ne of the biggest criticisms of fantasy sports players is that they can't separate their fantasy teams from the actual sport being played. I have called Bullshit on this for years. During the 3 hours of the Brewer game, I am all about my team. I couldn't care less if I have the opposing team's closer. Same with the Packers. I am a diehard wearing my 6 year old Packers shirt while screaming at the tv and distributing Touchdown Puperonis to my dogs when they score when in the lead. It is not even a question where my allegiances lie.
And that's the idea of fantasy sports. Adding another level to the game so you get a better idea of who's good and who isn't in the league. It's about tweeting at Tcyoung or Meiz and letting them know that next time their husbands should draft for them. It's about the competition OUTSIDE of game itself. So when Mitch Albom or some other plagiarizing columnist who has no idea what he's talking about says these nerds need to go to a damn game, I say to them, so do you.
With all that being said, I was just about in tears that I benched Jordy Nelson last night. I knew he was going to go off. I wrote about it last week in the comments
He’s been mediocre to nonexistent this year fantasy wise. Not something you want from an expected solid #2 receiver. But, the moment I’ll bench him in favor of Antonio Brown, Dewayne Bowe, or Malcom Floyd, he’ll explode.
And it the he goes off. I'm not good at fantasy football sometimes.
The Thanks For Nothing, Jerk team of the week:
QB- Matt Schaub 5- also of note, Kevin Kolb was started ahead of RG3. You know who you are. I'll trust you don't make that mistake again.
RB- Rashard Mendenhall 2- Welcome back to disappointing fantasy owners Rashard!
RB- Larod Stephens-Howling 2- HAHA Arizona running backs
WR- Brian Hartline 0- HAHA Dolphins receivers
WR- Darius Hayword-Bey 2
TE- Martellus Bennett 1- Still not good at football
Flex- Andre Roberts 2- HAHA Arizona receivers not named Larry Fitzgerald. But seriously, this guy cost a team a game this week. They lost by half a point. Gut wrenching.
D- Vikings -2
The Bench Team that whipped your team of the week:
QB- RG3 39- He's no longer a debatable decision
RB- CJ Spiller 20
RB- Fred Jackson 17- Looks like Spiller/Jackson could delve into a Roddy/Julio territory
WR- Jordy Nelson 42- /hates self
WR- Jeremy Maclin 28
TE- Jason Witten 14
D- Giants 22
Didn't have much time this week. Work was killer. Here's the updated power ranks.
