Fantasy Faux Pas Monday: Hittin’ the Decker

You studied all week long, checked the matchups, examined the injury reports, scrutinized the weather reports … then decided to start LeGarrette Blount. Now you’re looking at a fantasy loss and wishing you had a chance to do it all over again. Well, we can’t turn back time, but we can allow you a chance to commiserate with fellow fantasy faux pas-ers.

And it seems like quite a few of you were burned by Eric Decker or, more accurately, by the seeming cloak of invisibility that prevented Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow from seeing Decker all day. It’s a pain that @adam_hart16 knows all too well.

picked up E. Decker to replace D. Branch since he’s been invisible for 2 weeks, Decker: .6 points, Branch: 15+ points this week

Ben Roethlisberger didn’t too many people any favors. After hearing stories about his injured foot all week long, many owners decided to put Big Ben on the pine against the Titans. That foot must not have been too injured, because he kicked Tennessee’s butt. If only @Chargers204 had taken advantage of it.

start big Ben for 4 weeks instead of Sanchez, benched him finally cost me the win this week

On the list of coaches who hate your fantasy team, Bill Belichick is quickly moving up the charts — especially after pulling the ol’ switcheroo with his running backs this week. We’ll let @richardgraves1 tell you about it.

Dropping BenJarvis Green-Ellis, picking up and starting Stevan Ridley!

Of course, those weren’t the only ones. Here are a few more tales of fantasy woe.

sat victor cruz. Started decker and Jacoby jones……needless to say down by 36 – @ogsfaelog81

felt had to show loyalty to Josh Freeman after last week instead of bringing back Michael Vick – @clarkyboy72

And this week’s winner (loser?)…

Big Ben, Cruz and BJGE on the bench sheesh! – @wynnde13

Yikes! Well, as always…it’s a new week. Here’s to not stubbing our toes again.
