    You should have an IR spot in your league complaining to Yahoo is pointless.

    Talk to your commissioner for IR spots not Yahoo.

    Bell is on the reserve did not report but is listed as Out so he can be put on IR.

    You know the insurance commercial that says "I have the wrong coverage." "No I have the wrong insurance company" well maybe you are in the wrong league or have the wrong commissioner.

    With the IR-Return there should be a few IR spots in every league.

    Jeff Hussain I challenge you to try it!

    Maybe you haven't played in free internet leagues much.
    I have for over 20 years & they are a joke.

    No one in the area will invite me to play locally because they know I have played for so long & they prefer to enjoy easy prey. How much fun is that? And that I want a fair league.

    I just want to point out a few things. All also depends on the number of teams in the league.

    There are always 2-3 that don't play at all. 2-3 that will submit a partial line up which is not playing.

    There are always lousy commissioners. That don't know how to handle those who don't play.

    How can you tell if your league is worth a ****?
    Actual points scored vs max possible points. You should be above 80%.
    Hoarders scores are usually lower because they have too much to choose from.
    So really you hurt yourself.

    Go back & max points the schedule would your record be the same? This is very interesting.
    How would your league turn out if you were ALL perfect.

    I am filling in in a league where there are hoarders the free agent pool is EMPTY & there was a guy who did not field half of his starting offense cause they were all on byes.WHAT FUN IS THAT?

    If you are going to hoard at least pick the highest scoring person at that position each week or you are wasting your time.

    It's a 20 team league (which are a complete joke) No more than 16 EVER!
    If you are unable to fill your line up each week your league is a joke.
    Nearly every league I played in I would run into an incomplete line up. Or the guy with a player who should definately be starting on the bench.

    If you do not draft appropriately you shouldn't be playing. But in a 20 team league the are not enough QB's so why?

    I've played in a league where the last place team did not play all season but did the week I played them & beat me costing a playoff spot. If they played all year I would have likely been in.

    Fantasy should mirror the real thing. Granted there are teams with 3 RB & teams with 5.
    There are still only 32 RB worth drafting.

    Just try it once & compare it to the other league you are playing in.

    If you read my other comment I have 4 other who play no other leagues now because of the competitiveness of this kind of league.

    Hoarders kill leagues plain & simple.
    A hoarder = a person not playing.

    If you enjoy playing in a league where each team does not field a complete line up you are wasting your time & your (free) league is a joke.

    You will all hate what I say UNTIL you try it.

    I made a league with basic starters 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF with 1 bench player at each position at all times. 10 team league.

    I get "it's to restrictive" all the time but there are more free agents than in a league the same people will play in. So how that is restrictive is beyond me.

    Why my other owners like it:
    No hoarders
    Full line ups each week
    a competitive game each week
    a competitive league to where all teams are in it until the final week (too much parody for most)
    and that is what it is all about a competitive league.

    Granted this is primarily an internet league problem not so much with a local league where everyone knows everyone.

    I do have openings in my league if interested. (Courtland Lee)

    They don't do this in football so why baseball?

    Yahoo didn't have L. Thomas NYJ listed as a FB even though he scored points.

    You don't have punters listed as Kickers when they have to step in.

    Supposedly he is a pitcher so he should be listed as one until he gets a certain amount of AB's
