There were problems across the board. Running through the positions: Daunte Culpepper, with 1 point even against the Titans, is banished from my team. Alex Smith will be my new starter, and I picked up Buffalo QB J.P. Losman for my bench. My running backs still aren’t that strong (top guys score in the mid-twenties), and will be hurt further this week since Shaun’s out with the broken foot. I just plain played the completely wrong wide receivers. (Look at Keyshawn Johnson! Argh!) L.J. Smith played well for being hurt — I’m hoping he keeps hanging on. The Seahawks D sort of fell apart, but at least I didn’t play New England instead… It may be time to consider picking up a new bench D. And Elam did alright, but after this weekend, I dropped Gostkowski for Rian Lindell (also Buffalo).
This weekend I play my boss (who’s loaded up with LaDainian Tomlinson, Laveranues Coles, Donald Driver, etc, and has been scoring in the 90’s). I don’t expect the post-weekend report to be much better next week. At least the Eagles are playing for Monday Night Football!
One thought on “Week Three Results”
TO and Shaun Alexander are on the same team in our league, too. Strange.
Anyhow, that’s who I’m playing this week, which makes ME happy. But good luck to you!
