Talk about BAD trade/s you made this season.

You'll all be hard pressed to beat this one.

I traded Ladanian Tomlinson, Steve Smith and Willie Parker

to receive

Edgerrin James and Terrell Owens

The very next week Tomlinson and Smith each had 3 touchdowns.

And to think, I made the trade so I could finally have a "stud" receiver. That worked out real well for me.

So bad I posted it twice, to save you from doing a double take. Sorry.

I'm a bit of a compulsive trader. To me that's what makes FF fun, "playing the GM".

In a 14 team league, I drafted a great squad, in a league that starts 4/5 WRs and 2 RBs:

I drafted Deuce/JJ/Caddy

WRs: SSmith/Fitz were my top 2.


I then traded SSMith for DJax and DFoster (Yeeeouch!)

Traded Caddy, pretty much at his peak, for Bruce & JJ "worthless" Arrington (who I later sent packing for Givens)

Then I traded Bruce (the day after turf toe---with the disclaimer) and Fitzgerald for Joe Horn---a day before Horn surprisingly goes on injured list, for next MONTH!


Thankfully, I've also had my share of great deals, but it pains me to know that I let Smith and Fitz go! :~(
I hate LJ Smith!

Drafted Mike Anderson and Thomas Jones very late in the draft. Someone else drafted Tatum Bell right out from underneath me. Before the season started, he offered Bell for Jones, straight up. I accepted thinking I cuff Anderson and get the starter in Denver, and Orton in Chicago is going to kill Jones, and got burned. Then I trade Bell away for Darrell Jackson, just when Bell got benched for Anderson. Now Bell is rocking and D-Jax is on the bench with a knee. I knew I should have stayed away from the Denver RB's.

In week 5 I traded Larry Johnson and Rod Smith for Ahman Green and Tony Gonzalez. I had LT and Kevin Jones with Mike Anderson as a solid backup, I figured I'd take a flyer on a buy low with Ahman and needed a TE so I got Tony in as well. One Ahman injury and one Priest injury later I'm regretting it :,-(

around week 4 I traded Ward for Jamal Lewis. At the time I had S Smith, TO and Ward at WR and Deuce and KJ at RB. My RB's were kinda iffy so I thought I could trade for a 1st round pick who was just a little rusty and needed his FB back in the game.

I wonder who else I could have gotten for Ward? :-o He offered me Portis but I countered with Lewis :-t
