Does your fantasy football league allow add/drop transactions after you missed the playoffs?

Recommended Posts

I have someone in my league that after missing the playoffs drop Nick Chubb to the waiver wire. I feel like a round 2 draft shouldn’t end up on the waiver wire all of a sudden in the playoffs especially

I assumed my leagues lock eliminated teams but just checked settings and one, a yahoo league is set to no.  Regardless, if I'm eliminated I "self lock" and don't drop/add anyone. I would think most fantasy footballers who have been around awhile would consider it to be bad form to transact after being eliminated...but then again it's a dog eat dog world out there!

If a redraft, eliminated teams should be locked.  Keeper or dynasty= fa/ww should be open

If there is some kind of consolation bracket or "most points for entire season" thing, then add/drops should be allowed.  But dropping a guy like Chubb shouldn't be happening unless he's hurt.  I hate to think the worst of people, but I would look to see who has the #1 waiver priority to see if they need a RB.... because something fishy could be going on.

to answer your basic question. do you have a toilet bowl? or consolation playoffs?  Then yes they should be able to still make moves. But even then, anyone that drops Chubb should be immediately sent packing from the league.

Billy I agree that it’s a basic question! I’m hoping to get enough response to this question that I can show the guy in my league that he’s in the wrong

Oh yeah and there is no “ toilet bowl“ or consolation bracket in our league. Also known as when you miss the playoffs.... season done!

We do have a toilet bowl and a week 17 highest score payout. But it’s understood in our long time league that those still in contention get first crack at waivers. And no one in our group would ever drop a good player. That would be highly frowned on. 😂

If there is no reason for teams eliminated to keep playing, their rosters should be locked so they can't pull something like this. I don't know how your waivers work from this point on, or how close of friends this people are, but if this guy and the team that might have first waiver pick could somehow pick Chubb up?  Punch them in the face and kick them to the curb!

Then I would take a look at who is #1 in waiver priority, especially if that team is in the playoffs.  Something fishy is going on.  No one just drops a player of Chubb's caliber, regardless of circumstances.  I would bet the owner with #1 waiver priority is in the playoffs and will pick up and play Chubb... and is giving the prior Chubb owner a little compensation for doing so.

Darin it was actually last week when this happened. A friend of mine in our league that wasn’t in the playoff was #1 on the waiver wire and he picked Chubb up so that he didn’t end up in the hands of someone who was still in the playoffs. #2 on the wire is the daughter of the guy who dropped Chubb, that I played and beat. She would have beat me by 1.5 pts if she had ended up with Chubb.

I doubt that they would drop Chubb if it was a keeper league or if he still had a consolation game going on. There's no doubt that he should not be dropped or any owner still in the running should not be able to pick him up.

Yeah, that's pretty suspect.

Been through a lot of shady sh*t in over 20 years.  Fix it, or leave the league and find one with realistic rules.

I'm all for consolation/toilet bowl stuff but don't mess up the real reason you joined in the first place.

We have a 10 team league with 6 teams in the playoffs and 4 teams in the toilet bowl.   In our league, we have 3 commissioners which also includes myself.  If anyone in our league would have dropped a player off their team while their team is eliminated, that person would get called out by almost everyone.  It's basically cheating and that person has no integrity.  Possible kick out of the league..

We're a keeper bordering on dynasty (5 keepers out of 9 starters, can keep forever at no increased cost per season) and once the playoffs start any player added is temporary, and only players still in the playoffs can add players. Those out of the playoffs are free to trade. They can also drop players, but nobody does that. 

 

Since its a keeper nobody like Chubb would be dropped. And if you're not in a keeper league, what's the point of dropping somebody now other than to put them on waivers for a team in the playoffs. If I were commish in that situation I would lock that team's roster, add Chubb to my team and then drop him when the playoffs were over so nobody gets an advantage, and I'd talk with the owner who did it. Thankfully we don't have this childish crap going on in our league.
