Never Trust A Guy Named Marion
The most frustrating thing about fantasy football is that you can lose in the playoffs even when, on paper, you have a really talented team. That was my case yesterday, as I was cursed by Marion Barber III posting three lousy points for my squad, and the New York Giants defense also failing to show up.
I love fantasy football, but sometimes it stinks.
Overall, I can't be too upset - my team looked horrible a few weeks ago, and I am happy to have made it this far. Joseph Addai is a great player to have, but even he's been inconsistent week to week (really, you could only muster THAT against the Raiders, Joe?)
This season has been interesting because it's the first in a long while that there haven't been at least a handful of running backs who dominate each and every week. In fact, the only players I could have said that about at all were Tom Brady and Randy Moss, and yesterday proved that even they take weeks off (sad for their owners that it happened in Week 15.)
It probably makes for a more competitive sport when there isn't such disparity, and it will make drafts next season complete crapshoots, which is also fun.
But for now, I guess I just have to enjoy the games on their own. More later on this, including the best 49ers game I've watched in years.
