They made the trade because team 2 wants Eagles players. At the draft, his son recommended him to draft Gronkowski. I'm starting to see why now. After I vetoed the trade, I offered him Hyde for Gronk and he rejected it. If you ever need an example of collusion, this is it.
As far as how high I value Gronk, it's inconsequential. But it's at least low RB1/High RB2, Not RB4/Bye-week fillin, even if you throw in a low QB2 for appearances.

I leaning more towards just putting Gronk back on team 2's roster and turning on CCL. Since team 2 understood my veto decision when I explained it to him, I'm thinking it's his son that pressured him into dropping him. If team 1 really want Wentz and Sproles back, then they can put a waiver in for them or grab them off FA if his dad doesn't grab them.

Here's the situation.... 12-team Bar league, $25/team. Team 1 has been in the league since it started 6 years ago. Team 2 is team 1's Father and has never played fantasy before. Both are Eagles fans.
Team 2 drafts Gronkowski w/ 4th overall pick. Current roster:
QB - Mariota, Fitzpatrick
RB - McCoy
WR - Matthews, Jackson, Maclin, Dorsett, Fuller, Hogan
TE - Celek, Witten, Gronkowski
After week 1, team 2 proposes the following trade to team 1 (his son):
Gronkowski for QB-Wentz(undrafted FA pickup) and RB-Sproles(12th round pick)
I veto the trade on grounds of it being Collusion. Team 2 is fine with the veto. Team 1 goes off on me saying I had no right to veto, they didn't collude, blah, blah blah.... Says there's no difference than just dropping the players and picking them up (except for those pesky waivers---Team 1 is 7th on the waivers, behind me). I told him if he did, I would return the players to his team and lock him from making any transactions.
Get home from work today and team 1 has dropped Wentz and Sproles and Team 2 has dropped Gronk. Now, Gronk is set to come off waivers on the Friday morning while the rest of the league comes off waivers Wed Morning. I'm afraid some of the people in the league wont realize that a Gronk waiver request wouldn't get processed with the normal waiver request and if they used a waiver request for normal waivers, would lose out on getting Gronk, especially with all the injuries this past week. I'm 4th and normally don't use waivers except in situations such as this, just not as extreme as this. So there is absolutely no way Team 1 is gonna get Gronk on his roster.
Not sure exactly what I should do?
Do I return Gronk to Team 2 roster and activate the no-cut list (Hate it and have NEVER used it before in any of my leagues). I really don't want to lock a team from making transactions.
Do I just let the chips fall where they fall.
Open to any other suggestions.

Check your Waiver settings (Commish Edit League Setting Waiver Rule). The only way a player that was never on a roster would be on waivers is if your waiver rule was set to CONTINUOUS. You might want to change that to a more user-friendly setting such as Game Time - Tuesday.

Dalton, to find out where each team finished during the regular season, just look at their rank on the playoff page. This holds true especially for the consolation bracket where most leagues don't utilize. This is why, for example, you might have the last place team shown above a team that missed the playoffs on a tie-breaker...they won the consolation bracket.

I think it might actually be the owner doesn't quite grasp the dynamics of a dynasty league and is just better suited to redraft or limited keeper leagues.

I need an owner to take over the 4th place team from our 10-team H2H league. You will be drafting 7th in each round of the draft (non-snaking). Your keeper (0-5 keepers) choices would be:
Keep 0-1 - A.J. Green (1st round pick), Eddie Lacy (2nd round) or Jimmy Graham (2nd round)
Keep 0-1 - Matt Ryan (4th round) or Amari Cooper (4th round)
Keep 0-2 (1st player kept costs 6th round pick, 2nd player kept cost 5th round pick) - Doug Martin, Alshon Jeffery, Mark Ingram, John Brown, Jordan Matthews
Keep 0-1 - Zach Ertz - 10th Round
Keep 0-3 (1st player kept costs 13th round pick, 2nd player kept cost 12th round pick, 3rd player kept costs 11th round pick) - Tyler Lockett, Tim Hightower, Jeremy Langford.

Not sure of any FREE websites that offer a double-header schedule option. Most of the people I know that are in those type of leagues use MyFantasyLeague.com.

Split the teams into 2 separate leagues. Have a 10 team league (A) and an 8 team league(B). Next year, move the top 2 teams from B league to the A league while dropping the bottom 2 teams from the A league to the B league.
