I am in a dynasty league that allows trading FAAB. Each team starts the season with $200 FAAB. I am not exactly sure how to value it in a trade. Obviously, any FAAB not spent by the end of the season goes away, but there are always opportunities.
However, this league is very deep, so free agents during the season won’t carry quite as much bang for the FAAB buck. For example, my team currently has 29 players between starters and bench, plus 5 players on my taxi squad. I also have another 5 IR spots, currently empty. There are 12 teams, which allows for a LOT of speculation.
For example, if Colin Kaepernick were to sign somewhere tomorrow, he would instantly become available as a free agent. That would be worth spending some serious FAAB (regardless of what you think of him as a person). But that is an extreme example.
Anyone have any thoughts on how to value FAAB in dynasty trades?
P.S. This is something Fantasy Pros should consider adding to their dynasty trade value article, since there are leagues that allow this out there.
