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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
