Yup, I am officially dropping Cam Newton after this week. He's a terrible quarterback, and I don't know why I let him fool me twice this year. There are about 12 QBs that are available that are more reliable than he is.

It's normally reversed, which is why I played RGIII in the first place. Can Newton hasn't put up more than 15 until today.

I figured I couldn't go wrong with Eli. 450 in his first week, 360 last week. Even if he doesn't throw multiple TDs, I expected near 300 yards which would be worth about 33 points, but instead he throw for under half of that and has landed me.....(drumroll please)...... 5 points.

RGIII's bad day ruined the days Joique Bell and Jimmy Graham had for me. Graham had 25.4 (but I was going against Brees), Bell has 19.4 with a little under 2 to go.

Edelman and Foster getting below 6 didn't help me either.

I wouldn't do it, unless you really need a wide receiver. MJD is going to be terrible this year.

Especially that guy who is dropping cam newton popcorn

Last year he was 16th overall QB thru 5 weeks and finished top 5. His first year he was 14th after 5 and finished top 5. Cool your jets

Kaepernick 2/8 for 36 yards. Gross city.

If you told me a team anchored by Foster and Lynch would struggle this badly before the season I would have laughed. Good lord it's maddening.

This has been a weird year for RBs. AP, while good, has kind of struggled. Doug Martin has struggled as well. Ditto for Foster and Lynch. Wish I had drafted McCoy #1

that's why I didn't take an RB until round 3. It's definitely a passer's league.

Yeah but most leagues are geared more towards rushing stats than QB stats, at least the ones I play in are. Plus usually the drop off from the top tier RB's to the lower end RB's is dramatic, where you can still get a starting QB in the later rounds.

I was projected to win by a mile in my Yahoo league, but Kaepernick has pretty much F'ed my chances. Second year in a row I win the "best draft" award, and I am off to my second awful start.

My league is WR/RB heavy. You get .1 for every yard, and a TD is 6. Guys who go for 60 yards and a TD are scoring 12 points. Compare that to QB's, who only get .04 a yard and 4 points a passing TD.

I'm also playing the only other 2-0 team in my league, so one of us had to lose.

My starting running backs this week are Stevan Ridley, Bilal Powell, and Fred Jackson and I'm somehow about to move to 3-0.
