Anybody who thought they had a great team sitting at 0-5?

Postby ampant » Mon Oct 10, 2011 11:59 am

On paper, this team looks awesome. In reality, I am getting kicked in the nutz almost every week. Really it's not only bad luck. Out of five weeks, this team has only had two good performances, with three weeks of sub-100 scoring.

Really demoralizing.

QBs - Roethlisberger, Hasselbeck
RBs - Peterson, Mendenhall, F Jones, Wells, Starks, Redman
WRs - VJax, S Johnson, M Williams, M Thomas
TEs - Gronkowski, Hernandez
D/ST - CHI
K - Lindell

Anybody else out there with a winless team that they thought would be great on draft day?

Tell me about it; however, looks like I'll be 1-4 barring a miracle :,-(

Turned around my team quite a bit, acquired Daniels, got Fitz for my backup QB spot & have Washington at WR & Hanson at kicker but I've had 620 points scored against me!!!

Not nearly as bad as 0-5 but my team is 2-3 and I feel your pain. Still, it is sad watching my team which I thought would be a consistent producer, manage to only consistently disappoint me.
It's been a rather interesting year for fantasy football to say the least.

QB: Schaub, Bradford
RB: Charles, Best, Mendenhall, Starks, Sproles, Tate
WR: Fitzgerald, VJax, Julio Jones, Harvin, Amendola
TE: Finley
D: Lions
K: Hanson
