Yeah, I am not quite sure what to do. Stick with the consistency of Kittle or go for it with Samuels for potential upside. Also, the Steelers have been saying they will use a committee, but I think Samuels will get his touches/passes. Decisions, decisions. I am 12-1 and feel like I should just keep riding with my lineup that I have basically used all season, but like the chance of being able to use a RB in the TE position.
i managed to get him in the only yahoo league i am in. i have kelce. so, not likely to start him as TE. but, given that i also relied on Gordon, i might be starting him as a RB and i also have flexibility later at TE if i need it.
PLUS, noone will be starting him at TE AGAINST ME!
This is exactly what i was going point out. If you feel better starting Kittle, then take somebody throwing out a potential 25 pt RB in the TE spot against you OUT of the equation. Sometimes your best offense is a good defense.
i feel like this is exactly what my purpose as commissioner is. to fix egregious errors which this is.
this is not your purpose as a commissioner. your purpose as a commissioner is to enforce the rules of the league and maintain it's integrity. it is not to override what the platform/website has in place. if you want to fix it, you fix it next year with approval from the league. this isn't one person bending the rules that you have to snap into line, it's potentially one person doing what is allowed by the system.
years ago i was in a league and I won 3 titles in my first 4 years. before I get too much into it, also know that I am a serial running back hoarder. anyway, my boss was league commish and wasn't happy that I was winning, so he proposed a rule in the off-season for positional limits on players on your roster. essentially he wanted to limit us to 4 RB and 4 WR total, so that I couldn't hoard like 7 RB like I liked to. My take on it was, if I want 1 QB, 1 TE, 1 K and 1 DST on my team and want the rest of my bench to be made up RB and WR, who are you to dictate the makeup of my team? I also pointed out that EVERYBODY had the same opportunity to do so, via draft, FA acquisition, trades, whatever. So the season starts and I discover that sure enough, I can have only 4 "RB", but i can also have something like 4-5 RB/TE/WR on my team as "Flex" designation (CBS league). So when it was all said and done, essentially out of spite, I had 4 RB as "RB" and 5 more RB as "Flex". Petty of me? Probably. But I didn't cheat, I worked within the system (and won a title that year). So he started to change it, during season, to which the league unequivocally said "NO".
Bottom line is, just like in life, things aren't fair. There are quirks, loopholes and glitches that people take advantage of every day which are completely within the rules and legal but benefit them because they are aware of them and act more quickly than others. Unilaterally trying to legislate fairness is an act of futility because it cannot be accomplished.
