My fantasy football team is nearly doomed

So I went into last Monday night down by 30 points, but with Peyton Manning and Joseph Addai still waiting to play.  I figured I had a pretty safe chance of winning.  That was until the following thing happened: 15-56-1.  That’s carries, yards, TDs.  For Kenton Keith.  I realize Addai was still a bit banged up and the game wasn’t really on the line, but that’s a very bad thing.  Not only did I lose that game by about 4 points, but it looks like Keith is on his way to ruining the fantasy season of millions of people who had the 4th-7th pick in their drafts.  Addai looked like a sure thing for 2000 total yards and well over 10 TDs this year.  Now?  Who knows.  All I know is that I’m left with Addai who is in a platoon, Marvin Harrison who I am willing to bet will announce season ending surgery soon for his knee and Willie Parker who might have 1700 rushing yards with 2 TDs.

The bright side?  I’m playing the guy in 1st place this week.  He’s undefeated.  Wait, I was talking about the bright side of all this, wasn’t I?  Well, he did just lose Ronnie Brown for the year.  I might have a shot, especially with Brandon Jacobs playing a scrimmage against the all stars from the UK 60-and-older lawn bowling league this week.

Also, due to the depression related to my lost fantasy season (at least in the league I commish for), I’m not doing an updated ranking this week.  If I did, the Giants would move up a few spots and the Jags would move down a few.  I still think the Giants are going to have their yearly implosion at some point.  I know they have the added motivation of Tiki Barber being a tremendous douche to them, but don’t we see the Giants make a run like this every year?

I do have one question… if the Pats go 19-0 the same year the Dolphins go 0-16, will the world start turning the opposite direction?  Will the NFL move the entire 2008 season to Sri Lanka?  Will Don Shula turn into Mothra?  I want to see what happens, but I’m also very afraid.
