He threw a TD pass to Brees, that doesn't count in your league?

Yes, the passing TD counts, but if you are drafting RB's based on how many TD's they throw, you are misguided.

Here is an example of how expectations taint our viewpoint.

RB "A" - 5 games, 90 attempts, 5.1 average, 457 yards and 2 TD

RB "B" - 5 games, 72 attempts, 5.5 average, 397 yards, and 1 TD

The first back is considered disappointing and the second is having a surprising year. Why? Expectations.

"A" is Tomlinson. "B" is Anthony Thomas.

I am not crying in my post-draft beer, I - and many others - still expected more from him. Is he a great back? Yes. Is he having a great fantasy year? No. I know that production will increase because of his talent, but I was simply making an observation that I would like him to score some more TD's - starting this week.

Is there a single FF player out there that doesn't wish for the same from his players?

Ahahaha... LT is going to cheat to win WWE style... Brees hands the ball off to LT... he flips the ball to the defensive back on the Browns who runs the ball in for a touchdown... while Brees is watching the play, LT sandwiches him over the head with a steel chair, then tears off his Charger's jersey to reveal a Browns Jersey underneath... meanwhile Jim Ross screams, "My Gawd, My Gawd! The Humanity... Ladanian Tomlinson is a sadist! That sick sumbitch!"

If only the WWE would get that interesting again......... :-)

You want the WWE to be interesting again? I got three words for you: Fantasy Pro Wrestling.

In my league you draft we draft a total of nine wrestlers and start one heavyweight, one tag team, one female, one guy over 40, one lucadore, and one person named McMahon. :-b
