Fantasy Football Forum/My NFL Preseason Projections

Oct 9, 2007

Fantasy Football Forum
Did you win your matchup this week? What’s your record? I got beat to fall to 4-1. Tom Brady was solid. Dallas Clark scored my only TD. Larry Johnson made me throw up in my mouth. I was afraid of Travis Henry so I started LenDale White. He put it on on the carpet, which cut down his carries. I was short on WRs with Ocho on bye and Andre Johnson still hurt. Coles was solid, as was my free agent pickup of Andre Davis. Roddy White, another waiver wire guy, was junk. I thought I found a kicker, but Jeff Reed sucked major backside. Not my best week.

I shook up my team. With Travis “9 kids and a pound a weed” Henry facing suspension, I dealt my top commodity. Well, top 2 I guess. I packaged Tom Brady, Larry Johnson, and Cedric Benson for Brett Favre, Ronnie Brown, and Edgerrin James. Hopefully it doesn’t blow up in my face.

That’s how my weekend of fantasy football went. How did you do?
