I'm 3-2 in my 14 team money league and feel like I have some promise as the weeks go on. Many of my players have been underachieving, and I think that they will be turning things around, at least somewhat. We start 1 QB, 2 WR, 1 Flex, 2 RB, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 IDP, 1 Defense.

QB - JTO, Hasselbeck(will improve)
WR - AJohnson, Royal, Holt(will improve), Driver
RB - Addai(Indi will get on track), Forte, JStewart(still think he'll start soon), LWhite, Torain, Rice
TE - Daniels
K - Bironas
IDP - DRyans
Def - Pitt, Balt

As of right now, I'm 5th, and have scored the 4th most points.

i'm a degenerate with 5 leagues...

League 1: 4-1 and feeling great. would be extremely surpised to miss the playoffs. anything less than a title will be a disapointment (Warner, AD, T.Jones, Wayne, Calvin, Cothc (Colston), Witten)

League 2: 4-1 but overachieveing...should be able to sneak into playoffs (Warner, Jacobs, Stewart, CJ4.24, Wayne, Holt)

League 3: 3-2 (also uses Victory Points). should fight for playoff spot

League 4: 4-1 (32 team league)

League 5: 1-4 but current 4th seed is only 3-2, and with a roster of Warner, LT, S-Jax, CJ4.24, Holmes, Cotch i'm not giving up yet (keeper league)

My team is 3-2 but I'm not worried because it's loaded. I just happened to play the wrong guys at a couple positions this week or else I'd be 4-1

QB - Cutler, Schaub
RB - Barber, Brown, Jacobs, Stewart, C. Johnson
WR - Marshall, Andre, Cotchery, Crayton
TE - Clark, Fasano
K - Longwell
Def - Chi, Philly

My team is 2-3, and has under-scored, due to issues with consistency and injuries.

I have positioned myself to be a monster in the second half, though. I have Colston returning, and have Curtis as a situational start. Ronnie Brown and Frank Gore with great matchups down the stretch... Roddy White is coming in strong. If Calvin Johnson gets it together, I should have a heck if a second half.

My main team is 2-3 and third in the league in scoring. I'm disappointed because I feel like I've got a lot of talent:
QB: Delhomme, Schaub, Edwars
RB: Gore, Portis, Hightower, Fargas
WR: Boldin, Edwards, Evans, Harrison, M. Jones
TE: Fasano

But I've had my share of bad breaks. I lost this week by 0.46 points after I started Edwards over Delhomme and he went down on the first drive. I picked up Edwards after I got very frustrated by the tandem of Schaub and Delhomme in weeks 2 and 3. I don't mind the 3-headed monster at QB, but it seems silly, and I could package one of them in a trade to improve my WR or TE.

I felt good at WR after the auction- Boldin, Edwards and Burleson were going to be the big three. Burleson's injury put me in a mess, and I've added Harrison and Evans since then. Boldin's injury was another blow to my WR corp, but he'll be back and by week 8 byes will no longer be an issue and I can hopefully start 3 guys I'm confident in. Edwards and Harrison have disappointed, by I feel like I need to ride them out rahter than selling low.

At RB, I've got the guys who are currently ranked 3 and 4 in my league. My plan from the start was to use Gore and Portis (who were my keepers) every week excepting their bye, and I see no reason to change that plan at this point. An injury would really hurt. I like Hightower's production from my bench, but I'm not ready to start him. I made a big sacrifice in trading Stewart to improve my WR situation after Burleson was lost.

I picked up Fasano for the San Diego matchup. Previously I'd been using Scheffler. Good timing, I guess. Althought I would've won last week had I used Scheff.

So I'm going to hang in there, play thw waiver wire for the best D each week and hope my RBs stay healthy and Braylon comes around.

I'm 0 - 5.

In a 16 team money league I've scored the third highest total amount of points. 4 out of 5 weeks I played the team with the highest points scored that week. Week 1 and week 5 my team scored the second highest points. Every opponent has a bunch of players who just go off and I get destroyed. It's getting to be so ridiculous it's almost funny.


1 Loss 113.42 - 124.42 <-- Donovan Mcnabb, Marion Barber, Matt Forte
2 Loss 109.00 - 138.32 <-- Julius Jones, Brian Westbrook, Larry Fitzgerald
3 Loss 76.88 - 145.18 <-- Joseph Addai, Michael Turner, Ronnie Brown goes off with 4 rushing tds and a passing td. I = destroyed.
4 Loss 104.54 - 107.58 <-- Opponent did not score the highest amount of points this week. I lost on game winning monday night field goal. Oh and he had Brett Favre with 6 TDs
5 Loss 121.64 - 152.00 <-- Roddy White, Kurt Warner, Flex slot - Deangelo Williams put up 30+ points on me WTF?????

My team is 3 - 2 and the only reason I won this past week was because my league counts return TD's. Thank You Reggie Bush and De. Jackson! My starting WR's are like a baseball team with timely hitting. Ward, De. Jackson and Berrian are not highly rated but they come through for me in some way. I just need FWP to get healthy and ADP to keep doing what he is doing. By the way Drew Brees is the frigin man!

I'm 1-4 in a 12 team Cafe Dynasty League, and my team is a disaster with little hope of recovering.

I'm 1-4 in the 12 team Yahoo Plus league which I commish, but my team is STACKED at RB and QB. My WRs are very bad, but if Braylon Edwards turns it around and I can get a couple W's the next couple weeks, I think I can make a late run.

I'm 5-0 in a 10 team Yahoo league and am favored by like 30 this week (playing an 0-5 team). I think my team is the best or second best in this league, and I'm minimally making a playoff run in that league.

I'm 3-2 in a 10 team rtsports.com league, and my team is STACKED. I could easily be 5-0. I won that league last year with a good team and with all luck going my way, so I don't feel bad if things go the other way this year, but I'm hoping for a playoff run here, too.

I'm 3-2 in a 12 team yahoo league with odd rules. My team has its strong and weak points, and I'm hoping for a playoff run here.

I'm 3-2 in a 10 team yahoo league which in which I wound up autodrafting. Yahoo did me proud with my starters, but I have like zero depth. I can see this one going either way, and will need some luck to make the playoffs.

Incidentally, I'm also currently leading the 20+ team confidence pool pick 'em league I'm in. But in fairness, I'm just copying my picks from footballguys.com each week :)

I guess I'm 16-14 overall, so despite all the time I've spent this year watching, listening to, and reading about football, I'm barely over .500. I guess I shouldn't give up my day job :)
