Greetings folks, hope your weekend (and fantasy team) wasn’t completely ruined by the loss of Ronnie Brown… before we get to the list here’s some quick thoughts from Week 7:
1. Thank you Eagles for listening to me by not kicking to Devin Hester. And sorry that it still didn’t help you.
2. If you can’t put up at least 40 points against the Patriots, just look forward to next week… and hope it’s a bye week…
3. Brad Childress doesn’t have a clue. “Preserving” the BACKUP RB (don’t even get me started on that one) Adrian Peterson by making him return kicks. . . . Arguably one of the most dangerous parts of the game.
4. Back to the Dolphins… I guess the bright spot for the team is they
have a great home in sunny Miami??? have a great kick returner in Ted Ginn Jr.? ummm have… Cleo Lemon? Ok jokes aside, this team sucks a lot. Are they gonna go winless? I think there’s a HIGH possibility with their star RB out for the season.
Here are the top performers for Week 7:
Keep in mind this is just a guideline based on the Sports of Boston fantasy league which uses a custom point system. I don’t want any angry comments about me ruining your fantasy team, you probably should have drafted better anyway. Enjoy and good luck with your waiver wire and trade dealing!
|1||Tom Brady, NE, QB||On pace to shatter Peyton’s TD Record with 61 TDs. Don’t bother trying to make an offer for the guy.|
|3||Wes Welker, NE, WR||The shifty possession guy with sticky fingers seems to be well worth the second rounder the Pats gave up.|
|5||Randy Moss, NE, WR||The other guy to not bother trying to trade for.|
|7||Earnest Graham, TB, RB||Bringing much stability to the running and passing game. Look for him to hold off newly acquired Michael Bennett.|
|8||Jay Culter, Den, QB||The strongest cannon in the NFL is carrying his offense while the running game struggles.|
|9||Chad Pennington, NYJ, QB||The weakest squirt gun in the NFL had a good performance but it’s like JoJo: too little, too late.|
|11||Larry Johnson, KC, RB||Looks to be back in top shape, helping his team sneak into first in the AFC West.|
|13||Brandon Jacobs, NYG, RB||Not sold on any part of the Giants running game. Successful but Jacobs and Derrick Ward seem to be the dreaded injury-prone types.|
|15||Jeff Garcia, TB, QB||270 passes without an interception dating back to his stint with the Eagles last season. Third in passer rating behind Brady and Manning, good company.|
|17||Peyton Manning, Ind, QB||Solid, but now everything he does is compared to Brady. He can’t help but look mediocre and I think he knows it.|
|19||Roddy White, Atl, WR||Leftwich goes down, Harrington is Harrington. Why bother putting yourself through this?|
|21||Marion Barber III, Dal, RB||Remaining the backup == Chip on his shoulder. And that’s why the Cowboys do it.|
|23||Donovan McNabb, Phi, QB||A decent performance, no mistakes but needs to do much more to keep this team afloat. Can you picture him in a Bears uniform? Me neither.|
|25||Clinton Portis, Was, RB||Blaming the coaches for his struggles? Personally, I’m still waiting for his season ending injury
