Yes you are Al... Yes you are.

Just realized I never put Foster back in. That's a winning strategy... Bench your best player for a change of pace, struggling 2nd string RB from a sh!tty team :)

Wait, no it's not.


It's a winning strategy when Doug Martin can win games by himself :argh: Jesus Christ, I can't ever remember a RB putting up a 50-spot in fantasy :blink:

Now I can't complain about some fool in my dynasty league giving away Rodgers for Flacco and Martin to a team in my division.

Game 1 of the Vick resurrection starts tomorrow. I hope I don't jinx him, but I think he is going to rip it up after the bye week.

I'm pretty sure Martin played QB this week. 272 yards APY, 4 tds... Not too shabby
AP had a pretty good day as well for you

I really hope so as a Birds fan... Who needs a win most importantly... Preferably with McCoy only meeting his yahoo projection, not exceeding... Giving me a .23 win. I'd rather a Birds win, but winning both would be great

AP and the Boys D at least gave me a chance tonight. Not a great chance though since Fat Andy coaches like he has Vick on his fantasy team and plays against McCoy every week :P

Huge fantasy week to either make the the playoff race tight, or distant...

Half the league is involved in 5-4 vs 4-5 matchups:

#4 New Jersey Swamps (980.88, 5-4) vs #10 VALUE = REPEAT (776.60, 4-5)
#6 Big Blue (782.24, 5-4) vs #9 MantaRays (800.62, 4-5)
#5 Long Island Iced Z (941.22, 5-4) vs #7 Sworn Defenders (911.30, 4-5)

If all the 4-5 teams win... and #8 Waiver Wire Wining (4-5, 822.24) is not spoiled by #12 Masked Marauders (803.02, 1-8)... we'd be looking at 7 5-5 teams. That's some parity.


And up top a battle for a bye:
#1 Dynamo Nation (1009.74, 7-2) vs #3 Wack MC's (873.06, 6-3)

It really should be GM approved now, with a day or so for any valid complaints.
Especially now that the NFL is Thurs-Mon

Your trade, no... but it could create issues. Also, if a player is playing Thursday this trade would have been effective for week 11, not 10.
Fortunately though we are quickly reaching the trade deadline.

But, trading players also notoriously messes with set rosters.

Just so long as you get your trade through, believe me that's not a definite after the AP-Brees fiasco a couple years ago.

It's always been two days though, and two days isn't a lot of time in the middle of the week. And it helps in the case of legit questionable trades.

That said, I do it the other way in hockey (speaking of which, it's gonna be tough to put together a big league this year and have a draft that most can make), only asking the manager his reason for a trade if I don't like it.

I don't think there's any fault in the four vote overturn a trade system though...unless teams reject trades for selfish reasons only ala said controversial trade a couple years back.

I think its different in football though (the delay). It's a weekly sport... and when games were just Sunday/Monday it was different. Having a Thursday game screws with it a bit. Say a need becomes apparent on Monday night (ie an injury). You need to complete a trade on Tuesday (I think... perhaps even Monday?) if any player involved is playing on Thursday, or it would get pushed to the following week for effective date.

It's not a pressing concern, but as always... I like to address things before they become pressing... I know Crasher likes to deal with it in the moment.

In this case, it's unlikely to matter as we are nearing the deadline. But perhaps, next year we should adopt Hasan's style. GM approved following up on questionable trades, etc. So if a trade is legit, to push it right away... so everyone can get their players, set rosters, etc.

Of course the year I win, the benefit of draft order matters less :)

This happens in my money league too....it's a smaller issue then you'd think....again, we can always vote on the trade process time in the off-season :)

(it would be unfair to change that after 10 weeks anyway mid-season)

the best one was I got "stuck" with Jamaal Charles last week....he did stink and I did play him....but he got hurt in the 4th Quarter and I still feel all the better getting the Redskin back for the rest of the season B )

As I said, next year. And agreed, it only affects trades if any of the players are in Thursday games... It cuts the trade window a bit.

And if it's a vote... make it Boolean like. Not the 3-4 choice options that confuse the topic.

Oh, there'll be a hockey league. It probably won't be 16-20 teams with the limited time we'll likely have from the end of the lockout (assuming that happens) till the start of the regular season to recruit. The draft would likely be the night before the season to allow enough time to fill up the league as much as possible.

That's what I'm talking about what shouldn't happen.

It should be:

1: league vote
2: Commish approve

Then if 1 wins, you do the duration vote.
