CBS....illegal tactic?

So in my CBS league, I have a trade that goes through tonight and I will have 2 empty bench spots.

I want to pick up 2 players right now, which would make my lineup for next week illegal but as of 1:07 AM tonight my lineup would be ok due to the trade going through.


Thoughts?

if you can do it, it is not illegal. maybe I don't understand?

Not sure if you can. I mean it would make me illegal for next week momentarily but I figure who cares at the moment because it will be ok soon enough.

CBS will only let you make the preemptive add if your commissioner's rosters limits allow for the extra players otherwise it will make you drop someone to complete the transaction. I do 2 for 1's all the time and hate waiting our 2 day trade voting period when there is someone you want out there right now!

You can definitely have illegal lineups in CBS leagues, as long as your using the commissioner package, which it sounds like you are. What you're doing is not illegal. You'll have that extra guy on your roster, but you're in a weekly scoring league so it's not like it matters. Essentially what you have is just a couple extra days to decide which of those guys you'll want to drop.
