Quick rant, and this is what pisses me off about some fantasy guys. I'm getting raked over the coals by a few people in my league because I traded the 20th-best scoring player for the 5th. On the surface, it makes sense, it looks like I'm screwing the other guy over. Only here's the kicker.
Matt Ryan is his 3rd qb. He has yet to start him all season because his other two QBs are Peyton Manning and RG3. Conversely, his WRs were AJ Green and Nate Washington. I sent him a message saying I wanted Ryan, and for him to name his price and I'll try and make something happen. He asks for Marshall, I say okay, we do a deal. He gets a much needed positional boost, and I get a starting QB.
Now I'm getting shit because 'I' didn't offer him more. Which is stupid for a couple reasons, but maybe most importantly is this: the only other trade offer for Matt Ryan this dude received was Eric Decker for Ryan straight across. And if that was the competition, a guy who isn't even a #1 on his own team, then not only did I give him enough, I probably paid above market value.
So there it is. Some people need to realize this is a friggen game, and yes, some trades are going to be a little one-sided, but once again, FRIGGEN GAME. Remember when winning a trade was a good thing?
