    Here to help-seriously-ask away!!

    My friend said he loves making trades. We're in 3 leagues together. In our third league, he traded away Arian Foster and Malcom Floyd for Pierre Thomas and Julian Edelmann. I thought the other guy made out HUGE on his end.

    So my friend said he'd talk about trades with me today. Can you help me work trades out with him for each team that are good for my team and doable for him?

    1st league-

    12-team H2H 0.5 ppr league. 1 QB, 3 WR, 2 RB, 1 TE, 1 W/R, 1 K, 1 DEF

    My Team-

    QB- Flacco, Rothlisberger

    WR- Andre Johnson, Miles Austin, Steve Smith (Giants), Jacoby Jones, Sidney Rice

    RB- Best, Portis, Harrison, Tomlinson, Huggins

    TE- Jermichael Finley, Greg Olsen

    K- Nick Folk (Jets)

    DEF- New Orleans

    His Team-

    QB- Shaub, Eli Manning

    WR- Heinz Ward, Dez Bryant, Terrell Owens, Breaston, Crayton, Manningham

    RB- Mendenhall, Mathews, Charles, Maroney, Sproles

    TE- Witten

    K- Brionas (Tennessee)

    DEF- Miami

    I give Flacco, Miles Austin, Portis, Huggins

    I get Shaub, Mattews, Dez Bryant, Sproles (Only interested in these players and Charles)

    I get a Shaub/Johnson tandem, but maybe I downgrade at WR too much?

    2nd League-

    12-team 0.5 ppr H2H league. 1 QB, 2 WR, 2 RB, 1 TE, 1 W/R, 1 W/R/T, 1 K, 1 DEF

    My Team-

    QB- Peyton Manning

    WR- Andre Johnson, Steve Smith (NYG)

    RB- Best, CJ Spiller

    TE- Witten

    W/R- Ricky Williams, W/R/T- Harrison

    K- Rackers (Houston)

    DEF- New Orleans

    Bench- Hightower, Donald Brown, Mike Williams(TB), Gaffney, Huggins

    His Team-

    QB- Brees

    WR- Randy Moss, Heinz Ward

    RB- Pierre Thomas, RB- Forte

    TE- Clark

    W/R- Dez Bryant, W/R/T- Sproles

    K- Lindell (Buffalo)

    DEF- Philadelphia

    Bench- Rothlisberger, Slaton, Edelmann, Marshawn Lynch, Schilens

    I'd only be interested in Clark, Bryant, Sproles(worth more in this league w/return yards), and Rothlisberger.

    I give Witten/Harrison/Donald Brown or Ricky Williams/Harrison/Brown

    I get Clark/Dez Bryant/Rothlisberger ?

    • I never know what anyone else will do, and he does lose but I wouldn't call it huge. Edelman may miss the next two weeks and appears to be the Patriots 4th WR, but Malcolm Floyd is also unproven. Pierre Thomas is a top 10 RB this year, Foster is top 20.

      First team waive your kicker, pickup Rackers or Buehler or even Nugent, the jets offense just isn't that good so having their kicker isn't the best idea. If you are willing to part with Miles Austin I would, trade him for Charles, obviously you have to make it a two for two deal, maybe throw in Huggins and have him throw in Crayton.

      His team in your first league is alot better than yours, so it is very hard to find a trade the only position your are above average at is WR and you only have 4 of them so you really can't trade one. This may take forever.

      I don't understand your I give I get after, I doubt you can get Schaub and you better RB's not Dez Bryant. (very overrated, rookie WR's hardly do well and he already has been hurt, he maybe great next year even a top 10 WR, but this year he is being drafted way too high.) Try to get Sproles, Charles or Matthews as a two for two deal including one of your better WR's.

      For team 2 you did alot better, but what you are proposing again would never be accepted, you win by a huge margin, so huge I would vote against it if I could. Since you want Bryant I would offer hightower for him, you probably won't get him, but he isn't worth you giving up any of your starters for. It is very hard to get Clark and you already have a top 6 TE, Witten is fine. Rotheslisburger you don't need, Manning hasn't missed a game in like 8 years.

      I am not trying to be rude, but you seem to want guys you don't need, or are unwilling to give up much to get them. Miles Austin is the only player you are willing to give up who could start for his team as it is currently constructed.
