LT trade value (1 Viewer)

I figured i am not the only LT owner (now former owner) who was trying to gauge his trade value after yesterday's game.

Here is at least one trade that you may be able to use to gauge his value.

I just completed a trade where i gave up LT, SHockey and Hasselback for Romo and Cooley.

I had started Palmer the first two weeks and needless to say i am 0-2. I love this as I obviously upgraded at QB and though i think Shockey will have a good year, i still feel happy about landing Cooley.

Take this info as you want, but i have a feeling i am not the only owner that was contimplating moving him and this shows that he still has value, dont sell him too cheap!

FWI- this is a one player keeper league, 4pt passing td, .25 ppr.

:goodposting: Didn't you?IMO Cooley and Romo isn't that much greater than Hass and Shockey, so looks like you almost gave away LT for nothing....

Maybe, but put me in the camp that doesnt think he wil be getting over this injury anytime soon,I also have deep running back depth, Forte and LBJ, so i feel i upgraded at two positions while getting rid of a weekly headache with Tomlinson. If he coes back in two weeks and is the LT of old, of course i will miss him, but i dont think i could have risked an 0-4 or worse start to wait for him and for Seattle's WR to get healthy.

Trade value? What trade value.

After toe injury and two weeks of bad perf, I am not happy and getting no one to accept my trade offers.

 
traded LT for 3 first round picks....so far I have Stewart and Chris Johnson to show...plus a number 1 next year....yeah, I like it.

:shrug: Sure, Romo is great, but you just gave LT away for pennies on the dollar. In order for that offer to be remotely balanced there should have been a Thomas Jones or Ernest Graham type thrown in on his end.IMO, you likely could have done much better than what you got, but to each his own.
 
I wont get into if it was the right move or not, because what is done is done.

I think it was the right move for MY team.

i had the depth to do it, my team improved, and i was 0-2. You sit, you die.

Not trying to be confrontational, but can someone show me some trades made AFTER yesterday's game that shows that i got bad CURRENT value for him? Obviously my opinion differs from most of you, but i am suspicious that some of you are valuing his name, not his future production with the toe. Having said that, if that many of you feel that way then maybe that is a better judge of what you can get in the trade market. I would like to hear from others that traded Tomlinson, what did you give up and who did you get?

I still feel that it was a good trade for MY team. With the responses here it sounds like i may have got more out of it, but like i said, my team is ow stronger, and i feel i have a better chance of making the playoffs. If you just hold out to get full value, the season may pass you by (at least with my 0-2 start).

Your only other RBs are Forte (a second RB if you start 2 at best) and LBJ ( I'm not up on these acronyms you crazy kids use today, so I assume you are referring to Larry Johnson- the RB with 96 total rushing yards after two games) and you think this trade helps your roster? :jawdrop: I think I see the real reason your team is 0-2.

 
In a 12 team 2 keeper league i am evaluating an offer of Brady and Edge for LT. What WR would you guys accept for him right now?
Brady and Edge??I don't do it. Edge is already getting his goal line carries taken away by Hightower, who could surplant him next year anyway. And who knows how long (or if) it takes Brady to get back to what he did in 07, or what the situation in NE will be next year.I would look at younger RB options (Chris Johnson/Lynch, maybe Brandon Marshall) options before taking a Rb on his last legs or any QB for a keeper league except maybe Romo. (and he's only a surefire bet to be a top3 QB as long as TO keeps his legs under him)

I think this is the hip new name for CJ3 (Chris Johnson = Light Blue Jesus).Still not a good idea..

Thanks for the help on the nickname. I forgot Adrian Peterson of the Vikes is AP,ADP or Purple Jesus and Chris Johnson of the Titans is CJ3, Homerun or Light Blue Jesus. We should all be glad Chad is Ocho Cinco now!
 
