****OFFICIAL 2020 OFF-SEASON DYNASTY TRADES****

I think pick 2 in this draft is not a give away. I'd ask for different throw in's but don't see an issue with this trade. I think a good chance that 1.2 is a first round startup pick, maybe within a few picks of Julio. If team that gave Julio is rebuilding makes sense to me.

The idea that Cook or Fournette (or Williams or Davis) is already worth about as much as a perennial top-10 WR on an established offense is apparently much more common than I would expect, but I can't see it.  The 1.2 this year could be another Ezekiel Elliott, but it could more likely be another Melvin Gordon.  I don't see Gordon+unproven prospects to be a good return for an elite asset that could fetch multiple high-1st values.

At best, these sorts of trades badly underestimate the risk of failure built into one year wonders like Meredith, unproven youth like Perkins, and unknown draft pick results.  The pick could return an rb1, Meredith could become an every-week wr2, and Perkins could become an every-down starter and servicable rb2.  If all that happens, then it looks like a solid return for Julio, but the new Julio owner has managed to trade all his risk away for very little downgrade in value should every risk pan out.

Like giving him away.  And it's not even draft pick silly-season yet.

Smh.

Check the last couple pages, it's been that season for a couple weeks now.

I said a couple of weeks ago Zeke was going to do for 1.01 and 1.02 what 2014 did to WR values.  Last year he was fetching trades like Julio straight up and Gurley + Hilton.  Now that he's turned out to be worth it that's rolilng into the 1.01/1.02 prices.  What buyers aren't factoring in is the impact of going to a decent team with a dominant OL.  1.01/1.02 won't get that, especially at OL.

I see I'm alone on this and that's ok but this is not some Zeke backlash.

I offered Julio last year for the 1.1, once I knew it was Zeke, and was also asking for Devante Parker if I recall. Got rejected and owner who rejected it is one of best dynasty owners and best fantasy owner I know, just said he wanted to get younger, which was also my goal.

Previous season I took Gurley at 1.11 and Cooper at 2.2 of startups. I don't regret either pick. Have not done dynasty rankings yet but Julio would be back of first round guy for me.

Well I had wisdom teeth pulled a few hours ago and may not know what I'm getting at either, not totally in piece mentally at the moment.

I thought you were posting that due to Elliot doing so well a a rookie it has increased the value of 1.1 in hopes of landing the next Elliot, I might have read that wrong, I was saying that Elliot doing well was not a reason I think Julio for 1.2 and pieces was an ok deal.

PPR Zealots

Gave: Tyreek Hill, Tyler Eifert, 1.09

Got: Antonio Brown

 

Probably comes down to how much you believe in Hill. Which I don't.

 

6 hours ago, Tybeeman said:

Zealots does reward return yardage. It's not a TE premium league, but Eifert sure is one of the top options. Hill had a great year and finished WR 6 in Zealots PPR scoring, Brown #1. I think Hill surprised everyone with his play this year. I believe he's got upside, but I'd take Brown here pretty easily.

I am a lot more confident in Tyreek if I am also getting return yards.  I could easily give up Brown for that depending on my team.

Yes, that's exactly what I was saying, although it's more about the 1.01 being such a smashing hit.  And you're falling into the exact trap I am explaining.  It's far, far too early to believe that either pick will be worth anywhere near that.  Elliott was drafted into the absolutely perfect situation last year.  We haven't had the draft, we haven't even had the combine yet.  We aren't even sure who should be the 1.01/1.02 picks, let alone where they would fall on a startup ADP.  There isn't a perfect scenario for these guys like Dallas was for Zeke.

Sorry but I'm not falling into a trap. We are not sure of a lot of things, one of those things is how much longer a 28.5 year old WR with a large assortment of nicks will hold his value.  I'd counter that people that hang onto players to long  and don't know when a chance to cash in is starting them in face are the one's falling into the trap.

Agree with you on principle. Do think you can get more for Julio at this point though. Hes a sell high imo. Dont think he has more than another year to extract max value. He'll be 29 by the end of the season next year. Next offseason all you will hear is how hes 30 years old.

