Draft Picks for McCoy?? McFadden as a Keeper?

Postby manicottimafioso » Sat Jul 23, 2011 7:10 pm

I'm in a 10-team, PPR-league with standard scoring with 3 keepers (no more than one player at any position can be kept). If the season started tomorrow, I'd keep Tony Romo, LeSean McCoy and Greg Jennings. Not a bad start.

However, our draft is in 2 weeks and another owner is trying to get McCoy from me. I could let McCoy go if the price is right and keep Darren McFadden as my keeper RB. He has the 8th overall pick in a snake draft with me having the 9th overall pick. I would like to move up in the early rounds to grab as many 2nd tier players as possible. Here is what he is offering me right now:

I get:
- 1st round pick (#8)
- 2nd round pick (#13)
- 3rd round pick (#28)

He gets:
- 1st round pick (#9)
- 2nd round pick (#12)
- 5th round pick (#49)
- LeSean McCoy

Please give me your thoughts and any trade re-submit ideas!!

Even though you are essentially trading a player you can't keep...you are giving McCoy away to move up 2 rounds in the draft. Not nearly enough.

I'd shoot back a counter with you not giving back so many picks.

I would take that trade. I would try and counter first and see if you could give up less picks

I am definitely countering with better picks for me; however, I am a little concerned about McFadden as my keeper. He could be a beast if he stays healthy.

I guess if I get enough picks early in the draft (late 1st, early 2nd rounds), I could bolster my RB corps with two of the following: Gore, Forte, Hillis, Turner, S-Jax, Shonn Greene, Mathews and such.

Thoughts?

I agree that this trade doesn't work. You should counter with McFadden instead of McCoy for that. McCoy has special upside and should be kept for all but a sweetheart deal. If he wants McCoy bad enough, make it work for you or it simply doesn't make sense.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

I rejected his trade and he countered with the following:

I get:
- 1st round pick (#8)
- 4th round pick (#33)

I give:
- LeSean McCoy
- 3rd round pick (#29)
- 5th round pick (#49)

If I accept this trade, I will have:
- Tony Romo (QB keeper)
- Darren McFadden (RB keeper)
- Greg Jennings (WR keeper)
- #8 overall pick - draft best RB/WR available
- #9 overall pick - draft best RB/WR available
- #12 overall pick - draft best RB/WR available

If I decline, I will keep Romo, McCoy & Jennings and try to deal McFadden for probably much less early round draft pick movement.

Counter with McCoy for his 1st and 4th.

McCoy is a top 6 RB...no doubt worth what this guy is going to pick with a 1st and a 4th after 3 keepers for each team.

If he declines then just keep McCoy and deal DMC for a pick or two.
