Oh, thank you, your lordship.
Now since you didn't get it, I'll break it down for you.
I did say that Tiki was a slight bump up from Dunn. And he is. But not a great deal. Through week 11:
Tiki - 998 yards rushing, 311 yards receiving, 1 TD, 2 Fumbles
Dunn- 813 yards rushing, 98 yards receiving, 3 TDs, 1 Fumble
Using 1 per 10, 6 pt TDs, and -4 pt fumbles, Tiki has 124.9 pts, Dunn has 105.1. So Tiki is gaining another 2 pts per week. So that's how Dunn is a stud and Tiki isn't very valuable. Because he's not that big of an improvement over Dunn. If this is being justified on some sort of, "big play for this year" kind of deal, he should be getting more out of it than an additional two points a week. And alright, DeAngelo is fine, better than a shmuck. But he's still a rookie. And unknown how long he's going to start.
So you're getting 2 pts a week and a rookie and giving up two established starters (and you know Portis isn't going anywhere) and a rookie. If you want to call DeAngelo and Jennings as pushes, fine.
So then you're giving up Portis, who will be a top-10 pick next year, and Dunn, who will be a top 20, for an additional 2 points a week. Makes zero sense. (And by the way, spreading sense is what I have to gain in this. I don't even know what this guy's league is, much less have any players involved).
So I asked you two questions, which you avoided answering.
1) What would you consider a close to vetoable trade? Do you have any idea?
2) Would you object if, in a 2-keeper league, one guy traded his first four picks for someone else's first four picks in the next season, before the draft happens in either year?
