What moves have you made this year your kicking yourself for

My roster was all full (Corey Bradford and Mark Clayton were my two sleeper WRs, and I had my eye on Colston, but stuck with the other two cause they both had NFL experience - Clayton finally had a real QB, and Bradford earned the #2 WR slot in the new Martz offense)

A co-worker in my league came to me asking for help. I said "pick up Marques Colston"

he said "who is that?"

"Donte Stallworth's replacement"

Dude. . . what an idiot I am.

Drafting Rod Smith in all 3 of my Leagues thinking he'd be a solid WR3.

Dropping Edwards instead of Branch or Matt Jones.

Picking up Alex Smith instead Grossman, Pennington, or Carr.

Drafting Culpepper as a #1.

Drafting DD in a couple of leagues is killing me. Almost all my drafts were way before he went on IR so it probably was the right move at the time.

Drafting R.Moss in a couple of leagues is hurting. I really thought that he'd be back to his old self since he's healthy.

That's all I can think of now. I can't think of any WW blunders off the top of my head. I started a new job a few months ago so I'm not able to scour the WW as much as I'd like to but can't complain because the job is going great. ;-D

Dropping Terry Glen for Antonio Bryant all the while holding onto Derrick Mason (McNair Kool-Aid).
CheeseWhiz is a great substitute for plazma.

Regret dropping Colston before the season started. But hell, I got Winslow and there is noway I would start Colston over my stud WRs. I guess it worked out, but he would of been some sweet trade bait.

I drafted as backup running backs:

Ron Dayne (BEFORE his "turf toe" fiasco in Denver)
Greg Jones
Marion Barber III

Sooo...yeah.

Barber was great last week (Rudi's bye), so let's see how he does on Willie's. I also picked up off waivers since the beginning of the year - Correll Buckhalter, Wali Lundy and Jerome Harrison.

Other than that, I've felt great. Missed Jennings by a couple minutes, but I already had Holt, Roy Williams, Chris Chambers, Marques Colston, Jerricho Cotchery, Joey Galloway and Drew Bennett.
