Yeah you're team is wrecked by injury. Kind of happy you didn't take my kuz for Porter offer :)

Doesn't leaving an injured player in your lineup count as a game played and satisfy the activity rule?

If not I'm fine with an exception.

No, if your player gets zero minutes, you don't have a game counted against you.

I used to think the same and someone asked that and it said no, it doesn't count as a game. But I think I've noticed since then, when not knowing a guy was injured, that it didn't add a game, since it tells you games played at each position at bottom.

Yeah, I'm not 100% on what the number is, but I am totally in favor of waiving your activity penalty should it apply. Raising the IR cap to 3 would help you some, but we may need to implement a rule regarding injured keepers. Of course, I think we should be able to see pretty clearly cases like yours where circumstances beyond your control impede your ability to meet the activity threshold. Everyone else seems on a pace to do so, which is what we want.

I went through the same thing. Dwight Howard for damn near all the season (Finally dropped him so i could get anybody bringing in stats), Wade, French Frank, Harry Giles, PatBev, and now CP3. Usually i look at the team the player is facing and decide if i think he will have a good game or not before deciding on putting him into my line-up. Since i was soooo far behind in games played i had to resort to dropping guys i didnt want to drop and playing guys in every possible game, which is probably the reason my team is almost last in FG%.

But hell, last year i was active the entire time (I have never been non-active in fantasy), i came in first place, but yet i was STILL under the amount of games needed to be played. So something has to change with that Number of Games played thing, because if me getting first and being active doesnt make it, and others being active and not reaching it due to injuries, then the system is broken.

On another note, damn my Premier League team and its injuries! Cousins i can understand as i drafted him injured, but Rondo, McGee, Gasol, and guys like Mitchell and Ball missing games, i mean at one point i had my IR filled and the two guys i took on to replace them also went down with injury. Dont even get me started with the Jabari Parker situation either!

Yeah, but I don't know if Ayton would have been a keeper. I have 5 keepers out. All at least a month it appears, and one since beginning of season already and the other two mostly likely all season, though LeVert might come back at some point if it makes sense for them to bring him back.

Injuries have completely ruined my Prem league team.

Have lost my 3, 4, 5 round picks (Love, Barton, Valanciunas) to LONG injuries - not to mention LeVert who I drafted late too.

Am in last, comfortably. Have been in the Prem league since the first season so have my work cut out to stay up. Might be my last season for a while anyway, wife and I expecting our first kid in May :D Super pumped.

Had our work Christmas function the other night and I noticed some bad (more than usual ha) offers had gone out on the Uber ride home, apologies all.

Always keen to deal though so hit me up with offers, not moving Wall or Embiid but everyone else available.

Cheers and happy holidays all

Merry Christmas!

I'm not desperate to make a move but I'd be open for a 2 for 1 type deal in the dynasty league. I like more of my guys than I'll be able to keep.

Well that just about does it for me.

Lost my 2nd rounder Wall for the season, on top of Love, Barton and LeVert all being done.

Patchwork job the rest of the season but can’t see me avoiding last. Dammit.

Damn, DeOtherAyton gained ground on me because I accidentally left 65 points at about 61% FG%, 13 boards and 9 assists on the bench.

I've pretty much mailed it in this season but I've had enough fun to give next year another go. Guess I'm back for good lol.

The stash was worth it. Happy to hear Cousins coming back - dont know what to expect.

I need a small forward who shoots threes- and willing to let go a PG. Whos keen?

Theres no real penalty for stashing really since there's an INJ spot. Also not keen on parting with Danny Green sorry mate
