Trader’s Corner: Big Names, Big Trades

This week features several top ten talents changing hands. As I’ve been reading through the emails sent in for this column, I can’t help but notice two things:

1. Our readers are really smart fantasy players who make savvy trades.

2. Our readers sometimes play in really complicated leagues!

Seriously, the response has been great so far and I think it’s a lot of fun to vote on fantasy trades like the ones coming in to Trader’s Corner. What gives it another dimension is we’ll be able to look back through some of these posts later to see how the trades really pan out. If you’d like to submit a recently completed or pending trade for a vote, send it to I can usually respond to most emails within a day or two to give you my take, and at the very least every trade submitted gets posted in the column. Without further ado…

Trade #1

12-team keeper, keep 6 (count as first 6 rounds), keep forever

Trade #2

16-team dynasty w/OPS, K/BB, and SV/HD cats

Getting the J-Fer side (already owns Walker, Gausman, and Ventura), also owns Neil Walker 2B

Trade #3

20-team keeper league, 20 keepers, farm rosters

Trade #4

20-team H2H dynasty, 22 keepers, 15-man farms, 6×6 (Holds, OPS)

    Those were some tough choices! The Rendon for Adams was the easiest one for me to make. Rendon all the way.

    In a 12-team points league, in rebuild mode, which deal would you do?

    A. Give Nelson Cruz for Khris Davis and Alex Guerrero

    B. Give Nelson Cruz and Jenrry Meijia for Springer, Russell, Correa?
