Fight Chance Fantasy's Dynasty Question of the Week: Which player are you trying to buy this offseason?

With the Super Bowl upon us, dynasty managers have already started to roll up their sleeves and prepare for the 2023 season. The offseason is when dynasty managers are probably laying a good amount of the groundwork to set up their team for the upcoming dynasty draft and season. What better way to make your team better than by dabbling in some trades with fellow dynasty managers?

Offseason is the best season because that means trades and drafts galore take place. For us here at Fighting Chance Fantasy, it's our favorite part of dynasty leagues! There are a lot of great buy-low opportunities this offseason, which is great news. The bad news is that we already have most of them on our teams. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t see if they’re available in your leagues. This leads us to our question of the week: 

Which player are you buying low on this offseason? 


Russell Wilson, QB Broncos

Russell Wilson gets a fresh start this year, and hopefully, he can return to form. He’s getting a good chance to rebound, with the arrival of head coach Sean Payton, but the asking price probably has gone up some. It’s worth checking in with Wilson's managers to see if you can get him for an early to mid-second in some Superflex leagues. - Conner Shears @ConnerShears


Jordan Love, QB Packers

I’ve been stashing Jordan Love where I can for free. See if the Love manager will move him for a late 2nd or early 3rd. Most people have given up on him before he’s really been given a chance. There’s even a small chance that Love is sitting on waivers in more shallow leagues. -Conner


Sam Howell, QB Commanders

Sam Howell is another name to keep an eye on. He’ll likely get an opportunity to start this upcoming season, and he can likely be had for a third-round pick. The Howell manager in your leagues might not be willing to sell for that price, but it’s worth checking. Howell is another quarterback that could be available for free in your league's waiver wire pool. - Conner


Mike White, QB Free Agent

Mike White proved that he was the best quarterback for the Jets in 2022. His performance made it easy to send Zach Wilson to the curb. In the four games when he was a starter, White averaged 298 yards passing per game. The main reason why you should buy White at his current buy-low price right now is the rumor that is swirling around that the Rams are interested in signing the free agent. With Matthew Stafford suffering multiple concussions which landed him on injured reserve to end his season, one might say that Stafford’s future with the Rams could be in doubt if he gets one more big hit. White might even be free in your waiver wire, but you could get White for a fourth-round rookie pick, should he be on someone’s roster. Must buy in two-quarterback/super-flex leagues. - Leo Grandio @smooth1074


Kyler Murray, QB Cardinals

If you are a team that is rebuilding, you may want to kick the tires to see if the Kyler Murray manager is interested in trading the dual-threat quarterback. With Murray rehabbing from a torn ACL, and reports stating that he will not return until at least mid-season this is the time to trade for Murray. He could be obtained for possibly a second-round rookie pick for a quarterback-needy team. - Leo 

Running Back:

Jonathan Taylor, RB Colts

Jonathan Taylor is a screaming buy from the way people have reacted to his injury-riddled campaign in 2022. I’m happy to buy for any first-round rookie pick that’s not resulting in me missing out on Bijan Robinson. Try packaging a player like Tyler Allgeier and a high second and go from there. - Conner

D'Andre Swift, RB Lions

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but D’Andre Swift is another buy-low opportunity. After failing to live up to preseason expectations for another year, it’s likely the Swift manager in your league has become very frustrated with the situation. Take advantage of it by offering a similar package to the Taylor offer above. - Conner

Rachaad White, RB Buccaneers

I was a big fan of Rachaad White pre-draft last year, but I missed out on him in every rookie draft. Now is the time to buy White. Although the Buccaneers would gain little in terms of cap space from releasing Leonard Fournette, I fully expect White to take over that backfield during the 2023 season regardless of whether Fournette is there. A mid-late second might get it done. - Conner 

Breece Hall, RB Jets

It will still cost you to acquire the services of Mr. Breece Hall, but there is a slight window that is open to at least make an attempt. Prior to suffering a torn ACL injury, Hall was starting to take over the Jets backfield. His carries were steadily on the rise and he scored at least one touchdown in four straight games. Check to see if the injury has created a little doubt with the Hall manager in your league and dangle at least a first-round pick and another lower-round pick to start the negotiations for the stud back. - Leo


