Fantasy Football 2013: week 4


I won and I lost.  The victory caused the unseating of an undefeated team.  My defeat cemented my dead-last position in my own league.

[For the record, my teams are Half Measure and Flippy Flop.]


Half Measure Beats 49ers

Half Measure (2-2) 159.05

49ers (3-1) 114.30

Half Measure took down 49ers 159.05 – 114.30, led by the Tennessee Titans Defense, who recorded the second-highest player score of the week with 52.00 points. Half Measure piled up 32.9% more points than projected (119.68). 49ers just fell short of hitting their projections and got 91.7% of their projected 124.66 points. 49ers was done in by a substantial drop in scoring from last week’s 157.55 – 141.30 win against The Braillers. Both sides missed scoring opportunities as Half Measure had one starter turn in zero points and 49ers also had one. Half Measure (2-2, 585.40 points) remains in 10th place and 49ers (3-1, 602.55 points) stays in second place.
