is there a list somewhere I can't find that tells me what the player status words mean? Or can someone tell me what PUP-P means? Because if t means what I think it means, what was the player even doing in the draft eligible list?

Physically Unable to Play. But it doesn't mean they're out for the entire season or anything like that. They can come off the PUP list tomorrow and be fine for the season. It just means they're not practicing or anything.

I only see one defensive player on my roster. That can't be right; or is it. I see 12 offensive players, 2 kickers, too.

Am I supposed to add to my defensive roster?

Nope you get the entire defense, for instance, I do have two defenses, ALL of Green Bay, and ALL of Carolina. The defense get points differently than the offense, so they approach it slightly differently. You have the entire New England Patriots defense. Assuming, of course, that you are the Susan that owns the Bulldogs, which is the only new team name in the league.

Defense starts out with points and loses them as other team scores but can gain points with turnovers and def scores.

Well, I can tell I am on a learning curve that isn't close to what I thought I was getting into.

Be kind.

You will do fine. Ask questions! The Defense starts with 10 points. As the team they are playing scores this number decreases. But D can gain points with recovered fumbles etc.

I hate Yahoo's new live fluctuations on the score projections.

Two different leagues. Same WR in Mon night game. One on my team the other with my opponent. He scored enough in one for me to lose but not enough for me to win in the other. Lost both by less than a point. Ugh.

How does "Waiver" work? I have no idea what that means or what options I have with that. Thanks!

If you decide you would like to get rid of (drop) one of your current players, you can replace them with any other player (add) that is not already on someone's team. However, there is an order to who gets first crack at a player. It is based on your current placing over all, and how many changes you have already made. So basically, if you want to drop player XXX and replace them with YYY, you make that move, and then the player has to clear waivers. That means if you and someone else both try to take the player YYY, there has to be a way to decide who gets the YYY (besides first come first serve) . Right now, your waiver number is three, so as long as the person(s) with waiver number one or two don't try and add the YYY, you get that player before anyone with waiver numbers from four to ten. Right now, if you and I try to take the YYY, you will always get that player instead of me, because my waiver number is only nine.

If somebody gets injured, or, like my team, your players flat out suck, you would drop them from your team and pick up somebody off waivers.
