Yesterday I posted part 1 of this 2-part article on The Art of Fantasy Trades, where we talked about how to communicate and what to say when you do. We talked about how to address the question everyone asks, “What’s in it for me?” in order to communicate more effectively. Well Today I want to talk to you about The Negotiation part of the trade as well as some trade etiquette.
“Hey can we talk about a trade….” This can be the hardest thing for a fantasy player to do properly, to broker a trade with another player successfully. Sure, It’s easy to study mock drafts and ADP before drafting for your league, or to watch games and find people to add to your team, but when you look up a player and realize he is already owned by another player, that can be a very defeating feeling. Therefore, what I want to do is show you an easy and convenient way to trade that will help you save time and make more money in your leagues.
Fantasy owners potentially face a peculiar situation when it comes to the league’s best Tight End. As Jimmy Graham fights for an extra 5 million in pay, we have to figure out what to do with him if he wins his grievance hearing on June 17-18. How do we value WR Jimmy Graham, and where do we pick him? My take is that Jimmy Graham should still easily be a mid 2nd round pick and would be a great 3rd round value based on his elite talent and consistency.
This week Ryan, Steven and Warren talk to you about the current news and notes about fantasy baseball, reccomend two closers and talk about George Springer. Please send questions to email@example.com
Look, we’re all trying to win our leagues. As a fantasy owner, you’ve got a job to do, too. Where you’re going, some players can’t follow. What you’ve got to do, some players can’t be any part of. You need to look at your roster and say “I took a risk, and this guy can’t hack it”. Granted, the fantasy baseball idea of ‘sunk cost’ can seem to be as agonizing as a GM’s decision…but it doesn’t have to be that way. I’m here to tell you that it’s ok to bail on a guy. It’s ok to take that ‘hot pick’ you took in the draft and throw him back on the wire It’s ok, it’s not your fault. Continue reading It’s Not Me, It’s You: When To Cut Your Draft Picks
Matt Adams burst at the seams with potential after a strong showing in his ‘first cup of coffee and a doughnut’ in the Bigs, slashing .284/.335/.503 in his first 296 at bats. Big Matt Adams showed tremendous pop in that limited time, hitting 17 home runs in 2013, and left fantasy owners salivating at the potential impact. What happened? While his line so far this year is useful, like a veggie stir fry, it lacks the delicious meat of the power and RBI production experts expected.
This begs the question, who is Matt Lunchbox Adams? Is he the potential 30 home run threat that fantasy owners extrapolated from last years stats? Or is he the guy we have seen so far this year who is hitting .330 with 3 home runs and 18 RBIs? Read on to see my take and how to address the Lurch Adams problem on your line up.
