Curse of the Autodraft

Frank Gore broke his hip in last night's win over the Arizona Cardinals and it was announced today that he will be out for the remainder of the season. This adds to what's been an absolutely ridiculous string of bad luck in my ESPN fantasy league. Of the three leagues that I'm playing in this year, this was the only one that didn't feature a live draft and the squad that was drafted for me has been just absolutely brutalized by injuries. Check this out.

1st Round Pick: Frank Gore - Broken Hip Week 12, out for season
2nd Round Pick: Ryan Grant - Torn Ligament in Ankle Week 1, out for season
3rd Round Pick: DeSean Jackson - Concussion Week 6, missed one game
4th Round Pick: Pierre Thomas - Ankle Injury Week 3, hasn't played since
5th Round Pick: Tony Romo - Broken Collar Bone Week 7, hasn't played since

Somehow, we've managed to overcome these losses and still sit at 7-5 and in 4th place going into the last week of the regular season, but DAMN. Who thinks an 18 game season is a good idea???
