Same league with 12 teams, .5 PPR, and 1 QB....yesterday was the 1st day trades could be made official...IMO there were terrible trades below:

Team A gets - 1.5

Team B gets - 1.11 & 2.11

 

Team A gets - 2023 1st

Team C gets - 3.4 & 4.4

 

Team A gets - 2022 2nd & 2023 2nd

Team D gets - 2022 3rd & Leonard Fournette

 

I'm not a fan of any of these deals.

In all, Team A gives: 1.11, 2.11, 3.4, 4.4, 2022 3rd, Leonard Fournette

In all, Team A receives: 1.05, 2022 2nd, 2023 1st, 2023 2nd.

After a hard day's work, Team A gets two 2nds and a first for free.

I've always been told that most start 1 QBs aren't worth a 1st.

I offered a 2022 1st and Tonyan to a guy who won't start Prescott but for a bye week...rejected with no counter.

I get what you mean.

To a guy with Josh Allen, Joe Burrow and Justin Herbert, I inquired about Burrow (he's a Chargers homer and I figured-correctly-he values Allen over Burrow).  Also part of this, he said he really values having 3 starting QBs.  Fair enough.

He wanted me to send Baker Mayfield, my 1.04 and 3.05 to him for Burrow.  I countered with Daniel Jones, my 1.09 and 3.05 and it basically floundered from there.

I didn't say it but at the cost he wanted, I could just take Lawrence at 1.04 and still be ahead by Mayfield and my 3.05.  Hell, in a 1 QB league, I might have been able to get Lawrence with the 1.09.

12 team, superflex

Sent 

2.7, 3.7

Received 

2.11, 8.11, Alexander Mattison

 

He's only 22, and the Vikes are gonna have to make a decision at rb .....pony up on cook, or let Mattison walk.

 

Gives me a few guys to hope pan out at rb.....edmonds, eno, Gus Edwards, penny

Only decent backs are Hunt, and Gibson

Vikings already paid Cook.

5 year contract extension on September 12, 2020  worth $63 million in new money with a little over $16.3 million fully guaranteed at signing including a $15,506,361 signing bonus and fully guaranteed 2020 base salary..

Thanks AD.......and I missed that I guess, I knew a decision was going to have to be made, and cook is the answer

So Mattison is a ufa in 2023, age of 25.   I can live with that, and he will have fresh legs, and essentially cost me a 3rd rounder

I don’t think I’d give any 1st for Jeudy right now.

I also have 2.01 and 2.08, and wanted to get into top six of the draft. Probably paid to much to move up two spot mid round, but :shrug:.

Good one. I've been wondering what it would take to go from the 8 to one of the 3/4/5. I think this is about right for you.

Why is the three/four/five crucial, might I ask, and who do you see there?

Because I think the top five are pretty clear in a set of Harris/Chase/Etienne/Waddle/Smith. I could maybe have my arm twisted to go to six with Williams.

Seven and eight are Lawrence and Pitts. Tipping my hand there...

Gotcha. I've got it differently, but I'm not too radical about it. I don't have Smith there. I think 165 pounds is going to get killed in the NFL, Heisman or no Heisman. Tipping my hand also...

A trade like this is dependent on your draft board...if you have a top 6 it is a great move because you now guarantee you will get one of those players...overall a move like this may vary from owner to owner depending on their draft board.

I agree with this. It's really early to be swapping picks without knowing where consensus is or where draft capital has gone. Just seems too early. If you trade up to get the 1.01-1.03 because you're sure of it, then I could see that.

This is where I'm at. I see three RB's worth taking in the first round, and in this league they will go in the top 5-6. There is still plenty of time to move off pick 6 also. Once "consensus" forms and names start being attached to picks, I think I'll be able to trade out of that spot if I want. Would be an ideal spot for someone to move up for Lawrence or Pitts.

I guess this trade is really a chip on Williams.

There's very little reason to make a trade like this now. It's much more likely that the difference 1.06 and 1.08 is negligible in 2 months than there being a huge tier break after the 1.06.

You've quoted that number quite a bit. I don't think he's as light as that. Splitting hairs there though - either way it is a concern.

But his skills compensate for it, IMO.

I don't agree. There's an equal, possibly greater, chance that it will cost more as we approach draft time.

And giving up a mid second when you have two other second round picks isn't a big loss to get closer to ensuring you get the guy you want.

Been reading anywhere from as low as 160 to 175. I think Dr. Dan's previous work on BMI (if we could find it) for receivers would be instructive in how his height and weight will translate at the pro level.

Fair enough about his skills. But after watching Ruggs at about 190 this year look like an utterly emaciated waif out there, I'm awfully sensitive to very slight or short Alabama receivers. Too close, man, too close to the burn. It's a logical fallacy, but there needs to be some weight gain for me to want to take him at 1.4 or 1.5. Otherwise, I'll pass.

I get it. It's how I felt about CEH. I liked him until I saw him on an NFL field where he looked like a sixth grader.

It's possible - but most years there's very little difference between the 1.06 and 1.08 and giving away assets just because you have them isn't a winning strategy.

I would beg to differ and say a trade like this will usually depend on the consensus post draft board for top 6-8. Today's board won't matter when it's time to draft.

So whether this trade works out or not is TBD until the actual draft creates tiers.

