HHH (138.72) vs Pack Attack (132.00)
What a game and what a win for HHH as they move to 3-3 on the season! This one came down to the wire as Pack Attack (2-4) was looking to make up ground with both Diggs and Moss playing on Monday night but HHH countered that with AJ Brown. At the half, HHH held a slim two point lead and then AJ Brown decided to show up and had 7 catches for 91 yards in that second half. With Buffalo down 3 points and getting the ball back for what seemed like would be a final drive or overtime Pack Attack needed 6.73 points to take the lead. Diggs at this point had 89 yards receiving so all that would need to happen in that final drive is a 11 + yard completion to Diggs and he would get the +5 bonus for over 100 yards and the catch + the yards and Pack Attack would be in the lead! Nope, never happened and HHH holds on to get their 3 win of the season. No… I am not angry.. as I take out my aggression on my keyboard keys while typing this!
DaUnderdog (139.26) vs 16hrs Ahead of You!! (138.16)
Wow! The Pack Attack vs HHH game was good but this one was a little better and involved a crazy come from behind win for DaUnderdog. DaUnderdog came into the Monday night game down by 34.08 points with only one player remaining but luckily for them it is their best player and through 6 weeks it is the best player in fantasy football. I am talking about Derrick Henry incase you didn’t know! For Henry to get to that many points he would need to have one of his better games of the season and going against a tough Bills D that seemed like it may be too much to ask. Things started slow for him but then he broke through in the second quarter with a 76 yard TD run and suddenly you could see the possibility there for a big game. Henry got TD #2 in the third quarter and as the game was coming to a close with 3:02 left on the clock Henry ran in TD #3 on the day from 13 yards out giving DaUnderdog the lead and that was all that was needed as DaUnderdog comes away with the improbable 1 point win! 16hrs falls to 3-3 on the season and has now lost three straight games!
Bossman (125.06) vs Big Papa (109.80)
Bossman does it again as they get the win thanks to a big game from L. Fournette (25.70) on Thursday evening. I am beginning to think that this is what Bossman is going to be this year. They have a team that has been led to this point by T. Brady and they are capable of a big game here and there but most weeks they will sit in this 120 to 130 range for scoring and that has served them well as they are currently in the #2 spot in the league at 5-1. Big Papa had a shot here and this one played out somewhat as I suspected (hence the reason I picked the upset) however I expected a game in the 30’s for Mahomes and I also expected Big Papa to start the guys that were playing. Big Papa had C. Kirk on the bench (14.75) which had he started him over Parker (DNP) the final score would have been 125.06 to 124.55. I guess they lose either way so maybe this way it isn’t so heartbreaking! Big Papa continues their hold on last place and they have now lost 5 games in a row!
BIGBOY! (150.75) vs Starrfavrerodg (101.15)
Just another day at the office for BIGBOY! as they move to 6-0 on the season with yet another dominating performance. Outside of their 11 point week 1 win no team the next closest came was a 20 point win over teamAlaska. I am not sure what else their is to say about this team at this point other then they keep doing it from all different directions. Some weeks it is Herbert and Williams and other weeks like this week it is TJ Watt (31.95) and Darrell Henderson (20.65) and once again to remind all of you that CMC has played two games for this team! Starrfavrerodg saw their 3 game winning streak come to a screeching halt as they picked a bad time to have their worst week of the season. Clearly 5 other teams ahead of you haven’t had any luck against BIGBOY! this season so better days ahead for Starrfavrerodg.
pack slayer (146.85) vs U Don’t Know (97.92)
pack slayer had something to prove this week and that was to let everyone know that the 93 point effort from a week ago was merely one bad week and that this team is still a team to be reckoned with! They did just that this week as they beat up on the defending champion U Don’t Know squad by handing them their 5th loss of the season and beating them by 48 points! When Stafford and Kupp are clicking (which they have been most of the season) this team is going to be tough to beat however given the reliance on these two players and throw in T. Hill I am somewhat worried about the consistency with the scoring. Let’s see if they can find some other pieces or have some guys step up and be those complimentary type of players this team needs right now! U Don’t Know is struggling and they are realizing that winning the Super Bowl is hard but repeating is even harder! They are now sitting at 1-5 on the season and they are going to need to start finding some ways to get wins and soon!
teamAlaska (135.82) vs PackerFANatic7 (86.51)
This was a big win for teamAlaska as they move to 4-2 on the season. I talked about it before but much like Bossman they are winning this season by being very consistent in their scoring. This was their highest scoring week of the season at 135 points and outside of a week 3 101 point game their lowest scoring week has been 117.25. This level of consistency means that they have a well rounded team that in order to beat them you are going to have to play a good game! The only thing I would like to see from this team is that blow up type game where they score in the 170’s. Consistency is great and will get you a lot of wins and likely a playoff berth but come playoff time you may need that big game to get to the next round. I am waiting to see that from this team! PackerFANatic7 falls to 3-3 on the season and I this team can’t seem to make up its mind with whether they want to be a good team or a bad team. The last two weeks prior to this one they looked like a really good team averaging a ridiculous 181.78 PPG. Then you have a week like this where they score 86.51 points and I am left scratching my head as to what just happened!? Clearly the potential is there now like pack slayer they need to get together some level of consistency or this is likely a team that will be exactly what you have seen through three weeks. A .500 team that looks really good some weeks and really bad the others!
Sportsfreak (128.87) vs Rapids Plungers (98.42)
This was an impressive win by Sportsfreak as they move to 2-4 on the season. Not only did they beat a quality team but they also did so after having one of the most frustrating losses a person could have the week before. They have put together back to back solid weeks and they are hoping that this win here will start them on a path to a winning streak! Rapids Plungers despite their record had been playing fairly well however that ended this week as they failed to score 100 points for the first time all season. With both of these teams now sitting at 2-4, it will be interesting to see where each of them go from here. In the next 6 games will they be 4-8 or will one of them get hot and be pushing for a playoff spot or better yet in playoff positioning?
That’s it for this week everyone. Have a great week!
