well, Gado worked out pretty well for me last week.
I also got burned by Eli. And with Bulger on my bench. Shame on me! Seemed like a good idea at the time...
Anyway, from these two examples, you can see that it's just calculated risks and educated guesses that might lead to a win. That's why the pros play the games every Sunday, and that's why the number one guy in your league can lose to the dude in last.
As they say on Wall Street, past history does not guarantee future success...
So, in conclusion, to directly answer your question: yeah, sometimes.
