WEEK 11 RECAP
The weekly winner from week 10 is Andy. The closest to 22 points was Adam Thielan with 22.6. Congrats to Mr. Vosters.
Just a reminder to league members that the trade deadline is Saturday November 25th. So make those moves for your playoff push. (Antonio Brown is still available)
Good luck this week, dudes.
WINNING FROM HERE ON OUT
Matt has put together a pretty incredible run over the past 7 weeks. Opening the year losing 3 straight games, but then flipping the switch for a 7 week string of victories. Quite impressive, however Matt has been walking around work like D’Lo Brown…
Even without the services of Zeke Elliott, WinningFromHereOnOut is poised to make a championship run. Leading the league in both record and points. This is the same team that scored 49 points in week 2.
WinningFromHereOnOut squares off against The Cool Dudes this week in a battle for first place.
THE COOL DUDES
SCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOB had been riding a wave of 5 wins in a row until the 2-12 Train put an end to that. If Jacksonville could figure out how to get Leonard Fournette to consistently stay on the field, The Cool Dudes could take and hold control of first place. However, between Fournette’s nagging ankle injury, and being forced to sit out for violating team rules, Fournette is struggling to stay on track.
Nick is also rostering 2 kickers….bruh
As stated above, Nick and the Cool Dudes face off against WinningFromHereOnOut in a battle for first place.
THE BIG GRONKOWSKI
I’ll be honest, the last time I wrote a recap, I didn’t think Matt would be able to continue to hang within the top half of the league. A roster so heavy on one team is a questionable strategy, but he has made it work. Over the last several weeks, Matt has been able to weed out the lesser performing Patriots players and has assembled a contending roster.
In week 8, TheBigGronkowski benched all of his top Patriots players a week before their bye. So Matt basically volunteered to go 2 weeks without his best players. Matt had the rest of the league looking at his team like:
The BigGronkowski went 1-1 over that stretch, including week fuckin’ 9 over Fear The Beard.
Matt faces off against Butternut Squash in week 11.
Schmidt Schmidt has strung together a pair of losses at the worst possible time. With 3 teams above the Woodville Peckers, and 3 teams below battling for that 4th and final playoff spot. Le’Veon Bell did him no favors with his week 11 performance, falling short of his projection by just under 7 points. Not a huge amount, but not a good start nevertheless.
All that being said, The Woodville Peckers know what it takes to win a title (2015). Now isn’t the time to doubt them.
Eric squares off against HingleMcCringleBerry in week 11.
FEAR THE BEARD
Easily the league’s worst playoff contending team, Eric enters week 11 in serious jeopardy of falling out of the playoff picture. Having lost the last 2 weeks, and needing his kicker to put up 21 points the previous week, otherwise this would be a 3 week losing streak.
Fear the Beard is in 5th place, despite having a negative point differential. The outlook is bleak for Eric. HOWEVER, Fear the Beard had a very good Thursday night, and is projected to get that much needed W. I don’t trust Mike to not put up 3294182937412 points though, so we’ll see what happens. A victory, and a Woodville Peckers loss would vault Fear the Beard into the 4th and final playoff spot.
THE 2-12 TRAIN
One of these team names that starts with “The” needs to go ahead and use all caps for the first word like THE Ohio State. THE 2-12 Train has a nice ring to it.
Just when we thought Mike’s season was lost, THE 2-12 Train has been able to win 2 of 3 games and find themselves firmly placed in the playoff hunt. A large point total has Mike winning any sort of tie breaker that would prevent him from getting that final playoff spot. If Fear The Beard can finish this week strong, that would most likely be curtains for Mike.
Mike has had Eric’s number in the playoffs since league conception, so being able to knock him out of the playoff hunt would be so very satisfying.
Andy finally assigned his own name to his team. Mr. Vosters, an expecting father has opted to name his team after the size of his child as it develops. Kinda cool, right?
Anyways…Andy, who is notorious for never checking his fantasy team has somehow found himself with a record of 5-5. Still alive in the playoff hunt. I think he owes a big assist to his wife for setting his lineup every Sunday morning.
It’s tough to write this as I’m looking at Mike Evans and Tyreke Hill on Butternut Squash’s bench while Randall Cobb and Terrance Williams are presently starters. Andy could have also started Delanie Walker on Thursday…..bruh
Abby Andy has won 3 of his last 4. Does he have enough to slow TheBigGronkowski down?
Jordan has consistently struggled to put up points this year. HingleMcCringleberry is averaging 81.78 points in losses compared to 116.96 in winning weeks. If Jordan was able to find a way to average somewhere in the middle, his team would be right there in the thick of the playoff hunt.
I don’t want to say that Jordan’s season as far as the playoffs is probably over, but the current projection of my team is 8-6, TWO spots out of the 4th playoff spot. So if 8 wins, doesn’t get it done, Jordan winning out to a 7-7 record probably doesn’t get it done. You never know though.
The road to 7-7 starts this week against the Woodville Peckers. Good luck, Jordan.
Pack Attack has had a rough year. Jeff had been in a downward spiral, losing 6 of his last 7 until his ol’ pal Eric came along and took the L. I guess that was payback for losing to Eric by .4 of a point in week 1.
Pack Attack has been where good quarterbacks go to die. First with Aaron Rodgers, and then Carson Palmer. I was half expecting Ben Roethlisberger to get broken in half on Thursday night, but he had a very, very good game, including 3 touchdown passes to Antonio Brown. (who is still available)
Much like Jordan, Jeff would have to win out to reach a 7-7 record, which would be very respectable, but most likely not enough to attain a spot in the playoffs.
We have to give Doug a lot of credit here. Having lost 9 games in a row, Doug continues to set his lineup and make roster moves. That’s kind of a big deal. I appreciate that, dude.
Doug hasn’t had much luck in this league, and has broken his leg in real life as well.
There is a light at the end of the tunnel though. Doug will be spending this week’s Packer game in a suite at Lambeau, and The Consolation Bracket gives Doug a fresh start and an opportunity to win some of his money back.
