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