I am in a 10 team snake draft PPR League.
I am drafting #7 and the #4 guy calls and wants to switch draft positions with me so I would be drafting #4.  
What are the advantages or disadvantages to making this switch on my part...thanks

Who are you looking at taking #4 overall?  If you think he drops to 7 then you have a better draft position the rest of the way taking 7th and 14th over 4th  17th.

We have the same option in our 16 team league where I landed the fifth pick. Basically everyone is trying to move to either the front end or back end of the first round. Not sure why everyone just doesn't want the highest draft choice they can get. I think it has to do with fear of wrong choice more than better even round draft choices.

I'd switch. You could nab Rogers, Bradie, or an elite RB if they slip somehow.

 Four is a key spot. You get quality and only sacrifice 4 spots in round 2. This other guy must have rocks in his head.

It depend when you draft last.. the upside to it is that you get 2 top20 guys basically, I mean you can get two elite player in the top15 or so... if you pick the right guys it can be huge for you, honestly when you pick last, you get a chance at getting to solid elite players... if... you can pick the good one.

Other years I would say no, but this year I would change these picks in a heart beat...  there are only 3 sure handed RB's every other rb is a injury risk.  And if the rb go 1-3, you can get one the top qb's... they could go 4,5,6 and at 7 you end up with risk pick, such as a mcfadden or murray who could be good but injury risk
