[QUOTE=Aereas;316780]There's got to be a way to change your name afterwards somehow. Otherwise that would be a pretty large oversight. Fab, the absence served you well. You have one of the better auto-drafted teams I've seen and one of the better teams on our league, imho. Although all of the teams except for 1 or 2 in particular (not calling anyone out just yet hehe) are solid so it will be an interesting, challenging season.[/QUOTE] You should go ahead and call them out. I will do it since you won't. Teams that are bad: copples16 *** Clowns bazooka joe Orton Hears a Who
Well aren't I just lucky? I'll take what I can get. I'm still ready to kick some ***!
[QUOTE=fabulous788;316805]Well aren't I just lucky?[/QUOTE] You made out like a bandit. Aereas used auto draft for all of 1 minute and he was snagging totally unnecessary backup kickers. Had he been on auto the entire time, he'd have been 10 deep with his field goal unit. :wink2:
All well and good... had my browser not crashed I probably would have taken CJ Spiller, not realizing he's a backup to one of my starting RBs. Anyhow the first WW session can't get here quickly enough :D
[QUOTE=Aereas;316831]Anyhow the first WW session can't get here quickly enough [/QUOTE] While having a solid draft is important, the magic happens on the WW. That is what separates good from great.

There were so many sleepers I wanted to draft but couldn't because there are only 5 bench slots. It would remove a lot of the luck from the WW and who has higher priority that week.
There's definitely some things I would change if it were allowed but with the free league there is no flexibility with the setup. Perhaps next year we can look at an alternative site. Adding a flex position instead of a 3rd WR slot would be high on my list.

CBS has the worst fantasy of any website I have used thus far.
[QUOTE=TheFeedMachi;316907]You can't change the settings in a free league on CBS? CBS has the worst fantasy of any website I have used thus far.[/QUOTE] CBS is fully customizable if you pay to get those options. It actually used to be 2 WR w/ flex by default, but that changed last season for one reason or another. Yahoo is the least customizable of the 3 and is not for serious players. ESPN has a dated UI and half the time I want to throw my laptop out the window because everything I click on requires "insider" access (which is why I generally boycott ESPN along with any other semi paywall websites.) In the end, I think it all comes down to personal preference. CBS with its stupid apps is starting to get under my skin, but in the end I still prefer it to all other free offerings.

I am not sure when you last played it, but I am in a keeper, PPR, and various other custom settings league on Yahoo. I haven't had any problems with ESPN's UI, but I will agree that insider access articles are annoying.

Auto Draft really did do me well. That's the luckiest I've ever been on that. Last year my first few players were auto-drafted and they sucked. I'm ready to win :D
Ugh. I came flat footed out of the gate and left a bunch of points on the bench. I'm going to need to catch a few breaks (and soon) if I want to get out of week 1 with my pride intact.

I left C.J Spiller on my bench and he outperformed both of the running backs I started.
I left Peterson, Miles Austin, and Alshon Jeffrey on my bench. The 2 WRs I have on my bench are the 2 that get TDs of course and Peterson apparently is fully healthy and not limited like I thought.
Chris Johnson only had 4 rushing yards averaging .36 yards a carry. Four Patriot players out rushed him, including a tight end. If his numbers doesn't improve, this is going to be a very long fantasy football season for me.

Chris Johnson is terrible. I would rather have Darren McFadden and his backup than Chris Johnson. McFadden may be injury prone, but at least you know when he is going to miss games. With Chris Johnson, you never know when he will disappear. I also didn't expect to win in week 1 because I used a 2nd round draft pick that I didn't play, but it hurts even more to see him doing well on my bench. Since I am down 42 and my opponent still has Rivers playing, I might just bench Ray Rice and take that guaranteed #1 waiver position. Edit: Never mind, this league won't let me tank. I guess I am rooting for Ray Rice and the Charges defense to have a spectacular game or be non-existent.
Seems like this week was full of unlikely heroics from relatively unknown players, while some big names did pretty much nothing (Welker?). That's the way it goes though. We definitely had some upsets this week, although I don't think I would have beat Wallflowers even if my team had performed to their overall "projected" point total. I would have beat the other 2 teams in my division though (cough, Bacchus, cough). Also we have some people using the league message board. Only half the people in the league are members of Vevmo so I encourage everyone to post there too and create some rivalries. The more we put in, the more we'll get out of it (although with the particular group of people I recruited, they're not afraid to point the fireballs in any direction so don't be surprised if you come under fire. Bacchus already let me have it) :D
[QUOTE=Aereas;317388]I would have beat the other 2 teams in my division though (cough, Bacchus, cough).[/quote] Seattle would have beaten Tennessee this week with their score and Tennessee would have beaten Miami with their score. What's your point? They weren't playing. Neither were we! No matter the score we all end the week with either a W or L and you look to be heading down the L train. :devil2: [quote]Also we have some people using the league message board.

I'm already spying the WW!
Just sayin'.... other than Wallflower's effort our division came off as pretty weak this weekend. We need to do something to fix that. I'm guessing Fred Jackson is done for a good long while so I'm in the market for a serviceable running back.

I like a good Blended Scotch Whiskey. Are you trying to say there is something wrong with that ***********? Heh.

Bringing up "power rankings" after week one doesn't even make me flinch. Your time will come. You will feel the wrath of the Sarks! Not to mention you are also 0-1 my friend.

As if Romo is going to throw for 29 points EVER again...
