ok, so if you can help me out with a little advice on this, i will answer your question if you leave your link.
a roommate and i just signed up for this crazy league on saturday morning while we were watching some college football.
it's got all sorts of point categories on top of the usual ones, like PPR, passing attempts/completions/incompletions. 10/25 for the yardage, and the points rewarded for play made on defense by IDP's (which we have 3 starting) are very high... ie: int=6pts, td=12pts.
there are 8 teams,head-to-head, ther are only 5 bench spots, so ther are plenty of guys on the wire.
but here's the catch: every week, the 4 winners of each matchup gets to propose a 1-for-1 trade to the loser of their matchup that the loser must accept so long as the players involved are within 300 spots of each other on the yahoo actual rankings.
what i'm looking for is a little advice on how to go about those trades. this week, my team kicked booty b/c i drafted guys who tradtionally do well in PPR leagues, and i came out withthe highest score of the week. i see a few different options in what to do here.
1. do i offer the other owner trade that involves the best player on his team for the worst player i can squeeze under the limit?
2. i could offere him a deal that could possibly be a little more devastating to his team with the intent of crippling him from the beginning? say, for instance, he's only carrying one quarterback like either peyton or palmer, or one guy only has vick, that would force him to the waiver wire to begin playing the matchup game each week. crule? i know, but we all want to win here, right?
3. do i go for the guy who has the best matchup for the next week? since each loss is such ahuge blow for you team, one loss could be the result of many more to come if you team keeps getting picked at like a fruit tree. what i'm saying is...play for the short term, and dump my rook's like DeAngelo and addai for guys who will produce in week 4.
i know it's alot, but any advice is greatly appreciated. i'm not too sure how this league will shake out... but i thought it looked interesting, so i gave it a whirl.
here's my team:
RB: Westbrook, W.Parker
WR: R.Wayne, T.J. housh
WR/RB flex: A.Green, C.Taylor
Def: Buffalo, Carolina
D: Z.Thomas, A.Wilson, W.Witherspoon
Bench: branch, addai, deangelo, S.moss, bledsoe