I respectfully disagree...if I have a top 6 I want it locked in ASAP...I find that as the draft gets closer prying away a top draft pick usually gets harder and the cost gets steeper.

I would say this is true if you don't already have a personal cutoff of talent.  If you have a personal clear cut top 6 this ensures you get one of those.  It may be true that hype and consensus could differ from your personal top 6 which could mean you can get one of your six at pick 12 once all the dust settles but that is taking a chance.  This way you know you get one of your top 6 that you have clearly above the rest........for a fairly low cost.

I'd say the same thing I just said to Boston. I'd be willling to bet your top 6 now won't be your top 6 post draft and if you look back at past years probably never was either.

I bet none of you had CEH in your top 6 this time last year at this time as an example. And even if you did not like CEH he knocked Lamb or Juedy back to 6-7 in literally every single draft I was in so if you had one of those in your top 5 you never needed to go that high to get them.

I don't mean any offense to anyone when I say this but I think some of you think you know more then you do right now. That applies to me as well. A few top tier players will hold but anyone who thinks some players you currently view as top 6 will all hold I think are in for a rude awakening.

And it's not hype that changes values. It's real tangible stuff like draft pedigree and opportunity to say nothing of workouts we've not even seen yet.

For me, that was a lesson learned. You're right that I didn't have CEH as the #1 - but the hype about landing spot got to me and I took him there. Pre draft I wanted to take Lamb and I should have.

I won't make that mistake this year. I plan on making entirely NEW mistakes!

The order might change but it's doubtful the players will. For me, anyway.

I'd bet you, Gally and Boston all on this I'd just not have a way to verify your top 6 changed after the draft.

But just for kicks while don't you all 3 post your top 6, and then we'll revisit this after the draft.

First off I'm very high on CEH and and trying to buy him but that's all beside the point

The point is he dropped a player you would never have thought would have dropped. Happens every year.

Depending on how things shake out, moving from 1.08 to 1.06 might be near impossible in 2 months. 
To put it another way: sometimes there’s a top 6 you like, but rarely are there 8 guys in that tier.

But the other point is, he shouldn't have. At least CEH did have the results that could justify putting him ahead of others.

This year, however, there isn't a player I see with the numbers to justify knocking one of the top players out of their position. What, Rondale Moore or Rashod Bateman are going to seem a better pick than Waddle just because they appear to be in a better situation? I really can't see that happening.

My point was not to debate the merits of CEH, his performance whether he was outstanding or Bishop Sankey redux was not a factor.

The point of mentioning CEH is what you started the next paragraph off with when you said there is not a player whose numbers would knock someone down because you did not think CEH would knock someone down last year. That's the point I'm trying to make. Players will rise you did not see coming.

I don't know about your leagues but in mine it's generally RB's who rise up and lower were we have WR's ranked right now. Not so much upper tier WR's passing WR's based on your current rankings.  I used CEH as an example but most people also had Lamb or Juedy over Akers at this time. I mean some people had Lamb as 1.1. Again in my leagues Lamb never went higher then 6, I drafted him at 7.  But if you had Lamb as say your WR1 and Juedy as your WR2 last year that held. That might hold again this year with respect to WR's vs WR's.

That's not what I said. Or at least not what I meant.

I said CEH DID at least have the numbers to knock other players down IF he went to a good spot.  

I don't think there's a similar situation with this year's players. I don't see anyone with justification for knocking out the guys I have at the top regardless of landing spots. They just didn't perform well enough (or at all) on the field to do that.

You maybe right...definitely a chance that happens or at least the order changes which really doesn’t have an effect...yet, I am more then comfortable making this move as the cost is not prohibitive and I am betting on the fact this type of move may cost more later...bottom line for me is I move up in the draft and still have more control over who I pick and if I have a definite top 6 now I am very willing to take the risk for this cost...very worst case in this is I make another deal and break even with happened in this deal.

I for sure want to add I was not critical of the move, I don't think I said it was a bad trade. In fact I have a league where I have pick 6 and I would NOT take 2.6 to move back to 1.8 right now.  I absolutely understand that depending on were tier breaks are it could be considerably harder to move up to 6 from 8 once everything shakes out.

I just was debating/arguing that the current top 6 will be the same.

I don't have a top 6 and am not tied to anybody in particular so I wouldn't be rushing to move up 2 spots regardless.  However, I do understand the move for someone that is confident in their top 6 due to the minor assets they had to give up to do it.  

 

I also believe there is a long time between now and draft day and things will change.

This is exactly how I feel as well. I'm willing to move up seemingly arbitrary notches in the 1st round *while* the opportunity exists. If my strategy is to try and move up. Once somebody else buys into a spot, it will be harder to pry away. Once the consensus tier breaks form, those notches become harder to bridge. If I can do it today I will. Right now it looks like a top 6 to me and would love to bump from say 1.09 or 1.08. Unless I think the crop is going to be terrible there doesn't seem to be a compelling reason (to me) to wait.

Whether I have it as a top 6 or not I certainly would agree it is likely to change between now and draft day. But I know I would rather hold 1.06 than 1.08. I might even flip the 1.06 later for something better than what I paid to get there. I also might have better luck moving from 1.06 to 1.02 in a subsequent trade. But if my top 6 shuffles between now and draft day, I'd rather err on the side of *already being in position* to take advantage of such a potential shift than to worry about the fallout of the improved pick somehow becoming dilluted and not worth the February gamble.
