With so many big names set to miss out this weekend, I'm sure we'll see a bunch of very different teams. I'm planning on starting pretty much from scratch from the draft team I had put together earlier in the week as I had planned on bringing in Alexis at retail. I'll surely be agonizing over my team selection right up to the deadline this week.

How have these injuries and suspensions affected your thinking for this week? Are you planning on holding onto your discounts, or bringing in new players?
