Fantasy Football – Week 6

The Seahawks had a bye week last week, but there wasn’t any shortage of NFL news including a broken clavicle for Aaron Rodgers. Fake SportsCenter had a great suggestion for a replacement QB.

In our league, Logan posted the third highest score but lost to the top score so his perfect streak is over. I consider this a bit of karma payback for his win last week with the second lowest league score. In fact, the top three teams all lost … and retained their top three positions. Things are a little tighter though with Austin and Andy tied for 4th and only one game behind Luke and Dad who are tied for second. Next week the top four teams all play each other so we’ll see how that shakes out. Please make sure you stay on top of your rosters with all the injuries and bye weeks.

Power rankings for week 7:

1. Luke (+1)
2. Austin (+2)
3. Logan (-2)
4. Jim (+3)

Fantasy Football – Week 5

The Seahawks pulled out another win against the Rams who seem to always win no matter how good either team is. The defense was outstanding pulling in 5 turnovers, some of them at critical moments in the game. The end of the game had plenty of drama but the Seahawks came out on top. They need to get that running game figured out though.

In our league, it looked like Logan might finally break his winning streak. He posted the second lowest score in the league but… Tim had the lowest score so Logan won. Luke and Dad won too, keeping them tied for 2nd place. There’s a gap back to fourth place where the rest of us are trying to figure out how to get pointed in the right direction.

Fantasy Football – Week 4

Seahawks! Now THAT was a fun game to watch. I liked the up tempo pacing of their offense (even if it does screw up my 30-second skip button between plays). The downside is that it means that their defense might not get a huge rest on drives that are duds. That did turn out to be the case in the first half so I was worried that we’d see another second half defensive breakdown, but that obviously didn’t happen as the offense set a franchise record for most second half points. The injury to Chris Carson was a big blow though. He looked like their featured back for the first four games but now they have to continue the search. Hopefully Procise and Rawls can get healthy and get moving downfield.

Logan’s domination of our league continued this week as I failed to even make him nervous. Dad and Luke are tied for second place and the rest of us are lagging behind them. Tim is still searching for his first win. Could he do it against undefeated Logan?

The Yahoo draft day projections had Logan in 6th and Dad in 8th which is a great data point to show how ineffective those rankings really are. Of course MY power ranking formula is my more valuable and accurate. We have four weeks in the books so it produces some results now:

1. Logan
2. Luke
3. Austin
4. Ben

A couple important notes for our league:

  • Bye weeks start this week so make sure you have a full roster.
  • Remember that our reminder emails aren’t working anymore. If you want reminders, that feature is available from the Yahoo website and/or the phone app.

Fantasy Football – Week 3

The Seahawks are 1-2. At least they scored a touchdown AND an extra point. There were some flashes of offense but it clearly wasn’t enough. After the game, I told a Packer fan that the odds weren’t looking good for a Seahawks/Packers playoff game. The Seahawks were pretty good odds for winning the Super Bowl before the season. Kudos if you were smart enough to bet against that. I’m not saying you can predict a season from 3 games, but they clearly aren’t dominating the league early on, even against teams like the 49ers.

Our league had low scores for the first two weeks but that ended this week with almost everyone breaking 100. Logan is the last man standing with an undefeated record. I’ll take the next shot at him in Week 4.

Fantasy Football – Week 2

The Seahawks got their first win of the season. Barely. Against the 49ers. That’s hardly inspiring. They also got their first touchdown of the season but we’ll keep waiting for that first extra point. It was nice to see Russell Wilson happily scrambling around though. Jimmy Graham has a total of 4 catches for 9 yards this year. Hopefully they can get him back on track and/or he can get through whatever injury is slowing him down.

In our league, all four of the undefeated teams faced each other. Logan and I came out on top so we are now the only undefeated teams left. Logan is leading our league in roster moves already this year. He has 5 and the next highest is 2. I think his mid to late season roster moves were really what set him apart last year so maybe we can gang up on him this year by being better about picking people up off waivers.
