    I go into the week with a killer squad and my opponent has a semi decent team. Well he adds and drops the first two days against my team and stays within reach then he adds and drops for Thursday when there were few teams playing. He fills his team up with scrubs that nickel and dime me to death and contiuned to do this to me all week. So I tried dropping my players and adding mediocre players to fill the day roster. Well it backfired on me why? Because streamers with bad teams in the championship game have the advantage. They fill up their roster to max everyday with scrubs. Then when you try to combat them by doing the same (except your releasing good players to max out everyday) they put in a waiver request for all of your good players dropped. Then they end up getting all of them because you can not put in a waiver for players that you dropped and most of the other teams don't care too much at that time and don't put in any waiver request! Are you kidding me. How is that strategy fair. It rewards bad teams. If I don't STREAM he will nickel and dime me to death and if I do STREAM he gets ALL of my good players.

    • I didn't know I was so popular. Let's end this right here right now. Take a vote If your for Streaming say Yea if you are against say Na. Too easy right no need for a message just a Yea or Na.

    • Streamers defending streamers man there is nothing worse. BTW here is my trophy http://profiles.sports.yahoo.com/aS1wnAhyjDe1PWrgEIoudd64wKYXlM6tsLWJc

    • Don't get mad at me because I'm puttin git out there for everyone to see. Streamers defend streamers just like crooks defend crooks. You man up and go toe to toe you can bob and weave just don't run out the ring grab a chair when the refs not looking and call that fair because you were not disqualified. Streamers know the only why to win is by finding loopholes that no one else can use. If it were fair both teams could do it but it favors Streamers and that is where my beef lays. Man up people Man up

    • Actually I didn't lose but it was closer than it should have been. Check out my trophies

    • Everybody keeps advising about drop your bottom players or roll with what you have. My league has 13 slots 10 starters 3 bench. My team is Paul, Bryant, Granger, Josh Smith, Okafor, Camby, D. Williams, Jefferson, Baron Davis, D. Howard, T. Chandler, Jamison, and J.R. Smith. Now who the heck am I suppose to drop out that bunch without giving my opponent an advantage? Tuesday I had 10 playing, Wednesday 6, Thursday 4, Friday 8 Saturday 10, Sunday 3 Mon 4 Tuesday 7 and Wednesday 10. That's a total of 62 when my opponent Streams for a max total of 90. That means that if my guys average 20 pts 10 reb 7 ast 2 stl 2 bls between them all. All he has to average is 13 pts 6 reb 4ast 1stl and 1 bls. On Tuesday I noticed he made a lot of adds and drops which didn't worry me too much cause I beat him on Tuesday and had enough for him Wednesday. Wednesday he did it again and max out for Thursday when I only had 3 guys playing so I dropped 3 of my players D. Williams, Granger and J.R. Smith and added 3 more players to have an competitive roster number to his. Now that is not too bad but here is where I have a problem. When I try to put in a waiver claim to get one if not all of those players back I get a prompt saying I can't pick them up until they clear waivers. Which opens up the doors for my opponent to grab all of them to torch me for the weekend. So I go into the weekend where if I keep my roster intact I would have 10 playing Saturday but i didn't so now I have 8 playing. Being that I was behind on everything but FG%, TO and Techs I drop Howard and Bryant to give me 10. Now my line up for the whole week is jacked up because even though my players played well this week we were behind because of my opponent sheer ability to max out games and snatch up my players when I release them to try to keep up. If this was a fair system I should at least have the ability to grab my own players on the waiver wire to counter my opponent just like he countered me. But it's a one way street that's built for weaker teams. Fantasy Welfare that's what I call it!

      • Its a strategy for weaker managers with weaker teams. If you have the right players. You should be able to take fg % ft % and turnovers. Then all u have to do is make sure you have the right players to get you 2 other catagories For me its steals and blocks. You can add and drop all you want. Bench warmers dont get many steals or blocks. Draft big guys with good ft percentages and good defense. You can draft 3 point shooters and role players in the later rounds. I also have a strategy for basbeall streamers. You draft all 5 tool players and closer right off the back. Pick pitchers last. Since there going to streampitchers anyways right? That means drafting pitchers high only lowers the valu of your team when you play him. Draft all 5 tool studs and do your best to take the 5 batting catagories. Make sure your ptichers are solid. Maddux, zito, even washburn. The point is none of these pitchers will have era's over 5 and you can count on them all season. Whats the point of drafting peavy when the guys gonna pick up 70 starters and beat u in wins and k'xs anywyas right/ well....let him have wins and k's....go for era, whip, saves, and the batting categories. Trust me you will have the streamers hatijng there lives. Go for it bro

    • thats what happens in h2h leagues. The best teams don't always or usually win. You would be better off just playing roto or in a h2h league with max moves
