    Yeah - what's up with that? You playing down to my level or what?

    Of course in the other league so far (KOW) I'm having a dream week.
    I think my role and back up players playing a disproportionate amount of my games so far has played a role. Also I don't have that many games in total from my players this week. I'm gratefull both Webber and Kwame are out (thanks ) otherwise the disparity between the number of games would have been much bigger.

    I think my team will probably pull away tonight though, except if most of them even won't make their averages. I have no reason to believe that though.

    I'm feeling the wrath of the BURN-HAMMER.

    I just can't catch a break. Even on days when I have more players than Burnzone, half my guys are injured and the other half suck.

    No Chauncey, No Brad Miller, No Fransisco Elson, No Toine, and I just picked up an injured Travis Outlaw (hope it's worth the trouble).

    Shocker of the century: I picked up Quinton Ross (who?) on a hunch, and suddenly he's giving me 30 f-point games. He's just a flavor of the week, but hey, I like any flavor that comes off the wire in a league this deep and delivers that kind of action. Look out Quinton, now that your on my team, you're destined sprain your ankle in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...

    I had him for most of the season - he was good for 20-25 per game until the Clips benched him. Then I got Matt Carroll - he's been averaging over 25 for me so I'm fine with that.

    I'm fine taking your table scraps.

    ----

    On another topic, I know for certain that I'm a one-and-done team if I make the playoffs. Of the Games I've won, 3 of my victories were against opponents who weren't rotating daily. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that every team I've faced that has a winning record has beaten me.

    Not a good sign.

    Congrats Mourning. My lowest scoring game of the season - not the direction I want to be going.

    One of my lower scores too, but I will take the "W". I gave up Nelson for Rashard, so in the short term I already made peace with my mind for lower scoring expectations.

    I hope Lewis returns end of february or the beginning of march at the latest. I hope to hit my peak near the play-offs, but injuries, new coaches and their ideas about who and how to play, non-form of players, everything can change.

    Anyway, you played well with what you had, but had a lot of bad luck with Kwame and Webber. Interesting to see what will happen to Webber with regards the 76'-ers btw.

    I'm toast this week if Wade doesn't come back and pick up where he left off.

    Looks like my record is finally starting to fall in line about where it should be. I got lucky playing Shade and Mourning early in the season before either started to really come on. Lucky x 2, as of right now, there's only two winning teams left on my schedule. But I won't win anything in the playoffs unless I really shake things up.

    Man, It's really hard to play against the Hoopstown Hustlers.

    Half of those players are Pacers. I don't want them to score many points but if they don't that means the Pacers will probably lose.

    The sad thing is, you're still going to beat me because I'm still without Wade.

    I don't have anyone else out, but my players are having a pretty crappy week so far on top of everything else.

    I asked if you had another Wade that was out because Dwyane has played their last two......

    Wade was still registering a 0 for me until last night, so if he came back in the prior game I didn't get any fantasy points for it.

    I still think I'm too far down to win this one, especially with Collison racking up points like he's Michael Jordan or something.

    His first game back was Sunday, which counted in the prior period.

    What a shrewd draft choice that Nick Collison was........

    Well, at least I was able to make it somewhat interesting. A few of my players played well under their averages this week, so that certainly didn't help.

    Ugh... Mo Williams is going to be out for sometime. I hope I can make the game tight the coming week, but it's going to be tough to accomplish that, that's for sure.

    How will the trade affect the fantasy value of the players involved? I for one am hoping for increased minutes for Ike...

    In the mean time, it looks like BC is headed for his first loss of the season (nice work, Texans!), leaving Burnzone as the lone perfect record holder. Also keeping an eye on the matchup between Mourning and MR. Expecting a close finish there...

    Also take a look at my 8 latest moves, illustrating my confusion sowing strategy:

    Nah, this one I am going to lose. He has Marion amongst others that's going to play for him, while my best player is Ruben Patterson.

    But, it's ok, because I calculated this as a "L" when I traded for an injured Lewis. I think I did pretty good considering "Mo" was also out .

    Anyway, congrats MR! .

    Wow, I actually posted the most points last week. Wade went absolutely bonkers, and Steven Hunter really came through nicely as my 3rd center off of wavers. Another small move or two and I may actually be able to surprise some people come playoff time.

    You know, I'm getting really annoyed at how many high scoring close games I lose.

    My team is better than my record, but now I'm just hoping to make the playoffs.
