Top 20 NFL veterans traded in the prime of their careers
Who are the greatest traded players of all time? That was the question posed to me by my editor after the trades that sent Antonio Brown to the Raiders and Odell Beckham Jr. to the Browns. It's rare to have star players shopped in their primes, even with the economics of the sport playing an ever increasing role.

If you only count how prolific a player is before he was traded, then what about all those who were incredible after they were dealt?

My projections are based on historical trends, personnel, matchups and probable game scripts. Yes, it could be considered overkill to use 10 full years of past, actual, and comparable data to forecast each week, but why wouldn't you want to at least try to be as accurate as possible? I know I can't find a reason not to.
