Fleecing

What does fleecing mean?

Taking advantage of a person through a trade

Fleecing is a term that refers to when a person takes advantage of another person through some sort of trade, much like swindling. The term is often used in fantasy sports when an owner makes a lopsided trade.

In fantasy sports, some owners are better evaluators of players than others. They do their research and can better forecast player projections. This leads to uneven trades where team owners are "fleeced."

Example

"He was so good at fleecing owners in my other league that I'm not gonna trade with him at all."
