Every now and then I see people suggesting new ways to "possibly" improve on the Fantasy aspect of the game. Personally, I would like to see "TRADES" as a possible option when acquiring players. We all kick ourselves when we miss out on the certain player who's price rises to a level that only those who picked him up early can benefit from his now excellent play. That is fair and that is how it should be, BUT.......
What if we had this option? Say I pick up Bale at 16 and his price is now 22. As it stands now, if I were to drop him I would only get 16 for him, but if there were a "TRADE" option available that would allow you to trade him for any player who's price does not exceed his current price of 22.
Example: Buy Bale at 16. His price jumps to 22. I want Suarez this week who's current price is 18.38. Now, if I sell Bale at 16, I would not have the funds to do this, but if there were a "trade" option I could trade for Suarez. No extra funds would be credited to your account for the difference in price.
Trades could be limited to say (4) per season. If this option were available then some of the GIANT price increases on players could...at least 4 times per year.... be used as a way to acquire players who's pricing has made them unattainable, possibly for an entire season. Think of it as a "Turbo Boost" for your team.
The leader in your group has RVP. You cannot have him unless you spent 28 and you feel that without him you will never catch up. You grabbed VDV at 16 and he has several great weeks until his price is also 28 but feel his point total has seen it;s best days. You then "trade" him for RVP providing that his price remains no more then 28. It may work out in the end..It may not, but it could be that boost that allows those teams that have been "so close" for years to finally make a move that wins them their group or.... cost them the title.
Where am I going wrong?
