When fantasy teams suck

I have the worst fantasy team in my league. I play with a group of people from my office, and I have yet to win a game. This past weekend, I played the only other person with an 0-3 record (The Battle of the Beatens). He destroyed me.

I'm so embarassed. I am a complete and total failure at this. My team should be good. On paper, we're always predicted to win. I have Peyton Manning, Jason Witten, Darren McFadden, Brandon Marshall. I was told these are good players. Well, guess what: Peyton Manning decided to get old this year, Darren McFadden is playing like a rookie, and the gods are punishing me for putting a woman beater like Marshall on my team.

So what do I do? Help me fantasy land. Tell me who to get and who to kick to the curb. I will not settle for a loser!

I totally feel your pain here. Those are really not bad players, it's actually surprising that you're winless.

The Fantasy Gods are very fickle, I say you trade Marshall for another top receiver or running back and that might help reverse your fantasy chi/karma.

(Coming from the proud owner of a 1-3 team that just got beat down by like 50 points this past week)

Trade for LT. Nobody wants that joker, but I hear he's actually pretty good.

Vick is probably a free agent in your league.

Well, I mean, he's not "free" technically...

Fantasy football will drive you to drink. I drafted the worst team in history on paper, but they actually turned out to be good. Suddenly having a lot of Broncos is a good thing, and I have Cutler, Marshall and Prater. Now if only LT would stop being the fourth best player on my team, I might think about a championship.
