Fantasy Football

The same thing seems to happen to me every year in fantasy football. I start off hot, winning 2-3 games, then my players start having byes and getting injured, so I drop a couple. The one I dropped last week was entirely my fault for not preparing properly before going camping for the weekend. I sat LeSean McCoy, who ended up scoring a TD and getting 138 all-purpose yards that I desperately needed. Who was in his place? Tim Hightower, who has done fuck-all for me this season, and who was subsequently dropped. What a waste of a draft pick.

Here are my injured players that were big in the points dept:
Michael Vick - QB
Jermichael Finley - TE
LeSean McCoy - RB(who is playing through the pain like a true gent, but you can tell is being affected by his cracked rib)
Reggie Bush - RB

With that said, here's how my lineup is looking this week. I was gonna have Percy Harvin too, but some fuckbag in my league already picked him up before I got to him.

Peyton Manning - QB
Josh Freeman - QB
Jeremy Maclin - WR
Davone Bess - WR
Dexter McCluster - WR
Rashard Mendenhall - RB
LeSean McCoy - RB
Heath Miller - TE
Roy Williams - WR/RB
Rob Bironas - K
Pit - DEF
Darrelle Revis - DB
Julius Peppers - DE
DeMarcus Ware - LB

Miller should flourish with Roethlisberger back at QB, RW11 has gotten me a fair amount of points ever since his breakout in week 3 vs the Texans, Bess is a slot receiver with a lot of potential from Miami, Freeman has been getting better by the week, and Pittsburgh's defense has been lights out for me so far this year.

So there's my fantasy team, we play 2 QB but it's only a 10-man league so it's really better. If anybody has any suggestions I'll see if I can try to get someone off a waiver before the week.
