3 players to trade in your dynasty league before free agency gets started

The NFL free-agent signing period will officially open on March 13. Dynasty league managers should look into getting maximum value for these players before that date.

Even though it is the offseason, you are frequently looking at ways to improve your dynasty roster, correct? If not, get on that.

One of the first landmark events of the NFL offseason is just about two weeks away as the new league year begins on March 13 meaning that the free-agent signing period will begin. By now, dynasty managers should all be familiar with the players who are set to hit the open market.

But before the suspense surrounding where some of these players will sign ends, managers can take advantage of that question by trying to flip some of their players for a substantial return.

These three players could fetch that kind of return with their futures up in the air and if you can get the right deal back, these are some players to sell before the free-agent signing period opens.

Tony Pollard, RB, Dallas Cowboys

Tony Pollard is set to hit free agency and there is no indication as to what the Dallas Cowboys intend to do in regards to bring him back or not. The Cowboys could be in on a different free agent.

Pollard, at least for me, is not a featured back in the NFL. He is going to be at his best when he is paired with another solid runner, as he was in Dallas with Ezekiel Elliott. So if another team signs him to be their primary runner, I would expect his value to slowly go in the wrong direction.

Pollard was a first-round pick in redraft leagues last year and though he wasn't terrible (he rushed for over 1,000 yards), his yards per carry went down by over one yard on average and he just didn't seem to be the same runner as he was in 2022.

Pollard will be entering year six in the league in 2024 and though he can still be a solid runner, his best has probably already been seen. This is not to say he is not worth much, because that isn't true. He still carries value, which is why you want to try and get that value out of him while you can.

Before Pollard's future team is decided, sell him to a manager that is really high on him.
