Draft Pick Trading

Postby Zach F. » Wed Mar 06, 2013 8:02 pm

What is fair value for my first round pick? Another manager wants to trade for my first round pick, and I'm willing. Is asking for his 2nd and 3rd round picks too much?

It's a 12 team h2h standard 5x5 non-keeper league.

We don't have the draft order yet, we're still waiting on some friends to join. But we can do some scenarios.

(1) I have the 1st overall pick and he has the 2nd overall pick. He would get picks 1 and 2 overall with me getting picks 23 24 25 and 26 overall.

(2) I have pick 5 and he has pick 6, so he gets the 5th and 6th overall picks and I get picks 19 20 29 and 30.

(3) I have pick 1 and he has pick 12 so he gets picks 1 and 12 overall and I get picks 13 24 25 and 36

(4) I have pick 6 and he has pick 1 so he gets picks picks 1 and 6 overall and i get picks 19 24 25 and 30

If i have pick 11 and he has 12 he wouldn't do it obviously because he would essentially be trading his 3rd round pick to move his 2nd round pick up two picks.

I really like the idea of having 4 picks in the 2nd and 3rd rounds, but would it be fair to him or am I asking for too much? If you think i'm asking for too much do you think maybe try for his 3rd and 4th round picks instead?

If u trade ur 1 in any of those scenario u will have a hard time winning as u will have a good depth but will miss out on a lot of elite talent

I would only do that if he wanted to throw in a 5th or 6th round pick too. So it would have to be like your 1st round for his 2/3 and 6th round picks.

So lets just pick one and say that was the case.. you have 5 he has 6

So regular you would have:
5
19
28
42

After you would have
18
19
28
29
42

So lets just put the projected bats at that spot (just to keep it simple).. would you rather have

Matt Kemp/ Adrian Beltre / Edwin Encarnacion / Ryan Zimmerman
vs
Evan Longo / Adrian Beltre / Edwin Encarnacion / Adam Jones / Ryan Zimmerman
(lets imagine that is who you wanted to draft.. and you have spots for all the 3bs lol)

So basically you would be trading Matt Kemp for Longo and Adam Jones

-edit-
I guess you should wait and see what the picks end up being before you make that decision .. and take a look at it and do what I did and see if you feel like those 2 players outrank that top 12 guy.
