Spot-starting: Picking up a free agent for a favorable matchup, usually just 1 game
Cherry-picking: Only playing your owned SPs in favorable matchups

NEW TERM
Berry-Picking: Grabbing a FA who has a string of favorable matchups coming and playing him in all of them.

I grabbed Dickey for his stretch of PIT/SD then home against striggling Cards. That's not just picking cherries, it's picking multiple berries.

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.

"Berry-Picking" sounds like the reason you'd suck at fantasy sports. (ESPN side-swipe! hahaha.. ..ha. ..heh. ..-gets drunk and watches Susan Boyle audition on loop-)
