Fantasy Football Week 10 In Review And NFL Open Thread
Express Train to Oakland Derails Thunderlips!!!
The Thunderlips Express was not able to overcome the three players that had the worst team in football as their opponents. The Warriors picked on the hapless Raiders and scored almost half their points with just those three players. Still, coach Dman left the win on the bench with his poor switch to Roethlisberger instead of playing the QB he has had on the roster since the beginning of the year. It was a three point swing, but enough to overcome the one point loss. Thus earning the Squeak of the Week. Tu found a despondent coach Dman after the game.
Tu: Tough loss coach, but it looks like you found a way to lose this week.
Dman: Sigh, I do not need the salt in the wound Tu.
Tu: Just stating facts, coach. You left two players, Stafford and Wallace, on your bench. The strange thing was they have been on your team since the beginning, just for these byes, and then you dump them for others and get burned. I mean you put in a Giant for Pete’s sake!
Dman: Brilliant Thursday night quarterbacking, Tu. I was playing the defensive matchups. Roethlisberger and the Jets, Wallace and the second ranked WR defense of Detroit. I played the odds.
Streak of the Week
The ContumeliousAnalysts scornfully beat back a push by the Wildcats four clawed attack in Brees, Cook, Jones, and Lacy. Those four all scored above their projections, but it was not enough as they were weighed, measured, and found wanting by Bryant, Murray, Charles, and the Arizona Defense. Those four horsemen spelled doom as they scored equal to or more points than Waynesports’s four. Tu caught up with coach Jaybird after the game.
Tu: Another win. Does it get old doing it week after week?
Jaybird: I see this as how the world is supposed to work, actually.
Tu: I beg your pardon?
Jaybird: You get some brilliant debut album, some brilliant debut movie, some brilliant debut play and it’s because the artist doing this is asking advice from all of the skilled people he knows and, and this is the point, he’s following it. My first year playing had me taking 2nd place.
Tu: Go on.
Jaybird: My second year, I figured that I knew everything. And, similarly, you see all of these brilliant debuts turn into disappointing sophomore efforts… that’s because the artist has stopped asking advice and says “I know everything”. That year had me end up practically in the basement.
Tu: And so now you’re doing your third album, sadder and wiser?
Jaybird: Call me Gnarles Barkley.
Tu: Their third album isn’t out yet, Jaybird.
Jaybird: But it’s going to be awesome.
Peak of the Week
With four teams above 130 points this week the Levellers surprised the league with their second Peak of the Week for the season. Aaron Rodgers led the Levelling of Team (oh) Pooh Bears and also had huge games from five other players. The Bears tried the old strategy of not field a full team, but that was most likely because they had five players on a bye and another player out for injury. Still, the Week in Review has to wonder if Team Johnson sacrificed this game to secure Adrian Peterson for the play-offs. Only time will tell if this risk pays honey pots for Pooh Bear later this season.
The Quatrains of Nostradamus
The Levellers continue to defy Nostradamus with another Peak of the Week. While the You’re Going Down!South Dragons pulled off a victory the first time since week one against Brain’s Busted Team. Also, another team ignores the Quatrains and diverges from their fate and the Wildcats fall below their projected losses for the year.
Remember dear reader that the records listed below are the number of wins and losses still needed for Nostradamus to be proven right.
Team Pooh Bear: 3-0-1 AKA: The Anointed Ones
Thunderlips Express: 2-0-2
Waynesport Wildcats: 6-(1)-(1)
Partisan Warrior’s: 1-4-(1)
DownSouth Dragons: 5-(1) AKA: You Are Going Down!South Dragons
The Levellers: (3)- 7
Brian’s Best Team: 1-3
