How do I go from sucking to challenging for most points in a week? 

The same way you go from 0-3 to 6-3...
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

Is Vinegar Strokes a robot team, or is Andy just employing the old hands-off static management technique?

So Vauthrin, with a commanding lead, gets beat in successive weeks by me, who sucks, and then by Zipp, who's not even fucking playing, and I'm not sure which is worse.

And then duman turns in a perfectly respectable game leaving nothing of value on the bench only to lose by a fingernail.

And austro, man, I don't know, but I feel for you. I bet there are three or four teams this week with one player that eclipsed your entire team.

Fantasy football is a cruel mistress.

If I would have told you that the Rams would score 54 and Gurley II would only have 8 points...

It was a truly noteworthy effort. I'd say that it was just bad breaks, but when you start Dalvin Cook and Demaryious Thomas, you kind of deserve it.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

When you boasted about him last week, I think you jinxed the hell out of Ebron.

I’m second in the league in points, and I’m 5-6. Go figure.

The acid test is this week, for I play Zipp. As my cumulative record indicates, I'm not too good at this game, or really any other game for that matter. So don't be surprised if I get dusted by a rudderless, defense-less Zippster! Don't tell him that his defense is on bye!!!

Unfortunately, my squad was merely drafted by Fredia and only crushes dreams that are my own.

I'll trade you 4 first round draft picks for DeShawn.

Done. Maybe I'll get Khalil Mack back.
Damn, I should have done it.

That Lamar Miller scamper didn't hurt, either.

But I won't even move up in the standings because MM's team scores 200 points again.

And yet just 6-6, despite Yahoo saying if I played every team every week, I’d be 94-38.

Freaking Robo-Zipp is going to destroy me this week because this was the one week out of 16 that Derrick Henry decided to show up.

Don't feel bad he beat me too. It's been a questionable strategy but not entirely without success, Robo-Zipp could end up at .500.

Robo-Zipp beat my sorry ass with his defense on bye!
