That's a vetoable trade. In fact it should be vetoed in any competitive league, and I really am against vetoing trades most of the time.

Great for your team - that is a solid line-up you've got going on now.
totally ripped him off

eh not a vetoable trade with Decker now being the #1 WR. Yea yea Tim Tebow but still. Sproles have been very productive to this point. While I would never trade MJD for this, it's not vetoable. and if it were a PPR he'd even be losing out. Which I understand it's not.

Nice trade and team.

I agree with this. No way that is close to equal value for MJD.

standard scoring league, which this is, MJD 76.70 fantasy points. Sproles 69.10. Throw in Denver's new #1 target and it's far from vetoable.

From a name and ADP standpoint yes vetoable. But from a production standpoint, not even close. It's just a trade you would either do or you wouldn't. And to me it's all based on wether or not you think Decker can produce with Tebow. And to me I don't which is why I wouldn't do this trade. But it's a fair trade if you look under the surface.

If you just look at 6 weeks perhaps. If you look at the players and what they will do going forward I just cannot imagine how you can trade MJD for Sproles and Decker. Decker is going to decline in my opinion with Tebow and being the #1 guy instead of the #2. Sproles still has a time share with Thomas and Ingram. Its a rip off in my opinion.

Both Sproles and Decker avging about 10+ ppg throughout the year. MJD is only avg 12.4
clearly by your trade, and the quality of your team in a 12 team league, youre playing with retards. no 12 team league roster should look like that.

Sproles is in for a HUGE letdown. he was averaging over a fantasy pt. per TOUCH this year, which wont last. and Decker has no past to bank on. a few good starts to begin the season shouldnt carry much value. the trade was a total rip. whats the point in playing in a league thats this easy?

Obviously people who have no clue. I could see this team in a 10 team league but not in 12

So?

I play with my friends, this is a money league. I could care less if they draft like idiots.

The quality of the the owners of the league isn't an issue and you calling my friends retards... although that may be true, is offensive, so I will respectively tell you to keep your mouth shut on that subject. Thank you.

Yeah, the draft was kind of weird. In the top 10 i'm pretty sure there were at least 4-5 QBs taken and a couple WRs. Which played perfectly into my draft strategy.
I stock up on QBs in the first 2 rounds and pick a QB later in rounds 4-5.

The only way you could draft Rice and Andre Johnson is if you drafted later in the first and early in the second. But how did Rice last until late in the first? Especially without AJ being taken?

Trade seems like a non issue because you should win either way.

If it were me though, I'd look to package Schaub with another player and trade for a better QB. Surely there's someone in your league that needs either WR or RB help enough to step down from Brees, Rodgers, Newton, Brady or Romo to Schaub.

Schaub is decent. I have tried to package him.

I didn't draft andre johnson. I traded Michael Turner for him straight up.

At the time, Turner was avging about 2.4 yards per carry. This has not been a good trade so far for me, obviously.

But i kinda knew that going in, I was looking ahead towards the playoffs. Having two top WRs and two top RBs, and with this trade by playoff time ill have 3 top 10 rbs.

so im pretty stoked.
