So I hold off on putting Matt Ryan in for 5 weeks because hell I have Aaron Rodgers starting. Ryan puts up way better numbers week in and week out. Week 6 comes along. A week after Ryan puts up 42 points in my league. Okay so he is up against Oakland. Rodgers hasn't been doing it for me and he is up against that Texans defense. I'll put Ryan in... 16 points Rodgers is up over 50. I am getting blown out 100-55. Stupid STUPID STUPID!!!!
I traded Doug Martin away after week 3. I was matched up with the person I traded him to in week 9, and that is the very same week where Doug Martin had that monster of a game with 272 yards and 4 TD's. I was kicking my self in the a*#. Needless to say, I got whooped 211.65-160.45 that week.
I hate fantasy football sometimes, too. lol
Your killing your own team with both of them on your roster. They are both studs and both will have up and down weeks. You should not be playing matchups with these two guys. Both should be started any week they play. Unless your hole team is stacked trade one for a nice bye week fill in QB and another player who will give you depth some where else on your roster. When you over think fantasy football it always comes back to bite you. Trust me, been there done that....
I am looking into it. Although my roster is pretty good. Frank Gore starting at RB. Brandon Lloyd, Andre Johnson, at WR, Greg Olsen at TE and I have Miles Austin in my flex spot. I am looking to trade Matt Ryan for a decent RB since Miles hasnt been doing anything and I'd rather have a RB in that flex.
You have some serious trading power with that duo...
I think a lot FF owners benched Rodgers this past week - you can't really second guess it based upon the matchups - Ryan was @ home vs a bad Oak pass D and Rodgers on the road vs a suppossed solid D - The only reasons to recommend Rodgers before this one was that the Texans looked lost defensively after the Cushings injury the week before - They were torched a bit in the passing game and it's GB on the road in Primetime Sunday Night -
Just goes to show - the NFL is the only real Reality TV.....
Wow that sucks
Makes me feel better for benching Stafford and putting in Ryan this week!
