Fantasy Football Notes


Okay, now that we got that out of the way, there were tons of storylines from imaginary football today. Let’s get right to the bullets:

  • Michael Vick, starting for two of my four teams, did exactly what he was supposed to do, and picked apart the Lions with ruthless precision. He threw for 284 yards and two TDs, one to DeSean Jackson and another to Jeremy Maclin. LeSean McCoy was even more beastly, running for three scores. With Vick, the Eagles have four guys who are capable of breaking a huge play at any second. With Kevin Kolb, we have yet to see any positive signs of life from the Eagles’ offense. This hasn’t stopped Andy Reid from being a complete moron and declaring Kolb the starter next week already.
  • Jahvid Best made Mike Luu give his fantasy opponent the raspberry today, exploding for three touchdowns (two rushing, one receiving), and looking every bit as explosive as anyone in football. He made the Eagles just look stooooopid on some of his runs, but I will never think of him for anything other than this:
  • Michael Turner and Ryan Grant both went down early in their games today. Normally I would separate these two guys into different bullets, but considering they’re BOTH on the same freakin’ fantasy team of mine, I feel they deserve to be bunched together. If just one of them had done anything, this week would be mine. BLEEP
  • Vince Young, who just happens to occupy the same fantasy team, was benched three quarters into the Titans’ loss to the Steelers today. Kerry Collins, he of the ridiculously high age and ridiculously terrible teeth, came in and almost led the Titans all the way back to victory. No word yet on who will get the start next week, but if it’s Collins, then I know a certain Joe Flacco supporter who will be without a backup QB next week. Which would just be hilarious.
  • Some big names rebounded from really crappy first week performances: Andre Johnson rebounded in a big way, Frank Gore already has a TD and could end up with more, Adrian “My nickname is AD, not AP you assholes!” Peterson had a decent game against the Vikes in week 1, but week 2 is more like the running back we all know – one of the two best in the league.
  • Arian Foster fell back down to Earth, as did Hakeem Nicks (though he did have a touchdown catch), Legedu Naannee (what happened Legedu, can’t perform when I’m starting you?! Huh?! jerk), Tom Brady, somewhat (bwahahahahahaha) and everyone on my team in my league with my Mulligan’s coworkers completely pooped the bed – Jamaal Charles, Ryan Mathews, Seattle Mike Williams and the afore-mentioned Legedu just pooped it up. 0-2 to start the year. See above Bleep link.

That’s all I got for now. Pray Pierre Thomas finds the end zone in the 4th quarter for me.
