TARP'ing: the act of a player "bailing you out" and single-handedly keeping you competitive despite a series of poor decisions and bad luck that would otherwise have doomed you.

In a sentence: "Dude I hung my hopes on B.J. Upton, Alexei Ramirez, and Jimmy Rollins. I should totally be buried 6 feet deep in the standings but Pujols is TARP'ing me and I'm hanging out in 4th place"

I like the thought....it's got potential.....just not sure i love saying 'TARP' or TARP'ed...or TARP'ing....could also get confused with the tarp for the rain delay....

grey...any thoughts?

Sounds like it would be a saber stat... Not crazy about it.

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.