Looking at CBS Sportsline, the most recent trade involving LT was (I'm not kidding):

LT for Warrick Dunn

:unsure:

Another head scratcher is LT for Nate Burleson. :shrug:

Some of the more reasonable deals on the list are:

LT for Barber

LT for Westbrook

(I would do either of those in a heartbeat, if offered -- especially in keeper/dynasty)

LT/Chad Johnson for Calvin Johnson/Marshawn Lynch

LT for Turner/McNabb

It looks like there are people out there who still see LT as having value.

 
Not to be that guy, but *cough cough* http://forums.footballguys.com/forum/index...=402879&hl= *cough cough*... check it out *cough cough*

Anywho, in regards to that posted link, I did end up trading LT before the draft for the #3 pick overall. Best I could get for him. With that #3 pick I ended up taking Calvin Johnon. As for my keepers I kept Braylon, Andre Johnson, and Turner (who would have been dropped if I kept LT.)

So basically I got Calvin Johnson and Michael Turner for LT.

 
I have LT in a dynasty league & I'm going to hold (at least for now). There's a fine line between trading a perennial stud too early/too late. I always make a habit of checking out my older players early in the season to see if there's any sign of decline. LT looked like himself week 1 (quick, strong, & fast). He didn't have a great game, but the right dynamics weren't present. Happens all the time to stud RBs.

If the toe injury doesn't linger, LT will be his usual dominant self this season, IMO. That said, this coming offseason might be the time to move him depending on the makeup of your team. I'm going to wait to see who I acquire in the offseason via trades (if any) as well as who I get in our Rookie Draft. I'll then make a determination as to whether I can move him & still remain a strong playoff contender.

I don't think there's any cut & dried way to look at it. It's best to decide how long you believe LT will remain a stud RB coupled with the dynamics of your roster. It may even be the right time to move him even tho you think he has something left. It's really hard to determine on a generic basis.

 
On Friday I traded LT and Roddy White for Brandon Marshall and Lynch. I get a feeling if I would have let him 'wait until next week' like he wanted, I'd be laughed at right now.

Thanks for the insulting remark.Anyways, as was said before, it is Chris Johnson, not larry Johnson. I also have Julius Jones, Fargas, Hightower, and Kevin Jones on my bench (lots of reserve room in this league).

The reason i am 0-2 is because my second round pick was Colston.

For those of you that say Hasselback and Romo is pretty much a wash, give me a break. You MIGHT have been able to make that arguement in July, not now with all of the WR injuries, including the most recent ones.

So, despite not having any other measuring stick for trading him, i made a horrible trade. Lets recap:

My trade (evidentally worst trade ever)

and then:

Some of the more reasonable deals on the list are:

LT for Barber (may be possible becasue he too is banged up)

LT for Westbrook (Any Westbrook owners want to chime in on this one? Guarantee you woultnt do this now)

(I would do either of those in a heartbeat, if offered -- especially in keeper/dynasty)

LT/Chad Johnson for Calvin Johnson/Marshawn Lynch (Very hopeful, owner would have to be a rook that is in love with big names)

LT for Turner/McNabb (Possible, but in my opinion and with my team needs, Id rather have Romo)

For those that say worst trade ever, show me a legit trade that makes mine look stupid. Texican and Edward cat, you either own LT and wish he was more valuable, or you do not understand what a toe injury means to a back.

I am not sure why you singled us out, I would say it is pretty unanimous that you grabbed your ankles on this one. I actually would like to get LT on my team. Especially if I could get him that cheap. I am well aware of what a toe injury could mean to a RB. I am also well aware that 2 weeks does not make a season.

So show me some trades in Legit (not free yahoo leagues) leagues that show that people still trade for LT like he is the LT of old. You think i should just sit tight with my first two picks injured? Yeah, that will work. Trade for a Westbrook like player? Not gonna happen. I singled you two out because other gave thier opinons, you two did it in an immature way.

