He looks flat out great.  This is a nice trio....  If they had a TE to open up the middle of the field, they could be a seriously scary team.  Dak can't be held to blame for the lack of WR's he had earlier in the year.

I must have missed people saying he was a RB2.  I got him as a serviceable RB3.  He has talent, but needs 20 carries a game for it to come out.  His YPC was the same as Lewis' before the game on Thursday.  I point that out because the TN line has been injury laden this season and nobody was going to do much until they were mostly healthy.  I'm not sure why there is any Henry hate in here.  He is what he is, a guy that you use to cover bye weeks and injuries.  He always has the potential to go off, but that potential will lose you more games that it wins.  That Lewis signing was a joke.  The Titans didn't need Lewis, they needed a veteran QB who could teach MM how to play the game. 


In Topic: Fantasy Football isn't all luck they say?

Yesterday, 06:41 PM

I've always thought this;  Fantasy Football does require a lot of luck to win a league.  That said, the same people make the playoffs in my leagues almost every year.  I'd say it's 50/50 on the luck vs. skill debate.  If it were "all" luck, then the turnover amongst the playoff teams would be much higher.  I think it boils down to how you describe luck.  If I do the research and start someone over someone else, and the player I started has a great day, some will still say that is luck.  I do not.  I think it's research combined with luck, but not just luck.  I think good research can give you a 10% edge, possibly a bit more, over other owners.  It isn't much, but that edge is what keeps the same owners repeatedly winning year after year. 


In Topic: Giants beat Da Bears

Congrats to Weepaws for picking the Giants this week.  In one of his posts, he mentioned possibly taking the moneyline in that game as well.  I seriously considered putting money on the Giants, thinking they were being overlooked, but didn't go through with it.  Woulda, shoulda, coulda.  Still kicking myself for not betting this game.
