Wes' Fantasy Football League, the running thread

  • Matthew O

    Rucker is only 1st because he has out scored my team thus far. 4-0 feels good. It really does.

  • Uh oh, it appears Rat-Trap Fever is going to fall from the undefeated ranks today with a resounding thud. Watch out for the VolBerserkers and the 3 game win streak!

    Rat-Trap Fever Regret Tracker

    Left Shonn Greene on the bench, where he scored the third-most points in the league and beat his projected point total by 242.7%, the third-highest percentage in the league.
    Rat-Trap Fever could have used more points from the TE position, where VolBerserker beat them 13.60 - 4.20.
    VolBerserker won the K position battle, beating Rat-Trap Fever 12.00 - 5.00.
    Marshawn Lynch had two season-lows this week. He scored a season-low 5.20 points and got only 39.1% of his projected point total, his lowest percentage of the season.
    The 2.00 points scored by the San Francisco 49ers Defense was a season-low for both scoring and for their performance against projections. They reached only 23.9% of their 8.37 projected points this week.
    What If

    If VolBerserker played Rat-Trap Fever every week, they would be 4-2 this season.
