Sup dudes? Welcome to the 2017 World Supreme Championship fantasy football season. In a perfect world, I would be pumping out a recap every week until the end of the year, culminating in a yearly recap. However, if you’ll scroll down you’ll notice that I had 1 post from week 3 of last year and never posted again. I will make a concerted effort to find time, but no promises.
The weekly winner this week goes to WinningFromHereOnOut who accumulated the most points. Props to Matt for finally getting that W
We will go from team to team in order of the standings as of Wednesday night.
Following this year’s draft, Yahoo projected Mike’s squad to finish at 2-12, hence the name. Then Kareem Hunt happened and now the 2-12 Train is currently projected to finish the 2017 campaign at 12-2. Mike’s team seems to be in the playoff/championship hunt year in and year out and the 2017 roster promises that this year is no different.
Who let Mike draft AJ Green, Odell Beckham Jr, and Kareem Hunt?
RUN IT OR CELEK
The Woodville Peckers Run it or Celek, the 2015 Champion come in ranked #2 (as of week 4). It’s tough to predict what kind of longevity Eric’s squad will have after the season ending injury to Dalvin Cook.
Minnesota can’t have nice things.
Schmidt Schmidt was able to acquire Aaron Jones who, in my opinion, will be the Packers every down back by season’s end. Ty Montgomery just doesn’t have the durability to last an entire season.
One issue I have with this team is the name. Not that it has anything to do with the paper mill, but because Run It Or Celek doesn’t even have a Celek on it. There’s 2 to choose from, dude.
The Woodville Peckers Run it or Celek square off against the 2-12 train in week 5. I believe in you.
Mandelbaum!! Mandelbaum!! Mandelbaum!!
THE BIG GRONKOWSKI
Again with the team name…you don’t have Gronk, dude. You have all of the other Patriots though. (Gronk is available, if you’re interested)
Matt is new to the league, but hasn’t wasted any time establishing his spot in the playoff race. After getting off to a rough start in week 1, TheBigGronkowski has rattled off 3 victories in a row. Being so relient on one team to play well that week is unorthodox, but it is working so far for Matt in 2017.
5 of Matt’s players will be in action Thursday night. I try to avoid Thursday night whenever possible, but that’s not really an option for TheBigGronkowski.
The last Thursday night game for New England, Matt’s starters combined for a total of 19.98 points, 1884 points fewer than their projections. OH, AND HE DIDN’T START MR. 3 TOUCHDOWNS MIKE GILLISLEE!!
FEAR THE BEARD
Eric enters 2017 as the longest tenured player not to win a title. Ugh. Perhaps 2017 is the year, but Fear the Beard needs a quarterback in the worst way. Cam Newton was thought to be a solid choice, but he was too busy being terrible and now dissing female reporters. Cam is gonna Cam, I guess. It is kind of satisfying that, even after a nice showing and win over the Patriots, nobody has picked him up off waivers. Maybe we are all in agreement that Cam sucks ass.
Anyways, Fear the Beard has been able to cobble together a 3-1 record, but it has got to be the most trash 3-1 record in the history of fantasy football. Being unable to score over 100 points in a 10 team league is pretty bad, regardless if the league is PPR or not….which is SHOULD be.
Fear the Beard faces off against a Mild Concussion squad that is severely handicapped by the bye week.
THE COOL DUDES
Nick was a late entry into our league. Taking over a team post draft after Josh did some Josh stuff and flaked out. I’m getting fired up just thinking about it…..fuckin’ Josh. I applaud Nick on the team name. If I could give The Cool Dudes a W just for his team name, I would…but I can’t.
Paying $50 to take control of a team that you didn’t even draft takes some guts. So does leasing a ’17 Chevrolet Equinox (drum)
The Cool Dudes have a nice, perhaps league best stable of running backs in LeSean McCoy, Melvin Gordon, and Leonard Fournette. If Nick can figure out how to surround those running backs with some wide receiver talent, The Cool Dudes will be in the mix at year’s end.
Really dude? Were 4 weeks into the season and you still can’t figure out a team name? C’mon man
Matt finally got his 1st win of the season in week 4. Only 1 week after changing to his current team name. However, it is impressive for WinningFromHereOnOut to go from being dead last in the league in points and winless, to ranked 7th in only a week’s span.
Maybe there is an advantage to leading the lead in roster moves??
WinningFromHereOnOut pretty much squares off against the entire Patriots team this Thursday night. Friday’s work day will be either really awesome, or the fuckin’ worst depending on how the Tampa Bay/New England game goes.
Good luck, dawg
Doug started off the year with a victory over
the New England Patriots TheBigGronkowski, but has failed to notch a victory in each of the past 3 weeks. The schedule has done Doug no favors as EVERYBODY appears to be on a bye week. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesh. The way Fear the Beard has been playing, Doug has a chance to come out of week 5 with a victory. Gronk being out is a start. Ugh
Jordan has had a bad start to the season. His only victory so far was over a lowly WinningFromHereOnOut team still trying to figure things out. In fact, Jordan has been averaging 79.65 points. (I even rounded up for ya, dude) That’s reeeeally reeeeally not good.
This isn’t Jordan’s first rodeo though. I have all the confidence in the world that he will figure it out. Will HingleMcCringleBerry be able to get it together fast enough to get back in the playoff hunt?
I feel like every Packer game I watch, it seems like Jeff has 1,000 points between Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson. Unfortunately, Pack Attack is going to need the rest of his team to start carrying their weight if Jeff is going to get out of the cellar.
Jeff has the pieces to perhaps make a trade or 2, but that would require parting with one or both of his home team studs. Marshawn Lynch and Jay Ajayi aren’t going to get it done….at least not from what I’ve seen so far.
Grandpa Jeff squares off against HingleMcCringleBerry in week 5, in a battle of bottom feeders.
