Barely squeaked by with a win this week in a stinker/bye week matchup in my money league.
67.36 to 61.44
Made some mistakes. Started Peyton Manning instead of O'Sully. Started Antonio Gates instead of Owen Daniels. Started the Saints D (waiver pickup for bye week Eagles) instead of starting no D. (-1 point! Solid!)
Still, my record is 6-1-0
In my work league I lost to the first place team. Which sucks, cause he on the whole, had a crap week. He got only 37.24 points from his QB, WR, WR, RB, TE, and K positions. Unfortunately for me he also got 101.38 points from his other RB, FLEX, and DEF.
Damn you Steven Jackson, LenDale White, and NYG.
I lost 121.92 to 138.62. I am in third place in that league, but with a tenuous 4-3 record. I feel like that league is the NFC West of Fantasy Football.
That brings us to the SF league where I destroyed some poor unfortunate last place soul 130.20 to 81.12 on the strength of my faith in/hope for Jake Delhomme's reconstructed elbow, My last minute waiver plug-in of Sammie Morris, the Ballsy running of Clinton Portis, speedy feet of Wes Welker, the foot of Ryan Longwell, and Da Bears D. I got no help from T.O., Plax, or Cooley this week.
Technically I am in fifth place. Though record-wise there are four of us with the same wins and losses, and all it takes is one week to turn spots 2-7 upside down. Good news for Steve.
I find it hilarious that all four of us currently "tied" for second place at 5-2 have more points than the person atop the leaderboard at 6-1. Gotta love that guy who inspires everyone to have their worst week while playing him.
Fantasy football, and football in general is pretty much the only thing that gets my mind off the things that hurt. Thanks for playing everyone!
