I've been offered Max Scherzer for Freddie Freeman.  Should I take this trade?  My team is below.

I'd say there's more upside with Scherzer so if you're currently on pace to not do well, it's worth the risk.

That's the amusing thing:  Your projected standings say I should finsih 6th, but I'm currently in the lead and I only have one position where I'm one game over the limit:  First base.  All others are either at pace or behind.

The projected standings do not take into account past performance, it's only looking forward.

It needs to catch up, but that's beside the point.

A little late to this party... I love Scherz and think he'd still be drafted higher in most leagues if the draft was today. With 5 active hitters, going from Freeman to Abreu seems like a much smaller drop than the increase from Bassitt to Scherz. (Granted, I'm not sure exactly how your games/IP maxes work.) But Roto is a funny thing. Wins seem tough for all WAS pitchers this season. The bullpen shows no signs of maintaining wins anytime soon. Scherz's ERA and WHIP are worse so far this season. How many points can you gain in K's? Have some room to grow there? A bunch of people barely in front of you, or are you stuck where you are? And how does that "room to grow in K's" compare to your "points to lose in AVG"? Those seem like the big things that will move... and hopefully Scherz improves and gets his ERA and WHIP back in line with previous years to net you a few points. This early in the season, I'd still lean towards "best overall player" as if the draft was today... which would lead me to go with Scherz. But if you're already in first with some room in your roto points, I'd understand your hesitation...
