    Jose Fernandez for Puig?

    Anywhere close? 10-team private league. My OF consists of Angel Pagan, Starling Marte, Marcell Ozuna and Jason Heyward. I have Kole Calhoun stashed on my DL. My pitching includes Gio Gonzalez, Madison Bumgarner, Sonny Gray, Tony Cingrani, Garrett Richards, Nathan Eovaldi and Michael Pineda. If I made the trade, I'd probably look to pick up Trevor Bauer in anticipation of a callup. Also, if it makes a difference 2015 draft picks are involved in the deal. I would be getting a 2nd round pick and Puig, and giving up a 7th round pick and Fernandez. Thanks for any and all help. I don't really want to give up Fernandez, but this at least intrigued me.
    The trade was proposed to me.

    • H2H - I'd do it in a heartbeat, on the top players alone. The draft picks are way in your favor. You've got three darn good SP with the ability to stream the other 3 if needed. Roto - not sure I would make the deal, biggest issue I have with Fernandez is the Marlins, worst scoring team in league last year, so Wins will be around .500 but his other stats are top of the league stuff. with season innings limits, he is just to valuable.

    • Tempting isn't it! I'll just give you my opinion here,OK! I had Jose' last season and wish I could get him every season from now on! Jose' has PROVEN how valuable he is. Puig has proven it in the Media only! Crowned the next Clemente or somewhere close based on 2 months. Sorry I don't buy it. The guy is trouble,at least to me. That shouldn't have anything to do with fantasy,just nos. But the guy has read to many personal greatness articles and I think his "Legend in my own mind" will effect his play,if not now eventually! Plus all the outside stuff involving him will catch up to him. I'd rather have a safe,productive,young,talented and proven player on my team! Just one man's opinion and good luck to you whatever way you go!

    • Fernandez is my anchor pitcher in 2 keeper H2H leagues, so you are asking the wrong guy. i would not consider any trade unless I got TWO top 20 offensive players in return.
