Glad I listened to my stomach today.

I am glad that I started K. Jones this week over J. Jones. I just had that feeling even after everyone told me not to do it. I just hope that J. Jones does not top him on monday.

Yup, picked up R. Curry and started him in place of H. Ward this morning... that move won my head-to-head against my cousin for the final playoff spot. ;-D

My gut told me not to start Santana Moss and Keary Colbert. Problem is that my only option was Anquan Boldin... Boy, you´re screwed if you drafted Moss, Pennington and Price within rounds 3 to 8 (14 team league...)... :~


You´re really screwed if you have to win against a pretty bad team that features some hot players. Who would have guessed that he´ll probably beat me because of R. Curry, K. Jones and T.J. Houshmandzadeh... :-[

Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I don't like that attitude. I can assure them it is much more serious than that.

Unfortunately, my gut said nothing about starting Drew Bennett, who put 30+ up sitting my bench.

was it just me, or was there a ton of gut this week? it seemed that there were an exceptional number of slacking studs making comebacks, fantasy duds playing the role of studs, and studs playing poorly- the perfect recipe (in hindsight) for good gut calls.

Exibit A: Clinton Portis- it was clear the Betts thing annoyed him and was total BS, he had played so poorly lately that people (especially here, not that Clinton Portis reads this forum... or does he.... portisfan....) were questioning his ability and benching him for the JJs, TJs, and SJs of the world- I personally have started Blaylock over him even when Blaylock had terrible matchups (read NE)- it just seemed ripe for a motivated game on his part. Couple that with a self-destructing Giants team made my gut scream run Clinton run!

Exibit B: Porter/Curry- after the Kerry explosion last week, the favorable matchup had many people's guts screaming to go with the former bane of fantasy existence- the Oakland offense. It worked nicely for those of us who ran with it.

Exibit C: Ahman/Naj- Everyone near Philly knows that the Eagles are still looking for the respect that Green Bay gets, despite the fact that they're by far the best team in the (pitiful) NFC. I don't think anyone thought that Green Bay's offense would get THIS shut down, but at least I had a feeling that an inspired defense looking for respect would at least take the ailing GB rushing game out of it.

I always trust my gut too. One time my gut told me I was hungry so I went to eat a sandwich.
