    And that is what makes it a crazy game.

    I have a crappy one point loss this week, hate it when its that close. You know how they issue corrections well after a game is complete? I've been crossing my fingers hoping one of those comes through to give me the win over Arizona this week.

    Yes, that's me. I have basically been given two games for free. Arizona gave me the first match up when he did not trade Beckham out on the MNF game and therefore he got no points from him. Which allowed me to beat him by like half a field goal.
    Then JTC gave me the second game when he traded Andrew Luck for Stafford, and he sat down. Not only that: knowing he had Luck and had to trade, I offered him a trade of Alex Smith (mine) for Ezekiel Elliot (his). Had he accepted, and all other things being equal, he would have crushed me as Smith had a really good game and we saw what Elliot did at Denver.
    Moral: next time I offer somebody a trade, TAKE IT!!!!!! It will be good FOR YOU!!!!

    edit: and now, Skating has added Smith to his roster. We are doomed with this guy!!!

    Had he accepted I would've made endless fun of him...Ezekiel Elliott would be a first round pick for sure now (assuming he plays all year) while in most one QB leagues, Alex Smith shouldn't have been drafted...although he has been great so far

    In one of my leagues there was a stat correction changing matchup in week 1. One guy thought he had won by 0.2 points ... then Friday they took away one point from his QB and all of a sudden he had a loss.

    You're doing great so far Ponchi!!

    I wish I didn't have to play skatingfan this week. I like being undefeated and was hoping it would last.
    Oh Grigor. You silly man.

    Re: 2017/2018 TATFF Game Center

    There will be one undefeated player this week and one win-less one. At least.
    And I have said, I have been just lucky that my two matches were decided because my opponents did not replace players. very kind of them.

    You offered me a trade? I'm so bad at this.

    BTW: My Minnesota-based family assured me that Bradford was going to start, so they led me astray...

    That's exactly what I'm hoping for. Remote? Yes, but I've had it happen before and I think I need the cushion and I was so close, but suddenly Odell's "I'm missing 6-8 weeks broken ankle" wasn't so broken and he played last night and got a few points for them. They had no one else to sub in if he didn't start.

    To be fair to your fam, no one knew that ahead of time. Everyone was fairly shocked and it became breaking news Sunday morning all of a sudden when they noticed him not taking any snaps.

    As for the trade - I've missed those in other leagues. I don't always know that the system alerts you as well as they could and I don't think it's as obvious as it could be on the actual site. Granted, I don't know how it's done here, but I've had it happen twice on Yahoo and ESPN where I had no clue I missed a trade offer.

    Having him on one of my teams (the 0-2 one of course) reading that scared me into thinking he was going to be now out 6-8 weeks. I never had heard he'd be out that long, but the week 1 inactive was not a surprise.

    Bradford was questionable for the game and was only confirmed as OUT like one hour before. So unless you had your PC up and running and watching that page, no way you could have known.
    I have been going around the page set up for our league and it is quite interesting. For example, there is a COACH category. It simply calculates the points you got MINUS the points you would have gotten if you had played every single HIGHEST SCORING PLAYER BY POSITION. Guess who is comfortably sitting at ninth?
    Trades: If you click one player you want (look him up in the PLAYERS tab) and he is owned, there is a little button with two sideway arrows, meaning you can propose a trade. Then you have your entire team to choose which player to offer. But since JT never answered I don't know how to complete the trade.
    This FF thing is really for the unemployed. You can spend a lot of time going over and over information and then making the worst possible decision after all. More examples: first week, I chose Tom Brady as a starter. He laid and egg. Rogers played well. So this week I sat Brady and played Rogers. Rogers played well, but Brady was the highest scorer for the entire league (in play or not). So that got me a little award, the High Scoring Bench award. Which is a bomb.
    I mean, if I end the league at 2-8 it would still be a victory to me. The system calculated I would end 0-10.

    You still haven't traded one of them yet?

    Waiting for somebody to make me an offer. I need a dependable RB, so if you know of anybody...

    I'd go look and see who's had qb issues so far and make an offer.
