Right. I have 7 RBs in a league that starts 2. I'm preventing others from having any of them, and I like it that way.
Yep, chalk another up for the "it's ok" side. It's all strategy.
In one league I'm in, the four playoff teams have already clinched the playoffs. The first place team is up by a game, and if he loses he's still gonna be in first thanks to his division tie breaker. I'm in fourth place, and I win I can move up to third. The catch is, the first place guy's team is struggling, and has been on a bit of a losing streak after being rock solid the whole season. I'm sitting some players this week in an effort to get the better playoff matchup. Strategy.
