0-2 Support Group...

Postby bazzy_51 » Mon Sep 21, 2009 1:32 pm

So I started off this season fairly confident in a couple of my higher importance money leagues. BUT after week 2 is almost in the books I'm sitting at the computer starring at the screen blankly asking WTF?? :-o So decided to start this thread in hopes of banding together and giving out support morally rather then the D/T/K/W thread. Just more so a thread to relieve some pressure, lol, so I'll start it off:

0-2 in a 14 team h2h keeper 1 QB, 2 WR, 2 RB, 1 TE, 1 W/T, 1 W/R. Outscored by ONE point week 1 and depending on Addai's performance tonight could be as much as 45 :~( Team:

QB-Romo, Sanchez
WR- TO, Lee Evans, Devery Henderson, Torry Holt, Michael Clayton, Pierre Garcon
RB- MJD, Addai, Shonn Greene, Chester Taylor, Fred Taylor
TE- Jason Witten
K-Kris Brown
DEF-NEP
D- John Beason, Eric Barton
DB- Leodis McKelvin, Tramon Williams
LB- James Laurinaitis, Larry Foote

Then also looking at 0-2 is my big money ESPN league 16 team h2h, 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1TE. Just getting pounded...

QB-Warner, Buldger
RB- Portis, MB3, Bradshaw, Ricky Williams
WR- TJ Housh, TO, Derrick Mason, Donnie Avery, Louis Murphy
TE- Zach Miller, Jermichael Finely
K-Neil Rackers
LB- Lance Briggs
DL-Richard Seymour
DB-Ed Reed
DP- Lofa Tatupu, Josh Wilson

What about yall? Any horror stories out there about an 0-2 hole and not knowing why? Post it up!

My teams have gotten off to a slow start by injuries to my team and freak superweeks by opposing teams' players. It's nothing to get too worked up about from my perspective as this simply can't continue to happen all year long...

Can it? :-o

0-2 doesn't matter. Once the injury bug hits, teams who have good depth will go on hot streaks.

But of course, it's nice to be 2-0 and also have depth.

This isn't the NFL where I can plug someone else in. Depth means nothing mid-game, only for looking toward next week.

Ran into Adrian Peterson in Week 1.

Ran into Frank Gore week 2.


Not much you can do when stuff like that happens.

I simply meant during bye weeks, some people are not playing, and a lot more players get injured. If you have a solid bench, you can easily go 8-0, 7-1, or 6-2 during that stretch.

Nice to feel like others are sharing the pain. Good idea. Ran into Peterson week 1 and Chris Johnson week 2.

12 team, 3 keeper league:
Players: Usual Starter (backup)

QB: Schaub (Palmer)
WR1: Andre Johnson
WR2: Ochocinco (Roy Williams)
RB1: Steven Jackson (Jamal Lewis)
RB2: Slaton (Hightower)
R/W: Ray Rice (D.Brown)
TE: Witten (Shiancoe)
K: Crosby
DEF: Minnesota
Misc. Bench: M.Bush, S.Greene, C.Brown

How does this team not dominate? I could field a competitive team with my backups.

I am winless after having lost by a combined 0.5 pts in 2 weeks. That is about as cruel as it gets. Granted, my team isn't exactly lighting it up, but I still think I'd rather lose by 20. Those small margins you just sit there and go, "if <player> would have been given just one more carry!"

First week ran into the Eagles defense/ST, who were the difference in the matchup. What made it hurt worse is that i had Desean Jackson who did nothing as a receiver, but ran back a TD for his defense.

Second week my Frank Gore performance more than offset his Andre Johnson, but in a fit of madness I benched Phillip Rivers for Matt Hasselbeck. Another narrow loss and I now hate myself.
