The League

Fantasy Check

Strategy or Stupidity?


Just about every fantasy league has at least one owner whose trading temerity makes you wonder if he regards his colleagues as dullards.

You know the type. This owner will offer, say, Matt Cassel and Cadillac Williams for Peyton Manning, with the premise being two players for one essentially means an equitable swap. Then this owner will offer those same players to other teams, each time trying to convince the potential trade partner the deal would provide depth.

The Wang Answer was the recipient of just such a trade offer: Pierre Garcon and Julius Jones for Randy Moss.

So let me get this straight: Garcon, the No. 4 receiver on the Colts (I'm counting Dallas Clark, along with Reggie Wayne and Austin Collie) and a menial RB1 for perhaps the most valuable wide receiver in fantasy?

I wouldn't trade Moss for Garcon and Thomas Jones, much less his unimpressive brother.

Then I learned other owners in our league were not exempt from this chicanery. Garcon and Jones for Wayne was on the table. So was Garcon and Jones for Andre Johnson.

I'm not sure whether to admire this owner for his moxie or to assail him for his impertinence.
