Mr. Wendy’s look back at Week 15

Each week @mr_wendy will be taking a look back at the week that was in the NFL. Here’s a look back at Week 15.

Last week some of you won your games to advance to the league championships. This is what we all play for. It’s our chance to get the big payouts and glory of bringing home a championship.

1. Johnny Manziel, Cleveland Browns

Well that game was nothing like what we saw from Johnny in the short time he played in the Buffalo game. The Browns offensive line looked like they didn’t want to block for Johnny at all. With almost no time to look down the field Johnny took a beating. I’m sure no one willingly started him? Who would have guessed he would bring down the play makers around him so much as well. The Cleveland offense is fantasy death for your league championships.

2. Chicago Bears offense

Falling from the 2nd highest scoring offense to the debacle we see now is mind blowing. Enter Jimmy Clausen this coming week to save the day. I’m all for selling high on Brandon Marshal this off season. Close the book on the Bears this season. This coming week if you have Forte or Alshon Jeffery it will be a sit on your edge of the seat moments as the hungry Lions defense will make life difficult for the struggling Bears. What a mess.

3. John Jenkins, New Orleans Saints

In one of my leagues this guy brought a team to the championship game. His 7 tackles were helpful, but with just over 2 minutes left in the game he man handled the Bears guard and sacked Culter giving his fantasy owner a narrow victory. Life is never dull in an IDP league.

4. Timmy Jernigan Baltimore Ravens

Another DT who showed up for the fantasy playoffs. 2 sacks for the rookie helped teams out last week. In deeper leagues he is taken I’m sure. For those of you with smaller rosters I would make some room for him if your in need of a DT.

5. Johnathan Hankins New York Giants

Another DT who showed up. 2.5 sacks last week. The interior guys really showed up. He was a favorite of mine and I’m glad he had a big game.

6. Philadelphia Eagles QB situation

Mark Sanchez will start again. Nick Foles is not cleared to return this week. Granted this will not matter next week for most…but keep an eye on this off season here.

My week 15 MVP’s:

QB Drew Brees (New Orleans Saints) – Dominated the Bears defense. 375 yards and 2 TD’s.

RB Jeremy Hill (Cincinnati Bengals) – 148 yards and 2 TD’S. His game took many to wins who had him.

WR Odell Beckham, Jr. (New York Giants) – Unless you were hibernating you saw highlights from this young rookie. 143 yards, 3 touchdowns on 12 catches. This was a dominating performance.

TE Greg Olson (Carolina Panthers) – 10 catch game for 110 yards. Even with out scoring a TD he was a top scoring TE.

KR De’Anthony Thomas (Kansas City Chiefs) – 156 punt return yards and the big TD secured him as my MVP.

DT Johnathan Hankins (New York Giants) – 2.5 sacks moved him into the top DT spot last week.

DE Jason Pierre-Paul (New York Giants) – Giants defense played well. 2.5 sacks and a Forced fumble.

LB Lavonte David (Tampa Bay Bucs) – 6 tackles, 6 assists, 1 sack and a forced fumble. Another day in the office for one of the highest ranked LB’s in the leagues.

CB William Gay (Pittsburgh Steelers) – 8 tackles, 2 pass defections, and the INT was a great game…but the Touchdown made it a MVP performance.

S Bradley McDougald (Tampa Bay Bucs) – 11 tackles along with 4 assists. Anyone in a tackle heavy format was loving that game.
