What's wrong with Peyton Manning?

Postby Wesley Walker » Tue Sep 28, 2004 10:20 pm

He only threw for 5 TDs this Sunday! What's up? Should I trade him for Brees?

Seriously though, we have a lot of panicked people posting. "What's wrong with Santana Moss?" "What's wrong with Derrick Mason?" "What's wrong with Chad Johnson?" What's wrong with Lavernues Coles?"

Two things:

1. Relax. Don't over-react. It's been only three weeks.

2. If football were predctable, fantasy football would not be fun.

For the most part, they are just having bad games.There are many reasons for their low or high productions. Sometimes common sense and actual thought is helpful. Think about it before you ask. Maybe you should be saying,

"WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?"
"WHY AM I TYPING THIS?"
"Maybe I should scroll down and read other posts exactly like this one."
"Why am i over-reacting?"

C'mon guys....and girls....One or two bad weekends in a row is nothing....maybe 3 or 4 or 5 bad games means something. Oh yeah my player sucks ass.

I'm with you guys. I really don't see how people can say that when it's only been 2 or 3 games. It's people that panic that make me wish they were in my fantasy league. I love to buy low and sell high.

Good post Wes.

Also, good sig. I think Wesley Walker was one of the all-time underrated receivers. ;-D

You just gotta believe..

Last year one of the owners in my league gave up mid-year. He was in last place out of six teams and he simply cut off all communications and never submitted a starting lineup for the rest of the season. He had Green (QB), McAllister (RB), Moss (WR), and Gonzo (TE). If he had continued to believe in his team he most surely would have finished in third place and won all of his initial investment back (it was a money league, $100 per owner).

Here is some advice based on my 20 years of fantasy football:

Project the stats you think your players will accumulate over the entire season based on sound criteria. If you think you have a player you think will get you good numbers comparitively when it's all said and done, then keep starting him every week.

No doubt, you have to pay attention to what's happening. On the other hand, studs will usually produce in the long run no matter what. Their situation may inhibit them now and then but don't panic. If you got a play maker and your analysis of him is semi-accurate, then don't despair.

As Jimmy V. said, "Don't ever give up!".
Always do your homework!

Wow, 20 years? That's a long time. I haven't heard of people playing it that long. Baseball maybe... I am sure you have seen a lot of trends in that period of time.
