The Trade Analyzer compares the projected points for the remainder of the season going out vs. coming in. This tool works best when doing even trades 1-for-1, 2-for-2 etc.
Awesome website! I’m in 7 leagues (1st place in 3 of them) and am ALWAYS looking for that edge through stats and i have to say that I love the fantasy football tools. You have a great life Mark, you trade and run a ff site, that to me is the American Dream.
Thanks man. I guess you got the bug after that office league lol. I am glad you like the Tools, let me know if you have any suggestions for next season.
Bug? Mark it’s like an obsession. It’s just like trading..sell high, buy low n finding “gems” before anyone knows their name.
Just yesterday I was telling my wife that Matthew Berry (ESPN Fantasy) has the best job in the world! I honestly don’t know how you find the time, given that you trade, but you’ve done a great job Mark.
One of the few recommendations is being able to adjust the the analyzer based on specific scoring settings for a league, e.g PPR & non PPR.
yea this is what I need and all but my league has specific scoring so not sure this would help me at all
The calculator says I shouldn’t trade demarco murray and antonio brown for ray rice because I lose 16 points and should decline the trade. Problem with this is ray rice is projected for 185 and murray and brown projected for 201 combined. That makes it a trade that would be great for me because Rice will score almost as many points as it takes 2 players to achieve. Seems to be a flaw in the system.
Brian – Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I haven’t been able to re-create that issue so it should be all set.
Just tried it again with same results. Thanks for looking into it.
Brian I just entered Demarco Murray and Antonio Brown on the left and Ray Rice on the right and because Murray and Brown had more projected points, it said to decline the trade (180 vs 161). Make sure you are putting your players in the left box and the player you are receiving in the right box.
Brian…Clearly the tool is set up to tell you to accept if point total is higher and decline if it is lower. Even if the difference is only -1 pt it will tell you to decline.
As it says above….
“Remember this is a tool that assumes you are starting everyone involved. If you have Tom Brady and you are trading away Carson Palmer, the Trade Analyzer does not know that you have Brady and may give you results you didn’t expect. Use this as a tool, not an end-all-decision-maker.”
You have to use your own common sense to use the information for your team. Its just giving you an idea of what you are giving up and what you are potentially getting.
In your scenario, since you are giving up 2 (RB & WR) and getting 1 (RB). It would make sense to make the trade despite losing pts if you had someone to start in place of the WR you are giving up. My guess is Brown is a situational play for you and you have some depth at WR, so this trade would probably leave you with 2 good RB’s and 3 startable WR’s. In that case, Accept! However, If it leaves you with 2 good RB’s and only 2 Startable WR’s and noone to use for your Flex, you may want to think a little bit about accepting. Depth and Consistancy out way having one Stud.
With all of that being said, I think offloading a injury concern RB on a struggling offense with a WR 2/3 for a fantasy stud RB1 is probably a no brainer for you
you trade analyzer is not updated. How can it project that Jordy Nelson would only have 11 points for the season in 2012. He has had a ton of points already this year. You need to update your stuff
Thanks Bill Johnson, I had an error updating the sheets last time. Should be all set now.
i cant seem to access the trade tool. should i make this trade:
jordy nelson and darren sproles for reggie bush?
i would be receiving bush…
Chesse- We’ll update FFPrep tomorrow with all of the Week 5 points. At this point, it would depend on your running back situation. If you are relying on Darren Sproles as your #1, I wouldn’t make the trade.
so Jordan reed is a FA and I have delanie walker, should I keep walker or give him up for reed?
I like Reed’s upside. The concern is obviously his injury history. I’d still take a chance on Reed over Walker.
Branden Oliver has no projected points. Probably need to fix that
I lost foles and was offered Sanchez for Jimmy Graham….We start 2 Qb’s so having quality Qb’s is big…I still have Kap and Mettenberger… Was also offered Stafford and Witten for Graham and K. Allen….WE dont play H2H its total team points for the entire year…PPR league as well…..Start WR/TE together…
I don’t like either of those trades. Graham is too valuable to trade away for lower end QB2s. Is there anything else available on the wire? Is Mallett available? Otherwise, could you move Keenan Allen for someone like Alex Smith or Eli Manning? Good luck
Julius Thomas only projected to get 69 points, yet Reggie Bush 157? I don’t think so.
Thanks for that Mike, it should be fixed.
Hey your Trade Analyzer is saying “This item won’t load right now” was working fine yesterday…..
All set. Thanks for letting me know
