I have Amendola too. I can't decide between him or Garcon this week?

If I didn't have Cecil Shorts, Megatron, and VJax, Amendola was my next choice. Weak TB pass D

I'm making the right call starting Heeeeeaaaaaath over Dwyer as my flex in PPR league, right? (No, I'm not one of those yinzers with half my fantasy team made up of dem Stillers.... it's just worked out to that this week 8-) )

Toddy Haley learned his lesson the past few weeks, right? He'll listen to Ben, right?

Danny Amendola and Arian Foster can go jump in a lake.

every decision I made this week was wrong.

-benching Reggie Bush at the last minute
-playing Amendola as my WR 3 over Antonio Brown
-benching the St Louis D

couple bad luck with bad decisions, and the results aren't pretty

Down by 20 in the championship game with only Matt Prater and Stokley left. I'm screwed.

Jamaal Charles won the fantasy title for my opponent....ouch. I can't complain about megatron's performance, but it sucks that he doesn't get any TDs for as many yards as he gets

Looks like I'm going to win my fantasy league. This might be my most satisfying FF championship I've ever won. Finished regular season with most points scored, finished with a respectable points against unlike the #1 seed team, and completely dominated the playoffs.

It wasn't an easy season by any means. During the end stretch of the season, just to make the playoffs, I had to defeat teams that scored 118 and 120 points.

Remarkably, I nearly blew the championship game because I was super close to benching an injured Roddy White for Cecil Shorts, and I shoehorned Amendola for Miles Austin at the last minute. Luckily, Dez Bryant provided enough cushion to make it not matter that much if I did screw up that badly.

I'm up 1.5 pts, I have Moreno going now and Crabtree later tonight. Going against Flacco and Boldin.... Stillers season may be over, but there are still so many reasons to root against Baltymore.

Looks like I am going to end up with my 3rd best score of the season in the fairly meaningless 3-4 matchup. Woot.

Even if I would have been psychic and played Bush for Foster, Brown for Amendola, and stl instead of sd, I still would have lost. That actually makes me feel a bit better.

We have a repeat champion. He made the move and traded my buddy for Peyton Manning, the same owner who wanted to work out a deal for Manning with me, and that would have least got me to the playoffs. I am such an a**hole

back to back 160+ weeks (161 last week, 169.8 this week) puts me in first place by 6.4 pts. Since I'm holding first place in the final week, and with the 3rd place person almost 110 points out, I was allowed to choose how to play out the final week.

* All in: $450 for first, nothing for second
* $300 for first, $150 for 2nd, which is normally how it plays out.
* $200 each for first and second, with an additional $50 going to the winner.
* $225 each for 1st and 2nd, with zero risk involved for either player.

Went with the last option. Two weeks ago, I thought I'd be lucky to finish third. Also, looking at his team versus mine, his team is stacked. Lynch, Megatron, Manning, Marshall, Murray, D Thomas.

I've had two very good weeks with average players (Williams, AB, Bush) and would need Brees to put up another 450 yard 4 TD week. In this league, I have two top-2 finishes and the person in second has 3 top-2 finishes.

Soooo, I know this thread bump is going to have some people confused, but I didn't want to create a thread just for this

I'm doing my first ever dynasty league. In a keep 2 keeper league for 3 years now... joining a dynasty league in which a lot of guys are in that keeper league.

Its going to be TWENTY man rosters, 10 team league, and after this year the only people you can draft are rookies / unkept guys (can keep as many as you want, so yea those guys will basically be useless).

For some god-unknown reason the draft is on June 6.. Since this first draft will obvious determine so much for many years, I just looked at how I'll rank players for first time, starting with QB's tonight.

Wondering from anyone who has done a dynasty league if I'm overthinking this strategy? My strategy is to rank the first 10 guys as mixture of age / skill with a lot of emphasis on skill... After that I plan to pretty much ONLY go for young guys. As in I'd rather have a Landry Jones and his .01% chance of ever becoming big than a Flacco who will only ever be a bye-week fill in. I'm I overdoing this with my tentative QB rankings I just came up with tonight:
1. Rodgers
2. Luck
3. Newton
4. Brees
5. RGIII
6. Kapernick
7. Wilson
8. Brady
9. Stafford
10. Ryan
Not really asking opinion on these, but THEN after I went:
11. Tannehill
12. Bradford
13. Dalton
14. Freeman
15. Locker
16. Manuel
17. Geno Smith
18. Christian Ponder
19. Cousin
20. Mallet
21. Foles
22. Brock Osweller
23. Barkley
24. Pryor
25. Tyler Wilson
26. Yates
27. Mike Glennon
28. Ryan Nassib
29. Tyler Bray
30. Landry Jones

Is this "Young guys only ranking after my starter" too extreme? Any guys in dynasty leagues?
