Hey did you survive the first round? Like, comment and subscribe below if you did! Sorry, thought I was running a youtube blog. Wait, are those even real? I don’t think you can blog on youtube. Just post really pointless comments that nobody reads and even when they do and respond, they don’t actually read the response to what you said. So youtube should just be videos sans comment section. Glad we cleared that up! Now what was I talking about…oh yeah, Josh McCown. Did I say he was gonna be good this week? Let’s take a magical ride back to last Thursday and find out in my weekly rankings…yup! Sure, Jared Cook dropped a deuce, Torrey Smith farted while your mouth was open and the Bengals started CBs off the street against the Colts but hey, I got one right…RIGHT?!? It was a rough rankings week, I’m not gonna lie. As Tehol pointed out on twitter to me, I got my Bens mixed up. Ben Tate didn’t do well and Big Ben did. But of course, Tehol chides yet also loves when it’s appropriate. Speaking of Tehol…TeholBeddict47? Is that like 47 Ronin? And is it just me or does Keanu’s movie sound more like a play call at the line than it does a samurai movie…but I’m digressing. And of course, what do you expect? The biggest fantasy scorer on the week is a 34 year old journeyman who has played for/been dropped by teams like the Cardinals, Lions, Raiders, Dolphins, Panthers, and 49ers which is not even mentioning his stint with the Hartford Colonials. So first I’ll briefly go over the stats: 27/36 for 348 and 4 passing TDs along with a rushing touchdown and a 2 point conversion. With the zero interceptions, that’s pretty much glory defined. Can’t beat it. Not even Peyton Manning could. The reality is he probably should’ve had at least 2 INTs on the night and is still a 34 year old journeyman. I do think this game says much more about two things: the Dallas defense and Marc Trestman. Never trust one, always trust the other. I don’t care who Trestman has at the helm next year – Cutler, McCown, a junior high 3rd string QB – I’m gonna want in on it. And to be fair, I’m not doing this to say McCown is terrible. You still have to execute to get a statline like that and he has so far as a starter with a 13:1 TD to INT ratio. Even if you’re getting lucky, that’s hard to do. All I’m saying is I care about Trestman and nothing else. I’ll ride through the fantasy desert on a QB horse with no name if Marc is leading the way. Here’s to what I hope was a successful week 14 run and and you’re even closer to that sweet championship. And with that, let’s see what else there was to see from MNF for 2013 Fantasy Football…Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, Thursday Night the New York Giants called their primary physician to see what their status was. They’re PP – I’m not touching this joke with a ten foot pole…the joke is a Giant’s PP…maybe you shouldn’t touch it either; might be infected – decided that because it was the NFC East that maybe they could just take another penicillin shot. I don’t care how much penicillin you take at this point, the problem still exists. Tom Coughlin has been a great coach. Well, ok, a good, so-so, ok great coach. But now you’re gonna talk to me about Super Bowl rings as your shining note, arncha? Well, here’s some math that might calm your nerves. One of these coaches has a record of 83-67 since 2004 since the 2004 season. The other, an 84 and 64 record since the same season. Both have 3 NFC East titles at this point in history. So what’s the difference? Super Bowls. Mainly, two of them. Tom Coughlin and his Giants can hang their hat on 2 SB rings while Andy Reid and the Eagles have none. Yet only one team has moved on from it’s coach. Fair? Given the 0-6 start to the Giants, it doesn’t matter whether it’s fair. What matter is, ‘what Giants are retainable vs trade-worthy’ and at this point, I’m considering all the receivers as buy lows. The defense is stopping nothing at this point, no reason to think the wide outs can’t benefit on some level. The RBs? Ehhhhh, not interested until Andre’s back. The QB? That…that is a question wrapped within an enigma trapped inside a riddle and folded up inside a used baby diaper. It was a night only an 0-6 team could muster and I’m pretty sure Tom Coughlin’s gonna be the scapegoat when this mess of a season is finally over. Is he partially to blame? Sure, his treatment of David Wilson was extremely poor given his other choices behind him. You don’t play mind games with your lead running back when he’s backed up by a guy nicknamed ‘Frankenstein’ but Coughlin isn’t the only problem in New York for this extremely overdone season.

It seems to happen every year. Ok, it’s now happened for two straight years at least but that’s NFL years. In human years, that’s more akin to 13. But back to the scoop, DeAngelo Williams has gone from fantasy flatliner to fantasy freak all over again when the last 4 weeks arrive. After finishing the […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
So it feels weird doing this post seeing as there’s really nothing to get excited about but I felt it would be wrong of me to stop at the top 40 for wide receivers. Consider this post my commitment to you and the inability to stop typing once I get going. So, before we move […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
What’s up folks? Good luck to all of you during the mad rush to the playoffs and may all of your fake players play really well. There weren’t a whole lot of surprises on the target front this week so what I’m going to do is try to give you some insight into guys I […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Life works as a series of memories; those that are accessed with greater ease and more difficulty that all define who we are. What’s great about fantasy sports (and sports in general) is that they work the same exact way. Now maybe I’m just way too into fantasy and maybe I have an overactive memory, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
What’s up fans of football, fake and real? Can you freakin’ believe the 49ers are 8-1 and the Eagles are 3-6? Sorry Drew but I had to rub it in. My old school profile picture of Ronnie Lott beats your old school Randall Cunningham any day. I just had to get that off my chest. […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Take a look at the rankings for the rest of the season and week’s 15 and 16 for opponent’s rush and pass defense below. The lower the number the tougher the opponent. Rush Defense Schedule Miami has a nice schedule against the run, but of course their running back situation is a little muddled, but […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hey gang. This is the first week in a while that we are finally sans bye week. No one is off limits and your only problem is figuring out whom to bench. Let the games begin! Week Niner…Are You Calling From a Walky Talky? Vincent Jackson-I guess it’s either three touchdown receptions or nothing with […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
There aren’t a ton of must pick ups, but I feel pretty good about the guys that are on this list. Roy Helu: He’s the Redskins starting running back for today and in fantasy football that’s all we can really ask for. Against the 49ers Helu was on the field for 65 plays and Ryan […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
