a Jags asset, then trade for Shenault and some because I think he has a better chance of leading the team than Chark does.
7. Robert Tonyan
Number 7 on my top 10 dynasty sells list this offseason is the versatile TE/WR Robert Tonyan. The Indiana State product didn’t play a game his first year in the league and had just 14 receptions for 177 yards and 2 TDs the following 2 seasons. He broke out in 2020, finishing as the TE4 and WR38 as he became a go to target for Aaron Rodgers. The fact of the matter is that most of his production came from his 11 TD catches. There’s a very slim chance he repeats this feat, making him a clear choice for my top 10 dynasty sells.
He’s worth a mid 2nd round pick, which may be worth it considering how deep the WR class is this year. I’m targeting Christian Kirk, Michael Pittman Jr., Logan Thomas, Darnell Mooney, Marvin Jones Jr. and Jamison Crowder as players I’d trade Tonyan for. The QBs to target in SF would be Jameis Winston, Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock.
6. Chris Carson
Chris Carson has been consistently producing for fantasy managers for the past 3 years, but I expect a steep drop-off in 2021. He’ll be 27 years old shortly after the start of next season and is a free agent this offseason. Rashaad Penny should be healthy, but as always that’s subject to change. There’s speculation the Seahawks could draft a RB which would only make sense if they move on from Carson. No matter where he ends up, look to get the most bang for your buck this offseason before his value decreases. With all this, he finds himself as one of my top 10 dynasty sells.
He’s got a great draft pick value of a mid 1st round pick in both 1QB and SF formats. I’m taking this value all day with the talent pool in the 2021 NFL Draft. Mark Andrews and T.J. Hockenson are guys I’m pursuing if I have a TE need. If you’re looking to swap for another RB, target Kareem Hunt. Those looking for a WR, go after JuJu Smith-Schuster and Julio Jones. In SF, QBs I’m targeting are Tom Brady, Jimmy Garoppolo and Daniel Jones.
5. Will Fuller
Will Fuller showed great potential in 2020, so why is he one of my top 10 dynasty sells? Fuller has never stayed healthy enough to play all 16 games in his 5 seasons in the league. He’s missed a total of 27 games over those 5 years. With DeAndre Hopkins gone, Fuller stepped up in a big way and balled out until he got injured for the rest of the season in Week 13. He’s a free agent, and his future is up in the air. I’m selling to anyone who has bought into him.
He’s currently holding a late 1st round pick value in 1QB and SF formats. I love the price point here because he is a solid WR, but if you can’t stay healthy, I’m going to get someone who will. Players to target are Deebo Samuel, A.J. Dillon, Noah Fant, Laviska Shenault and Jarvis Landry. In SF leagues, target Tom Brady, Jimmy Garoppolo and Daniel Jones. There are a few other players who have similar values who’re also some of my top 10 dynasty sells this offseason, so you might see similarities throughout.
4. Tyler Lockett
If you managed Tyler Lockett in 2020, your fantasy team probably lived and died at the hands of this man. He may have finished as the WR8 in PPR, but he was the 44th ranked WR in consistency. After his Week 7 performance of over 50 fantasy points, he was seen as a top asset, but that didn’t last long. I think you need to find some people in need of WRs in your league and send him away for some younger and more consistent compensation. He lands on my top 10 dynasty sells this offseason due to his inability to be reliable.
Like #5 (Fuller) on my top 10 dynasty sells, Lockett is also worth a late 1st round pick in 1QB and SF formats. All targets for 1QB and SF are the same as Will Fuller as well. These two guys are heavily linked together in value. If you’re wondering who I think is more valuable out of the two, it’s Tyler Lockett.
3. Ezekiel Elliott
It should come as no surprise to see Zeke as one of the top 10 dynasty sells this offseason. Thankfully it looks as though Dak will be put on the franchise tag at the very least, so you’ll have him to boost Zeke’s value in 2021. The part we have to mention is that Zeke’s value won’t be getting any higher, so we need to take that into account. He’s only of value to me in dynasty if you are a win now team, because we could see a steep drop off like we did in Todd Gurley this season.
His draft capitol is also as high as it’ll ever be, and that’s a top 3 rookie pick in all formats. If you can get a guy like Justin Jefferson, Stefon Diggs, D’Andre Swift, Josh Jacobs or Michael Thomas, then pull the trigger. You’ll want to target teams who are looking to win a championship in 2021. In SF, go get Justin Herbert, Joe Burrow, Russell Wilson or Aaron Rodgers on your team.
2. JuJu Smith-Schuster
Mr. Corvette Corvette made a big splash this year, but unfortunately, it wasn’t on the football field. He finished as the WR17 which was quite the upgrade from 2019. So why is the 24 year old one of my top 10 dynasty sells? He’s heading into free agency so uncertainty awaits, but he’s an overvalued WR in fantasy. He’s talented, but you can get much more productive play for you fantasy team if you sell JuJu this offseason.
His draft value is looking like the 1.04 or 1.05 pick, which is value I love. Guys like Josh Allen and Deshaun Watson are QBs I’d rather have in 1QB leagues. Players to target are James Robinson, Brandon Aiyuk, Courtland Sutton and Kenny Golladay. The QB in SF formats to pursue is Derek Carr, but I’d probably add to JuJu to get a more elite QB.
1. Ronald Jones
Number 1 on my top 10 dynasty sells this offseason is Ronald Jones. Jones and Fournette were like a poor man’s Chubb and Hunt. He holds solid value since he’s a young 23 year old who was very productive when he got the ball averaging 5.09 YPC. He finished as the RB20, and I’m selling him due to the inconsistency of touches and Bruce Arians’ feelings toward him. He’s just doesn’t get the volume needed to be a productive fantasy asset and can find himself in the Arians’ doghouse pretty quickly.
He’s going for a mid to late first round pick, and I’d take the chance on a draft pick 100% of the time. Players I’m targeting are Kareem Hunt, Chase Claypool, Kenyan Drake, Deebo Samuel and A.J. Dillon. JuJu has a similar value and someone I’d rather have. QBs to target in SF are Derek Carr and Tom Brady.
