Looks like i won't get my back to back league championship title....TexasArlingtons is kicking my ass. And my dumb ass wasn't paying attention to the injury report and had ivory starting.

I had a bad feeling once Frank Gore got IR'd.


I'll fight for 3rd place next week and be ready to get my redemption :)

Well unless Tebow has a monster 4th qtr & Longwell outscores Brady by quite a bit, looks like I will be facing Texas Arlingtons in the final.

I stopped doing Fantasy Football when I did it with my wife one year.. and she had no idea how it worked.. so I picked her roster.. and then she ended up kicking my ass all season long.

edit: I'm leading by 5+ and he has Longwell left.

You can say that again. After making the playoffs in all but one of my leagues last year, I was done completely after week 5 this year.

Alright guys, i will be renewing this league again this year. Like usual, i'll let the people who played this past year have first priority in joining first, and after a couple of weeks i'll open it up to the rest of the forum. Let me know if you guys are interested.

I will likely renew sometime tonight, draft in mid-late August.

OK, the league is officially set. Sorry for those who didn't get in this year, i gave the original guys about two weeks to respond and then gave the remaining spots to those who requested first. Hopefully next year.

As for the draft, would you guys be interested in a sort of offline draft doing it on the forums here, or just stick to the original live draft on Yahoo? What about the date? Would August 21st be a good day still?

I set aside the time for it. I'd prefer the live draft on Yahoo, I think. Doing a draft via the forum would take a while and be crazy, I'd imagine.

Yeah would take a while, but it sounds like it could be interesting if we can get people to check in periodically to make their picks.


I'm perfectly fine with a live draft though, just thought i'd stir the pot a little bit.

Texans34Life
08-04-2011, 04:51 PM
Draft on forum would take too long. Done forum drafts and they have lasted days....weeks.

Yahoo live draft would be done in 2 hours max.

Also, could we change the date to something later in the month, something closer to the start of the season? If we could do 28th or later, that would give us a clearer idea who got injured during preseason and who's healthy/ready for season openers.

If not, that's cool.

I like the live draft and the 21st works really well for me. I'm able to adjust but that weekend the family is out of town so I'm free to do as I please.

I personally wanted to thank you for that first pick-it allowed me to get Arian Foster with the second pick.

I said this earlier but I had the same problems last year. I was driving back from the inlaws and missed the draft. I ended up with 3 kickers and 3 guys that were out for the season. It follows that I had a horrible season.

Yeah, trust me when I say, the pre-draft rankings is a crock o poo. I had Arian #1 then AP.

Do you have more than one web browser? You could have had your draft on Internet Explorer and your son's on Firefox.

If I had more time I could've done that, but we didn't get on the cpu until draft time. When I tried firing up Firefox to set up another draft it started screwing up. I didn't want both my Son and I to have crappy teams so I said screw it.

It's coo though. I'm not bishin. I'll still play this league as much as the other two, winning or losing.

I can thank Drew Brees, Reggie Wayne, and Darren Sproles for basically doing all the work for me in fantasy this week. Up by 18 on Texas T and he has Dan Carpenter and Deion Branch, and i have Brandon Marshall. Lee Evans put up a whopping 0 points for me, not off to a good start for my sleeper pick.

Everyone is beating me this week. My players decided that they didn't need to show up for their games...In one league I'm loosing to a guy who started Payton Manning...there's always next week.

Sproles was a surprise. I really would never have believed that he would be busting out runs like that. Great pick up for the Saints. Hope the Texans D can stop him in two weeks.

Thanks to Tom Brady, I pulled out a win in one league.

Thanks to Sebastian Janikowski (and Knowshon Moreno being on the other team), I pulled out a win in another league.

In the third league I'm in, my luck ran out. Schaub's fantasy value was low last weekend. Not that I'm complainin.

And those kickers are on opposing teams today (Balt vs. SD).

It won't let me edit very much until everyone assigns their keepers but i think it will only be one keeper once i change it. And if you do choose to assign a keeper you'll have to give up a draft pick 2 rounds ahead of where you got him last year.

I'll play IF it's not a keeper league.

Sorry to be picky. :world peace:

By the way, is this league the one where even the points by your bench players count for each game too? I played in a league like that and it was sooooo much better because:

1. It makes drafting your late rounders more challenging, rather than "just picking a guy" because ya gotta pick a guy to fill out the bench spots.

2. Your bench players are earners. It makes people less inclined to add/drop 1,000 times every week, generally making life less complicated.

3. No need to cry on Monday morning when you realize you should have started QB A over QB B. Since all players' points count, you can relax and actually enjoy fantasy football.

A friend of mine said he is in FF purely for the reason of the gamble it takes every week to guess which guy(s) to start and which to bench. For me, that's the worst part of it. The best part is drafting, working waiver wire, and then sitting back and enjoying the Sundays rather than having minor coronaries because I started the wrong guy.

I had two QBs last year that I started the wrong guy every single Sunday. Not kidding. If I chose one guy, the other one went bananas. Vice versa. Soul sucking experience.

It's not gonna be a keeper I don't think, unless the remaining people who haven't voted overwhelmingly approve it.

There's still 6 spots unfilled after the emails so there should be spots open for people who request to get in.

Looks like I escaped with a week 1 victory. If Fred Jackson had finished the game i would have gotten buried.

I just renewed the league. When i sent out the invites it automatically set it as a keeper league. If no one is interested in that, i'll remove it. If you are, we can work out some keeper rules.

I of course give the people from last year first priority in joining, but i will open it up a couple weeks before the draft if the other people have not joined yet.

This league this year was the absolute worst season I've ever had in fantasy football. Nothing I did seemed to work and my downfall goes all the way back to drafting Ray Rice and MJD with my first two picks. After that it was all just Ppppfffft.

And it looks like you avenged him since I don't see Vernon Davis and the kicker getting me the points to pull this one out. Kind of fitting you get the win with two performances by guys facing my two favorite teams. Peyton Manning ripped my Texans and LeSean Mccoy ripped my Bears. Leave it to my teams to give it to me in the end lol. Been that kind of season.

I had a rough time of it last night. In this league, I needed some points from Luck to be able to beat ArlingtonTexan but in another league, I needed Luck to not score over a certain amount because I'd lose that game. In another league, I needed Vinaitieri to score about 10 field goals.

Texans Talk playoffs kicks off this week. I'm glad i was able to get on a hot streak after such a rough start. Hope i can bring it home again this year.

Looks like your hot streak continues and my cold one too. Almost all my guys forgot that they were playing ...

That was the story in all my leagues.
But the Texans won and real football always trumps fantasy!

I'll take a Texans win this week over anything pretty much :fans::fans:

From 3-4 to the championship. Hopefully the Texans can learn from me.
