Protest or veto a trade in Yahoo Fantasy

Depending on what type of league you're in you can veto or protest a trade that is unfair. Public and Private Leagues use a veto process with league votes and Pro League managers can file a protest with the League Office to initiate the trade review process.

Protest a trade in a Pro League

Pro League managers have 2 days to lodge an official protest with the Yahoo Sports League Office. Protests must contain a description of why the trade should be vetoed. Only 1 manager needs to protest a trade in a Pro League for the League Office to initiate the trade review process:

  • Reviewed within 24 hours, after the 2-day league review period.
  • Notes left by managers involved in the trade are taken into consideration.
  • Once the trade is accepted or rejected by the League Office the decision is final and explanations aren't provided.

Veto a trade in a Public or Private League

Public and Private Leagues require one-third of managers to vote against a trade for it to be vetoed. If the number of managers isn't divisible by 3 then the fractional number is rounded up to the nearest whole number to determine how many managers are needed for a veto. All votes are recorded anonymously.

  Private League exception - If your Private League uses 'Commissioner Trade Review' then accepted trades can only be overturned by the commissioner..
