Though the NFL still has its conference championships to be decided along with Super Bowl LVIII, ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. has already released his first of what will likely be several mock drafts. There are several draft handicappers out there but Kiper was the guy that started the whole thing so his mocks are still the ones that draw the most attention.

For fantasy football managers, the offseason is already here and hass been for nearly a month now. Dynasty league players are already building their offseason game plan and with rookie drafts set to happen this offseason, a look at who could be available for the taking is always fun to look forward to.

Dynasty league managers can take some nuggets from Kiper's first mock and here are my takeaways from his list of selections as it relates to you dynasty roster.

Sell high on Justin Fields

Kiper has the Chicago Bears selecting USC quarterback Caleb Williams with the No. 1 overall pick, a move that seems to be becoming the consensus opinion at this point. That means Justin Fields will likely be dealt.

I think Fields will be the most interesting player in fantasy football this offseason for this reason, but do managers hope he goes to a better situation or jump off of him before he goes to one that may be worse?

I do think that Fields owners could parlay this into a great situation for their team as they could find a team in major need of a QB and offer a trade that is likely way more than Fields' value but have a chance of it being accepted due to what Fields could potentially bring to his new team.

If you have a good QB situation and have a solid option or perhaps even two solid options, sending Fields to the highest bidder makes a lot of sense. You could get quite the haul in return if you make this trade at the right time.
