Did you ever actually start Kitna over the other 2?

I was playing in the championship against the guy who had Westy. Westy had a clear lane to the endzone and while my opponent was already dancing a jig, well lets just say that guy may never play fantasy football again!

I won by 1 point. I bought a new ipod with my winnings.

hehe


Yeah, I lost that week by exactly one point, for the exact same reason. I learned that fantasy football exists to break my heart.

And as westbrooks 52 teammates and his coached jumped in excitement for being smart, the hope of countless championships were dashed. i dont think ive ever seen anything like that. Few guys in the league are smart enough or as selfless as westbrook to do somethin like that

1. FFL is won by pure luck

2. See Rule #1.

12 Owners in a league one of whom is female (the wife of the commish) and guys who wins the whole thing? You guessed it! I ended the season with the most points by 50 yet had to win my last 2 game to finish 7-6 and make the playoffs. Then, OK, I am in no harm done, my opponent has the second highest weekly point total of 142 (I scored 145 in week 2) when he never broke 120 in the regular season and I head home. At least the chick beat him the next week.

Don't be mad if the player you want gets snatched right in front of you. Sometimes that can work to your advantage. Example... I wanted Donald Driver last year and he got snatched up right before me. I "settled" for Randy Moss instead. ;-D

Defenses and kickers are crap shoots. It's best to try to find K's and DEF's that are doing well around week 6 and pick them up and use them the rest of the way. Don't spend a high pick on them ever.

Don't start McNabb over Tony Romo no matter what the matchups look like. :-b


This just happened to me with Engram in a draft this past Sat. I remembered reading this post and had to find it-

1) Never over-analyze in your rankings.
2) Never let personal bias come in the way of making the right pick.

Personal bias last season left me with the worst team I've ever drafted because I nitpicked every player on the board and settled for safer bets and bad players I was high on. Never again.
