A big sigh of relief as our low scoring fantasy football team outscored our even lower scoring opponent. Up next is a date with the highest scoring team in the league.
Fantasy Football Week 3 Summary (for last week’s result, click here)
StakeHaul vs. Team #7
Week 3 Points: 103.6
Head-to-Head League Result: W 103.6-81.7
League Standings: 3rd
Power Rankings: 3rd
Total Season Haul From Side Bets: +$45
FAAB Dollars Remaining: $234
No FAAB Dollars Spent This Week
We thought about putting in a bid for Ryan Fitzpatrick to ride his hot start, but ultimately we decided against it. We couldn’t justify placing a bid on any QB when we have Tom Brady.
Here were the final winning bids from last week. All teams start with $250 at the beginning of the year.
- Giovani Bernard, CIN RB – $48
- DeSean Jackson, TB WR – $28
- Browns Defense – $25
- Ryan Fitzpatrick – $10
- Calvin Ridley – $5
Other Roster Moves
We added Antonio Callaway (CLE WR) and O.J. Howard (TB TE) to our roster and dropped Philip Rivers (LAC QB) without spending any FAAB dollars.
Historically, rookie WR’s have inconsistent fantasy point outputs week-to-week, so it will be interesting to see if Callaway is one to break the mold in the same way the Cleveland Browns broke the mold and finally won a game.
Speaking of Cleveland, did you know the last time their record was above .500 was during the 2014 season? Fun fact, their record was 7-4 before they lost the final five games of the season.
All jokes aside, congratulations to the Browns, and we look forward to watching them grow into a respectable team.
Thoughts From This Week
The fantasy gods taketh Week 2, and the fantasy gods giveth Week 3. That seems to be the running theme this season, as our fantasy output has been inconsistent at best.
We easily could be 0-3 if our fortune and misfortune were balanced. However, our team faced the worst team going into this week, and his team continues to be butt.
When your QB is Tom Brady and is playing against a Lions defense that gave up 5,000,000 points to the Jets Week 1 with a rookie QB, you’d expect him to obtain at least double digit fantasy points.
Oh well, the only sure thing in fantasy is expect the unexpected. Did you know the Detroit defense forced Tom Brady into his worst regular season game by QB rating in the past five years in which he played the whole game?
On the bright side, Kenny Golladay, whom we drafted at the tail end of the draft, continues to produce. Also, Alex Collins finally produced above his fantasy point projections.
Finally, for the love of God Arizona, please fire Mike McCoy and start Josh Rosen for the rest of the year. We can’t take these ugly yardage outputs from David Johnson any longer.
Hear It From Our Week 3 Opponent!
I’m glad Tom Brady sucked it up yesterday and can’t wait for Antonio Brown to earn 50+ points to win this week for me!
We Won Our First League Side Game
Only two other league mates chose to participate in this, which was disappointing. However, we won $20 this past week by picking the highest scoring lineup from the Week 3 Thursday night, Sunday night, and Monday night games.
Week 4 Preview
Team #1 vs. StakeHaul
We’re facing the top team in our power rankings this upcoming week. However, we feel confident. In fact, we agreed to a $10 side bet on the winner of this matchup with our opponent.
Our opponent is also feeling confident. In fact, he states:
“I can’t wait to watch your cuck of a QB Tom Brady get put into another body bag as his farewell/misery tour continues. The Pat Mahomes train is coming to town, choo choo motherfucker.”
“Mahomes will beg Von Miller for extra Old Spice after the Denver defense makes him shit himself all night.”
Will we make any attempts at waiver pickups? If so, how much will it take to bid to secure their services? Finally, will we win our side bet?
Tune in next week to find out!
Oh yeah, LOL Vikings.
