Week 3: September 26th – Let’s do one of those 1980′s movie montages to catch up. Play this while you read the following:
After manipulating players around, I’ll be honest, I forgot to try and find SOME one to replace Fred Jackson. So, I stuck him in at my FLEX position and rolled the dice. Hot damn! 20 points later, I had squeaked out the victory 87 – 85. Phew! The following week, I decided to stick with it one more time. The waiver wire was skimpy, the matchup was weak. It worked once, let’s try again.
We met up in the dojo, Miyagi handed me a soapy sponge, we playfully splashed soapy water at each other…oh wait… I mean, I annihilated my matchup. It wasn’t even close. The combo of Owen Daniels, Marion Barber, and Fred Jackson beat my opponent. So, OK Fred Jackson’s pretty good.
Well, during a nice run last week, Marion Barber comes up gimpy and that brings me to now.
Week 3: September 27th – Marion Barber is out this week. I gotta fill this spot. As it turns out, someone has gotten fed up with waiting out Reggie Bush. While I gave up waiting on Bush last season, he looks like a pretty serviceable option against the Bills with Mike Bell out and Pierre Thomas still kind of up in the air. He’ll be alright for a one week fill in. I’ll finally drop Vernon Davis’ ass and get my substitute RB.
Plus, while I haven’t been forced to use them yet, I hate this damn bike, I hate it, I hate this friggin’ bike… Shit. Take 5, Esposito! You’re messin’ up my flow. While I haven’t been forced to use them yet, I’m sick of watching Donnie Avery and Eddie Royal putting up slap fight numbers every week. Hmmm…not many options. Well, if nothing else, I’m getting rid of Donnie Avery in favor of the new Eddie Royal, Johnny Knox. I won’t be playing him unless Randy Moss ends up wearing sweats today, but he’ll be nice to have come bye week time.
Week 3: September 28th – Well, shit. Sometimes I wonder if the players realize that I actually control their fates. By dropping Vernon Davis, I allowed him to have a career game against the Vikings. You’re welcome, Vernon. But, even I can’t help Donnie Avery against being an overrated participant in Suckville. Through no real help from Reggie Bush, I still took Week 3 by 20 to move into sole possession of 1st place.
Tune in next time to find out what happens when you’ve got Marshawn Lynch AND Fred Jackson and Michael Turner is heading off on a Week 4 Bye. Plus, will Eddie Royal and his 42 yards survive the cut? Find out next time.
