    Apparently I decided to take the '09 T-Wolves route and blow my draft on selecting rookie PGs. Maybe I should snag Rubio to complete the process.

    Rocastle I like the majority of your squad. You are going to be thin on rebounds, and you drafted three injured players that arent going to start the season (Love, Dunleavy, and T-Mac.) I like Thaddeaus Young more than Al Thornton, because the Clippers have a worse logjam at the 4 & 5 than we do at the 1 & 2.

    This is why I moved the league back a week. I had a sneaking suspicion that folks would need the time to tweak their rosters.

    ...So

    I have some very basic questions that as a first-timer that I need to know:

    1. When I set my weekly lineup, am I ONLY selecting my starting 5? Are the other 8 players essentially "inactive" for that week?

    2. Am I correct in assuming that the schedule of a given player weighs heavily in who you want to activate? (...for instance, a guy who's team is playing 4 games during the course of a week as oppsed to a guy who's team is only playing 3 games?)

    3. How long does the waiver process take (is it two days?)?

    Rax got this. Only BN (bench) players dont play.

    Right. You will get more production out of Delfino than Tayshaun Prince is Delf plays 4 games and Tay plays 2. Probably. ;)

    I believe so.

    BDL, I hope you have archived progress of your team safely, at the end of the season I'd like to get these reports...( now reports in PF are scattered here and there)

    You can play for low TOs and surrender the assists category. I have done that (successfully) before.

    Rocastle, keep your eyes open. It is a given, that 4 or 5 PGs not currently on teams will have excellent season. Your job is to make sure you know who that is.

    Like if Rodney Stuckey got injured, Bynum could suddenly be starting. Watch for situations like that.

    Rocastle, I hate to say it but you should be worried about the center position as well, seeing how you have Duncan and Love (who is out for a while), and you NEED two centers...Definitely need to pick up a C immediately.

    there are several 11 and 7 big men available in FA category and here are several teams lacking either C or PF. Be quick.

    I don't understand how to pick up free agents. I click on Add Players. Then I filter by Free Agents, but there are no results.

    Another question. I keep logging in and my lineups are never the way I saved them the last time I logged in. Injured players are in the starting lineups, etc. Every time, I rearrange them so it's right. I submit changes, and then when I log in again, they're messed up again. Any ideas?
