Denver Nuggets forward Chris "The Birdman" Andersen is known for his numerous tattoos and constantly changing appearance. There is even a blog dedicated to him. On Sunday, he featured another new look for charity.
To make a long story short, I was down about three points going into the 49ers final drive Monday night. I took the lead by .1 point on the shovel pass by Alex Smith to Glen Coffee after a false start on third-and-short with just over 2 minutes left (a pass that should have never even taken place as the 49ers were lined up to run before the penalty). Needless to say I was living on cloud nine. As the 49ers ran out the clock, I was holding my breath hoping Alex Smith would not fumble the snap. When he took the final knee, I was ecstatic. UNTIL... my live Stattracker updated and I had points deducted for negative rushing yards by Alex Smith on his kneeldowns and I lost by .2 points. Are you kidding me!?!?!? Kneeling shouldn't affect fantasy stats! How can he (and more importantly I) be punished for running out the clock!?!?!? Anyways, just had to share my story. I am a diehard Buffalo Bills fan, so I am no stranger to shocking losses, but it's unfortunate no less. Keep up the good work!"What a dagger for James. But this allows me to get the opinion of Hot Clicks Nation on a very important topic. My good buddy Diesel and I have argued for years now about how much of fantasy football success is luck. I say it's all luck. All might be a slight exaggeration. But I'd say, if a person has basic NFL knowledge -- you know, Peyton Manning is better than Jake Delhomme and that Chris Johnson is better than Brandon Jacobs -- the rest is determined by injuries, NFL matchups and your opponent that week, which is all luck. Diesel says while the playoffs are a crapshoot, regular season fantasy success is only 25 percent luck. What is your take?
