The Scout Team: To the extreme!
If your first salvo in trade negotiations is inflated, you'll benefit in the end -- it's science
I stare and stare at the computer screen, my right index finger quivering above the mouse. For the past two hours, I've crafted and recrafted the perfect opening trade offer, expertly designed to capture the fancy of my targeted owner, Mr. Spots. But I can't hit send. Can't bear the thought that Mr. Spots will be underwhelmed and will scold me and think mean things of me. I am not Fantasy Scout -- a ruthless, heartless prognosticating machine whose Week 8 projections we'll reveal in just a minute. I am a sensitive ninny. And this makes me a lousy trader.
To read the rest of Scott's trading advice, plus a reason to sit Eli Manning the rest of the season, why you shouldn't worry about Anquan Boldin's ankle and several other fantasy suggestions for Week 8 and beyond, you must be an ESPN Insider.
