Oh **** yeah.


So, a ton of my RBs were out and/or on BYE so looking at the FA wire I picked up an old player who I lost faith on.....


Chris Johnson


Then I saw I needed a new WR.....


Randall Cobb


Dumped Baltimore because of their injuries and picked up....

Minnesota

So my line up was:

QB: Rodgers
RB: CJ
RB: Woodhead
WR: Harvin
WR: Hicks
WR: Cobb
TE: Pettigrew
K: Tucker
DEF: Minny


I was #4 in my league facing #1, at 'halftime' *After the 1 PM games* I was up 125.38 to 40.34

Happy dude is me. Currently the score is 129.88 to 72.54, he has 2 players playing on Monday night. (M. Bush, Chicago's D) vs. my 1 TE. I like my chances. My hope is that I can get to 130 pts.

ESPN league, I won 71-64 on a non-PPR format. The line is hilarious.

Basically, I was down 64-53 after the 1pm games, my opponent had a nice day from the Schaub-Daniels combo, Kyle Rudolph was shut out for me, and Vincent Jackson was single handedly keeping me in it. I had Brady, Wallace, and the Steelers D left, he had MJD only. MJD went down and I managed to win it.

The funny thing about this was, due to injuries and byes, we had 2 RBs each starting: He had MJD and LaGarrette Blount (left Pierre Thomas on the bench, thankfully), and I had DeAngelo Williams (2 carries), and Phillip Tanner. 3 points from Tanner were the only RB points scored in our matchup.

Picked up Janikowski this week with Prater on the bye. With his 14 points I actually have a chance at winning. Im 22 points up but my opposition has Leshoure and Marshall playing tonight.

Up 3.6 points against Jason Hanson, if the Bears can hold the Lions to only 3 TDs and no FGs or one short FG, I win.

Somehow scored 97 this week with 0 from both Lloyd and Rudolph. Should win unless Calvin gets more than 32 tonight.

Didn't happen to me but this year someone in my league beat his opponent playing only Eli Manning, Jamal Charles, and A.J. Green.

Not really a 'story', but something I find really funny about the 2 leagues I'm in.

League 1

- 1st of 10 in points for, and nobody's really close
- Stacked team (M. Ryan, Foster, Charles, AJ. Green, Cruz, etc.)
- 3-4 record, 6th place


League 2

- 10th of 10 in points for by a wide margin
- have been starting s*** for pretty much the entire season
- 4-2-1, 4th place

Funny how Fantasy Football works sometimes.

Coming into tonight, 1 of my teams had under 18 pts.

Ponder - never threw the ball
Richardson - ****
McFadden - average
Graham - injured
Pitta off waivers in for him - ****
Panthers - ****

CJ, Marshall, and Gould in play, but it doesn't matter

To add to this, I ended up winning by 1.8 points, luckily Leshoure had a fumble which is -2 points. Even with Vernon Davis and Trent Richardson getting me less than 2 points combined, I squeaked it out and now I am #1 at 5-2.

Am 6-2 and drafted Cam Newton and MJD in the 2nd and 3rd rounds respectively. Got Peyton Manning and Vjax in the 8th and 9th rounds respectively. Anyone else in a great position and feeling like there season is basically over?

Last week won by a 0,1 point margin. When the corrected stats came out, a forced fumble was taken off of my Julius Peppers and I ended up losing by 3,9 points. I KNEW IT WOULD HAPPEN!!!

So did Danny Woodhead jump off a cliff or something? 0 pts tonight. Even if he got 5 or 6 it would help me. Within 13 pts here and Ray Rice to play tonight.

I'm cursed this season, I'm convinced.

Was 4-6 going into this week, one more loss and I'm done for playoffs. Needed an RB as I only had one healthy back (Reggie Bush though, so may as well have been hurt), so I traded Tom Brady and Demarco Murray for Matt Ryan and Ryan Mathews. Murray is a better back but I needed points this week. Mathews got me 7, which isn't great but better than 0. Matt Ryan had actually outperformed Brady this year, until his 2 point performance yesterday, knocking me out of the playoffs (Miller and Wallace didn't help either though).

Made some bad calls and had some bad things happened to me:

-Played ATL DEF (12 points) over NE DEF (27 points).
-Played Newton (18 points) over Freeman (22 points).
-McGahee injured in the 2nd quarter

So I was losing by 2 points going into the PIT/BAL game last night. I had Vernon Davis left, opposition had Mike Wallace, Matt Forte and CHI DEF left to play. So suffice to say I thought I was done. Davis gets me 14 point tonight while Forte, Wallace and CHI DEF get my opposition just over 8 points. So I ended up winning this week by 4 points.

Had a 19.5 point lead going into tonight, and my opponent had the Niners D. We were both 7W 3L.

It was soulcrushingly painful to watch Jason Campbell get served up like a virgin sacrifice. Begging for run plays, for SF to burn clock.

That end zone safety and the Campbell fumble batted out of bounds were absolutely terrifying.

It was a 2.5 hour slasher flick, but I escaped with a 3.5 point victory. Barely.

Not cool, Chicago. Not. Cool.

My bench outscored my starters this week...and I still won.

That's what happens when you leave Schaub on the sidelines and he goes off while Matt Ryan throws 5 INTs. Of course, nobody expected that.

In my 16 team league I'm 5-6 and with a win this week and a loss by this other guy I can win my division and get a BYE.

I'm 2nd in my league and 8-3, one win away from clinching a playoff spot.
