Two game weeks have always been a bit of a double-edged sword for us here at the blog. On one hand, they add some much needed complexity to the usual task of blogging about a single week's worth of match-ups. On the other hand, they make that column really difficult to write because you have to account for injuries, rotations, and multiple match-ups for each team and player that you're considering. In anticipation of our first two-match week of the season, I sent an email to "The Powers That Be" at Yahoo to confirm that it would indeed be a two-game week and much to my surprise, the answer was "no" - they are doing away with two-match weeks (at least the scheduled ones) for this season. Since our email exchange, they have posted the official announcement on the game's main page. This means three things to be aware of:
1) We'll only be commenting on the weekend matches in TWA and I&S
2) We'll try to turn around a second post on Sunday evening or Monday morning to get you ready for the midweek matches - hopefully, injury reports and updates will be readily available in time for us to incorporate them.
3) I assume that the transfer cut off for mid-week matches will be late Monday/early Tuesday depending on where you live.
Should be an interesting week as we see a new wrinkle in our (mostly) beloved fantasy game.
