Postmortem: Brc

I am really proud of this team. I thought I had a terrific draft that emphasized pass-catching running backs and receivers as well as those multi-purpose players (think Green Bay Packers all-everything Randall Cobb) who can run, catch, and return kicks. Unfortunately there was not one week (including Week 1) where I had everyone healthy. New England Patriots running back Shane Vereen broke his wrist in that first game, followed by Chargers receiver Malcom Floyd injuring his neck in Week 2, Lions’ Nate Burleson breaking his arm trying to save his pizza after Week 3, Cobb breaking his leg in Week 6, fellow Green Bay Packer Jermichael Finley seriously injuring his neck the next week, and Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski finally returning to the field for six dominant weeks before tearing both his ACL and MCL in Week 14. And that says nothing about guys I drafted—wideouts Michael Crabtree and Percy Harvin—knowing they wouldn’t be ready until later in season. The former performed as expected; the latter not so much. Injuries, of course, are inexorably weaved into the fabric of fantasy football. And many of my studs (LeSean McCoy, Cam Newton to name just two) played in every game. So no hard feelings. And no regrets for a team that fought hard to the finish, losing in the quarterfinals to the eventual league runner up.
