Trade Draft Picks

You are able to trade draft picks. This can be done on the ESPN Fantasy App and on the web. Before trading draft picks, this setting must be enabled by the League Manager on ESPN.com.

  • Propose the draft pick trade

Note: If you trade and receive a net total of draft picks greater than the number of rounds in the draft (i.e. more players than you have roster slots for), your draft will end once you've reached the maximum and you won't be able to select any more players. Draft pick trading is available until one hour before your draft.

Trade Draft Picks in a Keeper League

  • Draft pick trades can be made as a swap of picks or as a combination of keepers and picks. Draft pick trades can only be done prior to the Keeper deadline for League Manager Leagues

    • The Keeper deadline is determined by League Managers

  • You are trading for an owner's pick in a given round, not the pick itself

  • If there's no assurance that your League Manager won't switch the draft order, it might be wise to avoid making such a trade. Otherwise that 2nd overall pick you thought you traded for could become the 10th pick just like that
