f(x) = ax^2 + bx + c, where x is the amount of categories and b is gravity.

and c is the speed of light.

when do you give up?
project.
what #s will other teams finish at in that category? where will you finish? will your standing be affected if you add one player who will contribute to that category? how about if you add two? is it feasable to add two or will you lose too much elsewhere?

If I see I can't really make any headway in a category but if I have some players I can move and still maintain where I am, then I'll deal those players to people lower in the overall standings but who can then move ahead of people near me in the standings to take points away from them. A point taken away from them is just as good as a point given to me in those cicrmumstances. At this point in the season, though, unless you deliberatly were punting a category, it's way too early. And it does depend on the category. But for none of them would I think about doing it until the beginning of August. T

What category are you bombing in? There's got to be something you can do to improve it. Punting a category is not a recipe for success.
