A fair trade is when both teams essentially win and both get what they want from the deal. sometimes it’s hard to figure out a fair trade because it’s hard to assess the value of the player. that’s where we come in to help evaluate trading using our fantasy football trade analyzer.
This fair trade advice can be applied to any fantasy sport, like fantasy basketball or baseball, not just fantasy football. It can involve any type of player and not just a star like Antonio Brown.
Reading: Should i make this trade
provide an unbiased opinion by assigning each player a player rating, often referred to as an fsp rating. We look at dozens of categories, expected projections, expert ratings, injury status, and much more. we count all that and get your rating.
Now that we understand where the ratings come from, let’s see how this applies to fair trade.
To ensure a fair trade, try to ensure that both sides of a trade have as close a total player rating number as possible.
Ideally, there should only be a few points of difference between each side of the trade. if there is a 5×5 exchange, then that number could be higher and reach more than 15 points in total. if there are fewer players on the trade, like a 2×2, then that number should be in the range of 5 to 10 or less.

That’s where the baseline is and what the league owners and commissioner should strive for.
We offer an additional analysis of a trade for paying members that shows your team ratings, current roster, position ratings, projections, and the effects of the trade on your projection.
This is the important part because it can show how a seemingly fair trade could be quite lopsided depending on the needs of the team and the competitiveness of the team.
On paper, it seems like a fair deal. the ratings between the two players are close. each team is getting an elite player and will upgrade their running backs or receivers.
You’ll notice that each team has two separate tabs called Projected Stats and Projected Trades to help you assess changes before and after the trade. obviously, by giving up antonio brown, that team will have a negative impact on their receiving stats, while the other team will win.

Take a look at the projected statistics. do you notice that some categories under racers are in red or orange for “god squad”? this indicates that the team is weak in running backs and it’s no wonder they want le’veon bell in this trade. this trade makes sense for your team.
Does the same apply to the other team in the exchange? do they need to beef up their wide receiver position? as we said earlier, both teams should get what they want from the trade and feel like they’ve won. in this example, both teams win.
Pay close attention to the rankings of each team. Notice how the first and second ranked teams are displayed? that tells me that we are dealing with two competitive and important teams for both teams involved and it is a great sign for a fair trade.
The last thing you want to see is a lower ranked team trading with a higher ranked team at the end of the season.
why? well, why would even a lower ranked team bother? this could lead to an unbalanced ‘super’ team and potentially an unfair trade. the only exception would be if the team involved in the trades is looking ahead to next year in a dynasty league.
These are all questions fantasy owners should consider and then vote on before agreeing to any trade. use fantasysp as an unbiased way to evaluate trades for your league. As a fantasysp member, you can link this trade on your league homepage and show them how the trade affects both teams.
this example happens to be soccer, but the same logic and functionality applies to all types of leagues.
