Whaa! There is risk to stockpiling players. Sometimes the you don't have enough roster spots and you drop someone that helps someone else while you wait for stockpile to get in the lineup. I picked up Fargas and Young(rbs) early and sat them for weeks, finally during my qb bye week I had to let go of Fargas, he has since become the starter in Oakland and had a great day yesterday. Meanwhile, Young, who finally starts playing over Henry, gets injured and another flash from nowhere Hall, takes over. Then in my 12 teamer - I drafted Maroney, Portis(over AD, and I was on the fence, 4th round), and Jamal Lewis. None of them could stay healthy and when they did, outside of Portis, put up no numbers. So I pick up Young and Grant. Now they are performing, but I can't seem to pick the best 2 of the 5 to start each week. I finally got Lewis to perform in my lineup, he usually performs on my bench and does nothing when I start him. This week Portis did nothing and Grant lit it up on my bench. Young was injured. You can call that stockpiling, but there have still been weeks where only one of the 5 has performed. Meanwhile I had to drop my backup tight end - Lee, who has been better than my starter, Witten the last 4 weeks. I agree with the others play it out. Whatever you do, do not drop all your players for some playoff team to gain an advantage. In fact if you have a waiver order in your league, you should be scouting the best Hot guys and trying to add them.
