Yeah - really need more info about your league to answer. Some thoughts on different types of leagues:
- In a redraft league, definite veto.
- In a straight keeper or dynasty league, definite veto.
- In a league where contracts are used where you can keep Jones cheaper and for more years than Bedard, it could be fine
- In a league where you forfeit draft picks to keep players, if you can keep Jones for a low pick and Bedard for high pick, it could be fine.
It all depends.
