I know that feeling. I had McAllister getting me nothing while DeShawn Foster was sitting on my bench.  ::)

I have McAllister in my other league as well.  I also have Shaun Alexander, who I decided to bench since I heard he wasn't playing.  Well, he did.  Didn't exactly have a huge game, but could have done better than the Duece.  Hopefully Westbrook can come through tonight and have a decent game, he's my third RB in that league.  Seems like a lot of fairly high profile injuries thus far this year.....Stephen Davis, Charles Rogers, Duece McAllister, Kellen Winslow, Tommy Maddox, etc.

Nothing is bad until a High Profile RB goes down for the year, its been a while too (Edgerrin in 2001?) so there should be one coming.  I can still remember watching my seasons go down the drain with Terrell Davis and Edgerrin James clutching their knees

Well then, I guess I've been lucky as I've been barely avoided disaster for 2 weeks straight. Last week its Chris Brown with a sprained ankle, and this week Duece has the same thing happen. How close was I to losing not 1 but 2 of my starting RBs for long periods of time. Bad enough I've already lost a WR.  >:(

In a solid effort to jinx myself entirely, I'm not terribly afraid of an injury to a single player.  I've got some pretty nice backups at all positions, except maybe TE. 

That said, I would hate to lose Curtis Martin right now :o

Yet unless Terrel Owens can come up with 3 more TD's and a bunch of yardage tonight, you're still going to beat me.  :(

And to think my other kicker scored like 11 points... but the one I started got me 2.

Neither of my RB's or my reciever who's already gone have scored a single TD - although Keyshawn's lame ass got tackled TWICE at the one yard line.   >:(

That's exactly why I haven't said anything about how it looks like I'll get my first win this week. All TO needs is 3 TDs, he doesn't even need any yds, and you'll beat me. And against the Vikes D, that certainly is possible.

Experienced that last week when neither of my RBs or my WRs scored me a TD. Sucks doesn't it?  >:(

Now is when the league will get interesting. Starting with week 3, teams now have Bye weeks - so some of our second string bench players will be getting the start... God help us all  ;D

Yeah, that was pretty funny, I was watching that game with some friends who happen to be Cowboy fans, and one of them is in a fantasy league at his job and has K.J. on his team, and he just kept screaming every time he got tackled at the one.  ;D

Yeah I think he needs 3 TDs and about 15 yards or so (which unless you're Jerome Bettis, if you score three times you'll get).

The worst part is that my 2 RB's (Davis and Henry) put up 250 yards between the both of them - and no scores...

Such is life in Fantasy Football...you rarely put out your best team and there is some luck involved with injuries

I hope the Vikings win tonight, but wouldn't mind terribly if they benched Moss for a game (Nicklab). 

Think it's safe to say that my matchup with Famine is a reasonable precursor to our meeting at Celebration. :-*

What a strange world Fantasy Football is...

The starters for my two FF teams were basically identical (seven common players between the two teams), yet it looks like I am going to WIN in one league and lose the other.  Not only that, but I'll probably end up 0-2 in one league and 2-0 in the other so far despite having basically the same team!   :-\
