At the time Elam was my best player. He wasearning 14 points a week straight. Horn and EDGE were hurt so they were putting up 0.40 points.

The guy offered me the trade which I took. I nursed the two back to health and they played a central role in helping me win my game!

I dunno how you convinced a guy that the #1 fantasy player was gonna miss significant time early in the season, but thats luck for you sometimes. Most of my leagues, I can't get trades off to save my ass.


Yes, everyone in the league thought I was an idiot. But every reply I made to them was "Just wait." And the former Priest owner must have not known much about fantasy football because I was basically able to convince him that Priest was going to have to retire from football because of his injuries. :-)


Anyone with half a brain would question why you'd want such a hurt player. ;)

I've been wondering when we would hear the lowdown on this, Hawk.
Pretty interesting experiment.
Here's a thought though, having basically no team to begin with, this gave you a massive advantage when scavaging the waiver wire. You didn't have to decide whether a previously proven player was worth dropping in favor of an upstart. "Hey, simply pick up the upstart, and drop my garbage." If the pickup performs, great, if not... simply hit the wire again. In other words, you were able to take chances on waiver players that other teams were unwilling to take. While most teams were playing it safe, you were able to say "screw it I'll give him a shot." Worked out pretty well. ;-D

Exactly. For instance, I didn't have any second thoughts about dropping Hayden Epstein for Santana Moss.

Funny, but I've heard from reputable NFL sources, that Ebstein wandered his way from Bourbon Street to the Saints Headquarters and managed to mumble, "Mardi Gras, it's freakin' Mardi Gras... not Carnival. Carney, Carnival, Carney, Carnival... how you like me, now!"
Ebstein was immediatly signed, and should be the Saints leading scorer in 2004.

That give me another idea. In honor of my wife's heritage, I will draft only Jewish players.

Jay Fiedler, Hayden Epstein...

Uhhh, now I'm stuck.
