  1. Dear Ladd and Fools Nation,
    The definition of insanity is to do something over and over again expecting a different outcome. To this point I go back to the Fools site expecting to see the "watch'em roll" every thursday over and over with the same outcome. Ladd, why not thursday like previous years? Friday may be too late!

    In any case here are my week 9 dilema's:
    3 teams all PPR
    Battle, Holmes or Bradford in the Flex?
    H Ward, J Baldwin or J Jones as a WR#3?
    M Bush or R Mendenhall as RB#2 (assuming Bush starts)

    Thank you for your commnets...here's to wihsing everyone luck down the main stretch!

  2. Anonymous,

    Friday is sometimes too early to make a good call about Sunday's games. Things change too quickly around here. I actually send my start 'em/sit 'ems to some papers on Thursday, but don't post online till Friday because I prefer to give the most up-to-date info.

    That doesn't mean I'm not insane, though.

    Battle in flex, unless Bradford is a full go (you'll have to wait till Sunday for that answer).
    Baldwin as WR3
    Bush at RB2

    Good luck.

  3. thanks Ladd! I was refering to me being insane as I keep looking on Thursday over and over!
