Halloween came a day early for fantasy football owners. And with guys like Titus Young, Laurent Robinson and Donald Brown all finding the end zone, there were more tricks than treats on Sunday. With a lineup like that, it should make for a very diverse Fantasy Faux Pas Monday.
Speaking of shocking surprises, Reggie Bush with a 100-yard rushing game? Since they come around less frequently than presidential elections, it hurts when you miss one. It’s a pain what @ssjnimma woke up to this morning.
doing a last minute swap for my flex spot benching Reggie Bush for henderson
Mark it down, if Bush can last another five years in this league, you’ll be able to catch 100-yard game No. 3. Triple-digit rushing efforts are a little more common from Steven Jackson, but with no Sam Bradford and playing against the previously red-hot Saints, it wasn’t supposed to happen this week. Right? At least that’s what @Edizzle725 (and plenty others) thought.
Traded Steven Jackson prior to this week for lack of production
Sometimes, you just out-think yourself. Which is probably the best way to explain @foilking‘s faux pas.
Benched both Vick and Bills D. D:
Yep, we’d want to cry too. Of course, what’s a fantasy football week without some Redskins regrets? This week’s comes from @MorgannHensonn.
Ryan Torain. Again.
By the way, just when you thought it was safe to start a Redskins running back, Tashard Choice lands in Washington. Long live Shanahanigans!
Finally, not every fantasy faux pas comes from a poor player performance. Sometimes it’s operator error, which brings us to this week’s big winner (loser?) @Might_Be_Nick who undoubtedly would love a do-over for this gaffe.
picked up Atl Def to cover GB on the Bye Week! I realized it at 9 last night!
Cue The Price Is Right fail horn. And if you’re still feeling bitter, feel free to detail your faux pas in the comments section. But don’t worry, things get better. As we say here, it’s a new week. Here’s to not stubbing our toes.
