    Looks like there's something wrong with the scoring system on Yahoo Sports. It seems to be attributing all points correctly according to the league settings, except for any TDs scored by any player. Applies to all matchups.

    Hopefully this gets updated! I looked on Twitter and everyone seems to be complaining about this, so I'm sure it'll get solved soon.

    Yup - definitely liking the upside of my WRs! Need them to cover up for my shaky RBs outside of McCoy.

    That sounds wholly in the past tense. :twisted:

    Either that or you sell high now.

    That is past tense, I went ahead and took him off the trading block. I was not quite expecting him to put up almost twice as many points as Cam Newton in week 1.

    That is cool, here is the review of my loss. If I had only started RG3 . . .

    Thanks for posting that link jbf#1. Very cool feature.

    I would have added playing NE's defense instead of GB's as a smooth move. Or a Pats fan move... :)

    And Ridley was a surprise in terms of FF and as a Pats fan.

    Ha! Tell me about it. Brandon Marshall ended up with nothing as a result, though Marshall should have at least caught that ball in the end zone to get to 10 fantasy points.

    Only real positives from the game being Benson, Packers D and Crosby.

    Can't get a shot at anything on the waiver wire; it's definitely not so bad to take a big loss in the first week. Not bad to pick up a RB drafted in round 6 in week 1 (Jonathan Stewart).

    Hoping for the best today with s smith's injury. And Carolina should be playing with a chip on their shoulder at home against no. So he's starting for me.

    Starting Cutler over Vick and Mike Bush over DeAngelo has ended up costing me this game. Still I feel good about my team, even at 0-2. Not time to panic just yet. The Raiders on the other hand...:?

    Chris Johnson and Ahmad Bradshaw combined for a grand total of 5 points. ugh. And Bradshaw to have an MRI on his neck today. Not a good week for my RBs!

    So happy I got some advice from my uncle who is a big time fantasy player haah.

    I just need Matt Prater or T. Gonzalez to do something for me to win the matchup...

    LanEvo! You stole Andre Brown from me! I thought that me being 0-2 would put me low enough to pick him up off of waivers. :mad:

    i picked him up as a free agent and then played him on a hunch / hedge (i admit to being a life long pats fan) because romo has just been ******* me off lately.

    still losing this week though.... :( i hate the giants. no kidding.

    I have no RBs.... My WRs are way too inconsistent.. I have a terrible kicker (I've gone through 5 of them :( )

    At least my defense is good ;)

    Finally on the board with a win! Who cares that I would have gotten beat by every other team this week :oops:.

    Also, if anybody needs a QB, I am looking to trade Cam Newton

    Hoping this trade works out for me! Last year's move with JBF#1 certainly didn't (bringing in Fred Jackson - the rushing leader, the week before he went on IR).

    Newton for Rivers and Benson. Wanted a little more upside from the double threat of Newton, but with moving on Benson, and Beanie Wells on IR (not much of a loss tbh!), all my depth at RB will be gone - totally reliant on Shady McCoy and Turner staying healthy. I dread to think of week 7 when I will have McCoy, Turner, Julio Jones and Demaryius Thomas all on byes! Definitely need to get to 4-2 by then, as that week will almost be a gimme for Axis of Ignorance.

    Anyway, nice to get a trade done, BHiC. You have some real good depth for the stretch at RB now.

    Thanks, hopefully Cam can get his act together for the rest of the season (except week 10, of course) . Anyway, I am an NC State fan, how could I not accept a trade for Rivers?:)

    And that Jackson trade sounds like something I would do, my best players always seem to find the IR!

    And, right after I trade Newton, RG3 goes for 4 points and gets knocked out of the game!

    I've avoided saying anything because I haven't wanted to jinx Newton.

    Benson left the game with an injured foot after a reasonable start and didn't return. RGIII was knocked out the game and didn't return. And Newton over the first half has gone 3 of 15 for 40 yards, and was 1 of 9 with 2 rushing yards until the final drive inside 2 minutes! :cry:

    Maybe Rivers will end up being the value in this trade!

    ---

    I'm just glad my opponent this week is only fielding four active players, because those four (Ryan / AJ Green / Cruz / Pitt D) have scored a combined 70 points.

    Haha, that seems like a possibility. I wasn't so lucky, I am getting an absolute beat down, losing 143-83 with only Gates and Malcolm Floyd left to play!

    How dare Greg Zuerlein miss a FG from 50+. Is he serious? :)

    Vick looks busy again!

    Yeah but effing Shonn Green finally decides to show up the week he's playing me. My luck this year.

    Yeah - I don't know where that came from. Frustrating because you don't even consider Shonn Green an inconsistent player who can put up huge totals - he's just not productive at a fantasy level.

    My five players starting the early games managed to be outscored by MINUS 2 to 40 in the second half of their games (was about 45-45 at HT)! Don't think I can win this week, when Stephen Hill and Kendall Wright are scoring a third more points than Julio Jones and Mike Turner! Having said that, I'm starting Christian Ponder, so maybe I don't deserve anything. :)

    Wow, that sounds as bad as trading for Cedric Benson almost the day before he goes on the IR. :lol: At least RG3 came through for me today!

    Haha! That's true, and to make matters worse I picked up Benson's replacement, Alex Green, on the waiver wire that week. :oops:

    Either way I'm still stuck with Newton - I'm hoping he's done some productive thinking during the bye!

    Need some magic from Demaryius Thomas on MNF (19 points) to win this week, after Houston's garbage time blocked punt TD made things much more difficult.

    RGIII was an absolutely beast!

    Does our league not process waivers in rounds each week (i.e after you pick up one player then players lower in waiver order get a shot, before the waiver order circles round to the beginning)? It looks like whoever is first could notionally clear out every popular player on the wire before other struggling teams even get a chance at getting anyone.

    Not a huge issue, but I always thought that the other system was a fairer overall way to give all struggling teams a chance at improving.

    Anyway, I'm out to bring Poisoned Pawns' unbeaten streak / my losing streak to an end this week, waiver wire or no waiver wire!

    I don't know, I thought waivers was processed in rounds. I thought that that is why you have to set a priority for waiver pick ups.

    I thought that was the system too, but I had Jennings as first priority and the Atlanta D second. I figured I wouldn't get Jennings but thought I'd have a shot at the D if I gave it high priority.

    We'll just call ourselves even over 'the Benson injustice!' :twisted:

    Yep, just realized this. Sorry about that since I am in the basement, lol. Waiver priority was set to reverse order of standings and not rolling reverse order of standings. Should be fixed moving forward. Not that my waiver deals have worked out or anything (Hartline, Felix Jones).

    I feel like I have a decent roster, just a combo of bad matchups and guys not producing sees me at 0-7. Vexing to say the least.

    Haha, that is exactly the same order I had. I picked up Atlanta a couple weeks ago, and had to drop them last week because of the bye.

    And alright, we are now even! :)

    Hey - don't complain. You're 0-7 and you're not bottom of the standings! Something must have gone right! :twisted:

    I think the confederation of sub-.500 teams fight back this week!

    I did make you what I thought was a pretty decent offer (a WR who is a better bet to score than two of the WRs you are starting) for a player who will sit the whole season on your bench (and has an injury record). I don't know how I could improve that offer without making it completely one sided to your benefit.

    Haha! So it didn't quite work out this weekend.

    JBF lost the battle of the 0-7s, against a team who have had no kicker all season, BHiC got dealt with by Peyton Manning on SNF, and I scored the second highest total in the league by over 10 points and still lost to the still unbeaten Poisoned Pawns! Gronk really did for me.

    I am DEFINITELY winning this week.
