    ouch. we have a kicked in teh ball prop wager in my one league. team with the highest single week kicker score gets a few bucks. i just took the lead in that catagory with lawrence this week. 19pts.

    i'm sitting at
    7-1
    6-2
    5-3

    all have a good shot at the playoffs, but my playoff luck thru the years has not been very good. :fp:

    Tynes was my kicker as well. I had only 1 TD between all my QB/RB/WR this week. I guess I'll put all my focus on betting point spreads.

    QB dilemma for this weekend. Do I start Rivers tonight vs. the Chiefs or Josh Freeman vs. Oakland. Rivers seems like the easy pick, but he has been awful lately and the Chargers suck. Freeman has had 3 huge games in a row and Oakland isn't very good against the pass. My team sucks...pretty much need to run the table here just to make the playoffs.

    I'm stuck with Rivers tonight as Tom Terrific is on a bye. Personally, I'd go with Freeman as he has been lighting it up lately. Plus, Oakland's D is nothing to writ home about. I was able to get Rivers off the waiver wire or I'd be playing Weeden. I guess that's what I get for only having one QB til now. :nono:

    depending on who the browns play, weeden isn't a bad option. he is my backup in one league.

    Still debating what to do tonight. Kinda leaning towards Rivers right now....mostly based on how awful the Chiefs are.

    Went with Rivers last night. He put up 18 points for me. Not great, but not terrible.

    i'd take that....good call.

    he threw it to brown a bunch and got floyd a td. those two put up 25 points for me vs a projection of 15. i'll take it. at the same time, the guy i am playing had mccluster and he put up 2 points vs a projection of 10.

    nice start to the week.

    Not bad from Brown and Floyd. After that first TD drive, I thought SD was going to put up big points. Turns out I should have picked up their defense for this week.

    That was a brutal game to watch. Man, how bad are the Chiefs?? I still can't believe they haven't held a lead in any game this season. Pathetic.

    You want to talk about fantasy football frustrations? I've got a good one for ya...

    So I've done fantasy hockey a bunch, been an avid football fan for over a decade, but this is my first FF league... figured we'd give it a whirl...

    Anyway to put together the league we had 9 guys, + 1 of the guys girlfriends is all about football, and of course when one girlfriend said she wanted to play, 2 who know nothing about football jumped on the bus... so we wound up with 12.

    So last weekend one of the guys who has a girlfriend who knows nothing about football are playing each other. The guy, Matt (who doesn't know that much about football to begin with), is at 5-2 (out of shear dumb luck), the girl, Amy, is at 2-5. Right? no problems. Anyway, Matt has MJD and Jordy Nelson in the lineup and has to go out of town Tuesday, forgetting to update his line-up... Neither guy plays. Amy, who sees that Matt is fucked (despite the fact she knows nothing about football, actively manages her team), doesn't pick up a defense for the week, she has baltimore who is on bye week, and SITS McGahee AND McCoy on her fucking bench for Felix Jones and Deangelo Williams....

    Anyway, Matt winds up winning 72 to 62 because Amy basically tossed the game. He's now in a tie for first place, as I managed to pull off an underdog victory over the first place team... When confronted about what she did on Wednesday, Amy pretty much giggles and says "Oops, I forgot!".... Meanwhile, Tuesday morning she already updated her roster to put both McCoy and McGahee back into the line-up... (i know this as I am playing her this week)

    anyway, the league commish is buying her story of "forgetting"... while me, and half the people in the league have basically already said "Give me my league fee back because this is bullshit"....

    Next year when I do FF again, it will only be with real football fans... :x :x :x
    Houston, Texas... Believe it or not, there are 7 million people here... must be a couple of fans who'd love to see you play.
