I'm a Cowboys fan, but this year I decided that Romo was not going to be in my fantasy team. Too much heartbreak and meltdowns over the last couple of years to justify keeping him. How does he reward me? By having a pretty good game against the Giants and having my new QB (Eli) choke. I've never been more conflicted!!

Statistically, he had a fantastic year last year, but the Cowboys lost mainly due to an offensive line that could not protect Romo or create running lanes for running backs, untimely and costly injuries, inability for the defense to create turnovers or sack the opposing QB.

I did pick up DeMarco Murray, who was doing great last year until he broke his ankle and was out for the season. He had about 130 yards rushing last night, but no scores.

Edited to add:

Look for somebody in the TNFFL to pick up Dallas' Ogletree very quickly.

Also, Eli will win games for the Giants, but he will not rack up spectacular Fantasy Football numbers like Aaron Rogers, Michael Vick etc. who can (and will) routinely have their team scoring above 30 points with 4 or 5 TD passes.

Week One tomorrow (first kickoff 1100 EDT). That is in 16 hours . . . it's like we are in the gate at the Indy 500, all set and ready to go for the longhaul. Good luck to all!

I am open to trading Romo. I had Eli last year. I'd roll with him again. I hate both the Qb's I got autodrafted. Both born losers.

Thanks but no thanks! The lesson from the last couple of seasons has sunk in: sooner or later Romo will implode. If he doesn't I'll celebrate as a cowboys fan, and it'll make losing in fantasy football easier.

Eli is a winner. I wanna keep him ;)

OK - you've got my interest. I am interested in losing one old QB that is immobile and whose offensive line is also old and pourous causing that old QB intense pain each and every game. But, every now and then, they'll play a patsy and he'll look better than Tom Brady. He is "The Rapist" (Big Ben of Pitt). If you are interested in getting him from me in a trade, let me know.

Chicago plays Green Bay tonight (16 hours from now). If you have any Bears or Packers you are wanting to play TNFFL this week, you've got 16 or so hours to get them into your starting lineups.

Eli Manning,

Elite QB in the 4th quarter. Guy goes from like 8 fantasy points to over 30 in 7 minutes.......he is going to do it all year. Top 5 fantasy qb this year mark my words. I had Cam newton and Eli last year was a great problem to have.

One of my starting players was listed as "questionable" right up to kickoff time. Then, the Yahoo FFL news said he was playing, so I kept him in the starting lineup - and he didn't play (0 points). However, I still managed to get a little over 110 points this week . . . but that's not enough to beat an opponent that racked up 151 points!

Time to step in and manage! I got two wins from doing nothing, but it did not carry through into week 3. :P
From now on I will not let the "out"-players play.

Vick played for me yesterday and (once again) had a horrible game (two fumbles). But, my opponent had Romo, who threw one INT and also fumbled twice to even things up between us.

Well, Romo faced what is undoubtedly one of the best defensive fronts in the NFL with a makeshift offensive line that, when it wasn't getting called for false starts, was allowing defensive players in easily to hammer him.

So only 9+/- points from being the top scoring team in the league (already being held together with spit and baling wire), yet the team with the highest scores AGAINST.

Yup, the story of every one of my leagues in every year I've "played" Fantasy Football. :angry2:

My team was projected to score 123 last week, but barely broke 80. This is by far not an uncommon happening so far. I think a team name change is in order.

Better than having the opposing team score 163 against you... I think my team is cursed.

Two weeks ago, I scored in the low 120s (not a bad game at all!), but my opponent scored 151.

True, but 0-4 hurts!!!

Speaking of hurt, and this is probably stupid of me, Dwight, your team is going up against mine and you have 3 players starting on bye weeks.
