Startup dynasty draft question

I have a chance to complete a couple trades for rookie picks and not sure if it’s worth it or not.

At the end of a couple trades I would have
Rookie picks 1.01, 1.03, and 1.09

I would give up
Veteran picks 2.09, 4.09, and 6.09.
2nd round rookie pick

Worth it?

I would not make this deal! Giving up way to much for rookie picks.

Do the opposite. Sell your rookie picks for startup capital.

Even with all the talent in this draft? Maybe it’d be worth just trading my 2nd round vet pick for 1.01 rookie?

There is always more than one way to manage a dynasty team. You do you. Seriously, don’t let me tell you otherwise if you feel strongly about it. However, trading startup veteran talent for rookie picks is a highly risky proposal. Hit rate for 1st round picks is approx 50%. The 1.01 comes with no guarantees.

Here is an example of current startup ADP. As of today I would rather almost any of these players over the 2020 1.01. They are all known fantasy producers.

I’d consider trading a 5th round startup for the rookie 1.01. But another competent dynasty manager should not accept this offer.
