The trades you've made this week...and why? (1 Viewer)

I just traded away Dom Davis and received Willis McGahee straight up, in a keeper league. Good trade?
Yes, I am not a mcgahee fan but I like the trade. Here is why:HOU passing offense is just not that impressive, leading to more 8 man fronts.

I feel davis and mcgahee will put up similar numbers this season but next season as losman makes progress, mcgahee will have an easier time getting yards. BUF also has a GREAT Def and will put the offense on the field more and help them hold onto leads. That give mcgahee alot of yds late in the game when BUF has the lead.

Davis will miss a game or 2 each season, dont know if mcgahee is durable yet but lets hope for the best.

 
I'm contemplating dealing Griese and Steve Smith for Culpepper and a throw in WR (Randle El, G.Lewis). Other QB currently is McNair. WRs are CJohnson, TTaylor, Ferguson, Meshawn. Yeah the hit losing Smith is tough, but the chance to get Culpepper at his low point is very enticing and I think 2 of the other WRs I have or get off waivers will be serviceable.

 
Just heard from an owner that a trade involving:T.O.ForBellRoethlisbergerBaltimore Dis in the works. That should have some people pretty damned crabby.

Don't do it... Griese and McNair are very, very servicable and if you play matchups right should equal or outperform Culpepper... Steve Smith is way too big of a loss!

:no: :no: :no:

 
Not me, but another team in my dynasty league made this trade. It's a 2/2/3/1/1 league with IDP players.Team A sends QB Brian Griese and WR Michael Clayton (He had Kyle Orton, Kyle Boller, and Griese at QB and Horn, Coles, Burleson, Caldwell, and Clayton at WR)Team B sends QB Ben Roethlisberger and WR Muhsin Muhammad (He had Jake Plummer, Joey Harrington, and Roeth as QB and D-Jax, Muhammed, Antonio Bryant, Ferguson, and Toomer at WR)

 
Traded J Lewis for F Taylor. Have no faith in the BAL offense and at this rate the DEF will start losing players to injury by mid-season due to being on the field so much. I can't believe BAL is this bad.

I've got a headache for 2 days now cause all I am thinking about for my league is trades..what to do ...yes or no...etc..I was offered Rod Smith, Isaac Bruce & Ahman GreenforWayne, Brees & Brandon LloydAlso I've been thinking of offering Thomas Jones & Lloyd (or someone else here)forFred Taylor & Plaxico Burress(if I don't do the Wayne trade)Since the Fred Taylor owner is sitting at 0-2 and his real "threat" is only LTORThomas Jones & a throw inforRicky Williams & Mushin MuhammadThinking too much like this has given me a headache!!

 
Busy day for me yesterday. I'm in two money leagues (one redraft and one dynasty) and made trades in both yesterday.Smaller deal first, in the dynasty I sent Charles Rogers, Josh Brown, and $6 (of our yearly $25) allotment for Deshaun Foster to cuff Stephen Davis since I'm stuck relying on the Carolina RB until Benson takes over.In the redraft I have good RB depth and sent Stephen Davis and Derrick Mason away for Chad Johnson and Kevan Barlow. I can now pair up CJ with TO at WR :eek: for the first great WR core I've had in years.

 
I made my first trade of the year this morning. I gave up: Bettis, Griese, T. Taylor for K. Orton, C. Chambers.While on the surface it might look like I got ripped, I like Chambers and his value is LOW. I still have Portis, SJax, and S. Davis (my mid round steal), as well as picking up Dayne off waivers last night. Chambers, even in a poor offense has still been somewhat productive and I think Miami's O is better this year than in the past 2. Taylor OTOH could have a big week this week, which I used as a ploy, but, there are quite a few cooks in the kitchen in MInny and I think Williamson will be used once the playoffs are out of reach...which might be sooner rather than later. Bettis I liked because I also drafted him late...but it's obvious that FWP is the man now and Duce is still in the picture. Orton is a gamble, but they play some REAL soft defenses and he's my backup to Plummer. Griese will have some good games, but I don't see him having A LOT of them.Overall, I think it's about an even trade. Chambers was my target...as WR was my weak spot. Wayne and Rod Smith are my 1 & 2...Glenn & Battle are my others. Chambers should be more consistant as I just think he's more talented and on a better team.

Not my team but here goeesWrecking Crew trade Antonio Bryant, Ahman Green and AndreJohnson to Gunny Wrunchers for Anquan Boldin, Isaac Bruceand Fred Taylor.

 
Dynasty league where I am just finalizing a deal where I would send Stephen Davis and Drew Bledsoe for Trent Green and Eddie Kennison. My QB are Bledsoe, Lefty & Eli so I could use an upgrade. My WR are weak too but Davis is my RB #4 or 5. Allplayers are older so I don't see any long term ramifications but it improves both our lineups.

 
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...
And how'd you get that team exactly? Several rip off trades?
 
Dynasty league...........traded Ahman Green for Jam Lewis....... I liked his late season schedule.

 
With only Barber,Bell and K. Jones in the backfield(traded FWP for P. Manning last wee) I am trading Harrison for M. Anderson. Will leave me with Horn, Mike Clayton, T. Taylor and Troy Williamson as WR's.Lets see what happens?

