Yep, I’m lazy and posting this on the Thursday before week 8 games start again…that’s just how I roll, live with it and love it. At this point, you know what you need to make a solid run and are either feverishly picking apart the waiver wire or are trying to make some trades. It’s a tough time for lots of the people in the league as some bogus shit will probably start happening now. Crazy trades that would have never happened in week 1 are now being offered and acceppted, with you being left wondering, “hey is this legit, or are they just trying to let that other guy win it.” It’s a thin line between legit and tanking trades, but do what ya gotta do I guess. So enough of that, let’s get to who did us right and who did us oh so wrong last week.
Stars of the Week
QB – Drew Brees – 377 yards and 4 TDs. Are the Saints back? Nope, they are just starting to play bad teams. They won’t keep winning, but Brees will keep putting up numbers.
RB – Chris Johnson – 195 yards, 2 TDs. He’s back!! NOPE..he played Buffalo…he still sucks
RB – Adrian Peterson – 153 yards, TD. All Day. AP. Whatever you wanna call him, my man is nice.
WR – Vincent Jackson – 7 catches, 216 yards, 1 TD. Oh and one drag down inside the 5. You not scoring that TD probably cost some owners in fantasy like it cost your real life team a victory.
WR – Randall Cobb – 8 catches, 89 yards, 2 TDs. Greg who?? So long as Jennings is out this dude is a top WR.
RB/WR – Victor Cruz – 7 catches 131 yards, TD. Remove that 77 yard TD catch at the end and his day was meh, but my Skins unfortunately can’t remove that play. Ugh I hate the Giants.
TE – Rob Gronkowski – 6 catches, 78 yards, 2 TDs. They still somehow had a close game against the JETS…keep throwin the ball Tommy boy.
K – Nick Folk – Almost won the game for the Jets, before the Jets realized they were the Jets…
DEF – Houston Texans – Made the Ravens look horrible forevermore (see what I did there?!). 4 sacks, a safety, 2 interceptions and a Touchdown. Solid.
Assholes of the Week (Assholes because I done said it yo)
QB – Christian Ponder – 58 yards, TD, 2 INTs…man all you need to do is just throw it to Percy or hand it off to AP. Stop being so stupid.
RB – BenJarvus Green-Ellis – If this was a real “lawfirm” it’d be shut down for lack of production. 69 yards. That’s it. I actually blame this one on coaches.
RB – Stevan Ridley – Bro, the Jets, how do you have a bad against them?? 65 yards, at least catch a pass or something!!
WR – AJ Green – One catch 8 yards and a TD. Bengals coaches, if his one catch was a TD, don’t you think you should throw to him more? Thank you..ugh.
WR – Calvin Johnson – 3 catches, 34 yards. Mega horrible. Lots of drops too.
RB/WR – Larry Fitzgerald – 4 Catches, 29 yards. Horrible day for star WR. But his excuse is his QB sucks.
TE – Vernon Davis – (the empty space preceding this represents his presence and stat line of last week).
K – Jason Hanson – 1 extra point. Thank you though! Because that’s all you got this week, I was able to beat the guy who had you!
DEF – New Orleans – EVERYBODY puts up yards against them. Over 500 yards and Freeman went bizzerk on em.
Free Agent Pick Up of the Week
Chris Cooley. Ehh, not big on it, but you could do worse at tight end at this point.
