Picking Wrong Guys:

11 posts in this topic

Anyone else have a habit of this- having diff players to choose from a seemingly picking the wrong one? Today I chose to start Vince Young over Ben Roethlisberger- bad move. Another one- I started Santana Moss over Jericho Cotchery or Joey Galloway- both had better games than Santana Moss. You know what will happen next week? Yeah, I'll start Big Ben and Vince young will be on fire and Ben will stink. And so my fantasy season goes.......

Don't feel too bad in one league my 9 starters scored 52 and my 6 bench guys scored 58. And Wayne as one of my starters score 21 alone. No matter what you do it is going to happen a time or two during the year! grin.gifconfused.gifgrin.gif

I played the guy in my league that has Wayne- if not for him, I would have won this week. Oh, and the fact- my #2 overall pick Stephen Jackson was horrible today

Yep I know how it feels I kept Colston from last year and traded up to get Reggie Bush, both of them got me a big fat 0 this week.

My opponent this week also had Wayne. Only as it stands right now I am beating him 120 to 86.

I chose to start the Vikings Def. today over Denver's, solid choice on my part. Its nice to get 29 points from your 14th round pick.

I also have Plexico Burress which added another 33. Thankfully I had these two on my team to make up for LJ and Maurice Jones Drew both having poor games.

I still have Todd Heap playing tomorrow so we'll see if I can add to my 120 point total.

Sorry to brag but I had to tell someone since my wife just doesn't care.

I released Randy Moss. Somebody told me he was washed up and his career was finished.

I had Brady,Moss, Peterson,Baber, and Minnesota Def. Kick (Contact Us Please) and take names. Everyone laugh at me for choosing Brady and Moss. Then before season started, Wanted to trade for them.

and also the week with the most roster moves. i had a few bad plays this week, but im keeping my roster in check for now. at least it looks like my 8th rounder lamont jordan may be very active in the passing game again this year.

Yeah, just ride things out. It's a 17 week season. I love how my league's message board is full of cocky posts and we just got started. Wow, congrats, Adrian Peterson went off for you....he was scheduled to share carries and Taylor got hurt in the first quarter...Yep, way to go, you can count on the Vikings defense to register 6 sacks and 2 TDs a game....You must be a soothsayer, cuz Calvin Johnson is going to score a TD on a mediocre Lions team every week with Kitna throwing the ball...I mean seriously, there can be a lotta luck each week, but don't get too puffed up. Proven guys and guys that don't score much the first week will even things out over the season.

      Tom and I had a decent bite Monday but it's been tough 2 of my last 3 outings. Bored a bunch of holes and hopped.  Got ours on mostly plastics of every configuration.  Had to keep moving to stay on more aggressive schools of fish.  This meant we continually left fish to find cooperative fish.  When the bite got really tough wacky rigging a micro noodle was the only ay to get them to go.  Had several between 9 and 9 1/2 inches.  These were all deep flat fish near a deeper hole.  Midday was best for us.  Slow in the morning and again later in the afternoon.

      Got out yesterday. Plenty of ice, not too much snow. Got a few gills and a few crappies. Light bite. Not exactly fast and furious, but fun to be out. Heading back today.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!
