How did you do? I got smoked. Brian Westbrook did me in again. I’m so glad he was the main principle in a trade that involved Frank Gore so I could face him again so soon. Seattle Defense just made it ugly. Brett Favre was great for me. As was Larry Fitzgerald. Jesse Chatman and Heath Miller did their part. Oh well. That’s how my weekend of fantasy football went. How did you do?

124 yards was great, but held out of the endzone.

Only 29 yards to help my prediction out. Still, he’s been steady.

Not doing so hot, but I’m glad Hackett is coming on.
