Lacie and her casus04 team played out of their minds this week, registering the second-highest point total of the week to get past John’s previously undefeated Crusty Jugglers 232.40 to 174.96.
Aaron Rodgers led Crusty Jugglers with 51.88 points while Antonio Brown racked up an impressive 38.28 points. The buck stops with Crusty Jugglers following this setback, as they had two starters score zero points (Julius Thomas and Montee Ball).
John was not pleased during his post game rant to Erin Andrews, although I’m not sure why he brought up Watergate and the Andrew Sisters.
Thanks to the win Lacie (3-1) climbs into second place and John (3-1, 838.46 points) stays in first place by the hair on his chinny-chin-chin.
Despite lackluster performances from Tom Brady, DeSean Jackson, Tom Brady, Stevan Ridley, and oh yeah, Tom Brady, the fantasy football gods took pity on me this week. Things didn’t look good for me at times, but somehow my Tacos Al Carbon (1-3) stole one from Jim’s Dark12h8 (1-3) 199.94 to 190.06.
I was the first to put points on the board and by Sunday had a slome 0.90 to 0 lead. That advantage quickly disappeared, and by the end of the early Sunday games and I trailed by 60.34. But Tacos Al Carbon never gave up, and thanks to Philip Rivers (who scored a league-high for the most points this season with 79.58 points.) I took the lead back during the late Sunday games and held on for the victory.
It was a lucky win for sure, but a win ia a win. Let’s face it: A couple of days ago my season looked like the Hindenburg coming in for a landing. I was in last place with zero hope. But now I’m out of the basement, and I have a little bit of confidence going into my match against Laneit.
Speaking of Laneit…
His TNU team (2-2) beat Team Furiated (2-2) 234.46 to 188.62, putting up the highest point total in the league this week. A good beginning makes a good ending, and Laneit took that to heart when his team went into Sunday in front 23.30 to 5.20.
That lead faded away like paint in the rain by the end of the early Sunday games and they trailed 121.92 to 115.68. However, TNU delivered the last blow right to Furiated’s jugular and came out of the Sunday night game ahead by 45.84.
In his post game press conference, Laneit thanked the 39.50 points scored by DeMarco Murray, which was the highest score of any RB in the league this week. This was a great (and much-needed) win by Laneit, but keep in mind Furiated was celebrating his big birthday milestone last week.
Now, I don’t want to embarrass him by mentioning his age. But I will say he is the only one in our group who was alive during the Ford administration.
