Fantasy Football Report: Week 7

Tony Romo

Want to talk about bad luck? In the SoB football league, I have the most point out of the 12 teams. Good news, right? Not in this case. Nope, thanks to several strings of unfortunate matchups, I am stuck in 10th place.

This really just drives the point home that this can be a game of pure luck and not necessarily skill. Ordinarily, this would drive me nuts, but it is cool because in my other league, I am also the leader in points, but am in 2nd place.

Wow, I am actually pretty awesome this season. Now I feel better.

Injury Bug

  • The Cowboys had enough problems this season without losing their star QB, but hey, one hit on Monday night was all it took to shatter Tony Romo’s collarbone. He won’t need surgery, but he will miss up to eight weeks. Grab Jon Kitna if you can.
  • I am not going to talk too much about Brett Favre, because frankly, my gag reflex is not too strong. Basically, he has a fractured ankle, but he is not sure if he will play. Prediction: He plays, he sucks, he blames his injuries. Go to Hell Favre!
  • Here is an update for a change. Michael Vick and DeSean Jackson will return for the Eagles’ next game during Week 9 (on the bye in Week 8). Coach Andy Reid said that Vick will start over Kevin Kolb.

Who’s Making Noise

  • I hope you all listened to me last week when I told you to pick up Kenny Britt. The Titans’ receiver had more yards on Sunday than he did all season as he torched the Eagles for 225 yds and 3 TD.
  • Ok, we have to seriously start looking at Buffalo’s passing game. Ryan Fitzpatrick turned in another huge game with 374 yds with 4 TD and 2 INT. Receivers Lee Evans(105 yds, 3 TD) and Steve Johnson (158 yds, 1 TD) also struck gold.
  • I bet choosing rookie Jimmy Clausen over Matt Moore is something the Panthers would like to forget. Moore was back in the starter’s role on Sunday and he led Carolina to their first win of the season while throwing for 308 yds and 2 TD.

Big Busts

  • Sure, I’ll continue my hateful rant on Brett Favre. Stroking his ego (and taking a break from stroking his…oh wow, better stop right there), Favre took his heavily damaged body out onto the field and produced 212 yds, 1 TD, and 3 INT. Now, add a fractured ankle to that skill set for this Sunday.
  • You know, Jay Cutler just hasn’t been the same since those 9 sacks and 1 concussion. He tossed another gem with 281 yds, 1 TD, and 4 INT (all to DeAngelo Hall).
  • Miles Austin lands here for the second straight week with 38 yds and no scores. He hasn’t found the endzone since Week 5, and now his stock will really take a nosedive without Tony Romo.

Damn You Thomas Jones!

If you’re like me, you decided to roll the dice on a Kansas City running back in your draft. After Jamaal Charles ended the ’09 season with 658 rush yds and 4 TD in his final four games, we knew we had an ace up our sleeves for 2010.

Veteran back Thomas Jones has thrown a monkey wrench into our plans. I saw him getting no more than 6-8 carries a game and letting the young stud Charles wreak havoc. Instead, Jones and Charles have split carries with Jones actually getting more (Jones with 99 and Charles with 81). Jones has racked up more yards and TD, but Charles maintains the better ypc and more receptions.

We can only hope Todd Haley one week decides to flip a switch and start leaning on his hot, young talent. Until then, us Charles’ owners will continue to curse the name of Thomas Jones.

The Final Word on Week 7: Is Mike Williams Going to be Assassinated?

Because he has been TARGETED so many times! Oh, what a knee slapper! Ok, let’s put on our serious faces for a moment and look at the numbers.

After T.J. Houshmandzadeh was traded prior to the start of the season, we all wondered who would emerge as the top receiver in Seattle. Over the past two weeks, Williams has been targeted an obscene 31 times, resulting in 21 catches for 210 yds and a TD.

No other receiver on Seattle is even close to Williams in terms of receptions and yards, so grab him if he is available because he is the only source of offense on that team.

  1. Hey, you just won by less than two points in that SoB league. Your luck is turning around!

    Also — Don’t remind me about Cutler. Yuck!
