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!!

    • I think it's called "Putting America to Work".    And it's a part time job on the same order as getting paid to applaud.     Looks like an easy job that would allow some time for fishing on the side.  Where do I sign up?
    • It's used in most enclosed trailers now but being uncovered would be my concern, treated won't react with the aluminum in a negative way ?
    • Nah...   You won't get an answer from the lefties on that one.   Nor will you get an answer as to why the lefty hate mongers break windows, burn cars, beat people, throw rocks and bottles at police all weekend long exercising their so called "right" to peaceful protest...   And the women's march ??     MC maddona..(who does not reside in America) takes the cake (pun intended) with three f' enhiemers and a threat to blow up the white house...   Frauds and Losers ....        
    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
