So much has let to led to this weekend. Three games to determine who gets that sweet sweet title to put in their sig tag as the Kreigers/Archers/Swansons champions. So let's break down the matchups.
Swansons Championship Matchup:
Brew Town Boozer's I Just Called To Say F*ck You v. Mr. Leam's Put Something Offensive Here- Ok, first off, every person in the Swanson's should be hanging their heads in shame. The Great British (not sure if it's Scotland or Wales, my bad) Mr. Leam who has NEVER PLAYED FANTASY AMERICAN FOOTBALL IN HIS LIFE (or so he led on) IS IN OUR CHAMPIONSHIP. Boozer's miracle run despite backing into the playoffs, he was last seen running through my boys last week (fuck you very much Rapelisberger and Antonio Brown). Advantages for Leam include Mendenhall going up against STL and Roddy White ripping apart the NO secondary, but Boozer has Calvin Johnson neutralizing Matthew Stafford's points against the suspect SD secondary as well as Julio Jones against that same NO secondary. The teams split their regular season matchups, including just 3 weeks ago where Leam took his playoff positioning. I do believe this will be the only matchup in a fantasy championship of either Dalton or Alex Smith going up against Matt Stafford or Eli. Crazy.
Kreigers Championship Matchup:
Tepo6868's Using Your Head with James Harrison v. Ice Cream MAn's Ice Cold Bruschis- I'll be honest, I think the Bruschi's have an amazing squad with Brees leading the way, Lynch and MJD at the RB positions, and Welker and Miles Austin at the receiver. However, Tepo's squad is quite the tremendous slouch, with Cam, a very good RB corps in Mendenhall and Mathews, and Megatron, Julio Jones, and Antonio Brown at the receiver spots. TE would be highly in favor of Tepo if Finley didn't drop it as if it were a Beastie Boys beat. And each has an easy defensive matchup. Basically, whoever has the fewest guys shit the bed will win this one. Tepo took the first matchup by 7.
Archers Championship Matchup:
Hyatt's Cromartie's Foster Kid Emporium v. TexWestern's Rock Me Abberderis- So I made one of these. Go me. Tough matchup though. Stafford has been lights out lately, but I see Matt Ryan in NO and that means SHOOTOUT. I have a pretty good advantage at RB with Matthews and Foster, though Gore (against a tough SEA defense) and Shonn Greene aren't going to kill Tex. The receivers are pretty much a push in my view, as Julio Jones and Lance Moore are equal (and both in that upcoming shootout), as are Roddy and Fitty, though slight edge to Steve Smith over Dez Bryant. TEs are a push too with Davis and Pettigrew. He's got me on D as the Titans take on Blaine Gabbert, but the Jets are a high scoring D who always put up at the end of the year. This one will go the distance starting with Arian going tomorrow, and ending with a Lance Moore/Roddy White v. Matt Ryan/Julio Jones slugfest on Monday Night. I can't wait.
Feel free to check out the matchups and lament on which of your players on your losing teams you want to receive an infectious disease. Good luck to all.
