Feels like every player in the preseason top 200 has either been on the DL or is out for the year. :*)

It seems like a lot of early rounders have underperformed and/or gotten injured, at a higher rate than past seasons.

I'm chasing down a few points to match or best the all-time points total in Masters. That was set by Daullaz at 132.5 points in 2011. I'm currently at 129.

nobody cares :^

And he's not in my lineup this week. But I brilliantly picked him up in Noobs2 days before his callup. I was actually taking advantage of the weekly lineups in the cafeholics leagues. It was virtually guaranteed that he was getting called up in Sept so I waited until the weekly lineups locked so I wouldn't have him clogging up a roster spot while not playing. I was very lucky that they didn't call him up 1-2 days earlier because then entire FAAB budgets would have been spent.

The Noobs league is completely dead and lifeless though. I tried trading closers all season (I had 4) with no luck and I have just started cutting them. Nobody has even noticed and 2 closers sit on the waiver wire although one is Mejia (hernia but still picking up saves).

I haven't played fake gridiron in forever. I think the last time I played, LaDainian Tomlinson won one of my Cafe leagues all by himself.

Fantasy Premier League is where it's at. It helps alleviate the pain of watching United lose to third division sides in meaningless cup competitions after breaking transfer records.

The n00bs last year had every reason to quit. :-D (To their credit, most didn't.)
