Above is the reason why I love this site.

PS, I went with barbed wire. Felt more manly.

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.
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.

Is your league H2H? Roto?

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.

Shoulda gone with Barb Wire. It would provide a great ice breaker if you ever met Pam Anderson.

What about Chumpdump?

When you drop a guy (dump him) and end up feeling like a chump.

Can be used in the past and future tense -
e.g. dropping Stanton two days after he got called up was such a chumpdump
or
e.g. while Dominic Brown isn't getting a lot of playing time right now, don't chumpdump him yet

Chump dump is already a term.

And here I was thinking I was so smart.
Guess "Add a new term to the Razzball Glossary" won't be checked off my bucket list today.

How about Dumple Stiltskin?

the lesser known cousin of Rumple (He of Grimm's fairy tale acclaim), Dumple makes fantasy owners guess what the true date will be when their underperforming players finally break out, and wins when you drop a player right before the hot streak you've been waiting for. He is successful much more often then his cousin, who got greedy when he asked for the first born child.

Don't think it works, but valiant effort.
