Fantasy Football 2013: week 9


That’s me again: taking a pounding.  I lost both matches this week.  The saddest note is how I could have won in one of my leagues had I played any other opponent; since our match ended up as the two highest-scoring teams.  It will also be an instant rematch, since week ten is rivalry week in my league.

Da’ Bears The Bears did beat the Packers this week; which was worth my defeats.

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

Mess on the Field Beats Half Measure, Adds To Their Pain

Mess on the Field (7-2) 125.40

Half Measure (3-6) 94.85

Mess on the Field got past Half Measure 125.40 – 94.85 due in part to Joe Flacco who got 31.00 points and Nick Folk who scored 23.00. Half Measure has had some misfortune and is on a three-game losing streak. Half Measure was led by Robert Griffin III with 16.25 points and Devin Hester who scored 13.30. Mess on the Field (7-2, 1,356.15 points) remains in first place while Half Measure (3-6, 1,172.60 points) stays down in 13th place.

AZ Devils Comes Back to Nip Flippy Flop

AZ Devils (4-5) 208.05

AZ Devils (4-5, 1,502.20 points) put up the fourth-highest score of the season, edging Flippy Flop (2-7, 1,321.15 points) 208.05 – 199.85 in a back-and-forth matchup.
