Well you're married. Double 0, is still 0. She thinks she's so sneaky!
Good thing the trade evaluation tool didn't let you get fooled by mathematical misconceptions!

it's not horrible though, hill is a nice dynasty rb and austin could be good too. it's not like maclin is some coveted asset or something. neither is reed.

Hill is an untalented plodder.
Reed is pretty highly coveted

Green and Hill are wastes of rosters spaces. Now mind you it's not like Stevie Johnson isn't bench fodder at this point and who knows if Reed will amount to anything, but Maclin on the other hand would appear to have a great shot this year at a very nice year.

These threads are always great to visit after the year because half the time, these trades end up being fairly decent offers, but everyone thinks their players are gold and their ish don't stink....

Totally agree.

This is like my league every year. I'll offer a trade, usually a player who has some upside but is probably on my bench and I'm trying to up grade another position and guys will be like "ah, that sucks, I don't know who that guy is, you're trying to screw me over!" Fast forward a few weeks and I'm glad they didn't accept that trade because it would have not gone too well for me.

Trades are all about negotiation. When you buy something from someone, do you start at your max offer? No, you start low, they go higher, then perhaps you meet in the middle, or you don't make the deal. Same thing applies with trades. A vast majority of offers maybe aren't ideal, but it's possible to work with the other person to get to where you'd be comfortable in making a trade. That's not to say there aren't bad trade offers, however most offers should probably be open to negotiation.

This is what many don't get in almost any league I've ever played in IMO. You've gotta be willing to negotiate and listen to counter offers and be open to make them yourself.

This is a hypothetical example...

I have 4 good RBs and only 2 good WRs. I have Matt Forte and Calvin Johnson roughly evaluated at equal. I own Matt Forte and someone else owns Calvin Johnson.

I would offer Forte for Calvin Johnson, the megatron owner will always say no and try to get more, like try to get Forte and one of my startable WRs, of course I'm not gonna do that.

Now in another trade offer I know in my head I'm willing to go up to Forte to get Megatron from this guy, but I don't want to have to deal with this guy trying to get my other WRs too. I offer Gio Bernard and a crappy WR. Now the owner comes to this thread and mocks me and trade talks have stalled out.

It's a very difficult proposition making trades...

Reed is one head injury away from being mentally equal to a tomato. Talented until then, good luck figuring out when that is though.
hill we have very little basis to judge either way.... NFL

I agree maclin is worth more then tavon

Green is pretty old for dynasty and in a share at best, but then again Johnson is now not even the go to wr and on a run first team with a QB of ho-hum accuracy.

I think the above is a prime example of why vetoing trades are horrible(except when collusion). Different people have wildly different views on player's value. I also don't think that is a terrible trade at all, ESPECIALLY if it's a dynasty league.
