Up From The Pit Fantasy Football: Week 2 in Review
Week 2 – EARLY STATISTICAL BUNCHING
Hey there fans, the main computer at the Blotzcave is acting all broken so we are delivering this update via the back up Blotzpad, which is a little squirrelly in it’s own right so we’ll be brief. Unaccompanied Minors took the top spot this week with a solid 137 points, followed by Open Carriers at 133, Seoul Crushers at 132 and Team Scherier at 130. That is some close fantasy football! Basically one score separating UM from TS.
The second division begins with Start your starters at 104, the Geatland Grendels at 103, Our Sports Team at 98 and NNN at 85. Also pretty tightly bunched but clearly separated from the front runners at the moment.
The real football week was pretty crazy. Our Bengals continued their dominance in The Jungle by dispatching the Falcons handily. The Chargers pulled the biggest upset of the season by beating a Seahawks team that looked invincible in week one, whilst the Bears pulled off a similar feat with a comeback against the 49’ers.
It was also an ugly week for the NFL as an entity. Coming off the poorly handled Ray Rice domestic violence situation, we now transition into the poorly handled Adrian Peterson situation. Purple Jesus was deactivated last week and has now been placed on an obscure roster shenanigans list while the legal situation surrounding his indictment for child endangerment moves through the courts. Team Scherier weathered the loss of AP this week, the Vikings on the other hand are royally fucked. I hope to be able to write more about that mess by the end of the week over at Grounded Parents.
Player of the week: Jordy Nelson caught 9 passes for 209 yards and a touchdown. He is on pace to catch 140 passes this year!
Move of the week: Mark Ingram came of the bench to grab 19 points for the Grendels this week.
Dave Shula Memorial Dumbass Bad Fantasy coach of the week. That would be me. NNN might have come in last, but Karl still gets a beginners pass in his second season playing. OST hasnt fired on any of it’s cylinders yet and I have no excuses at all.
I’ll paste the weekly running scores at the end of each post.
Preview post coming tomorrow.
