OK, I am now 0-2. I have lost both games by a COMBINED 0.5 pts. %-6

Are you serious? Unbelievable... :~(

FF is cruel. Draft as good as you want but to win it takes lucky scheduling and decent scoring week after week.

In my leagues if I don't score at least 100 (standard yahoo) I will certainly lose. 85-90 is a coin flip. Yet I see others win all the time by scoring 70. So Frustrating.

Keep your head up. Your Luck will turn.

You never know how things will turn out. I was down to my buddy by 7 points going into the game tonight and I had Dallas Clark while he had Reggie Wayne. I thought it was game over, but the fantasy gods smiled upon me tonight...

I was down 40 points (my Forte and Romo start, his Rivers and CJ4.24) and I made an awesome comeback thanks to Ronnie Brown... only lost by 3 points! YAYAYA 0-2. Would have beaten all but 2 teams this week, but hey, that's how the cookie crumbles, and buries you under its wreckage.

I lost my first three FFB games in a money league one year and still ending up winning the league. It's early yet and you can always have an awesome turnaround. ;-D

Week 1.

Went into Sunday night down .2 . He had Gates I had Miller on MNF.

Wake up Monday morning and I'm down 3 pts. I lose by .9.

Would have won if not for a ghost stat correction. Played CJ in week 2.

Ive gone undefeated in my money league the last two years. First round bye in the playoffs, then lost the next two games both years to finish out of the money. First place is 1000, second 750 third is 500. If i won one out of the two games either year i would have won 500 for third place. Sometimes it just sucks.

Last year i had the game wrapped up. Playing against Deangelo. Game was over. I remember saying to my girl the only way i can lose is if Deangelo breaks off a 70 yard TD. It was third down and the game was already over. Stop them on third they punt, game over. He runs to the endzone on the next play, i lose. DAMMIT!

Well here's a gem for you. Right now, with 29 points through the first half of the early games, I'd be winning against everybody in my league except for 1 guy. Of course, it's the guy I'm playing. He has 74 points.

What a week to run into Steve Smith (NYG), MJD, McGahee, and Donald Driver. 0-3 here I come. :*)
