Seems like we still have too many WRs in the top 25 and not enough RBs.

Last year was around the same numbers, this year it seems we just moved them from the QB to the WR.

I agree with you on the flex request. If we keep it a full PPR league next year, I'll add TE to the flex position. More options are always better than fewer.

As for Cameron, you could always lower your standards and trade him for a WR2/3 who is better than your normal flex-play (Amendola or Heyward-Bey). At least then your team might score more points overall, since Cameron won't see your line-up unless Graham gets hurt.

An alternative could be to just combine the WR and TE positions, eliminating the TE slot. The league I started in used to do that, not sure if it was because the software wouldn't let us or another reason.

I used to like having the TE as a separate slot, but each year we seem to have 3 or 4 super TE's, and the rest are hit or miss. It might be easier if we just combine the two, and not worry about the TE slot.

Need to break this year's curse.

Lose 2 games, win 1. Repeat. Twice.


Hopefully, the next 3 games won't be a repeat!!

A big Ouch for HaK this week!!

He scored more than projected (around 30+ more) for himself and his opponent (chipgreen), who also proceeded to score more (around 35 pts.) than projected.

Ouch! And HaK had the #1 QB this week too!

Double Ouch for using his Optimal Lineup as well!

In unrelated news, who knew it'd be so damn hard to get a Basketball league going?!?!?! We've been stuck at 5 managers for weeks and can't get the autodraft going.

Someone jump on this grenade!

If that doesn't work, search for league # 96601. No password needed.

  • Wine.woots: um, lost count.
  • Other woots: um, lost count too. I might have a problem.

See, if they made it so that you'd only need to worry about a weekly lineup, I'd be in!

But until then, I've got my country's 500th anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder and Guilder to frame for it; I'm swamped.

You can set your lineup as far in advance as you like, then would only need to reset in case of injuries, trades or free agent acquisitions. It's more work because you have to set it for each day but it's easy enough to swap guys in and out based on their scheduled games.

Another game that comes down to Monday night for me and Chipgreen.

Looks like BFD made it to the championship already, getting that rare "W" against the Cereal Rapists.

Yes, I'm just glad to still have a chance with no AP and a poor performance by Graham. I need to call Tonya Harding for Jeff Gilooly's number so he can do a job on Reggie Bush's knee for me. Otherwise I'll be lucky to get 10 pts. out of Joique Bell tonight.

Good luck. Here's hoping that whichever of us wins tonight goes on to take the trophy and the highly coveted River of Skulls!

Done in by a Kicker! Now I know how the players feel when they spill their blood for 60 minutes only to have the outcome decided by a converted soccer player, haha.

Congrats, PB! Good luck in the Final.

Thank you. Quite a surprise to see that my kicker got me the win.

I think you had me by a couple points even without Tucker's performance but he put up video game numbers! Congrats again.

What a week for everyone to crap out. I mean everyone. Tip of the hat to BFD. Favored at the start, and pulled it off. Never expected to get this far, but can't get River of Skulls here in CT, and almost made it.

Great season. Fun times.

Oh, and Chip Green, great job in 3rd. Not much different, and you would be champ. Well done.

I did not have the best team, but I definitelly had the best luck. And in Head-to-Head, luck rules. Thanks everyone for a great year and a delicious bottle of wine. See you all next year.
