Fantasy Faux Pas Monday: Vick, Gore, Bryant pull fast ones

Monday morning is a harsh reality for many of us. It’s the end of the weekend and the start of the work/school week. It’s also the day when many of us are kicking ourselves about the foolish decisions we made that might have cost us a fantasy football victory. Just know that whatever bonehead move you pulled on Sunday, you probably weren’t alone. That’s why we’ve instituted “Fantasy Faux Pas Mondays”.

Every week on the @NFLFantasy Twitter account, we’ll ask for the moves you wish you could have a do-over for. Just remember to add the #FantasyFauxPasMonday hashtag when weighing in and we’ll post some of the best in the blog every week.

Dez Bryant was iffy all week with a thigh injury that had him listed as questionable on the injury report. But after snagging a pair of touchdowns, it was questionable as to how anyone could ever had doubted him. @HardlyClerkin summed it up pretty well…

Not starting Dez Bryant. Injured, sure you are.

Frank Gore’s status was even more precarious than Bryant’s, with rumors circulating that Kendall Hunter was going to get the start for San Francisco. Gore not only played, but posted his best game of the season, rushing for 127 yards and a touchdown. @codyhuey, we feel your pain.

starting kendall hunter over frank gore, bad ankle my a–!
But maybe the biggest head fake belonged to Michael Vick, who went from possibly being out for multiple weeks to starting against the 49ers. If you were scared off by the potential of a major Vick implosion, we forgive you. Unfortunately, the fantasy scoreboard won’t. That’s something that @iamjustdanny now knows all too well.
easy… I messed up royally by benching vick, decker and gore!!!
But the Sunday screw-ups weren’t limited to those three. Here are a few more of your Monday morning misgivings.
yeah, that whole sitting the questionable wells for the #1 RB tim hightower. (Thanks Mike bleeping Shanahan) – @patmaughan
dropping Eric Decker. @mandaswanson
sitting cam newton for matt schaub :’(@moss022
If that was us, @moss022, we’d cry too. The good news is that it’s a new week with a chance for us to make up for our past mistakes. Here’s to not stubbing our toes next week.
