It wasn’t a pretty week around the NFL. Byes, injuries and new quarterbacks conspired to create some sloppy action. And chances are, things were equally sloppy in your respective fantasy leagues. Just ask @MrSkolVikes28, who probably needs some Calamine lotion for his injury bug bites.
All three of my starting running backs were injured within the first 10 minutes of Sunday’s early games.
Then again, it could have been worse. You could have thrown some salt in that open wound, a la @lonesharkoy.
McFadden, Moss, Ben Watson, Graham & Wells all start. 5 injuries, while DeMarco M looked on from the bench
Aaah, the DeMarco Murray faux pas. It was a common one this week. Not playing him was tough enough. It was even worse when you didn’t know that your selected back was a late scratch (*cough* Marshawn Lynch *cough*). It’s a pain that @bjhawk4ku is acutely aware of.
I cut D. Murray for M. Lynch and started Lynch.
And of course, what’s a fantasy week without Shanahanigans? Just ask @McLooner.
Starting Ryan Torain
Of course, it wasn’t all about running backs this week. Plaxico Burress left more than a few fantasy owners muttering under their breath this week. @mrjackncoke was one of them.
dropped plaxico and picked up meachem on Sunday morning!
That’s a double ouch. Not only did he drop a guy who scored three touchdowns, but replaced him with the only Saint not to have a big game on Sunday night.
Still, it doesn’t beat someone whose entire squad was a fantasy faux pas. For that we turn to this week’s big winner (loser?), @JordanBBenedict.
my whole team! Cassel, mendenhal, Chris Johnson, Vincent Jackson, breaston, packers, torain, Dan bailey
Yeesh! You might want to stay away from sharp objects for the next few days. Just take comfort in the thought that this is a new week. Here’s to not stubbing our toes.
