    Heard you were talking **** about me :unimpressed:

    Nah, to be fair, my team's a lot better than my record suggests. I've lost two match-ups by leaving players on bye weeks in that I would have won otherwise.

    I've had rotten luck with injuries too. Morris, Charles, Green, DJax and Davis have all had multiple weeks out.
    That is pretty gutting. If my waiver claims don't come off though you are probably going to win.

    It's an 8-team league - there are loads of good 1-week options on waivers.

    Maybe we should all pick a team consisting of players who are currently on waivers, and see how they compare to our actual teams this week.

    I'm sorted now, the team is obviously weaker than it usually is but you're right with pickups like Romo and OBJ available after the waiver deadline and players like Ingram available before it I've filled my holes pretty well

    Damn! I didn't have a chance at 7. I also had to wire Cutler and Antone Smith in order to fill my starting lineup so I guess you'll be enjoying one or both of them next week

    Nope, I already have Flacco as backup for Rivers, should put up some decent numbers against the Titans.

    I got who I wanted, although it hurts to get rid of Prater. To be honest...you should be safe with both of them on the wire. If someone wants to pick them up and fill clog up a roster spot, when they are on a bye week, that's their prerogative, and it will leave better options on the table. Heck, if Dalton is still Cutler should be good for about 15-20points a game in Fantasy....but he hasn't put up that sort of numbers since the falcons game. Antone Smith has limited fantasy upside, because of Steven Jackson, Jaquizz Rodgers and Devonta Freeman, as well as that horrible o-line, to be honest.

    Ordinarily, I'd say how good those pickups are...but Romo could easily be out for the game on sunday....although he is tough.

    If Romo goes IA or even to game time decision I'll switch him out and put Roethlisberger in. I can do that right?

    I haven't picked up many players on waivers this year, except the bye week cover at TE, K and DEF. I haven't felt like I've needed it tbh. My problem lies in the fact that players like Lynch and VJax are being used properly in their respective offences. Hopefully Breesus pops off tonight. Panthers are tough against the run, need the 'aints to go off like they did against the packers, as much as that hurts me to say.

    Yeah, I'm not playing Tony Romo with a broken back and neither are the Cowboys... Big Ben had best break his bad run against Baltimore

    HAVE YOU SEEN THE WEATHER IN FOXBOROUGH? This does not look good for Peyton.

    I'm back to hating the Cowboys again. All it took was Brandon Weeden and an ineffective DeMarco Murray. Bortles is throwing TDs today which is great news, I'd rather like that to be the case next week.

    Well done Scott, I've been absolutely killed here. How can I compete with 1/2 TDs off every player!?

    I am having an absolutely brilliant fantasy week!

    All of my players have scored at least one TD (some have two), racking up 120 points in the process

    I actually think I would have lost without a bench full of bye weeks.

    I think so too. For the first time this season, all of my key players have been healthy at the same time and just turned up in their games.

    Yeah, I feel like the Chargers against the Dolphins, I've been absolutely violated! None of the guys I needed to be 20 point guys, were anywhere close!

    I also still like Bortles despite lack of results and hat full of picks. The offense starts 7 rookies at the minute and the NFL is much like Alan Hansen's premier league era: 'You won't win anything with kids' not that many anyway.
