    Lots of 5-5 teams.

    My team went from 1-4 to 5-5.

    But you know what...it isn't like I improved or did anything different.

    At 1-4 I scored 488 points.

    In the next five I went 4-1 scoring 494 points.

    Almost identical but I went from 13th place to 6th place so I'm finally about where I should be (4th most points in the league).

    After 10 weeks one particular team has only had 785 scored against it (5-5) . Another team had 1017 scored against it (3-7). The team with 1017 against it outscored the 785 team by 60 plus points.

    There is a 6-4 team that has outscored a 9-1 team by 60 points.

    Random. Random. Random. :smash::gaah:

    Nice random data, but we need to look at injuries to key players, and the ever popular bye week players.

    Knowshon (knot that he mattered much) makes 3 of my draft class on IR. Can anyone beat that?

    I lead the league in waiver actions, and am second to Darth trader in overall moves...

    Probably just a sign of desperation vs skill.

    Nemo - You are catching me on a good week this week. Vick is likely out so starting Tebow, Mike Wallace is on a bye, and AJ Green is likely out. Our projected points aren't a pretty sight...

    Yea...I got Drew Brees, Marcus Colston, Hines Ward, and My stellar defense..Houston...on the bench...:cold:

    I really didn't figure I had a chance...til I saw that Tebow was playing against the Hungry Jets...

    Now maybe I won't get blown out...:)

    Brees and Colston are a big loss, but you dare mention Hines Ward? haha. I'm a Steelers fan and I wouldn't breathe his name in any argument to support your fantasy team. These days he is the 4th best WR option on that team and only holding back the development of Brown and Sanders.

    Not sure what to expect of Tebow. McGahee is back so we could well see 30 carries for him and less than 10 passes from Tebow. Hoping he can make up for it with some rushing numbers.

    Our WR's are thin and a crapshoot. TE is going to be an interesting matchup.

    A remarkable happening today...

    Runners Up is leading Any Given Sunday by a score of 81.58 to 80.18

    There is a few minutes left in the 4th quarter of some games which may affect the outcome.

    What's remarkable is Runner Up's bench has scored 90.56 points. 6 players not good enough to start are beating BOTH starting teams...

    He picked up Kevin Smith AFTER he was putting up huge numbers. We'll see if it is a good long-term move or a one-week fluke.

    I got the other guy on the Lions starting and he only got 4 points.
    Makes me wish I had BenJarvus back...

    What is this message from yahoo when I try to drop and add players? 'A player has already played and is no longer editable for today. (Error #174)'

    You can't drop a player who is in your starting lineup for this week until the next day. You can drop bench players immediately.

    What's in a name, you don't ask?

    The Mcnabbett's (2-5) changed their name to Drath's Spoilers reached an all time low in their history of fantasy sports (losing to Bill Laimbeer for the umpteenth time) I forgot what it was. Anyhow after changing their name to Drath's Spoilers they have run off 4 in a row. The 6-5 Spoilers are now in the 6th and final playoff spot.

    But will they get spoiled next week by the surging Cowardly Lions who are also 6-5 after reeling off 4 in a row? The Lions are in 5th place with 1103.86 points to the Spoilers 1103.16 points!! Razor close. The teams sport the 2nd and 3rd highest totals in the league.

    Honestly, that's the last team I want to face right now (Other than that *&^^&**&^%$##$% Bill Laimbeer's sorry squad, but only because I am cursed against him). . Both Cowardly and I were on fire the last four games. Unfortunately, the loser of this one quite possibly misses the playoffs as that lucky piece of dog :poop: Laimbeer's team Motown, nemo, Webz, and Locstah are waiting in the wings :spider:. The schedules for the last two games make it extremely interesting as all of these teams have very tough match ups ahead.

    So 7 teams fighting for two spots. (I've included that *&^%$#@#$%^&* Bill Laimbeer who always kicks my *&$#@#$%^ *&%^^$ in every *&^%$#@#$%^& league in this total).

    bezeach is in but Junior, TFD, and/or Hita could slip and then it gets even more interesting as we may have 10 teams fighting for 5 of the 6 spots. Although with the records AND point totals taken into account, I would imagine TFD gets in regardless of whether he loses his last two.

    Good writeup, Drath. Thanks for all the kind words. Lots of parity in the league this year, which makes it fun and keeps most GMs interested until the bitter end.

    It will be an interesting finish for sure. My Cowardly Lions have their work cut out for them this week...

    I'm thinking of cancelling Thanksgiving so they won't come out playing sluggish from all the turkey they would have eaten.

    This is a MUST WIN for us. Tater, can you change your team name back to McNabbet's for a week? :D
