Fantasy Football 2013: week 10

ULUS-10200_1382511238_816

Why is the image so uplifting?  Due to the fact I won in both my leagues this week.  I should make a speech but the image says it all.

To top it off, it was Rivalry Week in my league [Football Flop] – which I dubbed the Rivalry & Redemption series.  I created a “rival” for each team in my league: some for better reasons than others, but a reason nonetheless.

Why have one week of rivals where the bragging rights last all year long?  The idea is to have rematches the same season…to either set things right or prove the point. Bragging rights could still be had, but with harder work.

I guess that proves I had a slight edge over my rival: making a truly fascinating start of the rivalry; and my overall two-league win.

For fairness sake, I will remind the fact I lost to AZ Devils the week prior by less than ten points…but that was not rivalry week.

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


Half Measure Beats The Braillers to Grab 10th Place

 

Half Measure (4-6) 145.85

The Brailers (4-6) 124.10

Half Measure (4-6, 1,318.45 points) beat The Braillers (4-6, 1,259.30 points) 145.85 – 124.10, led by Robert Griffin III with 41.45 points and Mark Ingram who had 25.40.

However, Half Measure came out of the Sunday night game ahead by 7.85.

 

Smooth Moves by Half Measure

  • Half Measure saw their third-largest single-week point total by a player this season with Robert Griffin III scoring 41.45 points. The score was also high enough to rank fifth in the league.
  • Was smart to sit the Seattle Seahawks Defense this week, which had 20.00 points, the lowest DEF score on the team.
  • Made the right move in benching Jeff Maehl, who had 1.50 points, the lowest total of any starting WR on Half Measure.
  • The 25.40 points scored by Mark Ingram was the third-highest score of any RB in the league this week.
  • Devin Hester has now overachieved in six straight games after scoring 15.00 points against a projected 8.04.

  • Half Measure snapped their three-game losing streak with the win.
  • The RBs on Half Measure collectively had their best week of the season with 31.80 points.
  • Anquan Boldin did little to help Half Measure, underperforming versus projections for the fifth straight game with 2.90 points against a projected 10.21.
  • The draft continues to pay off for Half Measure, which got 94.4% of their points from players they drafted.

AZ Devils was the first to put up points and by Sunday was already out in front 2.50 – 0. They lost that advantage after the early Sunday games and trailed 106.90 – 102.05. After the late Sunday games, the lead changed again, and they went ahead 146.55 – 133.40.
