Default The fantasy football "bum" thread

Looks like I have plenty of bums on my roster, but the one who's got me pissed off the most is Kevin Kolb.

I don't care whose fault it is that he's out.....his O-Line....the Packers D.....Dom f^(king Capers.....

Because of him, I had to make a deal with the devil and pick up Mike Vick this week.....who I hate getting more than a case of herpes.

2nd place goes to Shonn Greene.....I have no words for his level of incompetence.

Yep! I won my game this week even with Greene in the starting lineup.

I drafted him in the fifth round in my money league. But I made sure I drafted another good QB in the seventh which was Eli Manning as my insurance just because Kolb hadn't proven anything yet in the NFL. Kolb hasn't killed me yet cause I didn't start him but I will only give him a month or so before I drop his ass.

I did the same two years ago with Aaron Rodgers. But I didn't need his backup since the guy lit it up from the beginning.

I drafted Favre in the 4th or 5th round, but I hate that guy almost as much as I hate Vick. I don't like him at all this week against Miami with no WR's to throw to.

That bastard Vick should put up some points. We all know how much he hates to give the rock to anyone else.

DeAngelo Williams and DeSean Jackson were both huge bums last time.

I may start Maclin next time, since I feel he will be better with Vick (and he saved me last week)

Half my team sucked. Frank Gore, 9ers D, CJ Spiller, all bums. Kyle Orton rocked solid though. My opponent had three people get zero points and killed me. Had Foster and Manning.

Dunno, but for some reason, it seems like there's a really weak pool to pick from this season. It struck me during one of my drafts.

Has this crossed anyone else's mind?

Week 1 hasn't done anything to change this opinion. Seems like there's more bums to go around than usual.

I got Brady and Kolb was my backup. I let Kolb go when I saw Garrard was still on the table and he plays Buffalo when Brady goes on a bye. Eagles play someone hard.

I picked up Kolb in all three of my leagues, luckily he was a starter in only 1 league. But damn, losing your startin job to Vick after 1 quarter? That is the definition of a bum right there.

CJ Spiller, what a bum. Not going to write him off just yet but it's not looking good.

Im in 3 leagues so yeah, i've got a few...

Jonathan Stewart - mainly b/c he's got no qb & teams are stacking the box, but also b/c he hasn't warranted stealing carrys away from williams. Dude has netted me a grand total of like 10 pts in 3 games


Shonn Greene- the only reason he's not #1 is b/c stewart has been been atrocious & b/c i was smart & drafted LT later going on a hunch that he wasn't quite done yet. but yeah he's right up there.


Calvin Johnson - this is tricky b/c his numbers wouldn't look so bad if the refs hadn't screwed him in the chi. game & stafford didn't get hurt in the 1st freaking game.

TO - Batman's looking flabby & sick right now

yeah good clean fun if you like getting needles shoved in your eyeballs every time you pull up his numbers. I've been lucky so far to win more than i've lost in the league that i have him in, but if i don't at least place, i'm holding him personally responsible. At least my other guy is slowly getting untracked (ray rice), Stewart is just...At this point i'm just happy it's one of my lesser money leagues (35.00) and not my big money ones.

Check out my stats from the TexansTalk 1st Annual FFL this week. First number is predicted score, second is actual. Still have GB defense, Mathews and Urlacher playing tonight. I had some real bums in my draft, but I've made some decent pickups. Colston is killing me so far, but I hate to sit him.


QB Drew Brees 16.68 23.00
WR Anquan Boldin 8.26 33.00
WR Marques Colston 9.81 5.00
WR Austin Collie 9.91 32.00
RB Arian Foster 16.52 13.00
RB Darren McFadden 8.64 18.00
TE Dustin Keller 7.55 22.00
W/R Mike Tolbert 12.45 10.00
K Neil Rackers 9.02 7.00
DEF Green Bay 10.83 0.00
D Bernard Pollard 8.84 10.50
D Clay Matthews 5.69 0.00
D Brian Urlacher 6.74 0.00
D Jerod Mayo 7.50 9.50
