@elimanningface Dragontrainer is Sammydog Jr. She’s not on the forums (her choice, not mine). But I will pass on any recommendations you have or you can contact her through ESPN. She definitely needs a tight end.
@sammydog01 She may need more than that, lol. I’m not inferring anything but was she one of the auto draft teams? I’m trying to understand the drafting of a suspended player (or maybe Snead wasn’t suspended at the time of the draft) and no backup QB.
@elimanningface She auto drafted. Me too. I also have one suspended player and had to pick up a backup quarterback. This is her second year so she’s still learning. I’m here for the smack talk. We both belong in a beginner league but it didn’t happen that way this year.
@sammydog01 you guys will be fine!
Sorry for all the somewhat neutral/positive comments. I believe there is an indirect ratio between the amount of smack talk spoken vs. team success. This is why any team with Josh Norman will not win a Super Bowl.
@sammydog01 TEMPER EXPECTATIONS! They were playing against the 49ers… All stats from last night’s game are moot. Against any half-way-decent team, they’d all muddle like they’ve been doing (except Hyde and Gurley, who are the only real bright spots in their offenses).
@elimanningface We could use a roll call. Anyone want to claim a team that has a name other than your username? Mine is obvious. Dragon trainer is my daughter. Shrek is my son who goes by @spcial_snwflake.
Dear Deshaun Watson and Lamar Miller- you guys are the best bench players ever! Deshaun- I totally believed in you, just not enough to put you in for Philip Rivers. If you two keep it up I may put you on my active roster- it will probably be the week you both tank.
@metaphore We are bad at shit talk. Hey, you won but still suck. Is that better? (And I hope you find a decent quarterback for the next couple of weeks- you might want to ask @emilyap if you can borrow one.) (And congratulations!)
@elimanningface I would have given up all of Dion Lewises points to see Tom Brady’s face at the end of that game. I hope I can find a video. (PS The Patriots were my home team when I went to that other school but I will never root for them.)
@sammydog01 started off my day trying to figure out how did you gain an additional 20 points on me when it was just down to the two NE RBs? Then I see it. Jarvis freakin’ Landry. Ughhhh!!!
Your fandom is just way too all over the map to keep up. As a Jets fan, its nice to read you weren’t ever a Patriots fan but as a fantasy football player who is currently being pummeled by you, I’m pretty apathetic about trying to understand it at the moment.
I wore my Dolphins hat on Saturday. Someone asked me if I was a Dolphin fan. I didn’t have the heart to tell her that Lids had NFL hats 2 for ten bucks last year and only the crap teams were left, so I said “kind of”. My Miami player scored his season high fantasy points yesterday.
Congrats to @sammydog01. If the other thread is any indication, she is in a bit of a funk. Hopefully beating a superior GM this weekend to earn a spot in the Meh Fantasy Football championship will help lighten her mood. One would think that should be the responsibility of her kids and partner however, I think we would all agree, we live in a time when it isn’t safe to assume anything. Congrats @sammydog01! You know how to pick’em!!
@elimanningface Thanks for your concern over my holiday first world problem temper tantrum. My family members have learned to back away slowly without making eye contact until the shrieking stops.
And thanks for congratulating me. It makes it impossible to give you shit about losing. Well played.
Now I just need to beat Team Meh who dominated the season with Antonio Brown. Wait, you say Antonio is injured? That’s really too bad- I love that guy. I’m sure @woodhouse handcuffed Juju Smith-Schuster just in case.
/giphy evil laugh
@sammydog01 I’m not taking anything away from your win or ability but who could have predicted (and started) Jarvis Landry having his best weeks maybe ever and Robbie Gould putting up QB1 type numbers? And now Brown is out just as MVP talk for him was ratcheting up. Some people just have all the luck…except when it comes to baking cookies
…and fruit bars
…and remembering friends’ children
…and making reasonable holiday postal deadlines.
@elimanningface True, luck is a huge player in this thing. But don’t dis my man Jarvis- they said he is the last player in the league with at least 5 receptions in every game. His lowest score was 8 points when Cutler was out, his average is 16, and he had three games over 20 points in the first half of the season. I love you Jarvis.
My number one draft pick, OBJ, went out for the season after game 5. My rookie quarterback, Deshaun Watson (who I picked up in September) went out for the season in game 8. I miss you Deshaun. That also took the value of Will Fuller (averaging about 20 points per game) out of the picture too.
Robbie Gould, my last minute addition? Total luck. I love kickers- their scores are so random. And yeah, I have made 34 transactions and yet almost every guy I play was chosen by a computer on draft day. Thanks, computer. I love you too.
