Aw, man. Someone in the comments just said I could use either.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!

well, that person might be right

flyer
Definition of FLYER:
variant of flier

Based on the definitions I'd say the "real" word is flier (since it actually has a definition), and a variant of that word is flyer, which I guess gives you some artistic license.
