    AUTO DRAFT FOR THE WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I got Adrian Peterson.. Flacco...DeAngelo Williams...Vicent Jackson...Reggie Wayne... Jets Defense... Tony Gonzalez..

    lol i mustve drafted second to get AD... but i set my board up good.
    actually if you'd set your board up properly then you'd have been set to autopick and not rely on the Commish to do it for you :P else the draft would have been screwed for those that did turn up.

    Still we'll see how good your manage the team, or are you going to get an auto function to pick that each week for you too? lol

    Zeus -

    Nothing personal, but what idiot is responsible for this travesty?

    I can understand limiting the # of RBs and WRs to 4 on each roster. But with your minimums (2 QB, 3 RB, 3 WR, 2 TE, 1 K, 2 D), that takes up 13 of our 14 roster spots. When it comes to dealing with bye weeks, what are we supposed to do if one guy is on a bye and one is injured? We used to have a taxi squad and injured reserve, but we don't have access to those any more. And, were these roster limit changes (and they are changes) publicized before the draft? I know my top two WRs have byes on the same week. I guess I can work around this, but with these limitations I would think the rosters would be at least 15 players, or we'd have IR available to us to stash a hurt player and pick up a player for one week. I know PPO is not responsible for how the autodraft works, but the software should have accounted for these minimums. I'm sure some of these guys are really screwed now.

    This rule is going to force some people to either take a zero for a player one week because they will have to start someone on a bye, or cut a really good player because they don't have enough players to start.

    End rant.

    I can't even do that. I try to pick up a RB and it gives me an error because I only have 1 TE. I'm not dropping a TE. Trade doesn't go through.

    Well means some creative waiver work by people is going to be needed. As Webby was told it stops people hoarding players, downside is that means the rest of us have to work harder for our wins :laugh:

    I have 2 QBs, 3 RBs, 4 WRs, 2 TEs, 1 K and 1 Defense.

    No error messages for me. I don't mind taking the hit for the bye weeks of my kicker and D...not many points there, but if I lose by 5 or less points on those weeks, I might change my tune. LOL

    Looking at the transactions it appears that we do have to carry two defenses and two tightends? is this correct? It really shouldn't be since you only play 1 TE 1 defense each week.
    Yes, you have to carry two defenses and two TEs. Your flexibility lies in the number of RBs, WRs and Ks.

    BTW - none of this should be a surprise, since the rules have been on the website for a month.

    Why would you drop a TE? That doesn't make any sense. If you only have 1 TE, you need 2.

    That can't be right - you only have 13 players.
