    Fantasy depression

    2007 Super Bowl: I lose by 13. Willie Parker breaks his leg in the 1st qtr. Had a tremendous matchup vs the Rams.

    2009 Super Bowl: Rosters freeze at end of "regular season". I lose my #2 and #3 RBs to injury and my #4 was a handcuff. Have to start my #5 RB (Chris Brown). I lose by 2. Miles Austin also leaves game on Sunday night on last drive while I am down 2.

    2010 Semis (today): Collie gets knocked out in 2nd qtr while on way to monster game. Moreno leaves after 5 yds in 1st qtr. I am currently in trouble.

    Hard to comprehend.

    Collie already had 20 when he went out against me today, in a non ppr league that's pretty big, but yeah probably would have had 30+.

    I'm in pretty good shape. I have vick and I started Vincent Jackson this week. Fitz and mcfadden both had decent enough days and I'm already winning with my opponent out of players and I still have the bears left tomorrow.

    As the 3 seed I got upset last week by the 6 seed because Aaron Rodgers got hurt..and to make it worse I lost by 0.04 points (76.88 to 76.84). I've never felt so pissed off about a fantasy game in my life.

    To make it worse, my team is the leading point getter this week and I would've upset the #2 seed on my way to the championship.

    Soooooo.......

    I end up down 24 pts going into tonight. Totally doable since I have one of the best players in football on my team playing tonight.

    Yep, you guessed it.

    The person who is playing me in the RedZone1 league is down by 4 and had a chance to beat me until Peterson was announced as being out tonight.

    I saw that. And I'm playing you in the final because the Bears defense/ST got me 53 points ... I was down 28 going into last night.

    He was talking about AP last week.

    I was down 17 with Vick going tonight but the guy I was playing had Akers. I wasn't too optimistic but Vick outscored him 20 to 1.

    I was in the same spot in my league, in a hole and starting Vick against a guy starting Akers. He still wound up one point ahead of me. Thankfully I was the higher seed in our game. Our league gives the higher seed a three point bonus as "homefield advantage", and that bonus gave me a two point win and put me in the title game!

    Well I lost MJD for this week. I picked up Rashad Jennings, hopefully he can have a decent game. I'm gonna need it.

    I had a chance to come from behind and win, but the Eagles defense blew it against a Vikings team that started a rookie QB.

    I won my league last night in a close game. I had 3 guys injured (we start 22 guys and play IDP) but I managed a 10 point win. Championship!

    I'm now in the championship, but Vick is out. MJD is out. And Mcfadden is out.

    I picked up Tebow, not sure if I'm actually going to start him, but I'm considering it. I think it would be funny if he carried me to the title.
