Fantasy Football!
« on: November 04, 2015, 08:23:39 AM »
Who else does Fantasy Football?

I'm having a lot of fun with it this year.  I even got Josi and my mom into one of my leagues.  I thought it would be cool to give folks a chance to share their teams and how they're doing in their own leagues this year now that we're going into week 9.

Here's my team for League 1 set for week 9.

Record: 5-3 (4th Place in a 12 Manager League, coming off a loss in week 8)

QB: Matt Ryan (ATL)
WR: Odell Beckham Jr. (NYG)
WR: Allen Hurns (JAX)
RB: Mark Ingram (NO)
RB: Doug Martin (TB)
TE: Vernon Davis (DEN)
W/T: Stevie Johnson (SD)
K: Blair Walsh (MIN)
DEF: SanDiego

BN: WR - James Jones (GB)
BN: QB - Russell Wilson (SEA)
BN: RB - Chris Johnson (ARI)
BN: K - Steven Hauschka (SEA)
BN: DEF - Seattle

I just picked up Stevie Johnson to replace Steve Smith Sr., who I had to drop because of his season ending IR.  I picked up Walsh for one week to fill in for Hauschka, who's my main kicker on a bye this week.  Vernon Davis catching passes from Peyton Manning sounds intriguing enough to take a chance on picking him up as my primary tight end, a spot that's been a real weakness of this team all season.

Here's my team in the 8 manager league that Josi, my mom and a smattering of friends and acquaintances are in.

Record: 8-0 (1st Place in an 8 Manager League)

QB: Aaron Rodgers (GB)
WR: Antonio Brown (PIT)
WR: Julio Jones (ATL)
WR: Amari Cooper (OAK)
RB: Todd Gurley (SL)
RB: Devonta Freeman (ATL)
TE: Gary Barnidge (CLE)
W/R/T: Lamar Miller (MIA)
K: Blair Walsh (MIN)
DEF: Buffalo

BN: TE - Antonio Gates (SD)
BN: WR - Travis Benjamin (CLE)
BN: RB - DeAngelo Williams (PIT)
BN: K - Steven Hauschka (SEA)
BN: DEF - Seattle

I'm actually a little embarrassed about this team.  I know it's just 8 managers in the league, but how I managed to walk away with Aaron Rodgers as my QB, the two best wideouts in the draft (Brown and Jones) and the two best running backs this season (Gurley and Freeman), leaving me to wonder whether to play Lamar Miller or DeAngelo Williams... Travis Benjamin or Amari Cooper.  Just wow.  I don't even have TE as a weakness when I have both Barnidge and Gates, both of whom I managed to pick up off waivers.  I'm not one to pat myself on the back, I'm really not... but man, the team I have mostly lucked into building is just not fair.  It's not like the managers other than my mom and Josi are new to fantasy either.  I've just managed to stay on top of the up and comers and snagged good players off the waiver wire (though what Julio Jones was doing at number 7 in the 3rd round I have no idea).

I'd love to see everyone's teams!

I finally lost in the second league.  10-1.

I was projected for 135 points. I got 83.  Sadly my opponent got 84.  >.<

Freeman's injury that week -really- hurt me.

What teams are those?  I can tell you if there's any hope for them in the next few years since I pay a lot of attention t nfl news and stats for all the teams.

There is not.

University of Texas might come around in a couple years.  College can change drastically from year to year.

I think I shot myself in the foot this week. Will get my current team now. This is my very first time doing FF. So I'm so inexperienced since all I did was follow the Patriots.

Damn you James Jones for dropping every pass and getting me shit points...

I'm currently 5-6 in my league so not bad for a newb...sigh.

*waves to VMS*

Call me weird, but I'll be really happy even if Carolina goes 15-1, as long as they lose one.  I don't want anyone breaking the Dolphins' perfect season.

I picked up Ben Roethlisberger a couple weeks back but I'm starting Aaron Rodgers this week so I have a reason to watch tonight's game.  We'll see If that bites me in the rear in the end.

Rogers isn't doing what he is suppose to!

Cobbs is not getting any receptions! WTF! I need to win this game to get into the playoffs...wah.

And I want to dolphins to suck it! so if I need to route for the Panthers if the Patriots don't make it I will!! However, we were totally cheated out of that win sunday night. I mean really...if you see the cover of the SI magazine you could clearly see a choke hold on Easley that was NEVER called!

I'm not a current Dolphins fan, but I have mad respect for the 70s and 80s eras of the team.  Marino was awesome back in the day.

Apologies though... I have no sympathy for a 10-1 team when mine is 6-5.   :P

Yeah, they're doing a stellar job of obtaining a much worse 2016 first round draft pick than the number one overall I thought they'd earn earlier this season.

Jordy Nelson can not be the only reason that team isn't doing well...much like Romo is to the Cowboys...wow.

Posting to put this on my radar.  I have a team.  Was so pissed last week.  I was winning up until the moment Baltimore defense decided they needed more points :(

I have the Jets right now.  I should have kept Carolina.  Defense I'd kinda a week to week things.

And wtf Lacy again right?
