Yup. Hopefully things even out statistically by the end of the season. I am going to need a winning streak here real soon.

Don't "give up" because you make your league non-competitive and boring, and if your commish is decent, you get your butt kicked out after the season. I respect the owners in my leagues who fight the good fight, even though they're eliminated MUCH MORE than those who coast on the "I got lucky with some breakout players or waiver priority" roll.

My team is solid but I ran into the perfect storm of a team on Sunday: (10 teamer)

His team consisted of:
Flacco
Mc Fadden & Fred Jackson
Welker & Calvin



thats wild....a guy i played in one of my leagues had almost the exact same roster aside from having andre instead of calvin. i also would have beaten anyone else in the league :-b

hard to win when you play a team with welker each week or some qb that gets 5 td and alot of d and kicker points, thats happening to me so far.

Are you playing with 9 Somali Pirates without web access or something? How the hell did you get Turner, Mendy, AJ, VJ and Jennings all on the same team? (not to mention two top 10 TEs and one of the top 3 defenses)...

Seriously - how bad was the draft of the rest of the league? AJ/VJ/Mendy and Jennings are all 2nd rounders (maybe early third at worst - and AJ has gone in the first in many leagues I have seen this year) and you got all 4 of them?

It's a 10 team (3 man keeper) league. (my main league)
I traded away ADP before keepers had to be announced for his 3rd round pick. (if you keep a guy, its counts as a round.. 3 keepers = first 3 rounds of draft)

I kept AJ / Jennings/Mendy. Grabbed VJaX with that pick.. Bought low on Turner (Wayne) I am still 1-2 in this league.. :~(

I also just traded Felix / Henderson for SJAX.. My current RBS are : Mendy / Turner / SJAX / Ingram

You know, I think you underestimate Somali Pirates.

Do so at your own peril.

WRs - VJax, S Johnson, M Williams, M Thomas
TEs - Gronkowski, Davis
D/ST - CHI
K - Cundiff


Wow, on paper thats a championship team.


In reality, that's an 0-4 team as of tonight. :~(
