    Started Flacco over Manning. Almost backfired on me against StupidFlanders.

    Guess this qualifies as a pretty huge mistake: right after I traded for Ryan Williams last week, he's out for the season. F*ck me.


    You got lucky this time, XBay! Right deal at the right time. I'm not making any more deals with you... If I'm gonna look a fool, I'd rather do it from the waiver wire. :lol:

    Kyle Rudolph will forever be doomed to the bench. I thought he would be a consistent redzone target for Ponder since he started the year with high production. However, since picking him up he has put up something like 1 point and the only productive fantasy player on the Vikings seems to be Harvin.

    My TE position overall just seems to be a mess, and has been since the start of the year. Pettigrew had no production, FInley has done nothing (and I benched him this week), Rudolph has ceased production ever since entering my starting lineup and I just picked up (gulp) Greg Olsen off of waivers. Frustrated with that but otherwise I am feeling good and have won two in a row.

    Rudolph scored a TD this week. I am confused... He has scored a TD in 3 of his last 4 games. I would say that is pretty good production from a non-elite TE... in fact had he not gotten his TD, you would have lost your game.

    Oh uhhhh hold on let me just remove the foot from my mouth here.....should have looked more closely. He must have scored the touchdown late because at one point I looked and he had .50

    This is a gripe about a future mistake, sort of a gripe in advance: Ahmad Bradshaw, Trent Richardson and Jimmy Graham are all questionable for sunday's games. I've been forced already to claim Jermain Gresham again in case Graham can't go, and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna f*ck up somehow and the one that doesn't play on my fantasy team will have a huge game in real life.

    So far, I think I'll go with Trent, who seems like the safest pick of the group, and Gresham, because, according to Saints practice reports, Graham just can't move very well. But something will happen and I'll f*ck up my choices. I said it here first.

    LOL, I like it.............a pre-emptive cathartic release! good stuff. ;)

    Yeah, I think Trent will be fine, maybe a slight reduction in workload...............Bradshaw relatively the same but more carries for Brown and Wilson. Graham worries me, I have him on one of my teams and my only back is Fleener, with the best option of the wire being Keller.

    Managed to get a win last week with Fleener starting, obviously not because of him..............at least you have got some decent options in case he is totally ruled out (I think he will be come kick off) but I mean even if he isnt ruled out, he is more than likely going to be very limited.............so youre better off going with another option.

    As I said to Bada, 3 points is better than no points (if you have the options of course, Bada didnt want that option).

    Trent better gets to play. He's got a great matchup against the Colts, who turned Shonn Green into Walter Payton last week...

    Oh, well... at least I've got Ridley, and the Pats will be without Bolden for the game, so Stevan should get a ton of carries.

    It's a shame about Bradshaw, because he's coming from two dominant performances, and the one vs the Niners was particularly impressive, but seems like the Giants won't force him if he's not ready. Might play, but not see a huge workload.

    As for Graham... yeah, too risky. And the Bucs are doing quite well on the passing game as of late (3 games without allowing a passing TD). Our defensive stats look like sh*t because Eli shredded our D on week 2 for 500+ yards and several TDs, but we're pretty decent if you don't count that game. I expect a huge number of targets for Colston, kinda like two weeks ago...

    So Gresham it is... at least the Steelers still won't have Polomalu back.

    I knew it... Trent is healthier the whole week, practices without much trouble and on game day ends up 1.9 points. Bradshaw is hurt the whole week and barely practices, on game day has 12.5 points, including a TD, so far.

    There goes Trent Richardson, precisely the first day of the season I don't have him starting... :bang

    At least Ridley is tearing a new one to the Rams D.

    I lose because the refs call a BS penalty on Aldon Smith that keeps a drive alive so that the Bears can score an undeserved touchdown and Robbie Gould can kick an extra point, which makes me lose by .5 points. Not to mention my dynamic duo of receivers Bowe and Maclin who combined for 0 FUCKING points.

    Wow. That's some tough luck, Rob.

    I've just realized that Tarantism kept two guys on a bye week in his starting lineup. I would have won anyway (well, maybe not if Schaub had been the starter, but we all know Matt Ryan was going to be his starter no matter what), but it's yet another week with a somewhat sour taste in the win.

    Rough stuff there Robbo.................my biggest mistake of the week (in my league where I need every damned win I can get) was playing a guy who had Andre Johnson, Dez Bryant, Gronk and Brady.

    PPR league! so f*cking Johnson and Bryant had 79 points between them! :eek: :bang then Brady added 31 and Gronk 32................f*cking awesome. :evil:
