These are the days you live for as a fantasy owner. Playing against a fellow division leader and trailing the overall point leader by about 70 points entering the weekend, my boys did this:


Big Ben: 45.8

Conner: 14.3

McCaffrey: 36.8

Steelers D: 15.0


I've got Dion Lewis, Larry Fitz, Westbrook/Humphries, Jared Cook and Tavecchio left and about a 90-point lead. Too bad Hopkins and E. Sanders are on a bye, I could push for 200 this week. I still might,  :shocking: although an easy win will be more than enough.

I usually don't engage in this thread, but today one of my best teams was a special kind of suck. With my RB1 and WR1 on bye and my RB2 hurt, I was forced to start the following:



Mike Davis

Ty Mont

Doug Baldwin

Sterling Shepard


Vance McDonald

Dan Bailey



I did not expect a high-scoring week by any means, but a team total of 47.8 points in a PPR league has to be a new all-time low by at least 25 points. The sad thing is that putting Gore and Doyle in my lineup would have only got me to 70  :mad:  :mad:


The last four weeks, I have played the high scorer three times. The other week, he was inside the top four. I started out 3-0 and was inside the top four scorers every time. I have obviously lost five straight. It's about time things start changing for the better.

Do Fox Sports and Joe Buck actually think the Grand Canyon is 277 miles deep??? 


All I know is it sure felt that way when I was climbing out of it  :lol:

I am not sure your assessment of Houston Rbs is correct. Miller and Blue seem to share snaps 55/45.. very close to 50/50


I know it has moved that way in recent weeks, but I'm not quite ready to call it a split backfield. Last week, the snap count was 41-25 Miller.

Isn't 2 minute situation a subset of hurry up? Seems weird to have both categories.


Fair point. I was thinking more about listing each of the meaningful situations when I was doing the article than trying to reducing the number of categories. The two usually get lumped together, so your point makes a lot of sense.

I almost think hurry up is more like less than a minute with only like 1 timeout. 2 minutes is a long if you only need to go like 30-40 yards to kick a field goal


I think seafoam is thinking along the same lines that I am.
I'll just say that when I did two-minute, I was thinking about who is usually on the field at the end of each half. When I did hurry-up, I was thinking more about no-huddle and negative game script scenarios, which aren't always strictly end-of-half situations.
