This thread started as an idea from a staff member back in 2005. The point is to give a fair representation of what players are going for on the open market.Note: This is NOT a "rate my trade" thread. Keep the questions like that out of here--we want to keep this thread in the SP.

I made a picks trade in a 10-team league that drafts tonight (ESPN rules).I traded picks 9, 12 and 32 for 4, 17 and 37. They are even on the draft calculator. I'm gambling that someone will take Manning with one of the 1st 3 picks, and Holmes or Alexander will fall to me, and I felt the gap between picks #12 and #17 is very small. The other guy (who's a shark, but not a FBG) likes Jamal Lewis (and didn't want to take Alexander at #4) but it doesn't make sense to pick him at #4.

In my main league, I made a huge trade, and all for one player. Most would think I got screwed over, but I have my reasons. This is a dynasty, TD-only league BTW. I ended up trading Warrick Dunn, Michael Bennett, Jimmy Smith, my 2005 1st rounder (which was the 1.12 pick since I won it all last year), and my 2006 1st rounder for Chad Johnson.Gave up a lot, huh? Well, when I already have McNabb, Tomlinson, Portis, R Moss, Holt, and Owens on my team, trading some players that will not get much PT on my team for one of the top WRs seemed pretty good. I had drafted Bennett as a rookie, and was continuously frustrated with his injuries so I had had it with him. Jimmy Smith hurts a bit, as he is good for probably 6-8 TDs/year, but he's 36 years old and not getting any younger. Dunn hurts as well, but I got him super cheap last year, and with the Duckett factor, it's hard to predict what he'll do. The 1st rounders hurt as it hurts my chances of getting one of the better rookies this year and next. But again, I was happier consolidating...

 
i have this offer on the table.i give barlow(other guy has gore)i get bell(i have anderson)I have good RBs, LT2,K.jones, brown, anderson, barlowI do not know what to do. Thinking about taking the trade. Not high on any 49ers players and I would handcuff Anderson.

Interesting quandry. I'd probably do it, even though I'm not too high on Bell myself. I agree about the 49ers though, and think they will continue to struggle. Essentially you ARE trading a starter for a backup, but with the other players on your team, it doesn't hurt too badly, and it ensures you the Denver starter this year one way or the other...
 
1. In Z10, 12 team keeper league, IDP w/ 54 man rosters. Traded JJ Arrington and a conditional 2006 4th rounder for Cedric Benson. If Benson gets 800+ total yards, it becomes a 3rd rounder. I think Benson's value was at a low mark last week that had to be taken advantage of. Arrington may be good, but Benson was the 2nd highest RB taken (tied with Edge) in a decade for a reason. 2. In a keep 10 league with 16 teams and 16 roster spots per team, I traded T. Owens and the 1.08 for Larry Johnson and the 1.14, netting Aaron Rodgers at 1.14. I did this because I just took over the team and all the god players are old except for Bulger. I had TO, Jimmy Smith, Bettis, etc. Getting LJ helps me get a likely stud RB for 2006 and beyond in a league that rarely trades RBs. I'll finish last this year because of the bad job the previous guy did. But I'll head in to 2006 w/ LJ, Bulger, Rodgers, and some other young talent that should help me get back to winning.Colin

trying to get him to add C.Rogers or Nate B to the deal
 
[Dynasty]I traded McNabb/Evans for Collins/Michael Clayton/2006 1stI've been looking to trade away McNabb for quite a bit and haven't come across the right offer. Clayton is a nice complement to Burleson in my PPR.Turned down Collins/TO/Alexander/2006 1st and 2nd for McNabb/Burleson/LT2- Think Alexander and LT are on opposite paths and don't trust TO for a second. I also am confident in Burleson to take over nicely. I like what he did last season in "relief" of Moss as the #1.

Yesterday i traded harrington, garcia and ricky williams for kerry collins.

:lmao:
Im contemplating a trade where I give LJordan to get Ricky and FTaylor. Im in a dynasty IDP 10 player keeper and am looking to compete next year as this year is most likely in the toilet. The guy offerring up Fred and Ricky is a repeat champ so part of me doesnt want to contribute to another belt but the other part sees next year and after my draft this coming sat and next years (where Ill have #1-3 pick again) Id be more able to compete

 
10 team 2 man keeper (if you keep two you lose your first 2 round picks). last year traded my 3rd round pick for Harrison. So this year i dont have a 3rd. One of my keepers is Culp. So i traded Culp and my 10th round pick for his 3rd round and 5th round pick. Not sure how this will play out but we will see.

