Just looking for what you guys do.
At the end of the year the top teams usually have the best players. In a keeper league that protects for examples sake 3 players, it may be that the top team through trades, luck, good drafting or waiver watching has 4 or 5 potential keepers. The bottom teams may only have 1 or 2.
I suppose you could look at off season trading in two ways. If you allow trading the top teams can trade away that 4th or 5th keeper(because they can't protect them) to a bottom team for a draft pick. The result is the bottom team gets the specific player they want. The top team who already had 3 good keepers has now increased his draft picks. The arguement for it is the top teams say they have assembled their team and should be able to liquidate their assests. No one is forcing the bottom teams to do the trade. The arguement against it is the draft if desgined to work as a bit of a reset every year if the top teams are keeping their best players and at least potentially getting the best draft picks by trading away playres they can't protect anyway but that bottom teams deem as valuable. it may result in the top teams staying at the top.
Any thoughts advice?
What do you do in your league?
