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
Brady has a zero still? He’s back, fix it.
The Brady news happened after our most recent rankings. This was updated in the refresh today. Thanks
I’m surprised to see T.Y. Hilton ranked well below Jeremy Maclin. That’s a pretty unpopular opinion. Emmanuel Sanders is ranked pretty low as well. Could you explain your reasoning a bit there? Thanks!
They are both WR2s to Johnson and Thomas vs. Maclin being a WR1. I like Sanders a lot, and see T.Y. and Maclin as equals. Hope this helps and thanks for your input.
Is trading Tannehill, Maclin and Forsett for Dez Bryant, Winston and McCoy worth it? I know Dez is injured right now but has upside for the playoff stretch. I play in a 10-team standard scoring league.
Hi Luke. I like the trade. If you have another QB, then I love the trade. If this is a keeper / dynasty league then there are other considerations, but on the surface it’s a good trade for you.
Yeah I have Tom Brady and at Running back I also have Adrian Peterson, Abdullah, Coleman and waiting for Arian Foster to come back from injury. I have Brown, Hilton and Terrance Williams until Dez returns. I’m not too sure about McCoy though, do you think his upside is greater than Forsett’s?
I would take McCoy over Forsett. Rex Ryan likes to run the ball and the Bills have a great O-line
Do you think the trade still has a chance of going through if I wait a few weeks or just go for it now?
you can wait it out to see if you get any clarity on Dez. Forsett should have a better week this week.
Sammy Watkins was just dropped onto the waiver wire, is he a consideration for WR2 or should I go with Maclin, John Brown? Or wait to see what T.y. Hilton’s status is for Monday?
If you have room on your bench, I’d pick up Watkins. I wouldn’t drop any of the players mentioned for him though.
FFPrep: What do you think about this trade proposal?
Demarco Murray & Jarvis Landry for Tevin Coleman & Martavis Bryant
I like Murray and Landry more than Bryant and Coleman so I wouldn’t make this trade.
What do you think of A.J. Green and Carlos Hyde for Marshawn Lynch and T.Y. Hilton?
Hi Regor – It’s a fair trade, what are your other options at RB and WR?
Well my RBs are Peterson, Hyde, Yeldon, and Duke Johnson.
My WRs are Mike Evans, Green, Edelman, Quick, Charles Johnson, and Breshad Perriman.
I’d stick with AJ and Hyde. It’s a fair trade, but I like your team
someone offered me DeMarco Murray and Vincent Jackson for Frank Gore and Karlos Williams…
a problem is I have Mike Evans on my roster..
Should I take this offer?
I’d rather a second RB instead of Jackson – are they any options there?
I just ran a trade through the analyzer.
Giving : Maxx Williams – 28 points for rest of season
Getting: Antonio Gates – 14 points for rest of season
It tells me NOT to make the trade.
Could you tell me why you have Gates projected so low?
Hi Robert – I’ll take a look. The projections are based on preseason projections coupled with recent performance. With Gates out, the projection just needs to be adjusted.
Thanks again Robert – this has been fixed.
Call me crazy if talking trades after being 3-0, but I and have had alot of interest in Forte. I feel forte may lose value with other rb’s getting reps for the future on top of the bears always playing from behind. Keep in mind i have Bell and Freeman/Coleman as well. But Absolutely no Wr’s..Golden tate, Adams, and Kendall Wright are my only wide outs.
Does it benefit me enough in return to trade away Matt Forte and Martavus Bryant for Andre Ellington and Demaryus Thomas?
Is Andre Ellington the prefferred piece over C.J. Anderson. According to your analyzer Andre will end with the better year. Most other places I’ve looked has CJ valued higher than ellington.
Should i make the trade? and for whihc RB Ellington or Anderson?
QB: Palmer, RB1; L Bell RB2: Forte Flex: Freeman/Coleman WR1: Tate wr2: Kendall Wright WR3(Bench): D Adams TE!: Reed and Witten…Cardinals Defense. Martavus Bryant, Deangelo williams and Rishard Matthews on Bench.
First of all congratulations on a nice start. I don’t think you should make that trade. I agree that Forte is a risk, but I’d always prefer a good RB to WR. You should be able to pick up some depth at WR in free agency – is agholor available? You may be able to trade Adams and Bryant in a package. Good luck!
I just lost J. Charles in my PPR league. Should I trade Gore and A. Cooper for Eddie Lacy and Brandin Cooks? I’m a little worried about Lacy and Cooks’ production, but I feel like they’ll bounce back. Thoughts?
Hi Brad – I’d make this trade. I like Cooper, but I think you’re right about a bounce back for Lacy and Cooks. I obv like Lacy more than Gore.
Julio Jones and Ingram for Gronk and Edelman????
If you need a TE and are set at RB then yes otherwise no.
I know this sounds crazy but should I trade Forte for Freeman?
No. Forte will be a lot better when Alshon returns.
Alright thanks. I just got an offer where I trade Forte for Lacy. Should I take it?
I have Adrian Peterson, Arian Foster, Justin Forsett and LeSean McCoy as my RB. Should I try and make a trade to get Matt Forte, Marshawn Lynch, or Eddie Lacy? Or should I just keep the running backs? I’m pretty reluctant to get rid of All Day but would any other top running back be worth it?
Hi Luke – If you can trade Forsett, I’d make the trade. Also – how many RBs can you start? Would your team be better off trading Forsett for a top tier WR?
You can start 2 running backs plus the flex and at WR I have Antonio Brown, T.y. Hilton, Jeremy Maclin, and Dez Bryant
I think you can trade Forsett and Maclin or Hilton for a better WR. Your team is stacked though so it’s up to you.
got an offer:
Trading away: Tom Brady, Latavius Murray, and Jeremy Maclin
Receiving: Philip Rivers, Jeremy Hill, Amari Cooper, and Derek Carr.
My RB’s are Jonathon Stewart, Ronnie Hillman, Ryan Matthews, and Latavius Murray.
My Wr’s are Odell Beckham Jr., Julio Jones, Steve Smith Sr., and Jeremy Maclin.
I feel I should decline the trade but see that the schedule gets harder for both Brady and Murray. What do you think?
I would decline this trade. The only player you are getting that I really like is Cooper so if you want to slim it down to Maclin and Stewart or Mathews for Cooper, I’d make that trade.
Is Keenan Allen for Emmanuel Sanders a good trade?
If you’re giving away Keenan then I would say no.
Can’t import Willie snead…
Hi f-dog, sorry for the delay but this has been fixed
I have Matt Ryan and would like to upgrade for final stretch.
Would there be enough of an upgrade from Ryan to Drew Brees to make the following trade?
Matt Ryan and Jeremy Hill
it all depends on the owner you’re trading with. If they are in need of a RB, then I would say you have a good shot of getting this approved.
