Social (Fantasy) Network: The Big Letdown

I’m fairly certain that someone somewhere has told you that life is full of disappointments.

You probably wanted to punch that person square in the face. Mostly because you were in the midst of swallowing the bitter pill you’d been handed. But also because they are correct. Sometimes life sucks. More often, fantasy football sucks.

Chances are you ran into that somewhere along the line in Week 1. You drafted  your team with the best strategy, read all the practice reports and checked projections everywhere you could find them.

And then Maurice Jones-Drew scored 4.50 fantasy points. What’s a fantasy owner to do?

Well, for one, they can log into the Social (Fantasy) Network and vent about the players who most let them down in the opening week of the fantasy football season. Enough jibber-jabber, let the kvetching begin!

Yep. That was a pretty easy winner. As Trinidad James once said … don’t believe me? Just watch.

And there were plenty more where those came from. But David Wilson wasn’t the only running back who laid an egg for fantasy owners this week. In fact, right behind the Wilson owners came those who fell prey to #Belitricks.

Overall, running backs earned a lot of the bad type of recognition from fantasy owners, including everyone’s favorite preseason sleeper.

From under the radar to under the bus. How quickly things change.

Yeah, to use Foster’s own words, that was pretty anti-awesome.

1) You were counting on a defense?

2) You were counting on the Packers defense?

3) You were counting on the Packers defense against San Francisco? Did you not watch the playoffs? That one’s on you, dude.

Uh, okay. That one’s on us. Sorry, dude. See, what had happened was…

Nobody wants a Dez in the box!

The last word goes to Eduardo, whose lineup takes the cake for Week 1. Mmmmm, cake.

I’m not really sure what’s worse — having Peyton Manning or Jeff Tuel on your bench? You earned that loss, my friend.

Who else let you down in Week 1? If we didn’t get to it, hit us up in the comment section. Just get it all about before Sunday. Be on the lookout for next week’s #SocialFantasy question. In the meantime … happy Week 2 everybody!
