If James offered a no trade competition I would enter it. Regardless of the point structure.
I wouldn't go as far as no trades, but I've definitely always felt there were way too many trades available and too many trade windows.
When you can change your team every single day, it basically just becomes a matter of trading out a stack of players who aren't playing on a particular day for a stack of players who are, then trading them back in when their team plays again. This takes away from actually identifying good players as the winner is inevitably the guy who can manage his team in such a way as to have the most games played by his changing team throughout the tournament.
This was actually particularly hard to avoid in the recent World T20 because the ICC didn't schedule proper rounds early in the competition; some teams played twice before other teams played at all, meaning there was no obvious point to put in a trade window unless you waited all the way until the Super 8s to do it.
