I'm in a relatively standard performance scoring league with 12 teams. We can keep 2 players from year to year. Our draft is 18 rounds and is serpentine. I draft in the #9 slot (odd rounds) and #4 slot (even rounds).
My only keeper is Brandon Marshall who costs me a 7th rounder.
Another team has both Adrian Peterson and Steve Slaton, and drafts in the #6 position.
The 1.6 pick will actually be the 5th pick of the draft, and there are 5 top/2nd tier RBs available to be drafted:
(MJD, AP, Turner, Forte, Barber, Deangelo, Ryan Grant, Chris Johnson are all keepers).
I've been offered to swap first round picks (i.e. trade up from #9 pick to the #6 pick in the first round) in exchange for my 10th round pick. What do you think?
Alternatively, I've been offered to swap first round picks, swap my 2nd rounder for his 3rd rounder (a difference of 7 actual picks due to keepers), and swap 4th rounders (swap 4.4 for 4.7). In this second scenario, I don't lose any picks but I give up a total of 10 spots in early rounds in exchange for gaining the right to one of those 5 top RBs in round 1. Is that better, worse, or the same?
thanks for any advice!
