Week 9 was by far the most disappointing week of fantasy this season. Worst of all, there were enough high scoring players that not a lot of people are sharing MY misery. I am all alone on an island of pain.

Nothing like checking the newswire 90 minutes before Week 9 kickoff and finding your best player has been benched for missing a team picture. 8:29 AM is way too early to start drinking, but 8:31, after the inactives list comes out, is just fine.

Lots of fantasy scores are like 125-50, this week. Even my fantasy football predicting robot did a bad job and ended up trying to take out all of humanity, before I unplugged it .
