RBBC sux!

It seems to me that Fantasy Football is a totally different beast than it was just a few short years ago.  In recent years, you could draft a starting running back from most teams in the league and outside of injury issues, be set for the year.  Is it me or are more and more teams operating as running back by committee over the last couple of seasons?  The Broncos have had this mode of operation for some time, but if you stayed aware from Denver RB's this was pretty much a non-issue.  Now it seems like nearly every team operates this way.  When you add injury to the mix, it's hard to intelligently pick a starter.  How many times have you started the lead RB only to have him rack up yards but have the TD's stolen by a lesser back?  It's ridiculous!

I think Fantasy scoring structure should be modified to account for this.  It's always been a problem with WR's and TE's since they might only catch one pass for 13 yards and a TD and score more points than a player who catches 5 passes for 65 yards, but now it's creeped over into the RB position.

Wouldn't it better reward skillful player selection if TD's counted for less?  Maybe 3 points instead of 6?  Just my opinion!  Let me know what you think.

Who the hell should I start!

Does anyone have a clue this season?  My top three picks this season were 1) Brian Westbrook, 2) Marques Colston, 3) T.J. Houshmandzadeh which I felt really good about.  Thought I'd be set for the year at WR and in good shape at RB.  Little did I know that Colston would get injured in the first game of the season, Cincy would totally implode on Offense and Westy would have splinters in his ass from sitting on the bench half of the season with injuries.

If I told you during the pre-season that Lance Moore and Vincent Jackson would have more points as a tandem than T.O. and Randy Moss you would have had me committed.   And that's just at WR.  What about RB?  Would you have taken Matt Forte over LaDainian Tomlinson? Chris Johnson over Steven Jackson?  Steve Slaton over Joseph Addai?  And QB is equally screwed up.  Even if you take away the injury issues at QB, how 'bout Kerry Collins driving the Titans to 10 & 0?  Duante Culpepper starting for the Lions?

Is it me or does it seem like some alternate universe of Fantasy Football this year, where  up is down, fast is slow, good is bad.  Where the Titans are undefeated and the Chargers can't buy a win.

Just my thoughts......you have any?
