The market for Crawford must be very soft, I think all those offers are reasonable, people just don't want to dilute top talent for volume, it's a common issue in fantasy.

Thanks, I understand the dilute argument, most the teams, IMO, could benefit from some depth. Of course that's my opinion, just wanted to be sure I had close value

I think the offers are fine, I see the Fowler offer as a significant overpay. Crawford + about the same value (R Betancourt) was dealt in our league yesterday for Felix Hernandez. Dumb trade by the Hernandez owner IMO but there is heavy trade activity in the league each year and the new Felix owner will probably be move him again.

You are fortunate the other guy has not taken you up on the Heyward offer. Withdraw that deal asap before he changes his mind and decides to cut bait on him.

You are asking too much with the Choo offer imo.

The thing that's not being factored in is when you're making a 3 for 1 deal the other guy is giving up a good player (very likely the best player in the deal) AND has to drop 2 guys off his current roster to make it work, because of that I'm not surprised these deals were rejected.

The value you show us might be fair but factor in losing a couple roster players obviously isn't worth it.

Basically it's quality > quantity

In larger leagues these would be accepted. In smaller 1's no 1 wants to give up a star for many parts. Of course, in larger leagues you'd have a tougher time parting with all 3 guys from your roster.Find a team badly in need of saves and you might get your partner

So I ended up getting a taker:

I gave C. Crawford, Mujica, Jansen
I got A. Jackson

What do you all think? I am punting saves so now I have two streaming spots for relievers and hitters, and while Jansen is good there are other RP that can give me similar numbers.

I don't really see Jackson as a huge plus, but not as much of an injury risk though maybe and probably more upside right?
