    I'm in a real pickle both this week and next. I have a number of players who will be having bye weeks both weekends, so the only way to cover my roster would be to dump players I want to hold onto. I've been weighing my options, and I think I'm going to take a huge gamble on the season by basically playing shorthanded the next two weeks, and hoping I can finish strong enough to make it into the playoffs with the team I'd like to have that I think can give me the best chance to win. I really hate to do this, and it could backfire spectacularly, but I think it's in my long term best interest if things break my way. I'd love to finish in first, but the only thing that matters is getting into the playoffs, so I'm trying to think season-long. My only chance of winning this week and next are if you guys have a couple of players who absolutely tank and I have a couple of players who just absolutely blow up their scores. I'm not expecting much.

    I don’t know.

    I released someone for a last second addition.

    It will be interesting to see it play out.

    You're still in a good position to win this week, and if you do, you could still make a push for the playoffs.

    So...

    Do you hate all reptiles or just me?

    40+ points?

    There isn’t a mercy rule?

    Oh mercy me!

    I didn't get to see any of it. I woke up for work last night and looked at the matchup and Fish was projected to win, so I assumed her players that were playing last night were going to seal it up for her. Then I checked on my lunch break and couldn't believe what the score was. In all my years of fantasy football I've never seen that close of a score.

    I've only seen one that was closer, and that's when she beat me by .10 (one f'ing yard!) a few weeks ago.

    Looks like the fantasy football gods decided to follow up my most narrow of wins last week with a no doubt epic beatdown. I'll be digging Ransom's boot out of my behind for the rest of the week!

    Every week i got guys who get ejected or hurt..almost every week. Worst fantasy year in history for me. Good luck to the rest of you though.

    That’s how I felt last week when cross beat me by 40+.

    And the time before when he beat me by 40.

    I’ll flame out in the first round....against cross.

    I’m rootin for Ginny now.
