A few Qs before the round starts:

a) is it a rolling lockout through the round? ie we can trade players in and out of the starting lineup game by game

b) Do any bench players count towards points scored?

c) is it unlimited trades picking from those Freely Available throughout the season?

d)if a player is a last minute out, is the score for the first bench player in the same position counted? (such that we order the bench in order of preferred player to be counted)

A)rosters locked at the start of the game, trades don’t happen straight away, you can sign free agents at any time
D) no emergencies, the NFL are much better with team announcements, they list players status on Tuesdays

I reduced the time for a trade from 48 to 24 hours. 48 is not needed unless the manager is awol.

Ill also block any trade that includes players like Ezekiel Elliot and other tier 1 players which i think are not fair. You need to be trading top 10 ranked players to get anywhere near the tier 1 players.

If anyone has any league management recommendations im happy to listen.
Its an opinion!

You might have to try for a hail mary out of the free agency.

Im sure there are a couple of break outs waiting to happen. I have these guys on my watch list. One or two of them are going to land as an RB2 or make a splash before too long. Its just a matter of who.

Im playing the waiting game with them at the moment, hoping not to miss the one that steps up.

So the player you are trading has to be top 10 as well?
e.g. Hilton (pick 7)

For

Mccaffery ( pick5)

Something along those lines. No one is giving up a tier 1 players

Ill block any trade where a tier 1 player is traded for mid range players.

Some of the players i have in that list i need to see how they go, ill be giving them a few weeks to see if they can maintain a role and put up good numbers. Lewis is one of them.

Im talking about the stars of the game. If unsure use top 10 but im talking guys who score big points being traded for rubbish players.

So
Hilton WR ( pick 7)
Bernard RB ( pick 30)

For
McCoy RB ( pick 13)

Would be a acceptable trade?

Thanks for the trade offer 1 Down but Barkley won’t be going anywhere & it would need to be 3 players who are better than I have especially as Howard is headed to Boston Ballers

6 trade proposals in 1 day is crazy, you would be lucky to get that in a season, I don’t check my emails so if you wish to propose a trade it would be better if you posted it on here, then everyone can see who is willing to part with who.
