Am I just stupid?

Postby hawksfan896 » Sun Sep 07, 2003 7:20 pm

OK, this is my first year using Yahoo!. I tried to pick up Anquan Boldin, after his game was over, and I tried to drop Itula Mili, who had already played too. It gave me an error, and said I couldn't drop a player who had already played. Is this how Yahoo! works, or am I doing something wrong? And, if this IS how it works, why not drop someone who is expendable and pick up a crappy guy who is playing the late game or the Monday game, so you can drop the late guy and pick up someone who blew up, at least for the first few weeks? This seems way too complicated to me, and I don't understand what Yahoo! is trying to do with the rule. Yahoo! veterans, please hook me up.

I am not in yahoo, but usually you cant get a player that just played right away because he has to go to waivers, and you will own him on wednesday morning if you have a good waiver order rank. Anyhow check your league rules.

Once you have put a player in your active lineup, and he has played his game for the week, you can't drop him until after all the games have been played (Tues morning). However, you can drop a player that was on your bench; so if there's someone else you had benched to day and want to drop for Boldin, it should work.

My first Yahoo league, too.
I tried to pick him up on two different teams that had Ferguson, who appears to be down hard.
-- On the first, I'd had Ferg on bench and the move went through.
--- On the second team, I'd started Ferguson and Yahoo wouldn't let me do it. It appears that I couldn't move a player who'd been counting against my week's score before the week's scoring is complete. Maybe.

OK that makes sense. Pretty silly though, if you ask me. Between this and craptracker not working for me all day I'm not real pleased with Yahoo! to this point. Luckily our league bought it all at once, so it only cost us like 8 bucks. Of course now I would have rather taken the 8 bucks and got a big bag full of pennies and continuously railed myself in the head with them. That could just be because I'm getting my posterior handed to me in my game though, and now Jerry Porter isn't even playing (who needs an abdomen anyway). Good decision leaving Charlie Rogers on the bench genius. Anyway, thanks for the info guys. Oh yeah, and to the guy who posted that I have to wait until the waivers clear, he was a free agent. Your league is more screwed up than mine if you have to wait until waivers clear on a regular free agent.
