GWJFFL 2008 - Week 7+ Catchall

Pages

Not enough chatter the last 2 weeks to justify a weekly thread.* I'll start a new one at the end of the regular season with a wrapup.

*Admittedly I haven't had enough time or energy to do the threads justice, either, but hopefully, the league itself isn't suffering too much.

Losing last week made me a sad panda. I got Andre Johnson'ed.

If it makes you feel any better, my opponent more than DOUBLED my score...

9th Ward Boyz 52.4
kaostheory 121.5

But the Saints kicked some a$$, and I got to hang out with Grump and fam.

So, I'm not too sad about the weekend.

Losing last week made me a sad panda. I got Andre Johnson'ed.

I'd say the triple threat of Rivers, Gates & Jackson did you in. If it makes you feel better, my opponent last week started Jonathon Stewart AND DeAngelo Williams last week for about 50 points. They probably didn't even score 10 combined this week.

Oh, and Westbrook is hurt. Someone had to pick up the slack.

Good game all around. Gave me my bloody nose!

I can't wait to lay an egg come playoffs again this year!

Jeeze I'm lucky. I just took a look at the divisional standings and I've been a disappointing 3-3 but my divisional opponents are a combined 2-10.

I also play the ROFLcopters in week 9 when both Reggie Bush and Frank Gore have their bye.

Great - I get him this week. 4-3, here we go...

Don't mind me. My ROFLcopters are just trying to fly low under the radar, but dang I've never had a team like this before.

KT, here's hoping my WRs have a good game to make up for Bush and Gore's 40+ points.

Derek Anderson, keep sucking please. You are the only hope I have!

This is the third week in a row for me that EA's Live Scoring has shown last week's lineups and team-to-team matchups. Am I the only one getting this?

Help me, Eddie Royal. You're my only hope.

I think it's caused by some cached Javascript - refreshing, or at worst clearing out your cache manually and refreshing, usually seems to work.

I won by 0.5 points this week, thanks to Cutler and Royal.

Grrrr.... Not that I thought I'd win, but still...

See Grump, that's what you get when you rank me last!

Meh. I was basically ranking your drafts. If you look at my record(s), I clearly have no idea WTF I'm talking about.

Edit: Oh wait, you're talking about the power rankings I posted earlier this week. Yeah, those aren't mine, they're EA's.

EA wrote:

The power ranking of a team is based on the team's standing in three categories: W/L record, total points and "team breakdown." The team breakdown category calculates what your team record would be had it played all the other teams in your league each week of the season.

Within these categories, a power ranking is awarded rotisserie-style. For example, if there are 12 teams in your league, the team with the best W/L record would receive 12 points for that category, the team with the next best record would receive 11 points, and so on, with the team with the worst record receiving 1 point. The same ranking system is applied for total points scored and team breakdown. The scores for each category are then totaled to create the overall power ranking.

Here's the latest:
1. Blacksheeps PUP list 35
2. Old Mans Depends 33.5
3. This is KARMAs TEAM 28.5
4. Legion and the Pussycats 26
5. Elliottxs Hammer 25
6. Minaseans 20.5
7. trowans BrownStains 18.5
8. Logan s Lollipop Mafia 12.5
9. Grumps Chumps 12
10. Leaps Peeps 10.5
11. Baggas Titz 8
12. Stricniners 4

My team has gotten lazy like the Cowboys lately. I can see a first round playoff loss coming rapidly.

Oh I feel so bad for you, a playoff loss.

Maybe. I've got a good number of my starters on bye, though I do get Larry Fitzgerald back this week. I will miss Matt Forte deeply.

Moving on up....to that deluxe apartment in the sky.

No doubt. Forte is the 3rd highest scoring RB in the league. And I just lost the 4th highest scoring one, Reggie Bush.

I've still got Peterson and Chris Johnson, but you've still got Barber and Slaton.

Seriously, our RB drafting was off the hook. We've each got 3 in the top 12.

I would sure like to get something out of Marques Colston this week.

Here's to Colston not giving you many points this weekend. After all, I'm looking at either starting JTOSully or Bulger. I miss you already Cutler. May your hand be alright and you use this bye week to fix it!

I could say something a$$hol-y like, "Well, after those three I don't have much depth" but I'm pretty sure the rest of the league would start sizing my neck up for the noose.

I'm doing pretty OK for RB depth. After those three, I've got Mewelde Moore and Chester Taylor.

Moore's production will drop when Parker returns to the starting role, but he'll at least get the touches Mendenhall was supposed to get this year.

Taylor good for a few points per game, and some good cover-my-ass if Peterson goes down.

You've got Darren McFadden, you're hardly hurting for a 4th RB. 35th ranked RB for your #4 ain't so bad. Mewelde Moore's only one spot higher.

Rudi Johnson at #5 kinda stings though.

I've been doing so bad but such is life Hope to start doing better either way it's all good.

Rudi was a flyer. I don't recall when I took him, but I know it was late. late, late and I needed to pick another one up just in case something didn't pan out on the other backs. He did have one good game, if I recall

Need a win, need a win, need a win....

Finally got most people healthy + all the bye BS past me. Finishing strong, only to get crushed in the playoffs.
