    I got to figure out how to work the waiver system correctly because I added way too many TE this week.

    I was wondering what was going on.. did you have 3 or 4 on your roster at once? I thought maybe you knew something that I didn't, like one of them was going to become kicker eligible or something.
    14 in a row = 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012a, 2012b, 2013a, 2013b, 2014a, 2014b

    I needed to add to my weak TE group, so I put a couple that I wanted but I couldnt find a setting that said, if you pick up this TE then I dont want to grab the other two TEs. I'm probably missing some box that I can check off to do that, unless the Yahoo system is just fundamentally flawed.

    Also, my bench is crap so I had some dead weight to cut anyways. But yeah, 4 TEs is a mistake.

    1-0 baby!

    If you want to do that then set up all your waiver claims to drop the same player. Once you added your first TE then none of the other claims you put in should have processed since the player you were dropping is no longer on your roster.

    Using that method, how does the system know which TE he wanted the most, and therefore (if available via waiver priority) as a result drops the player on the roster, effectively stopping the other two claims? Is it a matter of what order you put your claims in, when making multiple claims that drop the same player?

    You can arrange your claims in order of priority. So if someone picked his first claim it would move to the next highest claim.

    So what are your thoughts on Dexter McCluster? He's considered a WR in my league but should get touches out of the backfield as well as a receiver. That kind of versatility intrigued me enough to pick him up off the waiver wire. What do you guys think? was he worth the waiver claim?

    Arian Taterhood sounds like an awesome name.

    I had him on my team last year, and unless it's a PPR / return yards league it just didn't prove to be worthwhile. Of course, if your league does count return yards he had 150+ yds combined and that'd be worth it.

    Thanks dude. I didnt think about that. The leagues that I have been in before always had a dont add this player if this other player has already been added feature. But that will definitely work.

    Its funny how this league is way more competitive than my other league which is for way more money.

    Well if he doesn't show up in the next two weeks I might have to cut him and re-name my team anyway.

    If I had played my optimal lineup today, I would have had around 165 points this week. Oh well, I'll take 130. I'm trying to wonder how good my team will be like once my #1 draft pick (Arian Foster) finally gets healthy and starts playing at 100%.

    I'm so glad I didn't trade away Jeremy Maclin last week. That would have really hurt. Anyways, I'm STILL on the market for a RB1 if someone wants to trade and needs a WR. Don't even bother trying to trade for Brady, Foster, or Vincent Jackson.

    That's how fantasy football works. When you win, you earn the right to gloat a little. Helps me forget all about my bad week 1 performance.

    I wouldn't count on Foster being what he was last year. Tate is excelling in his absent and when Foster comes back I'd expect Tate to take some of his carries away. Remember Tate was supposed to be the starting running back last year before he got hurt.

    Reasons why Arian Foster is NOT a fantasy bust (yet)

    1. The Ben Tate argument:

    Most of the articles I have read seem to revolve around Ben Tate stealing the starting job, or at least forcing a time share or dual back system. While this may be true for Week 2, I don't see it happening the whole season.

    First of all, Foster was the leading rusher of the season. I don't care how well your backup plays when you're hurt for a week, you don't lose your hold on the starting job that easily. Especially when your backup is an unproven second year running back who could have easily had a lucky game against a weak run defense. I don't know about anyone else, but I'd rather roll with the guy who's coming off a spectacular season.

    Furthermore, even with a great performance last week, Tate still was unable to live up to Foster's performance last year. Let's look at the numbers between Tate's Week 1 performance against the Colts this year and Foster's Week 1 performance against the Colts last year: Foster had 231 rush yards to Tate's 116. Yes, Tate had fewer carries, but Foster also had a higher YPC at 7.0 to Tate's 4.8. Foster also had three TDs to Tate's one. You see where I'm going with this yet?

    Finally, Tate's Week 1 numbers against one of the worst rush defenses in the league barely match up to Foster's 2011 averages. During 2011, Foster averaged 101 rush yards per game, 4.9 YPC, and 38 receiving yards per game. Keeping in mind that those include some games against tough defenses (Jets, Eagles, Ravens, Chargers), Foster's numbers are far more impressive.


    2. The Injury Prevention Argument:

    I've also seen several articles saying that the Texans need to run a dual back system to keep Foster healthy and fresh throughout the year and for the playoffs (if they make it). Where is this argument coming from? Foster had almost 400 touches last year and had no injury issues all season. And what makes you think he'll get tired as the season wears on? Foster's last four games included one rough game (61 total yards and zero TDs in Week 15) and three great games: 125 yards against the Ravens in Week 14; 135 yards and one TD in Week 16 and 190 yards and two TDs in Week 17. But people think he's gonna wear down towards the end of the season? He missed Week 1 and he was limited in Week 2, so really it seems like he'll be set up perfectly to play some of his best games in the playoffs if last year is any indication.
