Commissioner Corner Message Board
As Commissioner I find that this new feature has drastically hindered league trading as it is almost impossible to make the numbers work in your favor in a viable trade. The numbers are "projections" of expected play for the year and are NOT indicative of players' past performance, as in the previous year. I'm not in favor of this feature as it gives managers a questionable idea of fairness in a trade.
I have to agree. I don't remember the exact trade but in our league last year one of the guys needed a #2 WR and was willing to trade CJ Spiller and Aaron Rogers for a #2 WR and whom ever else his trade partner was willing to let go of. The ET said it was a bad trade. I wish I could remember who he was trying to get to run the ET this year.
I have to laugh a bit because it sounds like you are saying "I can't get an unfair trade though anymore because Yahoo has got this great button that helps all the dumb owners use statistics and figure out why my offers aren't fair".

You know, I expected your sort of reply. As you should know player knowledge and insight is key in making trades. The manager with the best knowledge SHOULD have the advantage. This has been a viable tactic for decades. Now Yahoo comes along and makes trades look bad for everybody. I tested it by starting a trade. My Chicago DEF for Denver DEF. Both teams came up losers in the red. Go figure.
How do you know Yahoo doesn't take previous years performances into account? I've checked that button out a lot and it appears as though the "projections" do take trends into account, although your opinion of how much value a trend is worth may differ from Yahoo's opinion of that same trends value. Most owners value their own players much higher when trading them away, everyone does it.
