Default Fantasy Football Woes

Usually I don't like to complain about a loss. No matter how prepared you are bad luck happens and you just roll with the punches and try to have fun. But this week, in my 12 standard league I currently have 36.2 pts, with only my flex spot left to play.

Jamal Charles got upstaged by not one, but both of his back-ups. Steve Jackson got kept out of the game by his coach for spiking the ball. Brandon Marshall seemed to lather his hands in butter before every play on Thurs, and the Raiders defense gave up 35 points to Miami.

Anyone else have a particularly horrible week 1/2?

I usually play the waiver wire each week for a DST, so this past week I dropped Buffalo (-1 last week) for Oakland, who got -1 this week. Still going to win with 148 to 115, but that was just a dumb mistake. Buffalo was worth about 18 in that league.

I'm also glad to see I'm not the only one who got screwed by Oakland. Or was I screwed by Reggie Bush? I guess both :/

I think I'm just gonna make a habit of not underestimating the Dolphins, unless they are facing a team with a good pass rush.

I didn't have Fred, but now I have an idea of what happens when you don't draft a handcuff for these top tier injury prone running backs, cause one of our guys decided to actually draft CJ in the draft and now he's balling pretty hard and the guy with Fred Jackson is struggling to stay afloat.

Well, I have CJ Spiller and Darren Sproles starting for me and have Matt Ryan playing tonight. I'm at 156 points this week. Winner winner chicken dinner.

Those injuries are the difference for me easily. Lost by small enough margins. Additionally. I seem to have faced the higher scoring opponents early where suffering injuries hurts most. Sucks to be snake bit and im wondering who i'll lose next week.

I had a huge week in most of my fantasy games...on the Pick'em, not so good. I will say that the league changes from year to year and it takes about 6 games to figure out who's good and who is really good in a given year. Right now, break out players continue to break out, some just flash...all in all I loved this weekend and all the upsets and great play by some of the younger stars. Great stuff.

I started Turner and he hasn't done a damn thing. Reggie Wayne was shut down and Witten is invisible. If I play FF next year its going to be a free league. Having money involved doesn't even make it fun.

Just call me "Contra"... I'm a great contra-indicator for my players.

If I start them, the guys on the bench blow up & the starters get frozen out of the endzone.

This. Jordy Nelson got 41 points in my bigger league. I have Rivers and Demaryius Thomas going tonight, he only has Prater left. I'm down, 116-171. If Rivers has a game similar to what Josh Freeman did yesterday, and Thomas has a game similar to last week, then I've got a shot at winning.

Come on shoot-out with Thomas being the primary target!

The woes have really hit me. Take a look at the players on my team: Greg Jennings, Darren Sproles, Amendola, MJD, Jimmy Graham, CJ Spiller, Jeremy Maclin

The one common denominator: they have been or currently are injured!!!

My team is snake bit.
