I like my QB to WR combos. It's worked for me for most of the year with Holt/Bulger before LT got hot.
My mistakes? Dropping Brees earlier and then recently Betts.
Other than that, 1st in points, first place 12-2.
Yeah the most important part is drafting and keeping your team straight, but it also depends on when your teams get hot and when your opponents don't. Like one of the previous posters said, you can have a top 2 team and still not make the playoffs.
Lost the 2nd week when he got taken out early.
Lost when Maroney (on my opp. team) went off on the Bengals D (on my team) and got me a negative 5 and I lost by 4.
Lost when Reggie Bush got his first TD on the punt return.
Lost when Bulger was on bye and Fitz was hurt and Leinart did squat @ Oakland, lost by 8.
Lost by 8 when Bulger got shut out and Harrison & Fitz went into a funk at the same time.
And I lost this week when I finally benched Bulger for somebody else and he goes off for 3rd highest point total this year.
Oh and I was #1 in scoring easily. That's how you lose with LT2.
With Holt having a good game last night I am now right behind the #1 team in total points. So I'm sitting at #2 in total points, and since his team has some injury issues I just might pass him for #1 by the end of the season, and I missed the playoffs with LT.
All it takes is to have everyone blow up the week they play against you.

Once you experience this type of season, you'll understand.
Exactly. I am #2 in points right now in my 10 teamer, the first team blew up huge the first few weeks and built a huge points lead that I have been slowly chipping away at. I will most likely take over 1st in points by the end of the season...
And I'm out of the playoffs solely because no one in the league has had even close to the # of points scored against them that I have.
Like I said above, luckily for me, our league rewards the top 3 in points more than playoff participants. So, if I take over 1st in points I could still be the top money maker.
