Untrue, and why not?? Opportunity comes to those who make it, and why shouldn't the guy on top of his game and knowing what's going on have an edge over the guy who has a random number in a waiver list? (hence my team name :P )

and if it's event driven, the first to witness the event SHOULD have an advantage....knowledge is power....

again my other two leagues run like this and no one else cares in those leagues......

And in every other league I've ever been in, waivers exist. There are weekly columns/shows etc dedicate to the waiver wire...
It doesn't matter, we have waivers here... so no sense arguing for them :)

Why do you guys keep asking about waivers? They don't exist in this league, except when you yourself drop a player (or immediately after the draft for whatever reason), so to prevent collusion. I do find it amusing that three straight Jets got free agent picked up...I still want to see this offense against a GOOD team :P

I am regretting drafting Fitz over Locker and others as my backup in my other league. Kinda regretting passing on the Jets defense here too, but with my luck if I had drafted them they'd be giving up 30 this week lol.

it seems to be....in all 3 leagues (Brian did the math)....touchdowns and yards have been miscalculated, usually they stat correct on Wednesday....the odd thing is stat tracker was exact across the board last night....let them get through tonight and we'll see what's going on with it.....

We are aware of the issue where many players are missing stats from yesterday, and we are currently working to resolve it. Thank you for your patience.

As cheesy as it is, I love it... it's a nice wrap up.

In my other league I had quite a negative article written up about me even though I lost by 3.5 (but two poor results facing off - would have both lost to almost everyone else)... so I'll take it.

What's missing from this article? Matt Ryan finally delivers for the Sworn D, it likely won't happen again Posted Image

I didn't realize Romo was the third highest score of the week lol. Would have had the highest team score with AP, oh well.

My other league is ESPN, I wouldn't even want to read a recap of my 2.8 point loss to the defending champs there. My lead would be 'anyone named Fred (Jackson and Davis) sucked this week' :P I also left Ridley on the bench there because it's a PPR and I only had one other Flex spot I could have put him but now it looks like he's playing there too lol.

Made a mistake in not starting C.J. Spiller, who ranked seventh in the league in scoring and topped his scoring projection by 388.5%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league.

:rofl:

With how he was touting Spiller all off-season, then how he fell off the wagon at the speed of gravity....that's priceless B )

A little help here guys. I'm in a six team league, missed out on one of the three elite guys and drafted big at RB (McCoy, Rice, Charles) even though its a no-flex, two RB league. Rice and McCoy are my starters until one gets hurt or a terrible match up or something.

Not sure who to start at QB this week. I have Peyton, Vick, and Ryan. Leaning to Peyton now cause he's more of a sure thing, seems to have the best match up, and is playing in a dome. Plus, I am going to sit Jennings for Thomas this week at WR with Julio Jones and AJ Green also starting.

I drafted Buffalo SOLELY for the match up with the Jets last week. -2 points. Dropped them, enter New England.

I have absolutely no experience in 6 man leagues... I can't even fathom how match ups look :)

I'm taking you were the last to take a QB? Brees-Rodgers-Brady.... Newton-Stafford... then you have Eli-Ryan-Romo-Peyton-Vick, etc

I like Matt Ryan over Peyton Manning in the head to head... as I think both will be airing it out. So it's really which side of the matchup you want to be on. Vick is so hit and miss, I wouldn't even want him on my team in a league that small.
