Commissioner Question - team rebuilding before the season

Recommended Posts

So we have a GM in our keeper league who went all in for the title last year and traded away picks. His squad this year is not great and he's in for a long season. Yesterday he traded Chubb and a 16th rounder for Fournette and a 2nd rounder. 

 

I don't have a problem with the trade itself from a keeper league standpoint. But doing it prior to week 1... does this compromise the league or is it business as usual? Usually we see the draft picks being moved closer to the deadline.

 

I think trading draft picks and blowing up the team this early could start a trend for all the teams who had some increased draft capital to start with to then go all out and pick the corpse of the seller to build a juggernaut very early, which sucks the fun out of it for the rest of the league. Thoughts?

Is this a dynasty league where you keep all players or a keeper league where you can only keep a few players each season ?

 

To me, you can’t allow trading of picks and then regulate how and when the picks can be used. Shrewd trading should not be regulated.

It's not dynasty - limited keeper (max 2 per team).

 

I guess part of it is the guy who traded for Chubb had a whole bunch of picks that he acquired at the deadline last year, so his team is already very strong. So there's basically 3 teams that are head and shoulders above the rest of the league now.

 

I just fear it's going to become the new normal. Kind of cheapens the integrity of the league who have people quitting on the season before a single snap has occurred and the competitiveness is gone.
