- Research the current season's hottest players. If after your team assessment you found out that you do have an excess of players or that you have some injured players, it is only natural that you want to trade them with the best players out there right? So before accepting or proposing a trade, make sure that you have made your assignment to find out if a trade, and the players that you will drop and accept in exchange, will benefit your whole team.
- Find a team to trade your players with. To find a team to trade your players with, log in first to your Yahoo! Fantasy League account.

You want to select promising players to add to your roster.
- Propose a trade with the other team. When you are done looking around other team's roster and once you are ready to propose the trade, go back to your league's main page and then click on the link for 'Propose Trade'. Find the team you want to trade players with. Choose the players you want by placing a check mark on the check box beside their names. After selecting all of the players you want from the other team, click 'Continue'. This time you have to put a check mark beside the names of your own players that you will be dropping off for the trade, then click 'Continue' once you are done.
