    You’re too kind to the commish. Who recently added Kenny Stills of the Saints and Marvin Jones of the Bengals.

    Kenny Stills caught two long touchdowns, and 129 yards. That was 33 points, the fifth-most of any player last week. Marvin Jones caught an incredible four touchdowns, earning 47 points, the second-most of any player last week. Career days for both players. And I had BOTH of them on my team!

    But I believed that Brian Hartline (4 receptions, 37 yards, 8 points) and Roy Helu, Jr. (11 rushing yards, 3 points) were better choices, and lost by 28 points. For those of you doing the math, substituting either breakout player for Helu, alone, would have won me the week.

    Curses! Curses upon curses!Report

      Not sure how negative I really want to be to people in the League. Still, bad call. 🙂

      You know you are going to put them in this week and they will both be duds.Report

        Marvin Jones gave me 12 points off a projected 11 in a really weird game. Acceptable numbers, but I can’t expect him to be putting up 47 points every week. He’s not Calvin Johnson, after all.

        Britt’s riding the pine for me this week. The chances he’ll get a performance like that two weeks in a row seem minute to me. (Of course, that suggests he’ll have another fantastic showing, so if you’ve got Britt in some other league, play him because I’m not going to!)Report

        At least Jones met his totals for you. Thankfully, Green did fine for me too.

        Sucks if you played Dalton because of a buy week for your other QB. Sadly, I did in another league….Report

    I have determined that this game is really stupid and is designed for childish, awful, terrible people, on the basis that I keep losing.Report
