Trading First and Second Round Picks

Postby hachiroku86 » Fri Aug 19, 2011 3:44 pm

12 team non-ppr

I would be trading my 3 and 22 spots for their 7 and 18 spots.

I am 99% certain Aaron Rodgers will be picked in the top 6. Therefore, I figure I can land a pretty solid RB1 at the 7 spot.

What do you guys think?

Thanks in advance!

I wouldn't do it. At 3 you're guaranteed to get one of the top three backs (AP, CJ, or Foster). Then with you're 22nd pick you can take a QB if thats what you're trying to do. Out of the top 6 QB's I would be happy with any one of them and I would bet one of them will be available at 22.

Vick
Rodgers
Brady
Brees
Peyton
Rivers

*in no particular order for the QB's, any one of those guys could finish #1 in my opinion

Agree with the above. The top 3 or 4 RB's are a cut above. The difference between the top 5 or 6 QB's isn't that great.

For the record, the word in cheeseland is that Rodgers hasn't had a great camp.

Thank you for the insight. My main reason for considering this trade is to put myself in a better position for the 2nd round. I was actually looking more at the WR position there since a lot of the mock drafts I've been reviewing have showed a lot of top WR's going in the 2nd round.

I still think there will be a solid WR for you at 22 that you'll be happy with. WR's seem to be plentiful this year but I would be much happier with AP, CJ, or Foster than any of the other RB's. (Not saying that MJD, Rice, and Charles aren't good but I do think they're a tier below the top 3)

I'd stand pat.
12-team PPR, start 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1TE, 1 flex (RB/WR/TE), 1D/ST
Unlimited keepers, but more than 6 cost draft picks, starting w 1st Rnd

Keepers- Rodgers, RJennings, Fitzgerald, Hilton, Pitta
and one of Wallce or CJ1K
