SoSG Fantasy Football Week 9 Update (Week 10 Smack Thread)

The Thursday Ravens-Falcons game notwithstanding, I'm here to discuss results from Week 9 of the SoSG Fantasy Football League. That's right, Mr. LA Sports Czar Fan Guru Jedi Master is letting me take the reins here--which is dangerous, since I know about as much about football as Vma knows about baseball, or movies, or anything else for that matter.

But in all seriousness, I'm honored that Mr LA Sports Fan opted to play Commissioner and nine other SoSG readers are taking part. So hopefully, I don't do you all a disservice and overcome my football (especially fantasy football) naivete to recap a big Week 9.

Dusty Baker 93 (7-2) upset by Nic J 98 (3-6): In just his second loss of the season, Dusty Baker (7-2) looked to Wes Welker in his starting lineup, and Welker delivered a pathetic four points. Not that Dusty had a lot of other options; his benched player only contributed five points at the WR slot. And, so, Nic J took control of the head-to-head matchup, thanks in part to his kicker Akers who had four FG and two extra points to amass 15 points for the week. Fear the foot.

Jason 49 (2-7) slaughtered by Mr. LA Sports Fan 119 (3-6): The battle of 2-6 teams did not go well for Jason, who depended on Seattle RB Lynch to back up his first-stringer from Cincinnati; Marshawn only delivered four points (which I suppose is over 8% of the total week's points, so that isn't all that bad). Meanwhile, Mr. LA Sports Fan had the week's top score, overcoming Thomas Jones' putrid three-point performance through 31-point and 18-point contributions from others.

Professor Dittmore 98 (7-2) beats Karina 92 (5-4): The Professor sat Buffalo WR Evans, which worked out well (he would have contributed only 3 points)--but rode the shoulders of Rodgers, the Cal alum and under-rated Green Bay QB, to victory. Karina was close behind thanks to a great 26-point contribution from Minnesota's Adrian Peterson, but benching Larry Fitzgerald at the WR slot (he had 10 points) was a mistake that would have made the difference in the matchup. Sigh.

Paul 81 (5-4) loses to Meaniebreanie 95 (4-5): Paul can't blame Charger WR Sevi Ajirotutu (whose name rocks the house btw), given his 23-point performance that was the team's second-best contribution this week. But the most points across both teams in the matchup went to Meaniebreanie's Terrell Owens, the volatile Bengals WR, who picked up 26 fantasy points despite his team losing on Monday night.

Spanky 65 (4-5) crushed by Mr. Customer 109 (5-4): Two 4-4 teams met, but Spanky did not come out on top this week; luckily, the benching of Ochocinco (who had only one point) wasn't the deciding factor in Spanky's demise. No, Mr. Customer got an unlikely 18-point contributions from Giants WR Nicks, whose 18 points helped propel Mr. C to victory.

So there you have it, fantasy football recapped for the masses. Week 10's big matchup is Mr. Customer vs. Dusty Baker, with the other four head-to-head plays being Meaniebreanie vs. Mr. LA SportsFan, Spanky vs. the Professor, Jason vs. Nic J, and karina vs. Paul. Go to it, sports fans!

Great recap, Saxy. We'll get you watching the gridiron yet.

karina said...

Well, my dear Sax, I don't know anything about football, but I'm having the time of my life playing with my sistah and the guys.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I only have three guys playing in the early set. This is the most bored I'll be on a Sunday since football started.

Spanky said...

@ Czar
Same here. And one of them is my kicker so it is really like only 2 players.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Those are some, er, unique uniforms the Bears are sporting there.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Whoever has Cutler just got two easy points.

Oh. Oops.

Spanky said...

F!U! Cutler!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

All three guys in the red zone at the same time.

Freeman just connected to give me one TD. Browns can't get going, so I don't get anything from Hillis. Still waiting on MJD and the Jags.

Spanky said...

P.Ditty has Favre as QB and the Bears D. Kinda defeats the purpose, no.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hedging his bets, maybe?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I am going to regret starting Vernon Davis, aren't I?

Spanky said...

Your Tamme prophecy from the other day is becoming true. fucker

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fucking Paul. He has two of the top fantasy QBs, one of whom is on a bye, and he doesn't even bother trading one of them. WTF?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Day of the kicker. Six field goals already.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Sonofabitch, Hillis.

Spanky said...

Next time I play FF I won't be stubborn and pick players from every team. Depending on OchoCinco and third rate players for points fucking sux.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Poor Nic. He's got six guys going and a grand total of 12 points to show.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I should have picked up the Colts' D.

Spanky said...

All I know, Bironas will be my kicker forever because the dude don't miss.

Spanky said...

What happened to A.P.?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Woohoo Peyton Hillis!

Spanky said...

Go Blount Go!

