Or the game may not happen at all if not on Tuesday.  They could let each team just play 15 games.  If they do a week 18 game that will screw up the playoff schedule the byes and so forth.  Hopefully we have seen the last of the outbreak and they can play on Tuesday many people have a lot riding on that game in fantasy.

The players would object to this since they won't get paid.

Everyone here had to know that the NFL was not going to let that game go on 

without Jackson. So as soon as his name was mentioned the game was slated

to be played when he was ready to play. So if he is still positive when the game

is to go on the NFL will delay it again. Bet on it.

 

 

 

10 day minimum for Jackson. That's the rule.

Ahh... forgot about the 10 day minimum. The NFL will find a way to ensure this game is not 

played without Jackson. I am sure of it.

 

You're sure of your opinion, that's all. I'd actually bet against the upcoming PIT-BAL game including Lamar.

The NFL is far more concerned about the effects of cascading scheduling issues during a pandemic than they are Lamar Jackson playing a game or not.

NFL cancelled Ravens practice scheduled for this morning, per league source. Ravens last practiced the Saturday before the Titans’ game and currently are scheduled to play in Pittsburgh on Tuesday night. Ravens’ travel plans in flux, with snow forecasted in Pitt on Tuesday am.

The article says they might move it to Wednesday or Thursday night.

The FF host sites will have to extend week 11 thru whichever is chosen.  That will really f up the waiver wires which I assume would commence on Thursday or Friday.

And now JK Dobbins and Ingram are both back after their covid quarantine period.  So even if I did start my (many) Balt/Pitt players, GusEdeards loses all appeal as a high volume replacement. 

 

This game is snakebit.

I just heard that it will be treated the same as if it were a Tuesday game. It will count towards this week and the system will hold off on waivers until the week has completed.

MFL:

 

  1. How will the Week 12 Ravens-Steels schedule change effect my league?
Answer: For week 12, the Ravens-Steelers game has been moved (again) to Wednesday at 3:40pm ET. 

The NFL made a similar change back in week 5, but here is a reminder of how things will be handled this week: 

The scores will count in the current week. So the upcoming Wed afternoon game will be included in week 12 scores. 

IMPORTANT: Please do NOT change any of your league calendar or waiver settings. 

* The system will still process your waiver events, but they will be delayed until about 2 hours after the Wednesday game is completed. 

* In other words, there will be a waiver "blackout" from Monday night until Wednesday. Any waiver events that you have scheduled between the end of the Monday night game and the end of the Wed game will be postponed until after the Wed game is finished being processed. This will happen automatically, so you don't need to change any of your league settings or calendar events. 

* About 2 hours after the Wed game is completed, the final scores and standings for week 12 will be calculated. It will take a couple of hours to process the final stats and generate the final results and update the standings, so plesae be patient after the game ends! All of the waiver processing that would normally have been done on Tuesday and Wednesday will be processed a couple of hours after the Wed game is done. 

How will this affect your league? For most leagues that lock players on Sunday or Monday and then process waivers (blind bidding or regular waivers) on Wed nights, this postponed game will not change much. Everything will still operate like a normal week except that you'll have to wait longer for the final results. Then after the standings are updated on Wed (shortly after the game), your Wed night waivers will process as usual. 

If your league normally does waiver processing on Tuesdays or Wednesdays during the day, then those transactions will be delayed automatically. You won't need to make any changes to your league calendar. The waivers will still process, but not until a couple of hours after the Wednesday game results are finalized.

I guess the only question is this.... The processing of the waivers is delayed, but the deadline to submit waivers remains the same, correct?  If you waivers typically run at 7 PM Central (on Wed), they'll run a few hours later.  But, I'm assuming the deadline for submissions remains the same?
