I also want to add in that Lawerence Marooney from the Pats was traded to the Broncos for unconditional draft picks.

I don't care for that type of league. I like the ones where the waiver wire is reverse order of the standings each week or for every transaction you move to the back of the line. I think those make the most sense.
Yeah, I agree. We had our league the other way for years and it became insane after while. None of us could do anything on Sundays because we'd have to stay glued to our computers and television sets. When you play in a league full of hard core FF veteran players and you're playing for a lot of money than you have to do it this way. Otherwise it just makes everyone miserable knowing that one of their players could go down at any minute in a game and their hand cuff gets picked up. I hate the WW being all the way until Wed. morning, but at least you can enjoy your Sundays like everyone else.

McCluster

Not too excited about that right now.


I managed to get Ryan Mathews in the 3rd round of that same draft so hopefully i'll be alright with those two guys, because my bench has the all star cast of Cadillac Williams, Tashard Choice, and now Peyton Hillis.

Or maybe my receiver cast can bail all of them out.

In my other league, that uses full waivers for all players, I got lucky (sorta, considering I lost because of it) and snagged Vick to replace Kolb. Have Orton as a backup already, but you got to love that Vick VS the Lions matchup.
Kolb is still the starter on paper and they won't make that decision until Friday. I'm am eagerly awaiting that decision as Kolb was my starter in my big money league. I'm putting McNabb up this week for now, though I hope I don't have to root for him against the Texans

Yeah, Im watching the situation and am ready to throw Orton back in Sunday morning if I have to.

But with Vick tacking most the practice reps this week and all the heat the Eagles are getting for not taking concussions more seriously, I really think its going to be Michael who gets the start.

I hear ya man, and I wish I had a Ryan Mathews to replace Grant. In my draft I went WR/WR (AJ/Miles) then took Grant in the third followed up with Rivers in the 4th and Foster in the 5th. So I basically have one RB from the first 5 rounds. Foster is gonna have to keep it up if I wanna have a chance at the trophy.
