Yahoo!, please make it possible to perform 3 team trades.
Example: Team A, B and C
Team A can select players from Team B and C and place players from Team C on Team B and Team B on Team C. If Team C Accepts, Team B will see that he is the last manager holding up the deal. If he rejects, the deal goes away, if he accepts, all players go to their new respective teams.

100% Agreed. I often trade for player A to flip to to Team X for Player C. It cant be hard to do either.
If you are in a private league and the commish has veto power, the commish can manually process 3 way trades using their commish tools.

Not being able to pull off Multiple team trades is a shotcoming of fantasy sports and I am not sure if any platform offers it. In my opinion I believe this would give Yahoo a major edge over it's competitors.

Lets get on this...

Been waiting for yahoo to do this. Much better then having to set up two different trades and hope one team doesn't back out
Glad others have thought the same, would be a great addition
I would like to see this idea happen in non keeper leagues as well.
Trades don't always work with only 1 team involved sometimes it takes multiple teams to get a deal that everyone likes and agrees with.

Love this idea - have been thinking of it myself. Today, these trades have to be broken into pieces and come across as being imbalanced.
This would be a great feature!
Yes! Both ideas below would be awesome! I have been a Commissioner of many leagues and on a few occasions we have orchestrated a "three-team trade" within the current rules. However, it is EXTREMELY tedious and a major pain in the butt! Unfortunately, it's cumbersome because no matter what one team has to wait twice as long to get their player (Trade A must process before Trade B can even be proposed before it's accepted and processed) and it's not easy to compare stats/assess what a team is receiving or losing in a three-team trade.
Fantasy Hockey League Example:
Team A Receives: A. McDonald, G. Landeskog, M. St. Louis, J. Eberle, and S. Varlamov, Team A Trades: J. Thornton, J. van Riemsdyk, A. Ovechkin, P. Kessel, and C. Price
Team B Receives: J. van Riemsdyk, A. Ovechkin, P. Kessel, and C. Price, Team B Trades: G. Landeskog, M. St. Louis, J. Skinner, and S. Varlamov
Team C Receives: J. Thornton and J. Skinner, Team C Trades: J. Eberle
We had to complete this with 3 separate trades; unfortunately, A. McDonald wasn't even part of the agreement, but in order to make the initial swap between Team A and Team C we needed to include SOMEBODY because we could not complete a three-team trade. Team C was only trading one player and receiving two players in return, but those two players were on separate teams. Terrible.
Also, if a team decides to back out midway through a three-team trade, the already-processed trades can become grossly unfair.
Like stephen said, you can coordinate everything offline with emails and get with the commisioner to get it pushed through, but it would be much easier to do this in 1 step.
I would like to be able to trade draft picks before the draft. right now, you can't trade current draft picks prior to the actual draft.
I did one in my league. Emailed agreement to 2 other managers. Posted what trade results would look like to league. Had to do 2 separate trades.
Team A: Got M. Ryan, lost Kaepernick
Team B: Got A. Rodgers, lost M. Ryan, swap 1st rounder
Team C: Got C. Kaepernick, lost A. Rodgers, swap 1st rounder
Trades in order: Team B-C, then A-C
Would have been nice to do it in one step.
It would be nice if we had an option which allowed 3 or 4 teams to process a multi team/ multi player(s) trade. Right now we have to trade between two teams, wait for the trade to go thru, then trade with another team. This process would happen within the week as a normal trade and would actually be cool to see.
