Default FF just ***** sometimes...

Darren McFadden - hurt.
Ben Tate - hurt.
Andre Brown - hurt.
Kendall Hunter - hurt.
desperate for Jalen Parmele - hurt.
Initially drafted Fred Jackson - hurt and hurt and hurt again.

What is that?

Don't feel bad. In one of my leagues, this is the team I drafted:

M. Vick- Total disappointment. Now hurt.
L. McCoy- Disappointment. Traded for RGIII.
B. Wells- BUST
G. Jennings- BUST
S. Smith- Disappointment
E. Decker- one of my few solid picks
J. Graham- disappointment. Traded.

I'm starting Shonn Greene and Michael Bush at RB this week. My team is now 4-8. I consider that an accomplishment.

Oooh. I feel with you, my friend.
(But despite all solidarity let me say one thing: Drafting wicked wiggedy Vick is not bad luck, but more of a mistake in the first place...)

Btw. had to trade for Dwyer/Redman now. That's just bad.

Had Gronk and Brady, which I was completely two-holing everyone in my league, but then Gronk goes down and I keep dominating because I also have Peterson, Doug Martin, D Thomas, R. Cobb, and then a few other scrubs, but I haven't lost since week 6 and the least amount of points I won by was 28.5.

Domination.

To be fair though, Brown, Tate and Hunter are all backups. It's like saying you drafted Bernard Scott.

Brown had value, and for the other guys... I figured as soon as the playoff spot is clinched, these guys would get to carry the load. (Which might still happen with Tate, to be fair. Seems he gets healthy finally.)
- Losing 3 guys to IR at one day is still tough.

(And yeah, I drafted the Jacksons as RBs, which was obviously not the smartest choice.)

just watch teams and players their situations coaching changes roster changes and predict who will have good years next year..

Andy is probably the most underrated QB in fantasy. On pace for 33 tds, and he was on waivers in most leagues for half the season. I think I'll be taking him in the 3rd-5th round next year if noone else snaps him up.

My fantasy hasn't bee too bad, one team sitting at .500 (a few injuries/disappointments, but whatever.) Another is sitting at 8-4, but I drafted Vick, was uneasy about it, so I traded for Roethlisberger. Both go down on the same weekend.

Starting Colin Kaepernick. :-/

My fantasy football has been pretty good this year. I'm in 6 leagues and I'm number 1 in 4 of them. The only ones I'm not leading is the ones I wasn't there for the draft.

I traded for him and gave up Roethlisberger for him. In all modesty, that was a very wise move.
And my heart was longing for it too.

I feel for you,
I have 3 teams, and have players out everywhere. At one point on one of my teams I had 8 players listed as Out/IR.
I managed to use the waiver wire to my benefit (Snatched up Colin Kaepernic, Alfred Morris, Bryce Brown, Cecil Shorts, Denario Alexander, and Heath Miller).

I'm in second place in two of my leagues and just missed the Playoffs in my third (might still have a chance this week, but that's the one that had 8 players out).

Rule of thumb....Never get players from your favorite football team. It leads to disappointment 2 different ways sometimes....But I have thought the same thing too for Dalton next year as maybe a possible backup.

Dalton is a solid starter in fantasy now. He's 5th in the league in passing tds, and he's also rushed for 3. I'm thinking about waiting on a QB next year and taking him in the 4th or 5th round.

Thank you... in an attempt to create even more pity: Now Starks obviously is out too. It just doesn't stop.

Good thing I too could pick up Bryce Brown and Danario Alexander (whom I was able to trade for Dwyer/Redman).
