Dynasty players often view the regular season as a time for their hard work in the offseason to finally pay off. The 16 weeks of meaningful football from September to December are simply the proving grounds for their trades of aging veterans, draft pick swaps and sneaky additions of training camp standouts.
There are still plenty of edges to exploit in the regular season, though, so here are the biggest dynasty risers and fallers and whether you should buy or sell the changing values.
Riser: RB Antonio Gibson, Washington Football Team
Gibson rocked the Thanksgiving DFS slate with three touchdowns, and the reverberations of his performance can be felt in dynasty rankings everywhere. It would be easy to overreact to his massive day and anoint him a top-five dynasty running back, but the underlying statistics may point to that being closer to the correct response than many would initially think. His touchdown production is obviously fluky. His 4.3 rushing touchdowns over expectation lead all running backs by a considerable margin. And he currently ranks third in the NFL with 11 rushing touchdowns while playing on the 24th-best team by total points scored.
