Rebounding from 0-3

All you have to do is look at the team that currently holds the last playoff spot in your league. What is that teams record? You will find that even at 0-3 right now, AT MOST you are two games out of playoffs, and in some leagues you will only be one game out the playoff race.

See, that doesnt seem all that bad now does it?

If your team is scoring well, but poor matchups...dont fret. You will come roaring back. Just have to make the playoffs. I start 1-4 and finished 3rd and won championship.

Once I started 0-3... it was my first ever year in FF. Then I went something like 7 more straight losses... but finally wound up with 3 wins overall for the year.

So no matter how it's going... you still have a shot at winning each week... good luck! ;-D

I started 0-5 two years ago. Then went on a tear and won 6 str8 to make the playoffs and lost in the semi's. It can happen, but you're going to need to get lucky most likely. I got lucky with Pittman that year, he went on a tear after Alstott got hurt, plus McGahee took over for Henry that year and was a BEAST!! If you're scoring points then I wouldn't worry too much about it. ;-D

Just stay active with the WW. The worst thing to do with a bad start is become disinterested. Play matchups. Play the hot hand. Get scrappy!

Everyone is right- just make it to the playoffs. And right now, you can't be more than a game or two out.

I started something like 5-1 last year then priest goes down, and the guy that robbed Larry from me in the 6th round was 0-6 ended up winning every game from there on out including beating me in the championship.

I started 8-0 last year, and never won another game.

This year (roster in my signature below), I'm 0-3. I think I have a good roster, I just keep leaving points on my bench (Favre weeks 2 and 3, Parker week 3).

I've gone 0-3 and turned it around. That team looks decent for an 8 team league.

8 Teams, Standard Scoring (no PPR) Start 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, IK, 1D/ST:

QB: Warner, Bulger
RB: Alexander, Bush, McGahee, Parker
WR: Harrison, Holt, M. Jones, R. Smith, Stallworth
TE: Heap, Watson
K: Akers
D/ST: Buffalo, Philly

I'm gonna drop Buffalo (Thanks for Nothin' Ladies :-P ) and R. Smith's on thin ice too.

Looks like an OK Squad on Paper, but it's just not translating into points/wins.

Probably doesn't help that through three weeks my Points against average is 111/game.

Your scoring average is the key to your panic level. You have a high scoring team so the wins will come. Before you dump the Bills remember that they are at home against the Mia and Tenn in weeks 15 & 16. Buffalo is no place to play that time of year. Could be golden D for the playoffs. I might want to consider trading for a QB upgrade. GL dude.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?
