Fantasy Faux Pas Monday: All’s not Wells

The fantasy regular season is nearly finished, which means every lineup decision is magnified. It also means that this week’s Fantasy Faux Pas Monday comes with an extra dose of vinegar for those on the wrong end of a fantasy screw-up. Take @garrett_ross, for instance.

traded Beanie Wells last week, and wouldn’t you know he breaks out for 200+ yards and a TD!

Had you not made that deal, Wells probably would have ended the day with 37 yards and a fumble. I guess the rest of us should thank you, but we try not to kick people when they’re down.

Speaking of kicking, @SteelFriz10 is probably kicking himself. If not, he probably knows someone who could do the job for him.

Have started Sebastian Janikowski every week this season, but I decided to BENCH him this week…

Often, a faux pas is of the Chumbawamba variety — one-hit wonders. And after blowing up last week, Kevin Smith┬áset fantasy owners like @RayRay2884 up for a little Week 12 Tubthumping.

lost fred jackson last week, picked up kevin smith this week and started him over beanie wells

He wasn’t alone, though. @GOPackersGJ85 sees your faux pas and raises you #shanahanigans.

picked up Kevin Smith who gets hurt and dropped Roy Helu due to #Shanahanigans

Even the best teams in your league aren’t immune to the occasional faux pas, as @NicholasEstela reminded us.

Made a terrible choice by Starting Mike Wallace over Welker, Lost by 2 Points and now I will be 11 – 1

That’s sorta like having the biggest house on the block and complaining that you have a crack in your driveway. Then again, the bad ballgame bug doesn’t discriminate. Finally, this week’s big winner (loser?) is @Anew26, who combined most of this week’s mistakes into one big faux pas.

WORST! Sat Wells & Lloyd, Started AJ, Julio Jones, & Mike Wallace!

It’s pretty bad, but if it makes you feel better, it’s not the worst we’ve seen this year. What should definitely make you feel better is knowing it’s a new week. Here’s to not stubbing our toes.