Im sorry, but trading Harrison for Anderson is ridiculously dumb.Yes, he is starting off slow, but guess what? So is Mike Anderson. You should be able to do much better that MA for MH. I would think...

 
It would be great if this topic was regenerated every week. i.e. Trades occurring in your league - Week 4.....Everyone could then post all of the trades that go down in their leagues givingn the rest of us a good idea as to what value we could expect to get from our players.Starting the topic new every week would help to keep the topic fresh and current.

What if I just bumped this and changed the title? (note: I haven't bumped it all year).The reason I like it all in one thread is because you can look back not just on this week, but on how values have changed in the average player's mind across the season, all in one thread.

But it's something I'll do (or a mod can do) if you guys would like.

 
You have a point. But, do you not think it is interesting to see the past trades and how the players' values fluctuate?

I've changed the title. That should be enough...there's no reason to have more than one thread on this...let's not make the mods too angry today.
 
I bumped this twice, I think, because I like to get a feel for values and how they change from week to week. Am I alone on this?

 
Giving:Willie ParkerCurtis MartinGetting:Clinton PortisNoname DBSounds lopsided but check out the scoring in my league:2 PPR1 pt/20 rushing6 pts/all TDsSo unless you've got Westbrook, LaMont Jordan or Tiki, your only hope for getting production out of the RB spot is touchdowns. I have KJ as my RB2 and MeMo riding the pine (Parker and MeMo were both WW pickups)

No, you're right.And now, there's two threads on this...one an exact copy of this one.

Fantastic.

 
Would u give FWP and Plummer or TGreen for Collins and FTaylor??
That's not what this thread is for.If you're looking for that, go to the Assistant Coach forum...or check the thread in my signature.

This thread is to find out what trades are *actually* being made, to see the real-life value of players.

I don't want to step on any toes Keys. It was just getting to be too much to scroll through all of the pages looking for current information. The deeper we get into the season, the more it's going to be, and this thread was starting to fill up with a lot of 'fluff'.If you want me to delete the other thread, or if you would like to handle a weekly thread, please let me know and I'll gladly do so.

Hah.Stepping on toes? I could care less whether it's my thread, your thread, or my Aunt Maia's thread.

I don't think there should be a weekly thread...I do think this should be bumped every week, and you have a good point there, to change the title for every week.

My problem is, your thread is no different than this one. With the date above each post, you can tell what week the trade took place.

It keeps the records of every trade that someone's posted, and if you skip to the end, you can find the most recent trades.

There's no need for a new thread...and the mods will smote us if we have two of them. That's all.

If you want me to put your name at the beginning of this thread instead of mine, I'd be happy to. :) Besides, my real name is Matt, not Keys. Obviously, being called Keys gives me no credit at all. :thumbup:

 
Pending any better offers (unlikely) received by the other party this week, here's the blockbuster I just put together:Team A Gives:Deuce McAllisterTom BradyBrandon StokleyTeam B Gives:Peyton ManningWarrick DunnThis is a 10-team, 2QB 6pt PATD league, so Brady and QB's in general have quite a bit of value. Team giving Deuce has Edge, Westbrook and Larry Johnson still on board, team giving Peyton needs help everywhere.

 
I traded Marcell Shipp for Lamar Gordon and a sixth round pick next year. Arizona sucks and all Shipp gave me was a headache having to decide between him and three other options.

 
I just made a trade today.12 team 4 player keeper leagueI sent L. Coles and Willie Parker and a fifth round pickfor Torry Holt and L. GordanSo my wide outs are Holt, D. Jackson and Fitz. I am hoping this puts me over the topAC

 
Yesterday before MNF I traded away Brandon Jacobs, Ciatrick Fason, and Courtney Anderson for Mike Anderson, Tatum Bell, and Ron Dayne.Last week I traded away Willie Parker and Matt Hasselbeck for Todd Heap and Donovan McNabb.Am currently trying to ship out the Denver RBs and Heap for Gonzo, Fitzgerald, and a couple scrubs to make it even number of players.

I just proposed Fast Willie Parker (me giving up FWP) for Jamal Lewis. What's nuts is, I'm a Ravens homer, and I'm still not convinced that this would be a good deal this season.

Yeah, funny thing is everyone in my league says the other guy ripped me off! I guess since his RB's were Marcel Shipp, Tatum Bell, Portis, Moats, & Suggs than thats how it goes.

Meh, it's okay.People were giving me crap before the season when I traded Barlow/Wayne for C. Johnson...then again after I traded W. Parker for Bulger after week 2.

Now they're afraid to trade with me.

 
This is a trade I made yesterday. It's a start 2rb and 3wr league. I gave up more, I know that.I gave CMart, Drew Bennett and Chambers for Horn and Chris Brown.My starting RBs and WRs now look like this:LTBrownHoltHornDJax

 
3rd year dynasty. Traded Vick, J. Jones, M. Barber, '06 #1 for C. Palmer, R. Moss, S. McDonald, and his '06 #2.I have some RB depth (Caddy, L. Jordan, TJ Duck, C. Perry) but my only real QB was Vick. I love Palmer's short and long term potential, and Vick's inconsistency and injury potential could take out my team at any time. I felt the Jones for Moss was basically a wash. I still need a reliable backup for Palmer.
