noun - "yank-mee-tacks"
The earlier pick or extra auction money a manager throws away to yank a player from their favorite team off the available list, named after the countless Yankees fans who do this every year without fail.

-- "I love Mariano Rivera, but I'm just not willing to pay the Yankme Tax to get him on my roster."

-- "No way I'll be able to steal Alfonso Soriano. My league has a few big Cubs fans, so I can count on one of them paying the Yankme tax to grab him."

I mentioned this somewhere on the site previously, so I'm assuming you either aren't fond of it or perhaps I just needed to post it in the right place. If it's the latter...

Seems like there's an area here for a glossary add, but not sure this is the word. I'll let Rudy have a say...

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.

I think naming it after one team limits the universality of it. how about...

Fanny Pick - When someone picks a player in the draft before they should because they are a fan of the team. Like Fanny Packs, they look ridiculous and real men have nothing to do with them.

The doff wasn't necessary (you nailed it, Rudy), but much appreciated.
