I'm fine with 3 moves a week,it just surprised me when I tried to make a much needed pick up and couldn't.I don't usually make a lot of moves but my line-up is terrible this season and needs tweaking.

1 injured reserve slot would be great though.

Why I never bet $$ on Fantasy....Julio Jones has had me a great game already, but with a blowout like this surely he'll be benched soon, if not the whole second half (though I hope I'm wrong)

I picked up Harry Douglas on a whim just to have somebody to watch tonight.  That opening touchdown was nice, but guess what?  He's injured!  Plus this blowout.

I hate Thursday games. I work so many hours during the week, I oftentimes forget about Thursday. Forgot today and had Roddy White in as my starter. He sat out this week. Oi.

If this team keeps going the way it is; I will be auto drafting every single league I am in.

Actually this is even better proof why it's crazy to bet money on FF
Given that I have Julio and my opponent has the Tampa Bay defense LOL I thought for sure I'd be slaughtering already. They managed 14some point!?!? I tuned out of that game so guess I missed the 3 fumble recoveries, as well as the defensive touchdown. 

I'm totally OK with it, we should reward defenses, just shows why FF isn't worth betting money on. Almost 15 points from a defense that allowed 56 pointsLOL
That said, I feel OK with my autodrafted team. Has worked out so far!

We could increase the severity for letting defenses score more that 35points(we can not go higher than 35). Currently it stands at minus 5 points. We could make it -10pts, for you get +10pts if your defense keeps their opponents to a scoreless game. Or we could add/minus points for allowing 28-34 points/21-27 points/ etc.. but I rather dislike that.

Also betting money is called gambling. And gambling, by its own definition, is a risk. This doesn't mean it isn't worth it, just that for you the risk/reward ratio does not suit your playing style. I don't gamble on FF because I live in a state where online gambling is illegal, but there are plenty of big risks in FF, and big risks = big rewards.
