RIP My Fantasy Team


Recommended Posts

After winning both of my leagues last year, it's time to say, RIP, Andrew Luck's Beard of 2014.

 

So, last week, I discovered that Matt Forte hadn't scored enough points for my friend to beat me in our matchup. I won 98-97, and I was very happy, since that made me 3-0 so far. However, little did I know that this was to happen.

Yup, two more points to the Denver defense that he was starting, which was enough to bring him up to 99-98 to make me 2-1.

 

That sounds pretty bad, right? Well, to make it even worse, we're both 2-1 now, and he has the head-to-head advantage over me in our conference.

And this week isn't looking any better, either.

This isn't an overreaction. I won 69-63 Week 1, and scored 108 points in Week 2 (although the Bills defense got me 21, Alfred Morris and Arian Foster both got 20, and Julio Jones got 14. The other 5 players (Brees, Colston, Witten, Vincent Jackson, and Vinatieri) got me a total 33 points that week).

 

Let's mourn together, fellow fantasy players whose seasons are already over!

You brought this upon yourself by drafting Brees. The cardinal rule of fantasy football is you never draft a qb in the first three rounds

Tell that to the rest of the people in my league. Luck was drafted with the sixth overall pick, and Manning and Rodgers were gone shortly after. I didn't want to get stuck with Kaepernick as my weekly starter or something.

Oh yeah, and the Seahawks D was taken in the third round. Not your typical draft.

I think the whole FFL is on it's head with all of the injuries and suspensions.

 

I have two teams in 2 different leagues and the only player I've lost thus far is Kyle Rudolph.  

 

I'm 2-2 in both though.  (In one all the players have played so I have a win there, in the other one all he has left is his kicker and he's down by 20.)

If that's the case you are pretty lucky to have avoided the injuries and suspensions. I have played FFL for a long time and there is one thing I have learned, You never can tell what is going to happen. I guess that's why they call it fantasy? :woah:

Yeah I know. . . that's why I'm constantly patrolling the waiver wire.

So what youre saying is you drafted with a bunch of *s and instead of taking advantage of them you decided to join in the stupidity?

 

Everytime one of your buddies took a qb, your chances of getting a first round quality rb in the second round increased.

 

Also you didnt have to get stuck with Kap. Matt Ryan fell to atleast the 4th round in every draft I was in. Cutler and Rivers were always available in the 6th. Guess which three qbs are out scoring Brees by about 20 points each?

    • A win is a win, but still a lot of issues with the offense, from Reich sounds like Ryan has control of the protection calls. They may need to give it to Kelly, idk if that would help but they need to try something. I would like to see more passes down field instead of the occasional deep throw to Dulin, if the defense is gonna stack the box try some intermediate passes maybe do a rollout away from the pressure. I'm just a fan but I feel there is more in the play calling department that would help the offense (and the O-line) instead of passing for 4 yards.   IDK if the Chiefs were overlooking this game as they play the Bucs next week, but I don't think we got their best effort. I'm not trying to discount the defenses performance because they played well and I was glad to see Rodgers get some snaps even if that was just because Gilmore was hurt.    
    • W or L, I'm still same. Complimentary on good, call out bad.  Not blind regardless. 
    • totally with flexing... all night games.  Have fun!
    • I see what your saying, IMO def bounces and looks better than Offense faster. This OL needs better play and Frank going to have to make better playcalls going forward. Robinson RB on Jags is not a joke.....IMO   Don't take credit away from Lawrence and Mills they both have made some huge nfl pro passes not just short passes. C'mon now they have improved and anybody that watches football knows they have....   I'm not a huge coaching fan of Frank or Ballard is the GM. I just know this is my team going to support them. I will come in here and complain after a loss cause I have to get it out of my system. When Colts lose everyone is going too hear about it.    When they win I'm still going to put out what they need to improve on.   I read a ton of your posts and agree with a 1/2 ton of them. Just give credit where due. Doesn't have to be Frank or Ballard just give the credit.   Mills and Lawrence are young and improving each game. They just don't play a old Patriot short pass game..
    • I keep thinking maybe Smith has lost a step in getting to speed rushers and would be better inside where he played in college. Pryor, from what I remember, was better on the right side.
