Tell us a time when you started a player, and that player scored negative points to lose you the week

A number of years ago I coasted into the Fantasy playoffs in a work league. First round was against a guy who beat me in the regular season and I was pretty salty about it. I was streaming defenses and decided my play that week was my beloved Raiders. Raiders had been playing well and were going against the Jets who had scored 6 points combined in their last two games.

The Jets, with Geno Smith at quarterback, won 37-27. Smith only threw one pick and took one sack. The Raiders lost me a point and I lost by less than a point. I would have won if I had played literally any other defense that week, or even just left the spot blank. Only the Raiders lost me that week. I was top scorer the last two weeks of the playoffs.
