I am definitely guilty of this FCD!!! I feel pissed off when I lose and I am always thinking of ways to make my team better. Those are the two worst for me!

1.Everytime an unproven player has a good day you immediately refer to him as a sleeper
2. You always calculate in your head how many points a player got in one week when you see his statline for the game on espn
3. Youve had dreams over who to start before on saturday nights
4. Everytime a player scores a TD and you realize he wasn't drafted, you immediately think about if you should pick them up
5. Your most used term for the week is "sleeper"
6. You've rooted for a K in an actual game
7. You feel the need to attempt at least one trade a week in your league
8. You get on stattracker every sunday morning and rotate games on stat tracker for stat updates instead of watching games
9. When your team loses you have bad weeks afterward and feel depressed
10. You stare at your rosters for hours each day looking at how you can get better or how you will do this week

I dont know maybe its just me, but at least i can admit it ;-D



I'm definitely guilty of 10 without question. I do it for fantasy baseball as well. I've been guilty of two on occassion except that I do it for either NFL.com or Yahoo! Six I've done many times. As for seven, I only deal when in need. It is harder to trade in fantasy football (thankfully I was able to deal Brian Griese to get Marty Booker due to the loss of Andre Johnson. Now if only I can get some healthy and available RB for week four).

LOL if you're not guilty of some of those, you HAVE to suck at FF.

Although I just can't ever bring myself to use the term "sleeper." I figure that anything I come up with is already public knowledge to someone, somewhere.

Classic!

Thanks for posting that. Sadly, I can relate to most of those symptoms. :~(

It's 2:37 Saturday morning here, I'm up getting starting pitching I desperately need for two H2H matchups on Sunday and then ended up 3/4 of the page down in Football leftovers.
I think that says all I need to know about my FCD. :-b

Guilty of these enboldened actions.

2. I can calculate the points pretty dang fast by now; if it's a player I own in any league I immediately think of how many points he did or could have accumulated for me.

6. The K scores points just like the rest of the team does :p

8. I get on nfl.com and check the boxscores/gamecenters of the games in which my players are participating in, because some leagues don't have free up to the minute scores. I check between the games on FOX and CBS, unless my Boys are playing. I check the computer at the end of each quarter.

9. Depending on the buy-in or prestige(Cafe leagues) I feel the effects of crucial wins/losses.

Here's one that should be added:

11. You bring up FF so much with coworkers/friends that play, that you can tell they are tired of it :p

Pretty much true. Don't you hate it when your "sleepers" constantly creep into earlier rounds of mock drafts as the summer progresses?
