    Default Is this trade seem suspicious?

    6 Keepers, 12 team league. Single QB league.

    Team A receives 1st round pick.

    Team B receives Matt Ryan and 12th round pick.


    Little background information:

    -Last season close to playoffs, Team B dropped Cam Newton while Team A was 1st in waiver order.
    - Team A has 4 QBs on there roster before this trade, Newton, Stafford, Mariota and Ryan.
    - I have sent several trade offers and messages to Team B, and absolutely not response on any of them.

    Simply looking at the offer at face value, I dont see a problem with it. Matty Ice has to be worth a 1st, even without knowing the league setup.

    I don't see how, but in a league where people don't know how to value QBs this seems fine.

    I think the concern is more ongoing collusion between Team A and B - working together for championships versus attempting to make the best deal possible with the entire league.

    Has anyone else questioned the trade around the league?

    Yeah.... living in Matt Ryan's MVP season... what do the experts have him ranked as... #14 QB or something like that!

    This is our concern... thats why I brought the trade up. Too late to do anything about the dropping of Newton right before playoffs... This will be strike 3 haha

    I'd PM both and tell them this appears fishy - at best and that it looks like collusion - based on the Newton WW drop - that's the bigger flag. Or you can privately poll the OGM's asking their thoughts...or go for it and post publicly your concerns. If this is a group of friends - I would avoid option C

    The complete deal works out to Newton and a 1st for Ryan and a 12th.
    Looks like A was very fortunate that B dropped Newton . Without knowing the League logistics and I’m not one that follows the NFL closely, but isn’t Cam Newton a top QB, one that would have good trade value rather than just being dropped from a roster ?
    Looks like more is going on behind the scenes between A & B

    Agreed. In single QB leagues, second tier QB1s usually roll for a second rounder and a prospect, QBs are difficult to trade in this format. Sup[erflex is a different story. This is an overpay imo...but not unusual.

    EDIT: What's foolish is team A rostering four QBs in this format.