Spanky said...

I am going to make sweet,sweet Ebonic love to LaGarret Blount.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

What's the difference between regular love and ebonic love? Poor grammar?

Spanky said...

^LaGarrette. haha

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Shit, how does Tampa Bay have two scoring drives with the quarterback throwing the ball a grand total of three times?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Bill Plaschke must have returned to twitter just to piss me off. Dissing Kobe for the Black Ops commercial, and now Peyton Hillis? The man knows how to push my buttons.

Spanky said...

What did he say about hillis?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

"Peyton hillis? Really? Still?"

Spanky said...

Plaskes' an idiot. Look at Mr.Cs' and Dustys' score. Who knew?!

rbnlaw said...

Black Cats have crossed someone's path.

Good day for the Gunners.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

When MJD runs the ball, good things happen. Take note of that, Del Rio.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuck. Three yards from six points and the Browns blow it.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Woohoo MJD!

Spanky said...

Your game is getting out of hand.Looks like Meanie is going to need a huge game from the accused.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The women of SoSG are no match for my mother, the Czar.

Spanky said...

Well fuck me.

Spanky said...

Got a TD from OchoCinco taken away from me.

(cries)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

How has Freeman only thrown the ball five times?

Spanky said...

Got my OchoCinco TD.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

HOLY SHIT MJD

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Woohoo Freeman gets the TD!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I warned Ditty. I told him to not trust Favre. But did he listen? Did he heed my advice? Nope.

Spanky said...

P.Ditty did not get any points from that fumble because he has ChicagoD and Favre.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I know they offset, but that's the problem. If he had another QB, he'd be getting the actual points. Having the QB of the team playing against the defense just defeats the purpose.

Spanky said...

Cutler is doing good. Fuck, I was saving him for Brees' bye but he was pissing me off and I let him go with ESG.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Another Favre pick.

Josh S. said...

I'm driving my Viking-loving nephew nuts with my accurate predictions of Favre interceptions.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

At least by picking up Fred Jackson, I prevent others from getting him and his juicy 21 points.

Spanky said...

I had him on my team a long time ago. Geez, they leave me and do good. Typical.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The only reason why I'm keeping Deion Branch and Patrick Crayton is so that nobody else can get them. Though I'll probably drop Crayton after this week since Floyd and V-Jax are coming back.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Smart move by Nic to drop Folk.

Spanky said...

You Shyster. Haha!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Dusty's gotta be going nuts right now. Turner did nothing, Foster's been okay, Manning hasn't thrown for a single TD, Marcedes has just two points.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I have three of the top four scorers, one of whom is on the bench.

Spanky said...

Andre Johnson is killing me and that TD the Colts D got taken away right now is going to, too.

Spanky said...

Whew! FG instead of TD for Tamme or Brown.

MeanieBreanie said...

Epall Y'all
Excellent recap Saxy!
It's been a blast playing with the guys and my sistah from another mother. I was a fantasy football virgin but now I am learning albeit the hardway.

This week the Czar is on his way to handily kicking my ass :(
(cries)

Spanky said...

OchoCinco my put down.

MeanieBreanie said...

^Epale

Spanky said...

^heard

Spanky said...

WTF! Mistake city.

Spanky said...

What's the haps, Meanie?

MeanieBreanie said...

Hey Spank,
Just getting caught up after being out of town. What about you?

MeanieBreanie said...

My players have chosen to hibernate today. Currently I have the least amount of points of anyone on the board.
(cries)

Spanky said...

Meanie
Not much,Just recovering from spontaneous drinking sessions with a buddy who is splitting town for good.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I officially have the three top scorers so far. One is on the bench.

(cries)

MeanieBreanie said...

LASC - don't you think you are punishing me enough?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

No, no I don't.

Spanky said...

If you were to tell me that I would be within 10 points of P.Ditty by the second Sunday game I would have said "You're Crazy!"

MeanieBreanie said...

LASC, I don't know what I did to piss you off but remember that karma can be a bitch.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I lost five of my first seven games. Karma's in effect right now.

Spanky said...

I should have played Mr.C this week.

Spanky said...

Jay Cutler with 19 points. Well shut my mouth!

MeanieBreanie said...

I have 18 points spread across 4 players. Totally pathetic!

Spanky said...

I've been there Meanie. Trust me I know what you are going through.

MeanieBreanie said...

Joe Suck has definitely colored his hair. It's a horrible job. His colorist should be shot.

Spanky said...

Gotta go.I'll be back and hopefully winning upon my return.

MeanieBreanie said...

Austin has sucked so bad the past few weeks I benched him. Of course he's looking good today.
(cries even more)

Mr. Customer said...

Hey kids! I'm getting crushed today with Interception Machine Eli back in action. C'est la vie.

