Picking Wrong Guys:

Recommended Posts

zamboni

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.

argh,

looks like I drafted a whole roster full of the wrong guys in one of my leagues. I'm getting waxed by 60 points right now!

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.

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!
