What an unbelievable misuse of power! On sooo many levels!
A. The Commish should NOT hace extended the trade deadline
2. The Commish should NOT ruled out the power of the other owners to veto... and
D. The Commish should NOT allow this ridiculously unfair trade to go through.

Going from 199 to 201 yards has got to have changed some outcomes. I realize of course that he was not started in many leagues - but given the sheer number of Yahoo leagues that someone has had their game outcome changed.
He was available on waivers in both my leagues. I grabbed him in both. I think I mostly did it out of fear that someone else would grab him, and then defeat me with him in the playoffs. Also because he has a pretty good track record of being immediately productive when coming off a suspension.

Yes. The team sending away Manning had to drop his extra defense and Toby Gerhart (useless).

What do you think of this trade?

He is on my bench. I have Antonio Brown, Demaryious Thomas and Jordy Nelson. I'm trying to trade away my depth to improve my QB and RB situation - but no luck so far.

Hard to tell when I don't know who else Team B has at RB or WR. Can he afford giving up Bernard and Benjamin? In 95% of these posts there is not enough information to make any kind of real evaluation. People post: "Rate my team please." - and they don't even tell you how many teams are in the league.
That being said, I would have to say that the team getting Manning in this trade is the winner. Rivers has been doing great, but do you really want him in a fantasy playoff game?

Brady. Less mistake prone, more consistent. Ask yourself which quarterback is most likely to turn in a 4 touchdown, no turnover performance? No one who knows what he is doing is going to answer Kaepernick to that one.
Just eyeballing it, it also looks like Brady has the more favorable schedule remaining. The 49ers still have two games against Seattle and one against Arizona left. The Seahawks D has underperformed thus far... but you know they'll be ready for their #1 rival.

And if Andre Williams, Ronnie Hillman and Bell were getting starting reps all season that would mean something. But they haven't, so it doesn't.

Wow... that is a "who's who" of fantasy disappointment this year. Sankey has performed like you spelled him: Stankey. Richardson is never, never, never the player you want to put ANY trust in. I would go with Garcon.

All three have the potential to kill you this week for sure. Johnson has 13,000 receiving yards in his career and has never had double digit touchdowns. And, true to form, this year he has 1 touchdown. So does Tate. And you know Seattle is going to try to get back to form with more emphasis on the run this week after going to the pass too often against Dallas. And like I said, Lacy has to share with Starks. But I like Green Bay's chances of scoring a LOT of points... and that means a lot of handoffs and touchdowns to go around.

I would go with Lacy... He has the biggest upside. All three have thorns: Lacy has to share with Starks. Tate and Johnson have trouble finding the endzone. I always try to figure out which offense is most likely to put up 45 points, and that answer here is easy: Green Bay.

Oliver. What team is more likely to put up 45 points? San Diego easy. Oliver is almost guaranteed to get a LOT of touches. I had Morris on my team last year and swore I wouldn't draft him again. Of course I did this year because he fell soooo far in the draft (6th round).
The problem with Morris is that:
A. He comes out of the game on third down.
2. He comes out of the game when the Washington Politically Corrects are trailing.
D. He always seems to fall victim to vultured touchdowns on the goalline.
aside from those three things he is perfectly fine..

I agree with Paps... Vareen and Kelce stock is as high as it is going to get. Thomas is a monster. Always, always, always trade two nickels for one dime.

I wouldn't do that trade. Stacy did not look good against San Francisco and Tre Mason did - which means the rookie is sure to siphon more carries in the coming weeks. If Davis gets hot, you could trade Graham for a much better RB than Stacy.
