When it comes to dynasty fantasy football, the offseason is a time to reflect on your roster. Is a player that struggled this season worth keeping? Is there an under the radar player and someone that underwhelmed that you should buy? Maybe a player is at their max value and it’s time to sell.
Some Wide Receivers are in question of status of being an “Keep Buy or Sell” for rosters. Today we’ll highlight there of those players and help you with some insight on how to handle this offseason with these players.
Keep – Michael Gallup
Michael Gallup unfortunately suffered a torn ACL, effectively ending his season. That type of injury comes at a terrible time with him playing on a contract year with the Cowboys. This makes him a curious case in dynasty formats.
With the talent he has and displayed over these pass three seasons, the Cowboys will certainly look to bring him back. Gallup has been that third option that has given the offense a spark when they’ve needed it. The Cowboys have Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb has taken over as the top wide receiver in that room.
However, Gallup is a strong hold based on him returning possibly to an offense that he’s had success in throughout his career. If Gallup leaves, it would indicate that he has a strong market. With the right team, he could also be a premier option and someone worth holding onto.
Still, Gallup is a player that is coming off of a big injury, and therefore that big payday might not be there. He may miss out on a huge opportunity to cash in. Another year with the Cowboys could help his value.
Gallup is only 25 years old which also makes him an intriguing hold. If Gallup returns and Calls decides to move on from Amari Cooper, holding Gallup would end up being worth it. With Zeke not playing up to par with injuries, the Cowboys may be looking to move some things around.
Keeping Gallup on your dynasty roster shouldn’t be hard considering his current injury situation. Sit tight and enjoy the production Gallup will give you once he’s healthy next season.
Buy – Christian Kirk
Christian Kirk is a special player for the Cardinals whose contract is up at the end of the season. He could make a big case for having a market in free agency. However, the Cardinals could also look to bring him back. Kirk has been hidden on the depth chart in Arizona. However, he’s stepped up when he’s had opportunity. The Cardinals wide receiver had a career-high 982 yards this season and is just 25 years hold.
Like Gallup, this makes him an intriguing option in dynasty formats.
Some will say his success this season only came with DeAndre Hopkins facing a hamstring injury. However, that is not true at all. During the first eight weeks of the season, Kirk was averaging 13 points per game, making him a solid WR2.
Additionally, his target share this season was a healthy 18% that could be continued into next year. You wouldn’t have to give much up for Kirk to be on your roster. Wide Receivers are deep and players are willing to deal out players in Kirk’s tier. The upside here is that he takes the next level with DeAndre Hopkins showing his age this season.
Hopkins will be 30 next year and the decline will be coming soon. Kirk has showed than he and Hopkins can co-exist for fantasy relevance as Kyler Murray spreads the ball around.
Kirk should be valued as high as a second round pick in dynasty. That’s not saying that’s his price set in stone, but it should be in that ball park.
Sell – Amon-Ra St. Brown
Amon-Ra St. Brown is hot commodity right now. Outside of Ja’Marr Chase and Jaylen Waddle, he might be one of the better rookie wide receivers this season. St. Brown finished the final five weeks of the season as a top-three wide receiver in fantasy football.
He’ll be someone that other owners look to add on to their roster.
However, one can say his success is only coming to light because TJ Hockenson and DeAndre Swift were out with injuries. That could be true to an extent. St. Brown has Diontae Johnson vibes when it comes to targets. He went five straight weeks with double digit targets – much like Johnson did this season.
Brown’s talent can’t be ignored. However, what also can’t be ignored is how quiet he was the the first half of the season with both Swift and Hockenson playing. Selling Brown now in dynasty would be the best move to get a huge return for whoever is buying.
Wide receivers are deep. St. Brown is on a very bad team who will always be playing from behind. The passing volume will remain there for him and the rest of the offensive weapons for the lions. With swift and Hockenson returning next season, it’ll be interesting to see how they find balance in this offense with St. Brown showcasing he can handle a heavy workload.
Either way, if you’re in need of key players, especially at the running back position or if you’re looking to get a solid return that could help rebuild, St. Brown could be a great piece to put up for sale.
St. Brown’s value is at an all-time high. The time to sell is St. Brown in dynasty is now though before it’s too late. People will end up realizing his final weeks of the season may not transfer to the next season. Sell now and don’t look back.
