    I thought I had a fantasy beast in Kaepernick... now I don't know what to expect


    I got fucked by Kapernick this weekend... well it was a combination of a shitty performance by Kapernick and Graham posting 30 points...

    I lost by 6 points...

    If I had of started Moreno instead of Ryan Matthews or Daryl Richardson, I'd be 2-0 instead of 1-1 right now... :fp: ... who would have predicted that...

    I'm 1-1 in fourth place in the league and I've scored 30 points more than the first place team... :fp:

    FF is so frustrating.

    Luckily I still won both my leagues because I also have Graham and Seattle D

    FF is so unbelievably frustrating sometimes but I am obsessed and can never quit

    Need some help. Do I start Vick or Ryan this week. Can't decide.


    Also, picked up Dwayne Bowe today and only had to give up Joique Bell.

    That's a good choice to have. Ryan is missing SJax this week so they may throw more.

    Would you trade David Wilson for Ridley?
    Alright, alright, alright!

    Giants have 0 running game. Vereeen is on the IR. I would rather have Ridley.

    Dropped McGhee on wednesday to pick up rivers on Wednesday.... He's the best available QB, and I don't have a backup for Kapernick should he completely implode this week in Indy...

    Then I hear McGhee is now talking to Cleveland to become a feature back and I'm 12th on the waiver wire..... :x :x :x :x :x :x :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.

    Brutal. I was 9th on the waiver wire and didn't get McGahee today. Although I did pick up James Starks earlier this week so not a bad week.

    I don't think he is going to be anything special. He is somewhat injury prone and the Browns are a terrible team who cannot block for him. I would not worry about missing out on him unless you are really desperate for a RB.

    I'm not relying on him... I have McCoy, Daryl Richardson, Ryan Matthews, and Moreno... not to mention Pierre Thomas, and I dropped Ingram earlier.... Mcghee just would have been great to have for trade bait... I have Wes Welker and Megatron... both of which have bye's in week 9, and my bench WR's (Golden Tate and Lance Moore) are underperforming beyond belief....

    the more I think about it though... he probably is going to be useless in cleveland anyway... the bronco's didn't resign him as they felt he was "out of football shape", and he took reps with 2 other teams (Giants and Dolphins) last week, and both decided not to sign him.... so that kinda tells me he's probably going to be useless.
    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.

    I lost by one tenth of a point!!!!!!!!!!! One damn tenth. To make matters worse, I lost when they overturned the Vincent Brown down at 1 yard play and turned it into a TD. To make me miserable, my opponent had Peyton. To really stick it to me, James Jones got a big fat zero!

    Yea, I'm pissed

    Now its week 4 and I have my second heartbreak loss to bring me to 2-2

    Last night Sproles and Graham lead me to what looks like is a miraculous comeback win. Sproles gains 18 yards towards the end of the fourth quarter and I take my first lead of the matchup. Sproles fumbles at the end of the run and I lose by .7 of a point.

    Two wins and two losses by less than a point. Oh, and we had the two highest scores in the league this week. Oh, and Stevie Johnson had 1 yard for me. :x :x :x

    Sproles won my game in one league and Graham helped climb out of a 21 point hole going against Pierre Thomas. I wound up winning that game by a point. Sproles and Graham are beasts.

    Finally something good to post in this thread. Was up by 28 points going into last night and my opponent had AP and Kyle Rudolph. Luckily the Vikings looked like complete shit. Ended up winning by 20 points. Win brought me to 3-4 and kept me alive to maybe get into the playoffs.

    This is not a thread to come and gloat. Leave it for all the people checking in on Tuesday morning to commiserate. :lol:
