Monday's View from the Arm ChairThey say hindsight is 20/20. When it comes to fantasy football looking back on decisions you made or didn't make can drive any manager crazy. I had my own Captain Hindsight moment when I pulled Rashad Jennings from my lineup, who at the time was a talent mired in Giant mediocrity and inserted newly crowned starter Alfred Blue starting in the wake of an Arian Foster hammy pull. Speaking of that you'd think the Texans would be smart enough to not give Arian Nation such a ridiculous work load the first two weeks of the season. I blame the coaching staff for his injury...you have other backs there to lessen the load and keep your stud on the field yet you can't help but to run the guy into the ground. Now back to me pulling Rashad Jennings. Of course, Rashad goes off to the tune of 171 yds and a touch while Alfred may as well have been batman's butler with a pedestrian effort of under 100 yds and no TD. That singular decision lost me the league this week. Now that you know I am feeling your pain let's look at a few games and lineup decisions from Week 3 and look forward to how we can prevent this stuff form happening again. I guess before we go on we can address this Jennings thing I pulled. Rule number one, don't over think these things. I get texts all the time asking me things about certain players and I preach this to my buddies because I want everyone to have success....but of course I ignore my own rule. Alfred Blue, you are dead to me!
