    Tell me Matt Asiata is appreciably better than Latavius Murray. 'Tis but a fluke.

    • For Whom Odell Tolls would be 30-25 if they played every team every week.

    Have one guy who is 4-1 in my league at 29-26 overall, and another guy who is 2-3 at 38-17 overall.

    Fantasy is a cruel mistress.

    At least 2-3 guy should have a good team and isn't in an awful spot to qualify for playoffs, he should be alright

    On the other hand...

    This year has been pretty average for me actually. Four leagues, with records of 4-1, 3-2, 3-2, and 3-1-1. My current placement in those leagues is pretty much spot on with how my team has performed, so I haven't been especially lucky or unlucky. Only injury bugs that have bitten me were ty Montgomery in three leagues, Chris Carson in two, and odb in one, which in the grand scheme is manageable. It's only week 6 though, so a lot can happen. I don't see anyone clearly running away with the title, so playoff spots are all very much up for grabs.

    fucking Diggs and Julio are going to be the death of me.

    how can i sit them?

    i can't cut them, and there's nothing on the wire anyway.

    i have Alshon on the bench but he's been a flop this year too.

    Hyde can't be trusted anymore either.

    i did grab Gallman, Aaron Jones and Breiman, but i don't have the nuts to play any of them yet.

    Julio will bounce back, diggs I never would have trusted in the first place because brad Samford. I'd play Jeffery given how the eagles have picked up.

    I think it's a common theme in league A: nobody has running backs, aside from whoever American Dream is cause he's loaded. Ajayi and Mixon have done shit all for me, here's to AP actually doing something in Arizona.

    I'm cool with my RB corps, but I want a good #2 instead of a bunch of mediocre ones.

    nevermind 1-1ed sanders with CJA

    until zeke gets suspended mid-season still and then I'm gonna be like "fuck"

    Once tymont is back I'll be good at rb. Snagging dougie Martin appears, for the moment, to have been a smart move. We'll see though.

    Mr. E, I believe I heard Crowell is currently a free agent.

    Well I guess I'm glad my waiver pick up didn't go through in dynasty? The outcome is that I wasn't forced to drop McFadden who has been rotting on my bench all season. My other rbs consist of trashaiah Crowell (2nd round yaaaaay) Cohen, Riddick Burkhead and that McKissic dude from Seattle. I can now start rooting for the Dallas oline even though I detest the boys

    Considering for once I didn't start 1-4, I kinda hope he just serves it now and comes back in time for fantasy playoffs.

    also that fuckin blatantly incorrect goalline call resulted in an eight-point swing taking my Newton rushing TD off the board and turning it into a passing TD to my opponent's McCaf thanks refs

    That's nice that Rodgers always dies the years I draft him on one of my teams

    Are any of the the Packers WRs worth anything without Rodgers? I swear the injuries are more frequent and worse every year

    I mean Adams scored today, but it's a very clear downgrade ROS for everybody, even TyMont. I'd value Jordy as a borderline WR1/2, Adams as a boom/bust WR3, Cobb as a bye week desperation filler, and Bennett as unuseable (not that he was useable anyway) for as long as Rodgers is out
