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!!

    • Where is the part where I say I am OK with it?
    • The CWD 'outbreak' in the 4 counties in the NW part of Wisconsin I believe is one case in the NW part of Barron County, or some where close to where those counties all meet.  All counties within X miles (40 miles?) of a positive result are considered CWD counties.  For the year or two after the found positive in that area the MN DNR did test deer in the neighboring MN area(s.)  I was hunting in both Burnett County, WI and east of Hinckley, MN in the year the positive test was found.  It's been awhile, the numbers might be off, but that was generally what happened.   How much money do you want our DNR to spend on so few positive results so far away?
    • We should never have Koivu on the ice in a 3 on 3 OT...Wait, he scored last night. He is phenomenal in OT, finishes with the same move Parise tried moments before him and failed. WTG Koivu! Insert half sarcastic, half praise here... Needed the win, got it. Mcdavid held in check.   Parise is the highest paid 4th line player. There is still something wrong with him. His stride hasn't looked right in over a year. Hope he just stays off the ice if he isn't going to get it together.
    • Looks like after today we'll be making some of the hard stuff!!! Here in the metro anyways
    • Waiting on a reply from the DNR but should be soon
    • They are all the same as the other hook models just a different screen. The Hook is just a re-branded Elite Chrip.
    • Appeared to be a nice product. I was not impressed with the sales guy or who ever he was at the Blane show. I asked if they sell the LED extrusion they had running along both sides of the trailer and he said its their own design I can get them if I buy a trailer bla bla bla... Once I stepped away a salesman from Coates RV said that he can get the extrusion for me being its nothing special! I have little time for people that lie to me, if he didn't know a better answer is no we don't sell to the public or i don't know.
    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.