 
I'm offering D.Foster for T.Bell. I own Anderson, the other guy is looking for a starter, but he's worried aobut the rumbles in Carolina that Davis will start.

Those have to be unfounded. He still hasn't seen preseason action...

I got Holmes at #4, got Rudi Johnson at #17 (eh) and Gates at #37. I was generally pleased with how the draft unfolded (got Mike Anderson late in round 9 as my RB4).

Of course, the real question is, when did you get LJ?

I whiffed on that one. :bag:
 
I recieved an offer today in my Dynasty League:He offered Tony Gonzalez and wanted me to give up Jason Witten and Anquan Boldin. I declined.

Are you seriously considering this deal? You are totally getting hosed. Somebody argue with me on this one. Jordan is no sure thing, but at least he as potential--a KEY in dynasty leagues. Taylor's best days are behind him, and he gets no goalline work. And Williams has no heart, and is one slip up away from the 1-year mandatory vacation. DO NOT DO THIS DEAL.Tell me--what do you gain, long-term (or short-term, for that matter) from this trade?

 
I gave Harrison and Barlow to get Johnson and Anderson (PPR league). I actually made the offer before Anderson went huge, but he didn't accept until after Anderson went huge. He seemed to think that it was all smoke and mirrors, that it wasn't legit or something.I'm also offering Randy McMichaels and Ronnie Brown for Todd Heap to a guy whose RBs are Julius Jones, Michael Bennett, and Tatum Bell.

Okay, gotta stop this before the topic gets moved to the Assistant Coach, where I don't want it.This isn't a thread for "should I do this" or "I'm contemplating this trade"...that's not the point.

The point is to see completed trades, to get an idea of what kinds of trades are actually going through.

There's a whole other forum for the other stuff.

 
Yesterday i traded harrington, garcia and ricky williams for kerry collins.

:lmao:
Is your :lmao: smilie your impression of your leaguemates responding to you getting fleeced?
I love this trade. Its a 2 qb, 2 rb, 2 wr, 1 wr/rb, 1 wr/te, 1 k, 1 def league standard scoring. My team looks like this:

Collins

Mcnabb

Burleson

Bruce

Tiki

Edge James

Duece Mcalister

Branch

LJ smith

Wilkins

Skins D

jj arrington

mike anderson

willie parker

justin Mcariens

you really think that was a horrible trade? it enabled me to pick up mike anderson and parker off waivers ;-) so in essence, it was collins, anderson and parker for harrington, garcia and williams. and detoit looked HORRIBLE last night.

Nothing exciting about this trade, but it made a huge difference to both owners in a 12 team PPR FBG league:I drafted Westbrook and he drafted Ahman Green. He drafted Moats earlier than I thought he would be drafted. A few rounds later I drafted Davenport for trade bait. Right after the draft, I traded Davenport for Moats. Good trade for both teams, IMO.

Should make for good discussion, and give people an idea of what their players are worth on the open market. This was suggested about 3 weeks ago, and I just remembered to do it.

I traded Warrick Dunn for Tatum Bell. If Tatum didn't start for him, he'd be starting Week 1 with one RB...and I'm the Mike Anderson owner, so the Denver RBs are now my RB3.
I am thinking about offering that same trade. I have Warrick Dunn and was going to offer him for Tatum Bell. I have D.Davis and S.Alexander all ready and Mike Anderson so Denver RB's would be my RB3 as well.
 
I did some pre-draft maneuvering to trade picks and keepers. I ended up giving up Ricky, Harrison (2nd round pick), Steve Smith (3rd round pick) and Marcus Robinson (16th round pick) for Holt (2nd round pick), Collins (4th round pick) and Williamson (6th round pick). Ricky was my keeper, now Williamson is.I like to look back at the pre-draft maneuvers and see what the resulting picks ended up being. In hind sight, knowing that Harrison fell to the pick that i traded, I may have reconsidered the moves. However, I was looking to land Williamson as a keeper (we pick keepers in our 6th round).

 
Trade Antonio Gates $2, for Javon Walker $4. I did it because Gates busted the TD record last season. That's an alltime record that he's not likely to reach again this season. Plus he's going to miss a game which may or may not hurt my playoff chances.Also, I like Walker a lot this season. He's gotten noticably better every year he's been in the league. I think this is the year he makes that jump into the top 4.

