Ok everyone, grab your lucky 12 sided dice and buckle up, cause it's mere hours from MNF - we all know what that means: MNF FANTASY SWEATS!!!!Edited By: kellykip Oct 8th, 2012 at 08:23 PM
Remember that one time in 8th grade, when the cute girl in class smiled at you from across the room? You turned away in shyness, but then slowly mustered the strength to turn back, catch her glare, and opened wide to show some badass orthodontic work, made less shiny only by the wedged in clumps of Fritos from lunchtime. Yes, we know it turns out she was gazing in lust at Brad, the varsity starting QB who was sitting right behind you - but just recall that one moment where you thought it was all you, and how you couldn't wait to brag after school to the rest of the gang in math club? Well, that moment of ecstasy is the very reason you play this game known as fantasy.
In this thread, we discuss the pregame and game through the eyes of fantasy sweats - no talk of strategy, coaching, etc. that is not directly related to your fantasy matchup.
ITT, as it is fantasy, it is OK to root openly for injuries, and for injured players to not return, so please do so liberally (sorry ncj) - if it will help you pull out that hard fought week 5 fantasy win....or even if it might knock out a star player you have to face next week!! wanna see Arian pop a knee? Need Schaub to lose the other ear tonight? Let's hear all about it! Yesterday, RGIII and Chris Johnson staked their claim to most hated athlete in the world of athsma inhaler infused anger. Things happen in 3s - who shits the bed and endures the wrath of Maury the accounting intern? And who makes the big sacrifice tonight for the ultimate glory; Week 5 MNF Fantasy Stud?

wug, OT fantasy ballas?

Posting ITT because I successfully faded last week's MNF after posting in that one. Up 12.4 fading Andre Johnson and some city slicker fuck named Kerley. I don't like my chances.Edited By: latifahs Oct 8th, 2012 at 08:28 PM
Reason: added some words
need texans D to score me 12 today to keep from going 0-4 this week, they've scored me 16, 11, 4 and 23...plus the jets suck so...
This is for a 4-1 record in a crazy low scoring week... its IDP and scores are normally in the 170 ranges.
I'm up 77.83 - 75.64
I have Shayne Graham he has Shonn Greene.. fun times tonight.
Just need to fade a combined 55 foster/schaub, shouldn't be much trouble.
this thread rapes
I'm up 8 points and against texans D and owen daniels. NOTTTTT liking my chances
obv rooting for owen to get hit by a bus and tebow to lead the jets to 45 points.
Need 11 points from Andre Johnson in a ppr. Seems doable, but who knows? Hopefully it's somewhat of a contest so the texans actually have to throw.
Im the second highest scorer in the OT league this week and i need 42 points from the Texans defense in order to win.
Fuck fantasy football.
Greatest thread of the weekEdited By: djg23 Oct 8th, 2012 at 09:03 PM
Got a sweat in every game but one, prob going to lose them all but Andre Johnson getting about 5 tds and 300 yards should get them all done
sigh - trying to find some common ground for a truce with killingbird, but it's not going so well:
kellykip: wassup braj
killingbird: hey, what's going on?
kellykip: nufin much; just wanted to see if you had a FFB sweat for tonight
killingbird: sigh, I don't play FFB
kellykip: why not?
killingbird: it's too mainstream
kellykip: oh. You watching the game tonight at least
killingbird: yes, I will probably tune in while enjoying a fine craft ale
kellykip: sounds good - what's your current brand?
killingbird: nevermind, you've probably never heard of it
kellykip: ok, well what's it called? Maybe I'll give it a try
killingbird: I doubt they'd have it at the places you go to drink; and last I checked, it was out of stock at "Alejandro's Bodega" (sneer/ eyeroll).
kellykip: Ok, whatever man. I tried. Enjoy the game, I guess
killingbird: Will only catch the 1st quarter - just remembered I have concert tickets tonight
kellykip: coolio; who you seeing?
killingbird: you've probably never heard of them
kellykip: sigh. Talk to you next week
You said coolio?
$75 twk ot league: Lead Owen Daniels by 5 in ppr league. Hope he is arrested before the game for burning down his wife's parents house down via paper towel roll on the stove. My undefeated season is on the lineEdited By: Zeppelin Oct 8th, 2012 at 09:35 PM
$100 non OT league: Trail Arian Foster by 15 in standard league. I have Houston kicker and Andre Johnson. Hope Arian Foster comes out of the closet before the game, gets tied up and drug behind a truck by his teammates as a result.
OT cheapskates vs Scottybrewer: Lead Shonn Greene and Jets D by 8 points. Have Houston Kicker. Hope Jets team bus explodes in an act of terrorism. Terrorist realize they fail because nobody gives a shit about the NY Jets. America has a parade as a thank you. I get drunk off Euroeapean beer and eat falafel with humus to show my appreciation. Millions attend the Tim Teborw funeral to view the resurrection
Up by 23 vs Foster. A7s v K5ish type estimation
nice Zep! Let's hope Daniels gets in a fight with one of those tranny prostitutes that work over by 10th Ave and 14th St. They have a mean left uppercut; why one time, I remember being like $10 short, and so Tyvenda star.....uhh, nevermind. That happened to someone else.
Need 80 points from Arian to remain unbeaten in $250 league. Ran into the perfect storm of drew brees, Reggie Wayne, marquis colston, victor Cruz, alf, bradshaw and bears d... Jail sexed.
Not much of a sweat.Edited By: SpankyHamm Oct 8th, 2012 at 09:27 PM
Me: 173.38 + Andre Johnson
Him: 95.32 + Ben Tate
And for high of the week
Guy 1: 105.40 + Arian Foster
Guy 2: 81.34 + Houston D
This is my "once a year domination" that I get every season. Rest of team was Luck, Richardson, McGahee, Reggie Wayne, Gonzalez, SF D and Scobee.
Down 32 with foster and daniels on my side doubt this will end good

I'm not eating that during the game. That is at the parade New York throws for the terrorist giving them the opportunity to replace everybody on their team (Terrorist come from the Middle East)
I just need Houston's defense to score less than 29.7 points... Against the Jets they could most definitely score more :/
for the first time in seasons probably, I have nothing riding on the MNF game. Locked up all my leagues last night except one but am down 60 with HOU def so ill take my first loss of the yr in that league.Edited By: thereraise Oct 8th, 2012 at 10:06 PM
