Up From the Pit Fantasy Football: Week 7 Review

October 21, 2014

It was another tight race for most of the week 7 slate of games. But by Monday night it was obvious who would come out on top. Did we clarify the top spot while completely muddying up the race for second? Let’s take a look.

The Open Carriers (131 pts) remained atop the standings. Peyton Manning (28 pts) threw for 4 scores whilst passing blue jean pitchman Brett Favre for total career touchdowns. Le’Veon Bell (27 pts) played second fiddle with 137 yards of offense, 8 receptions and a touchdown, and the rest of the team produced solid games in support. Way behind the leader we find a 4 team scrum separated by a mere 3 points. Start Your Starters (116 pts) got yet another dual threat game from Matt Forte (28 pts) who is trying to become the third rb in history to catch 100 passes. Aaron Rodgers (24 pts) and Dez Bryant (24 pts) completed the SYS trinity.  Unaccompanied Minors  (114 pts) were led by a one man show, Russell Wilson (38 pts), who threw for 313 yards and 2 tds,  and ran for 106 and a touchdown. Team Scheirer (114 pts) on the other hand spread the ball around with 4 players, Antonio Brown (22 pts), Andrew Luck (21 pts), Arian Foster (21 pts) and Andre Ellington (21 pts) all cracking the 20 pt barrier. Unfortunately the “Killer A’s” got zero support from the rest of the team. Our Sports Team was hot on their heels as they try and overcome a slow start to get back into the playoff picture. Demaryius Thomas (37 pts) once again did most of the damage with 171 yards on 8 receptions and two of Manning’s record setting TD’s.

Neer Neer Neer (103 pts) tried their best to crash the first division party behind flex receiver Super Golden Tate (31 pts), but following the trend we see above was unable to scare up any support for the superstar effort. The Seoul Crushers  continued their free fall, with Marquez Colston (17 pts) leading their scoring efforts with 6 catches for 111 yards but no trips to the endzone. The Geatland Grendels ( 81 pts) and their Bengals heavy lineup suffered the most from Cincinnati’s bizarre shutout in Indianapolis. Randall Cobb (24 pts) and Chris Ivory (21 pts) did their best, but literally no other Grendel scored in double digits.

So at the halfway point of the season we have the Open Carriers taking a commanding 10 point lead over the pack. Start Your Starters, Team Scheirer  and Unaccompanied Minors are battling for the other playoff spot, and the other four teams struggling to stay relevant. In fact UM has a bigger lead over the 5th place Crushers  than OC  has on the second spot. There is still plenty of football to play, but the math is strting to get really hairy for the bottom four teams.
