Here at DS, while Lenny, Jared, and Brett play Rolls-Royce Polo, we here in the forums use the latest technology and understanding to best answer your questions however before you present your logic by means of hopefully english, we hope you follow these guidelines.

Be extremely specific.

Your post should be able to answer the following questions:
1) How many teams are in your league?
Since values change greatly depending on the size of your league, we need this.

2) What type of scoring are you using? PPR? Standard? Etc.
Scoring gives more value to certain positions than others, we need this.

3) What does your roster look like?
With a focus on your starting line up every week. An example would be QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE, K, DEF. This gives value to certain positions over others, we need this especially if you use IDP.

4) Are you doing Standard or Auction?
We can equate rounds or specific monetary values to that players you want information on.

5) Use facts to backup your statements.
As crazy as your idea might be if you use logical information odds are people will ingage you alot easier and respond faster.

Here is an example of a bad statement: "Would you pick Brees or White in the 2nd round?"
The reason why this is bad because it doesn't answer any of the questions above except for the 4th which we infer from the "2nd round" comment.

Here is an example of the better statement: "In my 10-man Standard PPR league, 6 points for all TDs, 1 pt. for 10 yds rushing/receiving & 25 for passing. I am debating between Brees and White because I have to start 3 WRs compared to 1 QB. Which one would you choose?"

If you don't follow this, I am going to link this as a shortcut everytime so you can learn from it.
The preseason means almost nothing.

On a similar note, once the season gets rolling, please remember the Adds/Drops/Trades & Keepers sub forum along with the Who Do I Start?/Rate My Lineup sub forum.

Everclear laying down the law...Moss Yo being a smarta$$. It's official. The fantasy season has begun. Oh, I how I missed you guys. :)

Being TDY has got me behind the 8-ball with little to no prep this year other than what I've been able to see on Sportscenter. Damn Air Force. My first of three drafts is today and I have the #2 overall pick. What a crazy spot to be in this year -- especially when I'm not prepared.

Hope everyone had a great off-season and I wish you all well in your upcoming fantasy season.

I seem to recall someone having a similar problem with their QB rotation in our league, Moss :P

Thursday kickoff to Thursday kickoff. Thursday games screw up the timing. Waivers comes mostly after FCFS, not before, well except for pickups between Wed eve and Thursday kickoff.
