You know this blog wouldn’t be anything without the weekly Fantasy Football update. After the last couple of weeks of tough losses I was thinking along the same lines as Jim Mora:
Playoffs? You kidding me! Playoffs!?
After losing 90 to 91 to one of the worst teams in the league I thought it was over. But I guess there is some BCS magic out there that tabulated my stats in such a concocted and arbitrary way that I retained the 4th seed and made the playoffs.
Of course, that means that I am taking on the number one seed who trounced me with triple digit scores the two times we matched up earlier. But lo and behold things came together in the first week of our match up:
QB Kurt Warner, Ari v. StL 34-10 F 13
RB LaDainian Tomlinson, SD v. Oak 34-7 F 15
RB Peyton Hillis*, Den v. KC 24-17 F 12
WR Lee Evans, Buf v. Mia 3-16 F 2
WR Roddy White, Atl v. NO 25-29 F 16
TE Tony Gonzalez, KC v. Den 17-24 F 13
D/ST Colts D/ST, Ind v. Cin 35-3 F 26
K Rob Bironas, Ten v. Cle 28-9 F 4
TOTAL POINTS: 101
How ’bout them Colts? Boy that feels good. I am up 101 to 85 going into this week. And I am trying to decide between Pierre Thomas and Reggie Bush for the RB2 spot. Both were on the bench last week and both look to be performing well.
Bush catches balls out of the backfield and will be more useful against a bad Bears passing defense, but Thomas has been on fire getting more carries and more yards. Too bad Chi-Town has a good run defense, otherwise it would be a no-brainer.
