I'm ten seconds from panic here.

QB: Teddy Bridgewater, Marcus Mariota  (Tony Romo, Brock Oswieler, Paxton Lynch) 

I'm actually ok with my QBs as I've always liked to have a good stable of mediocre guys I can play matchups with. I took a huge gamble 'cause I think Romo has a six game stretch to end the season in him and Lynch will be starting by playoff time. My biggest fear is a very possible Mariota injury.

That may not be your biggest fear...

Sign #2 - I'm willingly starting the Browns defense against you. I'm betting they nearly have the talent of the Youngstown State defense that flummoxed Carson Wentz in college. 

If starting the Browns defense and Bengals 7th string TE is wrong, I don't want to be right.

I want to continue to rib you for this - but I know that each word I type builds negative karma against me. I'm pretty sure that you'll get about 30 points between those two at this point.

I love Spencer Ware. 

If you put up 200 points against me in week 1, I'm switching you back out for AutoBluray, just a heads up. It's good to be a commissioner with no ethics.

AutoBluray just beat Whiskeyjack in the admittedly crapshooty Thunderdome this year, FYI. That guy might be better at Fantasy Football than I am.

Fully approve of all references of the Dreadfort team to now be the TraderApes. It's like the Potomac River Basic Indigenous Persons but way funnier and less obnoxious (because TMQ - duh).

Everything broke right this week - now I just need that to happen every week. :P

 

Sent a few of you messages about trades - definitely considering and contemplating.  Thanks all!

Overall, AB is always a nice get.  This trade also makes Jace's RBs fairly terrifying (Elliot, DJ, and CJA) which may overcome the QB 'situation' (which is much better than the 'situation' that the TraderApes currently has ;) ).

Man, you walk away for 12 years, come back, and things haven't changed.

Ser Paladin, there's a blast from the past. One of the original Experts League members. What happened to you man? Felt like you dropped off the face of the earth. IIRC you signed up for another season of experts but when the draft came around that year, you'd vanished. 

My theory was you'd been kidnapped by the Yakuza. Confirm or deny?

Yakuza would have been a good story, but I switched clients and didn't have daytime free-time anymore. And my wife and I had twins, so I didn't have nighttime free-time anymore. Or, you know, sleep. Went from 12 fantasy leagues to just 1.

But 6 years ago, I was half of a fantasy football radio show in New Jersey for the couple years the local ESPN was willing to run it. Whenever anyone talked about their 10 team leagues and thin waiver wires, I was able to talk about the league I was in for a while which started 2 QBs, 3 RBs and 4 WRs, and how you had to know every player. So you guys were in my heart.

That is too cool.  Great to see you SerP.  Gotta agree.  After expanded roster, playing 10-team standard seems like wading in a kiddie pool.

Hey Jaime - could we update rosters to reflect Hugor and I's trade? I would be starting Olsen and he would put in Jimmy G for RGIII and Ebron. Thanks!
