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.
I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

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.
