am I insane? I seriously get steamed when I lose in fantasy to the point where I cant even sleep some nights because I get so mad. For example........I lost tonight in my football league by 4 points. I thought I would get blown out because going into tonight I had 85 points and my opponent still had Peterson, so I figured, ok, he will score 20 and Ill get blown out. Thats fine, thats not as bad. I ended up losing by 4 as I said. The thing is.......I lost by the 4 pts and my RIDICULOUSSSSSSSS tight end didnt even catch ONE ball on Sunday, not one. I got a zero for him. I mean come on. If he catches 2 passes, chances are I win. We do play for money, its not like its just for fun. Does anyone else get like this? I HATE losing more then anything. I honestly think Id rather have the flu then lose.

That's why I don't do Fantasy Leagues. Too much stuff to worry about and other things to think about.

I love the fantasy season but at the same time I absolutely hate it. When the season is over for the NFL (fantasy season) in like week 15, its such a relief to just sit back and watch a game and not have to worry about whos doing what. Its like Wallstreet, I got papers an crap all over the place

i feel the exact same way.
i started playing fantasy sports in like 02, and i'm finally starting to get burnt out on it.
it's just too much to worry about for so little reward.
i used to play like 5 football leagues, two baseball leagues, and two basketball leagues.
now i only play one of each, and i don't really let it interfere with my viewing schedule/rooting interests.

I feel your pain. For 2 straight weeks I had a tight end that didnt catch ONE ball and I ended up losing by less then 5 points. It is just ridiculous. How can you not catch one ball? Must be nice to make like 100k a game and not even have to catch a ball

The one player I get mad about is Jerricho Cotchery. He is so hit or miss. I'll play him, he'll have 1 catch for 10 yards one week, i'll play him again he'll have 2 catches for 11 yards, I sit him because of that and he has 134 yds and a TD the week I sit him. So I play him the next week and he has 1 catch for 0 yards. UGHH. Fortunately for me, my two leagues on Yahoo where I'm playing for money I am in the championship game. I won my one league by .8 pts and my other league by 2 pts. Phewww

Brett Favre is horribly frustrating. I benched him the week he threw 6 td passes because the week before he played below average. The guy is so up and down. He can have one week like the 6td week, and then throw 2 ints and lose 2 fumbles the next.
