This may just be a spinoff off the Vent thread, but pull up a chair and let loose with your tale of woe. Did your opponent go off? How many busts did you start?

For me:
Started Amendola and Bradshaw. No one on my team had a huge week. Opponent had Megatron, Matt Ryan and Reggie Bush.

QB: M.Ryan

RB: F.Gore, M.Ingram, TJ Yeldon, A.Foster, A.Blue, D.Herron

My line up:

Ryan
Julio
Nicks
Shorts
McFadden
Moreno
Hernandez
Tynes
San Diego

His line-up

Rodgers
Decker
R. White
D. Avery
S. Greene
M. Leshoure
J. Gresham
Gostkowski
Houston Defensive

My squad didn't even score a TD today. All my TD's came from last night. I did bench Jennings for Shorts and Richardson for McFadden, but those moves didn't even matter. Can't believe the duds both Giant Players and Hernandez had today. AND REALLY, SHONN "F*C*IN$" GREENE!!!! He's killed me all season. When I played the same cat in the Regular Season it was the game that Greene had 3 TD's. I hate Fantasy Football ---->

My entire team had 1pm matchups except Brandon Marshall. I knew I lost within the 1st hour of the 1pm games.

His team went buckwild on me. He put up 145+ points on me...


Added to my Do Not Draft list this year were Ryan Mathews & Jordy Nelson. Not there when I needed them.

I lost by more than 2x the points I scored.

I had - Brady, Cruz, A. Brown, Wayne, Foster, Ballard, Pitta, Sea Bass and Denver D

He had - Rodgers, Marshall, Dez, D. Thomas, Forte, Peterson, Graham, Gostkowski & NE Defense

Pretty sure his WR's outscored my entire team.

My DMC, Murray, and Hernandez were outproduced by Shonn Greene. Unreal.

Started out looking good in a 10 team standard scoring league. Foster screwed and Hernandez only got me one point, but I knew my opponent was tearing his hair out.

Here's 4 names on His Bench this week:
Tony Romo
Dez Bryant
Reggie Bush
CJ Spiller

Before the Sunday night game, his bench has 135 points while his starters have 66. I've got a 33 point lead heading into Sunday night, he's got Wilson and Lynch left to play. I figured it would be close, but that the elite 49ers defense would be able to save me.

Turns out I was wrong. He ends up with 111 points, winning the championship. With his optimal lineup, he would have scored 182 points this week.

And that's not even the best part of this story. This guy missed the draft and autodrafted his entire team. He went 5-8 in the regular season, managing to sneak into the last playoff spot due to having a tiebreaker with someone. And now he's our champion.

I'm very glad that I won 2 of my other leagues today to compensate for this.

12 Team $$ 2RB/3WR

QB: Russell Wilson

RB: Doug Martin, Gio Bernard, Bishop Sankey, Knile Davis, Cameron Artis-Payne, Roy Helu

Def: Carolina

lost by 37 points in one league, at least it is comforting to know that my optimal lineup still wouldn't have beaten the other team.

I won the league in my sig. But in another league, with a lot of friends, I lost my championship game thanks to David Akers. That blocked FG/TD gave his Seahawks defense enough points to beat me. 49ers need to start trying out other kickers. 11 missed FGs is ridiculous for a Superbowl contending team.

even with Dez exploding today, that only matched up with his Romo

Foster and A Hernandez duds hurt today ...

only way I would have had a chance to day if i started Charles over Foster, Blackmon over A Johnson and Gresham over Hernandez

special thanks to his McCoy for coming back today too!

Big Ben gets 15.
Arian Gets 5.
NYG defense stops Flacco for a drive or two.
AJ Green doesn't underperform for a 4th week out of 5.

And I go 2-0.

But nope.

And opponent had Flacco. Unreal.

I defy anyone to find a better 1st post than this.

Welcome, son.

You are home.

Lost by 9 in my work league.

Antonio Brown over Amendola or Romo over RGIII would have wiped his a** off the page.

But . . . so it goes.

This is just like the Josh Gordon thread from last year.
