Dynasty Fantasy Football Moves to Make Heading Into Week 11


Every week from now till the end of the season, I will break down a few moves to make to help you build the ultimate dynasty and rule your leagues.


As we head into Week 11 of the fantasy season, it is make-it or break it for many of us. Additionally, this is on the eve of many league trade deadlines. Making this the last week for a rebuilding squad to make moves until their roster is frozen until January. Which can make this week a critical week to cash in on some of your aging assets. On the flip side, it is the last chance to improve your contending roster before you are dependent on the waiver wire. 

Below I have broken down a few moves to improve either a contending or rebuilding roster. 

Rebuilding Moves 

Even amid a rebuild, there are in-season moves that can help you set yourself up for success. These moves can be manageable too, the key to rebuilding is obtaining assets to set you up for long-term success. Little has changed in the landscape this week when it comes to dynasty, so remember it’s never a bad idea to acquire young assets and draft picks. 

It’s Time to Move On

If you are on the outside looking in at this point, you’re more likely in need of a retool as opposed to a deep playoff run. If this is you, it’s okay, but it’s time to move on from those aging roster staples. We have seen it over and over Father time is undefeated when it comes to fantasy production. With this in mind, it’s always better to be a bit early as opposed to too late when it comes to fantasy trades. 

When trying to decide if the time is right to move on you have to consider that each position tends to have a different drop-off mark and rate. For example, wide receivers tend to have a longer production window as they have quality production up until the 30-year-old mark and have some value after that as well. On the flip side, running backs tend to have the shortest window of production as we see their window start to close around age 26-27 and normally see a rapid decline. With this in mind, I have compiled a list of a few names to consider moving on from before it’s too late.

Three quality running back assets are crossing the 27-year-old age cliff this offseason Aaron Jones, Dalvin Cook and Alvin Kamara. All of these players have had a roller-coaster season thus far but have come on as of late. This has opened a small sell window if you are looking to retool your roster as you head into 2023. Additionally, Derrick Henry is currently pushing the limits in his age-28 season, which is giving you more time to make a deal. At some point, the wheels will fall off and if I am rebuilding, I would rather not be caught with him on my roster when that happens. 

Additionally, we are seeing a few top-flight assets in Davante Adams and Mike Evans closing in on the dreaded age-30 cliff. Both players have already shown signs of slowing down this season, and with this, I am ready to move on while both have some quality value left. Also, you have a great window to move Tyler Lockett and DeAndre Hopkins, who are defying the age odds and producing at an elite level thus far – creating the perfect window to move him from a rebuilding roster. Mostly because it’s only a matter of time until this production slows down. 


Contending Rosters

As a contender, we know by now that the name of the game is – What can you do for me now? This is the mindset you should have as we head into Week 11, especially, if your roster can handle a deep run. The waiver wire can be your best friend, but with the state of most dynasty leagues, the waiver wire is likely barren. With this in mind, remember that a rebuilding roster could be a great way to acquire winnow assets. 

Additionally, feel free to look back through past articles as a few names like Tyler Lockett, Donovan Peoples-Jones, Cordarrelle Patterson, Joshua Palmer and Michael Carter are all still great buys heading into the fantasy playoffs. Adding these back-end depth players can help you secure the depth to make that deep playoff run we all are hoping for,

Go Get Rondale Moore 

After missing the first three games and starting the year slow, Rondale Moore has exploded as of late. Moore is seeing an increase in targets since DeAndre Hopkins returned to the lineup in Week 7, as he has seen 33 targets while seeing back-to-back weeks of double-digit targets. Last week, he saw a season-high 13 targets which he turned into 94 yards on 9 receptions en route to a WR15 finish with 18.4 PPR points – since Week 7, he is the WR15 averaging 14.1 PPR points per game. Unfortunately, Zach Ertz suffered a season-ending knee injury this week, this will result in more opportunities for all the pass catchers in Arizona. With this, we should see Moore continue this quality production down the stretch concluding with two matchups against the Buccaneers and Falcons – two of the worst passing defenses in the NFL. As a result, he will be a great addition to the back end of your roster to help secure a deep run, especially, when you consider he is likely still undervalued by most.
