It’s not the NFLs job to find you a QB. Otherwise, all the Eagles games would be cancelled.

They are going to have to add a week 18 for make up games.

 

Then 19, then 20, then 21, etc.

 

This is a solution where you are moving too many pieces.  This won't be the last time this happens.

 

If this is the solution every time, this is going to create a lot of issues.

 

We were playing checkers, by the end of this it's going to be 3D chess.

Still nervous that a Vikings’ player will test positive - so far, nothing but there is an incubation period and takes some time to detect.  Today/tomorrow should be key days for the Vikings.  Hoping for the best.

Commish can't put players into IR that aren't designated correctly at least for Yahoo! or ESPN.

 

Oh that does suck. I will say, if this actually becomes a bye week nobody should be able to put players in IR anyways.

I know there was talk about playing games on Tuesday and was wondering how that would work with cbs sports scoring.  Its been pushed I heard but this is something that might happen all year.  Just curious if anyone has heard anything.

 

Well you found the right thread. You just haven't read it yet.

It'd be a pain but couldn't a commish add extra bench spots with the stipulation they could only be used for COVID situations?

He'd certainly have to to more work to check and make sure they weren't being used for other players.  But I imagine it would also be policed heavily by the other managers.

I've read it.  I see most people talking about yahoo and espn leagues.  Very little discussion on cbs.  Was only curious if someone reached out to their support team to see how they would handle this.  I'm being asked by other teams in the league.  I have written to support but haven't heard anything back.

I see, I misunderstood your point. My bad!

I will say if this eventually creates a week 18 scenario all commissioners should schedule all playoffs championships a week later. If this becomes a problem only solution is to give all teams a extra bye week extending schedule another week.

And what if there are only 2 games in week 18?

So what's the point of having IR slots if you can't put covid related situations in IR slots

Cause having Covid doesn't mean a player is on IR. Fantasy platforms should have implemented new procedures, but IR is for a specific purpose.

Nope. Why do that when there may be only 2 or 3 additional games? That’s creating unnecessary confusion
