Alvin Kamara is a fantasy football cheat code. Too bad the rest of our team let us down.

We didn’t make any free waiver moves because we wanted to wait one more week to see who to drop for Week 5 since Alshon Jeffery is now back form injury. Therefore, we decided to keep him in the IR spot.
It was encouraging to see he put up 100 yards and a touchdown. He might be a regular in our starting lineup going forward.
Thoughts From This Week
Unfortunate. We’re going to be asking ourselves “what if” a lot over the next couple days.
- What if Alex Collins hadn’t lost a fumble at the goal line and instead scored his second touchdown of the night
- What if Ezekiel Elliott didn’t have his career high in scrimmage yards?
- What if Rob Gronkowski hadn’t gotten hurt (again)? What if, before getting hurt, Gronk could have been like our opponent’s FLEX (Will Fuller V) and scored before getting hurt?
- What if Sony Michel could have waited an extra week before getting a workhorse role in the Patriots offense?
All in all, you would expect this kind of high scoring matchup between two of the best fantasy teams in the league. It came down to last night’s Monday night Chiefs/Broncos game, and ultimately Mahomes doing Mahomes things was the difference.
We really want this matchup back in the playoffs. Until then, we have to see the bright side of things. For example, while we lost our $10 bet to our opponent, we gained $10 right back thanks to Alvin Kamara, our fantasy cheat code, scoring the most fantasy points for one player in Week 4. Also, assuming our score holds up, we will win $45 at the end of the season for having the most team points scored in a loss.
Hear It From Our Week 4 Opponent!
No taunts from me, it was a nail biter dude.
Week 5 Preview
StakeHaul vs. Team #10
There’s always one team you want to beat more than any other team in your fantasy football league. For us, that matchup happens this upcoming weekend. In fact, we’ve already changed our team names to appropriately start the trash talking.
Our opponent is 3-1 and rode the hot wave of Ryan Fitzpatrick for a few weeks before flaming out this past weekend. Therefore, we’re not sure what waiver moves he will make, but we’re confident we can handle his team.
Will we make any attempts at waiver pickups? If so, how much will it take to bid to secure their services? Finally, will we make any side bets for the weekend?
Tune in next week to find out!
Oh yeah, LOL Lions.
