Without knowing the scoring rules in your league i think the deal is somewhat equal. Edwards is on the decline, maybe a #3 WR now. Dez depends on Kitna now, and I don't ever care about tight ends. either of them can score any given week. The main trade here looks like a straight up #1 for #1 RB, which nulls the trade, IMO..

#1 guy trades Ryan Matthews, Braylon Edwards and Visanthe Shiancoe for #12 guy's Frank Gore, Dez Bryant, and Todd Heap
Especially when it's the #1 guy in the league trading to the desperate #12 guy. It just seems bad for the league.
The trade I think favors #1, but it's not outrageous. TE's and WR's are pretty equal, and cancel out. RB's don't, Matthews is inconsistent and splits with Tolbert, Sproles. Gore is a tank and is about 80% of that offense. But like I said, it's not absolutely crazy, so I dont think you can veto.
the 1st 2 posters are idiots or drunk, yes id veto and dez is worth more than braylon also. You don't trade ryan mathews for gore. Gore is a top 4 player, mathews is not. Simple stuff. Veto and email people in your league to veto and dont be a wimp
The TEs are even, but there is no way Mathews and Edwards come close to equating the value of Gore and Bryant...if it is a PPR league it becomes even worse...
I am not a fan of vetoing trades, as in many cases it is just other owners whining, and I prefer to let people play it out, but what does #12 stand to gain from this transaction, besides 20% of the pot as a thank you when his colluding patner wins...
who says this favors the first team?? matthews is NOT a #1 running, just because he was drafted as high as a number one doesnt make him one.. he is the biggest bust of the season. gore is an absolute stud, not to mention his cake of a schedule coming up for the fantasy playoff season!! just for comparison, i had gore and traded him along with ocho-stinko( only because my wr2 and 3 was knox and ocho and i needed help at wr bad!) but i got brandon marshall, percy harvin, and peyton hillis.. while the trade has definatly helped me out i still miss gore, he is one of the only backs whose average is an actual average he consistently puts up points every week, hes not a guy with a good average because he scored 50 points 1 week then 5 the next
so no way gore for matthews is even
1 point ppr stafford, henne best, deangelo, mccoy, benson, starks fitzgerald, d-jax, jordy nelson, harvin, hester gates, gonzalez rackers baltimore
unkleskott, thankks. Actually it was NOT collusion. Both are honest lads. Both don't need the $. One is my brother. So, that was not the issue. I believe the real issue is the next most common league-killer (after collusion), and the harder one with which to deal. Namely: the dissonance between the Guys not caring enough vs. the Guys caring too much. The #1 guy is ravenous to maintain his lead and dominate in the playoffs. The #12 guy is usually there for mostly bad luck, but partly disinterest or inability. He was the real problem here. He probably figured. Well, this is the best I can do right now and I don't have the time or the time left to find a better deal and I must win this week. I'll just do this and wing it. With no care that it makes #1 almost unbeatable.
I don't know the solution other than not asking that guy back. And although I curse the amount of luck in Fantasy, this is one of the times I will root for it. Because just a one week of bad luck in week #14 and #1 guy could be done.
