Whether your team is 4-1 or 1-4, you're always looking for ways to improve. The trade is a rare occurrence in the NFL, yet it is a constant in your fantasy football league.

There are different theories on how to structure a trade, and what a "good " trade is. Some fantasy owners think a good trade is when you clearly get the better of the deal, even to the point of fleecing the other owner. I disagree. A good trade can help one owner more than the other, but in the end, it should benefit both teams, and fills voids on both rosters.
