Should You Trade Your 1st-Round Rookie Pick?


You’ve waited nearly a year to use that beautiful 1st-round rookie pick. Now, should you trade it?

The answer, of course, is “it depends.” It depends on your league rules. It depends on whether your team is contending or rebuilding. And it depends on what kind of value you can get in return.

We can get a good idea of that last part thanks to the ADP data over at DynastyLeagueFootball.com. Let’s take a look at the veterans you might be able to get in a 1-for-1 trade of each 1st-round pick. I’ve also listed the corresponding rookie with each pick based on ADP, although how you rank the rookies right now will likely differ.
