Fantasy Football 2019 – Week 6

The Seahawks find themselves at 5-1. They took a very interesting route to get there and it’s hard to argue that they should have won every game, but in the end, they are finding ways to win. Next they have the Ravens at home. We’ll see if the refs blatantly pick the winner for this game like they have so boldly been doing in other games. Monday Night Football was particularly atrocious this week.

In our league, Luke’s reign of terror was brought to an end by Dad. Nick put together his best game of the season but didn’t quite find that first win. Next week the top four teams all square off against each other in what might be a preview of some playoff matches. The rest of us will run around aimlessly at the bottom wondering why we can’t score more points.

I’d like to take a minute to point out that the New England defense is going wild this year. They are the 11th highest scoring “player” in the league behind 9 quarterbacks and Christian McCaffrey. Who would have guessed they would be outscoring Aaron Rodgers in Week 6? Kudos to Tyler for that waiver pickup.

Tim is doing really well to still be up there in second place. He’s had the most difficult schedule so far. The weekly power rankings still have Luke on top though.

1. Luke (Helmetheads)
2. Tim (Beer-me)
3. Logan (Goat Roapers) +1
4. Tyler (Krazy Kanuck) +1

On to the weekly awards…

Fantasy Football 2019 – Week 5

The pass from Wilson to Lockett will be one of those that you see for years to come. If you haven’t seen it, go watch it and then argue at the water cooler about whether or not Wilson was throwing the ball away. That wasn’t the last amazingly lucky thing that happened during the game though. There was the unbelievable fingertip interception by Thompson and the highly improbable Zuerlein miss to hand the game to the Seahawks. They probably didn’t deserve the win, or some of their other wins so far, but they’re 4-1!

In our league, Tim smashed his own season record for the most points in a week… only to get the bad end of the “biggest blowout” for the week! Luke smashed Tim’s all-time record with 202.63 points! If you want to be really amazed, check out the points on Luke’s bench. His optimal lineup was 251! Keep in mind that Luke has only made one roster move this season. That’s quite the autodraft team! Elsewhere, Andy and Tyler both put up big scores only to see Andy win by 0.56. This all means that Luke is alone in first place and he is two games ahead of Tim, Tyler, Andy and Logan who are all 3-2.

It goes without saying that Luke is at the top of our power rankings, but here’s how the rest of the top 4 shake out:

1. Luke (Helmetheads)
2. Tim (Beer-me) +2
3. Andy (RAAAWWWRRRRR!!!) +2
4. Logan (Goat Roapers) -1

Fantasy Football 2019 – Week 4

The Seahawks got back on track this week against the hapless Cardinals. Pete Carroll’s nose was all patched up and Carson was holding onto the ball and staying on his feet. 3 and 1 is a great start to the season but they’ll have a tough test next week with the Rams at home.

In our league, Luke continued his undefeated streak and handed me a loss even though I had the second most points in the league. Yes, I’m bitter. Logan lost to Tim on Monday night even though he only needed 4.4 points from Juju to beat Tim. I assume Logan is bitter too. Tim gets the next crack at taking down his brother’s streak next week while I try to keep Nick from getting his first win.

With four weeks under our belts already, my pointless, inaccurate, custom power ranking algorithm is ready to go!

1. Luke (Helmetheads)
2. Ben (Kool Aid Kid)
3. Logan (Goat Roapers)
4. Tim (Beer-me)

Fantasy Football 2019 – Week 3

The Seahawks were a mess on Sunday. Chris Carson continued his league-leading fumble stat while also slipping all over the field. They stuck with the run despite limited success and bumbled their way to a loss in what should have been a game that was easier to win given the lack of Drew Brees. Meh.

In our league, Luke is now the sole owner of first place! I have the next chance to topple him from his perch. Elsewhere in the league, Dad got his first win over Tim who looked very strong the first two games and Andy broke out of his slump to win with the highest score this week.

Fantasy Football 2019 – Week 2

Drew Brees and Ben Roethesliesilseilberger are both out for a long time. Yikes! Ben wasn’t owned in our league but Nick will be scrambling to replace Drew. As for the Seahawks, they are now 2-0 despite their offensive line getting run over in the early part of the game. Getting sacked is one thing, getting sacked on two consecutive plays is another… getting sacked on two consecutive plays by the same player? Come on! Thankfully they were able to make some changes to avoid having a pancake at quarterback.

In our league, Tim continued his hot streak by posting the highest score again. The Scherschel brothers are holding down the top two spots and Tyler rounds out the trio of undefeated managers. Tyler and Luke play each other next week so one of them will get their first lost. Nick and Andy play each other next week so one of them will get their first win.

On to the weekly awards… notice that the season record and all time record for biggest blowout are both Luke beating Andy. Hmm…