After watching the lions pretty much every game there were times ebron made some tough catches, but disappears at times, and with a lack of red zone options this year it really would have been nice to hit 8 tds. Everyone there dropped passes, even normally sure handed boldin. I think this is due to Stafford throwing so hard as much as it is Ebrons lack of hands/concentration. The drops are often magnified because they came on 3rd down a lot this year. I don't think you'll see them bring in anyone to steal targets, although they do need to find a capable backup, and if that guy catches everything it could eat into his work. Boldin also has expressed that "he has passion left." Barring injury, I think there's a pretty safe floor and room to grow. With graham/walker/gronk?/Olsen getting older now may be the perfect time to grab a te who has cleared that 3yr development window. Also ebron could be a fa in a year if the lions don't pick up his option. Even if they do its not a bad spot with a good qb and coaches in place(no new scheme to learn).

I'm probably biased due to my fandom, those crucial drops and the fact he's a useless blocker.

You don't even know who you're targeting at 1.02.  And you're giving up a top 10 dynasty asset for it?  Admiral Ackbar is stunned.

What if Fournette ends up with a degenerative knee after the medical?  Cook goes to Cleveland at 12 and Davis goes to Chicago?  Mike WIlliams can't show separation at the combine and the Treadwell comparisons come rolling out?

Look if every thing goes perfectly during the pre-draft and Cook ends up in Indy and Fournette is in Oakland then sure, I might be able to get behind a huge speculation ala Elliott last year.  But right now it's way, way too early for that.  Oh how I wish I had one of those early picks this year.

What if Julio tears an ACL? What if Matt Ryan is revealed to be a Russian spy? What if Rex Ryan is hired to be the Falcons' offensive coordinator?

Cook in Cleveland would be just fine, BTW.

Those risks are also present with the rookies so don't change the big picture.  The point you missed or ignored is that the incoming rookies have a whole set of other risks they have not yet cleared.

I'm just trying to point out that there are risks to keeping Julio and it seemed like you were missing or ignoring those. 

As a Julio owner, the missed time this year (and the little from last year too) makes me nervous. When a receiver starts to have foot/leg issues it's a cause for concern.

The risk of tearing an ACL post trade applies to every single player, rendering it an irrelevant risk.

I'd think Martin or the pick alone would hold more value than a 31 year old Blount - I know he's coming off a huge year and all....

Fair enough. I was just trying to say that Julio's situation isn't static either. He does have some health concerns and he will be operating in a new system next year when Shanahan leaves.

It's okay to think that he's a top player AND that the arrow is pointed ever so slightly down.

Cook and Fournette also have those risks.  Either could blow out a knee, go to a team with Rexy boy at OC, or have their all-world QB get an all expenses paid trip to Guantanamo.  Ergo, there is no additional risk to either side of the trade.  Julio's foot is a know issue and his value already reflects it, but we already know a ton more about Julio that we do about the rooks.  He's also been through coaching changes before and come out fine.

LIke I said, if it all checks out in mid-May I wouldn't be nearly as against it.  We'll know a ton more about the incoming players at that time and Julio is starting to become someone that a rebuilding team might unload.  But to pay that price today is nuts.  It would be like buying a luxury house before the inspection is even done.  Sure, it will be worth it if all checks out, and it's pretty likely that it all will, but why would one risk that?

He does have some risks sure, but he's been a consistent top 10 producer - long before Shanny, Jr. was there. I think the age thing is semi-valid, but it seems we move the "sell by" age back every year, Now he's almost 30 at 28 - better move him now.

1) Agree with those above that 2.1 alone was an overpay for Blount. 

2) I'd rather have the first by a decent amount. 

3) I'd gamble that Hill is more than a gadget player at that cost.

I wonder how long the owner has been playing dynasty though?  The first trade combined with the fact that he's dealing all of his '18 picks would have me worried that if he was new to dynasty, that he wasn't gonna have the patience needed to stick it out.

