Big Ben Worthlessburger...

Postby Navyseal » Sun Nov 09, 2008 8:08 pm

Man, this guy was a top-5 Fantasy stud QB last season, and now he's playing hurt again and still refuses to take care of the football and manage a lead. How the mighty have fallen, he went in the 3rd round in my main $$$ league this year... he's not even in the top-20 now among Fantasy QBs. Good thing he's not darkening my lineup each week.



*Big $$$ 12 tm, H2H Hyper-performance/Milestone keeper league:
QB-RB-RB-WR-WR-WR-TE-K-D/ST + several other options
*McNabb, Favre
*AP,*BJacobs, Slaton, Chester, Ahman Green
*RWhite,*VJax,*Santonio, DAvery, Housh, JMorgan
*Scaife, MLewis
*Elam
*TENN D/ST, JAX D/ST
(7-2, 1st in pts)

Man, that is a really funny thread title. Never heard Worthlessburger before. Priceless.

I usually call him Roflburger because i tend to do that when someone uses him as their first qb pick in my league's draft.

I dropped him this week in my league. I'm better off with Favre, Ryan and Pennington.

He might not be doing justice in fantasy football, but he is a hell of a QB, no question. I have not seen many QB's that are tougher than Big Ben.

He's planning on playing again this week and there is little chance he's anywhere near 85% let alone 100%... yeah, he's one tough SOB but that doesn't get you fantasy points. I am planning on starting Santonio Holmes on the oft chance that he snags a long score, but I am tempted to start VJax instead bc at least he has a QB that is delivering the pigskin on a regular basis downfield...

I had Roth rated around #6 based off of last year's performance and am quite glad I never drafted him. That's not to say he won't fall in drafts next year and bounce back, but I won't target him. If he falls to me, I'll be sure to get a good back-up

Thank God the league I drafted him in was one of two leagues that I drafted Rivers as a backup. The other I drafted Hasselbeck :-o

Yeah me too. I mean, they're almost as retarded as people who pick Brady as their starter and his three points this season. :-o
