So the Zeke thing is pretty annoying to follow. Back and forth. For now I'll remove him from IR and he'll play week 1, apparently his status for the rest of this year is depending on this TRO which we learn about on Friday. So I guess I'll potentially deactivate him in future - there's no rules about that, right, bouncing a guy back and forth from IR as long as he's officially on or off the list. Pretty unique situation.

As long as he's officially suspended he is eligible for the IR. It is a weird situation but I think you have it right.

bleep dammit.

Hill is going to be EVEN better than I thought, and I expected big things.

Flat-out no one in the league has a prayer of covering him. He'll only ever have quiet weaks when Smiff does Smiff things. Which I guess could be a lot, to be fair... :shock:

Or both...at the same time.

I got lucky in this league, facing Kelce and the Chiefs scored a bazillion points but Kelce only managed 9.4

FCFS waivers don't appear to be setup correctly...when I try to add someone, that should be eligible, it sends me to the "blind-bid waivers" screen.

This is problematic for me with Landry forced on bye with Irma, Snead suspended for stupidity, and ODB "questionable."

So it's out there, I'm trying to add Vereen as a last-resort option for ODB.

I'm looking into it. I've added Vereen to your roster.

I'm testing it by adding Jared Abbrederis. If you see me picking him up and dropping him that's why.

It appears to be working. Sorry for the mistake. There was one part of the setup that was missed and it's not exactly intuative but we will have to remember it for next time.

I was about ready to curse Stafford off my team 90 minutes ago. Glad he woke up, important points.

Bleh. I considered four options to replace ODB. In hindsight, two of the three alternatives are looking pretty good about now, but Vereen was the only one that left playing him as an option, and I was hoping there was some gamesmanship going on because they're against the Cowboys. Hopefully, he ends up getting some extra looks in the passing game with ODB out, but not optimistic it will be enough.

Tough week to be without ODB, Landry, and Sneed because of the matchup and less info to base decisions on. (Zeke being "back" was insult to injury)