For what it's worth buddy, I think you made an aggressive move and are trying to get ahead of the curve. Good for you. Romo could end the year number 1 and is a huge upgrade with what you're dealing with now and even if LT is fine, you still got a top producer at a position. If LT's toe gets anyworse you won't get O'Sullivan for him. People are attached to the names. I had a bad feeling about him all summer and coulda traded him for Westbrook and an extra fifth. Makes me wanna puke...I'm in negotiation now for a big trade with an owner that still believes in him. If intereseted to see what the negotiation is you can go here http://forums.footballguys.com/forum/index...howtopic=422836

Big, not really sure where the hate is coming from on other owners but I think your trade is solid. I agree that LT is on the decline, I traded him from my keeper league before the year started (see my earlier post in this thread) and if your league is anything like mine, it's hard to get anything that is close to a "fair" deal. Romo is much, much better than Hass (and I'm a Seattle fan) and Cooley is a push with Shockey so I consider the trade to be LT and Hass for Romo. LT is on a decline (I feel a serious one), Hass is hurting and Seattle is a mess right now, while Romo is looking to be a top 3 QB this year. While it may have been nice to get a decent RB tossed in for you, that would have simply been the icing. You've seen the writing on the wall and you made the best move you could (a good one I think), so I say congrats. Again, not seeing why everyone has their head in the sand on LT.... I had the guy on my main team for the past 5 years and watched his games closely. I noticed a decline last year and suspected his performance and health would be too risky for me this year. Last year he started getting caught from behind, which I'd never seen, and he simply didn't have the same burst. Still good, but not the great LT I'd known. I'd love to hear some Charger fans chime in on this, but Romo for a near 30 yr old RB with a crap load of carries on him and mounting injuries? Yeah, I'd take that trade if I was getting Romo.
 
I think you did pretty well, too. Outside of redrafts with at least a few newbies I'm not sure what kind of value LT has right now. Those suggesting that any of the other consensus 1st rounders could be had are fooling themselves, IMO. In dynasty play the last time to get good value for LT was summer 2008.

No, immature would be insulting you. I simply stated your trade was awful. That's the truth.

I guess I don't see how you feel you upgraded your roster in two positions. Obviously Romo is as big upgrade over Hasselbeck, But Cooley and Shockey are a wash. So, I don't think you upgraded there and your RBs are lesser without LT. I understand with Colston out ,LT sucking, and your record at 0-2 you felt you had to make a move. But, did you explore other options? What about selling high on Julius Jones and making Hasselbeck part of the deal? You wouldn't get Romo in return obviously, but maybe you could get a starter for a few weeks until Palmer rebounds which I think he will. I don't think you could get Westbrook,etc. for LT, but I still think you could have received better value. That is just my opinion. I guess your comment "don't sell LT too cheap" was what I disagreed with.

If that trade is awful, what would be a fair trade in your opinion?
 
I gave up LT in a dynasty league.

Trade was

I give LT

I get Jon Stewart

Personally i think i got a steal, but i'm sure there will be those still living in the past thinking i got robbed. In a couple years i'll look like a genius, that i guarantee.

Thats weird, i took "worst trade ever" as insulting and immature. I guess it was constructive? Helpful? Insightful?
 
How about benching LT for Forte and Chris Johson and picking up a QB off waivers until Hasselbeck gets his receivers back??? Nothing says you had to play LT. Bad trade.

I am not looking to ruffle your feathers with this, but I dont think you will find very many balanced trades for LT at this point. Nor should you. It has only been two weeks. If someone is trading LT right now, its likely a panic trade. Short of some announcement that he is lost for the year, you are trading the guy at the worst possible time in terms of value.He was fine in week one. He didnt get in the end zone, but he had 112 total yards. This is 1,800 total yard pace and does not equal a bad game.

Week 2 he was injured and used sparingly. His line is among the best in the league. If he can get his toe healthy, he will go back to being a 120 - 150 yard/game type of guy. I dont hear anything out of San Diego that leads me to beleive that the toe injury is a huge issue. He is one of a few guys that - if healthy- can single handedly win games for you.

I get that you must not think that he will be healthy. Thats fine. Romo is not chopped liver by any means, and it seems like you are happy with the trade, so good for you.

i think you win everywhere in this deal.Stewart > LTCutler > PalmerWayne > CJ1st rounder > RussellIn a dynasty league this is a no brainer.
 
