Just missed it: Week Ten

Here are more close calls for big plays and TDs from Week Ten. Again, I think this stuff is valuable if you are not able to watch the games because almost scoring or making a big play is a lot better than not even coming close to doing so. As always, these are fairly random in order and not exactly crafted like a wordsmith would. This is merely an FYI.

QB Tom Brady had WR Wes Welker for a sure TD, but Welker dropped it running toward the endzone.
Pass to Patriot TE Rob Gronkowski in the endzone, and PI on the defense was called on the play.
Pass to WR Brandon Lloyd in the endzone, but it was broken up. Later, he had a pass thrown to him deep in the endzone, and defensive PI was called.
Pass to Torrey Smith in the endzone, could have had it, but incomplete. Later, he had another ball thrown to him in the endzone that was very close to a score, but it was incomplete. He did eventually score 2 TDs.
Pass to TE Brandon Myers in the endzone; he was wide open for the TD but it was too high and offensive PI was called [...]

Just missed it: Week Nine

I may have missed a few more near TDs than usual this week, but here is what I got from Week Nine in terms of passes in the endzone, near scores, and more.

Pass to WR Dwayne Bowe running to the endzone, was incomplete. On the same drive, he was open for a TD but it didn’t happen.
Pass to TE Dante Rosario in the endzone, but it was incomplete.
WR Calvin Johnson just missed the endzone on a 38-yard catch, but he was once again down at the one. Pass to Calvin later near the endzone, but it was incomplete.
Pass to WR TY Hilton in the endzone, but it was broken up. He also had a long TD, but he couldn’t hang on to it. He did eventually score, of course.
Pass to TE Jared Cook in the endzone was caught, but he was out of bounds.
Pass to WR Kenny Britt in the endzone, incomplete, this was before he scored.
Pass to Kendall Wright in the endzone, incomplete.
QB Peyton Manning’s endzone INT was intended for Eric Decker in the endzone; looked like the throw was slightly off.
Pass to WR James Jones in the endzone after his TD, but it was incomplete.
Pass to Bengal WR [...]

Week Eight: Totally missed it

We were very lucky this week with Hurricane Sandy. Based on all reports, the hurricane actually hit land 1-2 miles from our office, yet other than losing power for 1-2 days, nothing serious happened. The week was pretty tough still, since our entire full time staff (other than me) was displaced from their homes and just now (Thursday evening) were able to enter Brigantine, NJ, where they live.

While we really didn’t miss a beat with all the disruptions, a few things had to go this week, one of them being the “Just Missed it” stuff and Hansen on Strategy. I had started that and I was going to give a pretty comprehensive overview of all 32 teams and what to expect for the rest of the season, but the lost time this week made that impossible. But I will roll that out next week.

  • Position Battle Playing Time for First Full Week of Preseason Action August 13, 2014
    We continue to update the position battles around the league, but in this blog, I thought looking at preseason playing time would be interesting. The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the first-team offense or the backups. If you’re loo […]

  • Poll Result Analysis: RB Sleeper Candidate Targets August 12, 2014
    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]

  • How the New Focus on Defensive Penalties may Affect IDP August 11, 2014
    FantasyGuru.com IDP Analyst Corby Yarbrough can be found on Twitter @Corby_Yarbrough. Not that there is anything we as IDP players can do about it, but I just needed to vent my grief that an already inconsistent aspect of fantasy football has the potential to drive us even a little more crazy in 2014. Week One of the NFL preseason is in the books, and if the […]
