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.
