Dynasty Fantasy Football is all about continuously shaping your roster to win championships. Dynasty never sleeps – neither should you when it comes to being active in your Dynasty Fantasy Football League(s). I recently wrote about roster construction strategy, and recommend checking that out.
Buys/Sells content is hot in the Fantasy Football world. This consists of who you should go out and trade for to get on your team, and also players you should look to trade away from your team. The more common content is Fantasy Football buys so I thought I would bring you an article for players I would recommend trading away. Timing is key in Dynasty, and now is the time to sell players I will discuss. If you are looking for 2024 draft capital, now is the time vs. waiting until closer to the draft as well.
With the below Dynasty Fantasy Football sells, I give you players who I feel you should trade away before their values decrease. I will give you the player, the reason I would be looking to sell them, and some possible assets in the form of players or picks I would sell them for. Actionable advice is key and you will get that by reading this article. The “trade for” section of each player will be suggestions in a 12-team Superflex League and are pieces you should try to either straight-up trade your player away for or at least start the conversation.

Dynasty Fantasy Football Sells
Travis Kelce, Chiefs
Legendary career in the NFL, and if there was a “Fantasy Football Hall of Fame” Travis Kelce would be a first-ballot entry without a doubt. You can certainly argue he is the greatest tight end of all time, which has translated well for Fantasy Football. Kelce Has finished as a top-two tight end in Fantasy PPG for eight straight seasons. For Fantasy Football, that feels “nuff said.”
2023 saw some noticeable declines for Kelce, who is currently 34. Yes, he did finish first in Fantasy PPG with 14.6, but this is also the lowest average score for him since 2016. Through 15 games, Kelce finished with 121 targets, which was less than every year between 2017-2022. Kelce’s 984 receiving yards was the lowest since 2015. Kelce’s five receiving touchdowns was also the lowest since 2019. We can acknowledge that Kelce missed two games, but it is very obvious that the decline is beginning. You have to jump on declines before values fold in Fantasy Football. Thank you Travis, for the years of Fantasy Football dominance – but it is time to send him to someone who feels they are a “competitor” in your league.
Trade Away For: 2024 Pick 2.01, 2024 Pick 2.02, mid-2024 2nd + late-2024 3rd, Michael Mayer + 2024 3rd, Javonte Williams, George Pickens, Josh Downs, Deshaun Watson
Romeo Doubs, Packers
In 2023, Romeo Doubs took a statistical jump in all categories from his rookie to sophomore season. He went from 67 to 96 targets, 42 to 59 receptions, 425 to 674 receiving yards, three to eight touchdowns and 7.8 to 10.3 Fantasy PPG. Doubs had a great NFL Playoffs, catching 10 passes for 234 receiving yards and a touchdown in just two games. With all eyes on the playoffs, all eyes were on Doubs’ balling out. This makes Doubs a “sell-high” candidate due to his elevated value.
10.3 Fantasy PPG ranked 46th for the wide receiver position in 2023. Doubs ranked 41st in receptions and 46th in receiving yards during the regular season vs. the position as well. Doubs is only 23 years old, but Green Bay has plenty of youth in 2023 rookie wide receivers Jayden Reed and Dontayvion Wicks along with rookie tight ends Luke Musgrave and Tucker Kraft who all flashed. The Packers have hope that Christian Watson will bring more of his rookie-season explosions into year three as well, and even Bo Melton surprised us at the end of the season. That is a lot of receivers with plenty of potential, and I do not see Doubs at the top of this list. I recently weighed in on the Packers’ receiver room below if you would like more details:
Dynasty Fantasy Football: Which Packers' WR?
