Breaking down my fantasy team - Week 2

Posted on: September 18, 2009 10:49 pm
Well, I got my arse kicked in Week 1.  I was worried about Wes Welker, since he was limited in practice all week and played on Monday night.  CBS predicted that Anthony Gonzalez would have 5 catches for 70 yards and a TD.  Home opener, check.  Jacksonville sucks, check!  Peyton Manning throwing the ball, check!  Good move, huh?

Anthony Gonzalez got hurt on the first play of the game and Wes Welker caught 12 passes Monday night.  Good job Coach Scott!  Luckily it didn't cost me the game.  That would have been the worst!

The Bears always play the Packers tough, so my Packers duo of Aaron Rodgers and Ryan Grant didn't do too much last week.  Quite honestly, I thought ONE of them would have a big game, but in retrospect, I'm kind of glad that they didn't.  If we're going to lose, let's go down shitting our pants.  No need to have a 4 TD game from your QB or RB and still lose.  Anybody who had Drew Brees last week and didn't win probably slit their wrists. 

So, this week, we get the Packers boys at home against Cincinnati.  All I hear is about how much improved their defense is, blah, blah, blah.  Their defense is so good that they let Brandon Stokley get behind them for a tipped ball, 76 yard touchdown last week.  Now, that was probably a mistake, but these are still the Bungles to me.  THEY SUCK!  Rodgers should have a 2 or 3 TD day and throw for at LEAST 250 yards.  If he can't do that then Michael Jordan didn't get fat.  Ryan Grant, you should have 90-100 yards just from being out there and carrying the ball 20-25 times.  If I'm right, Correll Buckhalter had 77 yards against them in Week 1.  Correll Buckhalter?  I think he's like 40. 

All of my friends have been giving me crap about Joseph Addai.  They all say that he sucks.  You know what?  Maybe he does!  The good news is that Peyton Manning is his quarterback and that alone means that he will NEVER run against 8 men in the box.  Addai doesn't suck, it's their offensive line.  It has gotten worse over the last 2-3 years.  I still think that when it's all said and done, he will have 1,000 yards rushing, 10 rushing TD's, 40 receptions, 350 receiving yards, and 3 receiving TD's.  Playing with Peyton Manning is good enough to get you SOME money, isn't it?

Marques Colston, you are the least of my concerns.  Just stay on the field my friend.  A 10 catch, 125 yard game is in your future.  It's what you do. 

Wes Welker, keep catching 15 passes for 39 yards.  I'll take it!  That's why I drafted you, PPR baby!!!

Jason Witten, I love you.  I didn't know whether to take Tony Gonzalez over you or not, but I like the Cowboys better and I figured that you would be one of the keys to the passing game.  90 for 900 and 8 when the year is over.  Make me proud.

Jason Elam has a hamstring problem, missed 2 kicks AND an extra point in Week 1.  That will get you dropped from my team yo!  Tonight I'm going to pick up Nate Kaeding in free agency.  He faces Baltimore, that should mean at least 2 FG attempts this week.

I think I'm going to make it a Packers sunday and ride out with the defense also.  Cincinnati's offensive line couldn't block my dog, kid, secretary and wife.  Green Bay should get to the QB pretty easily this week.  The Chargers are my other option, but I really think that the Ravens are going to win that game.  Funny how I'm so decisive (and probably correct) when I'm NOT in Las Vegas.  Betting on those damn games is intimidating.

Well, like I told my homey Pookie this morning, if I don't make the playoffs, I don't know what to do.  I KNOW that I have one of the three best teams in my division.  Now, we have to get a few breaks, play good ball, and go out and prove it.  Come on Green Bay!!!

Breaking down my fantasy team - Week 2

Lombardi Party,

How is your team doing?  I've won 7 in a row and I'm only in first place by a game.  It seems like every game is a playoff game.  This has been a tough year.  Here's how we're currently configured:

QB: Roethlisberger, Warner
RB: Addai, Mendenhall, Grant, D. Brown, McFadden
WR: Fitzgerald, Colston, Burleson, Manningham
TE: Witten, Olsen
K: Akers
D/SP: Saints, Cowboys
IDP: R. Lewis

So far, so good.  This is a HUGE week, I play the guy who is tied for 2nd in our division at 6-3 and we are 1st and 2nd in points (I'm ahead of him by 2 points).  Wish me luck!!!

Breaking down my fantasy team - Week 2

Who would have thought going into the Cin-G.B. game that the Bengals would do more than just put up a fight.  I wouldn't mind Cinci blocking for me if they can make Benson look good.  Are the Patriot really all about Welker or are the Jets really that good?  Colston is a stud I guess you had a tough week though.  How did you do?
