  • Trading Players

  • Do we oversee Trades ? You bet we do !

  • All trades are subject to the Commissioner's approval.

    - One reason people play in our "pay leagues" is they want a reputable Fantasy Football service that has integrity. Many so-called "free leagues" have owners that do not care about their teams. Some of them have team owners that "secretly" own 2 or more teams, or get a "friend" to temporarily join the league to build up one "super team".

    * Please note that it could take up to 24 hours for the Commissioner to approve or disapprove a trade.
    (Note: Trades made on a Saturday will most likely NOT go through before the Sunday NFL games)




    When we review a trade we look for the following :
    - Collusion.
    - Fairness between the two teams.
    - Fairness to the league.

  • If we see what we consider to be "collusion", we will contact both owners and warn them. If it happens again, one or both of them will be dropped from the league.

  • If a trade is blatantly unfair (i.e. Calvin Johnson for Brian Hartline) we will deny it, and send a few questions to those involved.

  • Our normal procedure is to review past points scored by all players involved in the trade, how long they have been in the NFL, and what future value each has.

  • During the season, we also take into account the amount of points each player involved has scored last season, and so far in this season.

  • During the pre-season, we also take into account the amount of points each player involved in a trade scored the past 2-3 seasons. We also take injuries into account if a player scored an unusualy low amount of points in a previous season.

  • Note: We will always give a little more weight to Running Backs, as our scoring system is weighted towards them.

  • We also take a hard look at thier "NFL" status. Are they a starter ? Is a running back now sharing duties ? etc.

  • Players that are traded cannot be dropped for 3 days. (same as the Waivers).



  • If you traded 1 player for 2, and now have too many, you must drop a player. You will NOT be able to submit Waivers OR a Lineup if your Roster exceeds 18 Players.



  • We realize everyone "ranks" players differently according to preference, team needs, favorite players, etc. This is why the trade does not have to be "even", just somewhat close.

  • Be aware though, we will ALWAYS listen to rebuttals from anyone that has a trade disapproved. If you can both convince us the trade helps both teams, we will put it through.

    - In addition, during the season, a player traded from one team cannot be traded from the same owner back to the original team for 4 weeks. This is to prevent "collusion", and to keep Owners from trading players back and forth weekly.

    Note: You CAN make a trade offer involving the same player to two or more teams at the same time. If more than one Team accepts your offer, we will process the FIRST one WE receive.

  • Trading Deadline: The day before the NFL Week 8 games start.

    * * Be aware that it can take up to 24 hours for the commissioner to approve or disapprove the trade.
    (Note: Trades made late on a Saturday will most likely NOT go through before the Sunday NFL games)
