A week ago I made Laneit a trade offer. Not just any trade offer mind you, a whopper of an offer. Perhaps the biggest trade in the history of our league. You see, I was desperate to shake my team up before I went up against John’s Crusty Jugglers . I figured the only way to do that would be to trade one of my big guns. Here’s what this trade would look like:
I would send Tom Brady and/or Phillip Rivers, plus Sammy Watkins to Laneit.
In return, he would give me Tony Romo.
Basically Laneit would get the better of the deal, but as I said, I was desperate. And desperate men will do anything for a fantasy football win. I even tried to sweeten the deal by offering a running back and a wide receiver too. I was hoping the trade would go through by last Wednesday, but Laneit was binge watching “Girl Meets World” and forgot about the offer. By the time he got around to answering my request, I said it was too late and the talks broke down.
Boy am I ever glad they did.
My Tacos Al Carbon amassed the highest score of the season to get the win over John’s Crusty Jugglers 352.10 to 249.86. This win served Crusty Jugglers a cold dish of revenge after they won a Week 3 matchup, 179.28 to 174.18. And two of the players I was on the verge of trading?
Tom Brady had 83.16 points, the second-highest QB score of the week and the third-highest QB score in the league this season. And Sammy Watkins scored 52.70 points the third-highest WR score in the league this week and the eighth-best point total by a WR in the league this season.
For the first time this season, Tacos Al Carbon is at .500 (4-4) and sitting pretty in third place. Crusty Jugglers are also 4-4, but the loss drops them to fourth place.
Meanwhile, at Laneit’s mancave…
Laneit’s TNU team is winless this season versus Jim’s Dark12h8, this time losing by a final score of 230.60 to 218.50. This week, Jay Cutler was the difference, picking up 41.68 points. This is the largest margin for Jim in two head-to-head matchups. They defeated TNU 170.74 to 165.30 in Week 3.
At the QB position, Laneit got outscored 72.40 – 35.20 by Jim. Probably because the guy I wanted (Tony Romo) only scored 22.96 points for my best bud Laneit. BWAHAHAHAHA!
In the most frustrating game of the week, Team Furiated put on a show, registering the second-highest score of the season, bulldozing Lacie’s casus04 307.54 to 204.90. This beatdown was revenge for a Week 3 222.78 to 163.66 loss to casus04. For Lacie Andrew Luck and Randall Cobb scored 59.60 and 44.60 points, respectively.
When assigning blame following this loss, Lacie can look in the mirror. She started a player with zero points (Fred Jackson), and most importantly of all: Lacie left Ben Roethlisberger on the bench, where he led the league in scoring with 102.78 points.
Dammit, that means Furiated got a free win. Curses! With the victory Team Furiated (5-3) remains in second place and Lacie (5-3) stays in first place despite the loss.
