Playoff Watch

It is about that time of the year, we are half way through the season, and it is time to start thinking about playoffs! Seeing as how everyone will be involved in some sort of playoffs, it is important to see how your team is doing in comparison to everyone else in the league. The playoff bracket as it currently stands is as follows.

Ermahgerd Dehrnerd, Team Previews

Team Preview: Kyle

kyle-and-sadlerkyle-team

Ehrmagherd Dehrnerd (I don’t think I have ever spelled this the same way twice) probably thinks they should have won the league last year, as they always do. But after a playoff loss, ED is still looking for the ever elusive championship. In 2016, Kyle Novack will rely on the suspended players to bring him to glory. When asked about his team after the draft, Kyle said “I have the best team, and it helps that i’m playing against 11 bitches who know nothing about fantasy football” in a completely factual and entirely not made up answer.

 

QBs: A-

 

People want to look at Aaron Rodger’s season in 2015 and assume that he is on the decline. He did finish 12th amongst quarterbacks. That was without his star receiver, and with the most inept running game that the Packers have seen in quite some time. Even though he had a poor season, no one should expect that trend to continue. In the 7 seasons that Rodgers has played at least 15 games since 2008, last season is the only season where he was outside of the top 2 in Quarterback fantasy points. Don’t over think it. A lot of people think Dehrnerd’s other quarterback is poised for a breakout season. Marcus Mariota had an up and down season in his rookie year with Tennessee. He has the big play ability and should improve as many second year quarterbacks do, but that is not without question marks. Mariota is in a predominately running offense who would like to utilize the legs of DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry over the arm of Mariota. Mariota has some running ability himself, which helps his fantasy value, but he is not injury-averse. He missed 4 games last year, and could miss more if they ask him to run more often in 2016.

 

RBs: B

 

If Le’Veon Bell did not have to face a 3 game suspension to start the year, Novack’s running back corp would be one of the best in the CE league. It helps, that he has DeAngelo Williams to fill in during those weeks, but at age 33, Williams’ production could drop off at any moment. C.J. Anderson did not live up to expectations in 2015, but showed moments of greatness. With Ronnie Hillman now out of the picture, and Trevor Simeon running the offense, Kyle should expect a heavy workload out of his #2 Running back.  

 

WRs: C-

 

When you spend a high draft pick on a quarterback, you need to make sacrifices elsewhere. ED did that with Wide Receiver depth. He does not have a receiver on his roster without question marks. His stud is Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant, who had a very poor year in 2015, a lot due to injury. The big question marks when it comes to Bryant is how well he has recovered from his foot injury, and if he can play without Tony Romo, who will be out until mid-season. The silver-lining is that when Bryant played in 2015, he was still targeted 8.1 times a game. Jordan Matthews is playing in a bad Philadelphia offense with a rookie quarterback who hasn’t even played against Division 1 opponents, let alone NFL defenses. Steve Smith Sr. is 37 years old and coming off of a torn achilles. And Josh Gordon, the wild card of the league is suspended for the first 4 games and has only played in 5 regular season games since 2013. Kyle is hoping for the best with this group, but may have to rely on Terrelle Pryor and Ted Ginn Jr. and their ability to only run streaks if he is going to find top level production from this group.

 

TE: C+
Eric Ebron should gain more usage around the end zone with Calvin Johnson retired, but for the most part, he is simply one of the many guys in that second tier of Tight End. Add in an injury that has caused him to miss most of training camp, and Ebron should be considered a below average tight end with upside.

Week 6 Wrap Up

Week 6 was highlighted by a stat correction victory by a Klan’s krew who looked like they had no shot going into the week. We were all excited looking at the scores thinking we were going to have our first tie of the year, but points being taken away from McManus handed the Klan their 3rd win of the year keeping them just 1 game back in the West. Elsewhere around the league, we saw Simba finally crack the Hawkeye defense and put up an impressive 211.1 points. Also, The Legs had a nice bounce back week, and we saw the Hurricanes finally storm their way to a comfortable victory. Harbaugh fought out a win over the Chodes in a battle where Jordan Matthews struggled on Monday night keeping that one close until the 4th quarter.

  2. Please vote for the week 7 winners. I get lonely being the only one to vote on the match ups in the quick box score or preview 😦

Week 6 Standings

East: Simba and Harbaugh are tied at first with the Turkeys gobbling not far behind. A storm is brewing in 4th place, though. State Farm is in a tough spot right now.

West: Everton finds themselves in an unusual spot in 1st place. Team noname, The Legs, and the Klan are all creepin right beind them at just 1 game back. The Chodes are in last, but a win this week gets him right back in the mix.

Week 6 Power Rankings

Power Rankings: Good job with the rankings, Mr. Commissioner.

______________________________________________________________________

Below is a look at the highlights and lowlights from the week. I’m not going to say much about McManus being the difference in their game with the Klan, but…..

Team of the Week: Kooper’s Klux Klan (KKK)

I wrote him off before the week started thinking that there was no shot for him to win this week. With huge weeks from Stafford and Calvin, he was able to prevail with a much needed win to keep him within striking distance.

Disappointing Team of the Week: Everton Hawkeyes (EVTN)

They continue to be mediocre at best. They had nice performances from their QB’s and WR’s were decent. But playing a RB in your flex and getting a total of 16.7 between those 3 players is not going to help you win games. He wasn’t going to win because Simbas roar was too strong, but he had a chance to climb a bit in total points/average score with weak match ups this week.

Player of the Week: Matthew Stafford (KKK)

This shouldn’t be much of a shock since he has stuggeled much of the year and then comes out and puts up over 30 points and leads his NFL team to their first win of the year, and helps his real team (KKK) get their 3rd win of the year. If overtime didn’t happen in that game, the Klan would be sitting at 2-4 right now.

Disappointing Player of the Week: Eddie Lacy (RDBT)

He put up 4 points in a game where the Turkeys got lynched by the Klan by a difference of 7 points. Lacy is having one hell of a disappointing season thus far. We’ll see if this bye week will help him get healthy and maybe he’ll do something.
