How imbalanced does it have to be before you (or anyone else here) would vote against it? I ask because before last week I voted against a deal for the first time and got a little backlash. Just seems like some trades potentially ruin the competitive balance of the league and you don't want a situation where sending out awful trade offers is good strategy, especially when your league may have newer players who will decide based on yahoo trade evaluator.

FWIW, the trade I voted against was late last week (pre Allen injury but post him being completely terrible) in a superflex where team A only had Aaron Rodgers at QB:
Team B gets: Sony Michel
Team A gets: Josh Allen
Team B also had Winston/Stafford/Mariota.

And the thing doesn't even do a good job at all frankly. If you've got some bye issue it might make a trade look lopsided when a perfectly viable solution exists. I wish they'd make it optional (like the can't cut list).


I mean yeah itís a terrible evaluator, but itís really easy to manipulate it to your advantage if someone values it. Especially when youíre the one offering depth for upgrade 2:1 type deals (as you should be).

As far as timing Iíve already been consolidating for a couple weeks but can see waiting a bit if the league rosters are so deep that the wire is completely bare.

You have more faith in Nagy and his staff than I do. Coaches are so dumb they'll probably use Gabriel and Cohen as decoys to try and outsmart the other coaching staff. It happens all the time.......

Damn. Only other semi legit reciever on my bench is Christian Kirk. Do I play him tonight instead of Robinson? Or roll the dice then be stuck with a bum RB (R.Jones, chubb, jusczyk, ivory) on Sunday if Robinson cant go?

This is exactly why putting it up to a league vote is a horrible idea.

Is Tre'quan available in case ARob is out? Would prefer him to any of those RB options.

Bench at your own risk. Kirk looks like the best receiver in this draft class at this point. Still prefer Sutton over kirk longterm but Rosen looks legit too. That could change my rankings by the end of the year.......

Playing the 0-6 team too who just got ingram back from suspension. I got Graham on bye and rolling the Geoff Swaim. Embarrassment could commence. But I'm rolling with Kirk. Robinson has been frustrating anyway though I like them playing from behind against that NE secondary

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

Denver D basically a stand in for Christian Kirk at this point. 0 targets so far but 2 targets 2 td for Denver D lol

Maybe stop growing to Chad William's or whatever and JJ nelson and get Kirk some touches

Edit: is Kirk even playing?

This is literally the best start you could have had besides a long bomb to kirk right off the bat.

Sanders! Keep throwing and run up the score!

Stage so set for Kirk garbage time. Just get these other bums off the field. Chad Williams getting all the targets
