Now that I've calmed down a bit.

However, those who started Volek need to remember his big games were against teams with crappy pass defenses (Oak, KC and Indy). I know he has had the hot hand but if you looked at the matchup and what was on the line, the conclusion would have been sitting him against a pissed off Denver defense with a lot on the line.
Every site I got my info from. INCLUDING the people here said to start Volek. With his past performance he looked like a solid 10-15 points, not -2. The fact remains he screwed us. All the experts, all the sites, and about 80% of the people here.
Billy has been solid bordering on spectacular in a half-dozen starts in place of Steve McNair, and he's had a particularly impressive run against AFC West foes, averaging 398 yards and three touchdowns per game in three previous meetings with clubs from that division. We'll pencil him in for 300 and three here, and if he's good Santa might leave another 100 and a touch in his stocking.
To say people that started Volek got what they paid for is the biggest insult I've ever read here. It's all nice and hunky dorey once it's allready over and you know Volek messed up. Hindsight is always 20/20.
We just got burned, it happens. No one forced us to play Volek. Was just a lot of recomendations. I am willing to bet next year when the same situation happens and the hot guy explodes, we will all be singing a different tune.
I've learned in my first year of FF that is nothing more than who is better at guessing. Well after this lesson learned I plan to be a better guesser next year. I only had two teams this year, and to get one of them to the championship in my first year means a lot to me. My other team missed the playoffs by a half a game, and lost the first round of consolation cause of the poor performance of the eagles offense.
The only part that is really bumming me out as I type this at 6am is it will be another year before ALL of us get to play again.
Unless you are playing salary cap games etc. My cap team exploded this week. I had Brees, L. Tomlinson, R. Droughns
L. Evans, J. Elam playing. heehee

This is only my opinion, if you play the players I suggest and they do not perform well, please don't yell at me.
