I had a tough go last week in this league, as I scored enough points to win (119), but lost by 10 points. I blame the loss on Buster Davis, who I gave a shot with Leg Naanee out. Of course, I was unable to replace him once he was made inactive because I was too preoccupied during the games last week. So I’m now 4-4 and still kicking myself for not finding a way to help my dire RB situation. Tom Brady’s not helping me, and my Jermichael Finley loss is a killer, but I could have helped myself if I had a little less on my plate. So this team could easily be 6-2 and right in the thick of things. Now I’m just shooting for respectability.
I did get Jacob Tamme two weeks ago, which was great, but I had to cut LeGarrette Blount to get him, which is a killer. I had Blount on my roster as a stash-and-hope guy, but I unwisely took a shot with dropping him for Tamme two weeks ago in the hopes that Blount wouldn’t do much in Week Seven and I could get back in Week Eight, but I could not.
As for the moves I’ve made this week, nothing earth-shattering. I grabbed the Viking Defense at home against the Cards, and I’m taking a shot with Jason Hanson this week at home against the Jets. This could be a game in which he gets 3-4 FGs, as the Lion defense is good enough to keep the game close, but the Jet offense could fail to score TDs this week, which was Hanson’s problem last week. I do like those two moves.
So this week, I’m rolling with a couple of my stash-and-hope RBs in my starting lineup, but there’s no way I’m starting Mike Williams (Sea) against the Giants. Here’s what I’m rolling with and by the way, my current stash-and-hope RBs now are: Willis McGahee, Chester Taylor, Anthony Dixon, Ken Darby, Bernard Scott, and even Clinton Portis. That’s pathetic I have to devote my entire roster to these guys, but it is what it is.
QB: Tom Brady
RB: Adrian Peterson
RB: Willis McGahee
WR: Greg Jennings
WR: Mike Williams (TB)
WR: Jeremy Maclin
Flex: Chester Taylor
TE: Jacob Tamme
PK: Jason Hanson
I have a feeling this lineup will win this week and score about 125 points. Let’s see how close I come to that prediction.
