I don't care. I lost a point a week the last four weeks on the buccanneers. Switching out the teams that go on bye just so you can get more points should be against the rules.

Why should it be illegal?

I think it's more strategy - either you can trade out a team and get points, but you might not get the team back and, depending on how well the other team does, you might end up with loss. On the other hand, you might pick up a better team, but if they haven't been on BYE you might suffer later.

It also proves an advantage to other players who are willing to trade teams who might lose to a team on BYE, but that team turns out to do very well coming out of BYE. It's the same reason as trading a team who's going against an undefeated team.

In that case, I should complement for good strategy picking up the Vikings on BYE week. I never really thought about it in that case.

Jeol, you're going to lose. Those four points make a huge difference... I guess you might get lucky.

Like I said, it all depends how well I trade up :3

Wait, why does he get 4 teams?

Sorry I meant 3 teams. jeol please pick 3 teams. ill give you until saturday night for picks.

Why should it be illegal?

jeol is right. You can trade your team out for a pool team during your teams bye week however you take the risk of potentially losing the team. Think of it like this: say if the Broncos had a bye week this week and I traded them for a pool team. If your the first person to see this wouldn't it be smart to take the Broncos  even though you had no chance of gaining a point this week.

Tbh working the bye weeks could be game changing. Three points is a big deal. Even more important then playing the pool teams.

Hmm... In that case, I'll take the Bills, the Cowboys, and the Steelers.

Jeol, please! Do not take the steelers. The Browns have control of their division. THE BROWNS JEOL. Please jeol, change your pick to someone else.

No points, but dang, that Cowboys - Broncos game looks close. I'll just assume since I didn't see it...

The Bills could have had it if Manuel didn't get injured. Tuel killed it. *sigh*
