So as a newbie to dynasty leagues - who whooped everyone's ass last year save for Thrifty ;-)

Is it common dynasty strategy to cut your K right now (like Instinctive) and let your roster play out through camp? And then just pick one up before the season starts? Seems like a good strategy...just want to know if that's what everyone does?

I actually only cut mine because he retired. That's why I claimed like 6 as soon as it looked like we were starting waivers. haha.

Some people do it if there's a player they just have to have and don't wanna drop anyone - have to make sure leagues allow you to pick up a K prior to week 1 start (some leagues (some leagues have a cutoff date after which FA/WW pickups are not allowed until after week 1)

We are down to only one team that has not made cutdowns to 32, I have sent a PM to that owner.

Once all rosters are finalized, we will post a date for the opening of the waiver wire.

Cuts have been made. I have asked Doc to take a look at the flea site to set up our initial waiver wire start date... please watch for his message in regards to that date. Thanks

Email Notifications
Hey guys, I was trying to find a way to get an email alert every time there was an add/drop, but I don't see it in the email alerts or settings pages. Did anyone else figure this out? I'm thinking Flea isn't set up for this. :-?

Guess not.

Question for the commishes - The website says waivers won't be processed until after Week 1. Is that right? I thought we would get one more week with waivers processed on Tuesday or Wednesday or whatever the normal day is.
