Here is a spin-off of bad draft picks that hurt your team. Started by philthy.

Try this on for size.

Before the season started...

give: Steven Davis

get: Ashley Lelie

what a gem. give me some credit. I was super-stacked at rbs.

terrible. 406 yards and 11 TDs later. :~( :~( :~(

lelie has a waaaaa-ping 339 yards and 1 freaking TD.

I've made one trade and i don't think it's worked out well for either of us...I get: Randy Moss and Chris Brown. I give: Clinton Portis and Anquan Boldin. Both Moss and Boldin were hurt and Brown has been average at best...Portis had one great game and nothing really besides that TD wise.

I overpaid for Chad Johnson.

Early in the year, it seemed like he put up 100 yds and 1 td every single game.

I traded for him 3 weeks ago and here are his stats:
WK 7: 4 rec for 94 yards
WK 8: 5 for 62
WK 9: 5 for 91
WK 10: BYE

I gave up Joey Galloway, Tom Brady and Joe Horn for CJ

I thought Galloway was a good sell-high player but he keeps putting up monster numbers every week! 8-o :,-(

bledsoe and gates (gave them away for) bulger. this only looks worse when considering that it's a point-per-reception scoring system.

might still work out if bulger comes back strong. :-o

I traded S Jackson (when his ribs were bruised) and Barlow for Priest (coming off a bye with Roaf healthy). Martz and Bulger go down, Faulk disappears, and Jackson goes off. Priest goes down. I got nothing in the trade! The good news is that I already had LJ, so I'm now fielding a backfield of Edge and LJ. A terrible trade, but it actually didn't hurt me.

Week 4, I gave S Davis, C Portis, K McCardell for T Owens and R Williams. :-t

Then to shore up my RB situation I trade for Priest. I got to use him for 1 game. :~(

Thank god I also traded for LJ. (But still . . . )

You'll all be hard pressed to beat this one.

I traded Ladanian Tomlinson, Steve Smith and Willie Parker

to receive

Edgerrin James and Terrell Owens

The very next week Tomlinson and Smith each had 3 touchdowns.

And to think, I made the trade so I could finally have a "stud" receiver. That worked out real well for me.
