    I’m not sure, I know I’ve played this game on ESPN with healthy players on the IL. I think the penalty is that you can’t make any roster moves, I’m set as well but I’m not sure if I should let it roll....let alone the managers in my league aren’t happy with Hill getting TE eligibility in the first place.

    i just don't want them to like drop him from my starting lineup at 1:01 sunday afternoon or something

    only changes i would consider making are ballage and mike davis but cmac is unlikely to play and ekeler is still tbd. dolphins play the jets so don't need to change my defense either

    They never did that with healthy players on the IL, but this is a different situation. Did you read the rules I posted above? It just sounds like no roster moves is the penalty :idk:

    hopefully ekeler is brought along slowly and i will be fine

    if not i gotta decide if i wanna lose taysom for engram/ebron or ballage for ronald jones/melvin gordon

    I could theoretically ride my line up out for the year. I’m rolling with Miami’s defense because of the NYJ and CIN matchups, once the playoffs start they’ve got KC.

    Really though is this ethical?

    Guy in my league has Taysom in his lineup as a TE and it’s showing Taysom’s projected points, but they’re not counted in his team’s projected total. I think if you leave him in at TE any points he scores wouldn’t count towards your total, but I also have no idea what I’m talking about.

    I think he has to get in at least one limited practice this week if he is taken out of the concussion protocol, so this is a start.

    I could do the same with Taysom in my Flex. I’ll probably change the lineup on Thursday but for now I’ll leave it as is and troll the group chat

    I’m gonna tell everyone in my league that I’m self penalizing myself by not setting my lineup for at least one week due to ESPN’s mistake.

    When he was listed as TE it's one thing but I think it's wrong to play him at TE when he's no longer a TE if that loophole works.

    espn can very easily auto default him to the bench to prevent this. not being able to change your lineup isn’t really a punishment in many cases

    Curious what you guys think about Hollywood Brown's dynasty value?

    Worth maybe a 2021 and 2022 3rd?

    I need to win now to have a chance to make the playoffs. Should I drop the Ravens D for somebody like the Giants, Seahawks, or Rams?

    Green Bay has back to back good matchups if they're available. #21 D so far this year but against the Bears and Eagles I'll chance it. Picked them up last week just for that reason.

    Did this plus Hooper and James Washington for Brown. Hooper and Brown were throw ins I didn't care about since I never use them and probably never really will. Dumped off Singletary for a 3rd earlier this year so I had an extra this year

    Bought Lamar and Brown at big discounts form their value before the season. Crossing my fingers it works out next year or even down the stretch. Winner of the consolation bracket gets the #1 pick, 2nd pick goes to 2nd ect in the rookie draft and my WRs were dreadful.

    Need a lot of help this week -

    2 RBs : Duke Johnson @ Det, Swift v Hou, Mostert v LAR

    1 TE: Hock or Henry

    If Julio is out, need 1 Flex : Jeudy, and the leftovers above

    Swift Mostert (follow injury news on swift, Mostert should be ready to roll)

    Henry (this is for sure a coin flip between he and Hock, still like Henry slightly more given goal line usage and Stafford being banged up)

    Duke

    Swift if he practices enough and Mostert for me
    Hock is just too consistent for me to to go away from
    Honestly indifferent between duke and Jeudy if Julio is out

    Well, damn. I was leaning towards Duke and Swift. Hate Mostert's matchup in his first game back


    Woe is me rant that no one cares about

    Here are the RBs I drafted this year Mostert, David Johnson, Swift, Dobbins,

    They all have been hurt and as soon as one pops, he gets injured. It's quite annoying

    Swift and Mostert assuming they're healthy

    I'd go Henry so you're not all-in on the Lions after how they looked against Carolina.

    Duke

    Sent Roethlisberger and Mostert in exchange for Michael Thomas

    Guy I agreed to trade with is loaded at WR and is dead at QB and RB so it helps both of us. In our negotiations I asked for either Robinson or Thielen for my playoff run and guy offered up Thomas instead.
