Unfortunately I missed the draft as I was driving to a doctors appointment here. It looks like the side I randomly got isn't useless, but only time will tell.

I wasn't even going to play this year, but here I am, the leading scorer in the league after week 1. It'll tank shortly, but I laughed.

I needed all those points, too, since I beat the second-highest scorer in the league.

Yeah, I was hoping Kyle Rudolph wouldn't be targeted. Who knew that I should have started the New England running back du jour.

Well, that was a normal week for me, yet again going 0-4.

I thought that your washed up 40 year-old quarterback from week 1 had assured you a win with his youthful week 2 performance, but Jimmy Graham sank you again.

Man that WAS-OAK game was *rough*. I went from an 80-something percent chance of winning to flat-out losing thanks to Derek Carr crapping the bed.

I did make some other mistakes, too. But sheesh.

Hah. I think I'm going to go for the record for lowest possible score in a season... [sarcasm] I love it 3 of my bench players outscore most of my lineup [/sarcasm]

Didn't see until too late that Willie Snead wasn't going to make his comeback today and I'm still giving Ned a run for his money.

Was pretty lucky to make the random choice to bench Big Ben and start wentz. Fair difference in points production there.

I hope that I don't regret starting Delanie Walker instead of Jordan Reed this week.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to rename my teams to a Fistful of Suck at this point.. I'm wondering if I can set the record for lowest possible score without abandoning the team..

Yahoo! is keeping track of those ignominious records, too. :(
At 76½ points per week, you are on pace to set the record.

Every player on my bench this week is there because he's on a bye. I hope there aren't any game-time scratches tomorrow. Even then, they're going to have to pull off a miracle.

My team's chances are hanging on the hope that Andy Dalton can out-perform Tom Brady tomorrow.

The talking heads almost all said that Seattle's defense would bottle up the rookie quarterback and make it his worst game of the season. I foolishly believed them.
DeShaun Watson: 40.8 points

Trying to work out who is going to do well each from the other side of the world is interesting to say the least. I’ll take lucky any day of the week.

I'm certainly not complaining about being in first place, but that's been a result of lucky matchups. On a total point basis, my team is only middle of the pack.

I'm working hard for that 74.3 points per week... looking that the numbers, I should be at ~90pts/week just by random luck :P

I'm in an ESPN league with some friends. Every week but one, my opponent has put up the fewest points in the league that week, No wonder I'm 9-0. Everyone brings their D- game against me.

My dilemma this evening: My team needs Antonio Brown to score well tonight. If he's just dressing as a decoy, I could switch to Brandon LaFell, but even a healthy LaFell isn't likely to score more than a 50% Brown. :-?

I was in a totally untenable position. I needed both Carr and the Pittsburgh defense to put up big numbers, which was going to be impossible.
