    They can't help themselves it seems.

    Well, I think Gordon has officially chosen getting high over playing football.

    They don't have any direct competition and are too big to compete with directly at this point by any startup league. They pretty much have a monopoly.

    If that worked, the Arena League would have been more successful. Same with CFL.

    Yeah, but you guys don't get it. The important thing is that there is always more points, to interest people who don't care about football.

    IMO, if the offense is allowed to fumble the ball out of bounds with impunity for 99.99 yards of the field, the tradeoff should be that they cant do it in the end zone. I have no issue with it. I think DPI being a spot foul is worse.
    This! I hate this rule. PI should be 15, max.

    Funny thing, I won all but one of my DK cash games. My strategy of paying up for RBs in RB1, RB2, and flex and going cheap on everybody else paid off, once again.

    P.S. I should note I don't go cheap at QB. But since so many disappointed, my assorted choices of Brady, Goff, Roethlisberger, and even 6.92 DK fantasy points Drew Brees didn't hurt me.

    Just lots of low scoring games. Except for the Vikings.

    It seems fitting that the game that finally knocks the Lions out of the playoff race involved something like 6 missing RBs, 4 missing WRs, missing OL, a botched XP, and Stafford bleeding from getting hit over and over but somehow not getting sacked once and having a QB rating over 100. I mean Don Muhlbach botched a snap for what may be the first time since he was a rookie and the Lions lost by 1. That's almost as weird as Dan Orlovsky running out of the back of the end zone untouched for a safety in a 2 point loss.

    In my other league, my opponent put up 85 points of her projected 140.

    It was a brutal fantasy weekend for pretty much everyone.
    Yeah it was. I was predicted to have 130 and came away with a whopping 73. I had to double check that people actually played.

    I heard it was one of the lowest scoring weeks of the season for everyone.

    It should be a field goal for the defense, imo. On a more serious note, who thought Brees and Cam would total zero TDs in this game?
