My worst trade happened during April of this year. I traded Brandin Cooks and 2.7 for 1.2. I thought DK Metcalf was going to be a stud and thought he'd be the next best thing in the league. I then traded Leveon, JuJu and 1.2 for Zeke, Diggs, and 1.3. I turned 1.3 into Miles Sanders. So, at the end of the day I lost WR depth bigly.

Right after our 2016 draft, someone in our league got rookie fever and sold Julio Jones for Laquon Treadwell + Matt Jones + 2017 1st (ended up being 1.09 I think).

In my 10tm SuperFlex, I was offered Brissett & Pollard for Justice Hill 3 days before Luck retired (I own Luck)

...Since I'm posting here, I think you know whether I accepted/declined

I took Baker Mayfield in the second round of last years rookie draft. I immediately got an offer of a 2019 1st for him so I took it. I figured since I had Andrew Luck, I would be fine. Now Luck has retired and I'm second guessing the decision to trade Mayfield. I won't call it a bad trade yet. I have Cousins and Brissett and used the pick for JJAW. But if I could go back in time, I would keep Baker.

Rough. At least a 1st is still good value... I had Darnold slightly above Baker coming out, so I offered Baker + a little for Darnold, instant decline. Got the offer of Darnold for Baker straight up in week 4 hahaha

I was just looking back at my startup draft from 2014...

I apparently drafted Davante Adams with the 189th pick.
I do not remember picking him there.
I do not own him now. Don't even think he made it through that season on my roster.
I do not remember what I got for him, so probably 0
I messed up somewhere...

This is why I love trading for "projected late 1sts", every now and then they aren't so late and become massive steals.

My league does its draft during the actual NFL draft, and at that juncture in time this year, I dealt Tyreek Hill AND Tevin Coleman for the 1.10 in a 14 team league amidst all the hoopla with Tyreek. I basically had him as a throw in to go with Coleman, thinking Hill might be gone for awhile, if not more.... well, we all know how that turned out! On top of it all, I selected Parris Campbell to replace Hill, figuring he would be playing with Luck for years to come... that one I wish I had back, but I am still optimistic about Campbell none the less. Oh well!
