Fantasy Football 2011, Week 6

As frustrating as bye weeks can be for a fantasy manager, there is something more insidious: injuries! It seems as though every time you get your roster just the way you want it (or at least the best you can hope for, considering the players you got saddled with in the autodraft), someone gets hurt. Sometimes it can be an inconvenience for a game or a few weeks; sometimes players get themselves really messed up and their season is over. Those expecting great things from Jason Campbell, Chad Henne  and other high-profile starters must now sift through the waiver wire, hoping to discover an overlooked gem that can help salvage their fantasy season.

Let’s see if injuries hampered my effort this week:

And now, time to hit the waiver wire!

Fantasy Football 2011, Week 5

Bye Weeks have started! In RL, wonderful for the teams (my beloved Browns, for example, didn’t lose), but a terror for fantasy managers. Particularly in larger leagues where reliable replacements can come at a steep price, such as having to cut a decent starter to make room on your roster for the so-so running back to replace Peyton Hillis for a week.

Let’s see how the first bye week treated us:

Yahoo Teams

RTVP League: (3-2) Angus’ No Stars 63, Jayusmagnus’ Legion 50
Chix & Dix League: (4-1) Stratoblasters 146.58, Pat’s Packers 106.54
Purple Pride League: (3-2) 4th And 10 181.74,  BONECRUSHERS 165.46
Panther Power:  (3-2) Tazo Zen 145.32, coyote ugly 187.36
Pros Joes & Schmoes League:  (2-3) The New No. 2 146.31, Project D 106.05

League 337126: (2-3) Ram Air 80.06, Rebels 88.74
League 337241: (2-3) Tazo Zen 87.04, Man of Steel 93.52

ESPN’z #1 League: (1-4) Lehigh Valley Genesis 102, Team Dillon 117
Football Paradise League: (2-3) Vodka Martinis 111, MPLS itchfen 56

Fox Sports Public League 29622: (1-4) Martini Time 82.5, Lost Gonzos 69.9

So I’m a combined 6-4  for the week for my head-to-head contests, and 23-27 for the season.

It would be nice to be at .500 soon!

Fantasy Football 2011, Week 4

My Brownies went down in an ugly defeat at the hands of the Tennessee Titans this past Sunday. As exciting as they looked the first three weeks of the season, that’s how bad they looked against Matt Hasselbeck and company.

Would my fantasy teams fare as badly?
