Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Basically, the commissioner of my league is getting A. Peterson and V. Shiancoe. So, he has a conflict of interest. Do you think this is a fair trade?
Visanthe Shiancoe (Min - RB)
Adrian Peterson (Min - TE)
Marshawn Lynch (Buf - RB)
Matt Cassel (KC - QB)
Greg Olsen (Chi - TE)
Austin Collie (Ind - WR)
Mason Crosby (GB - K)
When I said "when considering a trade, nobody cares about the impact of the players on each team", i meant all people evaluating the trade outside of the people involved in the trade.
of course, the people involved in the trade care about the impact the traded players have on their team.
why would the people not involved in the trade care about the impact of the traded players on teams of the trading parties? the people involved in the trade only care about if the trade is of equal value.
and, in this case, the trade is not of equal value.
Hell no. Cassel is sucking the year, Olsen's doing "ok" Collie will be riding the pine by the end of next week, and Crosby's a kicker, they can be a dime a dozen. Only decent person he's giving is Lynch who is still underperforming.
uh, what he's isn't telling you is that the other team involved has major holes and Shiancoe is his back-up. His projected points are significantly improved by making this trade... our league has no available starting qbs. The team trading Peterson has no back-up qb and two qb bye weeks coming up. 4 of those players go straight in his starting line-up, and the Olsen replaces Shiancoe on his bench...
