The NFL football season opened up this weekend and I tell you what, if you had David Oliver banking on you, you were out of luck.
The season started off with a resounding THUD for me in fantasy football as well as it did for my team the Miami Dolphins. At least the Dolphins were in it until the end, I think my week was done before any of my players were out of the first half of their respective games.
My team has all of a sudden been depleted with injuries, first and foremost, my star quarterback Tom Brady is out for the season, Aub-Rida hit me up while I was at Disney and told me that and I couldn't believe it. Where do I go from there? This is two seasons in a row my starting QB goes down in week one.
Willis McGahee doesn't take a snap, Dallas Clark goes down in the first quarter and Jamal Lewis' hamstring has him running so timid through the hole that I feel I can lay a good pop on him and he'd go down.
I had one double digit scorer and that was my "steal" of the draft, Chris Johnson of the Titans, who scored 11pts, but he was on the bench. Bad General Managing skills. It's week two and I'm already scouring the wavier wire for players, it's not looking good, but at least its early.
I got trounced by my best friend Kelvin Doyle aka "Big K", 83-35, I'm glad I am overseas so that I don't have to hear from him or from Murph because his team is the Jets and they beat the Dolphins, so being in Europe is my saving grace, hopefully they will be on to something else when I return home in a few weeks.
I might have to fire myself mid-season if this fantasy thing doesn't turn around quick.
I'm off to Stuttgart a day earlier than expected, the IAAF wants me to do a promotional thing for the World Athletic Final, so I'm going to hop on the train later this afternoon, it's only a three hour ride, so once again, I will kick back in my first class seat and relax!
