Speaking of solid pick ups, I had an excellent week with the waiver wire. I picked up Wynn and Wright on the recommendation of the experts at Yahoo and was more than happy with there performance. It went beyond their numbers, because with 2 more solid RBs in my stable, I knew I would have a much better chance for a trade. And with Todd Heap’s continued useless play and injury based bench performances, I had to find a new TE. I decided to target the top 5 TEs in the league, felling confident that I had enough solid players that I could swing one of them. I didn’t get any bites at first, but the owner of Dallas Clark seemed interested in working a trade. If not this week, perhaps sometime soon.
While I was able to put up another week of solid numbers (75 points in almost all you ever need in our league to win from one week to the next, unless you play the all Pats team of course), I think I made some mistakes with my roster this week. To start, I played Rivers even though I knew he was going to have a tough time against Oakla--------say what? How did Rivers do so pathetically bad this week? Not to take anything away from
Another mistake I made this week was with Portis and
Despite my problems at TE and QB as well as my numerous misjudgments, I somehow one the week, pushing my record to 5-1. This was the best start I have ever had in Fantasy Football. For my money, it doesn’t get any better than this. I had a wining record and I beat the trash talking Champ. But it was not over yet. I had definitely holes to fill, so it was time to start seriously working on a trade. At the very least, I had to get a new TE. If I was really lucky, I would also add a new starting QB to replace Rivers. Heck, if I was lucky, I might even be able to dump him on some unsuspecting sap for a more useful player.
