@KingofthisCastle - Not "playing to lose". My initial loss provided me with the waiver wire priority to select a player that ultimately led to my victory. If you read the entire thread, I chose to only lose Week 1.
I view(ed) it as navigating the leagues rules to my benefit. I exploited a flaw in my league's set-up.
And by no means is this a unique strategy, Matthew Berry (Not a great source, but in the article talks about his leaguemate Michael Smith intentionally losing in Week 1) wrote an article about just this thing last year: http://sports.espn.go.com/fantasy/footb ... =TMR121004
I will admit I got very lucky picking up Alfred Morris, but I would not have been in a position to select Morris were it not for my initial loss.
On a side note, I don't really appreciate the name calling.
