A trade in a Non-PPR league I'm in just went down: Michael Thomas for JK Dobbins.. SU
It happens to be between a dad (the league commissioner) and his son, too. I know Thomas could miss a few games, but I had Dobbins around the 36th RB and Thomas is the consensus #1 WR in the league.

I dropped a message in league chat that if the trade isn't reversed, I'm out now and will probably drop my entire roster for whatever is available on the FA market.

..and the dude giving up Dobbins didn't even play him last week, so it isn't like he's giving up a starter, either.

Agreed that's a lopsided trade.










One guy scored two TDs last week while the other didn't do shite.

Dobbins tore it up with that 3 YPC average.

you can't rush more than three yards if your TDs are coming from inside of 3 yards!

You don’t get to play the Cleveland Browns every week, either!

Yeah, that's bull shite.

I was in a league about 10 years ago where the commish blocked a couple trades I tried to make. Come playoffs, I was playing him first round. One of his friends who did not make the playoff traded her best starters for his bench.

The mistake commish made was not charging league dues before the season started. I did not pay mine, and the motherfricker had the audacity to get pissed.

The commissioner overdrafted JK at 33.

Part of his defense is that JK is a 3rd rounder. The consensus ADP for JK was 88.

This is why I don't play in that league no more Ted, neither should you. Got tired of TCM and his trades with his family members. His urge to win at any cost is ruining the experience! Smokin D told me just how upset you were

frickers acting like Dobbins is worth it as a 3rd rounder just because he drafted them there. Hell, he's probably running 2 or 3 of the other teams in the league.

I'll wait until tomorrow before flooding the waiver wire with Mahomes, DHOP, Woods, Drake and Beckham.

I have always maintained for years that he runs multiple teams in the league, parv will confirm that for you.

He thinks he could be doing it, but it isn't definitive.

Looks like the trade is staying. I think this was setup prior to the season. He drafted JK at 33, didn't even start the 1st RB he selected (he went Lamar and Kelce in rounds 1 & 2) and then JK. So, when this trade could be sent, he could pretend it was fair based on where he selected JK. No one, other than an Ohio State homer, is drafting JK in the 3rd round; especially sharing the backfield with Ingram and Edwards.

So he will have Lamar, Kelce and Thomas when he comes back and he will probably flip some other trash to the teams of his other son later to fill in missing pieces where he needs them.

This isn’t the first time he has traded with his son’s teams like this in prior years. This one happens to be the worst.

Collusion has no place in FFB. Sorry that you have a commish that enables AND takes part in collusion.

Actually if it is a keeper league I could see this being fair depending upon keeper rules. Hopefully it is a keeper league?

Before you flood the waiver wire, make sure the commish is in the back of the waiver order.