Javonte Williams, RB Broncos

Another injured running back that should be considered as a buy-low this offseason has to be Javonte Williams. The forgotten man in the Broncos’ backfield, Williams was injured in the fourth game of the season, and seems like a lifetime ago. With the turnstile the Broncos had after Williams was lost for the season, none of the running backs that had their turn seemed to last too long which sent the next man up. Heading into 2023, there is no Melvin Gordon in the way for Williams to take over this committee and be an RB1 for the next few years. With the injury discount, you may be able to pry Williams from your league mate for a possible late first-round rookie pick. - Leo


Wide Receiver:

Rashod Bateman, WR Ravens

Rashod Bateman has loads of talent, but he’s stuck in the Baltimore receiver abyss. I'm confident that he'll bounce back. After an injury-filled season, a mid-late 2nd might be enough. -Conner

D.J. Moore, WR Panthers

D.J. Moore is a victim of circumstance and I will die on that hill. Even still he’s put up over 1,000 yards in three out of five seasons. He gets a new coaching staff and likely a new quarterback. Hopefully, big things are on the horizon for DJ. I’d offer an early second. - Conner

Diontae Johnson, WR Steelers

Diontae Johnson had a rough season after Ben Roethlisberger retired, but he’s still a talented player who’s due for a bounce-back season after a 2022 season in which he scored zero touchdowns. Early-mid second might be enough to secure Johnson. - Conner


Deebo Samuel, WR 49ers

Deebo Samuel is an elite fantasy asset when he is healthy, but therein lies the issue. If your league’s Samuel manager is fed up with the roller coaster ride then take advantage! I would try a late first. - Conner 

Jameson Williams, WR Lions

If there is one player that you should try to buy this offseason, it has to be Jameson Williams. The rookie wide receiver suffered a torn ACL last January. He rehabbed and sat for most of the 2022 season for the Lions. But when he made his debut he showed why he is a big play waiting to happen. Williams's stats for the year was a mere one reception for 41 yards, but it went for a touchdown. This came in December. In his final season at Alabama, Williams blew up for 79 receptions, 1,572 yards, and 15 touchdowns. He averaged a whopping 19.9 yards per reception, illustrating that he can be a game-breaker for dynasty managers. I would easily offer a first and more for this stud. Also in case you missed Williams had a 66-yard touchdown in the final game of the season that was wiped away due to a penalty. - Leo

Wan’Dale Robinson, WR Giants

Jameson Williams was not the only rookie wide receiver that was riddled with injuries throughout his first year. Wan’Dale Robinson was turning heads in training camp then suffered an ankle injury came back started to make strides and then got injured again. Then to top things off when Robinson was having a breakout performance in Week 11 and had nine receptions for 100 yards on 13 targets, he suffers a torn ACL during that game. You can probably get Robinson for a mid-late second-rounder. - Leo

Tight End:

Kyle Pitts, TE Falcons

This one might be obvious but, Kyle Pitts, the once generational prospect has fallen out of the graces of fantasy managers everywhere after failing to live up to the preseason hype, to no fault of his own. The uber-talented tight end put up 1000 yards in his rookie season, a feat that hasn’t been accomplished since before humans landed on the moon. Pitts was also stuck in a run-heavy offense under Arthur Smith, and that likely won’t change this upcoming season. Still, Smith has to get Pitts more involved in the passing game. I would be happy to package a tight end on my roster and a late first or early second to get him. - Conner

Trey McBride, TE Cardinals

Rookie tight end traps are as old as fantasy football, and the story of Trey McBride is no different than most of those before him. However, I expect a nice sophomore season for McBride as he looks to take over the starting role from Zach Ertz who is 32 and coming off of an ACL injury. I’d offer a 2024 second for him. - Conner

Kyle Pitts, TE Falcons

I totally agree with Conner on this one. Kyle Pitts had so much hype last season that he was even creeping up into the second round of certain re-draft fantasy leagues. What we all failed to realize was who was going to be throwing him the ball, Marcus Mariota. Mariota always has been and always will be a run-first quarterback. What has me excited about trying to obtain Pitts this off-season is the prospect of Desmond Ridder passing Pitts the ball in 2023. Ridder is more of a dual-threat quarterback that not only proved he can run in college by rushing for 2,000 yards and 28 touchdowns in four seasons with the Bearcats but also racked up 10,239 yards passing and 87 touchdowns. Arthur Smith has already said that Ridder will be the quarterback heading into next season. So definitely agree a first and more for this man amongst boys. - Leo
