Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

Unless this is a dynasty or keeper league, I don't understand how you got this roster.
As far as I can tell, that's a very good team for a 10-team league. Also, if the Floyd on your bench is a Cardinal and not a Charger, your team is already in the playoffs. BTW, your buddies can't play all the QBs they drafted. They can only play one, and with your bench, one of them is gonna come creeping in the late night hours for some kind of trade-nookie.

Obviously a popular question Anthony. I agree with the majority consensus: take Julio if you're going for upside, take Green if you to maximize your chances of getting what you pay for. It's that simple, don't overthink it. Good Luck!

I agree with Matt (largely). The logic you presented is sound, but this is not the deal for you. Forte may indeed be at his peak, but what a peak! And your league is PPR as well?!! Sell high on Forte if you have to, but for the love of Mike, keep Floyd, who looks like a budding star already. Also, sell Forte for someone better like Giovanni Bernard or my favorite: Andre Ellington. If you offer the trade today, the Elligton owner will probably make the deal and give you some change for your trouble because he's not really established yet. Good Luck!

I agree with Brent. If you HAVE to trade for Thomas, keep Giovanni and trade the muscle hamster. There is something unconvincing about Martin's performance since his injury and Gio should be a monster in a PPR league. But personally, I would keep Martin AND Giovanni and I would pick up the Chief's TE (Kelce, or something like that). I like Reed this year, and TE performance outside of Gronk and Graham is so close together that it doesn't matter who you have.

I would need to know the roster size, but a THIRTY team league???
The size of your league alone makes this a competitive offer. Try to get a younger pitcher like Dallas K, or Kluber, and another OF like Joc Pederson or Polanco...but if you get those tweaks you need to do the deal!

Yes. No matter what league you're in, when a pitcher craps the bed, you drop him before you commit the colossal error of putting him in for " a good matchup."
Sucky pitchers don't have good match-ups. Sucky pitchers suck.

you need to accept the trade before the other guy comes to his sense. Altuve is producing in at least 3 categories, and gives you the steals you need. Hosmer is a mystery wrapped in a riddled swaddled in a big cloth diaper smelling more than faintly of...poop. Shields will outpitch Shark. Shark's numbers are not sustainable, not to mention the absolutely HORRIFIC lack of run support for pitchers at Wrigley. Do the trade. You'll than me later.

Reyes is a nice guy in real life, who plays on a surface that will get him injured AGAIN, you mark my words. Verlander...well, as far as I'm concerned, Verlander never fully recovered from off-season surgery. So NO I would not make that deal.

I would hold on to Xander. Zobrist has trade value if you can deal him, but if you had to make a chaoiuce, I take the kid with upside. Zobrist wasn't really proviidng anything I can't replace off waivers.

I see no evidence that Simon is anything other than a flash in the pan. Personally, I'd hold on to Desmond. See if Keuchel (sp) is available, or Chris Archer, or Klubel or Zamir instead.

It's a toss-up. However, Gordon has never maintained this pace over a full season and F-Rod is old as balls. That means that technically, the other guy is selling high. I like Ventura to end the year somewhere in the top 30SPs. I'm sorry I couldn't make a stronger argument, but as you know, there are a lot of unknowns here, but it seems to me that what you really need is just a closer. You should shop around with the rest of the owners to see if you can't get a better deal. Good Luck!

It's about even. Depends on your strengths...are you stronger in batting or pitching? And is it H2H or roto? if your team is stronger in pitching this deal is good for you. If pitching is weaker, i still like harvey over Sale despite concerns of innings caps.
