You can never have enough depth. Or enough luck.

Yep. My bad luck this year is I am on vacation without my laptop because one of the kids broke it by stepping on it. Even so, I managed to avoid slowing down the draft during the two-day drive to here thanks to my wife doing more than half the driving.

However, it is harder to adjust strategy on the fly due to the higher quality of the drafting this year without the bot. Love it!

I'd like to thank Julian Edelman for forcing me to draft a NEW WR3 in the round that I wanted to go QB, leaving me with Fantasy Starter Andy Dalton. Blech.

One of the strategies I was strongly considering was to wait on quarterback and pair Dalton with someone else. In the end, because so many sites were identifying the value of Dalton with his healthy receivers this year, I was concerned someone else would grab him before me. So, congratulations on getting him. After this past weekend's games, I am feeling less comfortable with my quarterback strategy. Hope those two guys get their act together by week 1.

Sorry that you lost a good player. McDuke also got hit, which seems to be a continuation of the bad luck with injuries that he had last year.

Good luck. With your track record, I'm sure you will have no problem recovering from this bump in the road.

Yep, if I didn't have bad luck I'd have no luck at all. :(

Good draft all and good luck this season.

I'm starting to regret passing on Zeke. I may have made the same wrong call as last year--avoiding him because of possible suspension. Would certainly affect my drafting of a McFadden. McCoy playing for a losing team also has me worried, and I found myself having to draft his handcuff. Yuk. Will see how much I can recover through the waiver wire.

Don't beat yourself up, Hogs. You weren't the only one to pass on Zeke. I was surprised that he fell to the 2/3 turn, but this must be a very conservative group. I don't blame anyone for passing as 6 games is a lot to miss.

I left 49 points on the bench last night and got a deuce from Hogan. Gotta love this game.

Strange. While arranging my waiver claims, system dropped McFadden who I plan to drop this evening but did it did not register the person I wanted to claim this evening. No harm as long as McFadden isn't declared Elliot's back up today. :)

Left way too many points on the bench this week. :(

I don't think you can fault yourself. There's no way you could've known to start Charles Clay over Greg Olsen, or start Allen Hurns over Antonio Brown.

I squeaked out the win, but I got lucky, because I ignored my head telling me that Adam Thielen would do ok without a QB, and that Crowell was a better play than Ingram. I have to quit listening to my gut; it leads me astray every time.

I'd like to propose that, regardless of record, Harbaugh Effect is at least relegated next year. He has not logged into the site for 3 weeks.

I hope it's not for a personal reason and that the owner is well. But barring extenuating circumstances, it's disrespectful in this sort of league to quit before Week 1 without even a word.

Certainly puzzling. Makes it to Great White this year. Drafts a Defense and Kicker in rounds 11 and 12, and the system makes his last three picks. Logs on Sept 6 to set his week 1 line up and hasn’t logged on since. I would assume it is personal, perhaps hurricane related. I too hope he is well and that he we let us know when he is able to.
