Dumb luck here too.  My QB has been underperforming, gets hurt and my star running back (NOT Tomlinson) had a bye week, yet I still get 46 points.  Good kicker, lousy D (but three sacks and an interception).  Javon Walker decided to catch the ball in the right place is about the best explanation. 

Next week will be interesting.  OCB is mine, baby.  (I hope)

Is the Yahoo stat tracking system pretty good?  I'm not sure that was clear as for what I'm asking about - but I've got Michael Pittman as a RB and he was suspended - but is back now, joined the team Monday morning and will play this weekend - but he's still listed as N/A on my page... I need him badly now that Garner went out for the year with a knee injury...

Should I be worried about this or is it a common thing for that designation to go away later on?

Those notations next to the player names can be misleading.  Best thing to do is click on the player's name and then look at the News & Notes.  That way you get the details about whether or not a player is active, injured, etc.

Overall the best thing to do is check a variety of sources, like ESPN.com, NFL.com or the team's official page.

Right on.   I know for a fact that he'll be playing on Sunday and isn't injured or suspended.  I was just worried that maybe Yahoo wouldn't recognize him if the n/a is appearing by his name.

We'll find out soon enough I guess...

Dear mr. administrator. 

Please tell me why our football pool will not:

a) let me view the league results, even after signing in
and
b) allow me to change the players.  Well, it lets me change them, but even after submitting them multiple times they are not changed when I re-enter the site. 

Trying to start the following, but it will only allow last week's lineup :o

QB - Leftwich (may go with Volek/McNair, depending on who's starting)
WR - Walker
WR - Stallworth
RB - Tomlinson
RB - Martin
TE - Crumpler
K - Akers
D - KC

Help. :-\

Looks like that is what your line-up is...might be some server issues at Yahoo

Groovy thanks.  Thought I'd point it out quick enough, mostly because I'm likely to forget to make my picks later in the week.  I'd have checked at home later too. 

Have to try and stay close to Nick :P

Grrr, make a damn decision, Volek or McNair?   :-\

I opted out of Leftwich because I think they'll get hammered by the Colts.  I thought Tenn had a much better shot against SD, but who's starting????

Exactly what I was thinking.  Jim, you still have access?

Oh, and have I said thank goodness for kickers?

Wow...some less than inspiring point totals this week...

I can't believe I'm still in the lead with just over 24 points...  Although all HoloElvis needs to win is for Issac Bruce to score a TD... with a little over a quarter left to play...  Hopefully since they're already 24-0 they won't be throwing too much...

I'd have already lost if it weren't for the fact that he's got no QB playing this week...
