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!!

    • Ever notice how the politically bias media does everything it can to keep you voting for one side or another, can't let any 3rd parties in because the powers that be lose control. They are doing an amazing job with our minds that is for sure, both sides.
    • I would regulate the drugs just like alcohol, pretty easy actually. Now we would have to draw a line in the sand on what drugs are legal and which to keep illegal, we can't use public opinion for this because that is what got us in trouble in the first place. There have been numerous studies on drugs that at least give us an idea on how dangerous they are, things will get a little confusing because some legal drugs now are the most dangerous but there is no reason to go backwards with those drugs because we have already been there and it didn't work. I can't possibly cover every detail in a post so I am guessing you want to know which drugs to make legal and which should remain banned.

      Lethal dose chart, one could make a case for drawing a diagonal line to the right of caffeine.


      This chart can be a little deceiving because obviously some drugs that are used more than others but it tells an interesting story none the less.


      Another physical harm chart, these may or may not work but again just a guideline on drugs we could consider for legalization.
    • Anyone have one?  Last year they ran them on sale for $200 at the local farm n fleet.  That happens again i might have to gets me one!
    • Before anyone goes out and buys an ION....     Also Dewalt has a 9ah battery now too.   http://www.homedepot.com/p/DEWALT-FLEXVOLT-20-Volt-60-Volt-Lithium-Ion-9-0-Ahr-Battery-Pack-DCB609Y/300610594?cm_mmc=Shopping|THD|G|0|G-BASE-PLA-D25T-PowerTools|&gclid=CjwKEAiArbrFBRDL4Oiz97GP2nISJAAmJMFah6JUW7Wlbuw6Pzzf6CZFbYHwv3JOUaeQnfyiJpPemhoCm_Xw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

    • So should I get a reality show first? Trust me the two parties are going to great job of taking themselves out. I am also unelectable with the current mindset the voters have so don't worry about me.

      In other news who needs Russia when the DHS is trying to hack our elections? Sure they might have been just been looking for weaknesses but it does seem a little unsettling that the fed wants to get their hands on the state systems.

    • Please describe in detail why the war on drugs has been successful and why we should continue with the same policies we have had for the past 3 decades or so.    I am really wondering what the timeline is for these policies to start working.
    •   If you use Prohibition as an example, speakeasies turned into bars and nightclubs, and bootleggers turned into pimps and politicians.  So that option for drug dealers is still open.   Of course if prostitution was legalized, about the only thing left would be to get into politics, so I guess some of them might have to turn to more honest professions like drug counseling or working for the FDA....   Drug stores could still operate under the eagle eye of the FDA and federal revenuers, and keep us all safe.   The big question is what would all the Carrie Nations of the world do?                                        
    •   The Republican party was originally formed as an opposition party to the Federalists, so now that the DNC and the RNC are both federalists, there is still room for a true republican party.
    • Is it happening this year?
