COVID - League Plans?

As a Conner and Henry owner this sucks. Time for plans B and C. Looking for any live body playing in the Sunday or Monday night games to buy as much time as possible.

G. Ward, R. Tonyan, J. Wilson, etc.

They will play either Monday or Tuesday. Right now it doesn't look like it will be rescheduled any further out than that.

Hard to be 110% confident about anything Covid anything. Not making alternative plans and banking on a Monday or Tuesday night game risks a massive goose egg.

Coincidently, I had to drop my FitzMagic for G. Ward.

Holy crap - people are dumb.  For the most part, the NFL is doing well but this is the type of carelessness that could cause outbreaks.

And two high profile players for the most part...Carr and Waller.

I was watching the Get Up or something like that this morning and they talked about this.  The players will get a series of "warnings" for misconduct and then a fine.  This is what the NFLPA negotiated, which is BS.

Definitely sucks but if come Saturday night the game is scheduled for Monday/Tuesday there's no way I'm playing some scrub over Conner/Henry on the off chance the game is cancelled.

Whatever the day this game is played on, not sure how your league Commish won’t apply those points to Week 4. That’s what I’ll be doing.

I wonder if the NFL has any protocols for getting these events approved?  On one hand, it's the player's personal time, but we've seen other sports (NBA for example) that have mandated rules for every aspect of a player's life.  Hard to believe the NFL would allow these types of things without even requiring that the player notify the NFL.

I can't see why they'd be unable to punish them. We regularly see the commissioner punish guys for various domestic issues they commit off the field. In that sense this is no different. These guys are completely free to do whatever they want if they'd like to avoid playing football. If they want to continue playing the sport there are plenty of things they're not able to do. Hanging out with a bunch of maskless people during a pandemic should be one of those things. Can't imagine the owners are going to be happy having their income threatened.

Yeah, initially I think nobody expected entire games to be at risk. Yahoo may need to pause weeks until all games are played. Meaning, whenever that game is played it should apply to the week it was originally supposed to be played. However, if a player gets injured in the meantime that presents another problem. What a mess!

Yeah I'm curious how ESPN will be able to handle it too...right now I have Henry, Juju, and Jonnu showing up as a "Bye" in my starting lineup. Really hope they find a way to work the points out if they play. Was already dealing with injuries to Adams/Mostert/Goedert...might be without my whole starting lineup this week! Any information on when they would hope to have a final decision made? Before Sunday kickoff would be nice 👍

I see what you're saying but I'm not sure that would work either.  Let's say this Titans/Steelers game can't be rescheduled until the end of the season.  Is Connor still healthy?  Have the Titan's locked up their division, thus will sit Henry?  No easy answers here.

I wanna say this has happened before. Been a while though. I think it was a weather related postponement. The teams played on a Tuesday night and it counted for that week. Guessing that would hold true again, but yeah...contacting Yahoo (unless they go ahead and post something to your league's main web page) is prolly the only way to find out for sure.

This. That's a crazy idea to lock in a starter weeks ahead of the actual game being played. You'd almost have to lock in a backup. For example, you could "start" Myles Gaskin this week with the understanding that you would be starting Conner over him were that game being played. Then Gaskin's points get replaced by Conner's points when that game is played. 

That's a headache.

I should have been more clear. Not Whatever day, but if it’s Monday/Tuesday those points should still fall under Week 4. Apologies.

I'm comish in an ESPN league and I'd think that a Tuesday game would be applied to week 4 games. I'm sure they have programmers on alert now to figure out solutions lol. 

Also, the only way as comish I can see that I can mitigate risk for owners is to adjust the scoring manually if people get screwed. For example, prior to this week's game owners could send me "if / then" statements. For example, "if" game is postponed, "then" take my D. Henry 0 out and substitute X player's score.

I like this idea as long as the alternative player is announced before any games kickoff Sunday.  

I imagine a Tuesday game would have to count towards Week 4.  The NFL probably doesn't want to re-arrange things if they don't have to, so as long as the NFL applies this game towards Week 4, then the Fantasy Platforms should as well.

Now if the NFL re-arranges bye weeks, and this game gets played in a few weeks, then you're SOL for your Titans/Steelers players this week and just have to treat it as their bye week.  Hopefully, BIG HOPEFULLY, they announce their plans before 1pm Sunday.  That's the only way things get tricky IMO is if we don't have a clear plan going into Sunday.

Looks like ESPN is trying to figure it out, opponent+date/time has been removed from PIT/TEN players, though projection still remains. Oddly, Juju is currently considered to have played already in the Box Score section(note the "Yet to Play" and "Mins Left" tally[should be "8" and "480"], I'm sure that won't be permanent, lol) though I can still move him on my Roster pagespacer.png

If a game is postponed due to Covid, all skill players from those teams should be made IR so that managers can try to replace them without dropping them in order to field a full squad. Not sure if that's what will happen but I think it's what should.

Damn good idea. I think I would love this more if it was a "one off" type of situation. This situation could turn out to be very common so I would just have owners treat these situations as if a player was a game time decision. I would expand roster sizes and just let owners figure out what they want to do for any given week.  

Also, I think with enhanced testing capabilities and quicker turnarounds in the NFL, we should know by Fri/Sat.

I feel like there have been Tuesday games historically, but cannot think of an example off the top of my head. It's also really important whether these are actually these players bye weeks or not.

I emailed Yahoo.  Waiting for reply.  I'd hope they would post something to everyone's league website but maybe they will reply to me.  Last time I wrote them, it took 2 days to get a response so I'm not that hopeful.

ALSO - They moved Derrick Henry's opponent to "Bye" so they're clearly on top of it.  I don't think it should be a bye though.
