creating a trade strategy

Postby RIP HB » Fri Aug 29, 2003 8:20 pm

This is my first fantasy season and so far, I've been offered over a dozen trades.
I've posted a ton of messages on these boards asking how this trade looks or that one and you guys have been a ton of help but my question is, what part of a players profile do I need to be paying attention to in order to devise a good trading strategy?
In other words, for example, right now I'm being offered W. Dunn, D. Staley, & H. Ward for E. George and D. Jackson(by the way, whadya think of this trade?).
Now I can look and say that George is better than Dunn but on the other hand Ward is better than Jackson. I would then go with my gut feeling on whether or not I feel this trade is worth doing.
But is there a better way of doing this? In other words, when you guys are offered a trade, do you simply look over a few stats and then go with your gut feeling or do you do something a little more involved before making a decision? If you're offered a player from one position for a player in a different position and you feel they're equally matched, which position do you take priority over? That kind of stuff.

As always post your lineup and ask for advise before trading. Ck. and see what a trade does to your starting lineup cause thats where your points come from. Personaly I'd rather give 3 for 2 or 2 for 1 then get. Usually you can get a stud by trading like that and there's always someone else on waivers I'd like to grab but can't, lineup full.
