WHAT! You didn't start Romo??? With all of ESPN & NFL channel off-season hype over him?? (sarcasm off, kinda, ha ha)

but then again I have a descion to make, do I

A) Start Locker, my keeper qb vs a vunerable Pats secondary but the Titans don't have really any good pass catchers on their roster.

or

B)RG3, vs the Saint D. I may be a Saints fan but even I know that defense has sucked even with the Super Bowl title & now it's a shell of it's former self, but RG3 is a rookie, first game, etc etc (then again look at Scam last year.....)

or

C) Start Russell Wilson & take my chances.....

plus work makes me have to set everything on Saturday night, so if early game starters are OUT, I'm pretty much screwed for that game

Ah fantasy football, gotta love it


I say roll the dice and start RGIII.

Nope, I was stupid and decided to go with Matt Ryan against a possibly depleted Chiefs D. Hopefully I pay a big fantasy price for that poor decision.


Hopefully I get to collect on that price.
I'm just hoping my decision to sit Bradshaw for Trent Richardsen doesn't bite me in the butt. Fortunately I switched him to the RB/WR slot so if they do end up sitting him, I can throw in a WR at the last minute.

I left way too many points on my bench.

My bench is pretty much a legal team. Is need to swap an under performing WR for a defense...and it has the possibility of outscoring my opponent's starters. It already outscored...slaughtered...my starters.

Actually just checked the scoreboard. My bench outscored everyone but Rupert. And is 1 point behind Stefan with a WR vs RB matchup tonight.

Yay for me! My only concern is that my opponent is still projected to beat me, which was kinda the story of my season last year, most of my high scoring weeks coincided with the same for my opponent (sometimes freakishly high scores!)

EDIT: Actually realised he's projected a point behind me, but still.

I find it humorous that the Freebirds got 15 points out of Vick, but are sitting at 12 points total with 2 players to go!

I am pretty disappointed that my only good choice this week was telling Randy to start RGIII. :down:

Just wanted to let you all know that the Week 1 trophies have been awarded. Hopefully, I can stay on top of these this season. If I don't have them up by Wednesday, somebody give me a prod and I'll get to it!

I squeaked that one out. I figured I was done for when that Baltimore WR had a 50 yard pass play on the second play from scrimmage. Apparently that's all he had though, wheww
