Ugh. Why is it that players who are duds one week and get you no points, when you bench them next week they are superstars?

    It is frustrating. My advice is always just use who you feel are the best players week after week. Screw the matchups.

    Chris Johnson. Only 18 carries thruogh 2 games??? I dont know what the coaches in Tennessee are thinking, but how the hell do you expect this guy to get going with that few touches? I can't believe I'm seriously thinking about benching my first round pick in week 3.

    Of course when I bench Chris Johnson, he finally has a good game. Looking at 0-4 to start the season...I hate fantasy football.

    You are really complaining about a near 16 pt performance?!? Try having Forte and Nicks on your team- who get 0 pts every week because they dont play.

    Wishes I would have looked at my lineup prior to Thursday's game. Didn't realize I was starting Amendola! Doh! He's had some good weeks, but I would have benched him and had either Wayne or Colston in the lineup.

    I think he likes Fantasy Football, he's got his little do- hicky out for the games
    watching his scores. :lol:

    Decker falling down. I would've won my game after that 80yd td catch but no, I had to stay up and suffer to the end. At least I won.

    Sunday night I went to bed thinking I won by .1 and moving up to a tie for 1st place. Adjustments to my defense caused me to lose by 10 points.

    Fuming.

    some idiot dropped BJGE in my league this week. The guy who picked him up on the wire is trying to trade him for Gregg Jennings. Tempting considering Jennings groin injury and I have roddy white and jordy Nelson
    I know once I do, Jennings is going to come back to form

    The bye weeks a might work out to my advantage too. Jennings is probably out this week. And they have a bye in two weeks.
