Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2009 ptII

I need to petition my keeper league to dump the week 17 championship each year. It's a battle of backup players for the championship game.

I clicked on this thread thinking "who in the hell is playing a week 17 championship" ???

Yeah, I'm all for the love of the game but week 17 for the title is lamer than a Cincinnati/Florida Sugar Bowl. Peeps still play in week 17 title leagues? Wow.

Word tonight is that Brees is 3rd string... The NFL doesn't take week 17 seriously, why should fantasy leagues? Very odd to me that there are still title games being played... Yuck.

Ya, I don't understand why. The championship game is featuring my opponent starting an injured Ryan over Peyton Manning and me starting McNabb over Rivers. Additionally, I'm down my #1 WR in VJackson who will likely not play at all and have to put in SMoss instead, while my opponent just picked up Snelling to replaced Brandon Marshall in the flex. Heck, I picked up Flacco just to block him from being able to pick up anyone decent who might start this week.

My keepers in this league are not great, but it seems like I always win out this terrible week 17 championship to end up with last draft pick each year... The joys of winning.

standard yahoo leagues end on week 16 but standard espn leagues end on week 17. I've always been partial to yahoo fantasy sports and still weary of espn fantasy games.

It's been an interesting ending of who's playing and who's sitting and who's available off waivers. i hope the people i picked up and the choices I made don't come back to bite me in the ass.

Exactly. Sadly, the irony is lost on you.

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2009 ptII

Might finally get my league changed from a Week 17 Super Bowl, since I'm playing the commish, who has Brees, Turner, Brandon Marshall, and Addai (keeper league), none of whom will play.

That's rough.

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2009 ptII

Can't make up my mind, I need to decide which one to start:
J.Charles v Den
T.Jones v Cin
J.Harrison v Jax

I'm starting MJD and have Harrison in at the moment, but they're all great starts. Anyone think I should play Charles or Jones over Harrison? Charles helped me win my other league and has just been a stud. Jones is consistent and the Jets need to win, plus they're saying Cincy may rest their starters. Harrison has 73 carries, 434 yards, and 4 tds in the last 2 weeks.

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2009 ptII

So which teams are basically laying down today by resting starters?

I see Brees isn't playing. Brady is playing, but who knows for how long. Cincy doesn't really need to play anyone since they won't change any spots, but they seem to be at least playing their starters.

Colts obviously.

Chargers most likely.

Probably the Pats. Probably the Bengals.

Arizona will probably sit their studs if Minny wins early. I wouldn't expect the Packers to play their starters for more than a half.

I don't know why I thought starting the Colts D vs Buf was smarter than the GB D vs Ari.

Deftones being unnecessarily hostile to me again. Shocking.

To think, we've coexisted on this board without such pointless hostility for YEARS. And then when I say something about the Arizona Cardinals, Deftones is in over-the-top asshole mode EVERY TIME he replies to one of my posts.

What an amazing coincidence!

Who needs to let things go ... "cupcake?" Nothing worse than a hypocrite. 'Cept maybe a petty grudge-holding hypocrite.

has nothing to do with that if you haven't noticed. it has everything to do with you being a whiny vagina in regards to the fantasy football talk in the regular nfl threads. no reason to keep arguing with you if you aren't smart enough to see that.

I don't believe you. You got your panties in a royal bunch over me calling Arizona a laughingstock, and whether you'll admit it to yourself or not, you still have them in a bunch.

We've both been on this board for years without a problem. Now, every time I post, you have a snotty and/or abusive comment, and you giggle like a junior-high girl if anyone else so much as says 'boo' to me. You've been obsessing on me ever since the Arizona thing. I don't expect you're capable of just admitting it, but it's pretty clear.
