    Another tough choice at RB for me this week. AP is a definite start against Detroit, but my other options are very good.

    T.Jones v SF
    C.Johnson v CLE
    P.Hillis v KC (I can't believe nobody else picked him up. I snared him so nobody else could in the end)

    Dynamo has the clear advantage in the WR department so I will have to make up ground in the other areas and hope Warner outperforms Cutler. Both have tasty matchups.

    Gates' 0 helps but Dallas Clark hasn't exactly done much lately.

    I would recommend that you choose C.Johnson v CLE.

    Got smashed. Didn't matter which RB I started anyway.

    Apart from Gates every one of Dynamo's guys scored well. Just one of those weeks where my guys did nothing and his did everything. Too bad it was during the playoffs. (That sums up FF in a nutshell)

    Pierre Thomas with 24+ points? Come on, thats not fair.

    And who would predict Peterson would get only 7 points against Detroit? Not me.
    Again, my WR's screwed me. I remember WR being my weak spot last year and tried to address that this year, by taking Wayne and Colston with my 2nd and 3rd picks in the draft (solid seletions in anyone's book) but they have really disappointed. Wayne had a decent start to the year but was lousy down the stretch and Colston had a hand injury and missed half the season, but even since coming back has done nothing. Dwayne Bowe and DeSean Jackson however were bright spots for me considering where I took them.

    I really liked my RB crew though. Peterson will probably go number 1 next year and Thomas Jones has been a pleasant surprise. I had high hopes for him after the O-line got better and the addition of Favre to take the pressure off and he responded brilliantly. Also my selection of rookie Chris Johnson very late was almost prophetic. He'll be a top 10-15 selection next year.

    I can't recall the number of weeks I cursed because I could only start 2 of them. :doh: I'm voting for a flex spot next year! Who's with me?!

    Oh and congrats to Dynamo. His guys stepped up to the plate big time. Roddy White is a sensation. He'll be one of the first WR off the board next year. Good luck next week.

    I had one of those weeks. Well, actually I had.....about 10 of those weeks.

    Bill, your son better not get too comfortable. I haven't had a lead this late in the week in about 2 months.

    True, I've had 2 players play against his 0 so far this week, but I'm looking for small victories at this point.

    What an amazing semi-final between Victorious Secret and Dynamo.

    Dynamo needed about 19 points from the Eagles defense in the Monday Night Football game to secure a victory. Philly just got another interception to close the gap to less than one point (VS leads 125.62-124.74) with 11 minutes left in the game.

    Dynamo now needs just one point to earn a spot in the championship game. If the Eagles get a sack, interception or touchdown, Dyanamo is celebrating. If the Browns manage to score some points, than Victorious Secret will extend its narrow lead.

    What drama. What suspense. Am I the only one paying attention?

    I got home from hockey practice with my son. I checked to see if the Eagles got me to the next round in survivor. That made me think of fantasy football, so I checked. (I had checked earlier today and figured Mikhail was toast. So yes, I looked before you posted it and saw the one point gap. Very exciting! I'm glad it's not me. I almost had a heart attack in the final between Jammer & I in baseball which almost came down to the last batter.

    Wow, the Eagles get a sack with 1 minute left to give Dynamo the win (unless there is a stat correction overnight).

    In the other semi, Jammer got crushed 108.94-82.48 by a 14-year-old kid.

    Hey, it ain't over yet.

    I'll have you know that I still have 3 guys that play tomorrow. I don't have Stat Tracker, but I think I'm only down by about 600 points or so, so I only need each of my 3 guys to average 200 points tomorrow and I'm all tied up.

    I was going to mention you too, but they don't have any 4th place trophies. :MusicBigGrin:

    You did what I did last year. Made the final four but came away empty handed. :granade:

    I'd like to thank everyone for letting me be in the league this year. You all did good with exception of Darth and Jammer, for a bunch of old guys. I think all of you guys should stick to basketball because a 14 year old can beat you in football. I'm looking forward to back to back next year.
