All you needed was one win to make the playoffs. Just one good day and you’re into the dance, where anything can happen. And what luck! LeGarrette Blount is lining up against one of the worst run defenses in the NFL. Time to start making postseason plans after Blount gets you…19 yards on 11 carries.
A faux pas that keeps you out of the second season is one that is unmatched in the fantasy game. With that, we pour out a little Gatorade for those fallen owners who couldn’t be with us in the playoffs — owners like @allday849, whose demise came at the hands of the suddenly explosive Shonn Greene.
last minute sub. Benched shonn green and started L. Blount AND lost by 20…. No playoff for me.
Hey, at least you’re not alone. @twistajt feels your pain.
started Legarette Blount and will miss the playoffs by 3 points.
That’s a pain that will stay with you — sorta like when your best players go bad at the wrong time. Always starting your studs is good advice. Except when it’s not. Just ask @curran_brian.
Pierre Garcon and Percy Harvin benched, Larry Fitzgerald starting.
Dropped Pierre Garçon, having not produced for several weeks.
Join the club. But what’s worse, sending a #KABOOM’er to the waiver wire or watching him blow up on your bench? @davidsa94 might have answer to that one.
I let Robert Meachem on the bench, started Anquan Boldin, and lost by 3. Now I’ll miss playoffs.
Those are the decisions that leave you filled with regret. Much like the decision @skyler182 made this week.
No one will top this…started Jets D/St over Steelers D/St. If I had started Pitts defense…I would have won by 0.08 points
No one will top that, eh? We beg to differ. Presenting this week’s big winner (loser?), @Grimmbourne!
For single offenses none can top this, benched Cam Newton started Caleb Hanie!
We kinda hope you’re making this up just to get attention. If so, bravo sir, your plan worked. If not, uh… what?
Normally, this is when we tell you that this week is a new week. But for some of you, that means nothing. For you, we tip our cap and let you know that you’re on the clock for next year’s draft. For the rest of us, here’s to not stubbing our toes in the playoffs.
