Figured I'd get us started with a new thread for a new fantasy year!
Just completed the following trade:
Gave: Treadwell, Duke 2017 2.11
Received: Perriman, 2017 2.01
Not at all comfortable with Treadwells comps after his disastrous rookie year. Thought I'd strike & sell while he still had some solid value. Interested in everyones thoughts. Thanks!

Just received an offer that I thought was interesting, and could use an opinion on it.
Give: Keenan, Michael Floyd
Receive: Jordan Howard, Crowder, 3.06
I have the 1.01 in our rookie draft, but as of now, the best RB on my team is Tevin Coleman..

If you gave up on Keenan, who are your other receivers? Obviously you'd be getting Crowder in return, but who else do you have on your squad?

I'll still have core pieces (Evans, Cooper) and promising 2nd yr guys (M. Thomas, Coleman) along with some other guys (Rishard Matt, Tyrell, Tyreek, Carroo, Pharoh Cooper)
As for your trade, I like your side quite a bit. The fact that Treadwell could barely get on the field with Diggs being on/off injured the whole season is not great to see. With Steve Smith retiring, it's hard not to envision the coaching staff giving Perriman the opportunity to become the WR1 for the team. I also think the browns extend Crowell later on in the offseason.

I would do that trade. If your only RBs next year are Tevin and whoever you pick at 1.01 (I assume Fournette but maybe you like Cook) it makes you really reliant on that rookie RB to score big next year.

What're your thoughts on these offers I received?
Give - 1.06
Receive - 1.10 and Pick One (Gio, Ameer, Doug Martin, Theo)
Give - Sammy Watkins
Receive - 1.10 and Pick Two (Gio, Ameer, Martin, Theo)
Give - Davante Adams
Receive - 1.10 and Pick One (Gio, Ameer, Martin or Theo)
Give - Eifert
Receive - 1.10
I don't know which one I like or if any I would want to do.... I am weak at RB but own 1.01 and 1.06 right now.

I'd personally hold the picks until the draft is nearer. They always seem to appreciate in value once the draft is imminent or when the pick is on the clock.
As far as the offers themselves, I'd hang on to Watkins & Adams personally. Adams just broke out in a massive way, and if anything could garner even more MS next year. Watkins has been hurt and is undervalued right now, but he's already turned in a top 20 WR season on only 93 targets. I'd hold him as well personally.

Yeah so the two big trades I have made in the last couple of days, let me know your thoughts.
Traded away my 2018 1st and 2017 3rd for 2017 Pick 1.06.
Traded away Tyler Eifert for 2017 Pick 1.10 and 2017 3.04
So that gives me 1.01, 1.06, 1.10 and 2.01 in a ten team league!
Hoping to make a splash this year in the draft with four top 15 picks!
Was able to draft Coleman, Fuller and Prosise last year with the help of Rotoviz Research so hopefully I am just as successful this year!

I just sent Tyler Boyd, 2.04 and a 2018 2nd away for Jordan Matthews.
I love Boyd, but he won't be the #1 option on his team for the foreseeable future (if ever). Something to note is that my rookie draft is actually before the NFL draft, so I typically trade away my 2nd and 3rd round picks (which are even more of a crapshoot than normal) and load up on 4th and 5th rounders.

Interesting that you guys have your draft before the NFL draft. How much earlier is your rookie draft vs the NFL draft?
#11 By: Cameron James, January 16th, 2017 16:58
Last year we did it on April 17th, so about a week and a half before the NFL Draft. We think it's a fun way to switch things up and make it so that we have to study a bit more on rookies rather than completely rely on the NFL draft to determine who to pick. It makes things interesting.
Edit: Here's the first three rounds of our draft from last year.