Spanky said...

I have the lead!

Spanky said...

WTF! Dallas is beating the NY Football Giants. HaHa!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fucking Thomas Jones.

Spanky said...

Chad Henne ended up with 11 points. Ditty Fail.

Spanky said...

Karina is lucky she did not use the Chiefs D. -7 points so far.

Dusty Baker said...

Just had a chance run-in with SoSG Sax at the (redacted) airport. How random! We did not have time to make sweet, sweet love, alas. Plus, our wives were there.

Mr. Customer said...

who knew?

MeanieBreanie said...

It's Mama Meanie's birthday and I need to head out for her celebration. Mr. LASC, easy please.

GO COWBOYS!

Spanky said...

Happy Birthday Mama Meanie!

Spanky said...

I am going to make sweet,sweet love to Matt Cassel. I am such a slut today.

Mr. Customer said...

Goddamn Orton screws me over by benching him AGAIN!

Spanky said...

Come on Ram D. Don't fuck up my shit man.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Looks like Nic's winning streak will be short-lived.

Spanky said...

He changed his team name and fucked up his mojo. It happened to me last week.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm willing to trade Thomas Jones to anyone who wants him.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I like how Buck, Aikman and Johnson are all talking about how great the Cowboys have been just as they choke the game away.

Spanky said...

I have the Cardinal game. Lucky for me I don't have to listen to that bullshit.

Spanky said...

Fuck it. I am celebrating garbage TD's.

FUCK YEAH CASSEL!

Spanky said...

Stop throwing the ball DAMMIT. No INTS!

Spanky said...

OH FUCK!

MATT CASSEL. YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU WANT TO ME! ANYTHING!

Spanky said...

I HATE the fucking niners.

Dusty Baker said...

I hate the fucking Giants. The ones who play baseball, I mean.

Who is going to watch the Sunday night game?

Mr. Customer said...

I'll be around, but I'm doing 15 things at once.

Mr. Customer said...

I need Mendenhall to go apeshit.

Dusty Baker said...

I need Wes Welker to go apes....oh.

Spanky said...

Come on Accused. You can throw it to Ward better than that.

Dusty Baker said...

"Illegal touching on the kicking team."

Sounds like they molested little kids.

rbnlaw said...

Ben Rothelistwebergerstein is not a smart feller.

He might be a fart smeller.

Mr. Customer said...

Balls. I'm going back to .500

rbnlaw said...

Mr. C,
What the hell with Torres? Brilliant v. Chelsea; for shite v. Stoke.

Ankle injury, but he's playing for Espana. That boy's an enigma.

Mr. Customer said...

@rbnlaw

He is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. Same old frustrating Reds. At least they're not awful ALL the time now.

Mr. Customer said...

The ankle didn't seem like it was a major setback. Who knows how much action he'll see for the Spanish?

Dusty Baker said...

What is this strange Premiership you all speak of?

*avoids football news after pitiful loss*

Dusty Baker said...

Torres got me -3 points in fantasy league today.

Mr. Customer said...

It was putrid. I can't deny it.

At least Inter lost. Bite me, Rafa.

Spanky said...

Lakers losing in the 4th and P.Ditty is going to get garbage points. What comes around goes around.

Spanky said...

NicJ left Tom Brady on the bench. Poor lad.

Spanky said...

Stop throwing to 60 minutes DAMMIT.

Spanky said...

Hines Ward you fucking T$@t get your sorry ass in there.

FUCK YOU 60 MINUTES,THE ACCUSED AND P.DITTY. Not really P.Ditty. But the other fools yes.

MR. F said...

Phoenix is 22-40 from 3. WTF.

Steve Dittmore said...

sorry to get here late, but all's I gots to say is...

SIXTY MINUTES
SIXTY MINUTES
SIXTY MINUTES

Spanky said...

*flips bird at the Ditts*

Steve Dittmore said...

:)

That was huge tonight after Matt Cassel had an out-of-body experience.

Dusty Baker said...

Crazy day in fantasy football.

Unless I lose 12 points tomorrow on Phiwwies' defence, I'm good to go.

Spanky said...

Like I said P.Ditty, What comes around goes around. Them garbage points are a blessing and a curse, man. Plus Hines Ward getting his neck snapped in two did not help me.

MR. F said...

Mike Wallace ensured a fantasy victory for me.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Thank goodness the Steeler defense decided to roll over and die, or I might have had a precarious situation on my hands.

Fred's Brim said...

you know it's a strange day when both the Bills and Cowboys get wins

Spanky said...

You'd think the Cowboys won the Super Bowl the way the media is fawning over them today. Do me,Cowboys.Do me.

Spanky said...

I am the only one to comment on this thread for the Monday night game. You have got to be kidding me. Front runners the lot of Y'alls.
