Default 12-man League

QB Ryan Fitzpatrick + WR Jabar Gaffney
WR Robert Meachem.

Who wins? Should it be vetoed?

Thanks for your input.

Can you post both theams current players? I'm having a hard time understanding this trade frankly.

Gaffney has zero value, and Fitzpatrick > Meachem.

I have a hard time believing Fitzpatrick couldn't net someone better than Meachem but to be frank, in a standard league with 1 QB starting I don't really have an issue with the trade.

Fitzpatrick is honestly still a fringe starter in a 12 team, 1 QB league...he's still pretty unproven, despite the fast start.

Thanks guys,

Basically, the one getting Fitz has Schaub and the other has Tom Brady w/ Heinz Ward/Antonio Brown for his WR3. The trade had Henne bundled w/Meachem but I left him off due to IR.

I questioned the trade in our league but nobody said a word for or against it. I voted against it, but I don't know if other ppl did also or if the commish just nixed it.

Hearing ppls opinions, I can see how it's not cheating, but, Fitz can easily land a better WR.

meachem does has 3 TD's already...gotta remember that

and in a standard league, if you don't have Rodgers, Brady, Vick, Stafford or Brees QB's 6-15 are all pretty equal so Fitzpatrick has marginal value...

(which is why I like 2 QB leagues a lot more than 1 QB leagues...more strategy)
