    The chase down is going to be challenging.

    The stack finally pays off and I take the lead! Jameis Winston - Mike Evans... 2 point deficit into 10 point lead.

    KC Defense has 35.00 points. Is that the most ever for a D... or anyone for that matter? Ryan Fitzpatrick has committed football suicide today.

    My defence despite putting up 26 points was somehow outscored.

    I have just been having an early look at the waiver wire for our league. Two out of the top three scoring available WR/RB's this week are players i have dropped previously. I also dropped the number four scoring RB earlier in the week. Maybe i have been tinkering a bit too much...

    This is doubly depressing as a Jets fan

    I think this is true. I also think your start/sits are exceptionally brave in places. I love hipster football but in fantasy the core of a winning roster is blue chip players.

    AML, at least you're not a Jags or Bucs fan. Both mine and DT's frustrations have been well documented in the other thread. 6 INTs is some Madden craziness though, literally a career worst performance for Fitz.*Jim Hardy threw 8 in 1950 but that's basically a million years ago. Fitz got PFF's worst QB grade ever which considering they've graded 2717 games is fairly spectacular. 5 of the top 10 come from 2015 and oldest of them is in 2011 though so the pass happy nature of the league may not have helped.*

    Because Fitzpatrick is bad apart from in very specific circumstances where he plays with the lead, a strong running/screen game, time in the pocket and elite receivers. He looked like he was trying to be Jay Cutler and failing. Doesn't that just say it all?

    I know you guys don't care but in spite of being 0-3 in our league I am psyched because in my other league beat our cheating commissioner. What makes the victory sweeter is that he has Deangelo Williams and I have Laveon Bell, so for the rest of the season I will gain a top tier RB and he will lose one.

    I love that you beat that guy. He sounds like a dick. And fantasy isn't the real NFL so you can still make the playoffs. I like my 3-0 start but I have to consider myself lucky to be in that position.

    Ahh, but i am a Jags fan, think my post in the other thread about going to the game in London next week and getting a new Jags hat got swallowed with the (justified) pity party that was going on. As this is my first season of FF i got caught up in the hype a bit too much of fringe players

    I always happy to hear about other leagues. Good job beating the commissioner, just be careful he doesn't change the rules on you again.

    In my secondary league i need Matt Ryan and Brandon Cooks to outscore Freeman by 30 points to keep my winning record going

    I did see that actually, it's been a tumultuous first 3 weeks. I'm so bored of the GusBus right now. I really want the colour rush jersey but until Bortles stops regressing as a QB I don't want his name on the back. He might be the backup when the next head coach comes in if he doesn't get his game straightened out.

    Week 15 - top 4 overall into championship playoff, next 4 into consolation playoff, bottom two eliminated.

    Has anyone noticed that everyone in the league won the "unreal combinations trophy" this week, even those without two people on the same team

    Very odd. I'm just pleased I didn't win the hungriest bench award for the third week running. It's such an indictment of your starting lineup decisions.

    Looks like they have fixed it now. I won the hungriest bench for failing to start Marvin Jones on the week he trebled is previous scores

    Oops. I'd honestly just like to have a successful waiver request this week. I'm 3/3 on denials so far and it means injuries are killing the depth I built into my draft.
