    Credit where it's due...The Chargers are awesome on third down. Rivers made some awesome throws into tight coverage. And Gates made circus catches and flat out smacked down talk of his decline. The Chargers also have an annoyingly good game plan against the other top teams, and that is to dominate the time of posession game. 42minutes, in that heat, will be tough for anybody.

    And as a proud owner of Lynch in fantasy, I concur. Every carry he had went for good yardage...and he had 6 yard a pop!
    .

    Chargers were really good yesturday, Rivers has always been one of my favourite QBs and he had a nearly perfect game today and we just couldn't contain him. It was rather strange how we kept Chancellor on Gates when his man weakness is coverage and he clearly wasn't getting anywhere... It's a bit too often we get burned because of a seeming stubbornness to adapt halfway through the first half.

    Wonder why we didn't see more of Paul Richardson, the guy's great at slants and the like but seeing we had so little possession the fact it was so close does say some good things about us. Would have been a different game if we tackled better.

    And I don't mean this as a whinny excuse, we lost fair and square to the better team but surely there should be something against playing a game in 120 degrees at the peak of the day? I feel faint when it's 30 degrees let alone playing football in nearly 50 and if you have one heat related attack you're more likely to experience it in the future.

    I give up on Tampa. Fantasy team needs work too.
    Tampa should improve, but oh dear, what terrible luck to have Evans injured and then a ten-second run-off to end the game. Most teams would take a spike and around a 50yard field goal attempt, down two with less than 10 seconds left.

    I think it's a fair excuse though it must be said the Chargers did better in the heat. Early in the season, it's a real test of conditioning, I guess it's one of the 'perks' of home advantage, but with 42 minutes of possession, that Chargers offense will be fairly gassed as well, with a lot of substitutions required. Still, that heat's going to gas any defense.

    Lol I know that the QB is the most important player, the Seahawks won the superbowl last year and they stop every 20 seconds in play. That's about it

    They're on the wire in our league! I had the Cards though, they were pretty useful.

    Already won in one of my fantasy leagues... up by 46 in another, with only Riley Cooper to play for my opponent, and in the TSR league am down by 9 but he's finished and I have Reggie Wayne and Zach Ertz to play... this is gonna be close
    In my IDP league, I'm down by 25 points with just Reggie Wayne to play. Now...I can either hope that he has an amazing game against the Eagles to try and make the score respectable, at the cost of losing this matchup...or, I can hope that he flat out fails to do anything, to try and win this matchup, at the expense of losing the other one.

    To be honest, I thought the lineups locked in before the Thursday games, as it does that in my IDP league. (I saw your quick change, getting rid of Alshon Jeffrey before the game ) WHY DIDN'T I PLAY BRANDON MARSHALL!!! WHY?! ARGH!! 22 points down the drain...so annoying.

    Dammit. I was leading (just !!) until that 24 yard pass to Zach Ertz late inside the two minutes. I will be forever haunted by the fact that Brandon Marshall was on my bench. Haunted I say. Yes...you had other options on your bench as well.

    We go again, so they say. Congrats on the win.

    I went 1-1, in the one I lost having the 49ers D and Blair Walsh basically wrote me off, 1 point off kicker and defense combined is good for nothing!

    Oh wow. The Falcons absolutely d****d on the Bucs tonight. 56-zip until the fourth quarter. 56-14 Final.

    Glad I have Matt Ryan and Julio Jones together in one of my teams; Julio Jones in the TSR league and starting Matt Ryan in my IDP team. My faith has been repayed after Sunday!!Hope it will be enough, because it will be so tight now.

    That's ridiculous, I went away camping so I had no idea what had happened - good game though, and I think you'll bounce back!

    In my other league someone dropped Alshon Jeffery so I took him and Josh Gordon... in Week 11, provided everyone is fit, I'll have Nick Foles, Eddie Lacy, Jimmy Graham, Alfred Morris, Antonio Brown, Josh Gordon and Alshon Jeffery in my team, with Jay Cutler, Frank Gore and Percy Harvin on the bench :sogood:

    With Julio Jones firing...hopefully Very good game though.

    I'm annoyed by the way the Josh Gordon suspension was handled. I picked him up before the appeal and then dropped it when it was rejected (our IDP draft was mid august!!) but someone else picked him up before the new drug policy was announced.

    Dayum. Clemson failed in O/T

    Such a blown call in the Oregon @ Washington State game though. They missed that pass interference call.

    And to the experts on ESPN and the such, why Texas A&M over Alabama, in that top 4 ? 'Bama mean business.

    Both Alabama and the Aggies have had pretty easy starts, neither of them has stuttered much tbh. Both their schedules get tougher from here. 18th October is the big date really

    Is anyone else having to watch injury report with a very keen eye in order to set their fantasy starters or is it just me who is having a crisis?

    And after Manchester United the only thing that could improve this already hungover day is a win on my accumulators or the Jags somehow knocking Andrew 'Franchise QB despite not having done anything good' Luck and the Colts over at Everbank, how they might do that I have no idea but this weekend has been full of ridiculous things which have adversely affected me, it is frankly about time I got some luck.

    Bit unfair! He hasn't put up mega numbers (yet) but he's had a pretty shoddy team around him for the last two seasons and took them to the playoffs both years. I can see where you're coming from but he is easily franchise quality
