    Kinda surprised we haven't had a dispersal pick trade yet.

    Yeah I'm out on Trout although I wasn't likely to pursue him very hard.

    Why would anyone give up a player for a pick when they aren't sure who would be available.

    I've tried unsuccessfully to acquire the 1st and 2nd overall picks in the draft.

    Well just like in the initial draft, you're just trading for the value of the pick. If you think the dispersal draft will go Trout, JDM, Anthony Rendon, you might trade for the 4th pick expecting Blackmon but if someone falls you take them instead.

    For me, it's tough to make a trade before (a) knowing who is available at the given pick and (b) knowing what my team needs are. Others could have very different player valuations than me, so I don't want to trade a 3rd rounder, when one of my top 6 players could be available at that pick.

    But on top of that, there really hasn't been any interest, which is surprising because I figured that you guys would be licking your chops trying to take advantage of us newbs. I've just had one manager reach out and let me know which players he's willing to dangle. If there's interest, I'd encourage people to let me know before the draft a rough outline of a trade they'd be interested in. Since we only have 1 hour to complete trades at our window mid-draft, it's not really much time to evaluate an offer that comes in at the start of a window, so being able to research available players ahead of time would help facilitate trading...

    Bad Orgfiller. Don't give any rankings please.

    I think we'll see a lot more trades when the draft is live.

    Non-drafters will get excited when they see an undervalued player slipping through the cracks, and drafters will despair when they get sniped a few picks before.
    Would probably be good to set a max trade window once someone's turn starts. I'd say two hours. I get that things are gonna be in-flux depending on who gets picked in the last round, but some guys will ride out the full 12 hours, hoping to extract that extra 5th round pick.

    Why not just wait for the 4th pick to come up and go from there?

    I.e I gave Goldbull a list of 4 players that are available and if he would rather select them then the remaining pool, let me know and I'll check and we can make a deal

    The only player whose rank I properly put any thought into in the above order is Trout lol.

    We have a 1-hour trade window.

    I think we should lengthen it for this draft.
