When the off-season hits, that’s when the action picks up in dynasty leagues. You have the end of year statistics to look over, prep to do for the upcoming rookie draft, and most importantly, trade packages to put together. All of this is to put you in the best possible position heading into the next season. For most, trades can be best summed up by a process one of my league mates once explained, “You’ll make an outrageous offer. Then I’ll make an outrageous offer. Eventually, we’ll meet somewhere in the middle.” What if trades didn’t have to be like this though? Sure, every league has that manager that’s going to explain to you why he’s doing you a favor and how he’s losing the trade. He’s just doing a lazy version of what I’m proposing to you in this article. What if we paid attention to our language and used rhetoric, like how we were taught to write persuasive papers in high school, to build trade offers?
