    Does not look like I will be able to set my lineups for the last week in March. I am going on vacation and there is no way that I can get to a PC.

    Any ideas? Is there someway this can be overriden?

    I believe you can set your lineups in advance as far as you want.

    If you are stuck, I can set them for you but you should be able to set them well in advance like Scoe' suggested.

    Dwayne Wade, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

    29ppg, 48%FG, 82% FT, 8 AST, 6 REB, 2 ST, 1 BL

    Let's all shed a tear for Wade, and FD.

    But really, can someone please explain to me how I'm still in second place after losing Wade my only good player, and still have a legit shot at the regular season crown? What's wrong with you people?

    Too bad Webz and I don't get our chance to meet for a second time in the regular season. It coulda been for all the marbles.

    Mostly what's wrong with #1? Looks like he's working on 3 straight losses. Can you explain yourself mister?

    Hoping that I can avoid a playoff meeting with MoPri. After all the razzing I've given him this year, I just can't bear the thought of going down to him. I've got 5 bucks for someone if they take him out in the first week of the playoffs for me.

    Your TO's and FT% improved without Wade. Maybe that was enough. Have you been winning those lately?

    Its not so much about the studs, its about the supporting cast. Wade can only play a max of 4 games a week out of a total of 45 or so. So thats a small % of games.

    Pretty much every team is guaranteed to draft at least 3 studs. Its those waiver pickups (Biedrins) and guys who have breakout seasons (D.Williams) that you draft in the later rounds that make the difference.

    Wow, now you've resorted to hiring hitmen to do your dirty work. :pound: If Roscoe is the best you can muster, I'll make sure to buy a fly swatter. ;)

    That Richard Jefferson pickup hasn't hurt you much either. That was a crazy week for free agency pickups. I had to choose between Jefferson and Maggette. Should have picked them both up, but that was just too many small forwards for my team and I was still searching for a point guard.

    Yeah, waiver pick-ups have served me pretty well. I've picked up B. Roy, A. Jefferson, R. Jefferson, J Jack, J Nelson, J. Williams and A. Johnson.

    Has anyone else added 7 guys to their team via FA acquisition?

    Can anyone claim to have better pick-ups than the guys I mentioned?

    Feedback.

    Haven't had to do too much with free agency thus far. So here's my diamonds.

    Stephon Marbury
    Marvin Williams
    Jason Richardson

    Corey Maggette (later dropped - maybe a mistake, but not costly)


    Al Jefferson and Roy are very nice pickups but the others aren't a whole lot to write home about. RJ is an over-rated fantasy player.

    I haven't done badly.

    Aldridge, Biedrins, Maggette, Carroll and M. Moore. Tony Allen was a good pickup for me but he bit the dust.

    You have me beat though.

    #1 hasn't done too badly either with Delonte West, David West, Rashard Lewis, Nick Collison and Danny Granger.

    I'll nominate Rashard Lewis if he helps me win it all.

    Solid, MP.

    #1 was great too, although David West was acquired by trade.
