This is why I hate fantasy football. I had the best team all season and now I have to deal with injuries to Favre, Bush, Roy W at the most important time of the year. I am in the semifinal elimination round looking at some big money for the championship round.
With Bush gone, I have Stecker, Fred Jackson and Lendale White to fill his shoes. None of these guys are really that good but this is all I have to work with. If I lose, then I may take off another 5 years before giving FFB another try.

I've come to the conclusion that the rules of my league are horrible. I've never played in a money league in football, and actually haven't played at all for 5 years until now - so I don't know if this is common place or if my league just sucks.
We have 12 teams, 3 divisions. Top 3 in each division make it as does a wildcard which is awarded to the 2nd place finisher with the best record of course.
This is our last week of the regular season. I have the best record in the league up until this point, at 9-4. However, there are quite a few others at 8-5. If I lose this week, I finish NO WORSE than tied for the best record in the regular season but I CANT make the playoffs. This is due to the fact that my division contains most of the other 8-5 teams and I naturally have the worst division record among us.
Why couldn't it just be top 4 teams, tie breaker goes to the team with the most points. Then I'd be guaranteed a playoff spot now (and at least a cut of the pot).
In any event, if simply just win, I'm the #1 seed. Boo yahh.
I've taken this year off from fantasy football. Just didn't have the time nor the initiative to participate this year. I'll probably return next year. So, I could use all the pointers needed to prepare for next year's drafts/auctions. Anything different? Must be a down year for RB's and a better than usual one for QB's especially if you have Brady or Romo, right?
I've had one team lose the following players this year:
McNabb Larry Johnson (for what seems like most of the year) Marshawn Lynch Steve Smith (the good one) Santonio Holmes
Yet I'm still in first at 10-3, second is at 8-5, and 4 teams are tied at 7-6. I've got the 4th highest points scored total so even if I had dropped a couple of games, I'd still be right in the thick of it. Injuries can always be overcome.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
I'm not a huge fan. First two picks this year were Stephen Jackson, and Marvin Harrison = 7th place. Other than those two I drafted well and have a few FA pickups, but when your top two players are ineffective there is no coming back apparently.
