I mean, like someone saying..."OMGZ, Swiper...How did you pass on 'Player X'?"

This would alert me that 'Player X' was still on the board, when I otherwise might have overlooked him...And I'm sure whoever follows me would not appreciate it if they had that player almost fall into their laps, and then have them stolen because someone alerts me that he hasn't been drafted yet...

This doesn't really matter at the moment because everyone is undrafted, but when we get into the later rounds, it's easy to overlook people....

edit- The same, sometimes unspoken, rule applies to fantasy drafts....Cheatsheets might be passed out pre-draft, but it's your own responsibility to mark off the names taken....

No, I believe you are allowed to play people out of position...

I think this falls in with my RBBC argument from the jibjab thread....In my opinion, 2 RBs would acceptable as it is becoming more and more prevalent in the NFL...

Might wanna wait on an official ruling her though...

I thought that was what the bench spot was for. If you want to do RBBC you can use one of your 3 bench spots on another RB.

If we can start a RB at FB whats to stop someone from starting a reciever at FB and completely changing the formation? Is that kosher? :-o
