It's that simple, but please---stop saying daily takes 'more strategy' and stop saying "I never played Weekly but Daily is better." .........
To each his own, but please come down off the pedestal with the Daily = ownage.
Amen brother. I've played both, and while it certainly takes more consistent time commitment playing daily, it's MUCH easier figuring out what you need to do in a daily league. Yeah, you have to stay diligent and keep paying attention, but where are the tough decisions that make this great "strategy"? Your pitcher is pitching that night? You play him. Your position player is getting the day off? You bench him. Just visit rotoworld and the Cafe every day and your decisions are made for you. It's all reactionary, not a lot of deep thinking there. Weekly league planning is far more in-depth and challenging.
I'm not putting down daily leagues by any means; they certainly have that more immediate, day-to-day excitement that isn't characteristic of weekly lineup leagues; plenty of folks prefer that, and more power to 'em. But there's simply more planning and more gut-wrenching strategic decisions that have to be made in a weekly league. (The rule re. injured players could use some refining, that much I agree with.)
And for those who feel the need to use words like "stupid" and "dumb" to describe something so many people in this thread obviously enjoy... way to respect the opinions of others in the true spirit of the Cafe.
