So I thought I'd make a threat, that does the opposite of the Frustration thread. Post here your sleepers that are paying dividends, tough choices that pays off, or just plain simple lucky starts, that keeps you in the game. Obviously this will change as the weeks pass, and some players here will probably end up in the frustration thread instead ;)

I'll start it off by aknowledging my appreciation off the flyer-pick I used on Run-DMC, along with the decision to start him in the first 2 games this season... The concept of starting a raider, and on top of thet it being McFadden is so strange to me, that I was expecting failure and still am... On a side note, a lot of appreciation goes to Bush for getting injured and allowing McFadden to start...


My second choice for this thread gotta be Jay Cutler... I was expecting him to have a decent season, and that I would have to change him based on match-ups through the year, but he's looking like a super-star this far... Thank you Jay, and thank you Mike Martz ;)

Went 4-0 this week in all my leagues. I'm 6-0 on the year in the BR leagues. I appreciate Andre Johnson's huge game this week.

Santana Moss for starting to look like a legit #1. Run DMC for being solid.

Megatron, thank you for taking one extra step before putting the ball on the ground in the end zone...

And thank you to the guy who trade me Arian Foster for Felix Jones in the preseason.

I'd like to thank Miles Austin for compiling 20 catches for 288 yards and a touchdown so far this year. I'm also glad I picked up Arian Foster in one of my Yahoo leagues.

I'd like to thank Calvin Johnson for that late TD against the Eagles when prior to that he had a bad outing.

You probably know the answer.

Good thing, my trump cards are my running backs (Gore, PT Cruiser, Run DMC) and Gates (he's a WR1 in disguise of a TE).

I've been stressing how important it is to get Gates or Clark all offseason. They really put up WR1 stats. Its just plain unfair. Its worth getting these guys early. There's a class of kings, Gates and Clark.

I have to say my thanks to Mendenhall because he has been consistent so far this year, and I know he will have a real tough time against us this week.

I'm 100% sure he won't. The introduction of Cody and the front seven looking to redeem themselves after last Sunday's debacle are reasons alone Mendenhall likely won't go off. Plus, when was the last time a Steelers RB gashed the Ravens?

These were my thoughts exactly, although I can't say I would be mad if Mendy had a couple TD's and the Ravens won.

Nor would I. A major injury aside, I don't care what happens Sunday, as long as the Ravens win.

I'd like to thank Arian Foster today. Whatever you did to miss the first quarter, I don't really care. 187 total yards and 2 TDs in 3 quarters, enough said.

What a beautiful scenario it was.

Thanks to Mendenhall for still being consistent against the best D in the league and thanks to David Garrard for being my highest scorer this week.

I would like thank Antonio Gates for making the TE position unfair. Gates is the steal of the draft cause all the WR #1 are supposed to be gone by round 2/3. Gates is totally worth it on round 4 or 5.
