(late but still in before Sunday’s games begin!)
Week 6 was wee bit unremarkable in the storyline department…so expecting a lengthy bit of typed words about it shouldn’t be done….
There were a few major performances (What up, Discount Double-Check!) but for the most part, 4 out of the 5 matchups were in the bag and decided without too much consternation.
However just because this bad boy will be short doesn’t mean it’ll lack a certain quality to it…
Let’s talk about the Commish’s matchup with the Dawg Pound
Not these guys…
For starters, I’m not going to sit here and gloat like I’m a better manager because I got one win. To be honest, I dodged one MAJOR bullet considering I started Greg Little (with the ole player from his favorite team against him shtick)
Got small potatoes from Jamaal Charles, Crabby Patty and Young GZ MISSED 3 FGs in a rainy soup down in MIA-yayo..and my QB1, Matt Ryan was tossing the pigskin around like Meg Ryan….
So me ending up with 134 points was a friggin godsend.
However, sometimes too much thinking can cost you.
I understand the reasons why he started Alex Smith, Brian Hartline and Michael Turner instead of Andy Dalton, Jordy Nelson and Darren McFadden. I could breakdown each player’s pros and cons for you right here but I won’t bore you with the details…But let this week 6 loss for DPW be a cautionary tale of not getting TOO cute….which is entirely possible in this business of fantasy football. Depending on how much weekly prep you do, there maybe some prognosticators out there who think they have the answer @ every position on who to sit or start. But there are certain situations where you have to dance with the one who brought you, regardless of matchup.
Let Wyclef school you on why that is….(Pause, No Yele)…
Injuries, the overcoming of obstacles, and my favorite, GARBAGE TIME….These are all things that can swing any particular players fortune from grim to great in mere seconds.
So while I’m lucky to get my win and move on up the standings, a part of me, a sentimental part…feels bad that he had 80+ points on the pine.
But not for too long….
And please believe me, I am never going to let you forget that Curtis Painter gaffe from last year….
Alright GM’s, week 6 is a wrap and week 7 is upon us. Suicide Kings is clearly trying to leave us all in the dust, no pixie, with massive point totals on a weekly basis but it’s not going to be easy. In 3 of the next 4 weeks, he faces the highest scoring teams and his nemesis who always seems to have his number every year…The 4-2 teams lurk in the background but they all have to keep up with the pace car. The 3-3 teams face off with some 2-4 teams who want them back down in the barrel, crabs in a bucket style….We’ll see if there’s some space created for the teams towards the top or will things get tighter than a tube top on Gabourey Sidibe….Time will tell..
And with that, we reach the end of another blog post, full of wit, mirth and humorous tidbits. Let’s keep the competition fierce, the waiver wire pickups plentiful and the trade offers fair and equal, unless someone out there offers you a beaut that you just can’t pass up!
Until next week, folks!
