Anything to be concerned about?

Postby JoeySeven » Thu Sep 06, 2012 10:52 am

Beside having a bad owner that is making their team worse?


I just joined a free 16 team(10 keepers)league on fleaflicker.Had A live draft A few days ago.
Have not played FF in A few years.So I'm a little rusty to say the least.

Already one owner is making questionable moves and trades in the league(one with the commish)
Team A Drops Santana Moss ,WAS and Kenny Britt,TEN without picking up anyone up.

Do the drops raise a red flag.Or maybe just a new player that doesn't know better.
to soon to tell?
I know it is just a free league,but I think I would have replace this owner.

And the 1st trade already has 4/7 Vetoes when I checked.


1st trade
Team A gets
Michael Turner RB ATL
Matt Ryan QB ATL
Brandon Gibson WR STL

Team B gets
Darren Sproles RB NO
Brandon Marshall WR CHI
Jimmy Graham TE NO

2nd trade with different Team
Team A gets

[Empty Slot]

Benched

Matt Ryan QB ATL
Robert Griffin QB WAS
Michael Turner RB ATL
Davone Bess WR MIA

Yeah, those were some stupid drops by that team that dropped Britt and Moss. Britt was a beast until he got hurt last year. And assuming he can stay out of trouble and injury free, he'll be a stud this year.

As for the trade, not really sure why it's getting vetoed. Team A is improving his QB and RB postion while downgrading his TE spot. I personally don't see Graham doing what he did last year this year. So good on him selling him high to get Matt Ryan, who I really like this year and see him potentially being a top 6 QB. Turner is old but still has some tread left on his tires. He still has Stevie Johnson and D. Moore, so he has depth as WR.

With the 2nd trade tho...i don't understand why anyone would deal Brandon Lloyd for Alshon Jeffrey unless it was a keeper league. And even then it would be a stretch. Lloyd with Brady on the Pats is going to put up so great numbers.

Thats for feedback.
The reason I posted in the 1st place. I thought it might be something fishy going on.But it looks like the owner just wants.who knows. :-S
And they are trading with more then one team,including me now.


Heres what the owner posted in the forum.
I had looked over the waiver list and I could not find a Sanchez type QB so I acceptehis offer. As for Sproles well it was a packaged deal which included M. Ryan. Point #2 I approached the owner for Alshon Jeffery for Brandon Lloyd trade, I still think Brandon Lloyd is a near top wide receiver, But I absoutely love Alshon Jeffery I would trade any top WR for Jeffery I'm taking my lumps now but hopefully my draft picks pan out :-b


Also they just Cut Brandon Gibson WR STL.
And since they needed A TE now.
I offered them Rob Housler TE ARI for Eric Decker WR DEN and they accepted the trade.

I guess I should have posted this over in the "Draft, Trade, Keeper & Waiver Questions" thread.As it looks they might just be new to fantasy football.As they could have put Britt 1/2 IR spots.

Wow, he accepted Housler for Eric Decker??? This guy has NO clue what he's doing!!

Hopefully it's a redraft league because if it's a keeper league, having a dumbass like that in the league offsets the competitive balance of the league.
