I'm not a fan of weekly-set lineups because you're stuck with a lineup throughout the week and can only use 10 out of your 13 players each week. If a player suddenly gets hurt on Mon, then you're screwed out of one roster spot for an entire week. Plus, it tends to give less reward to teams that have depth through all 13 spots. Ever since switching to daily lineup changes, I've never wanted to go back to weekly for those reasons. It also further exaggerates the whole # of games played each week factor that I dislike in H2H, making it possible to have weeks where you sit your best player(s) for an entire week simply because they only have 2 games during.

Weekly leagues are awful. I've done it with baseball, those teams end up on the back burner, nowhere near as interesting. Daily please.

A vote for daily lineups....haven't given much thought to weekly transactions but don't see much of a need to go there.

I kind of like that. Weekly transactions with a waiver budget.

Is this possible on Yahoo?

RE: Weekly transactions -- in a standard league I'd say a good 80% of pickups are free agents, 20% of pickups are players off waivers. FAAB money doesn't apply to free agents, so going with daily transactions and having a bidding system is kind of pointless. You're only using the FAAB budget 20% of the time.

You could place every unowned player on waivers that run every night, and owners would have to use their FAAB budget to claim guys. Having done FAAB style free agency in football and baseball leagues, I think that is the best way to use the system.

That said, I'm fine with whatever the group decides on transactions. Also, after thinking about it, I change my vote to daily lineups. Basketball is not well suited for weekly lineups because of the disparity in games played by teams every week.

That would have to be don"manually" right? I don't think there is a Yahoo setting for this. And I wouldn't trust the commish to be able to do this every day throughout the season (placing every unowned player on waivers). ;-)
Yes, Warriors sold at last!
