Any update to these Dynasty rankings has traditionally included updates on who has moved over the past month and why. If you haven't noticed, not a lot has happened in the NFL world over the past month that has had Fantasy Football impact. That's not uncommon for May and June, but it was exacerbated by the lack of minicamps and OTAs. So you'll see similar rankings below as what you saw in May. And instead of looking back, we'll look ahead at three quarterbacks whose value could rise the most over the next two to three months.
Kenyan Drake has been a player who has risen in virtually every Dynasty rankings update in 2020. I'm just not sure he's done rising. He was the No. 4 running back in PPR in the second half of 2019. If he starts 2019 in a similar fashion, he could easily be viewed as a top 10 Dynasty running back by mid-September. He's 26, but Drake's lack of wear and tear could portend more success into his late 20s. If Drake does get off to a hot start and sees his value rise further, that is exactly the moment I would look to trade him.
David Montgomery has bounced around the rankings a lot in his first year in the NFL but it's definitely easier for me to see him going up than down this season. Yes, he was terrible inefficient in 2020, but he should have close to 300 touches coming in 2020 and the offense can't be any worse. I expect him outperform most of the rookie backs and most ADP sources don't seem to reflect that. If Montgomery gives us a top-15 finish in 2020 and then the Bears let Tarik Cohen walk Montgomery's perceived value could explode.
While Montgomery is the Bears running back I'd prefer to roster, Cohen may be the one with the most to gain early in 2020. A year after posting a top-12 season we saw his efficiency absolutely crater. At the very least you should expect a top-25 back in PPR but if his efficiency bounces all the way back there's no reason he can deliver top 15 results. If he does that you'll be wishing you bought low over the summer.
Of course, a lot of backs will see their value go the other way this season. Unless you're a contender, I'd be looking to sell most every back older than 26 years old. But what's really interesting is that it's the rookie backs who could take a bit of a value hit at the beginning of the year. Most of them landed in spots where they have to compete for carries, and the abbreviated offseason makes it less likely they'll win those battles by Week 1. A month into the season, I'd guess a majority of Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Jonathan Taylor, D'Andre Swift, J.K. Dobbins and Cam Akers will be under performing expectations. And I'll be checking in with the managers who drafted them to see if the price has dropped at all.
