They say good things come in pairs and for the most part they’re right. Who’s this ‘they’ you keep talking about? You wouldn’t know them, it’s the Royal They, Imaginary Reader. So you’re just making another long-winded intro about nothing then. Yes, and you’re extending. Duly noted, please proceed. As I was saying, good things come in pairs is the idiom which I can agree with most times. I mean, for the expecting family who wants to have at least two kids, maybe they start out with twins? And even if they don’t, there’s always the black market, right? Woah, wait I guess we shouldn’t talk about how I’m able to spend all my time righting about fantasy sports…moving on! There’s socks, shoes, pants, breasts, doublemint gum, double rainbows…the list of frivolous things that totally ruin the meaning of the phrase goes on. But you know what isn’t good in pairs? Injuries. Specifically the broke bone variety. After being sidelined last year with the same ailment, Andre Brown yet again with a broken left leg and I get to mark him as the second casualty to my pre-baseball All-Star break auction draft team. Yeah, the one with roster limits that were, ahem, added AFTER we drafted. I’m farting in your general direction, Pianowski. Nevertheless, Brown was supposed to be the 3rd down back for short yardage, namely the goal line. Well, that’s not happening for 4-6 weeks. And when he gets back? Who knows who’ll take his role on the Giants. Maybe that role won’t be needed anymore. In any event, for those who’ve drafted I hope you have an IR slot that’s not already filled by Percy or Le’Veon or…well, you get the point. It’s a rough sport these guys play. With any luck, we’ve all still got our goal line back for the Giants once his leg has mended…again. In other 2013 Fantasy Football news…
David Wilson – Yeah, he’s rocketing up the charts for me. Probably my 15th back off the board at this point; I’ll be doing a final swing at rankings this weekend. Maybe I can figure out why the Standard section keeps mucking up on me. Wish me luck!
Quinton Patton – When a QB loves a wideout! He can’t throw to no one else…he’d trade Anquan Boldin in for the good thing he’s found. That’s a little Michael Bolton for you on a Friday. You’re welcome. I’m only half kidding about the Boldin thing but remember when I said he could be useful but I think Kaep will find someone else before the season ends to be his primary wideout target? Yep, you might be witnessing it right now. Patton’s a rookie and will have some rookie problems but consider this the final call on Patton. Could be a breakout player with where his ADP is.
Robert Griffin, III – Cleared to play week 1. Y’all were like ‘RGIII the 5th best QB this year? Isn’t he hurt?’ and I be all like ‘This is how I roll, animal print pants outta control’ and you be like ‘I’m done reading your blog’. What I’m trying to say is I’m sexy and I know it and the RGIII discount was silly in the first place. WIGGLEWIGGLEWIGGLEWIGGLE, YEAH.
