Don't get me wrong, I'm a 49ers fan, I love Randy Moss being a weapon on our team. I want him to revive his career. He was brought to San Francisco to help stretch the field and relieve coverage on both the other receivers and to help open up the run game coverage. That's Crabtree was a lot more open than usual. Moss also caught all 4 passes that went his way. But that is the other concern; he was only targeted 4 times.
When he is only on the field for 1/3 of the snaps, there are concerns from a fantasy standpoint. (21-of-62 snaps). Mario Manningham played 29 snaps. I just need to see what his role is in the future first, and see if he is on the field for more snaps moving forward, before starting him for fantasy relevance. I'd love to have him stashed on my bench to see if he turns into a fantasy gem. But as far as Week 2 is concerned, if I had him, he'd still be on the bench.
I could REALLY complicate things with drama and bench Rivers and start Flacco so we face each other in the same game, hoping he never hands the rock off and plays in a shootout from always a few points behind Cinci.
But I won't. I (sort of) trust in Rivers. Although I am very intrigued by this new no-huddle offense Flacco is going to be spearheading, I'm going to hate myself if Flacco goes off and Rivers throws INTs. But when you crunch the numbers, 97% of the so-called-experts will start Rivers over Flacco's 3% this week. So will I.
I lost my week 1 game but appear to have won a strategic victory via CJ Spiller
God damn it. Hate myself. If I started Flacco instead of Rivers I would've won by about half a point. Fuck the experts, should go with my gut instincts more. Oh well. I've never won a week 1 matchup in my history of FF, ever, so not really that mad that I lost this year's opener too. I'll get my shit together as the season progresses.
I actually prefer to lose week 1 because then you get the better waiver number to pick up the people that look like they are poised for break out years.
Did you guy see the 'game recaps' in our Yahoo league? It's kind of funny and stupid, all at the same time.
"VanDownByTheRivers Regret Tracker
Left C.J. Spiller on the bench, where he scored the sixth-most points in the league and beat his projected point total by 350.1%, the fifth-highest percentage in the league."
On Like Ndamukong was not able to cover the 8.29-point spread in the win."
I won my first fantasy game ever! haha it's sad how excited I got.
I am trying to pick up Ogletree this week... I need some depth in that position!
Wait, so why is Flacco on anyone's team right now? Wasn't he dropped last week by the guy who picked up Ogletree?
The game recaps are awesome. I agree with all of this:
Lord Humungus Tramples Sasha Grey CreamPies, Establishes Early-Season Dominance
Lord Humungus annihilated Sasha Grey CreamPies 141.26 - 81.72 while also putting up the highest point total this week.

Haha where are the game recaps in Yahoo Fantasy??
Hold on, how did VanDownByTheRivers pick up those players yesterday when they should've been on waivers since we changed it to Game Time?
^ Was curious about that as well.
No it's all legit. Those waivers processed early this (Tuesday) morning. Game Time - Tuesday is our setting.
Another fucking Yahoo problem, will be taken care of by me. Pretty tired of this shit.
Engineering verified this issue at about 1am PT this morning, and started working on resolving it. By 2am PT, the issue was closed as resolved. Engineering reupdated each league player pool to correctly lock players. They also identified the source of the issue, and fixed the issue from ever occuring again.
Unfortunately, this offers little help for leagues where a team was able to take advantage of this early morning error.
You can use Commish Tools > Edit Rosters to reverse any add/drops.
My apologies that I can't offer a less manual solution. Hopefully, there were not too many impacted leagues based on this 2 hour outage."
this is just fucking silly, please don't blow up my inbox again
Can someone address why Flacco is not available?
Besides Aphxtwinin, Boyz II Mendenhall would have been defeated by nine other teams this week.
Here we go again. Nice to see that nothing has changed from last season.
This recap thing is amazing. Even though this week I'm on the negative insulting end of it.
Fucking lost by a point with Baltimores defense crushing the overrated Bengals. Well now I can pick up Olgetree and ride his ass into the championships. ;)
At least my Skins looked pretty good beating up on the Saints. Holding Brees to under 50% completion rate is pretty fucking solid. Scoring 40 points for the first time in over 5 years was nice to watch too.
Are you sure you want Ogletree.
Good week for football.
I win in both Fantasy FB leagues, and Chargers win too. :cool:
The other league I'm in that was on Yahoo moved to ESPN this week. Yahoo took the chat option out of the stat tracker and we could not tolerate such a stupid decision.
Ogletree will now disappear.
