Do you root against your team for fantasy?

Postby sportsaddict » Sun Sep 09, 2007 10:08 am

Be honest, does anyone root against your favorite team if it means good things for your fantasy team?

I used to a little bit. If the Rams were playing the Chargers and I had LT, I wouldn't be so upset if he scored a touchdown or two. But the past few years I've made a vow to never root against the Rams for fantasy, even in the slightest bit.

Never. I guess if I have a player and he does good against the Bears, it hurts a bit less if I win that week because of it, but I'm still pissed off if the Bears lose.

Nope. Honestly, I don't root for or against anyone based on fantasy unless it's a game which I wouldn't otherwise care about. When I'm watching football, I'm watching a football game, not watching a fantasy football game...

I like it when im in a PPR league and my guy catches 10 2 yard passes against my team! ;-D

had a game 2 years ago where steve smith went off for a dozen or so cathes and 180 yards...but no scores against the bears
Oh, people can come up with statistics to prove anything, Kent. Fourty percent of people know that.

Very very rarely. The only time it happens is if I know my winning fantasy (and normally making money) hinges on one player doing well and that player is playing SF. I've found myself hoping that the player I need does well but at the same time hoping SF wins. Of course in recent years, SF getting a win in and of itself was a task, so I seemed to find myself rooting for my FF player by halftime because SF had already taken themselves out of the game.

I'd rather have a goose egg than root against my team.

And the voice of reason speaks loud and clear. :-b

Not to say I haven't been tempted before, but yeah, never unless the Cowboys are up by more than 14 in the 4th and I need somebody to get some garbage points.

I'll always take a COwboys win over a fantasy win. But if the Cowboys can still win while my fantasy player has a good day, so much the better!
