What to do when a manager quits the league.

Postby mr.ed » Fri Jul 07, 2006 11:28 pm

I'm the commish for a non-keeper 5x5 roto league and the last place team manager just notified me that he is quitting the league. I have locked any movement on his team for now. My question is: Does anyone know an equitable way to disperse his players to the remaining teams (some type of secondary manual draft) or do those players (including David Ortiz) remain frozen in fantasy hell?

I would keep those players frozen for the rest of this year. There is no fair way to distribute them at this point of the season.

Non-keeper? I'd just put in his best guys so that whatever lineup he has will "compete" and not just give away points to whoever he might be leading in some categories, and freeze.

Good point, I forgot to mention that. Try to field him the most competitive lineup, though you don't have to update it every day. Just set it and forget it.

yup. there is no way that you could disburse the players and even make half of the people happy or make it even 50% fair. so don't worry about it... keep his lineup reasonably active and move on.

or, advertise for a new owner.

I'd jsut add one proviso: if one of his starting players hits the DL and he doesn't have a backup, pick up the no1 Yahoo ranked player at that position from the WW.

Honestly, I think this is more work that needs to be put in. I wouldn't bother updating his lineup ever once it's frozen. As long as it's agreed upon up front, the rest of the league can't complain after the fact.
