Yeah he killed me as well. And of course my opponent has the Steelers D. 25 points, its his highest point player for him so far.

The first place team in my league just suffered a trememdous upset in a terrible 74 point effort and goes to 9-5.

I Favred all over my opponent's face yesterday and offered him a towel. Vick, Garcon, Welker, MJD, Witten and the Patriots D all decided to show up at once and my team put up 134 points, giving me a regular season record of 9-5 and, as the points leader, I now move into the #1 spot.

That's not so bad for a team that started out 1-5...

Here is a metaphor on what happened to my fantasy football league season yesterday:



The roof caved in on me.

This is what happens when you a) bench Tom Brady and b) have Darren McFadden start against you. These two conditions applied in two separate leagues. The league in which McFadden started against me I was in first place wire to wire, and a sixth seed took me down. My opponent also had Chris Johnson, and Jason Witten. In contrast, I benched Pierre Garcon in favor of Brandon Lloyd (can anyone blame me).

I am actually not out, mathematically, but down 60+ points, with Foster, Peterson and Eli Manning tonight.

Who did you bench brady for? Im guessing he will be ranked #1 next year in fantasy football QB rankings. I have a team in a yahoo league with the team name being Tom Brady is #1 and half of my players are patriots. Needless to say im in 2nd place I even start woodhead on a weekly basis.

If I told you who I benched Brady for, I would bring shame upon myself. I over-thought it, as 3 years ago, my opponent started Brady against the Jets in a snowstorm, and I ended up winning that semi-final game. I considered history, plus the weather, and I benched him.

That said, I am still up by 3 points, but have the Giants Defense against me tonight. I still have Foster and Rackers, so I can actually win this game in spite of benching Brady (oh yeah, and Deion Branch).
