This is a question geared for leagues that are competitive & last year-to-year, and specifically for teams that become mathematically eliminated prior to the trading deadline.

Now, in the case of dynasty & keeper leagues, I think trading for future picks becomes obvious, because the losing team can throw massive value to a team simply to secure a REALLY nice dynasty player or keeper for the following season(s).

However, what about other formats? Do people have experience trading away a top RB, WR, QB, or TE for a certain round draft pick, or auction dollars for the following season?

To make sure this doesn't devolve into A/C, I am going to ask the question in terms of a 10-12 team league (which most of us are in), and the trade in question involves an elite player in each respective position.

Specifically, what round draft pick(s) in a standard snake draft, and how much of a $200 auction seem legitimate for the following types of players?

an elite RB (top 5-6)
a top RB (7-12)
an elite WR (top 5-6)
a top WR (7-12)
an elite QB (top 5-6)
an elite TE (top 5-6)

I view these as realistic tiers by position in which
A.) a playoff team would certainly receive improvement at and
B.) would be willing to trade a future consideration of substance for.
12 team 0.5 PPR, auction, 3 keepers (traded away; received in trade)
QB: Matt Ryan ($3), Tom Brady ($6)
RB: Ellington ($20), Vereen ($9), Doug Martin, R. Jennings ($20), Gerhart ($11), Pierre Thomas ($7)
WR: Antonio Brown ($41), Roddy White ($19), M. Floyd ($12), Cruz ($22), Torrey Smith ($9), Justin Hunter ($1)
TE: Jordan Cameron ($7), Zach Ertz

8 team 0.5 PPR, snake
QB: Peyton Manning (8th), Jay Cutler (88th)
RB: Bernard (19th), Ellington (35th), Vereen (56th), Jennings (57th), Thomas (72nd)
WR: AJ Green (14th), Antonio Brown (25th), Roddy White (41st), Josh Gordon (105th), B. Cooks, J. Hunter
TE: Zach Ertz (104th)

12 team 0.5 PPR, snake (traded away; received in trade)
QB: Tom Brady (89th), Jay Cutler (113th)
RB: Gio Bernard (17th), Ellington (32nd), Vereen, Pierre Thomas (80th), Lacy (8th)

OK, I'll try and offer my thoughts, though I am not experienced here. For an elite WR or RB (top 5 for each position), I would be asking for a mid-round pick in snake formats (5-8) and around 7-10% of an auction budget (e.g., 15$ in a $200 auction).

The only QBs and TEs I see as really receiving top value right now would be guys like Brees, Manning, Jimmy Graham, and Julius Thomas, and maybe mid-round value would be reasonable here as well, right?

As for RB1 or WR1 (e.g., top 10-12 in these positions), my range would extend down to round 10 at most (for like a 10-12 value guy at his position), and maybe $8-10 auction dollars in the next years draft.

Yes, I'm talking about redraft formats. Sorry for the confusion. As an example, you are eliminated from playoffs this year in a redraft league and are trading your guy(s) away for either future round picks (snake draft) or a portion of the other team's budget (auction $$'s).

You shouldn't be able to trade for future picks/ money in redraft.

And why shouldn't one be able to? Do you mean in terms of logistics (i.e., ESPN or yahoo league settings won't allow trading players for future year draft picks)? Or do you mean shouldn't, as in you personally do not support the idea of doing this?
In a competitive, stable league, I fail to see why this would be bad. Teams making a title run may sacrifice drafting ability the following year in order to improve their title run this year, whereas teams almost out of contention may decide to pack it in and build for next year. I like the concept of it . . .

It's because it makes teams that are out of the playoffs all the incentive to unload their teams to contenders for future earnings since they don't have to keep any of them for next year. This makes the playoffs more of a contest on who gives up the most next year.

In keeper or dynastly leagues at least the playoff team are likely keeping any top players they're giving up future picks/money for and the non-playoff teams aren't going to cheaply give up stud players they plan on keeping.
