  • Ryan McDowell breaks down fantasy football dynasty trades along with adds and drops to make in your league.
  • Melvin Gordon is in danger of missing the rest of the fantasy season, which makes now the perfect time to make a move to acquire him.
  • Meanwhile, Gus Edwards and Josh Adams have generated plenty of excitement. But there's reason to doubt the rookies' long-term viability.

Each week of the NFL season I will highlight risers and fallers in dynasty leagues — one player to trade for, one to trade away, one to add and one to drop.

Dynasty Risers

Trade for: Melvin Gordon, RB, Los Angeles Chargers

Gordon suffered a knee injury that will likely keep him out for the remainder of the fantasy football season. He’s the RB5 on the season despite missing Week 7, and only Todd Gurley has more RB1 games than the Chargers back.

Needless to say, this has been a highly successful season for Gordon, up to this point.

Buying Gordon in dynasty leagues won’t be an easy task considering he’s only 25 years old and is one of the few every-down backs in the league. His current dynasty ADP of 10th overall is the highest of his career, which is a sign that his value has reached a peak.

But considering his strong play so far this season, there’s a strong possibility that whichever team in your league currently has Gordon is also a title contender. That’s something you can take advantage of.

Offering whoever has Gordon on their roster a currently productive back who can replace Gordon for a potential deep playoff run would be attractive, but don’t get too greedy. This type of deal would likely require a player like Nick Chubb or Aaron Jones, along with a high draft pick. If the situation is right, those are the types of offers that could pry Gordon away and benefit both teams.
