I apologize if this belongs in waivers, but since it's a strange strategy idea I thought it might belong here. Kris Brown was dropped in my league due to his bye week. I have Jay Feeley, who has been dragging with the lackluster Falcons. My opponent this week has Dom Davis, David Carr, and Kevan Barlow, ALL on bye this week, so I don't expect him to be able to put up much of a fight. I am considering dropping Feeley for Brown and going kickerless this week! I am even considering using my #4 waiver priority to make sure this happens. (16 team league, so big drops are very unlikely). Am I crazy, or should I go for this?

My team:
QB - Leftwich, Garcia
RB - Edge, Pittman, Sammy Morris, Bennett
WR - J. Smith, Rod Smith, Toomer, Lloyd, McCardell, Stokley
TE - Gonzalez
K - Feeley
Def - St. Louis (doh!)
IDP - Barnett, Brooking, Archuleta, Farrior, Bulluck (for bye week)[/b]

Are you saying your opponent dropped Carr?? If so get him FASTTTT, drop Stokely or GArcia, or your kicker. The Hamster is coming.......

Uhhh...no, I only wish someone was that dumb.
Kris Brown was dropped in my league due to his bye week.


And doesn't this count more as strategy, and therefore bad tasting to the Hamster?

I don't even understand what's happening.

You said "I am considering dropping Feeley for Carr and going kickerless this week" and then you said no one dropped Carr.

Which is it and what's going on?

He clearly said AJ Feeley, but said he plays for the Falcons. I assume he means Jay Feely.

However, I still have no idea what he means about dropping him for Carr.

What? How can you pick up Carr if he wasn't dropped?

Yeah you are assuming the guy you are playing drops Carr, unless I am misunderstanding you. Which by other posters, I am not.

If he has no chance to beat you, expect him to not drop Carr and just ride the horses he has against you instead of dropping his best players just since there are bye week implications.

DOH!!! Hehe, sorry for the confusion folks, didn't see my typos. I of course meant Jay feeley and I meant to say pick up Brown, not Carr. I'll edit the post now with the replacements in bold. Yeah. I m dum. Poker Fiend = n00b.
