    Last night, in another league where I had Aaron Rodgers left and my opponent had Green Bay's D, I was down 82.02-82.20 at the end of the game.

    Because of that HORRENDOUS call-- and more specifically, the required extra point to make it 14 points on the D and not 13-- I actually WON my match 82.02-79.20.

    As a Packer and NFL fan, I was outraged by the call. But as a fantasy owner... O:)

    Anyone else affected by that crap? @xblackout I know you had Rodgers in our league and squeeked by a win...

    But @tom! The Pats are 1-2! Your reverse jinx is working!

    lol, that's the silver lining. i'm actually only in one other league and i have brady and welker in that league too. but i squeaked out my first win in that league this week.

    should have reverse jinxed the cardinals though, apparently.

    well. this just goes to show that you really don't have a clue what's going to happen this season. i go from the worst team in the league for almost two straight weeks to breaking well over 100. oy.

    well, not playing dennis pitta was certainly the right choice this week. and if i regret playing flacco over peyton then oy... i'll have lost a REALLY good performance.

    the no PPR is really hurting me.

    seems a little nitpicky when you're winning by 63 points.

    i did notice that. still you'll have over a hundred, which isn't a bad week win or lose. and your opponent would get ppr too were it in place, so the difference would be negligible.

    other than that two of my wrs would have had double points, which would have been useful. that's why i like PPR more, because it means that you can use possession receivers, unlike in this setup. it's just more consistent.

    and i MIGHT get over a hundred. i have a kicker. you never know what's going to happen with a kicker. at all.

    i disagree that it's more consistent. you should get rewarded for moving the ball, not just touching it. for that to be consistent you'd then have to give a running back a point every time they receive a handoff. i have awesome ppr guys on my team, but i'm still glad we don't have the rule.

    that makes absolutely no sense tom. i didn't understand why you said that the first time, and i still don't. why would you have to give a point to a RB every time they get the ball handed to them. catching the ball actually takes skill, taking a handoff does not. at all.

    uh, not always. if someone catches a dinky screen pass and then gets tackled for a four yard loss it really doesn't require much skill. i don't think someone should get a point for that, and it's why i don't like the rule. if someone has a lot of receiving yards or touchdowns they are helping their team and that's also reflected in their fantasy score. if someone catches 14 passes for 24 yards they really aren't doing much to help their team and shouldn't be rewarded with inflated fantasy stats.

    unless every one of those 14 catches was for a first down on third down. or even half of them. that's part of what a possession receiver does to help their team. they don't get the explosive plays, they move the chains when they have to be moved.

    i don't think we're ever going to see eye to eye on this one.

    yeah, that goes back to my point about running backs. they don't get extra points for gutting out a tough third and short. you wouldn't want a good short yardage back to get extra points so they could be more level with the truly elite backs in the league. why do that for receivers?

    how about a point for first downs then? could you get behind that?

    gotta get nine points out of andre johnson tonight if i want to hand tee her first loss. adds a little interest to a game i otherwise really don't care about.
