That said, I probably shouldn't be sitting at 4-2 either.  I was looking over the stats and noticed that I'm a whopping 10th in scoring.  Tommy and I are the only two teams with less than 400 points scored against us as well.   :o  Pretty silly to think that I'd be 5-1 right now if the Jets had a FG in place of one of those TDs last night. 

Those things have a way of sorting themselves out (usually) over the course of the season... I was 4th or 5th in scoring and in 10th place last week, now I'm 4th in scoring and in 5th place.

Yeah, I can see that happening pretty quick given that there are 5 teams just a game behind me.  Teh question is, will anyone ever bring their A Game when they play Tommy?

Can you set it so that the Thursday night players are locked until the next week?

Nope, options are pretty limited really.  Sunday - Wednesday; First game - Wednesday; no waivers unless player is dropped by a team.  That's about all we got.  Nothing so specific as that. 

Were it up to me I'd just set it from noon Sunday until say Monday at noon.  I don't think one game necessitates it being locked down until Wednesday morning.  But that's not up to me.

Things will definitely get interesting in the next few weeks. Notice how Ryan, currently ranked 6th, is my "best" victory. Everyone else is in the bottom half of the league. After this week all my games will be against everyone currently ranked 2nd-5th. Murderers row for sure. And we'll see how me trading Fred Jackson will play out

Is this the week that Diddly finally goes down? Starting Tebow against a real team will do that to you. ;)

Ah Tebow.  Just a few complete passes short of fantasy superstar.

Being a Florida guy, I'm really rooting for Tebow.  I think it's an uphill battle for him, but it's definitely too early to write him off completely.  The Lions have made a lot of people look silly this year.

Okay, so I have Tebow and Flaco in my CBSSportsline league.  I've started Tebow the last two two weeks and while he hasn't been spectacular, he has outscored Flaco in both games.  Do I start Tebow again next week with Flaco going up against the Steelers?

I would go with Tebow.  He's gonna break off a run into the end zone any minute now and he really does not need to do too much more than that to have a good fantasy day.

I tried that during the Patriots bye week.  It was a disaster.

FYI I changed the waiver thing from "first game" to "Sunday" the other day.  That won't change when we can get players as free agents but it will mean that starting next week with the first Thursday night game all players will still be free agents until Sunday noon. 

I'm outta town until next Thursday with limited computer access so I hope it works.   :P

And it's official... I've got 5 RB's out today (and a receiver).   The only RB I was able to start is John Kuhn, who might score a TD if I'm lucky, but is no yardage threat whatsoever.  This is by far the worst off I've ever been in a give ff game.

2 TDs passing and 118 yards rushing.  Take a tip from Dressel!
