Forgive me if there is already a glossary term, but this is one of my biggest peeves in fantasy...

It seems to never fail...you're sittin there, letting your little baby sleeper incubate on the WW and the second that he does something remotely interesting the fantasy world goes bananas and he's the most added player in the universe.

I likin it to C Blocking...

Suggestions:

Funston Blocked

Haha, i feel your pain man. I think Funstoned or Yahooed would also work, despite their simplicity.

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.

Case in point. I've been watchin Beachy since ST and he goes out and has a sneaky good line yesterday and Pianowski of Yahoo blasts him on the front page alarming every Tom, Dick and Dumbass about this kid who, until yesterday, was a nobody to 90% of the fantasy world (or 11/12 of my fantasy league). And now, he's been scooped before I can make a move.

That's their job, i suppose... but I wish they'd leave at least a few stones unturned and mysteries unrevealed throughout the season.

How about

Better grab Beachy before he gets a Funston Makeover

ugh... you guys are better at this..haha.

Only thing i can come up with is something like Funston Burner, as in burned by Funston. Probably too cheesy. "I was gonna grab Beachy but he became a Funston Burner and yada yada yada"

I can't quite reel it on home but i agree with your premise 100%
