Agreed, by mid-season my roster turnover is usually about 50% of the guys I drafted. But still, that usually assumes a solid core of legit players and just churning the bottom half to find the best lineups.

This level of dumpster fire is going to require a frame-off restoration. I have a hard time imagining I'll have more than two of these players left by week 10.

If I get a ridiculously favorable schedule, I might claw up to mid-pack... but if I get a PCS-esque schedule, I'll be lucky to stay above the inevitable abandoned/absentee team.

I made moves this year to try and ensure we don't have any slack jawed yokels messing up the weeks.. so hopefully we have near 100% participation. I booted the people from last year who set it and forgetted it.

So hopefully we have a good competitive year.. there's a trophy on the line!! I got to get pics of it.. last years winner got a new topper.

Coming out the draft like a BEAST!!

(and now losing David Johnson for a while.. F me)

Macho Nacho and PCS looking like a TIGHT race tonight. Cousins really stunk it up.. and that Pittsburgh D was on fire..

Guessing PCS walks away with the win, I'm not sure how San Die.. err LA is going to do against Denver D.

Pissed me off last night watching Rodgers throw that long TD to Jordy and Jordy got way more points for it.

Jordie got more points than Rodgers, but my Seattle D lost points at the same time. So the whole play was basically a wash. I was equally pissed

David Johnson out 8-12 weeks. Fantastic. Why didn't I grab Antonio Brown? Ugh.

Well hey, Nacho, you scored the 4th most points this week (and still lost).. so that's something I thought for sure Allen was going to get a 2nd TD and give you the comeback last night. It was so close to OT too.

Now I have to decide if I keep Johnson or drop him. 8-12 weeks is a long time to rot on the bench..

Nacho! SUB 100 CLUB!!

I'm not even sure what happened to Jordy Nelson, I was facing him in another league and got lucky when he didn't play.

Thielen was bad luck with Bradford a surprise inactive. I'm sure you'll score 200 point when I face you! (And I'll score 201!)

I should have just drafted Chiefs and Raiders players. Crabtree went OFF this week.

Ugh. Sadly, my other league team that I actually did draft didn't do any better. I'm 0-4 through two weeks with no real hope of improving. Unless there are a slew of injuries (to players not on my team) or breakout players that I get lucky and snag, I'm a cellar-dweller just trying to claw up to 6th.

There's been a ton of injuries so far, so play the waiver wire and who knows. I swear my teams look nothing like the ones I draft even by week 5.

Oh I get it. I usually have more add/drops than anyone in every league I'm in. But the cupboard looks bare. By the time I hit on some useful/reliable players, I'll be in a hole I can't dig out of.
