Bottom dwellers

Well, we're only one game into the contest, and already I'm sitting at the bottom of the pack, with those two dudes from Damn you, Drew Brees, damn you! --MyWikiBiz 11:45, 7 September 2007 (PDT)

Manning vs. Brees

When I selected last year's top two quarterbacks (by yardage) for our first month's Fantasy component, I had no idea that the two of them would be launching the season with a head-to-head matchup. I saw about 15 minutes of the game while working out at the YMCA. Brees didn't look that bad in the first quarter. The final stats suggest he was completely schooled by Manning. Ugh, it's going to be a long September. --MyWikiBiz 11:45, 7 September 2007 (PDT)

We have 17 participants

Our participant count dropped by about 50% from last year. I guess I didn't notify prospects early enough in August. Ah, well -- at least each player's chances to win money have doubled. --MyWikiBiz 11:45, 7 September 2007 (PDT)

Fantasy rosters for October

With October fast approaching, next week we'll be throwing up new players to choose from for the subsequent four weeks. That means two new QBs, RBs, and WRs. If we were to take the league leaders (currently) in each category, that would mean:

  • QBs -- Jon Kitna (Detroit) and Carson Palmer (Cincinnati)
  • RBs -- Willie Parker (Pittsburgh) and LaMont Jordan (Oakland)
  • WRs -- Chad Johnson (Cincinnati) and Randy Moss (New England)

I'm squeamish about having two Bengals in the mix, plus we already started the year out with Chad Johnson. We can always see what develops after Week 4. --MyWikiBiz 06:13, 25 September 2007 (PDT)

We have done Chad Johnson, lets put Randy Moss vs. Roy Williams, or maybe Chris Chambers they have all put up big numbers.
For running backs, the guys at the top could be from one big week and sucking the rest of the time(see Jamal Lewis #3), plus Jordan is going to lose some carries once Rhodes finishes serving his suspension. I'd like to see the rookie face off Marshawn Lynch vs Adrian Peterson (of the Vikings, not the Bears backup). Or maybe the third year running backs Cedric Benson vs Cadillac Williams.
For QB, no offense to the Lions as they are likely to kick my beloved Bears ass this week, but i'd rather match up Tom Brady vs Carson Palmer. Or we could go "battle of the old guy that should retire while they are in Florida" -- Trent Green vs. Jeff Garcia.
Just my thoughts. Great pool so far this year, and I'm not saying that just because my wife is in first place. -- Veste
James, I like your line of thinking. --MyWikiBiz 09:03, 1 October 2007 (PDT)
However, in looking at the rookie RBs, there was just too much "gap" in their numbers -- I think everyone would have picked Peterson. Likewise, too much difference between Moss and Williams, and between Brady and Palmer. So, I've decided to go with QBs Favre and Romo (a compelling story of age vs. youth); RBs Henry and Jordan (another contrast which I'll document by e-mail); and WRs Williams and Cotchery (only 6 yards separating them). --MyWikiBiz 05:51, 2 October 2007 (PDT)
