Same here, and nobody puts in more time than me. I just lost cause the Colts are losing on purpose to get Luck.


Same as well. I pay attention to what defenses are susceptible to and gauge match-ups on more than just numbers and names. But I keep getting beat down by the people plugging in someone just because they have a higher projection. Karma is coming to collect on me after running the table in my league for the past 5 years. :*)

Always tough to second guess yourself, only to see the road less traveled reap reward. I picked up Murray and dropped him for Maurice Morris Saturday night (I know). Sometimes you just have to go with your gut. The majority seemed to be that Cam Newton/Steve Smith were flashes in the pan after week 1, and I was told that I should trade Cam for Matt Ryan or Ryan Fitzpatrick on consecutive weeks (with sound logical rationale). As you can see, things change. This is why they play the game. Better luck with future decisions. :-)

Guess you missed my analysis....

I also watched murray last week and he looked really good, while Choice fumbled the ball away. so I am predicting he will get the lion's share of the carries. thanks for the help with mine.


and i missed getting him last week by 1 WW priority level... :~( (and to the team leading me and my division by 1 game :-[ )

Yeah, that stinks. If it helps, and it won't, I picked him up and watched him light up my bench while Torain gave me a Shanurism.
Now the question is does Murray rip apart the Dream team next Sunday?

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