Proposed Fantasy Trade

9 posts in this topic

I am the commish for my fantasy league and have to approve trades. Here is one on the block...the situation is one guy is on the outside of playoffs at 4-6 looking to shake things up and the other is 7-3 looking for a great deal....the 4-6 team is offering C. Johnson tenn RB #9 overall RB J.Jones Sea. RB #26 Roddy White Atl WR #2 D.Clarke Ind TE #5 Jets D #2 to the 7-3 team and they will send the 4-6 team J.Stewart Car RB #31 Hightower Ariz RB #24 G Jennings GB WR #6 Chi QB #9 and Sheifler Den TE #9.........the 4-6 team says he wants a new QB and Chi is an improvement but he just picked up the Chiefs QB #12 and the points difference between the 2 QBs is 12 points for the year 135-123........So if you were in my shoes would you allow the trade?

Nope. Not with White and Chris Johnson in there for the 7 and 3 team.

thanks that is what I am trying to explain to the 4-6 team but the 7-3 team kinda just chuckled when I broke down the numbers to him

I would allow it.

Hightower has huge upside for the end of the year. Jennings is no slouch either.

If it were my league I would let it go, there are much worse trades than that.

I think its ok. Maybe a little lopsided but close enough to be allowed.

In my league all trades must go to a vote by all league managers. This prevents me as the commish to be the lone opinion. So far no trade has ever been voted down, it was close a few times though.

I'd allow the trade. The 7-3 team is definitly getting the better deal. But like stated above Hightower does have upside and Jennings is a stud. Which Bears QB may make a huge difference. If Orton comes back and plays like he did earlier then it starts to even things out a bit.

You can't base trade approvals on upside. Ozzie they need to understand the 7 and 3 team chuckled because he is getting the better deal.

You think there might be a little more going on with this trade than changing out the QB? After all he just picked up Pigpen and he's a stud wink

well the reason we made a 3 man comittee to determine if a trade is ok or not is cause this same guy (4-6) tends to do this every year....he likes to try to make things happen.....last year by the end of the season he did not have one player on his squad that he drafted......

Another no vote from one of the other commishoners stopped the trade and when I informed the 7-3 team he said well maybe we will have to put more on the table and the 4-6 team said " I bet you $20 Hightower-Jennings-Sheifler out score Johnson-White-Clarke the rest of the year" I had to tell him that could be but the way it looks right now it is uneven.....Oh Well alot of money on the line to be trying to guess if guys will out score the top players through 10 weeks!!

    • Fletcher must really like these guys that are small and quick.  I don't understand why they are trying so hard to keep the team intact.  They haven't made it past the 2nd round for the 5-6 years.  We've had this discussion before, but at what point do you say this just isn't working as is?   They have to move good players to get good players.  
    • I look at it like cast iron....numerous cookings give 'em a perfect seasoning. Gotta leave some residue on IMO.
    • No butcher buddy? They can order one for ya....be advised they have taken a huge leap in prices. Ask a butcher about that. Mine (who's also a good friend) said it's the highest he's ever seen 'em at right now.
    • jhust find a locker plant that smokes their own bellies and buy one from them.
    • I have seen it in Costco quite often.  Didn't look last time.    Or call around, often the meat markets will special order if desired.   Seems it was in the 3 buck a pound area if I remember right.     I don't know how far from a Costco you are, but they are a good place to buy meat.   Sams Club might work also. 
    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
    • Since my smoker is new for now I throw them in the big wash sinks in the basement with some Dawn and hot water to soak. Then rinse them with more hot water. I'm sure in time once they get more "purplefloyd seasoned". I'll rub them a bit with a grill brush and hit them with a garden hose! 
    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
    • Anyone know where I can find it?  Checked a couple grocery stores and even a butcher and nobody has it?  Also what's a decent price if I do find any? 
    • When mine get caked I nuke em on the gas grill for about 15 minutes. easy peasy
