FF trade

4 posts in this topic

What do you guys think about this trade?

Steve Smith

Owen Daniels

Lendale White

for

Greg Jennings

Antonio Gates

Larry Johnson

This trade just went through in a league I am in. I am in first place playing against the guy who got Jennings/Gates/LJ who is is 6th. The guy who gave up those three is in 2nd one game behind me. These two are also brothers and run the league.

Does this look like trying to stack a team to any of you? It does to me and some of the other stuff they have pulled is making me lean towards not being in this league again next year. I am also in another league of theirs but they have 4 divisions so they are not able to trade with each other like this.

I dunno. I think you're paranoid. First thing I do when I see a trade is decide who made out better, and I couldn't figure who got the best of that deal. Looks pretty fair to me.

Pretty tough to call collusion on a trade like that. The #'s probably jive pretty well and I don't think anyone in that group is primed to break out really in the 2nd half of the season.

Play your cards right and you can ride first place to the finish line.

Well LJ is hurt, and Gates (whos on my FF team, btw) got shut down last week by a horrible Vikes pass Defense. I think the other guy got the better end of that deal.

yeah, but steve smith isn't exactly lighting it up. Lendale white has been playing well as of late, but the other RB on his team are starting to get healthy. (white got hurt this week BTW)

Jennings has been on fire lately. I personally don't like trades in any FFL. In all the leagues I play in they seem to happen so rarely, and when they do they always seem lopsided. Or, the trade appears fair, but one person upgrades their team need way more than the other, And you wonder why anyone would allow that person to get their lineup that good. And then you throw in some people have stronger freindships or brother relationships, etc. I'm just not a fan of trades.

My personal belief is to keep the number of teams in your league low, say 8-10. Then also keep the rosters small so there is always a healthy supply of at least half-way decent players on the waiver wire. This keeps all teams interested to the end. While still rewarding those who draft well, but not allowing the league to be won by drafting alone. Just my thoughts.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
