    Dumbest fantasy football move(s) you ever made?

    1. This one is complete hindsight, but still it makes me cringe thinking about it. Last year I drafted Gronk in the second to last round of my 12 man league. After the draft I dropped another guy and picked up Hernandez. This was before Gronk showed any signs of being, well, Gronk. Dropped Gronk after Week 1 when Hernandez put up a good stat line. I figured Hernandez was the better option as he is more of a hybrid WR/TE and they split him out sometimes as a WR instead of blocking which Gronk does more of. Then Gronk went Gronk on everyone, and you know the rest.

    2. This year, I'm looking to pick up a bye-week filler WR in one of my public leagues aside from my 2 money leagues. Girlfriend called me on the phone and I got distracted and I ended up dropping Andre Brown whom is my handcuff to Bradshaw in one of my money leagues thinking I am in my public 10 team league where RBs are dropped every week (and I don't have Bradshaw in the public league). I realized after what I had done, and since I was the one who dropped him I couldn't put a waiver claim in when he became a FA. Someone snatched him up.




    Anyone else?

    Let's put the women and children to bed and go lookin' for dinner

    Had Stephens-Howling in my starting lineup on Thursday then I dumped him for Hardesty. Ended up losing by 3 with S-H going for 20+ points.
    Get well soon 80.

    Drafted Philip Rivers with Aaron Rogers still on the board last season. I thought that Rivers was going to have a monster year.

    The guy that drafted Rogers won the league. I did not.

    This an ALMOST...
    I offered a trade 2 years ago where I wulda given up McCoy for Boldin.
    Week 4 and I was a tad thin in the WR position.
    McCoy at the time was #9 RB and Boldin was #9 WR.
    Guy wuldnt do it unless i threw in another top 15 RB which I thought was insane so didnt do it.
    Season ended with McCoy in the top 3 and Boldin didnt even crack the top 40.
    Thank God he didnt pull that trigger.