Traded LT 2 years ago, ended up with some guy named AD and a wr named megatron. I'd rather deal a guy a year early than a year late

 
For those that say worst trade ever, show me a legit trade that makes mine look stupid. Texican and Edward cat, you either own LT and wish he was more valuable, or you do not understand what a toe injury means to a back.
I am not sure why you singled us out, I would say it is pretty unanimous that you grabbed your ankles on this one. I actually would like to get LT on my team. Especially if I could get him that cheap. I am well aware of what a toe injury could mean to a RB. I am also well aware that 2 weeks does not make a season.
So show me some trades in Legit (not free yahoo leagues) leagues that show that people still trade for LT like he is the LT of old. You think i should just sit tight with my first two picks injured? Yeah, that will work. Trade for a Westbrook like player? Not gonna happen. I singled you two out because other gave thier opinons, you two did it in an immature way.
No, immature would be insulting you. I simply stated your trade was awful. That's the truth.
Thats weird, i took "worst trade ever" as insulting and immature. I guess it was constructive? Helpful? Insightful?
Oversensitive much?

I figured i am not the only LT owner (now former owner) who was trying to gauge his trade value after yesterday's game.

Here is at least one trade that you may be able to use to gauge his value.

I just completed a trade where i gave up LT, SHockey and Hasselback for Romo and Cooley.

I had started Palmer the first two weeks and needless to say i am 0-2. I love this as I obviously upgraded at QB and though i think Shockey will have a good year, i still feel happy about landing Cooley.

Take this info as you want, but i have a feeling i am not the only owner that was contimplating moving him and this shows that he still has value, dont sell him too cheap!

FWI- this is a one player keeper league, 4pt passing td, .25 ppr.
:lmao: Didn't you?IMO Cooley and Romo isn't that much greater than Hass and Shockey, so looks like you almost gave away LT for nothing....
Maybe, but put me in the camp that doesnt think he wil be getting over this injury anytime soon,I also have deep running back depth, Forte and LBJ, so i feel i upgraded at two positions while getting rid of a weekly headache with Tomlinson. If he coes back in two weeks and is the LT of old, of course i will miss him, but i dont think i could have risked an 0-4 or worse start to wait for him and for Seattle's WR to get healthy.
Your only other RBs are Forte (a second RB if you start 2 at best) and LBJ ( I'm not up on these acronyms you crazy kids use today, so I assume you are referring to Larry Johnson- the RB with 96 total rushing yards after two games) and you think this trade helps your roster? :lmao: I think I see the real reason your team is 0-2.
Thanks for the insulting remark.Anyways, as was said before, it is Chris Johnson, not larry Johnson. I also have Julius Jones, Fargas, Hightower, and Kevin Jones on my bench (lots of reserve room in this league).

The reason i am 0-2 is because my second round pick was Colston.

For those of you that say Hasselback and Romo is pretty much a wash, give me a break. You MIGHT have been able to make that arguement in July, not now with all of the WR injuries, including the most recent ones.

So, despite not having any other measuring stick for trading him, i made a horrible trade. Lets recap:

My trade (evidentally worst trade ever)

and then:

Some of the more reasonable deals on the list are:

LT for Barber (may be possible becasue he too is banged up)

LT for Westbrook (Any Westbrook owners want to chime in on this one? Guarantee you woultnt do this now)

(I would do either of those in a heartbeat, if offered -- especially in keeper/dynasty)

LT/Chad Johnson for Calvin Johnson/Marshawn Lynch (Very hopeful, owner would have to be a rook that is in love with big names)

LT for Turner/McNabb (Possible, but in my opinion and with my team needs, Id rather have Romo)

For those that say worst trade ever, show me a legit trade that makes mine look stupid. Texican and Edward cat, you either own LT and wish he was more valuable, or you do not understand what a toe injury means to a back.
I think u improve more at Qb than others suggest, but I think you got hosed here.
