So we almost did something different with our FanDuel post this week. Almost. But Morgan Freeman himself came down from on high to preserve the status quo. One of the remnants from that near-change is the revised title of this piece, which includes a nice wordplay between fantasy sports and fantasies I have in my mind.Please, blog, may I have some more?
No more bye weeks! This is great news for everyone whose team isn’t riddled with injuries. QBs seem to be dropping like flies with concussions and other assortments of injuries, but for some teams (Jacksonville, I’m looking at you), that’s not necessarily a bad thing.Please, blog, may I have some more?
So this was it. This was the night that Matt Cassel could’ve saved his starting job. Could’ve saved the Chiefs from a 1-7 start and from forcing Chiefs fans into watching the Brady Quinn era unfold before their nearly gouged out eyes. Cassel could not have asked for a better matchup to prove his mettle as the Chargers ranked 10th worst in terms of fantasy QBs scoring against them. Ok, he could’ve asked for the New Orleans Saints but he already went against them and failed. This was supposed to be a hungry Matt. A Matt that wanted to reclaim his job and prove he was worthy of a starting quarterback job in the NFL. Instead of seeing resiliency, Cassel treated us to dormancy as he threw for only 181 yards while turning the ball over twice for defensive touchdowns. Sure, the INT could’ve been caught by his receiver but he could’ve thrown it a bit better. No reason to throw a bullet to a guy 10 feet away from you and if you do, maybe you shouldn’t throw it high and a little behind. Actually, if Matt were a country singer that should be his first single: ‘High And A Little Behind’. I’m picturing a sad ballad there. Decent drives turned to mush the moment the Chiefs got in scoring territory as I like to call it ‘the area where your QB needs to be accurate’. The death of fantasy relevance hangs heavy in Chiefdom tonight and the blood will be on Cassel’s hands. Welcome to Brady-ocrity, KC. In other fantasy football news…
Dwayne Bowe - Bowe looked like the WR2 you drafted tonight, despite the fumble: 79 yards on 8 receptions. If it weren’t for inaccuracy, he might’ve tacked on a touchdown. Now he’ll be stuck with the Charlie Sheen offense: Quinning! Doesn’t matter if you have Tiger Blood, you still need to get thrown to and Brady won’t be doing that much. Hard to think the offense could get worse than tonight but believe me, this Brady Bunch won’t be fantasy family friendly.Please, blog, may I have some more?
So, last week I promised a 90210 flavored post. My female readers have gone as far as to offer me fellatio to get this done and trust me, I’m working on it. Then again, offers such as fellatio, sometimes aren’t’ enough.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s pretty hard to believe that we’re halfway through the 2012 NFL season. I know there’s 17 weeks, but with most leagues wrapping up their championships in week 16, it’s a good mid-point marker.
When you’re halfway through and have a middling or losing fantasy team, it’s easy to feel like you’re already out of it. But just think about how much time is left. Halfway through Titanic they hadn’t even hit the iceberg. Halfway through the Republican Nomination Race, Herman Cain was leading polls. Point is – there’s still a lot of time.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I hit on this point last week, but a lot of times a career game from a mid-level fantasy player will cloud owners into thinking their player is all the sudden an elite fantasy option. This is virtually never the case – the career game an outlier more than a shift in offensive output.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Is there anything better then NFL football? Well, maybe NFL football with NFL referees, but hey, it’s not stopping me from watching. How has this sport not caught on worldwide? Truly befuddling. But who cares about any other countries? This is America baby.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Have you ever opened a brand new pack of Starburst only to find that most of them are yellow? It’s easily one of the worst feelings ever, but even worse is realizing that one or two of your key WRs are going up against one of the top cornerbacks in the league. Matchups play a key role in fantasy football and if you want to be the best, you need to keep your eye out for matchups to both avoid and exploit. You’ll never hear me say you should bench Calvin Johnson, unless he will physically be somewhere other than on the field when the Lions are playing, but even the best wide receivers can have an off day. When they find themselves stranded on Revis Island, for instance.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hi all, this is Sky speaking to you in italics. I’m simply here to remind everyone we’re doing Razzball Commenter Leagues this year again. If you’d like to join one of our leagues or to create your own, go check out our 2012 RCL sign-up. Alright, now back to your regularly scheduled Kevin.
Rookie production in 2011 was a mixed bag.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’re gonna milk this top whatever gravy train from here until sundown. Wait, how exactly do you milk a gravy train? And now that I look up the definition of gravy train – An occupation or other source of income that requires little effort while yielding considerable profit – I really wish I’d picked a better analogy cuz this stuff ain’t easy! This piece will only cover their rankings and be minimal in verbosity because I’ve already written in good detail about these guys in their own top 20 rankings in our 2012 Fantasy Football Rankings. This post is simply to highlight how the 80 after the top 20 overall shake out. So without further interruptions, I give you the remainder of the top 100 for fantasy football.Please, blog, may I have some more?
