Moved up 2 spots to 3rd place (tied for 1st by record) this week. I was the first team in the league to put up 200 points in a game (won 213-114). Not only that, but I beat the 1st place guy who has been just crushing teams. Well, that was in great part because the poor guy has his entire team riding on the Eagles. He’s got McNabb, Westbrook and the Eagles D. Makes it tough when they all get shut down. For me, Larry Johnson and 4TDs, Colston and 2 TDs, Reggie Wayne and 3TDs… hard to lose. I also snagged Tom Brady from free agency. Wish I had started him, he scored 46 points in my league. Not like it mattered, but there’s nothing wrong with running up the scoreboard.
Next week I play the guy in 7th place. He’s the one who I gave Carson Palmer to. Too bad Alexander won’t be playing in week 9… but I think my team is stacked enough for now. I’ve got Muhammad and Thomas Jones against the Dolphins, Rivers agains the Browns, LJ against the Saints, Colston vs the Bucs, and Walker against the Steelers… Minny D is playing the 9ers. Those should be pretty favorable matchups. I’m too iffy about that Colts-Pats game to be very confident in Tom Brady… although I might change my mind.
Also, the new 1st place guy is playing 4th place, who also has a tough team. I’m hoping for an upset. 2nd place is against last place, so I’d need a huge upset there.
