      Dude, that’s bad personnel management. Mark Ingrham is more useful next week than Peyton Manning. Bye week management starts with the draft.Report

        Be generous; let JB add Tebow this week.Report

        There are competing philosophies on this. One philosophy is to draft the best available players with bye weeks in mind. The other is to just draft the best available players and take the hit when that fatal bye week hits. However, there are some leagues which require owners to fielda complete roster every week, which forces you to pay attention to byes at the draft. Those leagues suck.Report

        I do like to try and keep my bye week in mind during the draft, but if the players that I could get is soooooo much better than the next alternative, I still go with bye week hell.Report

    Yes, it sucks when you have a bunch of the same buy weeks. I tried to mitigate that and was able to do it reasonably well. Still, you get past this week and then you have very few buy to deal with.Report

    No mention of Team Pooh Bear trading away Matt Stafford, Jordan Cameron, and Roy Helu, Jr. for the on-a-bye-week Drew Brees? Malicious Prosecutors proceeded to use Stafford and Cameron to propel themselves to an upset victory against their former team. Had Helu also been in the lineup, it would have been a candidate for blowout of the week.

    Best of luck to Brees’ new owner.Report

    Last week was really frustrating. We were slated to beat Kazzy by 50 or 60, and then the bottom fell out as all of our players tanked in the same week.

    It’s like they say, that’s why you actually play the games. And by play the games, I mean sit on the couch reading while occasionally checking your FFB score.Report

      I can see a new segment for this too. The biggest underdog that won for the week. Now I just need a word that fits and rhymes with week….Report
