You Be the Commish: Can Someone Commit Fantasy Football Collusion by Themselves?

Here’s a weird event that my BML’s ethics committee recently had to review for fantasy football collusion: One owner decided he didn’t have a chance this year, and sent an extremely lopsided trade offer to his best friend in the league. The best friend had no involvement in this decision, and merely clicked “yes” on a trade he could not refuse. Is this fantasy football collusion? Should this be reversed? Weigh in with your comments.

  1. I would vote to overturn this. It may not be collusion, but it’s definitely not in the spirit of fair play.

    1. A sound idea. How could such a rule be phrased? Maybe if the ROS rankings are different by a large enough amount? Or is it acceptable to just have a “I know it when I see it” kind of rule?

  3. It certainly sounds colusive if the trade isn’t fair. It’s like playing smash brothers with items on. Its no longer a game of skill. Rather alliance
