Hearst has surgery, Barlow is the man

For those of you with Barlow stashed on your bench, your playoff prayers may have been answered (if you have a crappy #2 RB like me)...

I wish he would've just outright won the job along time ago. Oh well. At least he won't be splitting carries this week.

I hope Barlow does really good and maybe they will let him start from now on.

We've all heard of the Madden curse, well this is a case of a reverse curse. Call it a a moochie, if you will. When I trade my RBs they have good fortune come there way. I first trade Duckett because of Dunn, and then Barlow because he couldn't wrench the job away from Hearst. Now they are both starters. If I had seen this curse earlier, I could've gotten and traded my opponents stud's back-ups and watch the injuries happen. If you see Priest, Duece, Ahman, etc. get hurt next year, you'll know I've fallen to the dark side.

Son of a...
Barlow was available in my league, but now transactions are locked for the playoffs. He would've been a great start vs. the Cardinals, but I have a bye anyhow, and am just glad nobody else grabbed him.

knee surgery? out at least one week? I'm thinking out for the season. Barlow is money for the next 4 games or 3 games fantasy-wise. It's going to be tough to decide between Marshall and Barlow for a keeper league. I don't think Hearst will be part of their plans next year but he is darn good for 33 years old, I'll say that. He hasn't taken a beating like some others at his age. Priest is another example.

Yeah, I hope Barlow tears up the Cards so maybe he could get a starting job next year.

Is Hearst now drop bait? They say he could play next week, but is that really an attainable goal with a scoped knee???

Of course, I haven't started Henry since he did whatever they are calling it to his leg and look what he's done.

I am starting Henry until I hear that he isn't playing. He has been playing "well." I wish his leg would have been like this all year...jk
