    @ddsaints Whiteside might have made the margin smaller, but you smashed me overall today, scoring 202 from 6 players. Well played!

    Part of my poor finish to this week was picking up Josh Hart to play the final two days. He scored negatives both games for me!
    Just reading Roto now, I had to agree with their summation today that "he's been a bit of a fantasy disaster"! :(

    Looks like ESPN have sorted out the DQ issue, with players fouling out only given 1 DQ right away.

    About time they fixed this!

    @Rad_E_Cool we both had a waiver claim on Thomas Bryant! You were the only one who coulda beat me so I was hoping you passed him up.

    Looks like a couple of guys in the Premier league not setting their teams.

    3 i think.
    @walesy was the first to go.
    @yumcha was next, about 2 weeks ago. I think @HEAVER has tried to contact him to find out why. He's stopped making moves in another league too, which makes it seem like something may be happening in rl for him. I hope everything's ok.
    @Auron has been the latest to drop off, about a week ago.

    Hope you guys are ok?

    With 3 people being relegated at season's end, it seems like it will be these three.

    Quick question, do the number of acquisitions reset after a week or is it 5 for the three weeks for this first playoff round?

    That’s a good question.

    Previously we’ve always had it 5 per matchup, no matter the length. Until last season that is, where we switched to 2 week matchups during finals, because of the way they had the all star game in the schedule last season. Last season we set it to have more than 5 in longer matchups....

    But I see now that it’s set to be 5 this year, no matter the length of the matchup. And we’ve got 2 week matchups again!

    I’m not sure whether to change it or not, this late in the piece.

    What do you all think?

    In the last few days before our draft, I had to swap it around a few times when we switched from 12 team leagues to 11 and then back to 12.
    I think I just forgot to set it to expand for longer matchups...

    I’ve just checked back to see if I ever specified previously about what it would be for this season, but I didn’t, so I think I’m inclined to leave it as 5 per matchup given that the first matchup has already begun, and some people might’ve planned accordingly. But I’m happy to change it if that’s what people want.

    The secret is out with Ant telling the league about Josh Lloyd & BBM!!

    I had assumed it was 5 per week...that's how it works in my other league on Fantrax. 5 acquisitions for 3 weeks is very sparse esp with the trade deadline coming up....

    Yeah, I'm the same, assumed it was 5 per week and have been planning accordingly - 5 for 3 weeks is nowhere near enough

    It’s basically a two week matchup seeing as the all star weekend is in between. I think 10 rather than 15 would make more sense but probably a bit hard to do. The matchup has started though, seems odd to change it now

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    I was initially worried that people would’ve planned based on the settings, but as it seems from the above comments, people were planning based on expectations (presumably by what happened last year). I am guilty of this too.

    I don’t think it’s too late to change it. We are only one day into a very long matchup. I’ll see if the game lets me change it mid-matchup.

    Ok, so I can change it, but it’s not effective for this current matchup... so will come into effect ready for the semi finals.

    Gives us time to do a poll for the remainder of the finals series, but we’re gonna have to deal with just 5 acquisitions for this all star break and trade deadline matchup. Not ideal, but we’re all in the same boat. Pity none of us realised earlier.

    I was going to suggest that 10 over 3 weeks would be more than sufficient.
    5 over 3 requires strategy and I’m all for it.

    Sorry mate - I made that claim before the end of the day where I failed to make finals. Wouldn't have if I'd known I was out of the running.
