You will regret this trade in a month. Hope Mixon goes bananas, for your sake.

Yeah I kind of panicked because I lost both Leveon Bell and Mccaffrey to injuries. Felt like I couldn't make it the potential 6 weeks without making a move. Probably should have rode it out with waivers RBs though.

Last year, I started Minshew twice. The first time was week 6. He hadn't scored less than 17 points all season and the matchup was good. He got my 5.62 points. After that, he put up a 21 point game and a 25 point game. I said okay, another great matchup, lets do this week 9. He got me 11.76 points. I say screw Gardner I'm out.

 

Fast forward to this year. I drafted Carson Wentz who has been a dumpster fire and needed to get some points out of my QB spot. Minshew started the year on fire and has a matchup against a team that just let Josh Allen throw over 400 yards. Minshew coming off two 20+ point weeks. He gets me 11.20 points.

 

Will I forsake Garnder Minshew forever? Will I continue to trot him out in his upcoming good matchups only to be let down as always? Stay tuned to find out!

Friend in my league had the worst draft as he was autodrafted.  Ended up with like 4 QB's, 4 DEF, maybe 3 kickers, and no WR's.  

He just happens to pickup a few guys that no one really wanted: James Robinson, Russell Gage, Hines, etc.  

On the other hand, I left the draft feeling great (M Sanders, M Thomas, Josh Jacobs, K Hunt, DJ Chark, etc). 

Guess who's 1-1 and who's 0-2?

Going to be a total dick here and mention that the Singletary owner traded him to me (Moss owner) this week.

Injuries this year are just killing me. 
 

I’ve already had 5 injuries on my team picks 1,2,3,5 and 7 Most of the injuries didn’t even happen during a game.

In a normal fantasy season my pickup of James Robinson would basically ensure me of being the #1 team in the league. However with injuries to McCaffrey, Golladay, Kittle, and Sheperd, it's instead going to keep me from being the worst team in the league.

I guess i should have picked MIA defense, usually TNF games are a poop show on both sides... but wow. feels good to lose on TNF.

Man I hate leagues where bench players lock after a game.
 

I stupidly wasted a bench spot on minshew, so when Edmonds got dropped I had to drop hamler. 
 

Now I gotta sweet it out and hope he doesn't blow up this week. Hedging my bets and flexing him so it doesn't sting AS much if things do go that way lol.

I tried to talk you out of Bell and Mack but you wouldn't listen.  That's on you.

Saquon, on the other hand...that sucks.

And in game injuries are the worst because in competitive leagues you likely lose that game.

Went completely no RBs because WRs are safer right? 
 

Round 1 - Michael Thomas

Round 2 - Devante Adams

Round 3 - Kenny G 

Yahoo gave me a C- for draft grade. Yahoo knew man. 
 

Another C grade is coming from this combination:

R1 - Michael Thomas

R2- Julio Jones

R3- Kenny G

I’m 0-2 in leagues with those 2 combinations. Great.

Bell and Mack might not have had spectacular seasons even if healthy, but underperforming is a whole different story from getting injured in week 1-2

THIS.  Bell & Mack were hot garbage picks coming into the season.  Really sucks to be a Barkley owner everywhere.
