In the Wheel of Misfortune that is the late season waiver wire in fantasy football, it was bound to happen that an unsung free agent would shock the world (or at least the fantasy football world) for a week. Congratulations, Kevin Smith, you were this week’s chief source of Fantasy Faux Pas Monday frustrations. And in the role of Pat Sajak, @ExtraMannish317, tell ’em what they’ve won.
Started Maurice Morris over Daniel Thomas and/or Mike Williams and lost by ONE POINT!!!
Unfortunately here on Fantasy Faux Pas Monday, the only parting gifts we give out are shame, frustration and regret. Fortunately, we have enough for everyone, including you, @mbath01.
started Maurice Morris and Mario Manningham over Kevin Smith and Torrey Smith 😦
Ah yes, those tricky wide receivers. It’s an easy trap to fall into. For instance, Torrey Smith rope-a-doped more than a few fantasy owners in Week 11. Like @ewolfe83…
switching Torrey Smith for Stevie Johnson then switching it back again at the last second
Starting Denarius Moore over Torrey Smith cuz i decided to switch them 5 mins before the game started
After a big game in Week 10, Moore punk’d more owners than Ashton Kutcher. In his best Admiral Ackbar impersonation, Adam Rank warns fantasy enthusiasts about the one-week wonders. Adam, those are things that should have been brought to our attention yesterday.
And because we do it every week, we present @naes422 with this week’s #shanahanigans.
having Torain and Helu on my team because I just don’t know! They were both bad Sunday!
Finally, we always like to include our big loser of the week, but this tweet came across our desktop and we had to include it in this week’s post. From @ThatboiStubbs, we present what could be the Fantasy Faux Pas of the Year.
this takes the cake.. Trading Aaron Rodgers at the begging of the season for Chris Johnson
Okay, so no one knew how bad Johnson would be this year. Nor did anyone expect Rodgers to be super-human this year. None of that eases the pain of watching A-Rod put up 30 points almost every week while CJ struggles to pick up 30 yards. We truly weep for your fantasy fail.
Enough sadness for one week. This week is a new one. Here’s to not stubbing our toes.
