Trader’s Corner: Want to Win? Make Some Deals!

Trades were flying fast and furious this week.  I love it. Trading is the best part of dynasty leagues. I always get a buzz when I make a trade. Do you? Trading is the best way to improve your team in dynasty leagues. If you are not making trades you are probably not going to win.

You know the drill, vote for the best group of players in each trade. Use the form near the bottom of this page to submit your trades to be voted on. Make your opinion known…

This one came in a 16 team league with 28 man rosters and 15 minor league spots. H2H 6×6:

This one came in from a 12 team dynasty H2H league:

Submitted by The Duke — “NL-only 5×5 roto auction league. Can keep each player at price for three years, can buy more years at $5 per year. I sold off a bevy of very good prospects last year chasing the eventual winner. Now trading away expensive assets to restock for next year. One of the prospects I unloaded last year was Kris Bryant. Now I am getting him back at a steep price. I know it is a ton to give up, but does the $88 savings make it a decent trade? I had to hound the Bryan owner to get this done”:

12 team NL-only league with 37 man rosters. That’s a deep league! Prices increase $2 per year for players in the majors. Rebuilder is playing to contend in 2017 or 2018. 2017 prices would be Ross $14, Montero $6, and Corbin $7:

    12-team OBP league, traded Donaldson (and Lohse, Tyrell Jenkins, and Brandon Phillips, they would have been dropped so I threw them in), for Leonys Martin, Gio Gonzalez, Evan Longoria, and Bradley Zimmer.
