Welcome to Championship Sunday! I hope everyone had a great Christmas and got lots of stuff from the Planned Obsolescence Emporium! I know I did. Hopefully today you can get a few gifts from the Fantasy Gods. It’s nice to finally have a finals week without Peyton Manning and Tom Brady contemplating taking a seat to rest up and/or shoot a commercial. As I’ve tried to put together a FanDuel team for today I’ve had a lot of trouble. There are very few slam dunks this weekend and the one slam dunk fantasy game in Philly is going to have gobs of snow and wind. That wouldn’t keep me from starting the Eagles receivers and Vick, but the slam dunk is turning into a layup. So I’m not as confident in my teams this week, but I’ll forge ahead. We still need some teams to fill out our leagues. It really is a blast and if you are out of your draft and trade leagues it helps make those not so interesting games a little more interesting, so give it a shot here — League 1, League 2, and the 20 Team League.)
We do get a Festivus miracle in the doubtful status of MJD which gives Rashad Jennings a great matchup. Of course MJD owners aren’t jumping for joy. Hopefully you were able to grab RashJen. He should have fresh legs, had 7 receptions last week and is averaging 6.8 yards per carry (of course a 74 yard TD run does help, but take out that run and he’s still at 5.3). With Sims-Walker hurting we should see a lot of Jennings and his upside is very high. He will lead a lot of teams into the fantasy ditch or fantasy greatness this weekend (I’m putting my money on greatness).
Please, blog, may I have some more?
