Who else drafted a solid team on paper, only to see it fold like paper?
Ugh! This is easily my worst year of fantasy football. I'm in two money leagues and both my teams are in last place. My teams ALWAYS make the playoffs so I'm not used to looking up in the standings.
Team 1 is injury-prone. Shaun, Fitz and now Lamont Jordan are all hurt. Coles is dinged up. The Chargers D, who looked to be a solid Def starter all year, are losing some key players too. I also drafted Witten & Miller as TEs and both are struggling. I just got beat 151-49.
Team 2 was poor drafting and poor managment. I drafted Kurt Warner, C-Pep, C Chambers, R Smith, D Mason and J Lewis. And I keep sitting Reggie Brown when he blows up and starting Reggie Williams when he implodes. Ironic thing is this team went 2-0 when Steve Smith was hurt. I just lost to the last place team by 4 points to become the last place team.
But I don't want to leave this thread sounding all "Woe is me." No way. I am not a quitter. Never have been. And I would like all those reading this thread and sitting in last place to feel the same. Here is my plan:
Team 1: I still have Bulger and this is a very QB friendly league. The Rams have a passing-friendly schedule and are throwing the ball more. Shaun will be back soon and without Hass, the 'Hawks will pound away at some soft run defenses. Fitz will heal and get single coverage becuase teams will double Boldin. And (I love this!), Team 1 is in a 10 team league where 8 teams make the playoffs!
Team 2: I just traded F Taylor for Delhomme. So my QB troubles are solved. T Bell & R Johnson have been solid and have no more bye weeks. I have their respective handcuffs too. I will trust Reggie Brown to be my #2 WR from here on out. Denver's D is for real. And I will find some sucker in my league to take Chambers & Mason for a serviceable #3 WR (Javon Walker owner I am looking at you!).
So don't quit! Hang in there! Two years ago, the guy who won started 0-6! Last year the winner started 2-5 (just like me). It can be done. Don't quit. Make some moves. Hang in there and most of all -- have fun!
See you in the playoffs!!
