There are a number of great trade calculators out there - including my personal favourite one on this here forum's parent site.
If anyone's ever getting too uppity on trade value, I usually just send them a screenshot to help reset expectation and explain that they are off base. Calculators may not be perfect, but at least your trade partner can't argue that they're biased.
You can't just "sign out" on trading in dynasty. There's no other way to get the veteran players you want otherwise. It's essential - and in that sense, dynasty is so much more about building your relationships with the other owners in your league.
If you want to use calculators for your own personal valuations knock yourself out, but sending screenshots to other owners as a reason why they should change their valuation is laughable.
Way to get it twisted. My exact words were "if anyone's ever getting too uppity..." - which was in response to this sort of impasse:
"HAd another guy a couple weeks ago approached me about swapping Prescott for Matt Ryan...wanted me to add an early 2020 1st. Said no thanks, you're buying so you should add a bit on your side.
..maybe a late 3rd? Guy threw a fit about that."
Laying out the values of that sort of a deal on a Calculator can at least let other owners who are perhaps doing their valuations "on the fly" know when they are (completely?) off-base - and from an independant 3rd party source at that. I've gotten plenty of deals across the line as a result of this sort of play - and I lead my league in trades by a wide margin. Often, the other person just wants to know they're not being ripped - if the numbers add up, it can help ease their mind.
But by all means, laugh away. Jeez.
I agree with this statement completely. It doesn’t seem to get much consideration in many trade offers or in discussion forums. But I make a big deal of it. If someone offers me a cold offer that is dead even, unless I like it because of personal preference I will ask for more. Some owners get it, some don’t. Moreover, if I’m making the offer it will often be slightly in the other guy’s favor for that same reason. I would them get criticized for overpaying if I posted the deal on this site, so I don’t bother too often.
