Editor’s note: In case you missed it, we recently introduced our revolutionary Dynasty Trade Finder tool. The Trade Finder gathers information from several thousand dynasty leagues, allowing users to search recent trades involving players and draft picks, and filter by league scoring, size and starting lineup requirements. In addition to Mark’s research, we will soon be able to examine more deals involving individual draft picks (when MyFantasyLeague.com flips over to 2017 leagues).
You have been reading about the 2017 draft class for over a year now, and you are experiencing symptoms of 2017 rookie draft hysteria more than ever before. You have tried to trade up for the first overall pick, but the owner of the 1.01 is asking for a king’s ransom. What do you do next? That’s right, you shift your focus to the 1.02. As you look over your roster and theirs, you are no doubt left wondering…what exactly is the 2017 1.02 worth? Well, first have a look at my previous article from this series, examining the trade value of the 2017 1.01. I refer you to this work because it is becoming more and more evident that, this year, possibly more than any other, the value-gap between the 1.01 and 1.02 is razor thin. The fact that so many are split on who should go first (between Dalvin Cook and Leonard Fournette) helps explain why.
Over the past weeks, I ran countless Twitter polls, over-utilized trade calculators, taken to our dynasty forums, and more, to formulate a consensus value for 2017 1.02 rookie-draft selection. Like my last piece in this series regarding the 2017 1.01, after compiling the results from my market research, I sought to develop examples of “fair” and “unfair” trades based on that data (see below).
