Owners on the outside looking in will often overreact to the "fairness" of a trade. I'll throw a scenario which happened in my own league between me and another owner (as well as the rest of my crybaby friends in the league):
Prior to week 3, I traded my Tony Romo and Lamar Miller for his AJ Green. It's a 2QB PPR league. He was 0-2 and in dire need of a RB, and his QBs were both more suited as QB2/3s, while he had crazy WR depth. I had a surplus of RBs and could afford to lose an underperforming Romo. Pretty much everyone in the league HATED the trade, saying that I was getting the upper hand, and it just missed the veto threshold (needed 6 votes, only got 5). 4 weeks later, who actually won the trade? Romo hasn't scored less than 20 and Miller hasn't scored less than 16, and now has the backfield all to himself with Moreno out for the season. And while AJ Green did score 16 and 17 points for me, he's hurt and doesn't know when he'll return.
Moral of the story, you don't know what's gonna happen in fantasy football, and while you might think a trade is lopsided and unfair, it might go completely in the other direction
. Don't veto trades.

I've got Parkey in 3 of 4 leagues and feel the same way
. Can't roster 2 kickers though so I'm going after Catanzaro and Prater. Catanzaro is on a sneakily potent offense, and Prater's performance last week was due to rust and maybe a little weather imo. Kicking in the Lions' dome this week I think he'll do just fine.Edited by Nickthestick91 - 10/14/14 at 11:13am
