Well, i hope there's still a chance. In my 12 team money league(start 1 qb, 2 rb, 2wr, 1 te, 1 dst, 1 k), i have........
Bledsoe, Grossman, Romo(must carry one of your qb's backups)
Rudi, Dunn, Dillon, C Brown, Buckhalter
ROY, B Edwards, G Jennings, Matt Jones
LJ Smith, Putzier(gonna try and do somethin about Putzier before LJ's bye)
have to carry 2 dst's and 2 te's and 2 k's.
I'm 0-3 and i hope it gets better. wk 2 i had the 2nd most points in our league.

Obviously this isn't groundbreaking discovery, but it's interesting to see certain players listed frequently in this thread, such as Bledsoe, Barber, Gates...etc. Kinda like how Westbrook/McNabb are on almost every top Yahoo team at the moment

Yep, and a lot of the players being mentioned have been putting up good yardage totals, just no TDs yet.
It's certainly not time to panic for all you 0-3 teams. Just do your best to figure out which players will bounce back (hold onto them, duh) and which ones won't (get rid of them, duh again).
I'm playing another 0-3 team this week (who also has a good roster). In fact, Yahoo's fantasy matchups page has us scoring more points than every team in the league...every week Yahoo predicts my team to score in the 70s or 80s and every week we go out and put up 54 or something equally lame
It is amazing-but expectedly obvious i guess with all the teams out there- how many great rosters here have such poor records. So much of fantasy is luck, and to echo some comments , 0-3 you can come back from.
Last year I was 1-4, and I ended up 9-4 (It helped I had LJ on my team and Mike Anderson who became the fulltime starter in my flex mixed with ...Shaun Alexander).
But to whoever posted about it, Id say 0-6 is the end of it, 0-5 is possible, but you have to win that week. I had a similar roster in one league, and LJ/Anderson just wasnt enough. I was 0-5-1 and finished 6-5-2.
Good luck all people with crappy starts, persevere
He who would trade liberty for some temporary security, deserves neither liberty nor security.
Should be applied to our current global situation and fantasy football as well.
0-3 is perfectly exceptable as long as you dont have any lingering injuries and at least one of the games it could have gone either way. Things usually even themselves out, but its mainly luck anyways.
Marv Levy used to say that sometimes it was better to be lucky than good. I have gone 0-3 in my 10-team league with this basic lineup:
Cadillac (looking like "bust" material)
I have lost to guys with inferior lineups and have had the QB buzz-saw (week one, McNabb, week 2 PManning) and last week I benched a questionable Coles for a "starting" Chris Brown who, by the way, didn't even step on the field.
The maddening thing is that there is precious little you can do other than trade or hit the ww, or even just ride it out and pray that things get better for you.
