The "Hindsight is 20/20" maneuvers of the week...

Moderator: Football Moderators

Postby dfer » Mon Oct 11, 2004 7:45 pm

In one of my leagues, I wrote off week 5 pre-season. After all, Donovan McNabb, Priest Holmes, Chad Johnson and Tony Gonzalez would all have the week off. Vanderjagt got injured to make matters worse. All I wanted to do was field a team that wouldn't totally embarass me. So with a little fiddling on the waiver wire and dredging the depths of my bench, I was forced to run with:

QB: David Carr
WR: Andre Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, Darrell Jackson
RB: Tiki Barber, Mewelde Moore
TE: Eric Johnson
K: Kris Brown
DEF: Baltimore

Thus proving the old saw "it's better to be lucky than good"...

Starting Quentin Griffin. Oh man, Leonard Henry's 10 or so points are looking real good right now.

Benching Larry Fitzgerald in favour of Jerry Porter. I just knew the Raiders would light up the Colts secondary. Yet another blunder on my march towards 0-5...

Picked up Droughns but didn't start him due to a report that Hearst & Bell & Drougns would all split carries.
Played Pinner instead, so at least I got a td.

Starting Suggs instead of Fitzgerald as my flex like I almost did. The difference in points would have won me the week.

10 team league - High performance scoring = 1 pt per reception
1 QB 2RB 2WR 1 RB/WR/TE 1 D 1K

Qb - Hasselback, Leftwich
RB - Alexander, F Taylor, Q Griffen, L Suggs,
WR - Ward, D Jackson, Fitzgerald, Bennett, Rod Gardner
K - Jay Feely
D - Lions

My last minute benching of David Givens for Terry Glenn. Fortunately I still won.
