Mr. Sports is back for its 17th fantasy football season!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
Team of the Week (Week 12):
Renegade Baumers, owned by Rene Baum in ML 25, scored 202 points to take home the TOTW!
The offense was led by:
C. Kaepernick, 29pts, this has been a very disappointing year for Kap and fantasy owners... he was expected to be a top 10 QB and he is barely in the top 20... he is still valuable but not what we all expected.
K. Moreno, 29pts, basically left for dead in the fantasy scrap-heap, he has come on huge this season as the #5 rated fantasy RB... he has always had the talent but he has been hurt so much that his value was extemely low... kudos to you all that took a shot on him, big time payoff!
J. Charles, 27pts, he is the #1 fantasy RB... he hasn't been as dominate over the last 4 weeks (#10 RB) but he does produce good numbers every week... certainly wothy of his high draft pick status
The defense was led by:
V. Miller, 28pts, he's back!, after a slow start from his return Von came up huge this past week with 2 sacks and a TD... if your team is in the playoffs and you have Von, he should be a huge asset... taking PED's does pay.
R. Quinn, 21pts, he has taken over the #1 DL spot from Watt this week at 10.45ppg... this week he had the coveted trifecta: sack, scoop and score... leading a now vaunted Rams D, he is a force to be reckoned.
C. Jordan, 17pts, the #7 rated DL in a revamped Saints defense... he is wreaking havoc on opponents... taken well after bigger names like D.Ware, G.Hardy and J.Allen he is paying off huge for your fantasy team.
Congrats again, Rene... great week!
Views of the season through 12 weeks:
Dallas has control of the division as they hold the tie-breaker right now over Philly... we all know what is going to happen... the division will come down to Philly at Dallas in Week 17 and Romo will
throw a key INT that will send Dallas packing... The Giants are done, no magical run this year... and in Washington, if anyone other than the coaches son was the O-coordinator they would be fired... terrible game planning and play calling.
A tie in an NFL game?... that rule has to be changed... have a punt, pass and kick competition but do something...
I believe Detroit has the best overall team in the division but they just do not want to win it.. when Megatron is giving away balls at the end of the game to seal the deal for the opposing team, something isn't right... maybe it's the Schwartz effect but the karma isn't good in D-Town...
GB still fighting... Matt Flynn sucks in every other uni but when he puts on the cheese and green, he channels his inner Favre and all is well... any questions as to how good A.Rod is?...
The Bears D is embarrassing... that's all...
Carolina making a good run but I don't think they ahve the firepower to bring down the Saints for the division title...
Atlanta is a dumpster fire, what a tank job there... Ryan signs a huge deal and this is what you get Falcon fans: Matty Melting Ice... "well he doesn't have his weapons around him"... neither does Brady or Luck and they still get the job done...
TB will play spoiler the rest of the year but this Glennon kid looks pretty good... I'm liking what I see...
Seattle with a few close calls this year but for the most part they have been dominate... if they get homefield for the playoffs, you can book their ticket to the Super Bowl...
The showdown with SEA vs SF isn't nearly as big unless SEA loses to the Saints this week... then if SF can beat SEA, then homefield may go through New Orleans... the ARI and STL games are looking tougher than first thought...
NFC Wild Card:
With 7 legit teams still in the hunt (PHI, CHI, GB, CAR, SF, ARI, STL) this is going to be a wild last five weeks of the season... I am really liking how STL and ARI are playing... unfortunately, they play in the same division as SEA and SF... if one of them makes the playoffs, it will certainly be earned...
CHI won't go anywhere unless the D shows up... PHI has a shot with Foles playing well but see comments for CHI... CAR in a great position...
This division is over... nice work Pats... thanks to the rest of the division for being dogs... now lets see what you can do in the playoffs...
Cincy 2 games up but it feels like they are hanging on for their life... PIT and BAL playing better... Thanksgiving night will be an eliminator game: PIT vs BAL... put a fork in CLE... what QB are they going to take in the draft?... my guess is Johnny Football and that will be a mistake...
Indy has the propensity to throw up a pathetic performance every so often like they did at ARI this past weekend... lucky they play in a putrid division, almost as bad as the AFC East...
the Texans, see comments about the Falcons... complete joke!
A surpisingly good division, my pick for best division in football... we all knew Denver was going to be very good but to have KC be a top team and SD play very well is a surprise... even Oakland is playing some decent football (well, maybe not but I had to make my argument)...
Huge game this weekend beteen DEN and KC... DEN snatching defeat fro the jaws of victory and KC blowing a lead at home... it will be interesting to see how each team comes out emotionally... I think KC gets the win at home this week with will create more intrigue...
AFC Wild Card:
There are 10 teams in the mix for the playoffs right now... assuming Den or KC gets the 1st WC, that elaves 9 teams for 1 spot... I'm not buying NYJ, MIA, BUF, TEN, CLE as viable contenters... that leaves PIT, BAL, SD as the real contenders... I see these three teams going 3-2 for the last 5 games... that would given them all the same record... with that being said, if I had to put down money on one team, I'd go with PIT... I believe they can squeak out the extra win to go 4-1 and win the second WC
There you go... my take through 12 weeks... like it, hate it, reaction!
