The dynasty regular season is already almost half over, and in most leagues, the trade deadline is looming as early as Week 11. A feature on MyFantasyLeague.com 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, it would need to be collected manually each week. Here are some of the critical 'most traded players' of late to determine if a buyer or a seller:
Why: Despite flashes over his now three-year NFL career, Sanders has yet to put together a strong workload or a top-12 season in PPG. This season is more of the same, currently RB36 in PPG and averaging a tepid 12 touches per game. Sanders' market share of the Eagles' backfield is trending upward over the past two weeks, but Kenneth Gainwell is still proving to be a thorn in Sanders' receiving upside and Jalen Hurts is doing the same on the ground.
Sanders' career arc and profile study in my RB Index points to a limited ceiling in 2022 and beyond. Few peers emerged into a top-12 option for even a single season. However, Sanders' profile odds are decent for at least one more top-24 season - in short, more of the same. On the flip side, Sanders has looked the part as a dynamic playmaker with his opportunities. Clearly, the Eagles have reservations about a larger workload considering the level of involvement from Boston Scott and now Kenneth Gainwell as two recent examples.
If a contending team, recent trades of Sanders which are applicable include being dealt for Leonard Fournette. A straight-up swap for Michael Thomas also offers later-season upside but also a win for future seasons if Sanders' lack of upside proves accurate. Finally, an example of a future-minded sell of Sanders would be for a future Round 1 pick (ideally in Superflex), or Sanders-2nd for Brandon Aiyuk-1st.
