What are the odds of finishing 348,597th out of 383,333. Well, statistically it would be 1 in 383,333, but that doesn’t give me much solace.
Yes, that’s how bad I did last week for my fantasy football team. My score of 96.4 points was a mere 141.64 behind the winning score of 238.04 points. I wonder how the 34,736 people I beat feel about things…
Maybe this week I should just play against myself… at least I’d have a chance to win.
For this week, we go back to Draft Kings to again play the “NFL $1M Kickoff.” It’s only $3 to play so why not!
QB Tom Brady – Patriots vs Jacksonville; how could I go wrong?
RB Melvin Gordon – Chargers vs Vikings; Melvin likes playing in Big 10 country!
RB Mark Ingrim – Saints vs Carolina; I don’t know why I keep picking this guy
WR Calvin Johnson – Lions vs Broncos; Calvin is always ready for a big game!
WR Steve Smith Sr – Ravens vs Bengals; being a Bengals fan, I’ve got a bad feeling about their pass defense
WR Larry Fitzgerald – Cardinals vs 49ers; his scoring drought is over!
TE Tyler Eifert – Bengals vs Ravens; If Cincinnati has a chance, it will be because of their tight end
FLEX Marcus Wheaton – Steelers vs Rams; why would anyone keep picking a guy from the rival camp… but I do…
DST Raiders; look for Oakland to eat Johnnie
Marzetti Manzelli for lunch
Speaking of lunch, if I win this week, I’ll buy!
See you next Thursday morning.
