What lesson did you learn last season?

Postby J.C.Fighter » Mon Jul 07, 2008 6:31 pm

I learned that
1. RB's are becoming more and more of crapshoot
2. TE's are almost useless
3. Good IDP's that nobody knows about come up every year..
4. Having a good QB is a necessity...
5. if you have have LT on your team , you'll most likely be a competitive team

these are just off the top of my head

Good question, because I'm sure we have all learned some the hard way lol...


Last year the main lesson I learned was to be patient on some higher caliber players in slumps...Its always hard to gauge if a player will continue to do terrible or if he will pick it back up, but I traded Gore and he ended up having some great games during the fantasy playoffs...Other then that Carson Palmer pretty much ruined my playoff run by deciding to play his worst games ever to finish the season, I had total team effort except from the QB position so I probably value it a tad higher then previous years.

I learned that it doesn't matter how much you dominate in the regular season. All it takes is one bad postseason outing and you're through. I had what had to be the greatest team I have ever assembled, only to lose in the first round of the playoffs. My team:

QB-Tom Brady
RB-Marion Barber III
RB-Edgerrin James
WR-Randy Moss
WR-Larry Fitzgerald
FLX-Ryan Grant
TE-Jason Witten
PK-Matt Stover
DST-Minnesota Vikings

One and friggin' done after going 13-1 in the regular season. :-B

Hmm, lessons I learned...

Playing fantasy football in a league with Kilroy and Metroid is probably the funniest experience imaginable...








...but victory is bittersweet as you feel you are competing against special olympians!!! :-B

Nice Rob....mom and sis(who happen to be the same person)always said I was special. %-6 :-D

Seriously though I learned that I'm and neither good or lucky at fantasy football, and that I should probably stick to what I'm good at...drinking heavily and being extremely handsome. :-B

Lee Evans is not Steve Smith, even if the Bills say during the pre-season they plan to try and use him that way.
