Too Many Draft Pick Trades

Postby yoda87 » Fri Apr 29, 2011 9:47 am

I'm in a 12 team; H2H; 4 players (kept for 1 year) Keeper League

It seems like year after year there are a few teams, not in collaboration with each other, but a few teams that trade away over half their draft picks every year. Then during the draft they get a sub-par team, but over the course of the season they trade next year's draft picks for much better players, and the cycle continues.

Now I know they are not cheating or working together etc... but I feel like they are exploiting a loophole or loose end.

Is there anyone that has any methods, similar problems or advice on resolving the issue?

Thank you
I guess there was no curse... Boston just sucked for 86 years...

MLB does not allow trading of draft picks. The NBA does not allow a team to trade away its number one pick two years in a row. You can put any kind of restrictions on draft trades that you see fit.

My 12-team H2H Keep-3 league only allows draft picks to be traded in the offseason.
