I knew you didn't mean it but I took it more as being snotty than kidding. And no it is never an advantage but in this league it's the only one some of us have with an injured player.

Vonderful is an awesome name. Kudos to Vegas Broncos for his too. Made me laugh so hard at work today.

My team is an absolute disaster without injuries. Any and every body on my roster is available if anybody is looking to trade.
I'm first on the waiver wire, but there is absolutely nothing there. My fault for forgetting the draft date, no one to blame but myself.

I like Doug Martin as my #3 rb

1. I'm sure everyone will get hit with injuries at some point, and bye weeks will be murder on everyone. This makes it a more compelling league to me though. In an 8 person league everyone is balls deep in top talent. In a 10 person league everyone has at least one starting back/heavy side of a platoon on their bench and ample WRs and QBs to pick form in the event of injury. In a 12 person league it's a little tougher, but just a little.

In a 16 person league it's like a real NFL team where someone like Peyton Hillis or Mike Tolbert who has touchdown vulture potential is a real bench option/bye week play depending on match up. So you've just got to take your roster construction to the second level.

2. I'm pretty happy with my depth at everything but RB, which isn't horrible. Hell, picking the WR to play as my flex option is actually rather difficult.

The people who keep a healthier team through the first few weeks will likely pick up some landslide wins, but by the middle of the season we're all probably going to be quite happy if our team scores in the 80's carried there by a couple standouts and surprise contribution from some well chosen 2nd stringers.

Thanks guys I do feel better. Glad to know you all think your teams suck too. I think looking at the benches, especially mine, set me off. That and having to start Marcel Reece. As in any fantasy football league it will be luck, who avoids injuries and who has the players that have a great week. And yes Rulon I'm hoping your team really sucks this week.

To be fair, Benson got you 11 points last night, which is about 6 more than I thought he'd get.

Oh also thank you for leaving the Packers D on your bench
You now get to start Miami's D Sunday

That will be Benson's biggest output this season. I couldn't bring myself to start the Pack after last weeks debacle, and this week they play like the damn Steel Curtain sitting on my bench. FML

WooHoo Jay Cuttie really tore it up for me. 2.24 points. I should have started Cassel. How sad it that. **** you American Airlines for delaying my flight and causing me to miss the draft. I am going to ride that excuse for the duration of the season.

My team = is good

It's a crying shame that I'm going to be 2-0 in a $25 league and I'm going to be 0-2 in a $200 league. I should play more $25 leagues.

You did get a nice karmic rebound by catching three of the biggest days period with Foster, Nicks, and Jackson.

That was a nice bounce back. The only way I lose now is if Manning goes crazy tonight. I could handle losing that way.

Didn't realize I didn't have a DST in my starting lineup until it was too late. Luckily I was able to still get the W.

Glad that LeShoure stash worked out, even though it's still early. Someone tried to offer up Holmes for him a couple weeks ago.
