I fell victim to the dreaded "questionable" last night: with a packed lineup and running late to update my rosters, I had to make a split-second decision on Tyreke, and missed out on those numbers for three of my five squads. :mad:

I’m right there with you Slim, I benched Tyreke thinking he wouldn’t play, didn’t get to check the update that he was good to go and watched in agony as Reke did what Rekes been doing this year.....on my bench!:mad:

You know it's not your night when your squad puts up big numbers, and you still get smoked.

Meanwhile, the ol' "Game Time Decision" got me again. This time, with Waiters Island, who I made a last-second decision to sit in the KingsFans Daily League, going against Boston's defense, and coming off an oh-fer, in favor of McCollum, who was held to five points.

You know what sucks? Being in a keeper league and missing the draft. :p

I am having fun right now, considering the ONLY player I have that's doing anything is Demarcus Freaking Cousins. I've got a couple of project players I'm holding on to but I'm gonna be really active in moving players in and out of my roster. It's not like I've got much to lose. I'm certainly not gonna make the playoffs so I might as well consider this a "LEARNING" season.

I'd like to take a moment to thank Yahoo for voiding all my roster pre-sets because I changed one player. Nothing beats seeing 60 some points sitting on your effing bench. :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

As if I didn't have enough reasons to hate football...

All my fantasy teams are screwed today, because I didn't realize until 12:30 that all the games started at 12:00, so as not to be counter-programmed against the ****ing Super Bowl. :mad:

I have a weird streak going with Fantasy Leagues, where I've never won a league where I went into the playoffs as the Number One seed. Lost yet another one this past week.

On the other hand, I also won a public league, after a crazy gambit paid off. So, I'm back in the winner's circle for the first time since 2012.

Well, after 15 years of playing in the "official" KingsFans league, I was poised to finally grab the championship. A long lull in the winter where I missed setting my weekly lineup and checking the waiver wire didn't seem like it was going to cause any problems as I easily made it into the playoffs as the 2 seed and beat semi-final opponent JSin handily.

While on vacation I checked the latest tallies for the finals against catch22 with only a couple days left in the NBA season. I was up 7-2, and had significant leads in 4 categories (compared to 1 for my opponent). The next day it was 6-2-1, but again, catch22 would have to pass or stay ahead of me in all 4 categories that were close on the last day of the season.

He didn't quite do it. He nabbed only 3 of those, but he tied the fourth, which left us tied 4-4-1 at the end of the final matchup.

Tiebreaker was head-to-head tallies in the fantasy regular season, in which we were tied at 9-9 going into our third matchup. Of course, that last matchup happened during my winter downtime and I had been beaten handily.

catch22 gets 1st place. I get another near miss.

I don't want to go over every little thing that could have gone differently, but let's just say a if a butterfly had just flapped its wings in Philadelphia maybe I don't score 24 points from a group that averages over 90, or if perhaps a flea had just farted in Oklahoma City I could have gotten one fewer turnover from a guy gunning for 20 rebounds/20 assists.

:rolleyes::(

yep, I thought I was done couple of days before the end of the season.

The last weeks are just a lottery and mess anyway. My top 3 picks from the draft played total of 5 games during those final 10 days.
