Had a bit of luck so far.  I impulsively went over my $48 target for A.J. Green and spent $54 because he was the last top-tier WR.  Later thought I should have gotten Keenan Allen instead, who went for $39.  Couldn't be happier about it now.

Also, I paid for Bell and the D.Williams owner made a too kind offer to swap him for Justin Forsett.  I took it before he had a chance to retract.

I have Decker in 3 out of 4 leagues.  In one of them I almost substituted with Watkins to keep from too much exposure if Decker laid an egg.   I didnt like the idea of starting behind the eight ball in 3 leagues if that happened.   Thankfully I stuck with Decker and am now looking good in all 3 .

Can't wait for suspensions / injuries to clear up.  Lineup will be Wilson, Le'veon Bell, Matt Forte, Mike Evans, Desean Jackson, Gronk.  Sitting with Flacco for Wilson, DWil for Bell and Pitta for Gronk, still should be pretty OK for this next week or two.  Won the league last year, definitely a potential back to back champ team!

Started my week with Jets D, coming off Week 1 with 7 sacks on Cincy, facing the Bills who had less than 200 yards total offense week 1.  So the Jets man up and get me a whopping.....2 points, for one interception.  Ok, slow start. 

Also my opponent this week has Forte and Decker.  Forte finishes the night with 100 yards exactly which is 5 bonus points in my league.  Thanks Todd Bowles for allowing your horse who already rushed for 3 TDs to play until the very final whistle and get those last 3-4 yards out of the end of the game.  No "thanks for your hard work, go have a breather, we'll let Powell grind the last 1:15 out of the clock for you".  Awesome...

I'm in a second league with Shady McCoy.  Slow night for him, couldn't get much yardage, finally started to break a few 8-9 yard runs out, busted a good one on the last drive for 15+, but nah, let's have Gillislee spell him in the red zone and vulture that TD at the end. 

Where's my shirt?

I kind of went heavy on the injury discounts this year, maybe from seeing how much injuries changed last year.  I have Le'Veon Bell, DeAngelo Williams, Tyler Eifert, Spencer Ware, Tyrell Williams (FAAB), Jay Ajayi, Martellus Bennett, and Jordy Nelson, all of whom are currently affected by their own injuries or others'.

We'll see how that plays out.

Now that it is final, I will say that I won last week 100-99.9.  And my opponent had cousins, so thank you nfl for not overturning that last int.

GB this game of skill.

Picked up Forte for $9 in an stranded $140 total bid auction league. Everyone looked past him, fracking steal of the draft!

Lost Keenan Allen last week but figured I'd be ok in a PPR with Woodhead as his replacement.  #### this ####

This might be my worst fantasy football weekend ever. I may go 0-5 in my money leagues after going 4-1 last week. I sat Matt Ryan for Andrew Luck.

venting:

one league I'm up by 1 point and my opponent has Eddie Lacy left. Unless Lacy misses the alarm clock, I'm sunk.  I agonized over who to start at RB all week. R.Jennings, A.Foster, TJ Yeldon or Ingram. Posted to the Asst coach forum - finally settled on a lineup this morning, and played the right one by benching Foster!  And the rest of those scrubs scored like 7 points each. And Foster got hurt, as a bonus. All that wasted energy - time I'll never have back. 

 

in my other league, Danny woodhead / Dante moncrief. Yeah - so much for my flex spot for a while...winning this week, but that hurts. Holding my breath for updates.

Made sense at the time.

Lost by .54.  Changed my lineup from week 1.  Would have won if I kept it the same.

Really the only thread I can put this in and it serves as a form of catharsis.  2 weeks into the season and my season for fantasy is over.  Too many injuries.  I hope my league enjoys the cash donation

Change your team name to "the spoilers" and make every week your championship game.

knew I should've gone with matt ryan over Russell Wilson, but got talked into it by the experts.  Ohh I still could win even with AP going down.....if Ryan Matthews put up less than 5 points today.  That Russell Wilson pointless fumble at the end of the half was killer.

Brag -- I get to free up 2 spots by dropping Woodhead and Allen

Vent -- I have to free up 2 spots by dropping Woodhead and Allen

 

With Deangelo losing his starting role in 2 weeks, I went from probably the most dominant team in the league to one where I may not be able to fill out a legit roster.  Also, I'm 0-2 because of playing 2 of the highest scoring teams.  Better luck next year     :ptts:

venting/grieving:

 

has there ever been a fantasy football player who's value has risen, fallen, risen and fallen so dramatically in a 3 week span without playing a single down as Josh Gordon? 

Had a couple pretty solid trade offers for him before the season started. Declined.

After week 1 no one wanted him. 

The it was revealed that RGIII was done and the offers came in again with word that McClown would start. 

Now :crickets: again. 

:wall:

I'm so glad for RB's I invested in guys whose coach keeps rotating in other backs 

J Langford

L Murray

R Mathews

What an absolute total crappy week. Pretty much benched everyone I had to to squeak out a loss.

Had Ryan Mathews playing tonight.  My opponent was done.  I would have already won had I started Crowell or Melvin Gordon.  When Mathews scored on the sweep I went up by approximately a quarter of a point.  His next two subsequent carries were for a loss.  I lost by less than a half point.  

Good times

#1

Bragging: Down five with only Langford left. He got me exactly six.

Grieving: Langford is a starter on my team. 

 

#2

Grieving: Lost big in another league because I started Luck over Ryan.

Bragging: Langford did so poorly I would have lost anyway, so not fretting the bad decision anymore.

Grieving: I have Langford on that team, too (wasn't targeting him).

Bragging: Gordon takes his spot next week.
