        It was funny because my buddy came over to watch the Patriots game on Sunday and we were playing each other in the first round of the playoffs. He immediately wanted to check his roster and make sure he had a guy in his line-up and when I tried to check for him on all my laptops, none of them could bring up the Yahoo page. I thought my wireless router had screwed up or something, but apparently it was Yahoo. Luckily for him he had the right guy in anyways (even though he ended up losing anyways!) but it was pretty funny

    Week 16 FAIL: Championship Failures 

    Here are a few players who just didn’t quite live up to expectations this week. Were they over-rated to begin with? Did they just have a bad game? Were they benched because their team was dominating (or getting dominated?) It’s probably just a one week mishap, but if they land on this list a couple weeks in a row, you might start worrying! Anyways, feel free to add to the discussion with your own. Maybe someone that you blame this week’s loss on?

    With championships around the world on the line, a couple superstars decided it was a good day to take the day off. Andre Johnson was a late scratch and Maurice Jones-Drew left fantasy owners high and dry (unless they picked up Rashad Jennings to back him up!) Philip Rivers and the rest of the Chargers played one of their worst games of the season, while Peyton Hillis, Michael Turner and Chris Johnson tried their hardest to (not) reward those who relied on them all season. Anyways, hopefully you still managed to pull off the victory in your league’s championship!

    I’ve included the entire season count of FAIL’s as a separate worksheet in the spreadsheet, so you can click the “Season” tab and see where each player stacks up.

    Anyways, here are the rest of them (and here’s a direct link to the spreadsheet)…

      Got lucky this week! I benched Boldin and Andre (after I found out for sure that he would not be playing). I had Manningham ready to go. Before the early games I was seriously thinking about Jennings, but decided to dance with the player I have. Hillis didn’t hurt me too bad and Freeman came up HUGE!! My biggest disappointment was Welker. Having Woodhead in the lineup helped balance that on out.
      I ended up winning by 19 points!! My first Championship!
      Thanks for all the help this season & have a Happy New Year!

        In my championship game, my buddy had a gut feeling to start Danny Woodhead over Brandon Jacobs and obviously it worked out great for him! Happy new year man

    Week 15 FAIL: Minnesota Vikings 

    Here are a few players who just didn’t quite live up to expectations this week. Were they over-rated to begin with? Did they just have a bad game? Were they benched because their team was dominating (or getting dominated?) It’s probably just a one week mishap, but if they land on this list a couple weeks in a row, you might start worrying! Anyways, feel free to add to the discussion with your own. Maybe someone that you blame this week’s loss on?

    This semi-final week is headlined by a team that tried their hardest to screw as many people in the fantasy football world as possible…the Minnesota Vikings. First Yahoo goes and makes alleged starting quarterback Joe Webb eligible at the wide receiver position, tickling the fancy of team managers looking to sneak attack their way into the championship. The Vikings had plans of their own however. After listing Brett Favre as “Out” earlier in the week, they surprisingly upgrade him to “questionable” the day before the game (after waivers were locked in many leagues.) Those hoping to play Joe Webb immediately start panicking. To make matters worse, the team deactivates star running back Adrian Peterson a couple hours before gametime, screwing over the team managers who weren’t able to secure Toby Gerhart as his hand-cuff ahead of time. Anyways, Favre goes out and gets hurt and Joe Webb doesn’t impress, as the entire team rolls out a mediocre offense and a terrible defense. The Vikings are potentially the worst team in the league right now and have some serious issues heading into next season. FAIL.

    I’ve included the entire season count of FAIL’s as a separate worksheet in the spreadsheet, so you can click the “Season” tab and see where each player stacks up. As usual, drama-king himself, Brett Favre continues to lead the pack!

      The excuse for Boldin should be shared by Vernon Davis. He tried to torpedo my team, but the Bears D/ST (thank you Devin Hester!!) would not let him. Onward to the CHAMPIONSHIP!!!

        The crazy part is that I had both T.O. and Anquan Boldin…but still pulled off the victory due to my dominant running backs. Now that I don’t have to worry about T.O. this week it should be a little easier. What to do with Boldin is still a question though…

        • Hawgman 9:08 am on December 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          My WR crew has Manningham (@ GB but w/o Steve Smith), Welker & Woodhead (@ Fluffalo), Boldin (@ Cleveland), Collie (@ the ER), and Andre Johnson (vs _enver).
          Boldin will be on my bench where he can do the least amount of damage. I have Andre, Welker and Woody in the line-up, but still thinking about Manningham in Woody’s spot just in case the Pats get stopped by the Bills. (take a deep breath & quit laughing!! I just don’t like putting all my eggs in one basket). ;-D

    Week 14 FAIL: Kyle Orton punishes fantasy owners for sticking with him 

    Here are a few players who just didn’t quite live up to expectations this week. Were they over-rated to begin with? Did they just have a bad game? Were they benched because their team was dominating (or getting dominated?) It’s probably just a one week mishap, but if they land on this list a couple weeks in a row, you might start worrying! Anyways, feel free to add to the discussion with your own. Maybe someone that you blame this week’s loss on?

    Week 14 is the first week of the playoffs in most fantasy football leagues, so I’m interested to see who you’re blaming for your quick (or near) departure? This week the fails are again headlined by Kyle Orton and Dwayne Bowe, as they both were out to punish their fantasy owners for no apparent reason (maybe they’re not big on the holidays or something!) Not to be outdone though, whole boatload of receivers ended up with an awesome ONE reception and probably didn’t help your squad.

    I’ve included the entire season count of FAIL’s as a separate worksheet in the spreadsheet, so you can click the “Season” tab and see where each player stacks up. As usual, drama-king himself, Brett Favre continues to lead the pack!

