I hope this is an appropriate forum.
First, I am not a commissioner, but I have a question about ethics and figured commissioners were the best person to ask.
I am in a 12 person 5 X 5 roto keeper league. The keeper system is such. Josh Beckett was drafted in the fourth round. If I choose him as a keeper, I lose 2011's 4th round draft pick.
We use a FAAB free agency system, so no waivers. Bids are completed twice a week, at midnight EST.
So, theoretically, I could drop Josh Beckett 15 minutes before the deadline, then bid to pick him up for X amount of dollars. He would then, by league rules, only cost me a 20th round draft pick next year.
Is this something that would be considered ethical, or strategic?
