Nada, Yahoo Fantasy is free, there are pay options if you wanna gamble, but basic league hosting is free
I would definitely make the trade. It's true this is a deep draft for WR and RB so there will be some quality guys around 10-15, BUT if one of the top rookie talents winds up on a team with great opportunity, you could drafting a superstar with that #1 pick. I mean there's probably not an AP or Megatron coming out of this draft, but you could land a Gore or Andre Johnson for the next decade.
I would probably make the trade, if he's really WR strapped I'd think about offering Harvin for that #1pick, but that's mostly because I don't believe he can stay healthy for a season and the #1 rookie pick is great value for him.
How many teams in that league? If its 14+ I think you have to keep a QB (Foles), if its a mid size or small league I'd probably keep Jeffery.

The kickers are a wash, you can find them anywhere, so to move up a few draft spots you gave up a decent if aging starting RB for an also aging WR that looks to be the third option on a run-first team. I would have had to pass on that trade

I don't think Blount will hurt Bell's value much, he might steal a few GL carries but he doesn't have the hands for much more. I think Blount is just injury insurance. Ridley's outlook gets a nice bump though.

If you had better options I'd say don't keep a bench player...(you can't start 4 RBs right?), but with that list I think you're on the right track keeping Rice and Tate. Brady is replaceable and maybe redraft-able, and I'm just not a Harvin believer, he finds too many ways to stay off the field.

I wouldn't hold my breath on Bernard being tossed back unless you know his owner is already RB stacked. He's being ranked as a top 10-15 RB for next year, so if he IS available you'll have to check the rest of what's out there, because someone is making bad decisions.

Matt might be overestimating the value, but he's right that this is prime time to trade Patterson...
He's a big guy with all kinds of talent, did very well near the end of last year....
He's in a new offense, with new coaches, at least two talented pass catchers that he'll share targets with and still no idea who's gonna be throwing them the ball... and there's a Running Back in Minnesota that's pretty much the focus of that team.
Patterson's upside looks to be high to mid range WR 2 for fantasy, but a lot of people are convinced he's gonna have a breakout year so his trade value is sky high right now.

No way I would make either trade! Marshall is the best player on your team, I wouldn't take an average TE or risky RB for him, I wouldn't take both players and the pick for him even if I got to keep the 54 pick..

It depends on what you get offered in return, but... and I mean a big BUT... Marshall is the best receiver on your team, and it's not close. He's the only proven, main target on his team, fantasy WR1 that you have. The others have the potential to get there, but Marshall's already been there and done it.
Patterson in unproven, behind Jennings, and who's gonna be throwing him the ball?
Tate is the second or third option on an offense that runs through Megatron.
Randle is unproven, and second target behind Cruz
Williams is the third target behind Dez and Witten
Unless I got a VERY nice offer for him, I would try to trade any of these others before I let go of Marshall

First, don't worry about the hall of fame, it's just an advertisement for a car company.
The league has to be set up ahead of time as a 'keeper' league, and I don't think the standard Yahoo public leagues offer that setup. Next year you can try to get into a custom league with keeper settings, but choose carefully, you'll have to rely on a commissioner to run the league... and some are better than others.
One last bit of advice, if you want to compete, learn to draft your own team.
Doug Martin could be a value coming back from injury
If Ray Rice's legal trouble doesn't side track him, people already forgot that it was largely a bad hip and bad O line that made last season so bad... both should be better by the start of next year. He could be an RB1 that you can get in the 3rd round in Aug/Sept.
I also think Nick Foles and Josh Gordon will get drafted way too early and have trouble repeating
