Trader’s Corner: Impact is Imminent
This week saw a lot of elite talent change hands in our readers’ dynasty leagues. Apparently this is a good time of year to go after some 1st-round studs. May this be a valuable reminder that if you want to add top-tier talent to your team in a dynasty league you must trade for it. You can’t jumpstart your dynasty team in the draft or by picking up players off the waiver wire. Star players are not available in dynasty league drafts. Prospect draft picks take forever to pay off and are extremely risky. You won’t find much help on the waiver wire either. To win a dynasty league you need multiple superstar players. The only way to gather those players is via trade. One thing all top fantasy team owners have in common is that they make a lot of trades. If you want to win you need to do some wheelin’ and dealin’.
Almost all of this week’s trades involved premium players that will make a big impact on any fantasy league. These are the guys you want. Many of these trades were made between rebuilding teams and contenders. In dynasty leagues the most common type of trade is a prospects-for-veterans deal. This week we also saw a high number of star-for-star trades. Check them out and place your votes…

Brad Durgin says “20 person Dynasty league with contracts , salaries, and 30 man MiLB roster. Once minor leaguers are promoted to MLB you can keep them for up to 7 years and salary rises each year. 5×5 with OBP and Quality starts. Here’s the trade.”:
Mike sent in two deals for our voting pleasure. “I got two simple trades here for voting consideration in an 18 team roto league that uses QS instead of W’s, XBH’s instead of HR’s and OBP instead of AVG.”:
Those were no brainers, am I right?
