That's pretty decent of a draft and for once... believable.

That is a pretty good team but you might be alright. Here is an update I get weekly.

Chicago (Packers vs. Bears): 24 degrees, 31 mph winds, 80 percent
chance of snow. Sounds like it will be even uglier than the weather
Cleveland and Buffalo played in last week. Avoid all receivers,
quarterbacks and kickers. Ryan Grant should get a big workload and
could be pretty good. Adrian Peterson should get a lot of touches as
well.

Buffalo (Giants vs. Bills): 47 degrees, 90 percent chance of rain,
25 mph winds. Passing the ball will be impossible in this game.
Brandon Jacobs, however, could be very good against a soft Bills run
defense. Marshawn Lynch also should get plenty of carries.

Cincinnati (Browns vs. Bengals): another lousy-weather situation. 44
degree high, 24 mph winds, 30 percent chance of rain. Could be very
tough on the passing games for both teams. Braylon Edwards, however,
made a couple of really nice catches in the snow last week; it's
tough to sit a player of his caliber down. Jamal Lewis should get a
monster workload and have a big day.

Foxboro (Dolphins at Patriots): 47 degrees, 10 percent chance of
rain. Sounds like it might not be that bad.


SJax already did alright but not awesome. Reed put up solid #'s (10). Carson and Housh might have a tough day ahead of them with the weather conditions. Jacobs should do alright but when you can't pass running is much easier to defend. Moss should do well with no weather issues in NE. Jennings will have it tough in Chi town, weather is awful. Vernon is up against TB who doesn't let teams pile up yards. And the Jags against the Raiders with Jamarcus expected to play more than normal could bode well for him but the Raiders have played tough lately so who knows.

I don't think you are in as bad a position as you think.

Depending on your team, you may have won.

Palmer had a crap day
SJax did okay, but was the lowest scoring RB on my team by a decent amount
Jacobs did well before leaving with the injury
Moss was mortal with the 50 yards and 2 TDs
Whosyourmomma didn't do too well
Jennings was horrible
Davis wasn't awesome
Reed did okay for a kicker
Jags did okay

lol are you kidding? yes, palmer and jennings had bad days, but theres nothing mortal about 50 yards and 2 td's. thats 17 pts for moss. housh caught a td. 8 pts. brandon jacobs was a stud with 140+ and 2 tds. thats 26 pts. Jags D did fantastic, 16 pts. reed scored a nice total of 11, and davis caught a td for 7 pts.

that gives him a total of 109 pts. im sitting at 83 with only Tony Scheffler to play. lol so i need 26 to tie (and i have the tiebreaker). so 26 to win. id need 140+ with 2 TD's from scheffler. can it happen? sure. will it happen? highly doubt it.

technically i couldve won if i started hanson over gostkowski, reggie brown over anthony gonzalez, and titans d over cowboys d, but hindsight is 20/20. 2nd place wins 72 bucks. not too bad.
