My fantasy team is in trouble boys and girls. After two weeks, my Taco al Carbon find themselves in last place. On week 1 I was crushed by Laneit’s sister, Lacie. While last week my team was devastated as Knowshon Moreno, DeSean Jackson, the towel manager, and the caterer all went down with injuries. To make matters worse, I lost to my arch-nemesis… Furiated.
I suppose the good news (if there are any) is that John’s Crusty Jugglers (2-0) are in first place. Why is this good news? Glad you asked. First, I’m playing against John this weekend, which means I have a chance to get out of the basement by dethroning the first place team. Two, John is infamous for his fast starts, his near flawless regular seasons, am for losing early in the playoffs. He’s the Peyton Manning of our league. Anywho, the point is there’s always a chance for the rest of us.
I should note however, that John took down defending champion Jim 208.98 to 162.52. It may sound like a blowout, but it was a seesaw battle. John and the Crusty Jugglers went into Sunday with a 22.00 to 7.00 lead. That advantage disappeared by the end of the early Sunday games and they trailed by 90.22.
After the late Sunday games, the lead changed hands again, and they went ahead 155.84 to 128.12. By the end of Sunday night, the lead was lost yet again and Jim gained a 2.68-point edge. After all the lead changes, Crusty Jugglers closed it out with a comeback on Monday night.
Meanwhile, in the battle between siblings…
Laneit’s TNU team put up the highest point total in the league this week to take down Lacie 244.78 to 185.50. Lacie’s team failed to live up to expectations and scored only 93.5% of a projected 198.39, But, she lost Robert Griffin III early on, so the loss shouldn’t be a surprise.
Laneit put up 17.9% more points than projected (207.59) and with a 1-1 record, he struts into fourth place. Lacie is also 1-1, and she remains in third place.
As you can see, we don’t have as many teams this year. A couple of players decided not to play this year, and it was tough getting six of us to play. This has me thinking that next season I might take out league public. We shall see.
