Rosters in my sig.  I should squeak out a win in the first one, but in my 2nd team RGIII and the lowly Skins killed me.  Not to mention I went up against Brees.  Sigh

First thing I'd ask is where are these projected scores coming from? Is it on the site where you run league, like ESPN, Yahoo, CBS, MFL?  If so ignore that, I play on CBS and their projected scores are notoriously bad.

As for your specific result and stress, your team just didn't perform as well as you needed, this week and at times during the season. It isn't horrible (RG3, Green, Thomas, Djax, Witten) are all good, just underperforming at times.

If FF stresses you out too much take a year off, it is just a game don't let it rule your life or subtract too much from your enjoyment of the NFL.

I know man wtf like my projections for the super lotto only got like TWO NUMBERS RIGHT.  Who are these clowns and why would you post projections if you aren't going to get them right.  I already had a hugh loan I started to fill out paperwork on and was gonna get a boat and a car and a house and a horse and a island and a big screen and a new grill so I could cook a pig.

Some sights do their projections by getting an average of total points for the season without considering match ups etc. I wouldn't put a lot into it.

I only trust in the projections from NFL.com. Madden simulations are the only way to go!

An island thats big enough to need a horse and a car?  It wouldnt happen to to be a red station wagon with a canvas top and sans door?    I miss Herve Villechaze.

Yeah well our league has fractional points and get this. I lost by .4 in the first week and this last week I lost by .06. Not even a full tenth of a point.

Totally agree.  Big names like RG3, McCoy, Gronk all lay an egg.  Was projected to win big and I got crushed.  I've already written off this year, but for me the most frustrating thing is the "experts" bragging on how they "nailed it" on Monday morning.  Until you are able to project that Marvin Joes will do better than Gronk, or that Peyton Hillis will outscore McCoy, just shut up already.  It is 99% luck.

It pisses me off that all the one's that don't know crap about football and showed up either late for the draft or just on time are on top in the standings in my league. It's frustrating as hell. Damn rookies beating a veteran like me.

Luck does play a big part of it, but if you think FF is 99% luck then stop doing research and just start picking players blindly...see how you'll be rewarded...short term you might win but no way you consistently win that way...and fwiw, I do think luck is more prevalent in re-draft than it is in dynasty leagues.

My my... so many panties, so many bunches.

Would you all have the same angst if you were in a points-only league?  I'm guessing the vast majority of us are in head-to-head leagues.  We all know how it goes, you face a team with mediocre talent only to lose by 5 or 6 points.  But how many times have YOU been on the other end?  Those are the times you forget.  You only remember the times when you lose to scrubs... not when your guys have a huge week and beat up on someone.

If you don't like it, form a points-only league or get into a best ball type of league.

I'm in a Fantasy Sportswriters Ass'n league where I'm 1st in points but only 4-4.  :sad:

I'm in a 16-teamer where I'm 1st in points by a country mile and am 6-2... really should be 8-0 but had one week of bye week issues and just got pummeled by the 2nd-best team in the league and another week where my guys just didn't show up and lost by 5. :sad:

Gotta realize that luck (and who you're faced up with in a given week and THEIR luck) is a huge part of it.  Draft well, trade well, make smart pickups and let the chips fall.  Get into the playoffs and then it's a different ballgame.

This X1000. Sometimes your team will just blow up. Everyone scoring, everything looking great only to check your league scoreboard and find the guy your playing is also having a big day. Then you look at the scores of all the other teams in your league and realize you would be destroying the other 10 teams but unfortunately for you, you happen to be playing the other top team that week (happens to me more than I can count and it's what drives me nuts the most as well).

Then there's the flip side. Your squad is barely on life support and your opponent is also sucking wind and you eek out a 2 point win from the 52 yarder your kicker just made.

Like what was said, draft well, trade well, do your homework on the WW and play the best collection of players you can. The owners that are paying attention to all these details 9 times out of 10 are making the playoffs and winning championships.

Just about every time I look at my lineup and my opponents and I think to myself I should win this one I lose.... I hate it when the matchup looks too easy as it never works out for me
