note how I typed shrewd late round decisions without quotes and "taking a chance" with quotes... just the context of the use of language should answer your question B )

I picked Peterson in my money league.... as my flex guy :P (remember I am in 4 leagues this year)
then again getting Braylon Edwards in round 12 last year worked out well too

you name me the team that wins in fantasy football that doesn't have some late round/waiver wire genius in it, or have you not actually won a league anywhere to be able to compare it too??? :whistling:



Typically, late round/waiver wire pick-ups have nothing to do with genius, but more so opportunity and timing.
Anyone can pick-up a Michael Turner when LT goes down in years past, it doesn't take genius.

If Charlie Fry isn't suddenly traded after game one last year Edwards would have same value as Donnie Avery does now. Everyone gets lucky sometime.

I call bs on this one...this is the same MantaRay who once said in the fantasy hockey league that the biggest part of winning is mid-round drafting (which I agree with btw)?

Ironically it's in the hockey league where you're competitive but your fantasy football record (at least here) has been lousy every year :P

Aside from that my middle rounds were better than most (e.g Rivers was highly criticized when I picked him, but is the #1 ranked QB in the league) the only potential mistake I made in the draft was my gamble on the Jets in utilizing their most explosive back properly- Leon Washington (which is why they should be 0-3).


Rivers was criticized because you had Brady and it was way too early to pick a backup QB when you still had question marks at other positions. How was anyone supposed to know Brady would be done for the season in Week 1? Rivers would have wasted away on your bench if not for luck.

And if you were Kreskin and foresaw his injury then you shouldn't have picked him third to begin with. Plus Rivers' stats are better than anticipated partly because of LT's own injury.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

5th place out of of 12 isn't considered lousy to my knowledge. Not Great, but not lousy.

I picked Rivers because Brady hadn't taken a snap in all of pre-season and I don't trust the PATS with injury information. Depending on Brady's weekly match-up, I could have played Rivers at LEAST against the Jets, Raiders twice, Denver twice and the Chiefs twice.

Hockey you use every player, much different that several offensive players and a D per week.

Burress, Giants working towards settlement

Posted: September 25th, 2008 | Adam Schefter | Tags: New York Giants, Plaxico Burress

New York wasted no time suspending Giants Plaxico Burress, and the lawyers wasted no time trying to get it resolved before it goes to an arbitrator.

One day after the Giants suspended Burress for one game against Seattle, lawyers for the NFL Players Association started talking to the the NFL lawyers about a possible grievance.

But before it goes to the arbitrator under the CBA grievance procedures, there could be a settlement between the NFL and NFLPA lawyers. Despite several hours of discussion Thursday afternoon, no settlement had been reached for now.

Talks are expected to continue Friday, with all sides wanting to reach a resolution as quickly as possible. But no resolution Thursday so far. Now the sides will hope for one Friday.



Cowboys have a HORRIBLE record against the NFC east since 2004.

No team looks any better than the Cowboys. But Dallas is going to have to figure out how to conquer its division, starting Sunday with Washington. Since 2004, the Cowboys are just 12-13 vs. the NFC East. Against non-division opponents during the same time span, the Cowboys are a much-more impressive 28-14.

Its good that Burress's agent want his commission money, but I don't think that the League will reverse the decision to fine Burress or lift the suspension until they review the domestic abuse calls from Burress wife.

Goodell is still cracking down on players and their behavior.
