There’s been a month of action since the trade deadline, so it’s a good time to take stock in some of the predictions that were put out. Obviously dynasty is always a long-term game, but sometimes the immediate future is what can gives an indication of what the long-term could look like, so let’s dive in to see how we fared.
Not only that, but it’s important to consider these were not all-encompassing targets for every situation. Using your own judgement and understanding of your team and league is almost as important as being told who you should be targeting. However, should you ever have any questions you don’t feel confident in, you can always find me on Twitter @rhett_bauer for a quick response!
BUYTrey Murphy IIISF, New Orleans Pelicans
I feel pretty good about this one so far this season, and even better as we look forward. Murphy is a legit two-way wing who looked like he belonged in the Dunk Contest after a couple seasons of proving he’s among the best shooters in the league. I might be harping on this too much, but my hot take right after the 2021 draft was that Murphy would end the year as a starter for the Pelicans. I didn’t account for Herb Jones, but I still believe Murphy is a starter already. At this point he should be getting 30-plus mpg regardless of the Pelicans’ health, but if they keep screwing around then the window to buy is still open before he cements himself as a top-80 dynasty asset.

SELLTre JonesPG, San Antonio Spurs
This was a layup for me, and I hope it was for you too. Jones was someone I saw going towards the 100 range in dynasty startups, and it never made sense to me. And now that the Spurs are getting into silly season, even contenders are hurt if they held on to him after the deadline because he’s dropped from the 100th ranked 9-cat player to the 151st. He’s playing almost six less minutes and has only appeared in four of the Spurs’ 11 games since the deadline. There’s a reason why this call was available to everyone, here’s hoping you took advantage.
