Leagues use 3-Year Trade Restriction program that provides a sense of realistic, binding contractual ties to a player who has been a staple on your team. Once a player has completed his 3rd full season on your team he falls under our Trade Restriction Guidelines. If traded, players need to be sent with minimum compensation in the form of draft picks and payment for the following season. Here is the breakdown of our Trade Restriction Guidelines and minimum compensation:

If you are acquiring a….5th Year Player

You would need to include in your deal a…1st-3rd RD FA & 1st-2nd RD Rookie

For 5th Year Players: Choose any 2 picks: 1st-3rd Round FA & 1st-2nd Round Rookie
For 4th Year Players: Choose any 1 pick 2nd-4th Round FA OR 1st-3rd Round Rookie
