Fantasy Football Week In Review: Week 8
Unenlightened Team Take Express Trip to Home of the Blues!!
Despite the lack of production from four players, the untrained play of Wislon and Williams turned those double W’s into a big L. This win catapults Thunderlips into 3rd place and they still hold onto the most points scored in the league. Week in Review’s reporter, Tu Nosi, talks to the winning coach.
Tu: Another win coach. Though this one was close with a bunch of under performing players on your side.
Dman: So? I still won and had strong outings by some of my lower players.
Tu: Are you concerned about the poor play of Julius Thomas these last few games?
Dman: No, his back up J. Reed is doing great. I get back next week a surging Rivers and Mathews. Life is good.
Tu: We shall see coach. You are about to go into the bye weeks for your big receivers and you have been relying on them heavily.
Dman: Thanks for the reminder… not.
Peak of the Week
One scores 35 and two others score 27. Unfortunately, that happened on both teams! Yet at that point the coyote tried the Acme catapult and drove Randle, Griffin, and Gonzalez into the ground with himself, while Tigger bounced the Wright way and had solid outings from 6 players.
Sneak of the Week
33 point underdogs, Tebow has been kicked to the curb, Did the Scorned Intangibles have any chance to win this game? Yet the spirit of Tebow lived on, as the foundation under Team Sandcastle turned out to be made of sand! (Who knew?) Coach Steve saw only three players score at or above what was expected. Tu flagged down Coach Jaybird for an interview.
Tu: Coach! How did you win without Tebow. Don’t tell me you finally came to your senses about him.
Jaybird: We certainly didn’t kick him to the curb. It’s just that we had a bye week from heck and needed him to be our lockerroom leader from the free agent pool this week.
Tu: And the next, apparently?
Jaybird: Well, we’re having a bit of a drought when it comes to all kinds of players, you see. When it rains, it pours, especially when it comes to byes.
Tu: Well, there’s certainly a shortage of culture war quarterbacks sitting on benches when they had been cut before the season even started.
Jaybird: We need more of those.
Tu: Again, I am speechless.
Weak and Reek of the Week
One team only had one player score at or above their expected points and the other team only had three. Both teams also had a player score 0 and 1 points each. I guess this is what the league calls parity… Still, Brian’s Best Team played the lowest point team and limped into being the best in the league.
Freak of the Week
Coach Tod’s team turned the other cheek this week and had every single player under-perform for the week , while the Warriors had two players score double the points expected. This caused the biggest blowout of 71 points occur for the second week in a row and the Warriors move into 2nd place. The Week in Review taps the new Expert for their opinion on this game. Expert, “Madre del amor hermoso! ¿Qué tipo de juego terrible del fútbol tiene los resultados en los años veinte o treinta años?” Great insight, Expert, I think.
The Oracle Update:
The Oracle breathes a sigh of relief as it loses no other teams this week. Though there was an intense match between the two proponents of the offensive philosophy of not fielding full teams. Both had two players score zero points, but Nine, Ten, Eleven had the insanity that was Calvin Johnson and the crazy last second win from Detroit.
