Thanks (for nothing), Rex! (AKA - Week 3 of Fantasy Football)

I'll say it - Rex Ryan cost me a victory.  Via CBSSports.com:
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Following a two-touchdown performance, Bears tight end Martellus Bennett said he felt disrespected by New York Jets coach Rex Ryan leading up to Chicago's 27-19 Monday night victory at MetLife Stadium. 
"Today I felt a little disrespected," Bennett told reporters in the postgame locker room. "We [the Bears] played a highlight video, and in the highlight video, Rex is talking about [how the Bears] have monsters on the outside with [receivers] Brandon [Marshall] and Alshon [Jeffery], and he was like, 'Oh, yeah, the tight end is a big dude.' 
"I feel like when he talks about me he should talk about me with enthusiasm as well. He was just kind of monotone when he mentioned me. I was kind of [upset] about that. I feel like when somebody talks about me they should use some enthusiasm. 
"So I came out clicking. I was too jittery in the beginning trying to make a whole lot of plays, and I missed some balls here and there. But I kind of calmed down in the second half and got back to normal."

Getting "back to normal" meant dropping 22 points on me, in a game that I lost by 6 points. I did have a chance to win, but somehow did not start DeSean Jackson (going with Chris Johnson in the Flex position).  

Furthermore, my team has been decimated by injuries and suspensions - besides the AP situation, my starting TE is out for the season, and my other TE hasn't played since week one.  Back to the waiver wire!
