FF trade

4 posts in this topic

What do you guys think about this trade?

Steve Smith

Owen Daniels

Lendale White


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.

      Shagawa in Ely has a public beach.  That's the closest to Bear Head that I know of.  You'd have to launch a ways across the lake but you could just motor over to it.

      Sorry for late response.  The Gander in Eden Prairie had quite a few...

      Catfishing is pretty stable right now. The water is getting very low making the north end of Grand Forks begin to get sketchy for travel.  The lack of current has the fish spread out also.  Stay on the move and when you land of fish you should have no trouble catching them.  The best areas have been anywhere you can find more current than the surrounding area.  The middle of the River in mid range holes has also been a good place to look. 
        Bait has changed for me this week with frogs being the hands down number one so far.  Sucker and goldeye have been working too.  I still believe getting bait in front of the fish is is the key more than what the bait is but try it all.   Remember the I-29 Catfish Classic is in just 2 weeks.

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Go to the fields off hwy 10 where diamonds used to be and where the boat launch is in Ramsey. I plant feathers and stuff there sometimes there is a variety of tall grass around there.   the best pre buy program I have found is at golden meadows. if you put money on an account before aug 26 the prices are  depending on when you go Aug. 20 - Sept. 4
      Sept. 5 - Oct. 2
      Oct. 3 - Nov. 6
      Nov. 7 - Dec. 4

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.
