Fantasy Football Report: Week 13

Brett Favre

The playoffs have officially arrived in most leagues while some of you might have one week left before fantasy postseason glory begins. I personally am involved in both scenarios. With my #2 seed officially locked up (and the high point total for the regular season…thank you), I am in playoff mode.

Being in a 2-QB league has taught me the importance of landing not just a good QB, but a great QB. So, I am sending thank you’s to Aaron Rodgers for one league, and Tom Brady/Philip Rivers in the other league. God bless the 2-QB league!

Injury Bug

  • Not that you really care, but poor little Brett Favre (no, not his penis…hey, the well’s not dry after all!) is once again nursing his shoulder after getting sacked on his first pass of the day. Knowing him, he will “tough it out” and make it to the stadium this Sunday.
  • Remember when Heath Miller was a decent starting TE? Yeah well, those days are gone. However, if your league was deep enough where you were starting him every week, you should know a concussion may keep him from playing in week 14.
  • Buffalo suffered injuries to their offensive line against Minnesota as they lost two centers. This may end up hurting the running game, so Fred Jackson owners be cautious this week.

Who’s Making Noise

  • I guess Marshawn Lynch isn’t useless after all. The Buffalo reject scored 3 TD and rushed for 83 yds against the Panthers.
  • Who thought Sidney Rice could only be successful with Brett Favre? He looked great catching passes from Tavaris Jackson as he scored twice and had 105 receiving yds.
  • Rookie Chris Ivory had his 2nd 100-yd game of the season with 117 yds on 15 carries and 2 TD. He is averaging 5.2 ypc as the Saints starting RB.
  • The Carolina running game is quite the carousel. This week featured Jonathan Stewart as the star. He carried 21 times for 92 yds and a score.

Big Busts

  • For the first time since Week 7, Peyton Hillis failed to have 100 total yds and/or a TD as he only had 79 yds with no scores.
  • Mark “Filthy” Sanchez looked terrible on national television with 164 yds and 3 INT.
  • The Broncos are in deep trouble and Kyle Orton was no help with his lowest passing total of the season (117 yds) and he failed to throw a TD for the first time since Week 11 of last season.

Other Notes

  • Former #1 overall pick Alex Smith is now once again the starting QB for the 49ers thus ending Troy Smith’s reign of terror. Troy ends his five-game stint with a 3-2 record, 4 TD, 3 INT, and 204 pass yds per game.
  • Ben Roethlisberger added to his injury woes as he suffered a broken nose on Sunday. He will undergo surgery and will play in Week 14. However, worry about his ankle affecting his performance.
  • The way things are going with Brett Favre, don’t sleep on Tavaris Jackson. At this rate, Favre might just play a few series and bench himself in order to avoid further injury and preserve his precious record.
