The purpose is to pump up people who are down about their teams. So many new fantasy players have knee jerk reactions early on. and I'm telling them to play the wire and be patient. I've gotten results. And I'm telling them that eventually, they will too. 

 

I actually meant that yours tips are worthless, as nobody will find Batum, TJ Warren or Ariza in a competitive 12 team league as you did. You can safely drop Nurkic now because he is struggling right now, pick him up as soon as he makes a good game and come here to tell us to pay attention to the wire

Fair point.

While well-intended, your post probably belongs in the Cool Story Bro thread. Vent & Rant is a place where we can all kvetch and commiserate about our sh!tty teams.

Lol true. My bad, I'm new to this forum. Just trying to get used to it, didn't intend to ruffle any feathers, my bad

umm....that team is gonna win the next 5 years. just quit.

 

There's an even worse one in my league. Antetokounmpo, Westbrook, Porzingis, Wall, PG, Whiteside, Drummond . . . Put it this way, we have eight starters, and on busy nights he sits Jrue Holiday.

 

He hasn't lost a week in more than two years.

This is not a joke...

 

My team was down 1 point for the week...I have Thaddeus Young left to play, my opponent has no one...

 

Thaddeus Young, a man who averages 14.6 points per game, put up 0.

 

What a joke Thaddeus. You're dead to me.

When you have 12 players ranked inside the top 100 (Richardson goes into top 100 after tonight's performance I believe), BBM says you have the best team in the league, and you're 1-3 on the season because your league is insanely competitive, and your opponents are getting ridiculously lucky (Lonzo Ball, Russell, and Curry just combined for 11 blocks for my opponent to help him beat me 5-4). 

 

This has been an on-going theme for me for 3 seasons, I draft a great team, only to have the guys I face put up career lines week after week.

 

Three weeks ago it was Cousins getting player of the week honors and breaking records, last week it was JJ Redick dropping career highs, this week its Lonzo ball deciding to get 8 blocks. 

 

Somehow even though BBM projects me to be a cusp 80% FT team, because my team doesn't take enough attempts, Warren or Gordon only have to f--- me once on the week and I've been averaging 75% - 76% FT and I'm 0-4 in a cat I'd thought I'd be strong in. I sat at 83% the entire week, and Gordon only had to go 5/10 one game and I went all the way down to 76.

 

Extremely frustrating season thus far. Really love my team, really hate fantasy; that's life I guess!

 

Luckily even sitting at 16-19 on the season, the entire league is only a few wins apart due to how balanced the league is (we only have max 3 moves on the week so everyone is able to make good pick ups, and 70 move cap on the year), so I only need a 7-2 or 8-1 blow out and I'm in a top 4 playoff position.

I've been surging up my rankings this week. I started the week at 8th, up to 3rd now (12 teamer roto league). Tyreke and TJ Warren helped make that happen. I had a chance to get Kuzma, but I got Warren instead. Can't say I regret my decision too much! The fact that I have the Greek Freak and Porzingod helps too! And now Nurkic is starting to come to life! Life is great right now! 

And this qualifies as a vent or  rant exactly how?
