If you have nothing useful to say (and scanning over your last 50 or so posts that definitely seems to be the case for you) you should say nothing at all, thanks.

Anyone else have that one opponent who is, like, the Peyton Manning of your league?


Nope. I'm that guy.

This is a community site, you get out of it what you put into it. That's how these things work.

I've had quite the opposite experience as I've been smoking my friends in every fantasy sport since I've started coming aroun here.

I'm the guy in question in two of my "usual" money leagues but there's one with very odd (and TD heavy) scoring that I just can't seem to break. I come out of the draft feeling like I have a solid team only to find I'm 0-3 after three weeks and spend the rest of the year playing catchup.

Two things that don't help me:

1. I've grown extremely accustomed to taking a vacation in September, so when most people are trolling the WW I'm sitting on a beach with a beer in hand. Doesn't bode well for WW moves.

2. I was burned very badly about 4 years ago by dropping one of my players for a "player of the week" type. He struggled the rest of the season and my dropped player became top 10. Therefore I give my players a little more time than I should to succeed and may miss out on hot players. Good example: I'm still waiting for Joe Horn to bust out even though I have a feeling he just won't be anything more than a #3 WR on my team even though he was drafted as a #2.

I think the key to being good on the waiver wire is keep a short, but strong bench so you have room to play with. If you draft a bunch of guys that might pan out...it handcuffs your ability to make waiver wire moves.

second for drafting....do not be afraid to overreach for a guy. Just because there is someone sitting there that is the consensus pick that you just have a bad feeling about, but there is someone else down the line that your really want...that you know wont get back to you on your next pick, take him. The real talent of drafting is having a good idea of when that player will comeback to you or when you need to pull the trigger now. Mock drafts are the only way to learn who the general public is hot on.

The race to decide who is king in my money league is this week. While he is 2-2 and I am 4-0, his team is superior to everyone's except probably mine. He's predicted a 6 point favorite, starters for this week:

His team:
*B. Johnson, Hasselbeck, Frye
*C. Taylor, *T. Barber, Westbrook, K. Jones, M. Jones-Drew
*S. Smith, *T. Glenn, H. Ward, L. Coles, D. Driver
*T. Gonzales
*Gould
*IND DEF

Mine:
*McNabb, Leftwich
*Tomlinson, *Jordan, R. Brown, W. McGahee, M. Morris
*Sa. Moss, *Roy Williams, C. Johnson, L. Evans, D. Mason
*Dal. Clark
*Wilkins
*SD DEF, DEN DEF


Should be a good game!

I've been in a fantasy league for the better part of the last 14 years. There's a guy in this league who just seems to beat me over and over. In fact, he beats me in just about every fantasy game we play, including a bunch of the free golf & baseball and NASCAR games on ESPN. I swear to you it's just luck - he'll beat me when I have CLEARLY better teams, both statistically and in matchups. It's frustrating as all hell, because I'm pretty good at this whole fantasy stuff.

The funny part of this story - he doesn't really care much for fantasy football; his real passion is fantasy baseball. I joined his fantasy baseball league a couple of years ago and I started beating him there. I beat him when I had clearly inferior teams and I smoked his butt when I had superior teams. He's been in this particular league for over a decade (maybe even 15 years?) and he's only one the title one time. I got in the league two years ago and I won it this year (with mad props to the Baseball Cafe and Omaha Red Sox who gave me tons of help).

So, since I joined that baseball league guess what? I've started turning things around against this guy. I'm beating him in most every league we're in together, and I trounced him in our week one game in our $$$ football league. It looks like I've broken the curse.

Your turn will come with your "nemesis." Just hang around the Cafe and you'll get the 411 to take over the winning side of your "battle."

yeah. you're right. half of us can't spell or form a coherent sentence. a lot of us confuse "then" with "than" and we use no punctuation.
In addition, our ideas are totally flawed, our advice is unsavory and there is no reason for winners and experts such as yourself to poke your much too long a nose in here only to gloat at our incompetence and worthlessness. I suggest you go find some paysite someplace so that you get fantastic, timely advice.