The first 2 deals are horrible.  If you are dealing to try to be more competitive you shouldn't be adding an old RB that splits carries with 2  other RB.  I would prefer Martin over Blount.  I would prefer 2.1 over Blount.  Giving up both is criminal.  Dak had a nice first year but Bortles had just as much value a year ago.  I'm not sure if I feel more strongly that Bortles is capable of rebounding or that Prescott is capable of regressing but both are possible.  To add Marshall who is older but was also a WR1 two years ago and a 2018 first (that by the way, looks like could be very early the way this guy trades) is also criminal.  

I don't feel nearly as bad about trade 3.  I'm not sure I would do it but if you believe in Tyreek it's not so bad.  Again, based on the trades this guy is making that 2018 pick might be very early but without knowing giving up that pick and a couple good players for a young Tyreek and Rodgers who was pretty effective may not be as horribly bad.  I'm just not sure Tyreek is a WR I feel is giving me 8-10 years of WR1 play.

Yeah I couldn't even get that kind of haul (or even half of it) DURING the season from playoff teams that were starting Fozzy Whitaker at RB when Jonathan Stewart was completely healthy.  And Blount's value has only gone (way) down since then.

Actually, this is the one place where the guy getting picks+players for 1 stud does diminish risk.  Julio tears an ACL, that side of the trade goes to 0.  It would take 3 different ACLs to erase all value from the other side.

Of course, in my book, this is entirely offset and then some by the fact that the stud provides full value in only one lineup/roster spot, while the picks+players' values are spread over 2-3 lineup slots.  Studs win championships.

I noticed you were considering David Johnson to be a 26 year old RB for next season. He just turned 25 in December. So while technically he will turn 26 years old at the end of next season, he will be 25 years old for most of it.

There is always an issue of where you cut off the dates on ages. I tend to go with what the players age will be at the start of the season while some have the cut off at Dec 31st. There is an issue with the ages at the start of the season for the players who were born a little bit after the season begins and the players born in the spring being considered a year older when there may only be a few months that separate them. That problem will exist wherever you put that cut off at.

I choose to use the age they are at the start of the season since that is the age they will be for that particular season for the most part.

Actually I disagree a bit. People know ACL is recoverable. Even at 27/soon28 he'll be back. He doesn't have multiple knee injuries to compound risk. An ACL tear only temporarily dips his value. An ACL tear to a prospect makes that player less desirable than next year's prospects. No longer has the new car smell, and new players have come in with more hype. Consider Doctson's value right now, or White's. If it's a foot injury to his reconstruction, then it could have a major impact on his value. But you could say the same thing about Williams's back or Fournette's ankle.

Depends whether im buying or selling. If im trying to buy....end of season age. Selling...beginning of season age.

Yes but because of the parts. Somehow this got reduced to Julio for 1.2, it's more than just the 1.2.

I did not ave a problem with the trade or view as one sided like most but to answer your question I'd have needed better parts to go along with that 1.2. That trade I had no problem with was 1.2 and Perkins and Meredith. Some people really like Perkins as we saw by the trade that got someone two #'1s but I was in a few leagues last season where he went in round one of rookie drafts and then you have Meredith who some like so if you like those parts I see the trade as fine.  Personally I'm not big on those parts.   I'd need something like a player or pick I value in at least mid to late  third round type range or two players I value in 5th-6th round type startup range. For some people Perkins and Meredith might qualify, for me they don't but framework of the deal I found as fine with the right parts to go along with the 1.2

Rookies have all the same injury & opportunity risks as vets PLUS the risk that they just aren't NFL caliber players. 

To be more blunt:  Vegas odds tell us that one of Fournette or Cook will not cut it in the NFL/fantasy world.

Lest we forget... the the first two RBs taken were: 

2008:  McFadden; Mendenhall

2009:  Shonne Greene); Knowshon Moreno (followed by Beanie Wells and then Donald Brown!!!...  Shady was the 5th RB by ADP... WOW!)

