Trading 1st Overall Pick
Hypothetically what would you give up to trade up for the number 1 pick from the back half of first. Obviously would have to include a swap of 1st at minimum.

re: Trading 1st Overall Pick
Such a loaded question.......


I’ve seen people swap draft positions completely before the drafts, but never just one individual pick..

Pretty cool wrinkle IMO





If I had the first overall pick, I would probably structure a deal like this (somewhat)

I give you:
1st overall pick
Last two picks that I own


You give me:
Your first overall pick (say, 8 OVR)
Your third round pick
Your fourth round pick

re: Trading 1st Overall Pick
Thats about what I thought was fair too. I see a lot more value in the extra 3 and 4/5 rather than just the number 1 overall pick. I think a number one pick can win you some games but a more complete roster is what wins leagues

re: Trading 1st Overall Pick
In a 10 team league, the guy trading away the #1 pick gets almost double value.

To trade my #8 for #1, I'd offer a 6th and an 8th. Guy trading back still gets 25% more value.

I like this site. LINK

re: Trading 1st Overall Pick
Hangover’s deal isn’t fair at all and no one will take that. He wasn’t trying to make a fair deal. You’re gonna have to give the other person better value

re: Trading 1st Overall Pick
I know that the numbers aren’t fair, but is that the correct way to construct a draft pick trade? I’ve never done it before

Yea you just have to have the same number of picks for each person, unless you’re in a dynasty league

re: Trading 1st Overall Pick
There is no set template in a redraft

Like real drafts year to year it changes

This year there is no clear cut no.1 player

Saquon is other world as an individual but the Giants are trash. You can legit argue in any PPR redraft that CMac and Kamara are no.1 worthy this year

You can leverage that to drop the asking price IMO vs years where there is a clear cut no.1 and obvious drop off as far as perception goes

If I was moving just from 8 to 1 this year and not swapping entire drafts(should be free if you do that in a snake league)

If I was moving up from 8 to 1...8 is still gonna be a stud. A legit top 5 RB or top 3 WR

I would throw in 1 very favorable draft slide.

Ex. No.1 overall + 9th rounder for no.8 overall + 6th rounder

Any owner worth anything can draft a starting caliber player in round 6. Round 9 is boom/bust.

I wouldn't do it but this to me is about where market value should be this year.
