ESPN bug? Is this cheating?

I don't think it is necessarily even an advantage to have him as a TE, there are a number of TE's (Gates, Gonzalez, Heap, to name a few) that could easily score more than him in any given week.

We've already had like 2 or 3 other 6 page threads on this if I recall...

I've said this before: If the website you use allows it I see no problem if you do it. If Colston is plugable as a TE than he can be plugged as a TE. If you were smart enough to have him before he was changed to a WR good for you. You now have a slight advantage over other teams in your league. I'm using him as a TE in 2 leagues. You know what my combined record is in those two leagues? 2-4.

My "cheating" is sure paying off. :-b

On ESPN Colston has scored 30 points, the top Tight End only has 25, that is crap.

If you don't like it, e-mail ESPN and make them remove Colston from rosters or something. that would force people to put him at WR.

Sounds like its time to call the WAAAAAAMBULANCE!!!


But seriously, I think everyone who complains about this is just jealous that they didnt realize he was a WR/TE. I say let it go. Seriously, the difference between him and any of the top TEs will be very minimal by seasons end I mean, if he somehow had a STUD WR in his TE spot that is another issue, but come on, this is a rookie 7th round pick who has had a few good weeks.
No drafts yet.

didn't read the other threads, don't care really.

imo ESPN was wrong to take the TE eligibility down. They guys is well within his rights. If he drafted the guy as a tight end and did not draft another good TE somewhere else (or even if he picked him up as a TE after a little bit , when noone else was willing to take the chance) there is NO reason why he should get screwed by this. as someone pointed out above, changing the rules in the middle of the season is WRONG.
