Fantasy football: Week 5 pickups
Wanna hear my fantasy sob story of the week? In our ultra-competitive Tribune league, I was up 3 points late in the Sunday night game with Eagles QB Michael Vick playing against Philly kicker Alex Henery. With the ball inside the 10 late in the game, Vick -- with 50 rushing yards -- inexplicably runs backward for a yard on third down, putting him at 49 rush yards and dropping me a point. Then Henery comes in to kick the field goal for 3 points to finish me off. Oof!
Did that bore you? Well, nobody likes to hear your fantasy stories, either. ... Now that I got that off my chest, on to the pickups! -- Matthew Wood
