I just made a trade in a 10 team PPR redraft league; I am also the commissioner.
I am 3-6, three games out of a playoff spot with five regular season games to go. The top four teams in the playoffs right now are 9-0, 7-2,6-3,6-3.
I just made a trade with a team that is 1-8, where I give up Sony Michel and OJ Howard for Dalvin Cook. I only made this trade because two of my top three RBs, Sony and Nick Chubb, are on bye next week and I am fighting to stay alive; I can’t drop down to replacement level at that RB spot.
Another owner said to me that this trade is “comical/silly” because the 1-8 team is mathematically out of it, and he has no reason to trade, and he would consider veto’ing.
Generally speaking, this league’s rule is veto only in the case of Collusion, which this was not at all. He’s also not mathematically out of it (if the 1-8 owner won the rest of his games averaging 200 points, he’d have a chance to make it, theoretically) if we’re using that angle. That being said, what do you all think?
