FANTASY SPORTS BOSS IN BIG TROUBLE IN EXPERTS LEAGUE FINAL

It just doesn't seem meant to be.  All the signs were there Saturday that this season was not going to be a winning one for yours truly in the fantasy football Experts League finale.  It started early when Martellus Bennett (who I benched for Vernon Davis right before kickoff) caught a TD pass and went through my kicker Stephen Haushka unbelievably missing a PAT which cost me a precious point.  In between my opponent loses Marcus Mariota to injury but his tight end gets a TD on his only catch of the game (Tyler Brate).  Then there was the fact that my Titans defense scored -1 points and that marked the second week in a row my defense gave me a negative (Minnesota -5 last week) which is almost impossible.  Drew Brees tossed just one TD and Michael Crabtree and Brandin Cooks (while having good overall games) failed to score.  The topper though was seeing 44 points from one player on my bench in the form of Adam Thielen.  Now I wont beat myself up over that since I would have never considered Thielen over any of my receivers but it was just how the day was going.  Finally, I had Charles Clay on my roster and in the starting tight end slot up until Friday when I cut him for Bennett.  Then Clay nabs 28 points Saturday.

So what I am looking at now being down 10 is I have two big guns in Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell but my foe has Spencer Ware, Ezekiel Elliott, and Justin Tucker.  In other words, it is not looking good.  Of course I am hoping Jason Garrett scales back the carries of Elliott and reports are he will do so.  But it likely won't be enough.  You can't win them all.
