To make matters worse, I added Nate B a few weeks ago and stashed him on my bench hoping for his triumphant return to the FF world-which he did last week with 7-77 and a TD! I started him in five on my 12 FF Leagues this week too.
For those who do not own Nate Burleson he scored zero points on zero catches and no runs. He was targeted ONE TIME in the Lions 40-10 win over GB on Thanksgiving.
I cannot blame the snap counts because he was on the field on every TD play because he usually was the first player to congratulate Jeremy Ross, Calvin Johnson and finally Kevin Olgetree for goodness sakes after they scored.
I watched in horror as Mathew Stafford passed for 330 yards and 3 TDs (I played against him in another money league) and spread the ball to nine other receivers-everyone except Nate Burleson.
So no he was not hurt since he seemed on the field all the time. Instead Kris Durham caught 3 for 68 yards. I was Burlesoned.
