What’s happenin’ Razzballers? My week 8 matchup left me facing the age old fake football dilemma: who gets precedent, my real life team or my fantasy team? I’m from the Boston area, so naturally my team is the Patriots. When I looked at my week 8 matchup, I realized my opponent had both Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski on his roster. Pretty much killed my Sunday. For everyone who didn’t watch the game, the refs blew a late fourth quarter Brady to Gronkowski touchdown so obvious that my half-blind grandmother was even cheering. On top of that, Belichick must have forgotten that he hides the challenge flag in his sock because that’s the only reason I can think of as to why he didn’t challenge. The Patriots didn’t score a touchdown until two minutes later. It took the Patriots so long to score after the blown call/non-challenge that when the Pats got the ball back, now down 6, they had to go 79 yards in only 18 seconds. A fumble and a safety later and the game was over.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, not all of us got fake football chocolate cake, but week 8 was a good one for this old fake footballer. Unfortunately it’s time to say goodnight once again to the super charged football day and start preparing for next week by taking a quick look at what happened today.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Happy football day, Razzball nation! Doc is out wrestling grizzly bears, running with wolves, taming wild boars and generally creating breathtaking stories of perseverance and triumph to tell his future grandchildren some day. In other words, Doc is out on vacation this weekend so you’re stuck with me and my fantasy wisdom to get you all fired up for week 8 of your faux football season.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’ve been in mourning since the end of the NLCS and my Brewers got knocked out, but things are even worse with the Cardinals winning the Series in game 7. Seeing Tony La Russa scowl his way to a championship is about as bad as seeing Belichick do it.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Look at me! I’ve been upgraded to “expert” at FantasyPros.com. Very flattering, but I prefer to call myself a “fantasy football writer”. Fantasy Football is 15% skill, 25% draft, & 60% luck. Once you recognize that, you’ll learn not to get so angry when bad things happen to your team.Please, blog, may I have some more?
When you look at Week 7’s top 20 scorers, you see a few familiar names; Arian Foster, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Adrian Peterson, just to name a few. With guys like that manning the top of the leaderboards each week, it seems as if predicting who each weeks’ top performers will be is easy, right?Please, blog, may I have some more?
I don’t even want to talk about the week seven injuries, but I suppose I have to considering they play such a huge role in this crazy fake game we play. We lost four offensive players for the rest of the season last Sunday. Earnest Graham, Tim Hightower, Kerry Collins, and Chris Cooley. Done. Just like that. Others suffered injuries that will keep them out this week and beyond, and at this critical point in the fantasy season we can’t afford to lose many more players. You already know this, but it’s going to happen. It happens every week. Eff me in the effin’ eff.Please, blog, may I have some more?
