Trade Evaluating Program?

Recommended Posts

I am running a 16 team work league. There are 3 owners that have never played before and a handful of others who are pretty green.

 

My first thoughts were to not allow trades because everyone would decend on the new guys. Chances are they would make horrible trades and not only walk away with a bad taste in their mouth for fantasy, but ruin the balance of the league by hooking somebody up with an egghead trade.

 

I do like trading though.

 

Is there a program where I can put two players in and get a 'yes' or 'no'?

I don't know about a player program. I use ADP to judge player value. I have seen a program comparing value of trading picks, but not players.

I ran a work league like that once...4 of the 12 owners had never played before and a few that have played were pretty seasoned. What we did -- the ONLY time I ever did this -- was to put trades up for a vote. This was done to ensure that the noobs weren't being taken advantage of. Our feeling was that trading is an integral part of what makes FF fun...why not allow all to trade and make sure that the noobs get that experience?

 

It worked out very well. None of the trades were overturned, in part due to the vets in the league policing things as well as that rule in place to keep the vultures at bay.

 

Good luck DJ.
