Monday Nightmare: Can you trust any Patriot?


Boy you've come to a weird point in your life when even Steve Gostkowski is somebody to avoid in fantasy circles. How is that possible? My man Elliot trailed me by 11.50 points headed into Monday night and honestly, I figured Gostkowski would get that by halftime and I would be put out of my misery.

Instead it was two charity extra points in the second half that left EH well short of the 12 points he needed to win. (And to be honest, I started cursing up a storm like Ralphie's dad in "A Christmas Story" when the Patriots started kicking extra points and not going for two-point conversions after those touchdowns. What was that all about? Yes, I'm a classic worrier about such things, even though this bad boy was locked up at halftime.)

With all of that being said, this is the #MondayNightmare and not a time for gloating. So I turn it over to you good fantasy people. What are your tales of woe?

That's the worst. You nearly pull of the miracle and then that. I don't even count that Gronk touchdown. Can we make league rules where garbage-time points don't count for fantasy?

This is why I never feel comfortable headed into Monday night. Never.

Seriously, who won? I'm not in the mood to do math.

I don't know why you did. It's like you've never read this space before!

Oh man, that's rough.

That's a rough one. Why do we even start defenses now?

Wait a minute, Matt. This is a place for healing!

That's not going to be good for business. (That's not going to be good for anybody.)

We will probably have to talk about that this week. Wait a minute, you won! Get out of here.

Stat corrections. How I loathe you.

Terrible. Just terrible.

Excuse me, I think I threw up in my mouth a little bit. I hate Monday Night Football. I'm serious.

All right, I'm starting to get a little sad here.

Ho, boy.

Been there, man. I was on the verge of punting in just about every one of my leagues this year. But hope is on the horizon.

Nah, probably not.
