Fantasy First? - postponed games

9 posts in this topic

So hurricane Ike has postponed the game between Houston and Baltimore until the Raven's bye week.

Fantasy Football results for this week are all out of whack. Some scores won't be known for many weeks. What if McGahee or Andre Johnson gets injured prior to then? I doubt we can change our lineup for week 2 eight weeks down the road.

I'm currently losing by 8 points but could come back to win in several weeks. I'm sure this is a first. Any league administrators put in special cases for this game?

I told my league that if they start any Balt/Houston players this week and the game isn't played by Monday night, they will receive zero points for those players. End of story.

If your league is going to retroactively adjust week #2 scores in eight weeks, that is absurd IMO.

i thought it was just considered a bye week for those teams. they'll rearrange the schedules and lose their regular bye week later in the year.

That's correct, but there are fantasy leagues that couldn't adjust on that short of notice, as the word came out late Saturday night about the schedule change.

The one thing to keep an eye on is that you may have drafted certain players so that their bye weeks don't overlap such as two QB's, PK's, or Def, and now they might due to the schedule change.

Looks like I'm out of luck. There won't be any retroactive scoring in 8 weeks. I'll chalk it up as my own fault, but there was no communication of this condition in either of the league's I play in. Would have been nice, but I'll put this on me. Cost me a game - bummer.

i am my leagues commissioner and i emailed everyone as soon as i found out. The info was out there, all I needed to do was read the yahoo fantasy football homepage and i got the info i needed.

I played against a guy who had Andre Johnson and didn't change his roster...I still lost.

I am also my leagues commish and I e-mailed everyone Saturday posted a bulletin on the web page and called the few people that had the very few players that it involved.....wasn't an issue in my league and it took me 10 minutes to send out 3 different ways of informing the league.........the dumb thing was I played against a guy that was starting A. Johnson and I called him and told him and he put in A. Gonzalez and beat me....but what do you do fair is fair.....

    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy. 
    • There sure isn't any rhyme or reason to the costs. I think you stand a lot better chance for a good price in the summer though when you can take your house to a job site and they don't have set up and clean up costs involved. 
    • If you use the vinyl kind it coils horribly and if you use the braided types your trebles get stuck in it. I'm not smart enough to do it but I wish some company could figure it out.  
    • So you are saying we all should have voted for a corrupt Clinton over the other candidates? Or should we go back and forth and point out the failings of Democratic states and go round and round? I voted for Johnson, both parties are useless to me but if you want to put on a blindfold and cry about the other party you go right ahead. It's obvious you can't look at any issue without those tinted political glasses on, I'm sure JV would be happy to fire up a tax based argument based on political leanings.
    • Ahhh. Another shiatty weekend for putzbutton.   "We talked about sore winners in the earlier segment. We really didn’t lose. This was sort of a successful failure,” radio host Mark Thompson said on MSNBC Saturday.   "A successful failure"   See !!   There is a silver lining for you libbers...      
    • Sounds reasonable.  We were just under that at a guy up north west of the metro and we had a 16 footer.  Called about 10-15 places and that was the low side of average.  
    • the guy that smoked it is a pro so I would think he did all the precautions needed. I will see him again this summer and ask him.  
    • Didn't catch the game last night but Parise hasn't looked like himself for sure. With some of the younger guys stepping up and Staal it hasn't hurt us nearly as bad as past years but it would sure be nice to see him get healthy. You kind of knew his contract was going to hurt at some point, hopefully it doesn't start this soon.
