If you're playing with a league host such as Yahoo which gives Woodhead dual WR/RB eligibility, then fine. If you're playing in a league host which DOES NOT, why should the commissioner make some sort of exception? Just because Woodhead has such dual eligibility in Yahoo does not mean it should be automatically applied to all other league hosts. The rules of the specific league host you are using should govern it. The rules should especially not change mid-season.
Agree, play with in the rules of the provider your league is set up as - I play in 3 Yahoo leagues where Woodhead is listed as RB/WR & in 1 NFL.com league where he's listed simply as a WR.
In standard scoring formats, through 11 games palyed (since they played yesterrday) Woodhead ranks as the 26th RB or 28th WR...
After the full tilt of games this coming weekend, he'll probably rank somewhere along the lines of 26th-30th RB & 32nd-35th WR...
This isn't quite as dramatic as Colston's rookie year when he had the insanely stupid designation of WR/TE - considering he never lined up as a TE in the NFL...
As far as I can tell, going off of NFL 2006 TE stats, on a PPG basis, Colston averaged 14 ppg in standard scoring...
Top 10 TE ppg, totally unfair advantage at the TE slot - getting WR1 #'s from a guy who never played TE...
I don't see the appeal in starting a fringe, at best, guy in Woodhead - I do agree that it's BS for a commish to change elig. at this point in the season however.
