Shawn Siegele discusses the importance of trading during dynasty startups and outlines concepts that will help you dominate leagues like the new RotoViz TriFlex Dynasty format from the FFPC.

Blair Andrews and I recently participated in a dynasty startup in the awesome RotoViz TriFlex format. This new offering from the FFPC includes superflex, TE Premium, a greater emphasis on wide receivers, and more flex spots to replace defense and kicker.

Blair recently detailed our crazy draft plan that included no picks in the first three rounds but 19 selections by the end of Round 12. Since we also accumulated 21 picks in the 2022 rookie/veteran draft, the squad looks poised to win later. In the Wrong Read No. 71, Blair explained why it’s also set to win now.

But how did we manage the 13 trades that so radically restructured our roster? In this edition of the Dynasty Workshop, I’ll discuss global trade strategy and look at five of the key trades.

Trading Is About Relationships and Should Generally Be Win-Win

A lot of the discussion around any particular trade will focus on who “won” the interaction. This is always a fun topic for debate. We all have player and strategic preferences that are manifested in trades. But it can also obscure the real goal of the trade, which is to accomplish your objectives and help your trade partners accomplish theirs.

Although we’re all familiar with trades that look fairly unbalanced, most trades should be “wins” for the two owners involved and “losses” for the remaining 10 owners. Being a high volume trader is generally more helpful than holding out for that one trade that you convincingly win.
