Buffalo Wild Wings Update: Week Seven

I have been absolutely buried lately, so I have not had time to cover this league. Things have not gone well. In Week Five, I got destroyed by injuries, as I lost my bye week fill-in Bruce Gradkowski early in his game, and I also lost my stud TE in Jermichael Finley and WR Mark Clayton, who I started based on his great matchup.  So I lost in Week Five, and I’m probably done in this league after also losing a close one in Week Six, despite having a very good week. I picked up Nick Folk, Minnesota’s defense, and TE Brandon Pettigrew, and they all came though, but it wasn’t enough.

So now I’m down Finley, Clayton, Portis (still kicking myself for not getting Torain the weekend he was activated off the practice squad, no time), and now also Malcom Floyd (who’s injury last week likely cost me a win).

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
