There are two elements which comprise the "Fantasy Football Fair Trade Rule"

When we look at a trade, we should (1) assess whether both teams benefit from the trade and we should (2) assess whether the trade is so unfair that it unfairly compromises the integrity of the league.

We need not look to element #2 if the trade does not satisfy element #1.

Explanation of Element #1.

Simply consider, do both teams benefit from the trade. Note: Element #1 does not contemplate whether one team has benefited more than another.

In the likely event of disagreement on this point, the issue is put to a vote. Majority Wins. Tie is broken by commissioner vote, even if commissioner is involved in the trade (perks of being commissioner).

We need not look to Element #2 if the trade terms do not satisfy Element #1. If Element #1 is not satisfied, the trade is vetoed.

Explanation of Element #2:

A trade may unequally favor one trading party over the other (often this is the case), however, a trade MAY NOT unfairly prejudice the integrity of the league.

We look at whether the trade would - if executed - cause an unfair advantage to either of the parties involved in the trade.

In the likely event of disagreement on this point, the issue is put to a vote. Majority Wins. Tie is broken by commissioner vote, even if commissioner is involved in the trade.

If Element #2 is not met, the trade is vetoed.

If Element #2 is met, and all parties have voted, then the trade is processed.
FANTASY FOOTBALL FAIR TRADE RULE ELEMENTS:

To Satisfy Element #1.

HYPOS:

1. Team X & Team Z trade. Both teams are made better. Element #1 is satisfied.

2. Team X & Team Z trade. X is made better but Z remains the same. Element#1 is not satisfied.

3. Team X & Team Z trade. Both are made worse. Element #1 is not satisfied.

To Satisfy Element #2:

HYPOS:

1. Team X & Team Z both improve their teams via trade. Team X receives slightly better value than Z. Element #2 is likely satisfied (subject to vote).

2. Same facts, but Team X receives much better value than Z. Element #2 is likely not met (subject to vote).
