Have you ever made a trade in fantasy football that you regretted?
For those who need a refresher, the details of that landmark move are below.

In addition to three picks from the 2022 draft, the Broncos also gave up their first two selections in the 2023 draft, along with quarterback Drew Lock, tight end Noah Fant, and defensive lineman Shelby Harris.
If Wilson was playing up to his usual strengths, this trade would look like it was balanced, even favoring the Broncos.
However, Wilson and the Broncos haven’t exactly lived up to their preseason aspirations.
The Wilson Era In Denver
After a 3-6 start to the season, the Broncos find themselves near the bottom of the AFC.
From a statistical standpoint, Wilson is having one of, if not the worst seasons of his 11-year NFL career.
He is completing passes at a 57.4% rate, has only thrown seven touchdowns, and has thrown five interceptions.
His career completion percentage is 64.6%, and his worst season to date was a full 3.9 percentage points higher than his 2022 performance.
Also, his previous season low for touchdown passes was 20.
He’s currently on track to throw just 14 total touchdowns this year unless he’s able to turn it around.
Will the Broncos live to regret their decision to leverage their future for 34-year-old Wilson?
Are the Seattle Seahawks grateful they have Geno Smith at quarterback?
One way or the other, this trade feels incredibly lopsided.
