Here is what I did in my league. My LM note in my ESPN league.
Houston..we have a problem
Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas has been damaged by Hurricane Ike and Sunday's game (formerly postponed to Monday night) will not be played there. The NFL has made no decision about the game but Houston will not be hosting the game at their facility due to damage. http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3585348
The game may be played at an alternate site or at an alternate time but we will know more about that this week.
If the game is postponed to later in the week at an alternate site then you can play your Texans and Ravens as normal. If we don't find out tonight what the decision will be then we can institute the following plan:
First, bench your Texan/Ravens player. Find a player on your bench that you can use in the event that the game is cancelled or postponed. Play that player but BE SURE TO LET ME KNOW YOU WISH TO HAVE PLAYED YOUR RAVEN/TEXAN play in his place. Alert me BEFORE SUNDAY's action begins. Should the game go ahead before next week's games begin you will be awarded the score of your Raven or Texan. If you do not inform me of this desire, you will be forced to take the substitute player regarless of the outcome of the Houston situation.
If you would be forced to drop a player to replace a player (as in if you have no backup Defense, TE, or Kicker (or for some reason have nobody on your bench healthy enough to play effectively for that spot) you can drop a player and pick a player up to do so without losing that player. BUT YOU HAVE TO INFORM ME THAT YOU ARE DOING THIS. Just let me know you are attempting to do this and you will be allowed (in fact forced) to reverse the add/drop manuevre after this week's game and you will be guaranteed your player won't be picked up by anybody else. I can do this by changing rosters manually in the League Manager screen.
I won't be able to accomplish this move until the waivers clear tomorrow morning app. 3am. But try to alert me asap that you want to do this.
Anybody who tries to pull one over on me will be punished to the full extent of the league, i.e JR and I will call your voicemail and sing showtunes until it is completely filled up with reditions of "Hello Dolly."
