Need Trade Advice for Dynasty League

Recommended Posts

Need some trade advice - I'm new to Dynasty and need some help. 12 team PPR league. I have two trade options in front of me - don't know which is better and if either one is  good one. Player offering the trade seems to really want Malcolm Mitchell.

Trade Option 1

Being offered Jamaal Charles, Kirk Cousins, Tim Hightower, Martellus Bennett, 2017 2.08 pick

I give Smallwood, Malcolm Mitchell, Jordan Reed

Trade Option 2;

Being offered Cousins, Hightower

I give Smallwood, Mitchell

I am leaning toward a counter to Trade 2 swapping out Bennett for Hightower thinking Cousins gives me depth at QB and I can probably afford to Mitchell and Smallwood??? Need some advice Please! 

My basic team is

 Tom Brady 
 Kaepernick 
 Cardale Jones 
 McCoy 
 Miller 
 Ingram 
 Chris Thompson 
 W Smallwood 
 Brandin Cooks 
 Larry Fitzgerald 
 Tyler Lockett 
 DeSean Jackson 
 Kenny Britt 
 Malcolm Mitchell 
 Quincy Enunwa 
 Green-Beckham 
 Leonte Carroo 
 Robert Woods 
 Paul Richardson 
 Jordan Reed 
 Stephen Anderson 
 Lance Kendricks 
 Sefarian-Jenkins

Welcome to the forums. I think Smallwood and Mitchell is a reasonable price for cousins, with or without Bennett. Hightower isn't worth much. 

You may get more help if you post in the assistant coach forum, that's the best place to get advice on a trade or get help on roster building. If you have a completed trade and want to know if you made a good deal post in "completed dynasty trades" in the shark pool. Also a good place to see what kind of trades are going on in other leagues.

Just offer Cousins for Mitchell. But yeah as snorkelson so eloquently (and how it should be done) put it, you're in the wrong forum.

Trade 1 option is horrible for you, andv2nd option isn't as bad but not that great IMO

would not do either, don't trade just to trade, don't think either move makes you better

I don't think the value difference between Cousins and Mitchell is that much in a 12 team start 1 QB format.  I would take Cousins over Mitchell.  My issue is specifically with your team your WR group is a little weak.  Fitzgerald probably gives you just one more year. DeSean is 30 years old as well.  Lockett disappointed in year two and had a major injury. Kenny Britt turns 29 this year.  Outside of Brandin Cooks, Mitchell might be your 2nd best young WR asset.  Certainly Brady is also getting old but he is still performing at an elite level so he can get you by for a while.

Option 1 is just a terrible deal for you.  You get older, you lose one of the better younger TE and you really don't get any help in your starting lineup.

Option 2 is better.  I don't know that it seems unreasonable.  My question is how do you see that helping you?  I would still play Brady over Cousins almost always.  Reed is your starter over even Bennett as long as he is healthy. You lose 2 younger guys in Mitchell and Smallwood.  I would pass because I think you take on age with no real benefit to your starting unit.

In dynasty it's OK to think short term and improving your starting lineup but you want to use a fair portion of your bench for young potential future starters.  Mitchell flashed some great potential and don't forget that Smallwood could catapult to the top of the depth chart with Matthews potentially being gone and Sproles playing one more year. Your team has plenty of age. It needs some young bench help.
