Best Trade Timing You've Shown This Season

Postby Challie » Wed Dec 08, 2004 7:33 pm

Not talking about WW pickups, just trades.

My league doesn't trade that much. But I dealt A-Train after his one good week for Crumpler right before he went on a tear.

Let's hear of some well-timed trades on your part.
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying.

lotta luck involved....but an easy choice to make as far as my best trade of the year...

prior to week 5 (philly had bye that week) ...I traded Randy Moss and Westbrook (both healthy at that time)....for the rights to Shaun Alexander, Lelie and Morton

mind you ...that that particular owner will likely never trade with me again for a few years

I traded Q. Griffen and Dom Davis to get Shaun Alexander when he was hurt. Best move I have ever made!

I am in a keeper league (yr 9).

I had kept Ricky before he retired... and couldn't go back to my roster to keep another player (Chad Johnson).

So I drafted and traded around needing to replace Ricky's previous production (Clinton Portis... although until this past week, his has been questionable).

Anyway... I kept Ricky all yr hoping for an 05' return... so I could deal him for a draft pick(s). Finally right before out deadline, someone jumped on him by dealing him to me for a 2005 1st Rd pick. In light of the recent revelation about him not returning... I got a 1st Rd pick for squat.

We keep 6 players from year to year... so the pick isn't overly valuable. But it will help to get a nice # 3 RB or # 2 WR. Especially coming to me for free ! ;-D

Yea i had one that went the other way. During Jamal Lewis's suspension i traded B. Westbrook (1 td at that point) to get Lewis, cuz the guy who had Lewis was desperate for a RB. It looked like a steal at the time especailly considering that was the week when B. Westbrook banged up his ribs. Well needless to say the past 2 weeks westbrook has scored 5 td's and lewis has been hurt....I guess im getting what i deserve though for trying to rip the lewis owner off.

I made the best trade ever in the history of FF this season. The saturday before the week 11 games in which Jamal Lewis got hurt and Marvin broke out, I traded:

Jamal Lewis and Moulds for Marvin, Muhammad, and Pittman.

Since week 11, with week 11 numbers included, the players I received compared to the ones I sent have scored a combined 13 touchdowns to only 1. Eh....not bad. :-D :-D

Right before Big Ben became the starter and Ward was putting up number one stats I traded him and Penny for McNabb and McGahee...in a league in which QBs get 1 pt/10 yards and 6 pt TDs. I'm pretty happy. ;-)
