Who that drafted or owned LT in 2006, didn't make playoffs??

Postby BlueSox » Sun Dec 17, 2006 10:48 pm

I can't imagine how that could have happened in any of my 8 leagues?????

If you had and started LT in any week, you probably won at least 10 games, and how could you NOT with half a brain????

Anyway, this once again goes to prove that the DRAFT and DRAFT POSITION is the one and only MOST important SUCCESS factor to WINNING in FF......

And, also demands that all leagues have a small roster and a large and open FA area for the rest of us to try to catch up by our hard work, research and long hours.......

Who disagrees with this and why???

I disagree with you completely. Having a top pick his a big advantage, yes, I agree. But the biggest thing is having luck on your side. Even with the best draft and 1st pick overall in your draft, doesn't guarantee your playoff or Fantasy Football Super Bowl Victory. Fantasy Football is a game of luck and if you don't have that, you won't win. You can have the best team ever, but the one week you play your opponent, he can have the greatest week ever. Brees throwing for 5 TDs with 350 yards. Chad Johnson having 236 recieving yards with 3 TDs. Javon Walker having a total of 44 fantasy points. It's all luck.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

That is one brutal team. I wish the LT owner in my league drafted like that.

Can pretty much thank LT for winning me 10 straight games. I can't believe how far apart LT is from the normal "great" running back. He really is in a class by himself. One of those one in a million type players.

Statistically, I think he would be more than one in a Million, I'm thinking 1 out of 105 Billion (the number of people on earth since the dawn of time, rough estimate of course.) Because he is the best RB ever, IMO.

I kept the LT owner in my devision out of the playoffs in my 12 team league.

his team finished 7-7 and I beat him twice this season.

Vick/Grossman
LdT
Julius Jones/Henry/Jacobs
Berrian
Keyshawn
Crumpler
Gould
Chargers/Bengals

My team

McNabb(IR)/ Garcia/Pennington
Holt
A Johnson/Ward
Alexander
Marion Barber/T Bell/K Jones
Heap
Wilkins/Knaeding
Eagles/Vikings

I only finished 8-6 because of all the injuries. Looks like I should make the Championship unless Wayne scores 30pts tonight.

I disagree with this. If you are good at Fantasy Football then you will have the Odds in your favor and will genearlly make the playoffs. Sure you can have bad luck a couple of games or a bad injury. But if you draft depth and play matchups you should be good to go. To many people blame luck for their misfortune but it can usual go back to drafting injury prone players, not drafting depth, playing a guy in a bad matchup, etc.

Really? I drafted smack dab in the middle of a 12 team league at #7 and am playing for the championship in my league. (Just moved into finals after win this week). Traditionally, the middle of the draft is the worst spot to be.

QB: Brees
WR: Harrison, S. Moss
RB: Jackson, Lewis
TE: De. Clark
WR/RB: Faulk
K: Stover
Bench: Young, Caldwell, Morris, Heap

D: Z. Thomas, S. Phillips
DB: A. Wilson
DL: Bulluck
Bench: Brooking, Abraham
