In order to make the playoffs in ESPN Fantasy Football, you’ll likely need to make a few trades along the way. Here are a few tips on how to push a trade through, based on my experience playing in multiple leagues over the past several years.
Identify the players in your trade
The first step is to identify the players you want to trade. Take a look at your team and see who you can afford to part with in order to get the players you want. Keep in mind that you’ll need to give up something of value in order to get something of value, so don’t be afraid to trade away a star player if it means you can get a difference-maker for your team.
Find a trade partner: Once you’ve identified the players you want to trade, it’s time to find a trade partner. The best way to do this is to look at the teams in your league that are struggling and see if they’re willing to part with any of their star players. You can also check the standings to see if any teams are desperate for a win and might be willing to make a trade that isn’t in their best interest.
Make an offer: Once you’ve found a trade partner, it’s time to make an offer. Be sure to include players that the other team needs and that you are willing to part with. It’s also important to be fair in your offer, as most trade offers that are lopsided tend to get rejected.
Be patient: Don’t be discouraged if your first offer is rejected, as this is often the case in fantasy football trades. Just be patient and keep trying until you find a trade partner that is willing to accept your offer.
Check ESPN’s fantasy football player rankings to make sure you are getting fair value
Once you’ve found a trade partner and made an offer, it’s important to check ESPN’s fantasy football player rankings to make sure you are getting fair value in the trade. This is especially important if you are trading away a star player, as you’ll want to make sure you are getting equal or greater value in return.
Get the most out of your trade: Now that you’ve made a trade, it’s important to make sure you get the most out of it. Be sure to check the player rankings on ESPN and other sites to see if the players you traded away are still ranked high. If they are, then you know you made a good trade. If not, then you might want to consider trading them back to the other team.
ESPN fantasy football player rankings are a great way to make sure you are getting fair value in a trade. Be sure to check them before making any trades, and don’t be afraid to make a trade that isn’t in your best interest if it means you can get a difference-maker for your team.
If the other owner agrees, submit the trade on ESPN Fantasy Football
Finally, if the other owner agrees to your trade offer, be sure to submit the trade on ESPN Fantasy Football so that it can be processed. Once the trade is processed, you’ll be able to see the new players on your team and begin using them in your lineup.
Wait for approval from ESPN’s team of experts
Once you’ve submitted the trade, all that’s left to do is wait for approval from ESPN’s team of experts. This can take a few days, so be patient and don’t fret if it takes a little while for the trade to go through. In the meantime, you can continue to manage your team and make sure you’re ready for the playoffs.
ESPN’s team of experts will review the trade and determine if it is fair. If it is, then the trade will be approved and you’ll be able to see the new players on your team. If not, then the trade will be rejected and you’ll have to try again.
Finalize the deal and enjoy your improved team!
Finally, once the trade is approved, you’ll be able to see the new players on your team. Be sure to finalize the deal by adding them to your lineup and enjoying your improved team! Thanks for reading and good luck in your fantasy football season.