Christian Watson lit it up in 2022. Jayden Reed had big games as a rookie. Romeo Doubs had a massive post-season. Dontayvion Wicks stepped up when given a bigger role. Bo Melton came out of nowhere. On top of 2 promising rookie TE's… pic.twitter.com/NQeUYI2Egt

Trade Away For: 2024 Pick 2.02, 2024 Pick 2.03, D’Andre Swift, Chris Godwin, Jake Ferguson, Jameson Williams, Rhamondre Stevenson, Amari Cooper
Tony Pollard, Cowboys
To summarize how disappointing Tony Pollard was in 2023:
Tony Pollard in 2023 had 59 more rushing attempts than 2022 but finished with 2 less rushing yards
16 more passes caught in 2023 than he did in 2022 but finished with 60 less receiving yards
Totaled 75 more touches in 2023 than in 2022 but scored 6 less TD's
— Nick Skrip (@P2WFantasy) January 11, 2024
With Ezekiel Elliott gone, and the production Pollard had in 2022, his value was very high heading into 2023. Regressing in Fantasy Football despite totaling 75 more touches was truly confusing for many managers who rostered Pollard. 13.1 Fantasy PPG ranked 23rd for the running back position which may not have killed you all season, but certainly did not help you win your league.
Tony Pollard will be a free agent in 2024 and I do not see any path with Dallas or any other team that he is likely to land a role as a lead running back. I do feel Pollard can be a complimentary back, and have some Fantasy Football impact, but not to the extent of what his expectations were coming into 2023. I have a feeling many people view Pollard as a young running back due to him having his first year as a starter, but he is 26.7 years old. I would be moving off of a ship that is already sinking.
Trade Away For: 2024 Pick 2.03, 2024 Pick 2.04, Najee Harris, Alvin Kamara, Kirk Cousins, Christian Kirk, Terry Mclaurin
Courtland Sutton, Broncos
During the 2023 season, Courtland Sutton served as a reliable FLEX option in Fantasy Football lineups. Sutton averaged 11.9 PPG which ranked 38th for the position, and finished as the WR35 overall. For a player who ranked 41st in receptions (59) and 37th in receiving yards (772), what helped Sutton to a WR35 finish? Touchdowns. Sutton scored 10 on the year, which ranked fifth for the position. Sutton’s 18 red zone targets ranked 12th, which helped him have this upside in 2023.
I do not want to bank on touchdowns in Fantasy Football, for any position. If you combined all of the touchdowns scored from 2018-2022 for Sutton, that would be just four more than his touchdown total for 2023.
2018-2022 TD's: 14
2023 TD's: 10
Sutton was the 2022 Jamaal Williams for the WR position in 2023
— Nick Skrip (@P2WFantasy) February 1, 2024
At 28 years old, I do not want to continue banking on touchdowns as Sutton gets closer to 30. Sutton has just one season over 1,000 receiving yards, and has one season under his belt over 12 Fantasy PPG. I am out.
Trade Away For: 2024 2.10, 2024 2.11, Michael Wilson, Austin Ekeler, Khalil Shakir, Jerry Jeudy, James Conner, Russell Wilson, Quentin Johnston
Raheem Mostert, Dolphins
At 31 years old, Raheem Mostert had his best career year, finishing with career highs in rushing attempts (209), rushing yards (1,012), total touchdowns (21) and Fantasy PPG (17.9). Mostert ranked fourth in Fantasy PPG, which tells you enough about his impact in 2023 for Fantasy Football. The touchdowns were amazing, and he ranked 1st amongst running backs for the category.
2015-2022 TD's: 19
2023 TD's: 21
— Nick Skrip (@P2WFantasy) February 1, 2024
Mostert is under contract for one more season, which could mean keeping a significant role in the Miami offense. Mostert is an explosive player, in an explosive offense. With the emergence of rookie De’Von Achane though, I would not be surprised if the young guy grows in this offense and eventually takes over as the RB1 or the 1A. This is likely a consensus thought. I noted previously that I do not want to bank on touchdown production, which is a category that is expected to come down to Earth for next season. Mostert is also closer to 32 than he is to 30, and has finished five seasons playing in nine or less games. Mostert’s value during the season was at it’s peak, and his value following next year will be completely different. Send the veteran again to a “competitor” in your league who is looking for a running back.
Trade Away For: 2024 2.10, 2024 2.11, Cade Otton, DeAndre Hopkins, Kenny Pickett, Derek Carr, Wan’Dale Robinson
