MoFo Fantasy Football 2021 - The Season


The trick is not minding
Man. That trade was my worst decision. What a desperate play for a RB who didn’t even pan out.

Not much I could do though, since I had no other options really available. Now I need to win my last 3 games and hope the others ahead of me lose.

I have Kupp back, and maybe Patterson (likely) and Jones (unlikely) both returning this week may help with that, but my WR took a bit of a hit now. Hopefully either Smith or Higgins can bounce back.

Don't ya just love it when a guy has 3 catches and 2 of those go for Td's? I do.
We are both the source of the problem and the solution, yet we do not see ourselves in this light...

LOL 22% of Knox's catches this year are for TDs.
Basically Robert Tonyan of last year. Unfortunately I benched him this week.

Well crap. The cards were stacked against me going into this week, so I didn't have much hope going into the games. I had gambled on Mike Vrabel trying to be sneaky with his late RB add, as he used to play for the Pats, and I thought that maybe he was counting on using a guy on which there was very little film for ol' Bill to study. Turns out that was spot on, but unfortunately, it will not be enough. While Vrabel's secret weapon did do very well for me, I had both my RBs out this week, and Hines did close to nothing to help my team. Add to that a suboptimal performance from Stafford and Waller getting hurt, and that, as they say, is that.

The trick is not minding
Adding on the injuries yesterday, both McCaffrey (again) and Dalvin Cook were added to the list.
In Cooks case, he has been diagnosed with a dislocated shoulder. RB slot has suffered more than any other position this year, which isn’t surprising.
In CMC’s case, this is yet another injury to add to the last few years.

Well OBJ finally came alive with a new team. AB has to be back by this weekend id think, and so will Amari Cooper. Brought in over 150 points without them yesterday, but its all for naught. Ive already lost 7 games and have no playoff potential. All I can do is ruin anyone else chances. Please lean closer to your monitor so I can drink your tears.

Welp, that's prolly gonna do it. I guess 6-8 could get in but it's not likely.

Pretty sure I'm gonna finish with about as many points as multiple playoff teams, though.

I was actually favored to win by the projections, and though I had a path to victory all the way up until the final drive of the MNF game, ultimately I settled into the inevitable loss I had coming. That I always have coming.

My team really rises or mostly falls based on the floor of Lamar Jackson's weekly performances. He has had some great games, some gaudy stats, and some head-scratching duds. This week The Ravens managed to pull out the win against their divisional foes from Cleveland but that was despite Lamar throwing four interceptions versus one TD. He finished with a paltry 11.40 points against a 28.32 projection. I don't have the kind of squad that can dig me out of that kind of a hole very often. If he don't go big I don't get there.

Deebo Samuel continued to amaze. Even though he has become a default running back rather than a wide out he got another two touchdowns and over twenty fantasy points. Of course now Deebo is gonna be out for a couple weeks with a minor injury. Davante Adams had another more-than-solid game in the Packers win, going over a hundred yards on eight receptions...but he never found the endzone to spike his fantasy numbers into the twenties. And now he is on a BYE. Devonta Freeman did OK as Baltimore's defacto number one back, but he did not find the endzone this week either. Jerry Jeudy caught only two passes in the first half as Denver controlled their win with the ground game, and worst of all George Kittle who had three good games in a row caught only one pass on two targets for a lousy 1.80 points.

And yet despite all of that I still kinda had a shot, though a long one, with the Monday Night game. I only had Antonio Gibson left to play while PW had Terry McLaurin, J.D. McKissic, and Russell Wilson. In years past just having Wilson alone would be good for thirty-some points. Certainly not this year. As the game wore on Wilson was pretty ineffective, though he avoided any turnovers, and McLaurin was finding his QB is actually targeting other people in Washington uniforms for once. It came down to McKissic. All year Gibson has been a true workhorse, but when the Football Team gets down near the goal line his teammate McKissic comes in and gets the score. Which is exactly what happened last night. Antonio had 111 yards rushing plus seven short catches for another 35. That added up to 20.10 points! Which is great. But I needed spectacular. McKissic saw far fewer touches for 30 yards on the ground plus five catches for 26...but he scored two TDs. All of that gave him a total of...yup, 20.10 points.

Russell Wilson finally got one long drive at the end of the game. Had he thrown a pick in that drive I might have just had enough points to win. He did miss the two-point conversion that would have sent the game into OT. But even with all of that if Antonio Gibson had just one of McKissic's two scores that 12-or-so-point swing would have given me the victory.

If ifs and buts were candy and nuts then every day would be Christmas. This loss should keep me in twelfth place no matter what happens the rest of the way.

I hadn't checked my game since Monday morning, and I just jumped on to slot my guys in for this week...and somehow...I ended up winning! Metcalf had one of the worst games of his career, netting under 2 points. I am stunned!

Im looking to upset the #1 ranked Parrotheads this week, and oddly enough Im confident. Reality is so overrated.
