Welcome to Trader Joe's
The One-Stop Shop for Trading
Hosted by Jeff Pasquino
This thread will be used during the year by myself to discuss both trade strategy and also individual questions. Each week I'll be taking some of the best questions and incorporating them into a column for the site. I'll also add some trade strategy talk in each weekly column.
As for the format, the questions can be on any topic within your league, but I would advise you that the more general the question, the more applicable it becomes to everyone and thus it is more beneficial to all. The "Who should I trade" questions are still welcome (as long as they follow the format outlined below), but if you'd like to see your question in my column, strategy and/or trade philosophy is highly recommended.
Team / league specific question:
"I can keep three players. I have Tiki Barber, LaDainian Tomlinson, Larry Johnson and Terrell Owens. Who do you recommend?"
The better way to generalize the question, yet still get your answer:
"I have three Top 10 running backs (Barber, Tomlinson, Larry Johnson) and a Top 10 WR (Terrell Owens), but I can only keep three. Is it better to keep three running backs, or should I keep a top shelf WR and two backs?"
I would request that you include the following regarding your trade questions:
- Type of league (Dynasty, Keeper, Contract, Auction, Redraft, other)
- Starting Roster (positions you play each week)
- Scoring format
- Number of teams in your league
- Roster size
- Regarding keepers - if you ask a "who should I keep" question, please note the "penalty", if any, for keeping a player (i.e. a draft pick)
- Regarding a trade - post the other team(s) roster(s) of the teams with which you are negotiating
- Any other pertinent info that would help me to help you
- Please please PLEASE cut and paste your sig rosters in your post. I answer many questions at once and can't see the sigs.... TIA.
However, please, no links to other threads.
I'll also point out some other threads along the way that may aid you in becoming a better trader. That is one of the toughest parts of fantasy football, and as always, Footballguys are here to help.
Let's go - Trader Joe's is open for business.
