One of those great fantasy days. Took a few weeks, but everything I envisioned when I drafted this team has come to fruition the last two weeks. I have absolutely no depth whatsoever.

I saw your score and wasn't able to find out where all these points came from?

Drew Brees, an All-Star group of receivers (Fitz, Welker, Green), McGahee and the darn kicker who I was scratching my head when he drafted - especially since the Rams have a terrible offense - and all he does is hit multiple 50-yard FG's every week lol. He had good matchups too with just about everyone, I thought this might happen.

Get it out of your system this week, a 60-burger is due for our match next week. ;)

Greg Zuerlein was my ace up my sleeve going into the draft. I knew the Rams offense would improve, but still not be strong enough to punch in many scores. Then I see this rookie kicker in pre-season with a leg like no other with a staff willing to send him out there for 57-63 yard attempts no problem. Add that they play in a dome, and it was a no brainer.

I'm probably down for a few bad weeks coming up.

Brillant strategy. Kudos. I probably would have gone this route if Cundif were still our kicker. I knew no one would know about Tucker and his leg. But I never realized how good Zuerlein is. Wow. Again I tip my cap.

Pretty Sure I am officially the hottest team right now... BTW the end of the weekend I should have the most points... maybe My drating was not as bad as I thought...

I have been playing fantasy football for a long time, and I don't think I can remember a 170-spot being put by anyone no matter the league scoring settings. Wow.

And still time to improve on that number...

You weren't the only one.....I pounded the Bills fan like they WERE the Bills :lol:

Waiver Wire Whining! Pulverizes LOTCB, Moves Up to Sixth Place

  • Waiver Wire Whining! (3-2) 103.38 -- LOTCB (1-4) 54.74

Waiver Wire Whining! picked up 22.88 points from Jay Cutler and 16.60 from Frank Gore to annihilate LOTCB 103.38 - 54.74. LOTCB has had a string of bad luck lately after losing their third in a row. LOTCB, coming off a 117.40 - 103.10 loss against Masked Marauders, saw their scoring drop substantially this week. To make matters worse, LOTCB had two starters score zero points (Brandon Pettigrew and Hakeem Nicks). Waiver Wire Whining! (3-2, 486.20 points) climbs into sixth place and LOTCB (1-4, 441.26 points) sinks into the cellar.

Wow the recap here does show the beatdown :lol:

Awesome performance!

But what's with this league teeing off on me for two years in a row?

This year: hardest schedule: average of 117.84

All time: hardest schedule... you guess it, me. last year, 112.87

Smallest margin of defeat average, all time? yep, me again... 6.04

and I like my team... boo.

You're seventh in points scored though, slightly below average so your record should 'probably' be 2-3 - not a big leap from 1-4. You were eighth in points this week so might as well have been roasted now instead of wasting a 120-130 point game when your opponent gets 175.

Thanks Shonn Greene. More fantasy points today than he has had all season. Pretty sweet day with Brees on a bye week.

Especially since you probably don't start him if DeAngelo also wasn't on a bye lol (I wouldn't have either, with how hideous he's been, but the Colt run defense was more hideous as it turned out).

I might get to 4-2 myself, but this is one fugly game with Manta :P I'd seriously already be 2-4 if not for Jason Hanson. Thank goodness Romo finally came back to life in the second half today.

Jeebus, the Green Bay offense is going off. 81 points from Rodgers and Nelson for LaFlamme and he's still going to lose.

It is funny, because from a guy that had Rodgers last year, I knew that no lead is big enough, especially when you add his top receiver with him. That is why I was pumped that Ponder gave me a few last minute since I knew 110 was probably not enough.

I got McGahee tomorrow just in case something crazy happens.

How fortunately for you that the Colts were on tap.

I have one last trick up my sleeve for tonight!!! I don't want to be beaten your your kicker

Just hoping Manning throws his TD passes to WRs this weekend and not TEs. I should be able to pull this out if that happens
