Is fantasy football predictable for you?

I am always changing my roster in the wrong way and having lots of points on my bench. How about you?

Nothing you could really do about that. You start your best players usually and don't think twice. Rod Smith had 11 points on my bench and Koren Robinson had 3 as my 3rd starter... there's no telling what will happen so you just start your best players and hope for the best.

Well I hate to say it but you really suck at fantasy if you always make the wrong moves. :-b

But it does have a lot to do with luck, and of course the 50/50/90 rule.

If there is a 50/50 shot of making the right decision, you will be wrong 90% of the time. ;-D

hahahhahhahhaa!

wide receivers are usually the only ones i can't predict

i have never had a season with a solid set of WR's

now rb's!

i always get a good set of those

this year its faulk, d. davis and c. dillon in a 10 man league!

yeah, This gets me too. Last year I did really well swapping Bulger for Hass in and out of the line up, I was never really wrong but that was just because they played well when expected. I always get WR wrong.

Extremely bad move... anyways, if he produces every other game, next week is his game where he does good.

Burress is inconsistent but remember he was a top WR before last year, and I view 2003 as more of a fluke than anything. Sure he has his incosistencies but he has too much talent to drop.

So true, I had the option to start Griffin or Rudi on Sunday, and I decided to wait a week before I gave Griffin the nod. After all you play it safe in week 1 right? Ouch....

I have a 50-50-90 rule: 90% of the time I'm right. Injuries are what have hurt me, or a player getting banched (Rogers/Boo, who could be benched). I'd say my strongest asset is the middle-late draft and my FA moves. Doing well in these has landed me in the playoffs in every league I've been in since '02. I'm not so good at trades however, so I steer clear of those if I have to.

Here's my main rule: no NFC east except the Skins, no raiders except maybe the K or Gannon because he used to be a skin
Skins fan through thick and thin.
