Did week seven suck or what?? Did anyone in your starting lineup NOT get hurt? We all know the feeling of beating an opponent who has a player post a zero thanks to an injury and we LOVE it. We’re fantasy mercenaries and its collateral damage- “Sorry brosef!” Conversely, we know what it’s like to be on the other side of the coin, when that one goose egg probably screwed you out of a coveted “W”. And all you can do is grind your teeth and seethe.
In probably the lamest fantasy game ever played, I started Marshawn Lynch, Tim Hightower and Darren McFadden against a dude who started Earnest Graham and Beanie Wells. The combined point total of those five players was 13. But the saddest part is the implications week seven will have on the rest of the season.
Thanks to being in the middle of a particularly ruthless stretch of bye weeks, this week could suck just as bad for a lot of fantasy owners. Who is this Alfonso Smith dude? I don’t know either but I’m starting him this week. Who is Kregg Lumpkin? Beats me but he deserves consideration next week.
At this rate, we may all be vying for the right to start “Billy, the blind kid in 4C” a week from now.
