How did you do? I snapped my seven game losing streak. I started off with a bang with Favre and Driver on Turkey Day. I plugged in Fred Taylor and Kolby Smith from the waiver wire. Larry Fitzgerald continued his dominance. Even Dwayne Bowe was decent as my third receiver, which has been a trouble spot all year for me (it’s my first game over five points from a 3rd WR since Week 5.) Surprisingly, I didn’t face Frank Gore or Chad Johnson this week. That’s how my game went down. How about you?

    Mo – I hear ya
    Liam – I still like VY. He’s a football player not a fantasy player. Although, he’s been losing lately. Thanks for checking out the site.
