As you said before, I'd rather keep some blood on the waiver wire, rather than suck it all dry before the season even starts.


K, I guess my other leagues just have a philosophical difference then. We expand rosters in the offseason in order to both make room for rookie draft picks AND to evaluate them in the preseason. If the roster expansion in this league is for the sole purpose of making room for trades during the draft, then I understand & agree 100%. ;-D

And indeed, no matter when the cuts are, I am a big proponent of small-medium rosters. My largest league has an offseason limit of 26 and inseason limit of 23! 8-o


I would fight tooth and nail against decreasing the roster size. 30 is nice. 34 is something I would actually feel great about but understand people don't want to go bigger. No way I'm gonna sit by if we try to reduce roster sizes though.

It's a dynasty. It isn't about finding guys the WW gems, it's about finding them BEFORE they become WW gems.

Relax hoss, at no point did I ever suggest that I was going to push to reduce roster sizes in this league less than the 30 which we all voted and agreed upon. ;-D

So we want to vote on expansion to 34 for next off-season now? Makes sense....

I intend to reintroduce the things that didn't get enough votes this offseason for voting next offseason.

Haha, I bet the reason for that is all the camp hype about Thomas. I'd have taken him before I passed otherwise.

I literally prayed he made it back to me in this after he went so early in the other. I think Fury is buying the hype really hard - although it's not like a ton of 12th rounders are locks to produce anyway.

Thomas would of been my pick when I passed. He was my favorite TE coming into the NFL draft, his situation made it a bit murky, was hoping he stayed off the radar long enough for me to get him but when it came my PWWA I wasn't even close to available on time so I just passed....needless to say, nice grab ;-D

All rosters updated with most recent picks when possible.

Noteworthy player/roster updates-
Cameron Kenney, WR SD (Instinct)- can't add- not in Flea's system or on replacement list
Terrance Tolliver, WR, Hou (LS2)- can't add- not enough roster space
Kevin Ogletree, WR, Dal (LS2)- can't add- not enough roster space
Anthony Allen - RB, BAL (Thrifty)- can't add- not enough roster space

Remember, cut-down date (to get to standard roster size of 30) is start of first game of preseason, which is in a few days.

Also, remember to have a starting lineup when the season starts- kickers, TEs and defenses are the most overlooked.

Pre-Waiver process complete. All threads locked. Rosters updated with players. Standard waivers processed this coming Wednesday.

Please remember to cut down your roster to the 30 spot limit. Did a quick count and saw 2 rosters over.

Flea still won't let me add Anthony Allen, Thrifty. Guess not enough space.

For the record, want to second Awal- "it was a bad idea with the best of intentions".
