Fantasy Football Week In Review And NFL Open Thread (If We Need One)
Thunderlips put the Wildcats in a full Nelson!
Thunderlips Express pulled out a solid win against Waynesport Wildcats on the back of Jordy Nelson’s 34 point outing. Only The Express’s kicker and defense scored above their projections, while the Wildcats’ Marques Colston rocked the donut and it all added up to another W for the Thunderlips Express. Tu caught up with coach Dman.
Tu: Lucky win tonight coach.
Dman: Luck?! We beat them by fifteen points!
Tu: Yet most of your team under performed and it took the heroic efforts of one player to raise you above the other team.
Dman: Tu, you and I both know that many wins come on the backs of just a few players. I also scored the second highest points for the week.
Tu: Just because other teams did not play well, does not mean your did coach.
Dman: True, but this was a defensive week all around the league. Only one team for this whole week scored above their projections! Sheesh!
Meek, Freak, and Peak of the Week!
How many more accolades can go to one team in one week? The Analysts were Contumelious to both their opponent and Nostradamus this week by scoring 21 points above their projection. Then they were helped out by the Warriors having an internal Partisan fight with a 5-4 split in players being above or below their projection. We were sure that coach Jesse was a little Green around the gills as A.J. traipsed off off the field with turf toe. Tu talked with coach Jaybird after the game.
Tu: Very surprising win coach. What did you do differently this week?
Jaybird: I remembered something that my friend Dman told me once. “All you need is for your guys to just show up and have one of your guys go crazy.”
Tu: That’s it?
Jaybird: That’s what I asked him. “That’s it?”
Tu: And he said?
Jaybird: He said “Well, it helps if the other guy’s team only barely shows up and one of his guys crashes and burns.”
Tu: That’s some insight.
Jaybird: Now I just have to figure out how to apply it regularly.
APB for Bear that beat Defenseless Team!
Brian’s Best Team came up short against Team Pooh Bear by 6 points and they did not even have a defense to play!! They could have taken a sorry defense like Dallas or the Browns (against the Saints no less) and would have pulled out a victory. This ones will make Nostradamus roll over in his grave…. To give Brian a high five for keeping his predictions on target.
The Quatrains of Nostradamus
It seems Nostradamus may have known more than we thought. Who could have guessed that a missing defense would help keep his predictions alive?
Remember, dear reader, that the records listed below are the number of wins and losses still needed for Nostradamus to be proven right.
