adding players when out of playoffs!?


Recommended Posts

Is it fair for other people in the league that did not make playoffs to add players off waivers in a normal, non-dynasty league?? I feel like if u don't make playoffs you should get locked out from being able to pick up free agents, so the teams that did make it can only add players. Anybody know any info on this? (ESPN league btw)

If u r in keeper or dynasty then there shouldn't be a problem i believe although I've never play in those type of leagues but if u play in the regular league i think it's essential to not drop or add players when u r out. Reason being is that it'll signifcantly lower the chance of possible collusion when between 2 ppl if 1 is in the playoff n the other isn't then the one isn't in the playoff picking up a viable player that's going up against his friend then it help his friend by lowering the chances of his opponent of winning

Ok but when do you stop limiting what teams can do? As they become mathematically eliminated or after week 13? The former makes the most sense by your logic, but it screws up match ups going forward. The latter leaves the door for collusion open and in fact, might could it worse.

Since draft picks are decided for the bottom 6 teams in our league  by regular season record, (points scored tie breaker) that didn't make it, it's an unspoken rule that non tournament teams stay off the wire. 

 

You can do whatever you want, but GM's have long memories in this league, so tread at your own risk.

Its an etiquette issue. Non playoff teams with no consolation prizes up for grabs or penalties for finishing dead last shouldn't be add/dropping.

So a team out of it by Week 8-9 or so should just stop even trying?  Where do you draw the line?

Guess I should've been more specific...once playoffs start, happy?

 

I hate teams who give up during the season, giving away free wins. Of course the same said team can go on and become spoilers. Its amazing how often teams who's been abandoned can have monster weeks because, fantasy. A lot of times, the logical start/sits dont work out.
