Here is Nick's explanation on how his team achieved this prestigious distinction …
So I knew I was facing a tough foe — but have been hamstrung by injuries over the past few weeks:
- Peyton Hillis — Madden Curse – Joseph Addai — Hamstrings – Jahvid Best — Season-threatening concussion – Ahmad Bradshaw — Season-threatening foot injury
On top of that, this week my WRs were facing adversity, so I decided to bench them and take my chances with backups and waiver selections:
- #1 Stevie Johnson — On Revis Island – #2 Brandon Marshall — Underperforming all year
My starters and their justification:
- Michael Vick — Favorable matchup at home — but ended up producing very little fantasy numbers
- Delone Carter — Named the starter, but I expected splitting time. He ended up fumbling in the first series and never seeing the ball again.
- Taiwan Jones — Figured RB-by-committee in Oakland and his speed and hints for more playing time seemed like a good investment for this week and take a flyer.
- DJ Ware — Another by-committee scenario. Has shown promise and gotten confidence from his team. Hardly saw the ball. When he did have a positive play it was called back due to holding calls.
- Jon Baldwin — Picked him up hoping he'd go back-to-back positive weeks against a weak Miami team
- Laurent Robinson — He's actually been one of Dallas' better receivers and had a favorable matchup.
- Oakland Defense — Could do nothing against one of the worst QBs in the league. Should have been a favorable matchup.
Overall, I knew I needed an amazing week from flyer pickups — got literally nothing all day. Should have stuck with my guns to at least have a respectable total.
