Tracing Your Dynasty Team's Cost Basis (1 Viewer)

Footballguy
Not sure what to make of this, might be an exercise in futility. But I thought it would be cool to take my dynasty roster and trace each player back to what I used to acquire him, then just sort the original resources used best to worst, and sort my current team best to worst, and see how they line up together. Intended as a means to judge all trading and drafting cumulatively. Anyone picked up off waivers or free agency counts as zero cost (it only costs me cash). Any player who was inherited with the team, and eventually traded, counts as a cost of the player himself at the time he was traded. Anyway, here is the best I could come up with. I'm sure there are prior trades I couldn't remember that led to some of these picks. And some pick numbers I couldn't remember exactly and estimated. Shrug.
To be clear, the pick and the adjacent player have no relation -- each list is just sorted based on estimated value.

The league is PPR, QRRWWFKD

1.02 (2021) - D'Andre Swift
1.04 (2019) - Joe Mixon
1.05 (2020) - Travis Etienne
1.06 (2022) - CeeDee Lamb
1.08 (2017) - AJ Brown
Julio Jones (2020) - Aaron Jones
1.10 (2018) - Chris Godwin
2.02 (2021) - Late 1st round 2023*
2.03 (2015) - Rashod Bateman
2.03 (2018) - Elijah Moore
2.03 (2019) - Jameson Williams
2.05 (2016) - Garrett Wilson
2.05 (2020) - Jalen Hurts
2.06 (2022) - James Robinson
2.11 (2017) - Tua Tagovailoa
3.02 (2021) - Robert Woods
3.04 (2019) - Alec Pierce
4.02 (2021) - Trey Sermon
Kenny Pickett

Not bothering with kicker and defense

*For this experiment, I'm including any acquired future pick as an asset, but no natural future picks.

Has anyone else tried something like this? Is there anything I could change in the method that would make it more meaningful?
 
I suppose one potential fallacy here is if, for instance, I drafted Player X with pick 2.01 (2015), got 5 years of solid use out of him and then traded him for 3.01 (2020), the Player X acquisition and Player X cost cancel each other out and the net result would just be "2.01 (2015) yields 3.01 (2020)" which sounds terrible. But the 5 years of usage are not represented at all. Again, shrug.
 
interesting exercise. One thing I started doing was keeping a log of all my trades including my offers with notes on why I made the offer, why I accepted or declined a particular offer. Helps me grade my thought process.

Yeah that's a great idea. I keep a log of all my completed trades ... I really want to keep a log of my offers sent and received, but I've tried and I'm too darn lazy. So many offers.
 
I've always logged trades, and this year decided to also log adds/drops including my reasonings for each. Hoping it'll be fun to see the roster churn as a list, and also how injuries/byes force decisions.

Trying to go back and remember all my draft picks since the startup but that's been difficult. We switched from ESPN to Sleeper along the way so only have history for about half the years, and I just can't freaking remember who I took in the 4th in 2018, for example. They're not on my team anymore that's for sure, but still like to see who turned out to be anything...
 
I wish I could trace my team back, but our league is 30 years old so is no way to trace everything going back to the days of the newspaper, paper and pencil scoring. I think everyone on my roster is a result of a trade or FA pickup. I rarely draft in 1st round as I am always including the pick for other assets. Finally won our 14 team league last year after finishing runner up the previous four years in a row.

Gotta say that's extremely impressive. Five years straight in the title game. In a 14-teamer.
 
I'm the commissioner of our Dynasty League with 10 teams 2QBs and gunslinger point scoring. All TDs 6pts 20yrds pass = 1pt. QBs are the top.
QQ,RR,WWW,T,W/T,W/R, W/R/T K,D,IDP IDP

I created the league in 2018 with HS friends who are also in redraft day before the season started.
Everyone was allowed to set their predraft rankings and we did autodraft...'thus allowing us all to be screwed equally".
At the end/beginning/offseason. I trade everything in Google docs.
I print PDF Trades, Adds, Moves, Drops from each team.
I log draft and have a Trade Tracker to make sure YAHOO! tracks our teams properly as I don't totally trust it.

I designed the league after a previous FF Dynasty league I was in that disbanded and kind of missed but not the Douchebaggers that were in it.
I knew QBs were going to be Key to success. SO... in my predraft rankings I graded Russ Wilson, DWatson and a few others higher than others.

I had kind of a zero RB draft strategy. But got CHubb in very late rounds who I'd ranked higher used WALDMANs RSP.... My goal was to build value even if it meant losing. So, I was starting him 2018 rookie season where he'd get 3 carries a game. Included 105yd 2TD on 3 carries. Pretty stoked.
I made early Post Draft Comments about WTF is Mahomes...

QBs on WW post draft were:
Mayfield
Rosen
LJAX
JAllen


I grabbed Mayfield and eventually traded him for two 2nd round picks once I drafted Tua T.
I grabbed C Kirk,

The other QBs were later acquired within next couple days as owners cleaned up their rosters.

Notable Drops by others:
+CSutton,
-Clement + PLindsay
-IDP, + AEkeler,


Turns out I must've got Trubisky in the autodraft.
on 9/19/2018 I dropped Trubisky for Fitpatrick with top Waiver priority and immediately traded him. He's started out hot that year
TB QB owner needed QB and loaded at RB.

I gave him
QB Fitzmagic, 2019 1st (likely top 5). Jamaal Williams (handcuff to AJones his Starter) and Chris Thompson RB WAS.

I received:
ZEKE RB DAL
2019 2nd Rd. (which was more valuable because we SNAKED... I was into swapping 1sts for 2nds with top/loaded teams)
And throw-in Player CGodwin. who hadn't done anything the firs 2-3 weeks. Then broke out.

Next day, I traded
2019 2nd Rd I'd just acquired from Zeke trade
RB DHenry
TE Eifert for

TE Kelce,
WR Q Enunwa,
2019 3rd pick.
This trade also worked out.

9/21/2018
The owner of Josh Allen dropped him for Trubisky.
I grabbed Goedert same day.
Allen taken off Waivers by a higher priorty.

Other Add/Drops
WR Tyler Boyd was an add.
Andy Dalton, + and _

Also need factors in
Three WRs injured, needed one etc

This is good and useful regardless though
