7 leagues? Damn, I'm in 4 and thinking about cutting back for next year. Gets to the point where I'm always playing against my own players and just makes it less entertaining to follow on Sundays.

This is why I only do 2 leagues. End up with too many conflicting match ups.

I did 4 this year. I'll only be doing 2 next year. Too time consuming and too much rooting for/against my players. I'll be on the playoffs in 3 of the 4.

I'm 5th in one league, 6th in the other...Eli killed me in my other league. Need to win out the next 2 weeks to have a shot at the playoffs.

I've only got two. One of which I forgot existed for pretty much all of the season.

Yeah, I had been pretty consistent with 2 for 5-6 years. Started a new 1 this year that will probably last a long time, and then figured, well, what's 1 more gonna hurt? and joined this one.

Guy in my other league picked up the Redskins D, lol. I held onto the Ravens from last week. They did a hell of a job, got a TD, bunch of turnovers, a couple sacks. I love them against the Steelers with Leftwich and possibly no Antonio Brown. I'm keeping the Packers on the bench, even coming off the bye. I'm also considering carrying the both of them the rest of the year and playing matchups.

Skins might end up being a decent play this week against a rookie quarterback.

Managed to nab Colston for Newton at the trade deadline. My buddy had Vick and Roethelisberger as his qb's with Foles, Wheedon and Bradford as the best guys available.

Colston moves into my #2 WR slot and bumps VJax into my #3. Unfortunately Harvin is on a bye this week. Hartline or Bowe as your flex this week? Leaning Hartline.

I'd take Bowe. He and Cassel are due to have a better game

Woah, just realized I have Drew Brees going against Carson Palmer in our league and have Carson Palmer going against Drew Brees in my other league. Weird.

He's in a playoff spot and everyone chasing him snapped up all the halfway decent QB options on waiver day. He originally wanted to just give up Dez Bryant but when he saw that everyone was trying to screw him into having a garbage QB he got desperate.

Hartline. Actually gained a point on that play, 17 yards and a catch brings him from 5 to 22 and the second catch means he's got 4 minus 2 for the fumble.

Still, sinking feeling that Bowe is gonna explode this week. Have believed in him all year, and he's due for a good game.

irrational thinking its a one way ticket to loser town. nobody is due for anything. the reason Bowe has sucked is because the chiefs and Cassel are awful and he's a guy who's known to give lax effort

Yeah, Donald Jones was not a good play.

That's the thing with the Thursday games that I really like/really hate at the same time. It forces you to make a decision early. I've got Jordy Nelson who's a tossup for Sunday at this point. Obviously if he plays I'm starting him. But if he doesn't and I didn't play Jones last night, I'd be stuck with Donnie Avery, and going in it looked like Jones may be the better option.

Oh well, you live and learn.

Well I'm down 10 already. I had Reggie Bush and he had CJ Spiller. Gotta dig myself out of that hole to maintain 1st place!

I did 7 because last year I did 2 leagues and was so damn obseesed over those 2 leagues that if I lost I just was pissed off the whole damn time.

This year I still get upset because of the stupid injuries and issues to Demarco Murray, Ryan Matthews, and Aaron Hernandez, but overall it has been much more enjoyable as I am not 100% banking on just 1-2 leagues... more chances to win (and ofcourse lose) but at least if 1-2 of my teams suck balls, I still feel good about the others if they have solid weeks...

that certainly happens playing in 7 leagues, but I did try and draft the same guys in a lot of my leagues...

so most of my teams have some type of combo of McCoy, Matthews, Murray, Bradshaw, Harvin, Colston, Demaryius Thomas, Texans D, Rudolph, Luck, etc...

so it does pop up sometimes, I planned on picking a lot of the same guys as I was high on many listed above...some have panned out great, others not so great...but it has minimized me playing against guys I need to do well in other leagues..
