Who's resting in week 17?

Postby Inukchuk » Sun Dec 24, 2006 7:23 pm

Now that the playoff picture is starting to clear up (somewhat), are there any teams that will most likely be resting starters???

Doesn't matter to me because I'll NEVER play in a league that plays the championship in week 17. Playing the most important FF game of the year in week 17 when some teams will rest their starters is just plain stupid. Play the entire season, build an awesome team, and then have to sit players that got you to the championship because they're not playing? Ridiculous. :-t

With Salary Cap football on Yahoo, and non-playoff leagues, I'd appreciate information on this subject as well. I'm guessing that LT2 will have much less carries than normal in week 17...go Michael Turner!

Dude, relax. Just because not everyone plays the same way you do doesn't mean everyone else is an idiot. Our commish forgot to set the season for only 16 weeks, so we're stuck. So either get off your high horse and give some helpful info like most others in the cafe, or mind your own business.

Anyways... Is there a chance that New Orleans clinches a bye this week? I know Chicago has home field wrapped up, but does New Orleans wrap up the 2 seed if Philly wins tonight???

Oh, and Merry Christmas!

Just stating my opinion that playing FF in week 17 is ridiculous. Most people (if not all) that I know agree.


Good luck!