2010:   Ryan Matthews, CJ Spiller (followed by Jahvid Best and Montario Hardesty)

2011:  Mark Ingram, Ryan Williams (followed by Daniel Thomas and Mikel Leshoure)

2012:  Trent Richardson, Doug Martin (Followed by David Wilson)

2013:  Giovani Bernard, Eddie Lacy (followed by Montee Ball... then finally comes Leveon Bell)

2014:  Bishop Sankey, Carlos Hyde

With a very few exceptions, that's a who's who of fantasy busts.  Sure, every player has questions, but give me a top ten proven vet any day of the week over these rolls of the dice.

 

Editors note:  Before someone complains that I am cherry picking by not counting 2015 and 2016, I believe that an RB's value really cannot be determined until the third year.  Prior to that, they are way to volatile and rankings are based more on perceived potential than actual performance.  Gurley was #1 overall preseason... now he is in the teens at best (overall) and by the end of next year, could drop out of the top 40 overall.  Another example, Montee Ball was a top ten overall ranked player going into his sophomore season and we all know how that turned out.  If anything, I should have left off 2014 as well since Hyde has only a handful of fantasy relevant games in his first three full seasons and yet still commands a top ten RB ranking for some reason.

I feel like you cherry picked for all kinds of reasons. I was in several drafts where Bell went 1 or 2, don't much about about pre-2010 because I was not playing dynasty but I know that season I had Ray Rice as my #2 redraft RB.

I think what a lot of people fail to factor into the equation with those "bust" RB's is they  did in fact surge in value at a point in their career, many after year one so if you got them and moved them you came out way ahead. That's the nature or RB's, it's hard to hold value but many of them you list as busts did in fact have immense value after they actually played in the NFL. Even a guy like Ball was going in round one of startups after his rookie season, like a lot of the other RB's on this list. Heck I moved Melvin Gordon and Hurns for AJ Green last off-season and that's not even a huge win for me, if a win at all, but illustrates the value that Gordon had even after a terrible rookie season.

But most of all you cherry picked because I had no idea I had to pick a RB at 1.1 or 1.2.

In a 10 team that's easily ODB for me.  You need studs in leagues of that size, and he's the stud of this group.

I made the deal for OBJ.  I have crazy depth and youth so it makes even more sense for me given my roster.

I feel like you cherry picked for all kinds of reasons. I was in several drafts where Bell went 1 or 2, don't much about about pre-2010 because I was not playing dynasty but I know that season I had Ray Rice as my #2 redraft RB.

I think what a lot of people fail to factor into the equation with those "bust" RB's is they  did in fact surge in value at a point in their career, many after year one so if you got them and moved them you came out way ahead. That's the nature or RB's, it's hard to hold value but many of them you list as busts did in fact have immense value after they actually played in the NFL.

Um... I was responding to a post about picking Cook as the second RB, so how is that cherry picking.

For each of the RBs on my list I used ADP, as mentioned.

You think other positions are different than RB?  Players like Westbrook 1.1 ADP or Tavon Austin 1.2 ADP are just a couple of early WR washouts off the top of my head.

Finally, yes, rookie value can sometimes surge up briefly in the first two years... but the guy who traded you Green must have been Allen Hurns big brother.

12-Team PPR, Start 1 QB

Team A gives CJ Anderson, Jay Cutler, and Pick 2.11 

Team B gives Marcus Mariotta

As the result of another trade, the above trade essentially morphed into this:

12-Team PPR, Start 1 QB

Team A gives LeSean McCoy, CJ Anderson, Jay Cutler, Robert Griffin III, and Pick 2.11 

Team B gives Marcus Mariotta, Spencer Ware, Devin Funchess, and Pick 2.11

Team A is rebuilding, Team B is reloading.  For Team B it's all about acquiring McCoy and, to a lesser extent, Anderson.  The QBs are trash that'll like be cut.

And that's why I rarely comment on trades, because people don't post actual completed trades but are instead asking for advice.

"As the result of another trade, the above trade essentially morphed into this"

you admitted to not posting a completed trade, most likely to get feedback before offering/accepting and making adjustments (or morphing) into something else

use AC forum, or better yet is Twitter and hashtag it #dynastytrades and make it a poll, you'll get more "answers" and some feed back if you seek it out
