I wouldn't tell him until after the game starts :-D . Picking up both kickers to block him is one thing, but if he chooses to start a kicker on a bye without realizing it, let it happen and take the win.

I would pick up the kickers. If it was a good friend, I would call him as soon as I was done just to rub it in.

That's true, in most leagues everyone has to freeze their line-ups on Sunday morning until all games for that week are played, and you usually can't even pick up players off waivers until Tuesday or Wednesday.

I would do it no doubt. It's his fault for not picking one of them up. It's not cheating. It's not illegal....I can't see anything wrong with it.

Yes it is - do you not bother reading the other posts before posting - it's a clear violation of the rules:

If it's a Yahoo league league it's against the rules you agreed to abide by by signing up for their league:

No owner will make any roster moves (including waiver claims, trade proposals, etc.) whose sole purpose is to hamper the play of other owners.

Thanks.
