Commissioner Corner Message Board
I am in a fourteen team league of team owners who are either coworkers (9), spouses (3) or relatives (1), except for one team run by proxy for one coworker by an unrelated individual. Team A, currently in 7th place, drops Cedric Benson after the game Sunday, where he had 7 fantasy points by our league scoring. Team A in turn picks up Jermaine Gresham, and they also own Greg Olsen and Mercedes Lewis. We can start only 1 TE. Team B, currently in 1st place and has #1 waiver priority, claims Benson. There are accusations of collusion by 'other' owners because owners of team A & B are relatives. The league commisioner says because team A has three tight ends, and because the owners of team A and B are related the waiver pick up looks suspicious, and is inclined to negate the transaction. Question: Is this a fair accusation and result or is it bull and sour grapes?
I'm not sure Benson's worth it anyway, with the sked the Bengals have.
Looks like a lose-lose move to me. One burnt a #1 waiver pick for an RB3 and the other just gutted their team by holding a trio of TE's. Let it go.
The matchup deal for Gresham doesn't fly because Marcedes plays Cleveland and they've given up more passing TD's than any other defense in the league. Not to mention Gresham is probably the 4th or 5th option in Cincy's offense. I think it's shady to pick up a third TE and drop a feature back. How many teams make the playoffs in your league? Did Team A have a shot of getting in?
