A Miracle for Miracle

Wow. 0.1 points. It looks like Miracle got his miracle win. That is, unless there’s a dirty rotten midweek adjustment that flips the outcome. Tough luck, Ocho.

As far as awards, there are two big items coming out of Week 6. The first and most obvious is the Sneaky Dogthat goes to Miracle for pulling off that narrow narrow win. Unreal. The next big news item is that the Weekly Skin is going to push again. That means there are going to be 5 skins up for grabs in Week 7 and the mark to shoot for will be 126.2. Scores were down all around the league, so our top score was a bit lower than past weeks. Juice takes home the Big Man o’ The Week with his league high 118.4. Low Joe o’ The Week goes toJohann51 (aka The Gravyboat) as he put up a paltry 70.8 points. He also gets the Sunday Sally for losing by the largest margin, 70.8-114.3. That means ShortBus gets the Steamroller this week.

Sequester Grundelplith MD finally took a loss, and he now finds himself 1 win up on The Iron PriceThe Juice, and ShortBus though the tie puts 4-1-1 The Iron Price in 2nd Place alone. I’ve already accepted the fact that I’m going to be knocked out of the playoffs by one of you bastards involved in that tie. Going into Week 7 we have two major matchups to keep an eye on. 4-2 ShortBus will be facing 4-1-1 The Iron Price and 4-2The Juice takes on 3-2-1 Butkus My Ditka. This could be a big week for getting a real look at a playoff picture.

Good luck in Week 7, Punch Drunkards!

Two men enter. One man leaves.

Deadlock

First, WE HAVE A MESSAGE BOARD!

Unbelievable. A tie in a league with fractional points is about the most rare thing you can see. Sure, it’s technically as arbitrary as barely winning by .1 points, but in terms of impact it’s nuts. This is the kind of thing that screws up standings for the entire season. Way to go, guys. It’ll be interesting to see if midweek adjustments show up to cure the deadlock between Butkus My Ditka and The Iron Price.

The Week 3 tomfoolery has now left our esteemed reigning champ sitting alone atop the standings at 3-0.Butkus My Ditka and The Iron Price sit just behind him with their nonsensical 2-0-1 records. The pack has been shuffled up a bit as we now have a group of three sitting at 2-1 with four teams sitting at 1-2 behind them. And, of course, there’s two unfortunate schmucks at the bottom at 0-3.

In terms of weekly awards, this was a fairly uninteresting week (except for the tie!). Sequester Grundelplith MD (aka 3HB) was the top scorer with 134.6 points and takes the Big Man o’ The Week. He also gets theSteamroller for beating Miracle by 48.3 points. That makes Miracle once again both the Sunday Sally andLow Joe o’ The Week. You can’t fault him too much though. He was only 0.2 points behind Butkus and The Iron Price with his 86.3 to their 86.5. Which brings me to that mess. I thought we were going to have the season’s first Sneaky Dog as it seemed like Matt Prater was going to sneak Butkus into a win. Instead we have a tie at 86.5 points. Midweek adjustments could change things, but as of right now we have a freakin’ tie. It’s also worth noting that The Gravyboat hung on for dear life Monday night to pull out a win over Growler Powerby 0.3 points. That could be another midweek adjustment nightmare. No one topped the 154.9 mark to win theWeek 3 Skin which means it’s going to push to next week. The number we’re shooting for to win the Week 3 & 4 Skin will be 144.5.

Week 4 will feature a marquee matchup between Sequester Grundelplith and Butkus My Ditka that will determine who sits in first place. Various other matchups between 2-1 and 1-2 teams will be worth watching to see how things shake out. Good luck in Week 4!

DON’T FORGET BYES START THIS WEEK!!!!

Rodgers and Butkus top charts going into Week 3

Two weeks down in Punch Drunk Wonderland, and it looks like Butkus My Ditka is sitting pretty with a points edge at the top of a 4-way tie among 2-0 teams. He’s just edging out Prestige Worldwide (c’mon man!). It’s nice to see that the reigning champ can still put up a win with AP and TRich putting up relatively pedestrian days.

Let’s take a look at awards for Week 2. The Week 2 Skin goes to Butkus My Ditka as he barely edged out the 154.5 target score with his 155.4 in Week 3. That sets the bar pretty high for the Week 3 Skin at 154.9. Skin action also means the Kreeb takes home Big Man o’ The Week and the beating he put on Miracle means he takes home the Week 2 Steamroller while devling out the Sunday Sally to Miracle. That’s two weeks in a row as the Sally for Miracle. Rough start. Low Joe o’ The Week goes to The Gravyboat and his paltry 66.1 points that he put up against The Iron Price. We didn’t have a Sneaky Dog again this week.

Let’s take a quick look at the standings going into Week 3. The most significant matchup of the week will beButkus My Ditka facing off against The Iron Price. This will be the only battle between undefeated teams this week. Who will stay undefeated? Who will stay defeated? And, will Miracle win (?) another Sunday Sally?

Experts don’t know shit! (Week 2)

It can’t be summed up better than Shane from his league: PEYTON FUCKING MANNING! Juice scored big in working out that offseason trade. Manning put up a league high 46.2 points and helped Juice beat the rest of the Denver Broncos that were on Ocho’s roster.

For as much as some of us gloat and trash talk about fantasy football success, in the end this shit is just random. You can read up on analysis from all of the fantasy “experts” you like, but you’re probably better off throwing darts at a board or letting your daughter select your roster by smearing shit on her players of choice (my future method). First off, how’d those highly drafted players do for you in Week 1? I bet they weren’t running backs. A quick read…

Running Backs are Dead. Long Live Running Backs.

Running backs sucked this week. This was the first Week 1 for as far back as I could go in stats in which the average of the Top 10 WRs surpassed the average of the Top 10 running backs. Even guys that had decent numbers like Adrian Peterson still looked shitty. 78 yards and a TD on the first play from scrimmage and then 15 yards and a TD in the rest of the game (he also had a receiving TD). While good, it’s frustrating. Poor Darby (read: Suck it Darby!).

One week down and it’s time to delve out the weekly awards. First off, the Week 1 Skin goes to The Juice as he snuck up and passed 3-Ho’ Punchers (I don’t recognize Prestige Worldwide…just go with 3HP and move on) Monday night. He put up the top score with 154.5 points. Those kind of numbers smell like there could be pushes for a few weeks. The Juice also wins the Big Man o’ The WeekThe Steamroller goes to The Iron Price as he just brutalized Miracle’s team made up of the “best keeper situation in the league”. I guess that Wilson, Wilson, and Spiller law firm was still on summer vacation. On the suck side of the awards, the aforementionedMiracle takes home the Low Joe o’ The Week and was easily this week’s Sunday Sally. Oh yeah, and his bench outscored his starting roster 73.6-60.8. You know what that means….Miracle joins the exclusive club of Punch Drunkards to “win” The Little Bench. Rough week for the Miracle.
