Other than that, I had a great week. 5-1. Stole a win in Thunderdome by sh**ing the bed slightly less than Kal did. But 150+ across the board elsewhere, including my autodrafted standard ESPN roster team (13 team league, ugh bye weeks in the future). Half my slots there came off waivers, including Dalton, Benny, Jordan Reed and the Carolina D.
Draft Steelers and Patriots as you will. If Yahoo is counting week 1, you can play them, even if they are someone you never would have played not knowing the outcome. You are also not compelled to play someone whom you would have played otherwise (If Big Ben scores negative, you can even choose to bench him and play nobody if that is your only option).
You can decide if you are playing them at any time up to 10AM PDT on Sunday, based on your knowledge of how they did. If for some reason, Yahoo is counting week 1, but not letting you edit in a player who played, as long as you post in THIS thread before 10AM PDT, I will use the commish tools to edit him in or out.
But if Yahoo decides we start week 2, we start week 2. If I cannot force it to count week 1, week 1 will not count. if I can force it to count all of week 1, I will.
If this does not make sense, ask. But it makes sense to me and I will abide by it.
You may not trade a Steeler or Patriot after the draft and have the new owner play him. That right is not transferable.
I am looking to trade a WR with a good contract for a RB without a contract. Or perhaps a bad one if that is not too bad.
I have Hopkins for $2 for 2 years, Cooks for $9 for 3 years and TY Hilton for $6 for 2 years. If you look at your roster and think you probably aren't going to win it all, now might be the time to start building for next year.
