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

Thanks Luck for single-handedly giving the Broncos defense 20 points

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.

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.

I sat him for Roethlisburger. 

Made sense at the time. 

:facepalm:

I don't know what to do with it.  Good players that all crapped the bed the same week

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:

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.

0-2 in my main 2 leagues but I feel fine. 

 

Start-up dynasty and I drafted and still have Kevin White, Treadwell and Perriman. Deep bench but it still hurts to hold all these guys

Regretting a draft-day decision in a contract/keeper.  I had the 17th overall rookie pick, and then the 8th pick in the veteran FA rounds.  Was looking QB/RB primarily with those picks.  Went with Goff over Wentz :bag: (Prescott went 16th) and then the best RB left in the vet rounds was Stewart  :wall:

Had I gone RB/WR instead, I could have had DeAndre Washington or Tyler Ervin, and then Derek Carr with the vet pick.

Thanks to perpetually stretched hammy man Alshon, I'm going to be trapped potentially playing 2 crappy TEs in Barnidge, and if Shon can't play Sunday, Fleener as my Monday night insurance policy.

Aaaaand now my week 2 WIN has been changed to a LOSS thanks to Sportsline updating scores apparently moments before the game kicked off tonight. My opponent's DL got 2 assisted tackles and his LB got a solo tackle and I lost by .4 points. 

On a Thursday. 

Unbelievable.

This worked out the opposite for me. I had initially lost by two, but Eli Rogers was retroactively given a fumble to give me a one point win. I've been trying to figure out in which scenario they can go back and give someone a lost fumble, but i don't really care. :unsure:

Beckham, Fitz, K. Benjamin

Felt pretty good before the start of the day.  Still a long way to go, but not liking the 1st quarter+ so far. (and I benched McCoy to flex Fitz)

 

Into the 3rd quarter...Benjamin does not even have a target...Fitz with one reception for 3 yards.

:X

Start Miami's D 'cause it's the Browns!  :unsure:

Just out of curiosity, is it standard FF scoring that your D is penalized for a pick 6?

CJ really crapped out today. Miami D is a joke. I'm 0-2 and down big thanks to my opponent starting Vikes DST and Justin Tucker. Combined 30+ pts. Just horrible luck. Looking like my first ever 0-3 start in 24 years of fantasy football.
