Trades!

Have you proposed and/or facilitated any trades yet? I just traded Malcom Floyd and AJ Green for LeGarrette Blount and Ryan Fitzpatrick. I was loaded at receivers and needed another RB and a decent QB2.

Wow. Not a great trade IMO, you gave up one of Phillip Rivers goto guys and one of the best young receivers in the league for a back up RB and Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Post your whole team so I Can see who you have.

That trade will probably be rejected or you probably get the short end of the stick. AJ Green is considered a top 10 WR. I say wait it out and hope your big stud WRs score enough to pass through the season. Once you're in 4-5 games into the season, then start gauging trade interest around the league. I also got plenty of WRs and QBs, but going to wait it out to see which RBs are worth trading for. There will be unsung heroes that will breakout, so keep an eye out for them.

Trying to trade Wallace,Turner and Maclin for Lynch. He won't do it though.
[/quote]

Don't do it!!!

You're giving too much.

I learned my lesson last year not to give away talent for big names like CJ1K.

It's better to have 2 good receivers than have a good RB.

You want to keep as much talent as possible and don't panic if you lack talent in a position. The team that receive a trade hold the leverage.

Keep Wallace and Maclin because their team are facing a lot of high scoring offenses and will score points.

I want you to target Jacquizz Rodgers because he is the most natural fit for the high no huddle offense of Atlanta.

Solid RBs are thin this year due to the league being a passing league, you just have to eat Turner's misfortune. Experts knew to stay away from Turner because he was slowing down and was a bad fit for no huddle.

Just try to maximize your talented WRs and get more playermakers to compensate the weak RB Corps.

Naw, you don't understand. This is a 7 man league. I was forced to keep Turner. I would still have Nicks,Jennings,Brown as WR's. lol

Thanks though.

Got offered:
Roddy White
Beanie Wells
Kevin Smith

for

Andre Johnson.
[/quote]

Nope. Kevin Smith could be a back up when Leshoure gets back, Beanie is injury prone and battling for touches with Williams. I wouldn't do it.

That's what I was thinking. AJ is almost guaranteed to pick up 15+ a week. Beanie will not live up to fantasy potential and Julio seems like the go to guy in Atlanta now.

Giving up AJ Green and Floyd for Blount and Fitzpatrick is a terrible trade. Green is a top 10 talent overall you don't trade him. Blount is a backup on his team, he'll only be worth something if Martin gets injured.

Anyway I don't mess with trades until probably around week 4 or 5. People overreact to week 1 outputs sometimes . You have to give it a few weeks to get a proper gauge on how certain players are going to perform

Just sent out a trade request.

I give:
Anquan Boldin
Alfred Morris

I get:
AJ Green

Would appreciate any opinions.
[/quote]

That's a steal for you if he accepts. Q has never really amounted to much here, the fantasy receiver from the Ravens you want is Torrey. And there's the whole never trust a Shannahan RB thing.

Thats an absolute STEAL if he accepts. Boldin is inconsistent although we know what he can do, and Alfred Morris is a product of Shanahan's carousel....
AJ Green is the ONLY stud receiver on Cincy's roster beside an injured Gresham....

In a ppr league. I am thinking about trading my Ahmad Bradshaw for their Doug Martin & James Jones.

This person is willing to do this trade. My thoughts are that Bradshaw is a sell high guy with Wilson eventually getting into the mix. Martin is only getting started. Plus James Jones will be a great addition if the Packers shop Jennings before the trade deadline.

On top of that, I still have David Wilson which I can hold over his head later.

Sent a trade yesterday....got a response this morning saying he's thinking about it..

I trade Jennings,Gronk, and Wallace for McCoy,Harvin,Pettigrew and a 4th round pick.

it's a keeper league, so the 4th pick has value. My RBs are pretty weak, (Martin,Turner,Ridley,Brown) The WR's I would have left are Nicks,Brown and Maclin.

Someone in one of my leagues just traded away Aaron Rodgers for Green-Ellis straight up. Totally bogus and lopsided trade and a few of us are pretty pissed about it, it didn't wind up getting vetoed somehow (not sure that everyone saw it before the deadline).

The guy trading Rodgers is an idiot apparently and just handed the other guy the championship. He now has Rodgers, Julio, AJ Green, Welker, Mccoy, Kevin Smith, Vernon Davis, Antonio Brown, Shonn Green, Redman, Cobb and LaFell.

His team was pretty good before but at the expense of having a so-so QB, now he has a top 3 QB. I suppose he doesn't have a ton of depth, behind McCoy, but still to trade a top 3 first round overall QB for a low end 4th round RB2 is nonsense to me. These are all friends so I know there's no shady backroom deal type stuff going on, the one guy is just dumb, but If the guy who accepted the trade winds up winning there will be a black cloud over it. Asterisk.

It seems like other members of The Flock have seen some pretty lopsided trades, recently, but these two trade proposals, I had received in one of my leagues, have to take the cake. As everyone knows, when you play with a bunch of "randoms" in a public league, there's always going to be "that" person who assumes everyone is clueless. So, what were these trades, exactly? Well...

* One had him trading Santino Holmes, to me, for C.J. Spiller...

* The other was offering Greg Olsen for Rob Gronkowski...

Like, seriously: What?!?!? Keep in mind, this was on Tuesday and I first saw these trades right after I woke-up and went onto my computer. What was this guy thinking? NO one, in their right mind, would ever consider accepting these deals! I mean, the #1 running back (in standard ESPN scoring) for a hit-or-miss wide receiver, who happens to catch footballs from an even more hot-or-cold quarterback. Then, to have the audacity to offer me an average tight end on the backend of his career for (arguably) the best TE, in terms of Fantasy Football, is just ridiculous.

Luckily, I was able to keep calm and only give these trades the lowest, possible rating. Then again, I was just "this" close to ranting a message right back at him, but there was no point. He wouldn't have read it. Heck, I think he porpusely did this just to rustle my jimmies, seeing how I'm undefeated and he has no wins...

Okay, in another Fantasy Football league (of mine), someone is proposing a trade that consists of: Tampa Bay's Mike Williams and Dennis Pitta for the Giants' Andre Brown, whom I have.

While that deal is intriguing, the problem relies in the uneven amount of players involved in this trade. So, what if I added Darrius Heyward-Bey as a placeholder (over my other WRs, which include Roddy White, Torrey Smith, Steve Smith and Pierre Garcon) and Jason Witten OR Jared Cook, while I ask for Alfred Morris from him (seeing how it's extremely doubtful that I'm able to land Arian Foster from his roster)?

Should I change any of my proposals? Would you accept this deal? Would you make this trade? Thanks in advance!

I've got an interesting one for you guys. I'm looking to move CJ Spiller because I think FJax will take over the starting role once he gets healthy. Here's my trade proposal:

CJ Spiller and
Antonio Brown

for

Reggie Bush and
Larry Fitzgerald
