Fantasy Faux Pas Monday: Shanahanigans!

It’s that time again. Time to pay penance for your Sunday fantasy football sins with our weekly Fantasy Faux Pas blog. This week, many of you have joined us because you were led astray. Hoodwinked. Bamboozled. In short, you were the victim of Shanahanigans. For some people, it took the form of starting Tim Hightower like @PunchByeYa.

playing Tim Hightower. I could’ve left it blank and gotten the same amount of points.

For others, it meant going with Ryan Torain, like @MikeEfff

started ryan torain instead of ernest graham (becasuse you told us too!!) probably will cost me the win

Our bad. Seemed like a good idea at the time. Then again, it could have been worse. You could have been @onthenickel.

Determined not to get Shanahaned, I started Torain AND HIghtower. I got Shanahananahaned

Yes. Yes you did.

But not all fantasy fails originated in the D.C. Beltway. Strange things were afoot in the Midwest as well. Just ask @DodgerJunkie.

starting Peyton Hillis!!!! What a waste of a start! Let down of the week

As frustrating as that was, it might not have been as bad as fantasy owners like @MikeBfo20, who ran out of patience with Josh Freeman a little too soon.

I dropped Josh Freeman 2 weeks ago. The guy I’m playing got him off ww and he is +5 Thomas vs Greene MNF

Sometimes patience is a virtue. Although @gltorno might have been too virtuous for her own good.

I’ve left Victor Cruz on the bench the last 3 wks and finally started him this week. :(

Sad face, indeed. Yet for as bad as you think you have it, this week’s big winner (loser?) is @nsatterl and his Tales of Fantasy Woe.

losing to an opponent who started 2 players on bye. Thanks to felix jones, gresham, cruz, and MINN. D.\

Yeah, good luck living that one down in next year’s draft. All we can say is…next week is a new week. Here’s to not stubbing our toes again.
