At least you picked him. Last couple seasons he was a must have. or whatever reason, since his injury at the beginning o this season, I keep resisting selecting him. As though his first brace wasn't evidence enough that he's backI thought I captained Giovinco this week, who already has two goals. My captain is actually Jozy. Fuck me.
I don't hate the unlimited transfers as much as I thought I would -- where they really screwed up is in the valuations. Everybody should have started with an $85-$90M budget. In a few weeks there wont be any starting lineup decisions I make based on a limited budget.I do kind of hate the unlimited transfers. I have to assume they decided that the Draft Kings model was "better" than the FPL model.
Midas taking the DNP for the week. A-fucking-gain.
Next time I convince myself I actually want to play fantasy sports, remind me I fucking loathe it. I think I must get my fantasy fix from FUT. In theory, I want to do this and I even have the requisite knowledge (as evidenced by my strong performance in the MLS Show prediction leagues, where I regularly best so called MLS Fantasy experts). I just get annoyed with fantasy. Either you get the same number of games as everyone else competing for that week or else limit the transfers. This weird hybrid structure can't keep my attention. It's a pain in the ass and not particularly fun. There's no room for strategy beyond follow the meta and try to guess correctly with some fucking scrub ass defender or who you captain.
It's fine. Just not for me. I think if I felt that the parameters were actually challenging my strategic prowess in some way, I'd be more mentally engaged. Apparently, despite my initial contention otherwise, the money alone is not enough to make me remember to give a damn about it. I actually thought about the DGW yesterday, but I consciously chose to read an old Big Soccer thread about some guy I'd never heard from the Swiss 2nd division rather than go face the chinese checkers mindfuck that is the UI of this horribly administered competition. I'm weird. I know. But this fantasy game is just shit for me.
The other difference is I have Medranda captained. I'm guessing you Gave Seba the C. Another shutout by KC in Minnesota would help, but I'm not sure how likely it is. I didn't Captain Giovinco because I correctly guessed he would sit out a game, but he scored so much in the one it still seems like a mistake.Going into today I have Fehlhaber and 13 points against your Harrison. It would be awesome if you won this round.
You are right -- it might not be that awesome to lose to you if Fehlhaber sits.The other difference is I have Medranda captained. I'm guessing you Gave Seba the C.
