4th and Very Looong

My fantasy season is mostly over thanks to a very flawed strategy of taking crappy players on crappy teams and Andre Johnson and Jay Cutler as my holdovers.

Oh well.  Onward and Upward.  So, I had two free agent moves left and I picked up Peyton Manning and Kenny Britt.  Both of which will cost me $20 to holdover (total budget of $181...don't ask).  So less than 10% for each to get a Top 3 QB and a rising star at WR who was the second best until a blown ligament. 

I also have Antonio Brown for $8 and Tim Tebow for $5.  I was hoping Stevan Ridley would have taken over for BenJarvis Green-Ellis by now...or at least an injury so he would get 15 plus touches a game.  No luck there.

Looks like I will be paying big bucks for a #1 and #2 RB next year.  Fingers crossed that Manning is back and Britt is 100%.

Who is the Biggest Bust in Fantasy Football This Year?

Check out the poll in the right-hand column.

First, let me preface this by saying that Jamal Charles and Peyton Manning are not on this list.  Why?  Because even though they were first and second rounders and if you took them you are not getting anything from them, at least you knew that early and you could cut bait on them early on.  Andre Johnson you are stuck holding the bag.  Worse is brother Chris, who, up until this week, you had to start.

These guys were all first, second or early third rounders and you are theoretically bound to start them, week in and week out.

Any names I missed?

Javon Ringer Should Take Over for Chris Johnson, But He Won't

You heard it here first.  Mike Munchak is saying all the wrong things and he is lying through his teeth.  He says that Johnson's teammates are behind him (which, if you think about it is a problem for a running back, wouldn't you want them in front of you?).

But really, Munchak needs to hand the reigns over to Javon Ringer, who looks better, runs better, and is a better teammate.  Ringer's main problem?  He isn't raking in the big dollars, so he's not going to get a fair shake.

My last dollar says that management of the Titans is telling Munchak to keep Johnson in there because they just dropped a big wad of cash on him and they need to justify their (poor) decision.
