Need to pick one of these massive deals

Postby Malice_Palace » Wed Jan 08, 2020 6:53 pm

I posted a while ago regarding my league switching to a CAP system (largely to break up my team since people think the league its too lopsided in my favor and a handful of teams have said that they will walk if we don't even things out). Given that there is not enough support for a full reboot, we have come up with a formula, and as expected, my team is the only over the CAP. I am forced to move Dalvin Cook, Deandre Hopkins, Davante Adams (though Tyreek carries the same CAP hit as both Hopkins and Adams)
I have now started receiving a bunch of offers for some of my elites - some of them some bullshit lowballs - but best ones so far are the ones in the poll. Any advise is appreciated!

Is this a league with strangers? Not your fault you're better than them... I'd walk if they tore my team down because I'm too good... Best offer for me is Barkley. If it's for all of the studs you've gotta drop due to cap it's still a rip off though... Feel sorry for you mate

This is the dumbest thing I've ever seen. Whole point of a 10 team league is to have "too many" studs. Thats what you've accomplished. Now they want to implement this BS cap to take it away from you and it completely defeats the point. Wont do a reboot, only want to penalize you for their mistakes. I guess if you're gonna continue to play with these guys then you should take the Saquon package. I wouldnt be able to do it personally. I'd tell whoever was in favor of this to get bent and remember anybody that wins from here on out is a fake champ. Lol

I agree, complete joke your league is whining about your team being too good. If they’re forcing the league to change to make it more even I’d bounce. Do you see the Bengals, Giants or Dolphins complaining to Goodell trying to impose restrictions on the chiefs or saints?

As others have mentioned, this is ridiculous. You should not be punished essentially for putting together a great roster. I would be looking for a new league. To answer the question though, the Barkley deal.

Agree with all the above and the Barkley trade is the best one by far in my opinion.

Where's the option for "none of these, walk away from the league"? I'd vote for that one.

I'm shocked you are putting up with this. If my league tried this with me I would laugh and walk away with all my winnings.

That's not how this works. Just because someone builds a great team, you don't get to tear them down and take their players. You try to build your own great team to beat them. What a joke.

None. Cook, Hopkins, Adams is best bundle. Oh wait, misread that you're being forced into this by a new Cap hit

Honestly, my team 2 in sig (I have CMC, Cook, Henry, Kamara, Hopkins, Kelce) with my third championship in the three years of this league I'm expecting something to happen where leaguemates threaten to leave because no one else has a chance to win.

Thanks y'all for all the support! Wanted to make sure i wasn't crazy haha. This is hardly the first time this happens, during the season basically people starting boycotting any of my deals just bc it was my team involved.
So this is a league with my buddies, so if i leave pretty much league gets disbanded. That's not the biggest reason though, my main reason I wanna do this BS system, and then win the league regardless, which would be a beaut

So.... collusion? Even more reason to leave the league.

I'm in a dynasty league with my buddies, and have been in others over the years as well. No way would we have done this to anyone in any of those leagues.

Like everyone says. Just say you're the one leaving if they implement this bleep. It'll mess up the league and you won't have to put up with these crazy ideas in the future. In my league, one guy has won back to back season and championships. He's got a boosted team and since it's a keeper league (5), he gets to trade studs for early picks so he's probably going to be in the top tier for a while.. BUT he managed to have some good drafts, knows his football and other people have made mistakes in the past. Other have to get a good team, not destroy yours.

Weird situation...so only one team is trading with you? the 1.5 is in every deal.

I think the Barkley one is just fine personally. Kupp realistically matches Adams or close enough...Kupp is younger too.

Barkley is a much much more expensive asset than Cook...so upgrading there offsets some of the loss of trading hopkins for all those picks. Id counter the offer to include 2.1 instead of 3.5. Thats essentially 3 firsts, one pretty early, for Hopkins. plus the upgrade to Barkley.

even in a 12 team, I think my team 2 in my sig is better, and no one is whining there. there are about 2 other really solid teams in my case. just a string of good luck in a buddy league, its not that unreasonable to see.

I think you should join some other leagues. You've clearly outgrown this one. I would walk away from the league at this point. I have seen FF ruin a few friendships first hand. I would want no part of this childish nonsense. These guys need to stick to redraft, or be adults and sleep in the bed they made for themselves.
