Top this if you can:

Traded LeVeon Bell (had just taken him 1.04 in a rookie draft), Lamar Miller and following years 1st (ended up being 1.05 - Brandin Cooks)

Received Trent Richardson

I was going to ride TRich and Martin to at least a few titles over the next decade after their hot rookie season.
This is cringe worthy. :doh:
You may have lost that trade buy you win this thread! ! ! :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:
Oh well then it was all worth it :lol:

Live and learn. If I seem averse to buying RBs at top-dollar in my posts, now you know why.

Thankfully, I made a lot of trades to get several late 1st and early 2nds in 2014, and that has rejuvenated my team and taken me to a couple championships (old league in sig). Still can't beleive I gave up Bell though. I am even a Spartan fan!

my worst trade was this summer when Bell had his issues, i traded him for Moncrief and CJ Anderson
Too many teams and lineup changes to keep track of them all.

My worst was just after the startup draft for our league the year Odell came out - made before that rookie season even started.

Traded away Odell
For Kbenji and Kelce

Not horrific. But BAD. I was all in on Kelce and knew he would break out. Obviously had no clue how great Odell would be.

BUT...
The kicker...

I lost in the finals to the team I traded Odell to by less than 2pts.

I have so many bonehead trades. Here are just a few.

2015: Sent Julio Jones/Derek Carr got Gio & Hyde

2016: Sent Zeke & 1.09 for Kevin White & Jordan Matthews. (Guy got Michael Thomas with 1.09)

Both of these trades were in the same league with the same owner.. smh needless to say I am hesitant to make future trades with him lol
The bell for TRich trade wins the thread but this one wins the "what were you thinking you should've asked the forum before you made these trades" category. 1. At no point in their careers have gio and Hyde combined been = to Julio plus you gave up Carr!
2. With the hype that Zeke was already getting predraft you should've been able to get White, Matthews and a mid 1st not had to add 1.09.

I just found a trade I made in 2015. Gave Le'Veon Bell for Matt Forte, Christine Michael, Cody Latimer, and a 2016 1st. He knocked me out of the playoffs by 5 points and won the league. With his 1.12 I took DGB.

This season I got a little trade happy in our official move to dynasty in team 1, ended up making my first trade of pick 1.1/Alshon/Watkins for AB then turned back and traded Gronk to get pick 1.1 back. Though in the end it was basically AB + Fournette for Gronk/Alshon/Sammy. Seemed silly at the time but feels better now.

Luckily I have no horror stories yet to date.

If that's the worst you've got then you're lucky. My first year of dynasty before season started I did the following trade which was a "win" according to everyone on these boards at the time:

Give: Beckham/John Brown Get: Harvin (this was 2014 when Harvin was about late 3rd round start-up value)

That is my all time most stinging trade by far, lessened a bit now since Brown's value has tanked but still...
Yeah I was with you in the Harvin hype. I traded:
A. Brown and J. Nelson
for
P. Harvin and P Garcon
