I like ITR bonus, it's a good gamble. Sure you can pick an obvious dumpster fire, but then the owner is waiting for a specific coach and/or picks and doesn't mind tanking. And you are stuck with a 0 or 1 win team when you could have snagged some points. Or you get it in week 2. Such is life.

Tanking for a higher draft pick? Seems like a bit of a waste in the NFL because it takes so many players to make a football team. It's not like basketball where 2 or 3 good players (or even one if it's a Michael Jordan) can make a dynasty.

Mulligans should only be used in the current week. If you pick Monday’s game and lose so be it. My humble opinion

Exception noted.

The idea was to allow a “do over.” I thought it would be too weird for the playoffs. I just never considered the problem with picking the last game of a week.

I agree with izittrue. In thinking about, Monday game is really just a late game in the week and should not get any special privileges. Just like Thursday game being the earliest does not nor should matter.

There is nothing "special" about it. Not being able to use a Mulligan with it is what makes it "special."

I've always considered the Mulligan as something to be used strategically. I usually hold on to it until near the end when trying to pick up a team that has won a lot.

There's some rumblings about postponing the Titans game. Made me think we should discuss some rule variation in case it keeps happening.

Yeah, sort have been thinking about it.

I guess that one can reserve a pick if they really want it, then it applies when and if the game happens. The problem, of course, is if the game is delayed after other games, a few key players could get injured and that.

Fortunately, no one has picked one yet.

Well, let me see what Youse Guys think about it before I start thinking out loud.
