Frosted Flakes: Fantasy Football Failure

New, 9 comments

We are only 3 weeks in, but things aren’t looking good.

This week I’ve really been feeling the woes of being a poor Fantasy Football manager.

The season started well, I got first pick in the draft and won my first game by many points. I was feeling really good about myself.

Then, the second week came and the shit talking I was doing to my brother turned out to be a bad idea. The points were no where near where I thought they’d be. Needless to say, I lost.

On Wednesday of last week I remembered that I needed to check my lineup and get ready for the new week. But I quickly forgot and soon came Thursday. Thursday morning before work I finally remembered to look. My hopes were crushed.

You remember that first draft pick, it was Christian McCaffrey. I was sad to see he was out for 4-6 weeks. My other running backs to replace him weren’t great, so I bid on James Robinson.

I didn’t get a chance to check if I got Robinson until later in the day. I told myself when I got home I’d look, but I didn’t remember until 7:30. He didn’t have a game until 8. I was going to sneak it in.

Nope.

It turns out that was 8 Eastern Time and I was too late. James Robinson got 30 points last week. That was a gut punch.

While feeling sorry for myself, I also noticed that DeVante Adams, who had been so successful in week one, was doubtful.

Then, my defense got 0 points.

I think it may all be karma, because I should’ve picked up Rex Burkhead instead. Sigh.

So here I am licking my wounds and crying to you. Lucky you.

Now on to Flakes.
