Just me and Grumps at 2-0 in Gold?

Right you are. Should be fixed (but I'm multi-tasking so let me know if you see any errors). Thanks.

This week's hot commodity was obviously Andre Brown. He went for $12, $17, $17, $21, and $21.

No other player was claimed in more than 3 leagues.

Yeah, I posted this in week 1, but sad I missed out on Brown. CarlBear beat me out by $1. Knew I should have put in more. Well, here's hoping David Wilson shows up tonight.

As a Giant fan though I am rooting for the whole team!

Damn, the Giants play tonight. Gotta make some decisions about starting Wilson or not. Damn.

Unless you have a vastly better and dependable RB, I would. Andre Brown will definitely get the start but Giants always do a 2 man running game.

Sorry tempest. I only had 3 RBs worth starting every week and 2 of them have the same bye week. At some point Fred Jackson is coming back to cut into Spiller's time, and Ced Ben hasn't inspired confidence yet... I was hoping for more GB blowouts and a lot of Benson late in games, but that hasn't happened so far. Bradshaw will also be back, so who knows how long Brown works for me.

I saw you pulled back some potential trade offers. Let me know if you're still looking to deal... if you put any faith in the magic fleaflicker prediction engine it looks like you will cruise to victory but more than happy to look at options.

Can't decide if I should start Brown over Alfred Morris... decisions decisions.

I was just looking for more depth in my RB category. A lot of them turned out to be busts. Some of the bye weeks might be hard once one of my WR's has the week off.

I'm really hoping that the Falcons will realize that Michael Turner is fat and start increasing Jacquizz Rodgers' roll before my bye weeks start hitting.

I'm surprised you didn't play Bennett FSeven. If your willing to trade him I may bite.

I'm starting to wish I kept Ramses Barden but he is only in cause Hixon is injured.

Looks like I made the right decision 100yds and a TD in the first half for Brown.

Grumble grumble

Crazy game by Andre Brown.

Should have started Bennett but after the game Celek had last week, I gave him the nod as I think Vick will need to target him primarily against a tough Cardinals D.

Grats to the Andre Brown owners. Amazing numbers. I think I can now officially take David Wilson off because the Giants seem to never want to use him. Once Bradshaw is healthy he will be forgotten.

They didn't even play him when the backup QB Carr was in and they let Scott run. Never got angry before while the Giants were winning. FF has ruined me...

Also congrats to those who had Tynes. Crazy points for a kicker.

Had the same dilemma in my non-GWJ league and made the same choice. Oh well.

I really hate cheering for the Eagles...

This is the reason I refuse to draft anyone on the Steelers in a fantasy football league.

I started Bennett over Witten hoping to capitalize on Nicks being out, so far so good - but the way FFL fortune turns Witten is likely to get 2TD + 150 yds

Funny because my football watching "career" has purely been defined by Fantasy Football. I've been playing FFL for around 15 years now. There was no live ffl scoring, no game casts, no Sunday ticket, no RedZone channel. The only way you knew what your ffl team did was to go to a bar, watch, and scribble notes. I lived in LA when the Rams and Raiders played, I went to Cal when Steve Young took over the 49ers and led them to a superbowl, i lived in NY when the giants lost to the ravens in the superbowl, and now I'm back in the bay area with the 49ers looking strong again, and I still can't really say I care for any pro team. I'll root my Cal bears in the pro's and try to draft them (I have Desean Jackson in all 3 of my leagues), and I generally avoid furd players but other than that.. watching pro football for me might as well be watching a stock ticker nowadays..just show my numbers going up and I'm happy!

My first year playing Ff it was in the 90s and I was on a med cruise in the navy. The guy running it had to use the ship's library phones (15 min time limit and a sigh up sheet) to call his wife to get stats from the newspaper.

I started running my first FFL league in 1995 and it was a real pain - did all the scoring via box scores in the newspaper which took about 2 hours. The upside was that I was a fount of "useless" football statistics...

I started playing FF in the 1800's when we use to get the scores by carrier pigeon, uphill and in the snow.

Sorry, couldn't help myself.

I feel for the wingless pigeon's

More serious note - it is really wild how FFL has exploded over the last 15 years - from a real cultish like following to every sports site on the internet hosting free services with a cottage industry supplying information, etc. I remember paying $60 bucks for a custom filemaker pro database and statistics service and thought it was the greatest thing in the world, especially when I could pull it down on my v.90 modem.

Anybody else have any stories / memories on the evolution of FFL? One other memory that always gets me was watching a preseason game the year of the Kurt Warner comeback story. If I remember right, Trent Green was a trendy pick for the Rams and he got hurt and Joe Germaine (sp? right guy?) was hurt shortly after or just wasn't good enough - during our live draft. Somebody took a flyer on Kurt W. and the rest is a Disney movie...

I used to calculate scores by hand out of the newspaper. Started in the late '80s.

Then came some piece of software with stat downloads - woo! Fanball, I think it was.

Some fantasy lightning-in-a-bottle:

Mark Brunell in 1996. Led the league with over 4300 yards passing in his first full year as a starter. Tom Coughlin never let him off the leash like that again, but it was 1996 and they were a 2nd year expansion team, what the hell worries did they have? Throw, throw, throw.

Lorenzo White in 1992. Scrub to factor back for one year.

Michael Haynes in 1991 and 1992. Suddenly a touchdown machine in that June Jones run-and-shoot in Atlanta.

And of course, one of the all-time ones, the Majik man, Don Majkowski in 1989.

I started around 1997 or 98 on Sandbox.com. It was the first big online fantasy sports site, but the after 2000 they started being dumb and severely limited what you could do with a 'free' account. They made it so that you could still play on the site, but if you didn't pay, you could only make 2 moves to your team a week... Needless to say, I and many others immediately left the site and it went bankrupt in 2002. I've been doing baseball, basketball, and football leagues every year on yahoo since 2000.

Culpepper and Randy Moss. A magical year of fantasy football.

Ugh, I may have screwed myself by sleeping too late. All of my bench wide receivers are in early games so I can't put one in for Torrey Smith. Hopefully he plays.
