Traded a player for a future pick. added teams value+-?

Postby cardoza707 » Sat Aug 10, 2013 3:08 am

Hello thank you for your help. So last year, one person (team A) traded WR, (Roddy white) for a 2013-14 fourth round draft pick to team B. This was around week 6 and they both meet up against each other in the championship and team A, with roddy won by 2 points. Roddy scored 31 that game. Since then we have added 4 new teams it went from a puny 6 team league to a nice 10 team league. So the qestion is how does that affect the trade? Does the value of the trade increase for team B receiving the pick does he have a better chance of getting ahead of the competition or does it decrease the value? If thats the case we don't care. Im starting to think trading future draft pick is a bad idea.
We just want the new teams to have a fair chance at winning it all.

Please help

It definitely hurt the value of the trade by adding teams for the guy who got the pick. In a six team league you're picking in the 19-24 range, in a ten team league you're picking in the 30-40 range. I don't really know a good solution to change that.

When I ran a keeper league trades of draft picks were limited to a couple of weeks before the draft and this seemed to work out well. Might be an idea for your league.
