One wrong decision cost me the entire seasaon


Recommended Posts

OK so this is another one and done for me in the play-offs.


Guy in my league was joking with me at the draft about how I should get an award for having the best teams every year but never have won a championship.


This year I had a rocky road with mostly great players who didn't score a bit (except the Bears)


This week was par for the course for my team this year.


I had one decision and couldn't really make up my mind, I went with Addai and Tiki instead of Bush, my 4th RB Chester would have put up good numbers (I suppose) if he had not been injured.


So I couldn't decide b/t Tiki, Addai and Bush


Made a few WDIS threads about it and got about 5 votes Bush and 5 votes Addai.


So I can't decide, so I look at the game odds and see Indy is supposed to win. I had a gut feeling they were going to go off this week (and score a lot).


Saints was a 7 point dog and they have so many weapons I didn't know what to expect from Bush.


So I figure Tiki was an OK strart at number one, and didn't have a good feel for my second RB, so went with my gut and started Addai.


Well long story short, these guys did not score a TD this week:










The only position player on my team that did score a TD was (you guessed it) Bush who I had on my bench and thus cost me the game and the season

At least you didn't get Fason-ed, like I did...cost me BOTH playoff games.


I feel your pain, brother. Good luck next year!


Sad thing is I had the bears and I needed something from Hester and I got it.


But my opponent had Grosman and Thomas Jones, both of who did very well last night, so b/c of the bears I could have won if I had only started Bush...



I was wishing Grosmann would get benched.


I subscribe to Fantasy Football Index weekly and they had Bush as around the 23th RB this week (lower than both Addai and Tiki).



My biggest downfall was the Wayne/Addai shut-out this week. Wayne had a nice game (110 yards), but the Colts used to score up one side and down the other. They really are a poor poor team at this point.


This week the Saints look like what I thought the Colts should look like.

As an Addai/Bush owner, there was absolutely no way I was starting Addai against the stuffing Jag D over the multi-faceted Bush. Sorry I must have missed your post when you asked for advice.


yes, sorry I didn't get that info earlier.


But it's not like Addi is a poor runner, he's as good (points) as Tiki and Bush but I think Addai got hurt as well as Indy was well and truly out of the game (they do not look like a play-off team to me).


But as reciently as 2 weeks ago Addai did score 4TDs in a game, and Rhodes got a walk-in TD that I think should have gone to Addai


On the season Addai is as good a FF player as Bush into this weeks game, and he is multifaceted as well he attempted a pass in the game. On the year Addai has 8 TDs and 1100+ total yards (both yards and TDs are better than Bush).


My big loss was Chester who his replacements went nuts this week. If healthy who knows what Chester would have done?


Also as usual Tiki did not score I was expecting that, but lets face it outside of last week Bush was not a player you can count on, now he is counting last week and this week

if you are relying on one decision reggie bush or addai..then it just wasn't meant to be. Don't get to upset about it.


This is true, Chester got hurt and the rest of my players Wayne, SS, Gonzo, Tiki are what they are, not like I'm going to pick up a player from WW or something, and who am I going to get in trade for Tiki who has been a dog all year? Or how can I replace Chester before the biggest game of the year?


In short, I wish I had gone with Bush, I was back and forth about it, here on the Huddle I got views both ways maybe 5 for Bush and 5 for Addai. Can't say I didn't ask anyone for advice, or that Bush was a stone cold lock b/c he has scored in 3 games all year, thats it.
