Trade Draft picks to move up???

Postby cfrat24 » Mon Mar 14, 2011 9:12 am

Im in a 12 team 5x5 roto draft (no keepers).

Currently I pick 10th in the draft, and have been offered to move to the 6th spot, basically just swapping first and 2nd rd picks.

Theres a chance Tulowitzky might be there at 6....should I trade up to get him if he is there and have the 6th and 19th pick or stay at 10 and have the 10th and 15th pick.


any thoughts on trading up would be appreciated, WHIR.....thanks

6th - Tulo (Avg Draft position 9)
19th - A-Rod, Tex, Zimm (19-21 ADP)

vs

10th - Votto or Cargo (10th and 11th ADP)
15th - Felix, Holliday, Hamilton


Based on who you can expect to be there using ESPN's ADP, I would prefer 6th and 19th. You get Tulo, Zimmerman (my pref), then grab a McCutchen, Upton or Dunn coming back.

Thanks for helping with mine.

If you trade up, you can capitalize on position scarcity as long as tulo is there, what if he isn't. Tell him you will make the trade only if he is there, even if he isn't, I think you will be just fine. Even if Tulo isn't there, then that means Albert, Hanley, Braun, Longoria (all doubtful) could be there.

Yeah, im only making this deal to move up if TULO is there....if not I don't think its worth moving up.
