The question of the day... Go with Whitehead or put Lawler on your roster? Both are inexpensive options with potential for large returns on investment.

I've been struggling with Whitehead in lieu of Woli to upgrade my RB situation (using the cash difference on a RB)... hard to say where the hot hand may be with us this week... which you know what?  that's a good thing from a Bomber perspective...

Whoops! I see you did not make the switch.

yeah, last week was a rough one for me, to say the least... I mean I got thumped! lol...

however, I'm liking my chances this week... currently sitting 12th in one league and 13th in the other, but currently only 30 pts out of the lead... the good thing though, I still have 5 guys playing tomorrow... I think the top 6 in both of the leagues only have 2 playing tomorrow, every one else has only 2 or 3 as well except for I believe Donny, he has 4 to play, but he's only 7 pts ahead of me right now...

I don't know how many times I added and subtracted Lawler from my line up over the last 24 hours, but I'm sure glad I ended up with him on my roster... but I did screw up this week and didn't get my roster built until Friday and missed out on any Calgary or Toronto players... I would have taken BRESCACIN, he's been really solid when he's played... oh well... I feel good about my roster, all except my QB... I went with Fajardo again this week in order to make budget...  we'll see how that works out for me...

It is fun... but it always bugs me a bit (ok, a lot) when I pick teams (cfl pickems) and players (tsn fantasy) that I think will do well, even though as a Bomber fan I want them to fail.  Then when they fail, I don't know whether to be miffed or happy.  What's more important?  My fantasy rating or us getting the cup?

I've decided the cup is more important, obviously, but it still irks me.   Cheesy Cheesy

For instance, being wrong about the EDM/MTL game is great for WPG.  Bad for my fantasy picks.  Same with CGY/HAM game.

I love cheering for the underdog (i.e. MTL) but I fill my roster with EDM guys...

Well, at least this past week would have been a great time to be a "homer".  And I didn't pick a single WPG player!  First time I've ever done that in 3 years, I think.  Lawler was value pick of the week for sure.

I know what you mean... I can't bring myself to pick a player that is playing against the Bombers because I can't bring myself to root for the guy, lol... but I love playing it, and it really makes the other games that I would already watch, even more entertaining... win, win!  Grin

Yes, it's kind of sad, but lately I find myself counting the fantasy points running total in my head all game long for my WRs and RBs.  My WR gets a catch and 10 yards, weeee, I just got 1+1 points.  My head-total is usually pretty close to the final one.  On second thought... maybe I should get my head examined.  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

well... after a couple horrible weeks, it has lost its shine for me... the problem with these leagues I find is that if you aren't near the top, what's the use?  After week 5 or 6, it gets kinda blah if you are middle of the pack or worse...

I've been spinning my wheels with mediocre scores these past few weeks.

Sad

One way or another I'll be shaking the coons out of the tree this coming week. Hopefully the ground's not too hard if I turn out to be one of them myself.

all I can say is you better not let up, but I know I won't, lol... there is only reason to ever play anything, and that's to win! lol...  Grin

I could have picked up a little more ground on you this week if I haven't fooled myself into selecting a defense... I pick them, they fail, I drop them, they get hot again, lol...

It can be a lot of work, and I'm not used to that for no return... Wink  OK, its not REALLY a lot of work, but enough to require a benefit to do it...