 
Traded JJ Arrington/Stokley/Lelie for Owens/2nd Round Rookie Pick in 06.Why?Because I wanted the stud wr to go along with Priest, KJ, Rudi and still have DJax and Kennison to hold me over in case of injury. 16 Team League ..I hope to contend.

 
Another Zealots Field trade:I traded Burleson, Greg Lewis, Terry Pierce and Lamar Marshall for Reggie Wayne and Keith Bullock.He desperately needed multiple starters and gets 3 out of this.Edited to state that I also thought conditional trading (Rudnicki's Z10 trade where the pick for Benson can go from a 4 to a 3) was illegal.

My most recent trade (August 28) was a twofer: Mike Anderson and Kevan Barlow for Drew Bennett. This is a 12 team dynasty league and I feel Bennett has more upside than Barlow and Anderson.At the time I had Cedric Benson, Thomas Jones, Lamont Jordan, Domanick Davis, Willie Parker, Mike Anderson and Kevan Barlow at running back. I had Randy Moss, Michael Clayton, Andre Johnson, Chad Johnson and Javon Walker at wide receiver.I picked up Ron Dayne off the wire to fill the empty roster spot.On August 24 I traded Laveranues Coles and Mewelde Moore for Thomas Jones and Cedric Benson. The guy with Benson and Jones had gotten fed up with the Benson side show and desired to bolster a thin WR group.

 
Why was Mike ANderson on waivers? :confused:
LOL i dont know!!!
In a start 2 QB league, you actually made a good trade. Sorry, I jumped the gun. In a start 1 QB league I don't think that giving up a starting QB and his backup (who I presume would be your backups in a standard league) PLUS a talented runner who is showing his legs are back for Kerry COllins is a good idea. However, as said, in a start 2, thats a good deal particularly since you added Anderson.
 
Edited to state that I also thought conditional trading (Rudnicki's Z10 trade where the pick for Benson can go from a 4 to a 3) was illegal.
Zealots Field allows "conditional trades" if the conditions are carefully spelled out and are measureable. What is not allowed are "future considerations" trades which leave open some unknown consideration.

I traded Benson and Michael Jenkins for Andre Johnson and Michael Clayton. I am already thinking it was somewhat of a mistake as Benson was going to be one of my rbs of the future but hope to be able to use Johnson or Clayton and Barlow to upgrade my #3 back.

I also did some pre-draft moves in a 10 team 10 keeper league with a $380 salary cap. No PPR, but there is a WR/RB flex position.My 10 original keepers were to be Pennington, Priest, Faulk, T. Jones, J. Jones, Pittman, Holt, Burress, Witten and probably Lloyd. Not too exciting for a keeper league, so I decided to change things up.

1. I traded my 5th rounder (5.8) for Driver

2. I traded Holt/Burress and my first 3 round picks (1.8, 2.8, 3.8) for Chad Johnson, Boldin and his 2nd and 3rd round picks (2.3 and 3.3).

3. One owner had Culpepper and Bulger taking up over 30% of his salary cap money, so I took Bulger off his hands for the 2.3 pick I had acquired.

4. I waited anxiously Sunday evening as the first 2 rounds went bye and all of the stud rookies were taken and then at 3.3 I announced Mike Anderson and happily subtracted $1 from my cap room left. Yes, Anderson only cost $1. (The values are an average of 6 pre-season auction cheat sheets. Basically if you haven’t done anything lately, you fall under “all others” and only cost $1.)

After my first pick in the draft, I had the following players…

Bulger $45

Priest $39

J. Jones $30

Anderson $1

T. Jones $24

Pittman $21

CJ $38

Boldin $21

Driver $33

Witten $19

Lloyd $16

I added Jacksonville’s DEF and Vanderjagt later in the draft to fill my starting spots.

With Priest, I realize that I am pretty much in win now mode, so it is not a bunch of young studs to dominate a keeper league, but a pretty strong team to contend this year if they stay healthy. Before it is asked, I offered my first round pick for LJ and got declined, so at least I attempted to handcuff Priest.

Just dealt Andre Johnson & Reggie Brown for Tiki Barber & Steve Smith.
Wow.Do you live in Houston or something?
No, but not sure where the guy I sent AJ & Brown to lives.
Well, that's mainly why I was asking.That's ridiculous.

I'm at the point now where trading does my team no good. It's time for the season to start!
