Fantasy trade strategy
This is the first installment of a season long series aimed at making you a better trader in fantasy football. If roster construction were a four-sibling family, drafting, waiver wire and start/sit would be the popular, good-looking and successful siblings, while trading would be the pimply one that eats dinner in his room. Too little time is spent on trade strategy, leaving the general fantasy populace to cast random offers around the league. That’s where this series comes in.
A key theme throughout this series will be the exploration of cognitive biases.
This series will teach you is how to recognize biases in yourself and in others and use them to your advantage in trade negotiations. The areas of cognitive psychology and behavioural science are too vast for me to go into great detail, but I’ll take some well-known and easily identifiable biases and apply them to the fantasy football landscape, and we’ll all come out more educated in the process. Sound like fun?
