    Yes, get replacements for this round. Not sure if you have noticed, but players from those teams no longer have those check marks (which indicates the player is set to start/play).

    Average of the points scored by the players the coach used in the game. So if a coach used all his subs (14 players), you'd total up the points scored among the 14 players and divide by 14.

    Bumping since thread since we are less than 3 weeks away. The Cartola market hasn't opened up yet, so I can't add anyone new yet. I'll let you guys know as soon it is open for registration.

    I've already set up my team, even though we are 2 weeks out and no one knows who will exactly start, especially on the smaller teams and the teams in the Libertadores. The vicio begins...haha

    Not 100% active. Ask them Gilmar Cool Rob Imperador3

    MatthausSammer - I know you asked about this before. It's open and you can register.

    I know there are some people out there that should play....

    Hey everyone sorry to be a stranger. First off, belated thanks to Mengao for organizing this. I joined late last year, and I can't tell you how cool Cartola is. I had a blast doing it. Usually I only follow the big teams, but Cartola forces you to pay attention to everyone and really expands your understanding of the league, top to bottom. I'm in this year and certainly encourage folks to join in at the start . Thanks again Mengao!

    And the lineup tweaking begins. Just made a couple changes. FYI, the iPhone app for Cartola is still outdated. They still have Atletico Goianiense and I couldn't find players from Vitoria.

    I think my lineup is pretty much done now. I bet the players I benched will go off and the ones I started will stink just like any other fantasy game I play. :rolleyes:

    Can you believe some people are elite at Cartola? The other league I am in has two dudes who finish 1 and 2 every year and there are around 30 people in the league and they all are active and follow the Brasileirao. This is my first year in this league so I will believe it when I see it. I guess some people can make this game a science. People even take field conditions into play hahaha.

    Too much luck is involved for someone to consistently finishing the top 1 or 2.
