Fantasy Football - Week 2

Well, it's been a good start to the season. I'm currently 1-0 after the first week, and am winning my second week's matchup, going into tonight's Monday Night Football game.

Won my first week's game, thanks to a fine performance by Jay Cutler (QB - Denver) on Monday night. Finished with the most points for the week, which will net me some waiver wire money.

As for Week 2, Michael Turner (RB - Atlanta) was a letdown this week after last week's performance, but, again, Jay Cutler didn't disappoint me, throwing for over 350 yards and 4 TD's and one 2 point conversion pass. Of course, he should have had only 3 TD's, but thanks to a blown call by the refs, he had 4. I've got a slim 20 point lead going into tonight's game, with Terrell Owen (WR - Dallas) starting for me, and Jason Witten (TE - Dallas) and the Cowboys D going for my opponent. I'm hoping that TO will do what is necessary to secure my win.

I may not finish 1st in total points this week, but I will definitely finish in the Top 3, which will still net me some more waiver wire money.

As for my team, I did lose Nate Burleson (WR - Seattle) for the year, but replaced him with Courtney Taylor (WR - Seattle.) It's not that Taylor was high on my list of players to get, but that I was last in the waiver wire order and Taylor was the only one on my list of players I wanted to pick up. I tried for Eddie Royal (WR - Denver), Devery Henderson (WR - New Orleans), and a few others, but it was not to be.

I forgot to mention in my first Fantasy Football post, I do subscribe to a fantasy football website ( I've been with them for about 8 or 9 years now, and since finding them, I've been doing a lot better in my league than I did without them. If you are looking for fantasy football information, are tough to beat with the information and tools they give all year round.

We'll see how tonight goes...
