The New Reality No.153: Dynasty Trading

Navigating the ever-changing landscape of dynasty fantasy football

The dynasty season is already half over, and in most leagues, the trade deadline is looming in a mere 3-4 weeks. A new feature on this year is data on the Most Traded players across their hosted leagues. You can find it within any MFL league under Reports-Player-Top Adds/Drops/Starters. Then navigate the dropdown menu to "Traded" players. This is only for the current fantasy week, so if you want to track historical information, one would need to collect it manually each week. Here are the most traded players for Week 8 and others of note:

Chase Edmonds

Why: Edmonds is one of the big risers this week with Kenyan Drake out for a chunk of the rest of 2020. Edmonds has been one of the higher-end primary backup running backs during his career, but has just one game - a magical fantasy performance against a hapless Giants defense in 2019 - of more than eight carries in his NFL career. Edmonds was a workhorse in college, albeit off the major conference radar, and now has an opportunity to be a weekly starter for a few games.

Action Plan

Edmonds' valuation this week has been all over the map in trading. Contending or non-contending is a major factor in the buy-sell recommendation. If non-contending, Edmonds is more of a sell. Ideally, start by looking for a 1st from a contender. Or a 2nd and a slow-starting rookie to stash for the future like A.J. Dillon as one example. If contending, be firm if asking for a future first. Edmonds has top-10 impact potential a la Mike Davis over this stretch of the season and punting that as a contender for a mid-late second and a throw-in is a big risk. This first start for Edmonds (Week 9 versus Miami) is a critical one to either cement his Round 1 return in the market or sag (with an injury or down game) down to a second alone.
