Benefits Analysis Second Team
Detritment Analysis Second Team
Type (in favor of _____ team)
Unfair: Trade is extremely lopsided to one side and should be considered to be voided. The net value of one side is greater than twice the net value of the other.
Lopsided: The trade value of one side is between 1.5 and 2.0 times greater for one side than for the other.
Slight Edge: The trade value of one side is between 1.2 and 1.5 times greater for one side than for the other.
Even: The trade value is within 0.2 for both sides.
Because of the nature of trades the net change does not have to be cumulatively 0, it's possible for both teams to be negative, both teams to be positive, or both teams to differ in a way that does not sum to 0.
Leadership: Locker room presence adjustment
Age: Likelihood of retirement, proneness to injury
Chemistry: How the team is affected as a whole
Unit Strength (O-Line, D-Line, Receivers, Linebackers, Secondary, Special Teams, etc): Whether complete or marginal impact on the overall cohesiveness and skill total of the unit.
Morale: How much other players are impacted by a leader being traded, a top tier player being traded, or a player gaining competition at their position.
More may be added in the future.
