The Worst Fantasy Football Advice Ever

Before yesterday’s game, I commented on twitter that I benched Tom Brady. There’s simply no way I’d play a QB who’s facing Seattle’s defense, no matter who it is.  I still that that’s sounds logic but there’s more to this story, and it doesn’t make me look good.

Someone responded that they wanted to do the same, but didn’t have a backup. i suggested that they pick up a Free agent starting QB, preferably one “playing a bad defense.” There’s like 10 in my league, so there’s always one you can play in a pinch. Again, sound logic, right?

This is where it gets bad. The person I was having this conversation with said their choices were Christian Ponder or Alex Smith, and they were leaning toward Smith. You can probably see where this is going.

My response was that Smith was probably a safe choice, and that even though the Giants have a pretty good defense, “the running game will slow down the Giants pass rush. Smith should play well.” um… whoops…

Lets take a look at how this worked out exactly:

Player Week 6 Fantasy Points
Tom Brady 19.80
Christian Ponder 19.38
Alex Smith 2.5

So ya, that worked out great didn’t did? Clearly I should stop giving out fantasy football advice. It is obviously not my strong suit at all.

After all that, I figure I owe Gregory Sadioski an apology:

I’m sorry dude. I owe you one. 

Here’s the link to the original conversation on twitter in case you need to re-live my failure over and over at your convenience. I hope everyone gets a laugh out of it.

At least the Seahawks won…
