I may have said this already but if so, I'll repeat: for the record, the GWJFFL will definitely not be moving to ESPN in 2012.

Has Yahoo been considered? If I recall correctly, somebody (ukick?) was touting it earlier in the season. I've never used it for football but it works really well for hockey. I can't imagine it would be much different for football.

Whoa. Sat games too? Silly NFL.

Bring it on, Grumps. Bring. It. On.

Is it bad that I'm pulling for Hasselbeck to be hurt? Every time Jake Locker plays, Nate Washington goes off for 100+ yards and multiple TDs. The rest of the time, Hasselbeck barely throws to him. I could use another 20 point WR in my lineup this week.

f*ck, Moore or Flacco? Leaning towards Joe.

41 points and Tony Gonzalez only had one catch. Go to hell Matt Ryan.

Man, I get no consideration for having the most points scored against me this year. The good news is that I did get ranked higher than Old Man Depends, my regional rivalry.

Yeah, that one sticks in my craw. I'm hoping we can face-off in the consolation bracket so I can exact some vengeance!

Remember that Dallas and Tampa Bay play tonight.

Non-ppr league: Vincent Jackson or Antonio Brown?

I like Brown more because at least he'll catch a few balls. His QB situation sucks though, but the ground game should be bottled up, so they'll have to throw.

Jackson is a headache. I have no idea wtf he is gonna do.

I don't think we'll know about Ben until it's too late. So, start Jackson?

Yeah Jackson is really up and down. I have him in FFL1 and he has had three 30+ point games and four 5 points or less games, you just never know with him. I would start him over Brown just because he has more upside and the Steelers are traveling across country.

The deal-breaker with Yahoo is the inability to enforce proper free agent bidding.

They have bidding for waivers, but no capability to make all free agents pass through waivers each week. Waivers only apply to dropped players - everyone else is subject to the who-gets-on-their-computer-first-on-Tuesday-morning land grab.

At least, that's how it was before, and that's how it appears to still be: "(Bidding) does not apply to Free Agents. All free agents are able to be acquired on a first come - first serve basis, without bids. There is currently no option to have all players on waivers full time."

Shut your cheating mouths. Fleaflicker is the one true way.

Isn't that how it is now on Fleaflicker? Everybody goes on waivers every week, and for 48 hours after they're dropped, but one they clear waivers, it's FFA.

Romo!

I believe Legion is saying that there is no way to set it so that everybody goes on waivers to start the week. The way it works in my hockey league on Yahoo is that once a player clears waivers once they never go on waivers again unless they are picked up and dropped again. I had assumed there was a way to set it so that it worked like Fleaflicker but it looks like that's not the case.

I see. "Waiver full time" threw me off as that's how I would describe the setup over in our ESPN league where players are never first-come, first-serve.

Could there be a difference given that hockey doesn't have a set once-a-week schedule?

That's what I figured but according to what Legion said it doesn't appear so.

Seriously, 30 points out of my first player of the week! Woo!

Correct. On Fleaflicker, there is a setting, "Who is Placed on Waivers", with the option toggle between "Dropped players only" and "Dropped players AND all free agents after game start".

It's the latter setting which forces all players to pass through waivers each week, and that's what Yahoo is missing.

Ugh. Still 2 goose-eggs out of starting WRs through the first half. Eli needs to get his crap together and throw Cruz the ball. Likewise, Rogers to Nelson. These two games are opposite of what was expected so far.

Ugh, what a crap week for me all around.

Dammit. There's Jake Locker, throwing TDs to Nate Washington on my bench. Guess I should have gambled that Hasselbeck couldn't stay healthy.

I've got a 70 point lead going into the late games with one player left against three remaining for my opponent. But, he's got Tebow. I'm worried.

Well Jolly, odds are you got me. Good job mate.

Unless Michael Bush pulls off a couple more scores late, I'm going to be in trouble, with only 2 left to play vs my opponent's 4.

Yeah, I think I'm toast, too.

I can't believe Mike Williams picked this week to get a goose egg. He averages 11! I was *this* close to swapping him for Santana Moss yesterday, who ended up with 12. I still have a chance to pull out the win if Flacco and Vincent Jackson have good games.

If the Ravens can hold down the Chargers (and Mathews, specifically), I'll be a very happen guy.

That Lions comeback did wonders for my X team. I ended up with 174.9 points despite a goose egg at RB.
