ESPN league, I won 71-64 on a non-PPR format. The line is hilarious.
Basically, I was down 64-53 after the 1pm games, my opponent had a nice day from the Schaub-Daniels combo, Kyle Rudolph was shut out for me, and Vincent Jackson was single handedly keeping me in it. I had Brady, Wallace, and the Steelers D left, he had MJD only. MJD went down and I managed to win it.
The funny thing about this was, due to injuries and byes, we had 2 RBs each starting: He had MJD and LaGarrette Blount (left Pierre Thomas on the bench, thankfully), and I had DeAngelo Williams (2 carries), and Phillip Tanner. 3 points from Tanner were the only RB points scored in our matchup.
Picked up Janikowski this week with Prater on the bye. With his 14 points I actually have a chance at winning. Im 22 points up but my opposition has Leshoure and Marshall playing tonight.
To add to this, I ended up winning by 1.8 points, luckily Leshoure had a fumble which is -2 points. Even with Vernon Davis and Trent Richardson getting me less than 2 points combined, I squeaked it out and now I am #1 at 5-2.
Am 6-2 and drafted Cam Newton and MJD in the 2nd and 3rd rounds respectively. Got Peyton Manning and Vjax in the 8th and 9th rounds respectively. Anyone else in a great position and feeling like there season is basically over?
Was 4-6 going into this week, one more loss and I'm done for playoffs. Needed an RB as I only had one healthy back (Reggie Bush though, so may as well have been hurt), so I traded Tom Brady and Demarco Murray for Matt Ryan and Ryan Mathews. Murray is a better back but I needed points this week. Mathews got me 7, which isn't great but better than 0. Matt Ryan had actually outperformed Brady this year, until his 2 point performance yesterday, knocking me out of the playoffs (Miller and Wallace didn't help either though).
Made some bad calls and had some bad things happened to me:
-Played ATL DEF (12 points) over NE DEF (27 points).
-Played Newton (18 points) over Freeman (22 points).
-McGahee injured in the 2nd quarter
So I was losing by 2 points going into the PIT/BAL game last night. I had Vernon Davis left, opposition had Mike Wallace, Matt Forte and CHI DEF left to play. So suffice to say I thought I was done. Davis gets me 14 point tonight while Forte, Wallace and CHI DEF get my opposition just over 8 points. So I ended up winning this week by 4 points.
