Happening in my league right now, Alfred Morris for Vernon Davis, thoughts??? I vetoed against it because I think Davis is worth more than an Alfred Morris and the fact that the person that is offering Morris has Aaron Hernandez already as a tight end and he should be back within the next week or so.

Or what about this counter offer which I like a lot more, Alfred Morris for Tony Gonzalez. I have no problem with that trade.

I think Morris will end up with more TDs this season than Davis, so the points should even out with the PPR factor.  I would not have voted it down.  I also wouldn't give up Morris for a TE unless I had some serious depth.

Honestly, I think Gonzales and Davis are about the same level tight end so far this season.  Gonzales is much older but it doesn't seem to be showing with as many balls as he has been catching.  I have Morris in one of my leagues and feel, and feel like he's going to have a great year.  He's been decent/good so far, and not that Helu is done, I feel much better about him.  Even trade imo.

Honest opinion is that you shouldn't have Vetoed that trade and here's why.  Morris is god and neither is Davis.  Basically, both players are so-so ....... therefore, who cares......

If your gonna veto a "garbage sandwich trade" your league is gonna be annoyed.  Also, your judging when your thinking about this guy also have Aaron Hernandez. 

Hope this helps

It doesnt matter what the teams are. The trade is more then fair and has no business being vetoed. I would rather have Morris which makes it even more retarded. You can find TE's around out there on the wire but you arent finding any running backs with full time jobs that are performing. Joke.

 So, because my opinion or anyone else's opinions that are in your leagues differ from your own means that they literally ruin leagues???? What makes you the fantasy expert????

When in doubt just let it ride. The two people agreed to the trade and thought it was fair in their eyes.

It's too early to block someone who may be giving in. Unless it makes a stacked team even more stacked.

An example of this would be like someone in my league, but his team isn't stacked.

He has Aaron Rodgers and RG3. I'd block a trade that would solidify his team if he were trading either of them.

Why would you block this? That is equally as stupid. The guy has two stud QBs. Obviously he does not need both. And I am assuming that anyone that would trade for one of them would also be getting an upgrade at QB which by definition makes it a fair trade. That is how trades work.

I realize that that is the point of trades, however, sometimes it's strategy. The goal of playing is to win, and if someone becomes too strong, there may be no way you can win.

I'm going to try to make a basketball analogy here, so bare with me.

Let's just say the Celtics had both Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul, but only one could at a time, and for all 48 minutes of a game, for 13 games.

The Celtics offer Rajon Rondo for Dwight Howard and it makes both teams stronger, and satisfies a need for both teams.

If the Miami Heat, LA Lakers, OKC Thunder, etc. had "veto" power, don't you think they'd veto the trade? The Celtics would have just solidified their team and made it harder for anyone else to win the championship that particular year, because fantasy football is a 1 year thing unless you're in a keeper.

this is insane. The point of being able to block trades is to ensure that the trades are fair. If two teams make a trade that is fair and ends up making both stronger due to addressing needs than that is not a problem. It is called the way it is...

Sorry buddy but stop being a chick.

I wouldn't have vetoed this trade either, but I would wonder about the fantasy intellect of the person trading Morris. Alfred is having and will continue to have, a monster year, with RGIII as his QB. Vernon Davis has Alex "wondering how to play QB" Smith. I am trying to trade Vernon myself. I wouldn't trade Morris for either/ or/both Gonzo and/or Davis. Hernandez is a re-injury risk, so maybe the guy thinks Davis will help him. Who knows. If I got offered Morris for Davis, I'd do it in a NY minute. I don't veto trades unless I suspect collusion and team-stacking.

This is the only time that a trade should be vetoed. Anything else is acting like a chick.
