Welcome to what I am going to call the greatest week of football ever conceived by the football Gods!!! Well, that’s what I call every week, but what’s it to ya? I usually get all serious on Sundays, but I know y’all are already wasted and trying to get a hold of your bookies and by bookies I mean your aunt who is a big Seahawks fan but she’s on a whale watching tour and you’ve got nobody to wager with. Well, I’m so addicted to daily fantasy that I’ll be fighting my computer to make a hundred teams while answering who do I start questions all while consuming an alcoholic beverage of my choice. It’s not antifreeze mixed with Dr. Pepper. And no, that’s not why they call me Doc! But my tongue is bluer than normal and why are neon turnips with legs and top hats crawling all over my face!!?
Ok, I’m back. We are officially bye weekin’ it now and I’m pretty sure there is someone out there starting Big Mike Williams. Yeah, he’s hurt. And not good. I picked up Randall Cobb in a league and am starting him and his 2 targets a game or whatever miniscule number it is. I’m too busy to even mess with waivers on all my teams so I probably have the #1 waiver priority in most of them! Woo hoooo! Suck it Trebek! I think I’d be good at fantasy football if I had time to fake manage my fake teams. Anyway, I’ve got a whole slew of links below that I think are neat and or keen. So check them out if you would. If not, well, I don’t know where you live. Well, except you, yeah, you know who you are.
Clint is updating the Injury Report as we speak. So check it out and throw some questions at him in the comments of that post. He needs some well earned harassment.
If you missed it a new dude stepped up with a pretty bad ass matchups post. Mike’s his name and fantasy football is his name. He just changed it while I was typing that.
