I'm not really sure. It's very early to swing a trade that you lose so much value in. I have Latos ranked two full rounds above Markakis in your league. If you're really concerned enough about Latos that you don't think he's 50/50 to come over then I'd probably do the deal. If I thought Latos was 50/50 to turn it around I'd hold on him a bit longer.

I wouldn't do it for the reasons previously mentioned. If I were you, I would try to trade Freeman, as you are already loaded at 1st base with Pujols and Fielder in your utility spots and Belt basically waiting on Bochy to wake up and play him every day. In a 16 teamer, Freeman has value. I would offer him around and see what you can get for him. Look at players that have started slow but should produce, like Shin-soon Choo or Alex Gordon and see if their owners are getting frustrated.

This. I'm holding Latos a bit longer. If I had him he would be reserved until I see something though.

Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

Markakis sucks. No need to sell low on a better player to acquire NMak.
