    trading draft picks question

    I am in a 12 team league that drafts on Saturday, I have the 6th pick in the draft the team with the 8th pick has offered me his 2nd round(17th) and 4th round(41st) pick for my 1st round(6th) pick. Would you take this deal.
    It is a pretty standard league PPR, positions are QB,RB,RB,WR,WR,WR,FLEX,TE,K,D

    • NO are you nuts that means the top 16 players are gone before you ever select. That means the Top 8 RB's are gone, the top 5 Wr's are gone and top 3 Qb's are gone.

      • I am looking at it like this, what team would I rather have after the 4th round. This is just my picks according to ADP

        I don't do the trade

        S Jackson
        S Smith
        Ron Brown

        If I do the trade

        I still get Smith Brown and Grant because they were taken with my picks and I lose S Jackson but with the two picks he gives me I have again if drafting according to ADP

        Cal Johnson
        S Smith
        R Brown

        Meaning I got Housh and Calvin which is 472 points last year, for SJackson who IF healthy is a 300 point player in our set up.

    • 6th is bottom of the top rb tier. Hmm. I don't think a 2nd and 4th is enough.

    • I wouldn't. By the time you make your first pick the top two teirs of RBs will be gone which includes guys that catch the ball out of the backfield like LT, Forte, Portis, etc. Guys like Fitz, Andre Johnson, Moss, and Calvin Johnson will most likely be gone too. You're gonna have a hard time competing without a stud guy like that.
