Did you win your matchup this week? What’s your record? I got worked. I dropped my 4th straight to fall to 4-4. Eli Manning was dreadful. I’m glad I sat Brett Favre. Brilliant of me to bench him on MNF. Newly aquired LenDale White (for Jesse Chatman and Javon Walker) and Kenny Watson (filled the roster spot in the LenDale trade) were solid at RB. I traded Dallas Clark for Coles and Heath Miller. Miller had a decent game, but Coles was a bigger junkpile than Eli. I thought NYG D (also acquired int the Clark trade) would be something special against Miami. They were just average. David Akers was decent. I’m fading fast. I did win in the four free leagues I’m in. Yeah, that doesn’t really help.

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

Tracking My NFL Preseason Predictions