      Cowboys fan here… tough pass defense? really? The reason Celek had 0 catches is b/c it was the Vick, DJax, and Mccoy show. No need to get anyone else involved.

      • Brandon 10:57 am on December 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Hah, that’s why I say “Oddly…” but I guess they only played tough pass defense against players not named DeSean Jackson anyways. Figured I would give him some kind of excuse other than saying “None.”

        ANTI Cowpokes here – but I gotta say I was wishing that someone on the Dallas D would have ballz enough to break that little showboat half. I felt the same way when TO did the thing in the star all those years ago. Break a couple of those cats in two and it will stop. A 15 yard penalty that the D has to pay for is nothing to these “ME-ME-ME” chumps.

      ORTON TRIED TO KILL MY TEAM TWO WEEKS IN A ROW!! I was also fortunate enough to make it the 2nd round of the playoffs, but it was because of D-Mac picking up the slack.
      I am seriously thinking of dropping Orton’s Donkey-Ass and picking up Josh Freeman. I have Big Ben, but his match-ups the next couple of weeks have me a little concerned. I just know that as soon as I do, Orton will go off for 6 TD’s and 500 yards.
      What do you think about Freeman vs Big Ben?

    • Lindsay 1:31 pm on December 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      How much does this hurt Brandon Lloyd going into week 15? I could put in Kenny Britt vs. Houston instead, but can’t tell if it would be worth it.

        Aaand I should have put this in the Orton post below.

      • Brandon 10:12 am on December 15, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I’m not high on Lloyd at this point. Britt is not a sure bet either though, but at least he’s got a MUCH better matchup. Roll with Britt and good luck!

    Week 13 FAIL: Bowe or Orton cost you the playoffs? 

    Here are a few players who just didn’t quite live up to expectations this week. Were they over-rated to begin with? Did they just have a bad game?

    With week 13 being the last of the regular season in many fantasy football leagues, I’m interested in seeing which players you might be blaming for your team missing the playoffs? Was it Dwayne Bowe who followed up several amazing weeks with a goose egg? Maybe it was Kyle Orton who decided he wanted his coach fired? Let’s hear it!

      You guys missed one. Mike Williams of Seattle got injured right away during his game and never returned leaving with a wopping 0 points. I benched Sidney Rice in favor of him. Played Wells over Best too 🙁

      Thank God I was playing the Gore owner and have Foster and Wayne. It was a must win week and the only team in the league that did worse than mine was my opponents lol.

    • Hawgman 4:15 pm on December 7, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      70 points from the starters, 72 points on the bench, needed 75 for a win. Starting QB – Kyle Orton (3 pts), benched QB – Big Ben (16 pts). Starting WR – Manningham (1.3 pts), on the bench – Boldin (12.75 pts). Starting D/ST – Chicago (5 pts), on ht ebench – Cleveland (14 pts). Makes me wanna scream like Charlie Brown!!
      Oh well, still in the playoffs and ready to CRUSH the “competition”

      Orton killed me, but the low scoring affair in Pittsburgh/Bmore didn’t exactly help my chances.

      I ended up 7th in a 12 team league that advanced 6.

      My final team was Orton,Foster,Mendenhall,Djax,M.Wallace,Witten, Boldin.

      Fred Jackson rode my bench until this week when he stinks. Replaced boldin for him.

      My league was pretty interesting: the top team had 1437 points (standard NFL.com rules) and went 10-3
      2nd place only had 1001 and went 9-4.

      I ended up with 1199 and 7th.

      Wanna know what lineup gets you 1437 pts?

      Vick, Hillis, C.Johnson, D.Bowe, B. LLoyd, T.Heap, J.Maclin.
      Started the redskins D all year…

      • Brandon 11:28 am on December 9, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Someone had Vick, Hillis, Chris Johnson, Bowe, Lloyd and Maclin?! That’s insane. Your squad looked pretty awesome too…surprised you weren’t able to crack the top 6 🙁

          Kyle Orton -KILLED ME and my playoff dreams. He cost me the playoffs in two leagues…. 2 points, 2 points. 2 points 2 points 2 points 2 points 2 points

          • Brandon 1:45 pm on December 9, 2010 Permalink | Reply

            He cost me a first round bye, but luckily I was close to the top so I still made the playoffs as the third seed. Orton was a big reason I did so well this year though, so it’s tough to put ALL the blame on him

    • Hawgman 7:25 am on December 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Orton has gotta top this list again for his week 14 “performance”. Good thing I had McFadden in the lineup to take up the slack (and then some!).

      • Brandon 8:24 am on December 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Man, Orton and the Broncos defense tried their hardest to royally screw me in my most important league, but Darren McFadden and Chris Johnson most likely saved the day! There’s no way I start Kyle Orton again and the Broncos defense is the most pathetic thing known to man. How in the world do you allow some third or fourth stringer and Tim Hightower to completely DOMINATE you?!

    • Todd 7:04 am on December 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I started Orton in the first round of the playoffs in my money league. He didn’t really screw me over since my opponent had Rodgers (who still outscored Orton despite missing most of his game). Fortunately most of the rest of his team crapped out as well while I had DJax, Westbrook, Foster, Winslow, Moore and the PIttsburgh defense all have good games. It led to a 68-point beatdown and a trip to the semi-finals where I have to choose between Orton and Freeman.

      • Brandon 11:20 am on December 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I have to decide between Kitna and Freeman (and Orton) so I’ll get back to you once I put up my QB rankings this week. Glad to hear you survived the Orton-storm though 🙂
